What is the utility of coed Catholic young adult groups, beyond mere socializing? Is it possible these days for men to strengthen attraction in subtle ways? And what's the time frame for him to follow through, such that he is friendzoned after a certain point? It seems to me that most Catholic men who try to be "nice" and "friendly" probably get friendzoned immediately by the women there. Even mere socializing might get them there, since it is not exciting or bold. But would flirting and anything stronger lead to someone no longer being welcome to the group, because he is being too socially "disruptive"?
American Catholics really need to rethink the ways they are trying to get young people to meet.
