Hey, I'm a 20 year old guy, studying in 3rd year of architectural engineering school, there is this girl who is in the same year, she's younger than me by some months, well when I first saw her I fell for her, I mean she's ultra beautiful, she looks younger than her age by two or three years, I really liked her looks, I hadn't had any conversation with her at the first year except for a quick hi, but in second year she specialized in my same specialization, then we've been exchanging a lot of talking, but the thing is:
1) Those conversations were about the same thing, how's school, how's church and that's it, those conversations lasted for about 30-40 minutes with nothing in them but chatter, I mean I really like her looks, her sense of humor, I mean she laughs about every funny thing I say and I know that's a sign of attraction but I say, she's laughing and smiling all the day, maybe she laughs at my jokes because her sense of humor accepts what I say, that's it, also about the chatter thing, I used to chat with another girl on facebook for hours without me feeling bored or anything, with this girl we have lots of weird moments of silence, that doesn't mean I don't have fun while being with her, but I feel our conversations are not interesting enough to me
2) She's in my same school in the same year, getting married to a girl the same age is hard somehow here, you have to prepare an apartment and some starting money to start a house that means she'll have to wait for about 2-3 more years after our graduation plus I don't feel comfortable with the idea of getting married to somebody who works in my same field (I don't know why, give me your opinions about this)
3) About the religious part, well we're both Christians, the difference is I was born a christian became an atheist and then studied to find the truth, and my research led me back to the church (Orthodox) I also attended for some months in a protestant evangelical church (her family's church), that's the clash she's a protestant and when I raised the idea of her visiting my church to attend the mass someday she changed the subject and that showed that she doesn't have the tendency to trying things at the orthodox church, I didn't ask her why directly though
How to know if she really likes me without asking her directly, what to do about not being interested in our conversations together (Although I try very hard to make those conversations interesting but it just seems that we walk in closed circles, how's school, yea it's hard, this subject is good, that one is bad, how is life, how is church, weird moment of silence, so what did you do yesterday in that lecture, and how's life outside of school going) what to do about her being a protestant and I'm an orthodox, and also studying to be a deacon, your opinions whatever they are are highly appreciated, by the way what do you think (if anybody here heard the video) of what Fr. Dawood Lamey said about Ehsbha sah (A protestant carnival held yearly that many orthodox people go to, I went the year), thanks a lot, god bless you all.
