You nailed it right on the head. To come to a Catholic site and find people going against what the Church teaches is discouraging. For instance, there are some who think it's ok to vote for pro-choice cadidates.

Beautiful quote, Rachel! I for one am strongly devout. When a "potential" match (whatever that really means by CM) pops up, I'll look at their profile, and the first thing is, if they are not 7/7, then "X" marks the spot. I won't even read much more. Does that make me a bad person? Or does that just mean that I KNOW that God is looking out for me and knows that I wouldn't be properly matched with someone who doesn't share the faith. (I think the latter is true.)

Yes, Duane -- isn't that why we are on CM instead of another site? Not bad, just discerning.

Hi Greg! I respectully disagree with your post or what I think is the essence of it. I do not believe that I am here to waste anyone's time, least of all my own. I believe there's a place for all of us in the world - no matter where we are in our life's journey or on the road of Catholicism. I hope that we have all come to CM to meet and have a relationship with fellow Catholics. With that said, everyone is different, and we are entitled to our preferences - whether they be in our own personal beliefs or in the characteristics of another person. Not to mention, we are all imperfect children of God. And I have seen plenty of profiles of people who seem to be very serious about their faith. Hopefully, this will allow each of us to connect with our perfect "CatholicMatch," thus allowing God to work in the individual and/or the relationship as He sees fit. This is just a thought from a newbie to the site who was hoping to find a community. Chelle

I have noticed the contrary.

Hmm I guess there is no room at the Inn this time of year for people who might be searching for other people romantic or otherwise who are stronger in their faith. Or maybe they recently decided to start taking their faith more seriously and they are just being honest about how things have been in their life. I would like to think that honesty counts for something especially when it would be much easier to deceive.

I can totally understand your desire to talk about faith related subjects. But, one thing I really like about this site - I think Meg said it well - is that I have made many friends, both women and men. The benefit to this site is that we can make friends from all over the country and all walks of life who share a common perspective on life. So, while many of our discussions may not be specifically ABOUT the faith, they are discussions that are coming FROM the faith ABOut life. That is quite unique and rather special!

And there are CM forum sections for doctrine, apologetics, etc.

... and the nice thing about having the x/7 section, and sections that people can add in whatever they want to ... means you can use the free will that God gave to you in an informed way as you navigate this website. To me that's a pretty good thing, actually...

Greg, I must say I agree with Meg. There are so many reasons to join this site. I am not yet annulled, but I love that this site is accepting of me and allows me to participate in the forums. I gain a whole lot from other people's perspectives and, even more importantly, I am finding ways to help others through involvement on the forums. It makes me happiest to try to help, rather than being a wet blanket all the time. :-) -All- the time... laughing

I am growing in my faith walk by helping others and by listening to others here.


There are "poofers" on the site, but I don't think there are any more here than any other site... particularly the secular sites. As a matter of fact, I think there are fewer of those types here and more of the DEFINITELY ELIGIBLE types of ladies who would make fantastic life's mates. We all have so many different faith journeys and are coming from such different directions... Some are commitment-minded, others are not.


I am trying to undersand our Lord's timing as I seek (eventual) marriage, and am trying to be patient. Take your time, be active in these forums, browse the ladies, and pursue development of your faith through the wonderful members on this site.

And... be active seeking ladies in your church and in your daily life.


Michael
