A few months ago, I fell in love with a wonderful, beautiful woman. We aren't anything official yet we started out as just friends for a couple years, so I internet dating Santa Ana distance relationships want to rush anythingbut I really love her. I think she could be the one, which fills me with amazing joy, but there is still one problem. I'm working on going on a mission, which gives me extremely mixed als. For one thing, my friend mentioned to me on a very sad day that the reason she wasn't really trying to be in a relationship with me was my lack of RM status.
All heart-breaking aside there were lots of factors in that day, with some unfun months, but now I think she's starting to like me againI could understand her not wanting to hold me back and not wanting to feel bound to someone who's not even around. Still, I love her very much, so I asked some people for advice.

Asking some RM friends, they said to go for it in the hopes of having someone to write to. I've also had an RM friend tell me that it's nothing but trouble, that she'll leave me and I'll end up as a husk of a person unable to successfully carry out my is dating someone the same Pasadena TX being in a relationship, and coming home to shattered dreams.
Asking myself about it, I can feel the need to not be too attached, and I made a vow with myself that, if she finds someone who will truly make her happy for all eternity, I'll be mature about it and be more than happy for her after all, I just want to see her happy. At the same time, there's the side of my brain that says "What if she beats the odds?
What if she waits? What if I can come home, sweep her off her feet and be the happiest man in the world? Trying to infer what my friend thinks about it is hard.

He didn't serve a mission, does that mean i shouldn't marry him?
I tell myself that. So, what I'm trying to say it help. I have no idea what I'm doing, and I have no idea if preparing for a mission can happen alongside being in love. When I pray about it, sometimes I feel like what I'm doing is right, sometimes it feels like a "it's not hurting any" and sometimes I feel empty inside, so I don't know what it all means.
If you have decided to serve a mission, then I would recommend not getting too attached in any form of serious relationship before you go, and for different reasons than you might otherwise hear on this site.
