I dated a guy for a year…we’ve known each other since preschool. He broke up with me freshman year of college because he was pretty sure he was going to seminary. Before that he was talking about getting engaged…and then he decided he wanted to be a priest. Obviously I wasn’t thrilled, but what could I do? I told him I’d pray for his vocation and that if he ever changed his mind and I was still single that I would want nothing more than to get back together. I loved him.
For the past couple of days hes been talking to me…calling and texting. He’s said that he misses me and that he never stopped loving me. He says that he’s gone to adoration every day and prayed that god will show him the way, but he regrets losing me. He says that he thinks we’re “meant to be together”…but he’s still not 100% sure about seminary and he doesn’t know if he’ll “ever” be sure. It doesn’t make sense to me.
He wants to get back together…but when he left with the intention of going to seminary it was really hard. I cried every night for two weeks, but all I kept telling myself that if God had chosen him to be a priest, then I had to move on and figure out my own life.
I still love him and want to be with him. He loves me and wants to be with me. But I don’t know if I can be with him until he decides about seminary and I told him that…I can’t make myself go through that again. Was I being too harsh? Like I said I love him but I don’t want to set myself up for disaser…
