We work for the same small company, so I’ve ‘known’ her for close to a year now, but didn’t really know much about her till the first date. I know it went well because she couldn’t stop laughing and we have a ton of things in common, and she wants to go on a second date. I was hesitant to bring up the fact that I am Catholic or even believed in God, but I do spend a lot of my time at the Newman center (I’m 22 and so is she.) Luckily she was very receptive of hearing about what I did mention (I was still a little vague on purpose to not scare her away). She was never raised with any sort of faith but it’s something she’s wanted to get into for a while but didn’t really know where to start or maybe a little anxiety with getting into something brand new with no guidance.
As a side note, God has spoken to me in an inaudible sort of way that I am called to be a leader of some sort, and also that I am to lead her. She has a very quite and reserved personality, like someone who could use a boost in confidence and a bit of guidance.
So it wasn’t my plan to invite her to Mass right away, but more of a low key weekly community supper for students kind of deal at Newman. Do you think that would be appropriate for a second date, or is that too soon?
