Thank you Jacqueline;
I'm starting to notice that this is much more than just a dating site. It is very engaging to the point where I just fell among my friends.

Bohdan,being a dreamer myself, I would have found it almost painful being on C.M before my Annulment was granted.I would have found it very hard not to hope and dream-and feel attraction.I personally could not have been here...yet where does one go to find that support and friendship that is generated through C.M?
I think the "Friendship Only" sounds wise,and regular confession-and the will to keep learning about our faith.

Thank you Ann;
Your advice is very wise. The very reason I started this thread, was because I felt uncomfortable.
I do find it "very hard not to hope and dream-and feel attraction". Really, very hard.

You advise "the will to keep learning about our faith". I have been studying my faith in depth, regularly for last few years. Do you think my presence here might be contrary to Catholic teachings?
Please don't hesitate to be open, whatever opinion you express, I would not be offended. On the contrary It could be a valuable lesson to me.

Does it make sense? YES!

First, technically speaking, this is not a dating site. It's a place for Christian fellowship. That's why there are blogs and articles and discussions not related strictly to getting romance going. If you want to make new friends of either sex, this is a good place.

Second, after a relationship ends (no matter what kind of relationship or how it ends) we need to rediscover ourselves as individuals -- not as part of a couple. This takes time. The give and take in the forums is a great way to find out things about yourself and the opposite sex that you never dreamed of.

Third, making new acquaintances brings us out of the self-absorption that this re-discovery process may cause. Prayer requests, secrets confided, shared pain all give us reasons to pray. We hope that leads us to being better Catholics.

So, keep on plugging, hang out in the forums, attend an event...or start one yourself. And have fun!

Just another thought Ann;
I do "hope and dream-and feel attraction", whether I am a member here or not. After all I do meet a lot of people, some of them Catholic women, eligible for marriage. This is what made me to decide to proceed with annulment after 15 years of being a single parent, although I haven't met my queen out there.
I refrained from approaching such women, other as their brother in faith. I don't want to make false impression or mislead anyone here or anywhere else.
I just changed my status to "Friendship Only", I think it was good advice.

I also would like to tell you, that if I found here, or anywhere else, the woman of my dreams, who is awaiting the annulment verdict, I would wait for her, until the decision is made. If and when her annulment was granted, then I would make my intentions clear. If she had known my intentions already, I would reaffirm.

If her annulment was not granted, honestly speaking I don't know what I would do, after all she would by my one and only, would I start looking for another one and only? Can we really meet more than one, in our lifetime? Is it possible that there are many out here that could be a perfect match?

Hope Pope Francis bridges back to Vatican two and makes it easier not harder for annulments . Makes marriage harder . Continues the GOOD work of pope John 23 .So far its been that way .The new Pope mobile is the Ford Focus used with no frills . What Does OBAMA drive ?

Beside annulment issue, Pope Francis took my heart by storm. He consecrated His Papacy to Our Lady of Fatima. Those of you who know what it means, may understand that he is going to be humble, but uncompromising. We can expect miracles.
