Well, guys, I've found myself in a strange and uncomfortable position... and I need some advice. Yes, here's your chance to get all wise and tell me what to do!!! Hahaha!!!
So, there's this really nice family that I know through church. Their children are all in their 20's, like me (OK, I'm all of 20, lol), and their youngest son, who I'll call Craig, has had a crush on me for a couple years. Sounds great at first, but the problem is... he's, errr, a bit slow mentally. He looks normal, but he had a lot of complications early in life.
Anyways, a couple years back, Craig brought flowers to church for me, but I wasn't there that day. I just heard about it later, and was honestly relieved I'd missed it. Yesterday, talking to Craig's dad casually over the phone, I happened to mention that my boyfriend and I had just broken up. Today, my dad told me over the phone that Craig had called and left a message asking me out.
My best guess is that Craig's dad told the family, and then Craig called my parent's house without HIS parent's knowledge. Craig's parents at least know I'm still at college, but Craig didn't call my cell phone.
So, the inevitable finally happens... I've got to turn him down nicely, but how? I've turned guys down before, but not... erm... slightly challenged ones. Also, the only way I have to contact the family is through his parent's cell phones, which means having to tell them what happened. Last but not least... his family's been incredibly kind and offered to take me on a cruise next month with them, so that means seeing Craig... a lot!!!
What should I doooo.....
I really like these people, and don't want to get this situation much more messy than it is.... I already haven't seen them in months.
