It makes for a very good read and gives good insight.
For me, I can see all sides of the frustration from people. First, if I was divorced, I would never be on a dating site and claim to be a practicing Catholic.
This is just one example (maybe not at your age) but of the older age ranges on the system. It's ok to be friends, but you must admit, it's a little deceiving to be on a "dating" site and have the goal of being "just friends."
My understanding, is Catholic Match, (hence match) implies a marriage minded expectation in meeting people.
I mean, I don't see advertisements on the system depicting "friends who met" holding hands. Of course not, you see pics and advertisements of married couples with themes of, "Finding the right person", or "Find a fresh chance at love."
Persistence is key. In my area, there are just NO single catholics my age. Plenty of divorced, non practicing, for many reasons, but no one I would call a match due to varied reasons.
I will Aly, that you find God's will, peace, Thomas.
