… I am calling it “research”; it sounds much less cringe worthy.
OK, here goes…
Comparing men from two internet dating sources, one Catholic and the other secular, yielded some interesting results. I was surprised to find the majority of the men from the secular site are more receptive, intellectually curious and spiritually open to Catholicism than the ones I have encountered on the Catholic site.
Now that is not to say all the men from the Catholic site were not enthusiastic about the faith, quite a few were… but less in number if I were strictly making a mathematical comparison.
It could be for the Catholic men that their faith is such an everyday thing it is taken for granted or just a given not worthy of mention. It could also be, for the secular men, the novelty of something different on non-religious dating site that piques a spiritually curiosity. I tend to think the latter more so since as humans we are driven to seek a higher purpose in life. Often those lacking direction spiritually are the ones hungriest for discussions on matters of faith and religion.
I am happy to oblige. A friend calls me a “poacher”… that is meant as a compliment.
My “research” continues…
