How to Make a Relationship Resolution

As a new year begins, it's time to make a resolution. Not just any standard, easily breakable resolution concerning a fleeting gym membership or a change in menu items. This year, why not make a meaningful one, and maybe something that will last well beyond 2021 and into the far future.

This year, make a relationship resolution. 

If you are looking to find a meaningful lasting relationship and a true connection, why not make 2021 your year to change things? While you might not be able to simply 'will' a faithful and loving partner into existence, you can certainly stack the odds in your favor.

How to Make a Relationship Resolution

  • Understand your blessings
  • Commit yourself to the effort
  • Understand your opportunities
  • Focus on improvement

Understand your blessings

It's very important to not lose sight of your blessings, and be thankful for what you have been blessed with to this point in your life. We know that God teaches us to recognize the blessings and the good in life, and that can be difficult when we are feeling like we are missing 'our person'. It can be hard, but it is important to remain thankful, grateful and hopeful as you make your relationship resolution into the new year.

After all, don't you want to find someone equally grateful, hopeful, and thankful for your future as well? It's a great place to start! 

Commit yourself to the effort

Searching for a meaningful relationship can be difficult and draining, especially in 2021 and beyond. This is why it's important to commit yourself to your relationship resolution, as your resolution will likely not deliver a suitable mate next week. It's better to think about this process as a marathon, not a sprint!

Understand your opportunities

Imagine finding a long term love interest who is certain that they walk on water. They are so convinced that they are perfection in the flesh, and neither you nor any mere mortal can convince them otherwise.

Chances are, you probably wouldn't date this person, let alone marry them.

It's healthy and helpful to realize that each one of us is flawed in some way. Take a moment to understand your flaws, and think of some creative ways to begin working on them. It's likely that you will be struggling with some or all of these flaws throughout your life, but if you can show a potential significant other that you are trying to better yourself, you will be in a much better place to attract that person.

Focus on improvement

If we understand that we are all inherently flawed in some way, and accept that perfection is not an attainable goal for any of us here on planet earth, we have won half of the battle.

As I previously mentioned, if you understand your opportunities, you can work to improve on them. Any solid relationship will be built off of the fact that both partners will be inherently flawed. If you find a potential love interest that is already well aware of their flaws and is working on getting a better handle on them (or just managing them in a more mindful way), that person is all that more attractive and more prepared to become a great partner in a beautiful marriage.

While no resolution is going to deliver a suitable love interested wrapped in a bow, a great resolution can help prepare you for your future love interest and the marriage that awaits. God will help with the rest!

The Origin of CatholicLuv...

We thought it was important to share our origin story and make sure our valued community knows where CatholicLuv came from, and where we hope to go. Our community is everything to CatholicLuv, and for those that didn't join us from Reddit, we still thought it was worth sharing. The below post was posted to our Reddit account (u /Earth2Dwynwen ) on Dec 1st of 2020. We've finally had it... Hi fellow Catholics! I would respectfully love your feedback on a topic close to everyone’s heart in this sub: First, a little background. My colleague and I recently were talking about his struggles in the catholic dating world. There are a few industry leading apps (we know you’re here), but they’re all very expensive, poorly designed, or both (no offense, just our feeling). He was getting frustrated with the experience, and there really aren't many other places to turn, especially if you want to stay close to the faith. We’ve had too many awkward Tinder conversations about religion, and

Your privacy is important and that's why we removed Google Analytics.

We decided to remove Google Analytics from CatholicLuv  because we want to make sure that your privacy is protected. Google Analytics is a free tool, used by internet marketers and website administrators to understand how many users have visited their website, number of visits per page, and even drill down to individual users. According to W3Techs as of January 2021, Google Analytics is used in 84% of all known websites that use analytics, or 54% of all websites. It is so prevalent because Google provides the tool for free to website administrators, but there's a catch; not only do they provide useful data for owners of the website, Google uses the data for themselves. Google wants to know what sites you have been visiting to understand your interests in order to push ads they think you will click. Google tracks you from one website to another even if you're not using their search engine. As long as those websites are using Google Analytics, and over 1 in 2 websites are, Googl
