I'm not fanatically religious - but I am a practicing Catholic. However, every contact wants me to call him by the 2nd message - and doesn't appear to have even read my profile.
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.

Also remember there are a lot of scammers out there that want your money..
I have had several contact me and they were overseas and needed me to send them cash which they would repay with their paycheck.. sure When I first started online dating, I did the "cautious emailing, then calling, then finally meeting" deal.
As far as how long to wait, until and if you're both ready to meet. It didn't work out romantically but we're best of friends and roommates now. if you are an adult you should realize that certain issues such as work are more important than texting you back the minute you receive a text.
I waited nearly two years before I met someone in person I met online and that was after talking on the phone nearly every day and emailing daily. I prefer to talk to someone on the phone after a few emails. Some ppl just want to meet and if they don't like what they see they don't want to waste their time to get to know you. If they don't respond for a couple of days then it is probably a sign that they are just 'not that in to you'. Go for coffee rather than a meal so if either of you want to make a quick get a way then it is easier over coffee.
It usually takes 1-2 phone calls for me to find out if I am interested in meeting that person in real life.
After a few months of this, I decided that quicker was better - since I discovered that no matter what I thought of the person, until I met them and could be face to face, I didn't know squat.
I could be incredibly attracted by their picture, their profile, the words they used in emails, even their voice and conversation, but more often than not, it all changed once face to face.
Yes, I met my husband that way and yes, we've been married over 10 years. Once, even a parking lot because the guy had met so many women who claimed to have only a few extra pounds, when in reality they lied big time both about their weight and their age.
Once he saw me, we did have coffee (or some beverage).. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum. Over ,000 in prizes has already been given out to active posters on our forum.
