CatholicMatch is a select matchmaking site for single Catholics. They have a group of around 84,000. Guests can create a picture profile, send virtual winks and see who's interested in them. If you go for a premium membership it unlocks email and advanced matches.
For those Catholics passionate about their faith, CatholicMatch offers a pleasant online forum for meeting other believers, either for friendship or for marriage. This lively website is packed with features that will help you to quickly get to know other people and to become a part of the online catholic community.
Members can describe in some detail their backgrounds and beliefs on their profile.
This makes it easy for members to search for other individuals whose beliefs and opinions are compatible with their own.
Prepare to Get Personal!
Creating a profile on the site takes around 10 minutes. After creating a profile, you have the option to subscribe as a paid member of which there are a few choices.
Or you can just explore the site as a free member with "limited access". After entering your name, location, email address and a password, you'll be prompted to enter some details about your appearance, background and your social habits.
For example, you'll need to answer a few questions about your political views, your smoking and drinking habits, and how often you travel. Next you'll be asked about your family background, and about your Catholic beliefs, such as your Catholic Rite, your Diocese, and which aspects of the doctrine and teaching you accept.
The questions are rather specific, though they're intended to give as complete and accurate a picture of you as possible. You won't be asked for a user name during the registration steps, this will be created for you automatically based on your first name, and a number.
The site also has a feature called the "temperament test", that offers some insight into personality. In order to view someone's temperament test, you first need to complete one yourself.
CatholicMatch has been around for a very long time. This is a service that's carefully designed with the needs of Catholics in mind. Not surprisingly they are keen to point out the advantages of using a tailor made dating experience such as this versus a supermarket style of dating that you'd get on Plentyoffish or Match.com.
