I live in a city where there is a house where women live to focus on discerning a religious vocation. At various events outside mass, I keep crossing paths with one of them. Had I had the types of interactions with her that I have with other women who aren’t living in a house for discernment, I would have already asked her on a date. However, I haven’t done so, because it seems like that would be a failure on my part to respect the process of discernment in which she’s supposed to be engaged.
Am I being scrupulous here, or do others agree that asking out a woman who is in a discernment process is not OK?
