dating a jamaican - Irish catholic dating

Balancing difficult work commitments that involved lots of late nights and travel, it was hard to meet as many new people as I would have liked, so I started looking at Catholic online dating. Around one in twelve of us are Catholic, so 5.3 million people.

If just 10% of those are single, practicing Catholics who are looking to meet someone who shares their faith, then that means there's over half a million people in the UK searching for a Catholic partner.

Like me, many of us have moved city to a new community and due to work or other commitments, or perhaps just shyness, are unable to get involved in local Catholic groups.

So I thought, surely there would be a website or app to help me to meet someone? I found some large American Catholic dating websites that looked great but charged a lot and had very few active UK members.

I left my IT job in London and moved to the old home of Pope Francis, Buenos Aires.

As a Catholic, Argentina is an amazing place to live: beautiful Churches, pilgrimage walks with millions of people, weekly Mass packed full fifteen minutes before starting, potential apparitions of the Virgin Mary, and a deep missionary focus for all to help the poor.Surrounded with this inspiration, I decided to dedicate my skills to creating that Catholic dating website for the UK I was unable to find before.What made it worse with some of these was if the person you messaged had just registered for the free trial or their subscription had run out then they would be unable to reply to your message.In the UK there were a few options too, but they looked outdated and more like postal dating agencies than modern dating apps.In the end I just paid to join the largest secular dating site and filtered to 'Catholic' in the religion section, but by the end of my 6 month's registration I hadn't met a single traditional practicing Catholic.By mid-2014 I felt a deep calling to try something new and live another way of life.
