Accept that dating online will involve some chasing.
If you find someone who catches your eye, send an icebreaker or a friendly email.
Also, I seem to only find men who mark off their religion as "other." What does that mean? Some of these men might just prefer to hear a voice, but they should be equally willing to get to know you a bit by exchanging messages/chatting online before arranging to meet.
I'm not fanatically religious - but I am a practicing Catholic. A quick google search turned up several dating sites/services specifically for Catholics. Probably stating the obvious/you are already aware of this but it's highly advisable to meet/have a date in a public place when you first meet someone.
When I first registered, the first messages I received came with the question of giving my phone number. Thanks for your responses If you have a cell phone, you can download a free app for a second phone line, or a "pinger." This is the number I give out to people I am chatting with. I like to message a bit, to see if there is enough in common to move forward.
Your email box is crammed with emails from admirers hoping to be the love of your life.
As you sift through them and read the profiles, your hopes are lifted.
You meet people from the "outside in", and if you have the opportunity to connect, you may get to know more about them.
In the virtual world, you meet people from the "inside out." Communications are in the form of email and instant messaging, and you may choose to exchange phone numbers, at which time you're able to assimilate a voice with the words you've exchanged.
