Ann, You are right. It's difficult to educate the populace. Hope those individuals out there read your response. Maryjane

Also agree with Ann. I have indicated before on the forums that if you have no interest in my inquiry, then don't respond. I can take it. And I understand.

This applies to all the women as well. If you post a picture of yourself with one man who looks to be approximately your age please explain who he is. Not all of us men are able to identify that guy as your brother vs your ex-boyfriend.

People lack social skills cuz they don't teach it in school just like they don't teach other important things.

(quote) Doug-974859 said: So many good comments. My take on all:

1. No eyeglasses.
2. No rude messages.
3. If you are interested, say so.
4. If you are not interested, either say so or go in hiding.
5. If someone you messaged goes into hiding, move on.
6. No profile picture, no interest..
7. What, you waiting for Brad Pitt? Shania Twain?
8. 'Crying out loud, message somebody.
9. You think they're going to wait forever?
10. Messaged and not interested? See #4.

Finally, no one on CM wishes ever to cause another pain. Take it on faith. And if not convinced, report it to CM.

St. Mary Magdalen, pray for us.



Unfortunately we have to deal with these people but wow, Part B of #4 is one cowardly action. I hate it when that happens but on the flip side an inner voice tells me it's probably for the best so I just do the #5.
Final thought...#8 should be #1

I'm with you , Katie...most bizarre!

(quote) Dawn-58330 said: Actually, I respectfully disagree with this. People not taking things on this site seriously enough is the biggest reason people are dissatisfied. If more people were serious in their approach to matters here-- everything from honestly and thoughly completing their profile, to answering communicatio, to prayer, to asking and accepting dates, to doing all they could to be able to marry within the Church when they meet their future spouse-- we would not see so many threads complaining or bemusing about their struggle with online CM dating.

Don't be cavalier, lazy, or flippant about things on this site. But don't take things too personally. Invest heavily in your time, treasure and talent, but guard/ train your heart.
Agree. ;)

I think social skills, such as being considerate and having regard for
other's feelings, being respectful and considering another's needs before your own...etc....is taught to us by our parents when we are young. When parents are lax and don't instill these qualities in their children then the children grow up to be immature adults. Courtesy, respect, being truly interested in someone else besides just yourself (me,me,me!)
manners, social ettiquette and grace, self respect, being a good listener...I think ALL
of these are things we learn from good ole Mom and Dad.
