I'm conflicted, I don't know what to do.
I'm friends with a good Catholic woman. In short, she is everything I could ever want in a woman. She's beautiful, kind, devout, smart, and has incredible faith in God. She and I have great chemistry. We talk on and on all the time and we love spending time together.
In short, I've developed strong feelings for her. I don't exactly doubt that she reciprocates them, I can't help but feel that she must feel something for me too.
However, she is very strongly discerning joining a religious order. I realize this is good; if she has a vocation that is wonderful indeed.
I'm just wondering what I should do. Should I tell her how I feel before I miss the chance entirely? Or should I just let her go peacefully, pray for her, and accept the fact that Jesus will take much better care of her than I ever could.
What would you do? I just worry I might spend years of regret if I let her slip away entirely without ever letting her know how I feel. Don't get me wrong, of course I'd be nothing but happy for her if she joins the order. But I wonder if I should put this out on the table before its too late.
