I put my focus on raising my three sons and letting Our Lord fill the void.

Linda, one of the good things about CM is that it can help us to connect to someone else who is widowed. We all get discouraged, but we all know that "quick fixes" do not last. I look at the lives of the saints and how they persevered in prayer...some for many years before God gave them the desires of their heart. So, we must continue to step outside of our comfort zone online and offline. Technology is now a big part of our lives and it isn't going away. I am thankful for the female friends I have made here as we are able to support each other on our journey. My prayer this morning, "Lord Jesus, help me to enjoy the gift of today and help me to live in the present moment." Amen. rose

Rochelle, do you know why you get no response when you ask someone to just complete an interview or to answer the simplest question like "where is------?" when it is a match in your own state? Sometimes I think messages are not received or I am doing things wrong. Is there any type of notification when someone receives your message other than "message successfully sent"? Do they just ignore you based on photo?

One possible explanation for an unanswered email is that the person is no longer active on CM. But other people may just make a snap decision that you are not the one for them, but not give you the courtesy of a response. I have been pretty consistent about answering emails, even if it is obvious to me that I am not interested in that person.

I understand that some studies show that the better looking people on dating websites get a lot more email than everyone else. If you get a lot of email, you may get tired of answering it.

I have been keeping records, and my current view is that if the person is more than a year or two younger than I am, they will not respond, and may not even bother to look at my profile.

Married 47 years, 11 months 9 days. Widowed 1 year and 8 months. My thoughts are that nothing can prepare you for becoming "Suddenly single"

I am not a widow, but every time I see a thread on your situation, my heart aches. My mother died last year unexpectedly and I can only imagine what you all must have had to endure. I'm so glad you have Jesus to lean on. theheart rose
