Laura Pearl, author of the book Finding Grace is a Catholic mom who loves CatholicMatch.com. She recently shared this story with us:
"Our oldest son met his wife on CatholicMatch.com (read the member story here). They are absolutely perfect for each other, and now they have children of their own. This son has four younger brothers who used to say, "I'll never try online dating," but two of them have met this past year on CatholicMatch. When our son called to tell us he'd met someone, he joked, "I went on the family website."
The thing that's so wonderful about meeting someone on CatholicMatch is that right off the bat, you know you're dealing with people whose faith is important to them. But you can also pre-screen potential dates to find people who really share the same beliefs that you have. When our firstborn first told us he'd met a girl online, my husband and I were slightly apprehensive. But now, we see CatholicMatch as a great tool for fixing up like-minded young people."CatholicMatch.com when he was 24. When we first heard about that, we were a little unsettled. Online dating?! It seemed like a strange way to meet someone, and not all that safe either. But our son told us that before you even start thinking about contacting someone you meet on the site, you can check and see how they answered 7 important questions concerning their adherence to the beliefs of the Catholic Faith. ... Lo and behold, in November of 2007 he "met" a sweet Midwesterner, a darling 7 out of 7, and they began talking on-line and then on the phone. "
