Hah. I’m by no means the ideal person to give you advice on this, considering I’m a single guy who doesn’t go out a lot, but logically…
…Logically, in the bars and such, you are not going to meet the right people. How likely are they to go there? Not totally unlikely (more on this in a moment), but slim chance. Actually, if you or I would on occasion go there, some other Catholics would probably also go. They’re just unlikely to be there.
Now, where would they be? If single and looking for a mate, probably either in some Catholic formal or informal programme, or, like you, wondering how to meet others. The former takes joining the group, the latter takes some reaching out. The former is probably the easier.
But easy to say. Well, things don’t happen just like that. Unless they do. It looks like they happen when you least expect them, so you might as well go on with life, but just I don’t know… stay open? Try not to miss those guys who are interested? Or interesting.
