Where I live, it's like Sodom & Gomorrah. The few gentlemen I do meet are looking to party, not marry and make a family. Also, as a single woman, I don't see myself moving somewhere else all alone in order to find a better "dating pool." I joined CM hoping to meet someone who shares my values and faith. We'll see what happens but in the meantime I work on myself, doing lots of self-improvement: Building my business, getting out of my house even if sometimes I'd rather stay home, exercising and maintaining a positive mindset so desperation doesn't lead me to get with the wrong person. It's tough but what's the other option? Crawl under the covers and stay lonely? Nope. So onward Christian soldiers!
God bless everyone on their search for love.
Well good luck. I was once convinced of that as well.
I don't have problems meeting women, it's the right kind that I have problems with But being on a Catholic site for (just about) like minded Catholics still doesn't make it any easier, but the illusion is there that it's easier.
I'm happy being single forever, if it's what God wants. Though it would be a bummer because I love kids and want plenty of them (please God). Speaking for myself, it's probably more likely I'll find someone in real life. But I gave the good Lord this option just in case.
