Jehovah witness disfellowshipped dating
Even though he doesn’t dance, I decided that was not a deal breaker. One is that the JW view of dating and sex can lead to warped and twisted thinking – that in turn leads to low self-esteem that can lead to harmful situations.Another lesson is that when a good and trusted friend tells you the truth about yourself, it’s probably a good time to listen and take stock.I also heard from the platform and from people at the Hall how it was not good for a man to be alone; that he needed a wife to satisfy his sexual needs.Men who remained single too long may not function properly and women needed to be available for marriage to the single brothers; that it was “selfish for a woman to stay alone when there were brothers available.” The only exceptions were for women who “pioneered” full-time.Wearing a bright red sweater and broad smile, she stands out next to her parents, four younger sisters, and two younger brothers.The second photo is more recent -- and Angie's not in it. Her parents and siblings remain Jehovah's Witnesses.
I became particular – maybe even rather “picky” – about who I wanted to date.Theirs was a “I love it because it’s mine” love – and not connected to any real emotion or feeling. I had a severe drinking problem by this time, and needed to sober up. I will never forget one conversation I had over coffee with a group of people while we were talking about my view of relationships. ” Since I believed that it wasn’t in a man’s nature to love, I honestly thought I was doing the man a favor by leaving. She said, “If you can’t think of twenty-five things you like about yourself, you really have nothing to offer anyone.” Ouch!One of the guys in the group looked at me in horror, and said, “Maaan, you are cold and heartless, men have feelings too.” “Whaaa? ” He went on to say that men had feelings and I was just breaking hearts, and how cruel I was. It took over six months for me to come up with a list of twenty-five things – not an easy assignment.Dating no longer equaled sex the way it had before. I realized that being alone and being lonely weren’t the same thing.I knew more about myself, I knew what I wanted, and I was no longer willing to settle for just anyone that came along. I met the man I am still with today during this blissful time in my life and while still on my honeymoon with myself, so there was no rush.
