Justin & Kelsie
It is our pleasure and excitement to introduce ourselves as the soon-to-be family of Kelsie Willis Raddatz and Justin Raddatz. We were brought together by God, but were introduced by Catholic Match in June 2009. We are very fortunate to have found our true and uncompromising partner, and would like to thank the Catholic Match team for providing the environment that brought us together.
After Kelsie and I each ended unfulfilling long-term relationships in March 2009, we found our way to Catholic Match in June. We each are committed to a life of service to God, and knew that we wanted to find a partner that would grow in this journey with us. Catholic Match provided us with the communities to find like-minded and like-hearted people. After several emails, Kelsie and I had our first date. Only hours into this date, we knew that we had just begun an amazing and, possibly, endless connection.
We pledged our timeless connection to each other when we were engaged on New Year’s Eve 2009. Every day with each other is a blessing, and we are having an amazing time preparing for our September 4, 2010 wedding date at St. John’s Catholic Church in Loveland, Colorado. We are forever indebted to your help in bringing us together. We wish you the best in introducing other blessed connections around the world. Thank you and God bless!
Gary & Mary Ann
Our first contact was December 28, 2004. Mary had posted an ad, and I responded to it; I told Mary to check out my ad and e-mail me back if she was interested in me. Needless to say, there was mutual interest. We began "instant messaging" on CatholicMatch.com, but Mary needed to log off the computer – so I bravely asked her if she wanted to continue the conversation on the phone. Mary gave me her number and I called her. Before we knew it, we had been on the phone for 6 hours. Luckily, neither one of us had to work the next day.
After several more phone conversations, we decided to meet on January 1, 20005 at Universal Studios (Orlando) City Walk. We had dinner and drinks at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Our first date lasted into the small hours of the morning because we were talking and enjoying each other's company. I walked Mary to her car, where we sat and talked for a while longer. We kissed good night and both went home.
We dated for nearly a year, and on December 28, 2005 (the anniversary of out first contact), I got down on one knee and proposed to Mary during a lunch visit to Margaritaville. Being traditional, I got her father's permission before proposing.
We honeymooned in Hawaii. Since then, we have purchased a house in February 2007 and celebrated the birth of our son in February 2008. We are expecting our second child in November. God is awesome!
Matthew & Leah
We first started talking and e-mailing each other in late August of
2009. We then had our first date at a local Starbucks on September 2.
From there on, it has been a fairy tale. Each of us knew there was
something different, a different feeling that we had never felt before.
We started dating soon after and spent as much time together as we
could. We went on many dates, including Cleveland Indians games and out
to dinner. However, some of our favorite dates included going to Mass
and also spending time at Adoration together.
From the first time we met, we understood each other perfectly,
and knew that God had created us to be together forever. About 10
months later, we were engaged! Both of our families are thrilled and we
are very excited to spend the rest of our lives together. We thank
Catholic Match for bringing us together!
Richard & Emmie
I felt that my calling from God was to get married and have a big family. For the longest time I tried meeting someone, but was unsuccessful. Finally I met someone on Catholic Match that was perfect for me. It didn't take very long for us to meet once we made contact on Catholic Match. We were, and still are very busy people so it was hard for us to meet up and have dates. I think it was about 3 weeks in between each date. We had four or five dates before we got together as a couple. It did not take very long for both of us to understand that this was a gift from God. We got engaged on December 1st, 2009, just about four or five months into our relationship. Currently our wedding date is August 14th, 2010 and we plan to get married in the Catholic Church. I will be separating from the Navy March 12th, 2010 and going to school full time starting April of this year. Emmie will be graduating as a Nurse from Whatcom Community College in June of this year. God has truly blessed us and I think we will have an amazing life together.
Brian & Nicole
My wife and I met on Catholic Match. It was an interesting experience
for both of us. I considered myself to not be much of a computer guy at
the time. It all started out with an emoticon and a nice comment. It
was like well they are nice but we live really for apart. Before you
knew it we talk for hours and hours on the phone…it seems like time
just flew by. A few months later she met me and my parents in my
hometown. Within a year she moved to be with me. We got engaged and a
year later we married. Our relationship has truly been a blessing to
use both! I believe because of our close relationship and deep faith is
the reason why we have made it through several untimely deaths of
family members recently. Thanks again and God Bless!
Amy & Steve
Just wanted to thank Catholic Match for helping me find my one true love. We are set to be married October 2010. Without you I never would have met my husband to be. We met 4 1/2 years ago on your site. God led me to Catholic Match and Catholic Match led me to Steve. The rest is history. I can't thank you enough.
Karl & Rachel
Our profiles randomly connected via the site. After a couple messages and a fun chat via the site we decided that we had TOO much in common to not meet for a date. A couple days later we met at a coffee shop and we instantly clicked. Our coffee date turned into nine hours of chatting, strolling the streets of Madison, browsing used book stores, having dinner, and going to Mass. Thanks Catholic Match!
Tonja & Chris
God answered my prayers on Catholic Match. I have met a wonderful man, and I look forward to beginning a wonderful journey with him. I'm so happy and blessed. Thank you, Catholic Match!!
I'm not the 'how you doing babe?' type of guy. I'm a little reserved
and modest. I've never been able to meet a girl unless she went
overboard in expressing her interest, and those girls usually turned
out to be the type of girls that weren't in it for the long term. What
was it Billy Joel wrote: "Nice girls won't tell you what you should
do." My uncle informed me of Catholic Match, and after a couple
attempts I found the person I've been looking for all along. We haven't
been dating too long, but I believe she is the nice, Catholic girl my
uncle told me I might meet on CatholicMatch.com. Thank you Catholic
Match for living up to the expectations my uncle pitched me on.
