One of my good friends is currently going through the same thing. It's simply not in her budget to join CatholicMatch (especially if she'll have to pay for dates in addition to the membership). Therefore, she just stays a browsing member and cannot message anyone in response.
To your friend Cara....

Please let her know, if she is invited out on a date, and he expects her to pay any part of it, he's not the one for her. This holds true for the first several dates.

I rarely come across rudeness versus total silence. I'd rather someone just come out and say that "I don't think we are a match but thank you asking/inquiring"... or whatever the initial communication was such as emotion thingy> emotiongram???. Though there is truth in the saying, "silence speaks volumes". I just take it as they are not interested in beginning a dialogue. WE are all at an age of mutual respect and self confidence that we should no longer fear a rude response. Should that happen, then be grateful that this is a type of person you really would not want to be in communication with. Keep the Holy Spirit guiding you to your true self. xo Joyce

Thank you Trish. That is wonderful. If you are not interested just say something or just say Buzz off. It is better to have someone say something then wonder why.

Also the problem is like so many have stated already if they don't have a full membership then they can't do much. This is where Catholic Match need's to do something sometimes I know I get mad when someone does not send something back but I forget they may not be able to. Catholic match need's to do something about letting people know about the status instead of just having people wonder why someone is not able to reply back to a message. Just something like this member is not able to rely back to your message that way the person who sent it and not think that person is trying to avoid them. They have you in a catch 22 situation on this site you want to meet people but you can't unless they are a full paying member. because they can't get back to you.

Sounds like a reasonable suggestion, Steven. If we just knew they couldn't respond, then we wouldn't wonder.

I've been wondering why that is. I understand not allowing people to put contact info in their profiles, as that would subvert the entire system, but why isn't there an indicator as to whether someone is full member or free?

For someone to just look at pictures and make contact without showing any interest in the profile no matter the length, indicates their attention is only physical. That is shallow and yes I find it insulting. If they dismiss the profile, then what else will they dismiss? I respect anyone who reads a profile, finds conflicts (IE age parameters) and sends a request to the person to reconsider. It shows a true interest in the person.
I agree with you here 100%. It means a lot when someone messages me and the things they mention show that they have actually read through my profile. Similarly, it leaves a bad impression if they ask questions or go over topics that were already covered in my profile.

I've always wondered the same thing.

My personal view is that anyone who only has the thought/creativity/inclination/energy to send me an emotigram is not the type of person that I would develop a relationship with. If they are unwilling to make an effort at a little more communication, it shows to me that they are unwilling to make an effort at a relationship. Im new at Catholic Match, and I have yet to receive a message that is more than a hello or an emotigram. Responding with, thanks but no thanks, would require more effort on my part than the feeble effort they made in contacting me!
