After several months know each other it better meet each other face to face. my best friend met her husband from catholic singles after have long distance relationship for a year he propose her to married with him.
I am new too in CM since June and all men I am interested I send message many say they don"t have time to chat long distance and many view my profile not reply.
Good luck then I wish you will find your soulmate in CM soon.
Nice thread, Kathy.
I've made a lot of friends through the forums. We started emailing, then met in person at CM gatherings (big ones) or just got a handful of us together for lunch. Some have become FB or telephone friends, some are road trip/vacation pals, some are still email and forum.
One size does not fit all.
Without knowing the habits of others, no one is likely to be certain about the correct answer to your inquiry, but I'd expect that the vast majority of moments of first awareness arrive from a profile, a match notification, a view or an entry in the fora with only a few instances of initial notice coming from a CM event. If I have interest, I'll start by trying to find out if she'd like to engage in any kind of communication. While I'll indicate a readiness to talk on the phone or meet directly early on, I'll also let her know that I'm happy to proceed according to her pace and preferences.
Pacing and facing back and forth,
I have been a skeptic of the Mutual Matching system.. Only members able to marry in the church are eligible to participate, so that meant that I was restricted to Annulled, Never Married and Widowed members.. I have learned over my years here that a divorced/annulled woman is very unlikely to get much attention from Never Married men so that cut my 'potentials'by quite a lot. So while I would check out the profiles of the Annulled and Widowed men. The week prior to Easter Larry popped up in my Mutual Matches. So I viewed his profile, but did not attempt contact. He was widowed. The Monday after Easter he viewed me back. I happened to be visiting friends in his town, but I was leaving that day. So I sent a smart-alecky emote about him waiting til the last day I was in Louisville to look at my profile. He was online and wrote me back right away saying he thought I would say he was too far away. It was about 90 miles difference.
By Wednesday he was asking to meet me. He was willing to make the drive to where I was at. The following Sunday he did..We never talked on the phone beforehand, which is totally unlike me. We spent about 3 hours together and he asked for a second date which took place the following Wednesday. We spent 12 hours together and he told me then that he wanted to see me every time I was off going forward. Which is what we did..
He did not come on CM to do chats or play in the Forums..He came here to find a wife.. He was intent on his purpose and he accomplished his mission.. He didn't want to mess around with women who didn't share his goal. I was ready and he was ready. As it turned out we are perfectly matched. We enjoy each others company very very much and have a wonderful life together.
