Is there any way that you could indicate in a person's profile whether or not they are a paid member or not? I have sent numerous emotes and messages and I am pretty sure half of the people are not paid members and not able to reply. I think it is unfair to those of us who are paying members. Thank you Trish :rose
Trish this issue has been discussed numerous times. I don't want to start another thread on this so I will keep it brief. Many people do not decide to subscribe until they get a message from someone they are interested in. We have many success stories that came about from this scenario. Just because someone is subscribed and can respond does not mean they will. Based on dealing with 10's of thousands of singles over the years I have yet to have someone tell me that they didn't respond to someone they were really interested in. Your best chance at meeting someone on CatholicMatch is to stay engaged, keep your profile fresh regularly upload new and interesting photos of yourself (especially activities) and to really consider who you choose to contact. Here is a blog article I wrote some time ago that I still think holds true.
"In today's world, finding a good, faithful husband or wife is like finding a needle in a haystack. Fortunately, CatholicMatch.com is bringing single Catholics from all over to meet, to get to know each other and to broaden the 'pool' of eligible spouses!"
Rev. Frank Pavone
Founder, Priests for Life
"In Christian marriage, one's spouse is one's “Number Two” while the only “Number One” is God. CatholicMatch.com is laying the groundwork so that in loving God, future spouses may find the only way to adequately love each other."
Author of The Temperament God Gave You and The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse
"CatholicMatch can help you find your soul mate and maybe even yourself! Unlock the secret to your personality by understanding your temperament and that of your friends and even potential spouse! Take the temperament test on CatholicMatch, and find out whether you are choleric, sanguine, melancholic, or phlegmatic! You will get to know yourself (and your loved ones) a little better."
Faith & Family Radio Host, National Author & Speaker
"I think that reputable and orthodox Catholic Internet communities, like CatholicMatch.com, are prime meeting places for people looking for a future spouse."
