After taking a break from the dating world for about a year, I have come back with renewed energy and a new perspective. I hope I can say honestly that I have a better understanding of what really matters in a partner, and I definitely feel like faith is critical. I have had little success in the past with other dating sites, and so I hope my faith can lead me to meet a great Catholic woman.
But still, I feel like I come across too strong too early, have little to talk about (I really have simple tastes) and I can never tell what I should say if or how to continue a conversation (or even WHEN or HOW to continue a courtship through the internet). I feel much more natural in person.....but sometimes you just end up talking to people far away.
Can you guys give me some rules of thumb for this? Is one message a day a good starting point? Should I be the driving force in going from messages to chatting to phone calls? All help is appreciated!
