That is helpful, Ray. I thought all pictures were of active members.

I'm also new to this site, and have much the same problem expressed by Albert. What's the generally-accepted way to initiate contact with someone if you like her profile? I generally send an emotigram with a short, personal message, but usually don't get a response.

Thanks, amazing paintings!

Albert, just read your profile, you attend mass monthly and do believe in premarital sex.

This could be a block for many here, but you will need patience to find somebody that believes as you do.

Keep searching, "Seek and ye shall find"

Best to you,

biggrin

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.

Thanks for your answer. I do believe that people should be married and have a healthy relationship but God didn't the same plan for everyone. I have wanted to be married w kids since my teens but it just didn't happen that way. Nothing is more pitiful than a 45 yo virgin, I'm here to live life w what God gave me. It doesn't mean that's all I want, I want marriage but if it doesn't happen, I won't be waiting around not to ever express love the way I choose even if my priest doesn't approve. It's not for everyone but being catholic isn't about listening to your priest but about listening to God through your heart.

It's not the priests that are laying down the law, or the ones you need to worry about getting approval from, it's God. God wants all of us to enter Heaven, yet we need to remember this path into Heaven is narrow (for God tells us this). And that means not only do we need to believe in Him, and have faith, but we must follow His word. And His word is the same for each of us. God doesn't give us a heart to sin against Him (God wouldn't tell us engaging in premarital sex is ever o.k.). That's Satan trying to do that.


But, as for having different plans for each of us, yes, God did make each of us with unique talents/gifts.

My guess is that most of us on this site are looking for 7 out of 7 of the Catholic Church beliefs, including yes, the no premarital sex point.

Also, most of us won't write back until we've been written to as it isn't considered ladylike (conservative).

Even though you may believe in premarital sex for yourself, certainly you would respect a woman that doesn't. Make sure you let her know that you would be respectful of her beliefs and it's not a deal breaker for you. You might be surprised at the beautiful woman God has waiting for you:) Read the Book of Tobit in the Catholic Bible, it is truly inspirational on this topic.

I think the problem is, by the time you end up on a website, you are already in one of three categories:

- not really interested in a relationship, but either think you are or say you are to keep people off your back. I'd say this is 70% of the folks.

- totally unattractive to the opposite sex. Perhaps 15%.

- serious & attractive. This 15% only stay on site about 6 months, because they find someone, get busy, and get married.

Sorry to be such a downer, but I've been around the neighborhood for a while and this is how it looks to me.

Wowser... eyepopping ... Marge, you never cease to amaze! I haven't been here that long, but I've never seen one of the "happily ever after" stories for a couple from group 1 or 2.
