A few weeeks ago I had posted a thread on CAF about meeting people, particularly men in my age group (I am female) and I got a lot of feedback that made me think and helped me figure things out. I don’t want to sound like I am bringing up the same points, but I was wondering if it would be an occasion of sin to go to a nightclub with a married couple from my work who have invited me.
I am not at all going to get drunk and probably will not even drink. I am not going hoping to get picked up. I would be going becuase I have been invited and it seems polite to go. A co-worker of mine who is an aspiring recording artist will be performing at this “open-mic” night. And yes, he music has pretty explicit lyrics, but it is not like I have never heard cuss words before.
I never go out anywhere and I think I’m afraid to try to meet other CAtholics. I think they will judje me becuase I don’t have a proffessional job. I’m trying to get over it and get brave enough to try to volunteer in some Catholic organization. I am also afraid to go out to places that are questionable, morally, but when I step back I think that these things are probably not sins in and of themselves and I may be too afraid of doing anything out of my routine.
If I continue this way I will be stuck. Afraid to meet other Catholics + afraid to go out with people from work = not going out at all and staying home every night.
My mother is very against me going but not for the best of reasons and I am an adult. Do not wish to upset her but I am an adult.
I have turned down offers to go before and do not want to do so again
