Don't be afraid to be honest -- you don't have to be hurtful, but you can be honest, and react to honesty with maturity. If, after a time, it becomes clear that there is not a relationship budding, don't take it personally! Develop friendships with folks -- you never know where it may lead!

Do not hide. Get out there! Be active. A body (profile) at rest stays at rest.

Don't forget to pray!

Don't despair. Hope springs here, all around us.

Don't be jealous.

Don't lie about who you are.

Don't build castles in the clouds. Work on a strong foundation here.

Be careful if you open your heart and show compassion, kindness and a little humor.
It can be totally mis-read by many,,,not by all thankfully,,,Then our sweet, kind Catholic brothers and sisters may dive in for the kill and attack your open heart and compassion and humor.

Don't assume that everyone is a merciful, loving Catholic/Christian,,,,at least not practicing..

Don't assume the goodie-goodie stuff on someone's profile is real. Like most things in life,,,,"If it sounds too good to be true,,,it probably is NOT true.."""""""

Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness..
Ease my troubles
that's what you do.!!!!

Shouldn't we be singing this to all people on all levels,,brothers,,sisters,,friends,,,Sweethearts,,Moms,,Dads...ETC..

Try not to get smitten with a charming, decent man, who knows how swoon a lady, who is not your age range and is too faraway. lovestruck! Blinded by love

It's kind of embarrassing, rude for sure! I try to live by the Golden Rule,
but am astounded when the courtesy is not reciprocated. I can take an emote that says something indicating they don't want to continue on, etc...but I can't understand avoidance, like they don't even notice your emails.
It is our Christian, if not Catholic duty to love one another...but do we really?

Yeah, this just happened to me ... twice by the same person. He told made me believe he was apologetic, and what not, and it was his "evil self", then I tried to post a photo of our engagement on FB, and all heck broke loose. I'm sure it was just a coincidence. eyebrow

People aren't what they say they are always. You have to be very careful. Always stick to your Catholic values and hold onto them for dear life. No matter what happens, you can always be glad for that.

But don't utterly dismiss the possibility ... I was ready to cross the continent, but God had other Plans... (... our ages, were compatible though ...). smile

I agree with you Mary, this doesn't translate from the real world over to cyberspace. The dynamic though is the same. When guy is in public, on the scene, with a gal, he's considered pre-validated by outside women. What this means is that it appears he has been already checked out and is on the up and up. This can be a problem if he's with his girlfriend or date, for we aren't supposed to be wandering our eyes, nor receptive to outside women regardless of what they do to attempt to communicate in a flirtatious way.

So many good comments. My take on all:

1. No eyeglasses.
2. No rude messages.
3. If you are interested, say so.
4. If you are not interested, either say so or go in hiding.
5. If someone you messaged goes into hiding, move on.
6. No profile picture, no interest..
7. What, you waiting for Brad Pitt? Shania Twain?
8. 'Crying out loud, message somebody.
9. You think they're going to wait forever?
10. Messaged and not interested? See #4.

Finally, no one on CM wishes ever to cause another pain. Take it on faith. And if not convinced, report it to CM.

St. Mary Magdalen, pray for us.
