I guess having to say good-bye to my kids and grandkids,if I find the right man it will hurt me very much.I know God will love me just like them.It is still hard for me to think and won't been there when they need me.I do think life is too short,so tell them how much you love them.

I would like to see more single events for people over 50. After all we are the majority. Match is good, but going out and meeting someone is great. I would like to see the Church sponser something. i use to be on Match.com and there were many atheists and agnostics.....not for me

"I have found that when you are younger and single or having been divorced and single - then being single isn't a big concern. When I was younger and single I felt like I had all the time in the world - I don't feel that way anymore. I feel that the parade has passed me by. Many divorced singles seem ok with being single now because they have been married and have had their children - something in them has been fulfilled." Donna
I have to totally agree with the above statement. I see, everyday, my friends who are married and with children. I'm 39 and have never had children, and at times it's very difficult to keep the faith that God has His perfect plan for me. It does seem that life passes you by so quickly, and I often wonder if I was oblivious to things that God may have been saying to me, resulting in lost opportunities.

It really bothers me to see people who have children, just so they could collect money for them and they walk around with fancy cell phones and gadgets while their children are unbathed and sad. There are so many people out there who want to have children and are good natured and so caring. Then so many who are unfit for parenthood get away with it all and child abuse. How cruel can one be to neglect their own children and abuse them? It's very saddening. These are things that cry out to Heaven for justifiable vengeance. May God help the helpless children in the world.

Morons professing to be Catholics yet before they would risk their popularity by standing and speaking out against torture and murder through abortion on all fronts. Another thing I abhor is the fool that believes he or she was Baptized Catholic, you canot be Baptized Catholic you have to live it..

I voted for family. I guess it isn't really a concern because I believe that worrying is counter productive but I believe that family is most important behind God. I recently met a woman that was going through several trials and she said that without her family she would be lost. The support that you can receive from family and friends is invaluable.

I worry all the time about financial security. If you are married, you get a lot of advantages that single people do not. Namely, companies view you as firmly planted - I think that is horrible. Just because someone is single, doesn't mean they cannot focus or be driven to do well in their jobs. It's a total double standard, and frankly, I'm sick of it.

I believe that all people have the right to health care. As a nurse, I have seen one major illness strip patients of the homes and bank accounts. I have seen patients give up on life simply because living is no longer affordable. Others are concerned with their illness completely depleting all of their financial resources, possibly leaving those left behind with no resources to survive. There needs to be a solution! As Catholics, we believe that all babies in the womb have the right to life. Yet, we don't believe in availing them with the resources to survive outside of the womb. There are children dying needlessly because their parents can't even afford to feed and clothe them and give them proper health care.

Friends, since my family is grown and very busy and I always had a group of friends to do things with and to talk to. My last years as a widow and devotion to my ailing husband have deprived me of freedom to get out more and leave him alone too long. h

with my father recentlly having had a stroke,i understand now how important it is for families to be together during a crisis.it isn't good for each other or the one who is sick to be at odds. and this is the time that praying together is a must.my dad is now in a nursing home,a decision i trully was against butfor the sake of my mother's own health had to be done. still the family should always stand together.let the parents know they are trully loved and needed.

Abortion and child abuse are the most horriffic crimes in our country and I feel until these are done away with, we will never be a peace. I myself worked in both areas as a volunteer. CASA Court Appointed Special Advocate is all over the country and it only takes 12- 15 hours a month to help a family that has been abused and most rewarding.
In addition to what we all do to stand against Abortion, I have placed a multitude of bumper magnets on my car.
Example of what they say: Trust in God, A child is a gift, not a choice, 1800 number to call for assistance and Smile your mother chose life. There are many others to chose from: Cost $5 each at Prolifebumper.com God bless you

I have a secure job, so finances are not my worry. Although I am not rich, I do not have money worries and although I have not children, I do have close ties to my family, brother sister, nieces and nephews. I do miss not having a steady guy to do things with. I am invited to a few charity functions a year, and it would be nice to have an escort.

I myself would like to find my soul mate,but like others have said it just does not seem to be in the cards,if it happens it happens. I was thrown into not being able to work do to some doctors who really did a poor job doing surgery on my back. so I feel as if you do not have your health your out of luck for anything.people read disability and they want nothing to do with you.you cannot work and now days people are obsessed with the power of money.they do not look past the disability.I have alot of love to give and i believe in one partner only.so i feel health is a big issue.

The question doesn't say EVERYONE is concerned about being single. But since this is a singles website we were concerned a large number of people would pick that and we wanted to see what "other" things singles were concerned about. Just looking through the forums lets you see that a good number are concerned. Remember folks these are just fun polls that provide a little insight into what singles are thinking about a variety of issues they should not be considered ALL encompassing.

Once again... it is not about priorities it is about things that concern you. As in they are not going well. Given that this is a Catholic site it is a given that spirituality/faith is important aspect for most people on the site. This poll is to find out what people are worried about, what concerns them outside of being single. Yes there could be other items we just happen to chose the ones listed.

The question says "concerns you" though, which I took to indicate which is most worrisome at the moment....while of the above, family definitely comes first, they are last on my "worrisome" list! So I think that's why finances is currently leading with 27.7% of the votes!
