Met someone in bible study


#1

Well I ran into someone in bible study who I would like to be friends with. Do you think I should call her? What do u think?


#2

Hi bones, You just met someone today and you want to call them? How do you already have their phone number? :slight_smile: I don’t see anything wrong with calling her but maybe you should ask for permission first?


#3

Well, you received her phone number I presume? You don’t get someone’s number and then NOT call them! Gosh.

It has to happen some time. Go for it. :slight_smile:


#4

Why wouldn’t you call? Are you married? Is she married?


#5

If you don’t call you’ll always wonder…


#6

After bible study, ask her if she wants to continue the study for a while, over a cup of coffee, or a dessert at a nearby restaurant.

[1] you get to spend some time “alone” to see if the interest is for real
[2] you get in some more bible study (maybe)
[3] dessert is cheaper than dinner
[4] you get to witness to the waitress if your bible etc is on the table
[5] you get to report back here… inquiring minds want to know

#7

She plans on attending next week, so I’ll ask if I can call her then.


#8

God willing… next week might be your genesis… and not your apocalylpse:D


#9

I just want to be friends with here. Not date her.


#10

Make this clear to her from the beginning. Then you might want to call her to include her in gatherings of your friends, so that it’s clearly not a date. If she has any interest in dating you, you will have to be extremely clear about your intentions.

Blessings.
