So here’s my situation. There’s this girl I really like, but she isn’t Christian nor does she share my views on chastity and we haven’t really talked about that. We like to watch stranger things together and we usually watch in a somewhat public area (we live in a college dorm) but one night my roommates not around and so I ask if she wants to watch in my room. I realize this is a bad idea because I might be tempted to do things I shouldn’t. Fortunately my friend wants to watch as well and so he comes to watch with us. This helps the situation but he says he doesn’t plan on staying the whole time and after a little bit he says hes leaving. I know that him leaving will put me in a tempting situation but part of me does want to be alone with the girl and so I essentially just say bye without trying to convince him to stay. Immediately after, as he’s on his way out, I open my mouth and convince him to stay.
I’m proud that I ultimately decided to try to take myself out of that tempting situation, but for a few seconds, when I chose to let him go, I wonder if I was putting myself in a tempting situation on purpose. Did I sin? Was that a mortal sin? What do you think?
