I am a sister in a Young Single Adult ward and I am trying to cope with having a crush on one of our full-time missionaries. I work closely with the missionaries and the ward mission leader so I'm around them a lot, and BAM, it's hitting me. There is no way I would ever tell him or anyone in the ward while he's serving, or even hint at it -- totally out of line. But it's a constant struggle for me to keep from being overly friendly or betraying myself. What bothers me even more is that he's going home (several states away) in a few weeks, and it breaks my heart to think of never seeing him again. So I friended him on Facebook (his full name is right on the front of his notebook, ok!) with a little message saying hi, knowing he wouldn't see it until after his mission. Now I'm worried that that was the wrong thing to do, although I can't very well take it back. So I don't know what my actual question is.... I don't know how to even TRY to see if something could progress after his mission. No clue how to broach that topic. Advice needed. Thanks guys.
Thanks for the input, guys. Yep, he's younger. I haven't been single very long...I ended a long relationship with a nonmember guy a little while back. But at 27 I feel positively ancient in my ward, which is very small and very young. There are a few guys my age who are my friends but I don't see anything more. It seems really, really hard and improbable to find an LDS guy who I like, who likes me, who is single and in his late 20's. It feels like a horrible lottery. So then this guy rolls around -- worthy priesthood holder, genuine, personable, someone I feel spiritually in tune with and get along with....and it's the most awkward and unlikely set of circumstances ever. Seems so not fair. And makes me feel like such a doomed weirdo. Anyways. I won't make this a full-length confessional. Thanks
