Here's how I see it: We are many in this Catholic Match sea, with many preferences, personalities, geographic locations, hang ups, exercise types, food preferences, education and work backgrounds. Hopefully we are not scammers and are all single and available to marry under the Catholic church. The purpose of Catholic Match is to offer us a place where we can be ourselves in a safe environment, let others know who we really are and decide if they want to contact us or not. We are adults and need to work to be informed and take care of ourselves, even on CM. Every person is different. To group men/women into broad cattegories is naive. We are all individuals. I'll meet the right man for me more than halfway.

"So my sister and I were talking about those lovely emails that tell you. "Johnny has viewed your profile!!!!" I say if there is no follow up with a message/emotiongram etc., then it is another rejection. She says that he wants you to view his profile and respond. What do you think????"

Good question. I disagree with it being a rejection. More like, the woman views the guy's profile and is just seeing what's out there. I have had some good exchanges with women on here who viewed me and, months later, we communicated.

Hi Molly,


Men tend to be more direct communicators. If I view a profile, I view it. If I'm interested I'd send a message. I wouldn't take a view of my profile as a rejection however. I'm flattered that someone viewed me and I leave it at that. I have occasionally sent a message to someone who has viewed my profile. Beyond that, the ball is in their court.

Well, MaryAlice -- the obvious solution is to take those fluffy snowballs, pack them hard and make sure you hit your target. That should wake up the guys who are asleep at the switch.

Hi Sir Ray!

I've always kind of considered my browsing a man, more than once, was a sign that I was interested in him and would like to hear from him. And many times, I've had to drop more than my hanky by sending an emotigram with the same sentiment ... that I would enjoy hearing back from him. They either ignore it (by not responding), or send back a thank you with some reason why they're not interested. I give them credit for responding.

Hope you're having a very fruitful and holy Advent season!

You should be receiving responses. Hopefully, you'll be getting more positive ones so you and a deserving man can discover each other. You need not settle for anything less. hug

A blessed Advent season to you, also, MaryAlice... theheart

It certainly is a nudge, Kathleen -- and it should prompt some reaction on the other end. Too bad you can't send a loud noise with your view to wake up the sleepyheads out there.
