[/quote] I tried the free ones (could not afford the ones with a fee), got absolutely nothing, no interest, nothing.
I was skeptical to start with, prefering to meet someone in person.
I’m more the type of guy who would say, well, if God wants me to get married, then he’ll put the right girl into my life and I’ll know it! Start your search with one of the uncommon ideals, it saves time.
I’d just like a few answers to see what everyone thinks. I am very thankful that one of my best friends talked me into registering (and I’m sure that my son, once he’s old enough to understand, will be eternally grateful). If you were to make a list of your ideal spouse, there would be some things that would be common - height, hair color, etc. The key thing is to remember that exchanging a few emails is not a relationship, certainly not an exclusive relationship. I also was adament about not treating people I might feel attracted to differently than I would treat other people.
Remember, people can be anyone they want online and that’s not always a good thing.:shrug: Now, having said that part, I do have a couple of friends who met on those types of dating sites and fell in love and have been happily married for many years. I don't even know if I went on a single date with someone I didn't meet online. [quote="bobballen_18, post:1, topic:281446"] Hey everyone, this is kind of just out of curiosity - I want to know what people seem to think about online dating sites such as Catholic Match or Ave Maria Singles or whatever it is people use.
The people that are serious about finding someone will put the effort into it. ” I’ve actually tried an online Catholic dating site and was sorely disappointed. I had previously been on catholicmatch but I felt the needing to renew the subscription caused me to feel like I was wasting money if I didn't use the site for several months.
I have actually talked to more women through other regular chat rooms than i have with online dating sites, but again they are states away or living in Canada, so “shrugs”.
If people have honestly had success with them, congrats, to the rest of those considering, be very cautious, and if you can not meet the person with in a week to a month after corresponding I would suggest moving on.
How could someone doubt or dismiss that teaching, while having no problem with the trickier concepts of the Immaculate Conception and Papal Infallibility?
Of course I understood that it was all about the men wanting to have lots of sex, but still...
