I'm on the journey towards becoming a Catholic. I'm also a single mum who would like to start dating again after over 2 years on my own. However, I would like to date a Catholic man so that right off the start line we have the same 'rules' and the same acceptance of each other's faith/lifestyle, etc.
The trouble is I am not very confident about a Catholic man wanting to even date me let alone have a serious relationship with me. I have been married twice (but not in a church), divorced twice, and I have 3 children (although 2 are grown up). Hardly an inviting prospect for a good Catholic man is it?
Shall I just forget the whole idea for a few years and just see what God has planned for me? Or should I be 'active' in deciding what happens? Or should I permanently accept the fact that I may never find a partner again...?
