I'm not taking it personally for sure :) I've known guys like that, that are just a little too nervous or shy to make contact (message or in person), and they seem to always let that control how they act not only during first contact but throughout all conversations and it ends up not going anywhere because they hold back way too much. So I guess I was just hoping that since this is a Catholic site we all know we have at least one big thing in common and that factor should be enough of an ice breaker to find that confidence that seems to be lacking.
I guess I'm just old fashioned in thinking how initial contact should work, and I'm definitely not trying to come across as harsh to any of the guys out there because when I was younger I was shy so I understand the feeling. On a dating site though, we're all here for a reason, to hopefully find someone special so why hold back if someone catches your eye? :)
I started online dating with the same hopes. I adopted the attitude that if he doesn't have the gumption to at least start a convo, then he probably isn't the guy for me. That frees up my time to focus on other things and people :) Just think of all the frustration they're saving you! ;)
