Kristy had her doubts about online dating when she came to Catholic Match, but her Valentine’s Day movie night for single friends seemed to becoming an annual event she could do without. It was frustration, as much as anything that led her to give CatholicMatch a chance.
There are few cures for frustration better than laughter and that’s what she found in Brendan. It started when she had first read his profile—his sense of humor came through so clearly that she laughed—in a good way—all the way through it. It took six weeks of e-mailing for them to set up a date for a Bruce Springsteen concert. So thorough was their connection to each other that when they met beforehand they talked so much they missed the concert’s first hour. They went on to spend their weekends looking through various museums, cathedrals and parks in New York City, where Kristy lived and worked. Eight months after they first found each other on CatholicMatch, Brendan took her to the shadow of their favorite bridge and asked Kristy to marry him. She said yes—“We look forward to many more adventures together and I’ve never been happier…!”
Kristy and Brendan aren’t the only ones. Three other couples wrote to CatholicMatch with short versions of their own success…
*Sandra & Robert had never tried online dating and found CatholicMatch. “We think this is a great and very reliable website”, Sandra wrote. “My husband and I are together because of God’s will and we are very grateful CatholicMatch was a medium to make this happen.”
*Suzanne and Joseph experienced the phenomena of love at first sight. “We are both young at heart and cannot wait to start our life together”, she wrote. They are planning to marry in Sandra’s hometown and they thank God for bringing them together.
*Lisa & Steve’s CatholicMatch experience worked in perfect rhythm. They joined about the same time and instantly found each other. Lisa told CatholicMatch they are now engaged and plan to marry in the summer of 2011.
