To start out, I know what the Church teaches on dating non-Catholics. Also, this is kind of a petty threat so...deep intellectuals need-not pity me!
I have felt that in my life, especially in the past year (I'm only a freshman in college..haha) that God would pair me up with a nice Catholic girl (or ANY Catholic girl! haha).
I've never been in a relationship, although I've been close a couple times. I've been praying for a solid 2 years about God sending me the right girl. I've prayed about every crush I've had. When I wasn't specifically on a certain girl, I would pray for God to make it blatantly obvious who he wanted me to date, or even if He wants me in a relationship at this point in my life!
And it's not like I COULDN'T have a girlfriend...I just want one that will last more than 2 weeks, ya know?
But back to the main point, I've narrowed it down to only pursue Catholic girls. But now, seeing as how it's been a while with that to no avail, I'm starting to consider the possibility of going outside the Church.
Am I just being desperate and not being patient with God? It's not like I'm looking for first-time girlfriend to be my wife, but I realize there are SO many advantages to dating someone of your faith, and as a person who considers himself pretty solid in his Catholic faith, dating a fellow Catholic would make complete sense. Would God want me to date a non-Catholic? (so I could bring her to the Church! :D)
Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
