Who knows, maybe a little lighthearted texting is just the 5 minute break he needs. The scenario where she refused to watch a possibly 'anti' documentary and wanted to watch church-sanctioned material sounds like a red flag. I think I handle the lonliness a little better than most because I was an only child and like having my alone time. I was born and raised in the LDS faith. But my relationship with him is worth this small sacrifice. Sometimes I complain to my kids and to my husband.
For instance, I am okay with the us not seeing each other very often part. Reason being - he wants our relationship to be spontaneous like it was before the pre-med things really "kicked in". I tell her there's no pressure and we'll just see how things play out. I used to be religious when I was a kid. I was born and raised in the LDS faith. I feel very discouraged. To me, life is all about growthвso ask yourselfвwill I grow more staying single and focusing my life on the church, or will I grow more branching out, looking at life from different perspectives, and allowing myself to see options I have not yet considered. Their thinking is something like this. I met this girl a while ago and we really hit it off.
I guess I was just hoping there was way for it to work. How some find time for Affairs is beyond me!!. Real love just happens. If you're just shaken up and in need of a few stitches and work is busy, that means instead of rushing to your side immediately I might wait until my shift ends before showing up with takeout and flowers to look after you. When you mix cultural groups you increase the difficulty.
You really don't know how great you have it. Do you and your girlfriend have any kind of plan for how you're going to manage your relationship while you're both in residency. We can't tell you that. This can be done. In the meantime, she will probably view you as being less than a Mormon man who is a faithful priesthood holder. So you made a wise decision. Mormonism is fundamental to my religious beliefs and my personal sense of identity, and it is the community that I identify with most strongly. Drinkers tend to rely on drink before they can have fun. I realize my situation is less about marriage, and more about dating, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
