The only advice I have is the warning that if stuff goes south it will be hard to work around him.  Also, since he is in at the firm and you are not yet this could potentially become a lop-sided relationship.  I'm not going to persuade or dissuade you, just pointing out two obvious drawbacks.

So there is this one girl at my Church, cute little blonde about my age. We don't talk very much, however, we have slightly been socializing a bit more, but not that much. Anyway, this saturday night for Pascha I kind of want to step it up a knotch with her. Wondering if anyone had any advice here since I'm a little sixteen year old and all of you wise old people have years of experience. What should I do? Stand by her, offer her my coat, put my arm around her, get a hotel, be a gentlemen, be an ass?
Be a gentleman. But don't act like she's the only person in the room. You should wait until after the Fast to start dating someone.  ;)

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.  Don't do it!  You are too young to end your life.

Why wait?  Is this another made up "tradition" that can be found nowhere in Scripture and practiced by nearly no one?

On possible route is to ask him out to lunch to discuss political strategery or something, and see what happens from there...

Why yes. I just made it up. Since I clearly stated in my post this was a tradition practiced by the church you shouldn't even have to ask. I just figured my statement would be as obvious as your ending the young man's life with dating/marriage comment is also "traditional". It dare wouldn't be my own advice or opinion.

You stated such, but I do not believe you.

Science has proven that the best place to go for advice on dating/relationships is a thread about this on a gaming forum. You can't refute science.

Yes, nobody can give better advice than a bunch of 30 year old virgins living in their mom's basement.

Well, maybe some day when they leave their geeky existence behind they'll do things that normal people do... like post on theology boards.  :-*
