I wish that I could say that the dates that I have had as a result of CM have been a really positive experience but they have not been. The women seem very jaded, angry and they have not been unlike women on secular sites. I have been surprised even the women who claim that they hold to all the tenets of the Catholic faith don't seem to live it. For example, the use of profanity and the disregard of abstention of pre-marital sex.

Went on a date and one women did nothing but talk all night about her past "abusive relationships." That is not any different then the women I have met either at work or on secular dating sites. She asked me if I was adhering to the "no sex before marriage" and I told her by God's grace that I was and had not fallen." She laughed and said that she has not been able to adhere to that.


Why do people say they believe everything when they obviously don't or think it's a big joke?


I wish my experience was more positive up to this point. Maybe I'm dating the wrong personality types.

I'm sorry to hear about your experiences. All I can say is that from talking in the women's forum, I know there are plenty of good Catholic women on CM. Just keep looking and praying!!

I'm SO sorry, Keith, that you have had this experience. Like the other ladies said, there ARE those of us out there who DO adhere to the tenets of the Church. Just keep praying for God to send you the right one, and I will pray for you likewise! :)

I'm sorry for your experience. I join the other women in encouraging you not to give up. Unfortunately people are at times deceitful in their profile but not all. I just don't think it has anything to with "personality types"...it has a lot to do with liars and deceivers so I wouldn't focus on that (personality types).

Don't lose heart Keith. I believe there are many strong Catholic women on this site, and I personally will not go back to the secular sites. Keep praying! Praying

Keith, i know you're not generalizing all the Women here on CM, and having a few bad dates can understandably make a person question whether people are who they say they are. However keep in mind also that airing your "date conversations" in a public forum could have a negative affect on who you may contact in the future? just a thought scratchchin Praying
