Very little in Life is Perfect, and as someone said previously.. "you get what you put into it".
I have no idea if I will meet someone to marry on this site. I can honestly say that I have met some truly wonderful men and women! Talking to folks in the forum, and personal messages exchanged have shown me that my experience on CM is invaluable! I have deepened my faith. The gift of talking to someone who knows and respects my morals and values is incredibly liberating. Our conversations and topics are more focused because we have already laid out a foundational understanding of how we feel on some important relationship areas.
My best advice is to read up the forums, review the articles, and ask questions! Oh, and get comfortable being a little uncomfortably challenged. It is good for the soul!
I well remember about 5 or 6 months after first coming on CM, and feeling like I was being sucked into a Black Hole--"wasting my time/not meeting a mate/throwing away $$". At that time, I was reading some of the Forum posts, but not really actively posting and communicating. Then I extended my subscription, and began taking chances--posting more, initiating threads, sending emotes and comments to others about their profiles (both men and women), and best of all, attending CM events. I've met so many wonderful people here, online and F2F, and been able to share and deepen my own faith. I'm growing in Christ, and the others here are my fertilizer!
It's a good place as any to help us prepare for marriage.Helps us grow in the faith,get insights from the other side of the fence.Develop friendships.Get support and guidance.Just have fun.
