Dating for catholics
I’m not single by choice or because it feels safe, in single because there’s no one to ask me out and even when there are, they don’t because no one is ever interested in me.
After asking other young Catholics about their POVVs in regards to the dating scene, I decided that this will be the first of a series called “Catholic Dating Problems.” The first major problem that most single Catholics have when it comes to dating: Finding somebody!
The natural question I asked was how she met her fiancé. She was striking, exceptionally bright and heavily involved with her university chaplaincy.
We could all learn a thing or two from the men of the “greatest generation,” especially the importance of dating intentionally.
If there’s one thing we modern men seem to struggle with, it’s indecisiveness. So rather than setting a goal, like marriage, and pursuing it with gusto, we meander around, taking our time, waiting for some undetermined sign to reveal to us how we should proceed. We might even get serious and talk about marriage, but we are afraid to commit.
No, they were more than ready for the responsibility of marriage and family.
And they went looking for a wife, not a girlfriend.
I don’t understand the concept of a single Catholic man, because they don’t exist.
