What type of feature would you propose that Catholic Match add to address this "issue"?
You just have to realize that most of the time, your emails or emotigrams will not elicit any response. To me, that means that I just need to work harder, realizing that only a fraction of the folks that I contact will respond at all. Of course I keep track of all this, so I know what the statistics are, I don't have to guess.
For me, it is kind of a statistical thing. If you know that most emails will not produce any response, then you send out more emails to compensate for the poor return rate.
Think like a saleman, you have to knock on a lot of doors to sell something, in this case, yourself.
There are several threads along this line just now, there always have been and there likely always will be.
Personally, I figure it's like sending out a message in a bottle. Odds are, your message just hasn't been received.
Been there done that and the t-shirt was too small so I gave it away. LOL If I had a dollar for every correspondence that received no answer I would be able to buy lunch and dinner for a couple days in one week. Trust me it's not that they care but more that they don't care at all about anyone. Even the paying members don't respond. So don't take it personally it happens to us all. Funny thing though, I have gotten some messages from women here whom I did not contact. It seems on this site if you do nothing you may actually hear from someone, but don't hold your breath waiting. It happens but it's a rare case.
On rsvp.com.au they have a feature with about 8 possible answers if you don't want to proceed

1. Thanks for the smile. I am currently corresponding with another member on this site.
2. I am only looking for someone local
3. Thank you for the smile. I am not looking in your area at the moment.
4.I don't think we are match. Thank you for taking the time to message me.
