RE: your choice to change your status to "Friendship Only"

You did appear so troubled and anxious by what you seemed to believe was "misleading" and I hope that this decision will bring you peace.

RE: can we really meet more than one 'one and only' in our lifetime?

Perhaps it is now I who am the dreamer but I believe that we can. If it is God's plan for me to have the vocation to the married life, I choose to believe that He would not be so cruel as to send only one possibility. What if that 'only one' with my so-called name on him does not hear the word that God is speaking to them? After all that other person also has free will and twists and turns in their life that may keep them from being my 'one and only' intended. That would leave me alone without a spouse forever. That would not fulfill His plan for me. Or what if because I have chosen not to seek an annulment for so many years someone else's vocation to the married life has not taken place because I wasn't listening. I don't pretend to know the mind of God but I do believe that He has 'back-up plans' built in to His creations.

Well ,I guess you could put the question to your Priest and hear his advice as to whether it is alright
by God to be here.Everybody is different in how they handle temptations .Before my Annulment came about, I kept in mind for eight years that I was still Married and that it was wrong to look around.Mortal sin is a serious thing.I had to be prepared to live out my life as "separated".
To me it feels wrong to be open to meeting "the one" while still married-even if you are in the process.
I'm sure God will provide "the one" in His time AFTER (not yelling:) ) the Annulment is granted. scratchchin

There is room here for everyone..Many of us came here without annulments and used our time and experiences and the support of others to get it done.

(quote) Bohdan-989259 said: I'm just beginnig the annulment proceedings. On the forums I came across opinions, that we should not open our hearts to someone who doesn' have one. It may result in bitter dissapointment if two peopple find themslves attracted to each other, but one of them is refused the Annulment by the Church.

I find such statement very true. I don't want to fall in love, and experience the dissapointment of not being granted the annulment. I don't want to create false hopes for any woman that would consider me as potential husband (if that is possible, that is).

Does it really make any sense for someone like me to be a participant on Catholic dating site?





A dating site? Or Catholic Match?

There are many people in situations similar to yours who use the site as a source of fellowship with other Catholics and to learn more about the Faith. The owners envisioned this as they developed the site and encourage it; the site rules explicitly allow for such use.
