I've been using dating sites for years. The amount of time spent online amounts to months, not just days. In doing so, I've learned a lot about dating in general but more specifically Christian and catholic dating. Given that I hold my values to a higher standard than most, I have a need to establish that religious commonality. I'm going to share a few reasons why I love using Christian dating and sites and what they've essentially done to change my life. Trust me, they are the best shot you've got. Here's why... Christian Dating Has Changed My Life I have had what I'd consider to be a life changing experience using some of these sites. Now, in all fairness they are not all created equal. For example, some of them are far superior and effective than others. There are millions of Americans that share the same feelings as myself too. Just look at how many people have joined Christianmingle.com and Catholicmatch.com. Based on this study alone, CM is the most heavily populated dating site out there in terms of female users. I mean, 58% of the users are women. That's almost unheard of in free mainstream dating sites. The question you probably have is whether or not it actually works? I'll be honest, it took some working but eventually I was able to get things up and running and working like they should. All that led to religious based conversations with people that I'd be proud to take home to mom. Here's why I think a Christian dating site is the best and only approach. They're Real The women on these dating sites are about as real and honest as they get. You're not going to run into any issues like the people using Ashley Madison have had. Nor are you going to have to worry about your data becoming curropted at any point in time. This isn't the type of website where that happens. The women and men are just real people that want to connect with others. Values Matter The women and men on this site have values, unlike some other free sites. I hate to throw any others under the bus so I won't. What I can say is taht mutual values matter if you're intentions are to meet someone for a long-term relationship. Not Just Sex While I like hooking up and being intimate with someone, that's no longer my main focus. Today I care more about things much deeper than skin and sex. The same applies for many of the users of this site. Yes, an intimate sexual relationship matters but there's more to life than just sex. Anyway, those are the main reasons why I absolutelty love using Christian dating sites today versus the typical casual sites. Have a blessed day and good luck with your matchmaking! If I were you, I'd head over to the local Starbucks, grab a latte and start looking for local Catholic girls online.
