I do agree, the response time around here is very S L O W. You need to give it plenty of time and take every opportunity you can to meet and greet persons you may be interested in and even those you think are not for you. Sometimes you do all the right things and no one responds but every now and then you get into a conversation that may lead to something more substantial. Do not lose hope.

Billie,

The answer is to persevere.respond to all views, comments, and forum writers who intrigue you. go to the Birthday list and send out birthday wishes to the ones in your age range (although I try not to let age get in my way, I draw the line at someone much younger than myself). You have to keep working things if you want it to work. I recently had my first F2F and I had been on CM over a year with some conversation from 2 nice gentlemen. One of the men I communicate with I met in the Forums and the other was started from a birthday wish. The person I met did not meet my "profile" but he had viewed me (quite awhile earlier) and I sent him a Thank You note and things progressed from there. Where it will go...I do not know. Nothing is ever guaranteed in life.

My husband died December 22, 2006. Married 11 1/2 years. We knew each other for 10 years before we married.
Not long enough.

Thanks, Marge for a great thread. Not only is it informative but it is also a little therapeutic.

Widowed almost 3 years-married for 35 and dated for 4 years. Feel like the rug pulled out from under me. What to do now?
