Hmmm, no response from my last email.

That doesn't bode well.

relax man, it will be what it will be. Freaking out over something that has not happened yet is counter-productive. If he reacts poorly to it then you can figure out what to do until then withhold panic.

he's probably been busy just repeating to himself 'holy fucking shit' Smile

I know, I know. Thanks.

Not trying to stress over it, but I really don't want a big drama filled event. I simply want to retain his friendship and move on with my life.

Heh, yeah... I think this might be a unique experience for him... as I doubt he's had to respond to something like that.

Give it some time KC, this is probably a lot to take in for your friend. This could have closed his mind even more or it may have opened it up just a bit. My guess would be the former, but I suppose there's hope it's the latter.

Maybe the lunch was supposed to be an intervention - but most likely, since you gave him permission to talk to xxx about it, there is conversation going on there. Patience. Smile

Ah, no worries. I'm sure part of him wants to support you while, another part of him wants to do exactly what you asked him not to and form a rescue party to rally, quote scripture, and pray at you until your mind has been sufficiently bludgeoned and stuffed back into the box.

He's just weighing his options. Even then, no worries - the longer he weighs it all out ... the more it will weigh on his own mind ... and then, questions can begin.

Just a thought, since you mentioned the forum we just might get a few of your curious congregation fellows showing up. One never knows. Shy

Does that me we should behave, just in case? Tongue

He really is a great guy. I literally couldn't even make up something negative about him. If anyone can be open minded in this, it would be him. I just hope he responds that way.

More than likely it was. That's why I wanted to make my caveat clear. Sure you can have lunch with me... as a friend... not as a rescue mission.

And he is more than likely talking with the pastor, and that's fine. I've known this pastor almost my entire life.

Yeah, like I said, I don't think anyone really has an answer for an email like this : /

Some may come... but I really hope they don't. I don't think they would do well here. Almost positive they would get shredded.

Haha, no.

After all, if everyone behaved with me, I wouldn't be where I am.
