I admit that I was a terrible dater before getting married.I made just about every mistake, but what I can offer is some general principles based upon what I observe and what our team observes in working with singles every single day.Here are some suggestions to make the best use of your online dating experience: 1. I often compare online dating to a gym or a set of golf clubs because online dating is a tool to help your towards a solution—it is not a solution in it of itself.
However it may be due to the fact that they are not making the most of what opportunities they have.
Let me illustrate using one of my two above analogies.
Online dating is similar to golf clubs in that the clubs are only going to perform as well as the golfer using them.
Thus just because a person goes out and purchases the same exact clubs as Tiger Woods, does not mean he/she will play like him.
Conversely, if Tiger Woods plays with an old rusty set from the 1950s he is still going to be able to beat 90% of the golfers in the world. The clubs—while important—only make a small difference compared to his talent.
You can follow this line of thinking with almost any sport, hobby or skill involving equipment.Thus no matter how good an online dating site is, the question is still: how well is the person using it? How much do you understand the purpose of marriage, discerning marriage, or purposefully dating for marriage?Question: I have used Catholic Match on and off for several years now, with no success.I think about the thousands of single lonely people using this website and wonder why are we not connecting with each other?If there are so many people searching, why are we all still single?If I were to say right now: “Any woman who would like to get to know me, please message me,” nothing would happen. A few might look at my profile and say, “no.” So if this is what happens in general, no wonder we are all still single. I think there are a number of reasons why online dating sites are not as helpful as they can be for people.
