What is so disappointing to me is that when we are matched with a guy in our age category (& they do seem to be few & far between) they don't seen to be interested in the least little bit. Wouldn't you think that if a "match" is indicated, they would take a moment to view our profile, say hello, ask a question or two. There had to be something that generated the match; why not pursue it a bit? I wrote to one of my few matches & asked if we might try messaging. The response was kind of like, "I guess so; perhaps; well, maybe" Whoop-di-doo! I really wanted to jump right on that one! WHY ARE THEY HERE???!!!
I understand how you feel, Carol. Can't tell you how many CM ladies in my age range that I've sent messages to after viewing their profiles and heard absolutely nothing back. Not even a browse most times. Chirp Chirp

At least they've responded to you and by their lack of enthusiasm, have let you know that they aren't interested. Don't let it get you down. They weren't worth your time anyway. If you have to "pull teeth" to get someone to respond to your request, then don't waste your time on 'em.

God Bless!

There have been, and possibly still are, some wealthy people here for whom this wouldn't be an issue.

Hah! Wouldn't that be great Jack? Like instant mashed potatoes. Add some water, a bit of butter, wait 5 minutes and presto... "instant spouse." If you figure how to make it work let me know. I would be satisfied just to have a good fella to go out for coffee or see a movie!

The "something" is a computer program that doesn't seem to generate useful results as far as I can tell and essentially ignores the criteria that I have set out in my profile. I likewise ignore its irrelevant output.

I have found that many of my matches seem like someone that I would like to get to know. But as we have to remember that profiles are here but many people are not active. When I find someone that I might like... I send a quick emote and suggest they check out my profile and the forums. I figure if the get active in the forums then they will see what I post. I know that many of my friends have found there mate in the forums and one even moved from Southern CA to Sacramento.
