I'm a regular dater. . . rarely do I lack a date for any social function, if I WANT one, but sometimes its more fun to go alone and talk to many people. . . I think if I'd been Catholic, sooner, it would have been different and I wouldn't be on this site, to be candid. When I was an Evangelical, we were STRONGLY discouraged from considering anyone with a marred past (unless perhaps it was something like chemical addiction that didn't involve promiscuity) or those with sexual experience, or divorced (that would include annulled), because we should be looking for virtuous women who had been on the missions field teaching or nursing and were coming home. . . seriously, it was very much like that. It was assumed that the singles of all ages were chaste and always had been or you were going straight to hell! I've had better opportunities with Catholic women since I joined the Church than I EVER did with the Evangelical community. . . there were long-term relationships, but there were always issues from my side or the lady's side based upon taboos, i.e. have you ever consumed too much alcohol, did you smoke cigarettes in college, etc. even if these were in the past---so I found it very difficult to sustain relationships when there was ALSO an air of much hypocrisy. . . (the longest term, a five year relationship that was off and on, resulted in my discovery of rampant infidelity in steady dating, but it was "away" from the hometown). The Catholic community seems much more forgiving and willing to accept people for what they are OR what they were and no longer are. . . since when is a 35-40 year old woman a futile beauty? Sheesh.

Kristen thank you for posting such a great topic. I am forty two years old, and there is nothing I would like better than to meet a woman my own age on this site. I have not had any luck on this site, but I intend to keep on trying. I just don't have anything in common with much younger women. Over the summer I was having a casual conversation with a woman around thirty years old, and she did not even know who Arnold Horshack was (Welcome Back Kotter). My parents had a six month age difference, and they were married a few months shy of forty years before my Mom died. This is a great topic, and there are a few guys out there who are 40-something who would love to meet a nice 40-something woman with stong morals and values.

Ladies it saddens me when i feel your pain i wish you were closer to me hug

If i think like you i would feel the same pain and disappointment. I went through one man profile and i felt this is Mr right with everything that match my standards but i was chocked when he mentioned the age range he is looking to date between 30 and 35 and he is 51. this makes me doubt his maturity. I doubt him not myself.

I came to CM in hope to find the right match who shares my faith and belief. I check everyday but i have my life that i enjoy too i treat myself good and do all kind of positive and happy things. When it is time to happen it will happen. I know many men look for younger women but there is a fair number of men who also look for women from the same age. It is not always the age that drive them away sometimes it is what we write on our profile that doesn't match their expectations or standards. Mr right will come right on time wink

My advice to you and to me through you is to be patient and to live your life and fill it with joyful and happy things and Mr right could come any time through CM or through any place you go to maybe the church the gym the gas station wink ..... Best of luck to you all! theheart

I'll admit that I am pretty sure who she was talking to, and it was not you.

Dear Mods, Please rename this forum "Men, What's Wrong With You?" since at least half of Single Living threads cover this ground. Barring that put a sticky with this title at the top of this forum and allow the thread to grow indefinitely.

Its called, "reply and quote" for a reason, otherwise, it looks like a response to the most recent post---as in this case. . . it may not photograph here with green flourescent lights (all of my pictures) but my hair is reddish-brown---so its easy for me to get my Irish up. In that case, I apologize if your remarks, Kathi, were not aimed in my direction.
