Well, for starters, I am Catholic. ;) That's one reason why. Second, I have a friend who met her husband on here a few years ago and they are now married with a son. They're not only hopelessly, helplessly in love with each other but they are each other's best friends. And she told me that I should try this site out so I did.
I've been off-and-on Catholic Match for the last two years. I've communicated with a few women. I have yet to meet anyone face-to-face although I did come close to meeting someone in New York last year. It didn't work out because she got cold feet and there were other issues going on in her life which caused the meeting to be postponed. Ultimately, the meeting never happened because she had a change of heart. I really wanted to go, too. So, as you can imagine, it was quite disappointing not to get to meet her after weeks of communication on the phone and through email.
I don't know why it is, but where I live in South Carolina is not a state where a lot of women are from on Catholic Match. South Carolina mostly has Baptists, but there are some Catholics and for some reason there aren't many of them on this site. My problem is that I'm now in this inconvenient age bracket. I'm 39 and I'll be 40. I'm too young for the older women and too old for the younger women. So, I'm kind of stuck, you know what I mean? I mean, unless I win the lottery, become famous or get elected to political office. ;-)
I've dated non-Catholic women and that's never been a problem for me. It's just that over time I decided that I want to marry a woman who shares Catholic values as I do. And we can then raise a child or children to be Catholic. And I know that some women aren't going to like me saying this, but I want to have at least one child with a woman. I don't mind if she's already got a child or children from a previous relationship. I just want us to have at least one child together. And I'd rather be honest from the get-go than to lead someone on and have them believing something that isn't true or real. If you don't want to have any more kids, fine. I accept that. Then I'm not your man. But I do want to have kids. And, believe me, I sure wish that I would have been married and had children sooner. But it wasn't always my fault or up to me. I got a late start in life and love because I was very shy when I was younger and didn't date much. I also concetrated on my work a lot more than relationships when I was younger. And I thought I had found my soulmate three years ago. She was someone that I would have married had things progressed in the relationship. But it wasn't meant to be.
So, that's why I joined Catholic Match. And I'm trying really hard to get my money's worth on here. :)
Hmmm why did i join CM? Ok i joined CM to meet some one nice maybe that one special person, since i have been to secular site and all that the men want is talk sex and have sex. So i got tired of that. I was reading an advert in my parish about singles meeting, copy the site address, found out i copy the wrong address, so i started stuffing the net came across CM, that was last year dec, met lot of nice guys here, but met one particular guy, we kind of click right from start. we exchange email address and graudate to skype, for the pass nine month things have being going great, he said he love me started talking about marriage at first i was not buying into that but he told me that he truly love me, he is from croatia. He create a blog for me where he writes poems for me. but all of a sudden early this month he started behaving strangely, he remove me from his contact on skype block me from able to veiw the blog, remove his contact from facebook, it was like he disappear from the face of the earth. 2 weeks later he asked his sister to contact me, which she did and told me he was in the hospital that he had a mental breakdown, when we were able to talk he told me that he no longer believe in God, I tried to let him see that there is no reason for him to say that there is no God, after we finished talking he said that he will try and go for Mass and confession. so when we met the following he just told me that he is in love with someone else that he just me the lady. hmmmm this is where got interesting, I asked him if he was joking or serious he said that he is serious, so i logged out of skype for just am momoent for him not to see me crying, and when i logged in back he had remove me from his contact. i have never felt this hurt in my life. so I asked myself why did i join CM?
