I’ve been using Catholicmatch.com for about three months now. It’s similar to other online dating sites except one has an opportunity to talk about what elements of Catholicism one agrees and disagrees with.
According to the site, there is exactly one attractive single Catholic man in New York. His name is Ed. I’m convinced I’m competing with every other desperate woman of marrying age on the site for his attention.
More often than not, I get into fights with people in other countries, which apparently house stricter Catholics. I’m fighting with a 40something year old in Belfast with Catholicmatch.com as the bridge between us. See round one below.
Meet Hugh of Belfast, Ireland. I think he means “a la cart” not “alacare”:
HI KATH I READ YOUR PROFILE WITH INTEREST AND AS A CATHOLIC MYSELF IM LITTLE TAKEN BACK BY THE WAY YOU BELIEVE IN THE CATHOLIC TEACHING OF THE CHURCH LED DOWN BY ST PETER HIMSELF NO ONE ELSE MY QUESTION TO YOU IS IS THE EUROPE DIFFERENT IN ITS TEACHING THAN THE USA? JUST THINK OF ROME THIS YEAR WHEN YOU SAW ONE OF THE BIGGEST TURN OUT EVER SEEN FOR A GREAT SAINT TO BE JOHN PAUL II WAS HE WRONG IN HIS WAYS I ASK YOU ? THE INPORTANCE OF THE UNBORN IS ALSO VERY INPORTANT IN LIFE ALONG WITH ANOTHER BIG ISSUE PRIESTS IT NOT FOR A PERSON TO BE JUDGEMENTAL IN LIFE ITS NEXT LIFE WHICH YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT WHEN WE ALL MEET THAT PERSON . WELL TO ME THERE IS ONLY ONE CREATER . PLEASE JUST CONSIDER THAT BEING A CATHOLIC IS NOT ALACARE. GODBLESS YOU AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS GO TO A WEB SITE ABOUT MEDJURORIE AND YOU WILL SEE AFEW THINGS IN THE CHURCH.
To which I replied:
Not to be rude but sounds like you need to get laid.

HI THAT WAS A VERY NICE REPLY COMING FROM A PERSON THAT SHOULD HAVE NO PLACE ON A SITE LIKE THIS THIS IS ONLY FOR PROPER AND STRONG PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF THAT KNOW ALL ABOUT THE DIRT AND FILTHY LADIES LIKE YOURSELF WHICH HAVE GO AROUND SITES LIKES THESE TO LOOK FOR GUYS BUT I THINK YOU SHOULD TRY ELSE WHERE WHICH ENDODGES IN SITES FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF AND AS FOR GETTING LAID YOU SEEM TO KNOW ALOT ABOUT THAT SORT OF THING BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS.
In reality, all I was trying to do was meet a nice Catholic boy in a city seemingly dominated by Jewish guys and homosexuals. It’s not that I don’t love Jewish guys. I do. I mean, I LOVE them. But I go to Church and I want to marry a nice Catholic boy and pop out cute Catholic babies. Yet, in my efforts I don’t think I should have to receive the abuse highlighted above.
