Here's the reason for that comment: I speak to many wonderful women here who would make wonderful wives. Yet men are bypassing them for many reasons, many of which are superficial. Meanwhile many of the men admit bypassing women for what would be superficial reasons like looks, ages, etc even when they themselves aren't all that.

3:1 female to male ratio? As Dan may say, "---> yeah, baby!!!!"

That there is no devout Catholic never married man (i.e. someone like me) for me--to prove what my own life experience has already been telling me ("there is nobody for you"), what everyone has been telling me for years ("Are you crazy? There are no devout never married Catholic guys your age.") And after 10 years (to the month, my friends, happy CM anniversary to me!) I still have not found anyone who is my match.



In the social sciences I think 10 years of data gathering proves the point, what do y'all think?

Your post hit me because while I am younger than you, I don't live far from you and I am in the same situation. Lately I have been asking myself what if I don't meet anyone? Should I lower my standard or accept what it is? for me, I have accepted that I refuse to lower my standards and am ok being alone if it's what it is. Not happy about it, but being alone is preferable to marrying a man who isn't what I deem necessary (meaning childless and never married). Do you think you will have to lower your standards or face being alone, or do you feel you will find what you desire? I feel that if something is that important to them they will find it. I know many men who married later in life so have hope you will find one as well.

Dawn,


I would just like to point out to you, that by your stated criteria, someone who made a mistake and married someone in the Catholic Church, later got divorced and the Church recognized an annulment is not worthy of you, while someone who may have been highly promiscuous, but never married, is acceptable to you. This is what may be deferred by your definition if I am understanding it correctly.


If your definition is you want a male virgin at 40+, then that is certainly your perogative, though I have no idea how you prove or disprove it in this life.

Jeff, I joined Catholic Match because in the area where I live, even though it is only an hour from the capital city and 90 minutes from several college towns, Omaha, and Kansas City, there were really no ways to meet women who didn't reside in my home community area. Despite what my posts may indicate, I'm not a regular bar goer, and my most frequent bar/restaurant is a private golf club. I joined to meet a Catholic woman who would be the love of my life. I've belonged to other dating sites, but never really have met anyone that was a keeper, and there are a large volume of users there who aren't looking for a permanent relationship. I thought I'd find that on Catholic match. I've found many potential matches, and met a great variety of people, and had great conversations on the fora here.


I am hopeful and believe that God will lead me to that love, and that this is a tool He can use. I am not called to be a celibate, and so must be proactive in the search. . . "He who FINDS a wife (not waits around for one) finds a good thing indeed, and receives favor from the Lord."

Similar story to many here I guess, I have over the years as i've gotten older found it more and more difficult to find practicising Catholic friends. I dont really do that many retreats etc due to my working pattern. I have tried the whole internet dating thing in the past but thought this site would be the best fit as people have the same outlook for the most part. My only problem with it is that most people live far away from Ireland but I still pray that maybe "she" will see me here biggrin

I first joined Catholic Match back in 2007. I joined after trying some of the more mainstream dating sites and not being happy with some of the women I was matched with. I wanted to meet people with who a little more serious about their faith, although that I discovered that wasn't always the case with most of the people I've encountered on here.

I went out with a few girls on here, was a regular in the chat rooms when they first started, were a ton of interesting people in there, was an occasional poster to these forums (although I should post in here more often). I discovered that Catholic match is much more social than most of the other dating websites.

Eventually I found my girlfriend on here and we were together for two years. We recently broke up and I decided to re-join. I re-joined probably for the same reasons I joined the first time but also because I missed the interactions I had with people on here.
