A Word of Advice for Catholic Men

So, you’re a practising Catholic man who is looking to start dating. Look no further than Match! Our expert advice will help you along the way. Here are some key tips for Catholic dating in Ireland:

  • Get to know each other before dating – Using Match, you can message people you are interested in and get to know each other a little. Using this time to talk about your expectations (without piling too much pressure on!) or just what they love to do in their free time is a great way to make a connection.
  • Tailor your search – With filters and the ability to search for profiles based on their preferences, there’s no easier way to meet someone who mirrors your values.
  • Fit dating around your schedule – It can be hard if you’re a committed Catholic to fit dating around your church schedule and commitments or your special someone’s, but it’s important that the person you are interested in understands your dedication to your beliefs as well as your dedication to each other.
  • Be honest – Trying to hide or minimise your beliefs for someone else is never a good sign; you should embrace your beliefs and be honest if you’re ready to start something special.
  • Take things slowly – Take your time and speak to the person you’re interested in. Finding someone who aligns with your outlook on life is the most important thing when you’re Catholic dating in Ireland, whether they share your religion or not.
  • Enjoy yourself – The most important advice of all! Dating should be fun, and it’s fundamental to enjoy the experience. Whether it works out or not, every date brings you a little bit closer to someone who really suits you.

Not to Forget Some Tips for the Catholic Ladies

It can be difficult as a practising Catholic woman to figure out whether someone is genuinely interested in you or if they are looking for a quick hookup. We have plenty of advice :

  • Don’t be too hasty – Holding back and getting to know someone is the best part of dating! Messaging and taking the time to see if someone really suits you before you meet in person is a great way to filter out people who aren’t right for you.
  • Being open is fundamental – Statistically, Christians use dating sites for years before finding their ideal match. It can be helpful to revise your expectations and think about the qualities you’d like in your special someone other than their religion.
  • Talk about things – Even if it’s difficult, talking about the more fine points of your expectations aids in the betterment of your Catholic dating journey.
  • Distance is no obstacle – With advances in online dating, there’s no reason you need to start dating someone down the road from you. You can date people from all over Ireland and find a truly diverse group of people who share your interests and ideals.
  • Try not to be too serious too quickly – When you fancy someone, it can be tempting to think they are your whole world! But it pays to keep things simple until you feel comfortable having conversations about commitment.
  • Write down some thoughtful date night ideas – This is a cute way to make sure you never run out of date ideas! Putting them into a jar and pulling one out every date night is a great means of keeping things exciting well into the future.
