Criteria mismatch?

Jul 25th new
I've been contacting local CMers of all ages to invite them to an in person event. Sometimes, when trying to invite a younger man, I get a CM message saying Criteria Mismatch and that I will not be allowed to contact that person unless they "favorite" or message me first.
I didn't know CM had such a rule.

It's not a criteria mismatch per se, but based on the ages of the sender and recipient: if the younger party is less than a certain percentage of the age of the older, the message is not allowed unless the younger person itiniates the contact as stated (or if they are the same sex?)

You could ask either a male or a female younger than you to act as an intermediary.

Weird, as I thought CM was a place for Catholic friendships as well as dating. Do they really need to make rules for contact between adults over 18?
