I had a long list of requirements and they make me laugh now. Not long ago in fact I found the list and some of the things just seem weird to me now, like must be at least 6 foot tall, have dark thick hair, not balding, must have a "cool" job (meaning no blue collar workers)and so many more requirements. Now none of that matters at all but had I been realistic in my 20s I might be married now.

Dawn, we are very similar. Your list sounded like a quote of mine and it no longer matters to me either. I wasted so much time being insecure & afraid in my 20's & 30's that I missed out on LIVING life. It hurts & depresses me, but I can't get those years back. I just need to move forward as the person I am today and hope that God at least has marriage in his plan for me.

It was ten years ago when I found CM from an ad in the church bulletin. It took me about six months to get on the forums due to afraid of saying something wrong and not blending in. Guess what? that did happen. Although there were fireworks going off all the time from responses I'd receive from my non catholic ideals, liberal views I did make some really good friends from here. I met a dozen men and women from here while organizing an event and have kept in contact with half a dozen by telephone with only meeting three men for dating.


When I rejoined six months ago, I didn't have time to get on here so I wasted 4 months of that membership. Now that it's the summer and I'm off from work I can spend time here and enjoy the members posts and get to know them better.
It gets lonely around here without some kind of companionship, that's why I rejoined CM.

Being a virgin isn't a big deal with me. Actually in both of those scenarios I wouldn't like either guy. I prefer a never married guy who may or may not be a virgin but didn't sleep around either.

One of my past boyfriends was a extremely timid 35 yr. old virgin man. why he chose to date me was and still is beyond me. He liked me a lot apparently. I was a divorced woman with a small child (who he never met, her choice), who was always afraid to kiss me at the door when saying goodnight after a date. One time he told me he was hurt by a woman he dated who also had a child. he had some real hangups after he broke off that relationship. I think he got mixed up on his priorities. He suggested marriage to me once but I threw that out the window after a month of dating. we dated for a good year. When I see him around town he's always polite toward me and to top that off two years ago he took me out to dinner to watch fireworks at the casino. He always has this grin on his face, sort of like makes me think he's wondering what I'm thinking. If it wasn't for his always having to talk so much and not let me get a word in edgewise we would still be dating. Oh and he always brought me roses but soon it got to be too much on that too. It's like he didn't know when to quit. My friend Carmel just called to tell me she saw Sean before the 4th. I didn't want to go out with him again so did something else.

The most important detail of our breakup was he told me I was too old for him. Gosh, I was only 5 yrs. older than him. He wanted to find a younger woman to date. He's still looking! that same comment was told to me by my exboyfriend of 7 yrs. He's still looking!!!

I joined in hope of finding someone with the same values, morals, and beliefs as i do. Since I Don't do the bar and club scene I was hoping to have more luck here. I also wanted to find someone who shares the same love for my religion and God as me. I also want someone who will understand why I am who i am and why certain things are important for me. Marriage is the most scared thing beside my relationship with God and My family.

Maybe im a lost romantic but those are a few reasons why I joined.

Me too and I also wasted time on men not worthy. I waited around for the perfect guys or dated them and they weren't perfect.

Honestly I joined because my best friend got engaged and I figured it's time for me to get someone in my life. I am Catholic, but my boyfriend/future husband doesn't have to be Catholic; it would preferable if they were, but it's not mandatory.


Honestly, I haven't had the best experience on this site when it comes to the men [I'm a 5 out of 7 girl and therefore will go to hell], however I've made some awesome friends!

Well, as long as you guys promise not to laugh...


I joined because I go to an engineering school actually. Now, for those who don't know what that means, it means that the ratio of guys to girls was 3:1. And because of this, and also of the fact that only about 15% of those women were Catholic, it meant that most of the women would get very picky, and I got tired of trying to make even a slight advance, then would get essentially ignored :/ But in any case, I just joined this site, so I don't know if the same holds true, but I sure hope not!

Welcome Stefan! Engineers came up not too long ago. I can't argue the numbers, as I am the only one left across there engineering programs at my current school. The women can be choosier under the circumstances, but here is the other part. I don't know any female engineers who don't marry other engineers. It just works out that way. Stick to your guns. The right one will come along for you. You've made a great start coming to a Catholic dating site!

Well said Mary, except I am changing the word "might" to "am"......


To find a Catholic mate with whom I am equally yoked (with).


And to find a Catholic community beyond Church.
