From there, you obviously need a response from the woman to know whether or not things will go any further.If you know the woman from church, if you’ve seen her interact in a group, observed her with others, maybe worked with her as a part of some ministry, that input should be enough for you to think through the decision of whether initiation of a relationship is the right thing.This is not the only way the early part of a relationship might look.These are simply suggested applications of biblical principles.Ladies, as uncomfortable as this may sound for the guys, you might be in a difficult position here as well, depending on how well you know the man initiating with you. Then I’d ask, have you had any chance at all to see him in group settings, or do you know him by reputation?If you don’t have even information at that level, feel free to tell him that you want some time to think and pray about it (that is, if you’re not sure at that point that you’re not interested).If you feel that you are not initially attracted to a man who initiates with you, OK — but at least ask yourself why that is.Are you considering biblical characteristics in that decision?

The idea is to remove that period of confusion or vulnerability for the woman by being forthright about what level of intention or commitment exists (a la 1 Thessalonians 4).In the end, there is no formula and no rote substitute for intellectually honest Christians seeking to care well for one another and to faithfully apply Scripture to infinitely varied relational circumstances.So with all that said, let’s consider how the principle of caring for one another well in the early stages of a relationship might look.Then — in addition to actually thinking and praying about it — ask one of your pastors or elders whether he knows him and what he thinks.If the pastor or elder you ask doesn’t know him well, he can guide you to a trustworthy source that knows him better.
