Our fearless leader Brian wrote an article awhile ago that just popped up on the blog, which I read for the first time today. I wondered what you all thought about his six reasons as to why you are not getting a response. To read the whole article: www.catholicmatch.com


Otherwise the bottom line of the six are:

1. No established etiquette for online communication

2. Online daters are hasty and use the shotgun approach (meaning they contact people they might not in "real life" - not like a shotgun wedding! eyepopping)

3. We are more critical online - gotta look hot or daters say "NOT"

4. People are unrealistic in regard to who they initiate contact with

5. Sometimes the chemistry is off

6. Not all members are paid subscribers - so they can't respond!


Do you think Brian is spot on? Or are other factors in play?

I think that, after 13 years of running this site as a previoulsy single man seeking a wife, as well as learning from the experiences shared on his site over all these years from a bird's eye point of view, I'm more inclined to give his point of view far more credibility than the opinion of a journalist, or talking head on TV.


Anyone on this site who believes that they cannot learn something from Brian either isn't paying attention, or isn't interested in learning.


Just my two cents

I'd also be interested in knowing if Brian (are you out there?) changed his own search and contact methods on CM and because of that is now happily married?

Doesn't bother me - I'm pretty feisty myself. Lion It adds spice to life - but only if accompanied by a good sense of humor! tongue

We could add the faulty keyboard as number 7 - and maybe bad internet connections, bad hair days, favorite TV shows on - as possibles after! wink

I agree with them all...and there are surely more. The issue is which reason is the reason in a particular situation as to why you are not getting the response.
