All I got was a lousy discount...
That all said, it was apparent, this is nothing at all different then any other dating web site, it has some kind of sort of filter towards making sure they have people of the same ideals and faith as each other, but at this stage, it only complicates things, doesn't help. Luckily I didn't come here expecting anything different then any other dating web site. You as a guy, sign up, then are supposed to work it to death, endless random PM's, and use the forums to market yourself on top of it.... isn't this why I pay a place, so I don't have to do that very thing, I could be doing that anywhere for free? Alas, the whole seeing this place advertised on the back of the bulletin at the parishes I attend and have attended, now has me disturbed about it. If it's just a money game for the church to make off of, or if they are just naive, we are about to find out and so it's been a matter of assessing what it's about in the nuances and details, rather then as a whole.
Great original topic, I'm sure it's going to help their market research, my whole aspect being here, we have this stuff all over the place, we don't need to tell them what they already know but refuse to act upon. Bottom line, a devout Catholic comes here to find other devout Catholics that are marrying age, that believe in the full teachings of the church, and the primary volume should be from people that have never been married, not for trying to initiate round two. The whole divorce/annulled/remarry thing, has became way, way too common place and is now the norm, even within the Catholic church... So, this too get's a huge thumbs down.
Anyway, as stated, my time is short here, so I'm opting to, when I respond, write a bit more then usual, don't expect me to be back here posting in a few days.
Modern society is very ego-centric, and the CM membership is not immune from this malady. Peruse the forums and you will see many and frequent complaints of the same nature as yours.
Is there a problem? Absolutely. Is it CM's fault? Not that I can see....
I came to CM after seeing it on the back of my church bulletin. I wanted to come to a site that had members with the same faith and that means a lot. Although I haven't met anyone yet, I have found a lot of "friends" - male and female!
When my last relationship ended, I immediately came back here. Who knows where it will lead? Only God knows that and he's not tellin'!
Be blessed All!
Moving forward it's going to be difficult raising children in a society where many of the church's teachings are considered "out of date", so having a partner that is both committed and faithful is a necessity in the way I would want to bring up a family. If that means I have to go to the opposite end of the U.S. or find that someone in Canada, so be it.
