Am I cheating myself of potentially finding a future spouse if I choose not to join online dating (ex: Catholic Match)?
I have never found the idea of online dating appealing and though everyone else tells me “what’s there to lose?”, or think it’s a good idea, I come up with a laundry list of reasons why I don’t want to join. But I don’t know if I’m just being ridiculous and overthinking/over-analyzing everything (which I’m known to do), or if maybe this is a sign that God doesn’t want me to join. The best way I can describe my feelings towards online dating is just a bad gut feeling about it.
Yet at the same time, I wonder if me not joining means I’ll be forever alone. (FWIW, I am pretty active in my young adult community and have many Catholic friends, but none who are eligible or on my radar… and my friends don’t even know anyone to set me up with). I’m pretty certain I feel my vocation is marriage, but have been feeling rather hopeless.
Thoughts, advice, etc much appreciated.
