Tried Christian Mingle just now, and there's not even an option to search for people by their current religious affiliation. Every woman I found that was raised Catholic in my area is currently non-denominational (ironically, the largest denomination in online dating ^_^) or Protestant. CatholicMatch is set up the best for Catholic dating (especially by asking members what they specifically believe in), they just need to advertise A LOT more to get more people in here.

Yes I joined a couple of days ago. This site was free I think a few years ago. I gave up on that when by far the most enquiries I got were from a 1000s miles away. I came back to see if things have changed and hoped there's be more local people. I was shocked to discover the subscription charges.

I have been on more than one Catholic dating site, thinking maybe since I am also Catholic, I would meet someone who was really honest and really meant what they say. I never write first but I have had a few who have written but after sounding so real and saying they hope to hear back and I did respond, then they don't have the decency to at least say that they don't intend to write anymore. I don't need to pay money out to meet someone like that on a website. There are plenty of those on the outside. About 4 yrs ago, a man and I were messaging and it wasn't long that I found out that he was on another catholic site with an entirely different profile. I realized it and let him know and that was the end of that. I do agree with most people and do not think that these sites should be charging nearly the amount of money that they do. I thought these sites were to help us meet catholics even tho I'm sure many of them are not. At present time, I'm a member on only one site and will probably discontinue it in the near future since I had what I thought was a good friendship and thought we were going to at least meet for lunch in the near future, now he quit writing. Have no idea why but it is hurtful. It's too bad that there isn't a way to screen everyone who joins these sites to see if they are really on there for the right reason or just to play around.

I have tried Match and Zoosk - creepy looking mugshots, especially on Zoosk. I tried eHarmony for 3 months- not many matches, like with this site. I have been on Catholic Match for almost a year, and nothing yet. Online 'dating' is overrated and overpriced.

I like Match.com and eHarmony, as they offer also international matching. One of my sisters found her "match" on Match.com, in Spain. They corresponded, then he traveled to America and she traveled to Spain, they fell in love with each other, got married and no live in the wonderful island of Tenerife, in Spain are are very happy.

Yes, many views and few emails, Men from 1000+ miles away. Not as many guys active to email as there are profiles. Very disappointed. Who is the guy and gal walking down the aisle as the advertizement goes? Where did they meet? Here? And they auto-enrolled me - didnt see that on the page to sign up - just disabled it. I would not recommend this site at all. Overpriced for what you get.

If you don't get a response,they may not be rude or ignoring you. It may simply be because they can't. They are just here as free members. Unfortunately too many profiles belong to these non-paid members (I'm one of those right now!). Too bad there's no way to tell. That's the frustrating part. It's the same problem on all the other paying sites as well.
One of the few matches in my area posted that she found someone on CM and was engaged. Their wedding date was scheduled for 2010! That's how old her profile was. At least it was nice that she went back edited her profile to let people know.
Christian Mingle is nice but the only Catholics there are ones that have fallen to Protestantism.
Ok Cupid is great because you can read people's answers to the many questions. And it's free.
Match may be the best bet because of the shear volume of people.
Don't care for eH or Chemistry. No matches. Like CM.
I like Our Time. People interact more. Maybe because we're all "old" and are running out of time. haha

I've met the most people from OkCupid and Plenty of Fish. There is a serious lack of members, especially younger ones on here and I wish I had known that before I paid for it. I met one guy from CM and he was by far the creepiest and ignored me after our first date. Such a kind "Catholic" man... I will not be paying for this site again once my subscription is done...until i'm in my late 30s. No one here for me.

I'm more comfortable on CM because right off the bat I know that at least I have faith in common with any potential match. It gives me s starting point for searches and discussions. I have tried It's just lunch in the past and each time was traumatised after the one date.

Each one has their own drawbacks and their own positive points , comparing each other is like comparing mangoes , oranges and bananas with brinjal . It's the people that make the difference , that's what determines what is successful or not . I met few serious minded people on eh and match . When it comes to meeting both of them were good , the women there never wasted any time in endless emails or the devine sign . Few women that I communicated here are angry that I love my career , as according to them I should only love god and nothing else , not even my future children . So if the comparison is between members , I found more sensible women there , but in the matters of site administration cm has done good job .

@Mary I am sorry you have not had the results you were hoping for however I did take a quick look at your account and I think there are some things you can do to improve your opportunities. It looks as if you have had some responses, it is just a matter of getting the right response from the right person and that can sometimes take more time than we would like. I am going to have one of our Customer Service people reach out to you.

I reached out a number of times to people on CM, and never got a response, except for one person on a platonic level bc we knew the same organization. One person even BLOCKED me! A lot of people looked at me, but never wrote or anything. Waste of time and money.
