Make a move dating
Plus, women are 2.5 times as likely as men to get responses, and 30 percent of message threads initiated by straight women (but only 12 percent initiated by straight men) turn into dates.
Yet women—particularly straight women—tend to initiate fewer conversations than men.
If it’s music, see if there’s something happening in your area.
A lot of women these days use dating apps and sites on their conquest for love (or fun, whatever floats your boat).
Among heterosexual Ok Cupid users, men are 3.5 times as likely as women to send the first message.
So if you're a woman on a dating site and you tend to wait for suitors to come to you, get out there and send someone a nice greeting.
Otherwise it becomes too easy to misread a response, non-response or delayed response.
The next time God gives you an opportunity to run into your “interest” (and if it’s of God, He will), just ask if he’d like to get together…a time. You mention you have similar interests, look for a chance to share in one of those activities with him.

EDITOR'S NOTE: He Said-She Said is a biweekly advice column for singles featuring a question from a reader with responses from a male and female point of view. I find, unfortunately, that I am rarely in a situation where I am interested in someone, and on an even rarer occasion that he would be interested in me. He is godly, we have similar interests, and a great conversationalist - things I really appreciate.
If you've got a question about anything related to singleness or living the single life, please submit it to [email protected] (selected questions will be posted anonymously). Unfortunately, we don't spend a lot of time together and aren't in the same circle of friends.
We occasionally see other at church, but asides from that we do not hang out, nor do we know each other well enough to be communicating on social media / texts. Would it be appropriate if I just directly told him how I felt? HE SAID: I fully believe and agree a guy should be the leader (especially spiritually) of a family and relationship.
I have been praying about this situation and asking God to lead - to show me where he wants me to trust, and where he wants me to take a step of faith as well. Should I start texting him and inviting him to group events? However, there are times at the outset when we (speaking of guys) just don’t realize when someone may be interested us, and sometimes we need a little inspiration (or kick in the pants) to open our eyes.
