Have Faith, Find Love
At times, dating can feel like a rickety rollercoaster ride. It starts off slow. Next you're climbing to wonderful, lovely heights and then all of a sudden you plummet and, if you're anything like me, panic. The world of online dating is just as loopy. The World Wide Web provides many options but can sometimes bring a few unexpected dips and topsy-turvy turns. Regardless, the opportunity to meet so many Catholic singles in one forum is a blessing. You just have to keep the faith and learn to manage that rollercoaster like a pro. Here are a few tips to lead the way:
Initiate, Initiate, Initiate: Online dating eliminates one major fear for both men and women – the fear of initiating contact with a potential love interest. Unlike meeting someone at church, the grocery store or at a social event, you can peruse profiles and pictures without being noticed. So get online and start searching. Read through profiles and compare and contrast your hobbies, views, needs and wants. It's the only way to find the Catholic mate you truly seek and deserve.
Be Patient: Not everyone you meet online (or otherwise) will be "the one". Some of your love interest will lack the appeal you seek while some will fall into the dreaded "friend zone". Just be patient with the process. God made us all in his vision. He created us and we are all unique. He also created our perfect mates; we just have to be patient until we find the right fit.
Keep The Faith: If you believe, you will achieve. It's as simple as that. If you believe God is shining his light on you then you know without a doubt that your soulmate is out there. Getting discouraged with dating is common and natural, but don't wallow or allow this loopy rollercoaster ride called love steer you from your destiny. Keep the faith and God will provide the rest.
