Also I think Ray is right- beautiful ladies can intimidate us guys into indecision. He just needs a little "nudge."
if you see him after Mass, walk up and shake his hand. Introduce yourself and tell him you've seen him on CM. See where it goes from there. Good luck.
Maybe i will do that on sunday...he wasn't in church yesterday.
As an older man: I will add this: I would much rather be approached by a younger woman than to approach a younger woman. There are many social issues with an older man approaching a younger woman. He may be shy but behind shy may be a true fear of rejection and the social stigma attached.
After initial hellos and exchanging of plesantries it would be much easier to walk out of church discussing things of the day and asking questions of each other around the donut table etc...If there is chemistry, things will develop, It may take some time for him to feel comfortable progressing. A good woman knows when to politely push things forward a bit by dropping a subtle hint (these are not desperate).
He may not believe initially that you might be attracted to him (he might be looking around asking himself; who me!). Guys can be as dense as a tree sometimes...yes I just wrote that! I wouldn't have written that if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes before (in others or in my own forest).
Good luck young lady!
