Thanks Bob,

That is a possibility, but as of right now I am not expecting/ counting on it. If we were were to get back together it will only be because she made the commitment to study and understand the Catholic Faith. I will see her on a regular basis in our circle of friends, and I think that it's best for her if I teach her about my faith as a friend. Right now there is too big a gap faith-wise to move forward with any romantic aspect.

You're welcome Matt. Establishing a proper relationship requires agreeing spiritually before anythng else progresses.

Matt, i dont know you but can relate to what your going through (i suppose a lot of us can). I met someone i thought was my "match" not here i might add. Anyway to cut a long story short the relationship was amazing and the best i've ever known. However there were certain things I was not willing to sacrifice and she called it quits.

To be honest it will hurt a lot initially but the only way I found a way through was through prayer. I know its a cliche but its the truth. Dont give up hope just move forward.

It's a painful lesson to learn but maybe you were selling your soul short? that's what you have to keep thinking

good luck

Hi Matt,
If you think you will be discussing it again I encourage you to find the Pope Paul VI Institute or American Academy of Fertility Care Professionals website and study or perhaps print and study the info there about effectiveness.
There is a lot of misinformation about NFP out there but there are also a lot of fly by night providers teaching seat of the pants methods which are not effective. This can be tragic when a couple has a serious reason ( she has cancer, etc) for avoiding pregnancy and leads to a great deal of hostility from health care personnel. Perhaps your girlfriend ran across some legitimate criticism of a less effective approach and is understandably distrustful.
I congratulate you both on your chastity and on being so dedicated to a relationship with integrity.

Sometimes a couple drifts apart. Accepting that is the hardest part. Good luck to you and remember that things happen for a reason. Theresa

Hi Matt,

Been praying for you, well all of us here on CM, and was hoping you had some peace around this. I wondered if you perhaps had a chance to speak to your friend? Perhaps things worked themselves out. She sounds lovely.

In Christ,
Leyden

I completely understand, Matt. Break-ups hurt! Keeping it chaste will enable you to heal easier. God bless you. Praying Praying
