I am at the top end of being eligible to participate in Young Adults groups, but have decided I absolutely must begin to attend such a group at a local church.
A young lady I loosely "dated" shortly after arrival to Tampa after career loss and a move here from across the state attends. Things did not work out, and she is not talking. I was not ready to move forward with a relationship so soon after a major change in life's circumstances. So I worry about rumors being spread about me before I'm even able to integrate in the group.
Would appreciate thoughts on how to proceed. It strikes me as odd that someone would be so hurt, when I'd indicated all along I was seeking only friendship due to my newness to the area, that they won't communicate. She has since found someone else (at the young adults group!), and I'm happy for her.
Appreciate any thoughts. Blessings,
