I am a 30 y/o single practicing Catholic man. I have had my fair share of dating experiences- all of which are from online dating and most of which have ended up terribly. I am going to take a young Catholic woman on a date for Valentine’s Day this year. This will honestly be my first date with a woman who I HAVE NOT met on a dating site/app. I have known this woman for a bit over a year and we are pretty good friends (we attend the same Parrish). My biggest problem with dating previous women is that I feel I have been too needy/clingy. I feel like I have to rush things and spend tons of time with the woman I am dating right from the beginning. In the past, this often becomes detrimental to our relationship and we end up going our separate ways. I am hoping I can somehow overcome this problem with my friend who I am taking on a date, but I would really appreciate any advice on how I can do this or advice on Catholic dating in general.
