I am curious. Has anyone actually met anyone, face-to-face, on this site?? I renewed my membership this fall, hoping for better results than I experienced last time. Unfortunately, the experience is the same: men who don't respond to messages, men who will only send emoticons without messages, and conversations that go nowhere and typically end without their reply. I have not met any person who has even suggested a meeting. Are there men out there who are interested in making an actual connection with a woman, and are they experiencing similar responses? I am beginning to think this is a site for those who do not really want to meet someone face-to-face. I would love to hear from those who have had success meeting people face-to-face.

My friend met her husband here on CM. He pursued her, taking the lead with everything along the way. They lived within the same state, relatively close to each other. Rather than draw things out through emotigrams and emails, he immediately asked for her number so that he could properly ask her out on a date. Each person has to work at their own pace. Best wishes to you in your journey!

Sure! I've met probably close to 100 current and former member of this site over the nearly 3 years that I have been here. More importantly, I've enjoyed being in the company of every last one, and some I will call friends for a very long time. biggrin

Hi Kristin, It sounds like your friend's husband did everything right. How refreshing it will be to meet someone pro-active like that. I'm still praying & believing! Thanks & best wishes to you, too.

Wow, Victor! What are you doing? Grant it, in three years, the numbers will add up, but I do not plan to be on this site that long. I want results now. laughing I am glad you have had some success meeting people and making long term connections. I hope to say the same one day....well..., before my membership runs out again. biggrin All the best to you.

I personally think you should meet in person ASAP I wish girls I met moved at that Pace Kristin most unfortunately want to wait at least 1-3 months before meeting :( No matter How far or close they live lol.

I don't see 1-3 months as being a bad thing, especially if you and the other person are from different states. I was once talking to a guy (not from CM) and in the four years that I was getting to know him, he never mad a legitimate effort to come out to my state or invite me to his. It was a waste of my time and I felt hurt when I finally had to let it go. I learned to hope for a healthy progression...emails to phone calls, Skype to real-life visits. :-)

Ohhhh, how I wish that worked! CM to me has been an exercise in patience. And... learning. I've blown it a couple times. I'm still working on it.

YES. Many have. Keep at it and DO NOT GIVE UP. I know many sets of couples who have gotten married here.

I've come to the conclusion, Chinwe, that when a guy is really interested, he will make the move to try to get to know you through more than just messages pretty quickly. One guy asked to talk on the phone after only days of sending messages, and we met within two weeks of messaging! Other guys have sent back messages over a period of many months, don't send a response for weeks, then come back again.

So, you're not alone, hon. But when a guy has serious intentions to get to know you on a deeper level, he'll do it, and you'll know. hug
