Yes, very useful. It's good to have more background about the person before meeting. I like how these are tools are to help us. It can be a bit overwhelming to go out and try to find the right person.
just wondering.... I subscribed to this website a few months ago. I know how important it is to share the same faith and beliefs. I have had only 2 'matches' on this site. Am I doing something wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Good read. Helps me feel more comfortable with the site and utilize it more often. Thanks!

Hi Peg - I've been on since January 1 and kind of felt the same way for a while. The first thing I realized was that my search was too picky! It took some real thought on my part to change it up a bit: how far am I willing to travel to just meet someone? am I really only looking for people within 2-3 years of my age? am I okay with him having kids too?
I also realized that doing several different kinds of searches and giving them specific titles helps. Posting frequently on forums helps get views to your profile as well. As far as actual "matches" - I'm a little slim myself on those. And then I read their profile and think, "Why in the heck did CM match me with him?!?!" Remember it's a computer. I'm now using the site to just have lots of conversations with lots of different people, and letting God figure out the match part in His perfect timing. Less stress for me.
God bless your search!
