Tenth Day Of Christmas: David Bought A House, Awaits Work


We’re featuring David-364112 on the 10th day of Christmas.


What were the greatest blessings of 2010?

It’s been a rough year but I’m very grateful for the many blessings I have. After nine years in Chicago, I am now living in the same city as all my kids and my parents as well. I cashed out my 401(k) and bought a house. I have been unemployed or underemployed for the past 15 months but remain hopeful.


How has your approach to finding a mate evolved?

I stopped worrying and caring – all that did was cause distress. Now what had been very difficult has become natural and non-frightening.


What’s your CatholicMatch strategy?

The best people seem to be on the forums. It’s the only way to meet someone. Trawling profiles may work, but I find engaging with active members is the best way to meet a mate and find great friends.


Why do you stay on CatholicMatch?

It’s a wonderful community and a good value. Over the last nine years I’ve been on several dating sites and none was anywhere near as good as CatholicMatch.


What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?

Growing up in an Italian household, we always celebrated the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. The whole family got together and only seafood was served. We’d all go to midnight Mass after a very late supper.


What’s your hope for 2011?

I hope to find work and obtain my annulment. I hope my family remains happy and healthy.


Make a prediction for 2011.

Tammy-492301 will switch [her profile picture] from ketchup to Worcestershire sauce.

    So there he is — dry wit and all — among the 12 featured members. Keep doin’ what you’re doin’……

    His jokes are witty, and his comments show a theological balance often absent on here.
    Might we vouch for his qualifications to be an urban comic or to a See in a Great Plains state?

    CM should stake him a beer at the Billy Goat tavern under Michigan Ave, if not a 6 mo. membership pop. All the best for the New Year

    Congratulations, David! I have come to really enjoy your sharp wit and dry humor in the forums. Moreover, I’ve come to admire your tenacity and faith. Life is difficult, but you’ve hung in there, quietly and persistently. I’m praying for you to find work, along with a host of other people.

    God bless you and your 2011!

    I agree that Tammy’s pretty face is covered by that ketsup bottle! Bring on the salad dressing! David is an inspiration and has a wonderful sense of dry humor that he shares. I predict he will obtain his annulment soon and also God will bless him with the love of his life soon there-after! Happy 2011.
