What do you mean? How am I being having any benefits over a woman in this regard?

I have never googled anyone, I find that scary

No. I don't search potential dates in depth, and certainly not friends, inside or outside of CM. I might search a date from CM's address or career, just to confirm what I have been told or what is written in a profile, is not totally fabricated. I believe in taking people at face-value, but certainly some caution is warranted. The exception was when I noted some "different" behavior from someone dated at length, I searched for any criminal activity or arrests.

Another annoying habit that some do, is to find your friends and family on facebook, etc., and engage in dialogue with them. It does feel very freaky! I find this behavior to be disrespectful of a person's privacy, so I certainly would not do it to someone else, unless something is seriously questionned.

Unfortunately, I was a tax auditor for most of my career years, and so questionning others, and expecting a valid answer, is a behavior that I am used to doing. I realize that doing that in romantic life is probably not so good. I apologize to anyone who did experience this from me.

People can improve, and we have to give people the benefit of the doubt, even if they have some negative items "out there." If the items are chronic, and not isolated to a particular timeframe, then the issue may be questionnable, as to whether the behavior would continue into a marriage, or whether the individual is willing to change a negative behavior.

I still submit that I think that when a woman and a man meet here, that they exchange parish information, especially before meeting in person, and particularly if they don't live in the same town. I believe that individuals behave better with accountability at hand.

I am not saying that regular mass goers are perfect, but probably better than average, in general, and are more likely practicing Catholics. A Catholic's church attendence is based on their tithing, so this would also provide whether the individual tithes regularly, e.g., supports the faith.

I agree it is IMHO cyber stalking. That sort of invasion of someone's privacy is not warranted. I think in the internet age some people think that they have the right too much of people's information. By all means protect yourself and remain cautious but treat each other with respect as well.

I've had some trouble with foreign scammers before, so I always google a potential date. I would expect my future date to google me also. But, the real way to play it safe is to exchange several messages, and then phone conversations. There's nothing wrong with taking the time to get to know someone well before meeting them in person. I consider it a red flag if a potential date is impatient to get together.

I don't mean to contradict you, but I consider it a "red flag," if someone I am getting to know does NOT want to meet in person within a reasonable timeframe. To be on the safe side, one should have face-to-face contact with someone communicating with at length. Especially if exchanging personal information.

Being "out there" here on CM, is another way to show to other Catholics that you are fairly "safe."
