Nothing on earth is perfect, of course, but the blessings (the generous, kind souls) are abundant. I intend to spread the word to a few friends who are also Catholic singles....I, like them, just did not realize what this site really is and, I have to say, the Forums are extra special for it is here the connecting truly happens. I am excited to continue to build friendships here and put the rest in God's hands.

Evidently many women do not take a man's perspective into account when considering that.

Aren't we ALL responsible for ourselves?.. I know for sure that no one is looking out for me if I don't look out for myself.. I have only me to depend on as a single woman these last 21 years..

I suppose if I were to ever attend a NOW conference, I would sabotage the sound system and play "Wives and Lovers." Here it is (ladies, don't get mad...I'm messing around, as usual)

(Burt Bacharach & Hal David)
Hey! Little Girl
Comb your hair, fix your makeup
Soon he will open the door
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger
You needn't try anymore

For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
I'm warning you...

Day after day
There are girls at the office
And men will always be men
Don't send him off with your hair still in curlers
You may not see him again

For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
He's almost here...

Hey! Little girl
Better wear something pretty
Something you'd wear to go to the city and
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music
Time to get ready for love
Time to get ready
Time to get ready for love

I was also going to include lyrics from My Fair Lady, "A Hymn to Him," but didn't want to push my luck with the humor.

Patience is a virtue. Those who wait will be victorious in the end for they have expended the least amount of energy.

If your RIP (relationship in progress) doesn't work, who cares about age difference? it appears you and Leon have a connection. If you two ever meet in-person, and can maintain laser-beam eye contact during an intellectual communication...you better go for it.

Maybe like the guy reading the newspaper in "It's a Wonderful Life" recommends to Jimmy Stewart ... why don't you kiss her.

I did nto completely understand what the risk for a man are if he dates a woman in his parish. What risks are you specifically mentioning that are unique to the man?

For Ray, Marian, Leon and those that have reminded us that there are still gentle men and gentle women in these fora, thank you! I'm often surprised that on a dating site there are those that do not even appear to like the opposite sex. I like harmony, I seek peace, I crave togetherness and just want everyone to act and talk kindly to each other.

It is everyone's perogative to disagree, but one doesn't have to be a bully when stating opposition.

I tend to not play games. If I like someone, I'll compliment them. Sometimes it is flirting, sometimes it is just to let them know they are valued. I asked one person for a f2f and it felt oddly out of place. I was shut down, albeit in a kind way. It didn't mean an end to our conversations, I just felt like I was put in my place and will wait for him to act. The more I have learned that this is God's plan for men, the more it makes sense.

I never have much thought of a man leading because I always figured it is what they do. I am happy to follow their lead. As a single parent, I am called to step up and be a strong leader. It's not something I am comfortable with, but it is necessary. I've read "War on Men" where the inference is that women, by redefining our roles in society, are leaving men in the lurch. Here we are begging for men do what has been traditionally part of their personna and we're being attacked.

If a man has experienced being asked out by a woman, how did it go? How did it feel? That would be helpful information to me.

Because we are only a picture on a screen, we are easy to be ignored, cut off, overlooked or at times entertained. Unless someone takes the initiative to put a voice and a face to that picture, it appears real manners don't necessarily apply.

I like these forums. I like the opinions and the interactions. I like the people I "meet" on here. I think we just need to remember why we joined in the first place.

Great post Kathy. It is true we are only a picture here and that is often not enough for anyone to get a sense of who we are. Which makes any bickering and complaining even more pathetic. We need to remain upstanding, upbeat and positive as we navigate the waters of the site. it does not help to be a bully or to spin out provocative and mean statements.
