Small-Town Girl Runs To ’80s Music


Maria-662227 is a small-town girl with a big heart, earning her master’s in communicative disorders while working as a therapist for autistic children.

To unwind Maria loves to run, enjoying ’80s tunes on her iPod shuffle. “It allows me to let go of everything in my life and just think freely,” she wrote in her profile intro. “It also grants me time to pray and talk to God.”

The 25-year-old from Little Chute, Wis., has completed two half marathons. She is down to earth but has developed some urban taste, like Thai food and sushi. She likes to watch football and HGTV, especially “House Hunters.” The devout Catholic has a tattoo of a cross on her upper back.

Maria joined CatholicMatch in June. It’s the only dating site she has ever used – and she sees no reason to look elsewhere.

“I have gotten nothing but positives responses from guys on CatholicMatch,” Maria reports. “I’m meeting so many wonderful and intriguing men. I have had instant conversations and messages that led to dates. I have met a few men and enjoyed the many opportunities that have thus far been presented to me. Not all have turned into dates, but instant friendship is just as important. I think it’s great that I can talk to these guys about religion and have in-depth, insightful conversations about our Lord. Even if I nothing else comes from this, it was definitely worth it because of the conversations and friendships that have been sparked since joining.”

That report captures Maria’s positive, faith-based outlook on life.

“I trust in the Lord that he leads me and guides me to the places that I need to be and the people I need to encounter to shape me into the person I am supposed to be,” she wrote. “I am a positive person who looks for the good in every person and every situation. I love to laugh, smile and have a good time. I try to bring the joy that I feel every day to the people I encounter on a daily basis and try to be a positive person in lives, even if I just met them.”
