In our busy single lives, how often do we attend Mass at the same time and same location every week?
I made friends with Clare shortly after her engagement. “It’s a Catholic dating website.” Clare was in her early 30s when I met her but looked younger.
The natural question I asked was how she met her fiancé. She was striking, exceptionally bright and heavily involved with her university chaplaincy.
Providentially, Clare soon heard from James, a 36-year-old teacher.
He had been using Catholic Match on and off for five years and was about to give up.
A lawyer first made contact with Clare and they seemed to get on reasonably well over email.
But when they exchanged pictures of their social activities, Clare’s match included pictures of him judging a bikini contest and she promptly put an end to the contact.
Thanks to this section, you are less likely to endure a steak dinner while your date insists the Pope is personally responsible for the Aids epidemic in Africa or that she thinks she has a vocation to the Catholic priesthood.
Of course, no tick-box exercise can completely assess romantic compatibility.
There are millions of people in the United States alone who practice Catholicism.
