Catholic Match asks everyone's age and so does every other dating site. Are they impolite?
It also asks people their views on contraception and fornication. Its a dating site. Its going to ask questions that are considered no-gos in normal conversation in the real world.
If you don't beleive, go up to a random number of women of various ages in the Mall, heck even Church, and ask such questions, let's see the results you get.
This thread is about asking a stranger their age b/c I want to know if she is too young. Thank you.
Yeah,, lots of good advice here. I agree asking a Woman her age is probably not the best route, I would rather make a flirtatious comment and a follow-up comment asking her to get the typical "cup of Coffee" or something like that.
If you want to ask out women you meet out in the world, you have to take your chances.
I would just say, would you like to get some coffee, and see what she says. If she is willing to go, she doesn't think you are too old.
If she is working she is over 16. It's not a crime to have coffee with someone who is young.
Perfect advice. Ask her out. Why all the assumptions that she is not Catholic? She may be a very young-looking 33, a wayward Catholic, a perfect Catholic...who knows? Apparently, she digs you. Go for it! 'You're a charming lady. How's your schedule this week? Would you be interested in meeting for coffee?'
So, went out shopping last night and was checking out and I found the cashier to be rather cute, friendly and engaging. I wanted to make a move but was uncertain of her age. She looked to be in her mid-twenties, which is too young for me. I wanted to ask in case she was older than I thought, but I didn't and just left. So, my question is, do I ask her age or do I figure she's probably too young and that my instincts are serving me well? It seems like it comes off as creepy and that makes me think it might be.
Disclaimer: This thread isn't about how young is too young. I know there are some who wouldn't have an issue with a 40yo man dating a woman in her mid-twenties and would try to convince me that I need to expand my age range. It's too young for me and I'll leave it at that. This thread is about asking a stranger their age b/c I want to know if she is too young. Thank you.
Dan, start out casually and go to the store more often and see if you can catch her. I have two young men who are twins in my Supermarket (they are young enough to be my sons, so I am not interested in them) Every time I see them I smile and say something. They are extremely personable. Keep going back and like someone stated, ask her for a cup of coffee and then see where it goes from there. She may be older than what you think. If she is interested in you, she will take you up on the coffee and then see if it goes onto something sweet. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Just go for it brother. Little voices inside our heads that ask questions like "is she too young" just psyche us out and they're really just the fear that is inside us making excuses for not putting ourselves out there. If she says no, then at least you'll know. If she does says yes, the two of you go out, have a nice time, and it turns out that she's not Catholic, convert her. Lol.
