3. As robust a community as possible where our users have the maximium ability to meet people who could be a potential spouse 5. Tools that facilitate communication and intridcutions for the purpose of romantic as well as friendly realtionships. 6. A support community where singles can grow in their faith, find friendship and understand they are not alone. 7. Resources that assist our users and Catholics as large as living and understanding the single lifestyle better. If we do those seven things well enough then no matter if a person meets their spouse through CatholicMatch or not we feel like we have provided a service that made their life better and that we acted as a good companion while they are or were single. Again that is what makes our service different we do not just focus on matching people and dating or hooking up like the large secular sites we try to focus on how we can benefit the whole person because we simply don't know when or if they will meet Mr. or Mrs. right only God knows that.
We recognice that we can always improve in all these areas and we try to do that EVERY day. Some days are better than others but we do it with a small staff of 12 along with some independent writers and we try to provide a healthy working enviroment where our staff wants to work for us.
What happened to item number 4???
this is going to sound pretty negative but years ago when this site was still St. Raphael net, I did the percentage of marriages from the site and it was not good. I blame my obsession with facts on being an accountant and the daughter of an engineer. I do believe that God will put that right person in your way when the time is right. :)
For grins -- check out my member number
OMG!! I FNALLY FOUND A MEMBER NUMBER LOWER THAN MINE!!! Wait we need to celebrate!! well if it's any consolation, a lot of the members with lower numbers are starting to get married off!! my friend David 204 married and Michael 19?? also married...so who knows!! oh and i know a couple from SRN that married, went to their wedding, it was my first, and they are the proud parents of 4 kids!!
You are welcome for the poem, Its not mine but Dylan Thomas. "Go not Gentle". Great poet but miserable human being, a real rake and philanderer
I actively stay confident in myself and waiting for "Mr. Right" even if the dry spells are really, really frustrating. This time around I've been lucky to meet another very awesome guy, and to make a few friends. I also spend more time in the forums and blogs so it has been a richer personal experience too.
I went on 3 dates with 3 different girls on here and became friends with 2 of them, then I met a really beauiful woman on here who finally understands me and for that I'm grateful to CM so yes it is possible :-)
Kudos to you, Nicholas. Way to go. Ain't no flies on this boy.
I 'd like to put in my 2 pesos worth: I've never met anyone(in person) on this site, either. This is my 2nd shot at CatMat after a brief time last year. My prob is because I'm in Calif & I'm one of very conservatives left here! ( I don't play well with liberals!)
From what I've seen here, is that for me anyway, quality matches are out of state an they don't want long dist relationships! And also that I'm not a Holy-roller catholic, even though I went thru the whole route: baptism/1st Communion/ Confirmation & High School of Religion!
However, for the right lady I'd reconsider attending church once in a while. It beats the heck outa the anti-christian agenda of the muslims!
I humbly await your comments! (p.S. any conservative chicks from san Diego county, pls reply to my profile...Lol! )
