    There's this girl I know(more by seeing her here and there at church) and I found out she is going on our summer mission trip. That presents the opportunity, but there are some other things. We are both about the same age, but go to different colleges(same state, but about 4 1/2-5 hrs apart). Another thing is that her dad is also going on the trip. I know her dad, he's pretty awesome as I've known him from another trip last summer.

    I don't want to fret too much early on, but the trip is about a week long and there will be meetings before the trip to organize stuff and what not. I also think that with college gettogethers with church friends and what not might bring her out, but yea, here's what I have as a plan.

    Get to know her during meetings as in talk, but around other people and what not, know her some more on the trip(also make myself stand out some just taking initiative and working hard) then maybe before we part when we get back ask her out

    What do you all think?

    STOP!

    do NOT overdo the 'stand out' plan, it could come off really bad.
    Don't assume that because her Dad appears awesome that you must do likewise.

    Don't do the asking out in private, do it out front, after you've got to know her.

    Good luck

    There seems to be a lot of these "having girl issues" posts going around.

    Spring is definitely in the air.:D

    Don't overdo it and just do it. If there's a spark and she's interested in pursuing it, she'll know it pretty quickly. I mean, you already know you like her, right?

    Men always overcomplicate things. If you know enough about someone to know you like them, chances are pretty good they know enough about you to know the same.

    I've gotten a yes from girls I've known for less than five minutes. And not because I've got some kind of superhuman "player" skill, but because I figured that if I felt a spark, they did too.

    Get to know her first.

    Never under estimate the power of your imagination.

    but if you dont normally talk to her much, dont start talking to her a lot all of a sudden, work up to it, you might freak her out
