I joined because to be blunt I was striking out on the secular sites. I was finding much older men, guys who were divorced with kids (or worse men who never married the mom), non Catholics (or for that matter non Christians), guys wanting sex, etc. When I would mention my religious views I was often attacked on these sites. I put up a free profile here and got a few responses from guys who lived by me fitting what I wanted: never married, childless, around my age, etc. Sadly though most have faded. One got married I have since found out (but not from here).
I subscribed when I got a few messages from men who seemed like good potential mates. However after I did this I realized I was running into a lot of the same things I ran into on the secular sites. Oh sure I don't run into a lot of men just looking for sex (at least not that they admit to me)but I run into a lot of much older men, guys with kids, and guys who are LDR but sound like great guys if I did LDR. Meanwhile I have had guys my age often bypass me because of my age, when they are just to blame for being single as I am, only they seem to think it's my fault. Many of the men are way too extremist for me and I could never handle marrying a man who believes that I am not equal to him.
My membership expires next month and to be honest I highly doubt I will renew. Outside of a few great guys that could be potentials there's way too many that aren't. Oddly, I think the women here for the most part are much better than most of the men and I can't figure out why men are bypassing them outside of their age (which to me tells me the men doing this are superficial and no quality). Instead I will concentrate on finding a man near me through people I know and singles groups.
Dawn, I'm sorry to hear you don't want to renew. I enjoy your posts in the forum.
