I dated a Scientologist

Post by adam5040 » Sun Mar 13, 2016 2:20 am

I dated a Scientologist
1. We met at a coffee shop.
2. Conversation went well.
3. Until she said that she wanted to tell me something but she couldn't.
4. This was the first I had met her.
5. Who doesn't like a mystery? (Ok.. I'll take the bait)
6. Coffee went well and exchanged numbers.
7. Over the next few days I wanted more of her.
8. We met again and I picked her up, at her home.
9. Same place, same coffee, again she said in conversation, "I can't tell you."
10. 1 week later we're making love.
11. She opens up and explains to me that she's a scientologist.
12. Having no intellect about scientology, I ask questions.
13. She explains that it is something I need to find out on my own.
14. I go to the a place where they learn about scientology.(Irvine, CA)
15. I complete a survey and give them a copy my drivers license.
16. Finish survey and sing a piece a paper acknowledging that scientology is a religion.
17. Not knowing what I signed, I now know that I was signing a piece of paper saying that this organization is a religion, WHICH IS NOT!
18. Scientology is NOT a religion!
19. So, I was brought to a movie style theater.
20. I watched the movie/presentation/film.
21. I was then brought to a room.
22. In this room there was a woman who showed me a chart with lines.
23. She then explained and asked questions about my family.
24. This is where I was in question, too her.
25. I questioned back.
26. She did not like this and said, "It's all here, on paper, this is you."
27. I lightly chuckled with a smirk.
28. She then continued to point and talk about how fix me while pointing at my chart.
29. I listened.
30. After her explanation she said she could help me.
31. So I hooked, just wanting to know what was she going to say next.
32. She then said that she could "help me" with my statistics with my life.
33. I was at this time laughing in my mind.
34. She then presented me with free books and classes she could provide me.
35. Check this out, it can be all free.
36. I say no thanks and walk out of her office.
37. She shows me out of her office and the lady I'm courting comes and asks me how it went.
38. I did not say a word, and just moved my head.
39. I was then directed to the front office, to be by myself alone for about 5 minutes.
40. My lady then comes up to me and asks how it went, with some free books.
41. I said it went well.
42. A few weeks later, I decided to do my own research, online.
43. This is where I found Xenu.net. I think .com at that time.
44. I spent hours on hours researching and questioning.
45. My lady did not like this.
46. My lady insisted and demanded, if i want to learn about scientology, don't go online and to only speak with her directly or she can have someone talk to me about becoming a member.
47. This is where I really started my research.
48. A few weeks later I told her that I was researching scientology.
49. She got very upset and told me that if I really wanted to know about it, that I need to stop, and only ask questions with people already in the organization.
50. Wow!
51. I then told her that I want to be with her, but scientology doesn't work for me.
52. She then got very angry and said, "Scientology works for everyone!"
53. I calmly said that it doesn't work for me but I am happy it works for you.
54. No communication for two days after I called many times.
55. Finally, I get a call from this dude at her organization.
56. This guy... says that if I want to speak to her I need to go through him. WHAT!
57. I played along.... This guy tells me about my testing, at the org, and stills tries to get me to pay all this money to help myself.
58. Long story short, I ended it.

There seems to be more young active Scientologist women than men, so they have to go fishing for partners in the outside world. Good thing she told you early and you did your research, instead of you entangled with a marriage or even children.

Welcome to the board, Adam. Good thing you GOOGLED SCIENTOLOGY and landed here. Was this a while ago?

Xenu.net still has some of the best information on the internet about Scientology, all in one place so you don't have to search around too much. It's still one of the top websites returned when you google scientology, which is saying a lot after 20 years.

Just as a little comedy relief - did the relationship end something like this clip from Seinfeld? Video Link

"Scientology works for everybody"

My immediate thought was "Did it work for Lisa McPherson?"

I would have taken it as a HUGE red flag when someone basically says "Don't google this or look it up on the internet, only learn about them directly from them.". . .and you'd think that being made to sign paperwork before so much as being shown a recruiting film would be a huge red flag too.

They won't let their contracts and agreements be taken to a lawyer before signing them, and once they're signed they disappear and the person who signed does not get a copy. Add two more red flags.
