So, do men on CM mind receiving the first communication (a smiley face or rosary) from a woman? If he looked at my profile and didn't send me a gram but I look at his and would like to communicate, is that horribly forward?? I am traditional and wouldn't ask a guy out but, with this site the gram seems casual enough to indicate interest either as a friend or maybe more.

Thank you for asking this as I was wondering the same thing. But if you message them first, does it mean they will respond? I'm fairly new here and I did take the initiative to message (short and basic, nothing too forward) a couple of guys, but no response.

dont' worry Rose, not getting a response is the norm for me too -- if someone takes the time to say hello to me, i say hello back. If a man does not hav e the courtesy to return a "hello", he is not worth your time

We're open for business. It certainly doesn't hurt to take the initiative. With so many features and profiles, it's possible that a gentleman could miss a particular one. It won't hurt to let him know you're out there. We won't take them as a marriage proposal -- just as a friendly "Hello" and a warm greeting. Certainly there's nothing wrong with that.

If there's any guy who criticizes a lady for initiating an emote exchange, send him my way to get him straightened out.

Rose, the only time I have trouble replying is when I receive an empty emote.


On the flip side, I have taken the initiative a number of times. Generally there is a response, sometimes not. I just move on and archive it after 6 days. The funny thing is, sometimes those archived messages are revived with a response, sometimes 2 to 3 weeks later. You see many people get very busy and do not have CM as part of their daily diet. So, keep casting your line on the waters, nibbles will come, especially to someone so lovely. rose

Hi Meg ,

In the new age of technology , considering , distance , opportunity, social media, Time, and location , the rules of dating have changed a bit.
From my perspective , with both male and femle profiles paid for and posted by the 10's of thousands , it is perfectly reasonable for a woman who notices a man on Cm and finds him someone she is attracted to , for her to take the first step and let him know. He is not even aware you have noticed him until you view his profile and even then has no idea , if you are attracted to him.

Steppping out in the age of information technology and initializing the first contact , sending a clear signal that you likere someone I believe would be welcomed by most men , me included . Forget the" maybe more" for now. As a man any woman who states she is interested in getting to know me is a great step , setting the table for me to take or not take a step of my own .


Nothing ventured , nothing gained , something ventured , nothing lost , something possible :)
