    I stopped down before one of their meetings unannounced. After that I was invited to dinner a couple of times and then submitted my petition. One of the brothers signed my petition and now we’re on to the next step.

    Well this has turned into something I didn’t want it to.

    Dating is one thing, getting married having and raising children is another and, in Freemasonry you should be talking about a deep and lifelong commitment, not having a date and if it doesn't work out, just moving on to the next. Likewise with friends, you might give your trusted friend your house keys, but not an acquaintance; and you move to "friend" after a long period of association and observation. There is only two brothers in my mother lodge I would not give me house keys to, one because I've only ever spoken to him on the phone once, the other, because I silently question if he should be a brother.. the other 39 men, I would hand over my keys quickly, indeed, many of them I would hand my credit card and pin to.

    But this conversation is silly, it is a requirement you are checked out before you are initiated, some lodges have low standards in that, others high, but if you continued with this thinking in a lodge I was in, you'd have a slow journey before I considered giving you a petition.

    Just to let you know, this forum has an ignore feature. I found the conversation confusing until I saw a little button at the bottom to show ignored content. Ah right. I'd forgotten who was in my ignore list. I keep the list short but having a few users ignored improves the experience.
