I wanted to respond in particular to the above comment. I've suggested the idea to CM that they add a placing subscription on hold option. Please vote for it! Here it is:
http://catholicmatch.uservoice.com/forums/227102-member-discussion/suggestions/5316760-placing-subsc...
Let's try this again:
catholicmatch.uservoice.com.

catholicmatch.uservoice.com.

If it doesn't work, go to the feedback section and search for "on hold"

Thanks Kristen. It doesn't seem to work and I don't know how to get to the feedback section. Can you please talk me through it. Still a bit of a newbie in experience here (despite the fact that i have had a profile for over a year).
I do vote hold option available; it would be helpful for many reasons for different people.

Hi Rosanna,

Hit the link I gave you and then when you get to the "page not found" message, click on "Customer Feedback for CatholicMatch". That will take you to the Feedback site with a search function. Type "on hold" into the search, and it will give you two matches. Click on the "Placing subscriptions on hold" option and that's where you can vote!

Kristen,

Excellent points! One touch of God's favor and it will all turnaround. Lack of commitment from a man just shows he isn't ready for an Ephesians 5 marriage. God knows what to do in everyone's life to cause us to get to the next spiritual level.

Kristen, but "commitment" is such a subjective thing, isn't it? One person's commitment means no secret friendships, dalliances, perversions, etc., and yet another person's "commitment" means that you are have the 'great honor' of being their main role as in a 'relationship', but don't get into their private friendships of the opposite sex, who they are spending time with secretively, sleeping with, etc. There are some people that say they want a commitment, but really just want one person to be committed to them, but when it comes down to it, they simply can never remain committed to one person for more than a few months. But they will never admit it, because no one will ever give them a chance if they come out and admit it. Sociopaths? Yes, very likely, but fortunately, there are good men. Just be very careful of the silver tongued devils. They will focus on trying to sell you how wonderful they are, but notice how much effort they make in selling themselves to you. A lot of us women, I think, are very trusting. So, if a man goes on and on about no one giving him a chance, is he telling the truth? Or, is he simply trying to distract from the fact that he goes through tons of women at a time?

There are lots of good men out there, but they won't/don't sweet talk. I think we just need to be more patient to getting to know someone and not put all our eggs in one basket by wishing and hoping but by being pragmatic and patient. And keep to your Catholic principles, because a true gentleman will wait ... not just for you... but wait all together, if you catch my drift.

(quote) Kristen-878108 said: That is probably the sad truth, Bernie. Honestly, when I began this process a little over a year ago, I naively looked forward to it! I saw all these wonderful men on here, and I thought this would be great fun! Then I realized that all these nice men on here were not going to communicate with me! And the few that did were definitely not ready for any sort of committed relationship. What's the deal? I've been "viewed to death." It's a bit of a blow to the self esteem. I've changed my pictures time and again, rewrote my profile several times, tried a number of methods - viewing, sending emotes, participating in the forums, NOTHING WORKS. Apparently CM is an online catalog. I would imagine the newer models (younger) that require less shipping and handling (i.e. live in one's backyard) probably get more interest. But I definitely think you've hit the nail on the head. Getting married requires self-sacrifice and commitment. If a man can't even commit to sending a message, well, that's a problem.
Hi Kristen, interesting discussion you have kick started here. Sometimes I think God has put an invisible shield around me, forbidding any interested men from making contact. Just my theory. Smile. We can but try....

If God allows it, it will be. If not, acceptance, deep breath, roll up the sleeves and put the hand on the plough and keep working for the Kingdom. I desire sainthood too...keep the faith.
