I'm not saying guys are creepy or out of place for trying to spark up relationship at church, I'm just saying there are a lot of guys out there that feel that way, some guys feel even more awkward then normal in this kind of environment, so if a women feels like no one even sees her, she might have to be more inviting to someone she is interested in and not wait until the guy comes up to her.

I am in a rather large parish. I tend to sit in the same general area for a few months, and then move 90 degrees. So if I have seen someone before, I am comfortable enough to say hello. The gift of a large parish is that you can be actively involved without feeling like you are sticking out. At one time I was in a small parish that needed folks to come forward, and I was doing so much between parish council, liturgy commission, RCIA, and the archdiocese committees, I felt like the proverbial "Church Lady" because I had a hard time saying NO.
(I have gotten better now at saying, "thank you for thinking of me, but I am not available at that time.")

I am in a very large parish as well. Doesn't seem like there's too many singles there. Almost all families and married couples. I don't think it's a good place to meet men.

Hi Melissa, I too am is the same boat. I feel the same way as you do that when I send people emoticons and messages to people they tend not to respond back, which at times feels frustrating. This ia what kind of draws me to giving up. However, after reading other peoples responses I agree that we should not give up. We should leave it in God's hands and trust him. Our matches will come in time.

Now, the question is firstly, are you a cool Cracker Jack prize or a lame prize? Are you the decoder ring, or are you this:

Any time I hear the words "decoder ring", I think of Ralphie twittering with glee every morning when he checked the mail for his Ovaltine swag in 'A Christmas Story' laughing

Well Sistas, it is like this: First of all we gotta change our focus. Yep! Start looking at the cars in the Church parking lot. Mr. Single man is out there! Let him walk in to church. Scope out the car or truck....any sport memorabilia? What team? Then look up the last game on your smart phone. Go in to church. Sit next to, behind, or in front of him. Make eye contact! Pay attention to the liturgy. During the Sign of Peace, say the usual, "peace be with you"...followed by "good to see you again!" (While still holding his hand!) Then continue with Mass as usual. God is with you! You are in Church, at Mass! If he is the right one, he will notice! that is unless he is like me and so into the liturgy that you just don't see the tree because the forest is so lovely in the sunlight!
Just a thought!!!
A guy I knew did that to me, and it freaked me out. I'm sorry, but when I am in a church, it's about our Lord, not about the Dating Game. I just was not expecting it and it made me uncomfortable around him outside of the church, but that's just me. He could have made the same eye contact and cheeky grin outside of the church and that would have been perfectly fine.
