Hi Albert and welcome! I agree that there seems to be a lack of initiative of folks on this site at times. I've been on and off (mostly off) the site for the past few years myself. I also suppose I have been guilty of not keeping my information and pictures fresh and up-to-date. However, sometimes when you just receive an emoticon or no response at all, it may be because the person is not currently a paying member and can only respond with emoticons. Other than that, it does seem to me that as we get older many singles say they are looking for a committed relationship but are we really? I ask myself this question. Am I motivated and open enough to be open to others and their ways? We all kind of get set in our ways as we age and don't give them up easily. I think this may be even more difficult for relationships that are not in person. So, that being said, the things I am going to try to do is be more active on here, not give up despite some dry times and keep my site updated. And, of course, pray to the Lord of the harvest that our hearts desires may bear fruit; fruit that will last. God's speed! ;' )

Most of my emoticons are not blanks; there are actually messages attached to them, though the number of characters in the message is limited.

I have been unable to get girls to write back and engage in conversations. Not withstanding that many may not like the way I look, getting no responses in writing (many emoticons, no actual messages) is making the experience on catholic match a disappointing one. Any suggestions or is there a proper protocol that must be observed?

I saw your profile and I don't have an answer for you.

I think the women you write should respond even if it is to say "I'm not interested and this is why..." I myself try to respond to everyone. I checked out your profile and in my honest opinion Albert, I think it's your position on premarital sex. You said you disagreed with the church's position on it. I'm not suggesting that you lie and change it since that is your honest position and if you begin a relationship with a lie its obviously headed for failure.

I think you have a nice face, Albert! I am new too and don't know what to expect yet. Let's hang in there for a bit and see if things work out here.

I agree with Pedyne. I think you need to look into your position on premarital sex. Do not lie but pray and seek God in this area. That could be the deciding factor for many woman on this site. God bless you as you discern and pray.

If we find the answer to that we will be millionaires :-). But, having said that welcome!! Participate in the forums and get to know some of the posters. You'll be able to learn some things about them and then perhaps have time to ease into conversations outside the forums.

I didn't have a clue what the emoticons were nor what their purpose was at first and I had a few people who only sent emoticons and I didn't know what to do with them, I'd send something back and ask a question, get another emoticon?? They still confuse me, but not as much and they are a handy little tool to keep in touch and let smeone know you are thinking about them.

Yes, I think manners are important and there should be an online dating etiquette. I do have friends who just ignore posts if not interested but is nice to be courteous and friendly. Not sure what one says if not interested in the other person romantically or if views are not congruent. Is a good question. Bit Albert, I would have said to you that I think you look like the actor that played Julia Roberts love interest in Eat, Pray, Love movie!

I looked at your profile and the only thing that I could think might hinder interest on a Catholic site, is your MONTHLY Mass attendance. But that's only MY opinion ;-). Personally I'm interested in someone who's living their faith. Hang on in there ! I'm sure there's someone for you out there. Bless.
