I made the mistake of falling in love with someone in this cult.
Long story short, earlier this year he became increasingly distant, and despite my efforts to be patient and understanding he continued to push me away. When I finally confronted him he told me that he didn’t have time for a relationship right now, that it had nothing to do with me and I had done nothing wrong. Of course I believed him, and though there were feelings on both sides it made sense to take a break. We continued to talk though, and I really believed that it was still going to be me and him in the end. And then suddenly he stopped contacting me. Two weeks later while scrolling through my Facebook I saw the announcement that he was now in a relationship with another woman. I can only assume this is someone from his church. I had no desire to investigate further, I was so hurt. He had never kept a relationship status the entire time we were together. I realize now that it wasn’t a matter of privacy but because he was ashamed of me. Apparently it was a huge scandal to start a relationship with someone that “missionary” didn’t pick out for you. I fully expect them to be married by the end of the year. I was with him long enough to figure out that that was how they did things.
My heart is broken and I can’t tell you all how much I wish I never met him.
