Probably, not Mount Meadows level, but be prepared to have to apologize on her behalf a lot. This is not about either of you individually. I could imagine all these nurses throw theirselves at him regardless he being in a relationship with me. In any case; I can assure you from your post that he doesn't sound like he's being selfish; the behavior does sound like its residency related and not selfishness related. The first few months were wonderful we saw each other every few weeks, we live about miles from each other. If you are dating a Mormon man or woman, be genuinely interested in their religion.
