"What if you meet your husband while your elder is away?"
"What if he doesn't wait for you when you get home?"
"You're just going to distract him."
"You know the chances of this working out is like 3%"
"You shouldn't be close minded like that."
"Girlfriends are just trouble before missions."
"What if you come home and you don't want to get married?"
And my personal favorite:
"Its more likely that a missionary will turn gay than have his girlfriend wait for him."
But guess what guys:
I STILL LOVE YOU!
Even though you've made me doubt myself and cry myself to sleep, I don't feel any bitterness towards you. However, I do have some advice that might be helpful for you:
Mind your own business.
God's plan is different for every one and who are you to tell someone their plan. We are all just trying to align our will with God's. Our path to God is unique and only we know how to get there. So please don't judge someone else on who they choose to love and how they choose to live their life. And next time you feel like being negative: just don't. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." You might just save a young girl who is just in love some tears.
