With God, ALL things are possible.
Jesus, I trust in You.
You look like a lovely lady with lots to give. Persistence, patience and prayer.
Wishing you all the best in the search for your" special one"
P.S. I am marrying my CM beau in exactly one month. (living proof that there is hope!) :
Yes, I do think it is possible. All it takes is time, patience and prayer.
It is all about forming relationships. Relationships are built on shared values, but it does not happen overnight. Frequent contacts with a special someone do not lead to a relationship alone. A relationship with a special someone is built over time. It is all about building trust and leading with our values and morals.
Yes, I think it's possible. But success, in the long run takes maturity, emotional stability, care and discernment.
I just recently watched as an acquaintance made a disastrous decision too quickly with an on-line relationship. They got married within twelve hours of their first face-to-face - it was a very bad decision by BOTH parties, and will take years to untangle.
It all depends on the people involved.
For my part I'm here because I can afford to give this long shot a chance.. but I understand it's a long shot. As I currently work from Oh-Dark-Thirty to You-Still-Here? in a fairly rural environment, I don't have many real world opportunities right now.
That sounds familiar. While I work similar hours, in an urban setting, I still try to put myself out, in the open at least once a week. I keep getting told, that "She will appear". While I got close once, I sometimes wonder if there is someone for me. This way is a longshot. Somedays I do wonder if it is worth the effort.
Congratulations Joan! So happy for you and your lucky fiance.
I guess that I just have not met anyone who has met and married through a Catholic dating service
Thank you for your kind words, Rita!
It certainly does happen here on CM. Please take a look at the forum "Wedding and Marriage Prep" and check out Donna's "Updated engaged and married list". It is quite long and it is only a partial list of all the CM couple who have found their mate here.
Wishing you all the best in finding your special match!
