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 don't want to pay $30/mo to just try to find someone right for us. We decided we had enough.

So, we made our own Catholic dating website, and we’d love for you to try it.

A few notes first:

  • It’s free (for the foreseeable future, but at some point we will need to be able to cover operating costs). For now, we just want a safe haven for those looking to find someone of the faith and we’ll pay for it out of pocket. We want the faithful to have an open and safe place to meet each other, with as few barriers as possible.

  • We want your help in making it the best possible place for finding a match. Read that again, slowly. Please reach out to me directly, or use our feedback form on our website to let us know what you want to see in the worlds best catholic dating website.

    • *Caveat time* - we are a small team, so please be patient with us! We will commit to adding features that this community wants to see as fast as we possibly can!

  • As is the case with any brand new social network, it’s a little quiet right now. But, our vision is that it will soon become the single best place for Catholics to find meaningful connections. So, feel free to make an account and come see us on occasion. Or, you’ll get an email when someone chats you up!

We hope you stop by, meet a few people, and find a meaningful connection or two!

Faithfully,

Ken and Philip

EDIT: WOW, thank you for the awards, the generous offers of support and all of the incredible feedback!! We promise we will keep our development process as transparent as possible and will update this sub as we continue! Thanks again!!

5 things men ACTUALLY find attractive

There are a great deal of misconceptions about what men ACTUALLY find attractive in a mate. So many, in fact, entire industries are built on selling women an ideal version of themselves, and to always keep them second guessing on what men might actually want in order to buy product A, or sign up for service B. In reality, the traits that men find most attractive are rather simple, and are often shared by both genders. Really!  1. Model body types  WAIT ! This doesn't mean exactly what you think it means! Let me explain: A recent study asked both men and women to describe their perceptions of what the opposite prefers with respect to body size and body composition. Interestingly enough as the study concludes: "women think men desire thinner and less female bodies than men actually do".  This is resoundingly true with men across the spectrum, and while not true for every man, most men are more attracted to "real" body types, and not unattainable, idealistic versio

3 Online Dating Etiquette Tips for Catholics

All dating is difficult. Online dating uniquely so, especially for those of us looking for a specific match in the physical and spiritual world. The good news is that it can be done, and using best practices and some tips and tricks, you can tilt the online dating game in your favor. Keep in mind, building a great online dating profile is cumulative. There are no silver bullets to taking an online profile from lacking to all-star - instead, there are a host of small changes you can use to up your game.  Be clear and concise It's important to know what things are non-negotiable in your future relationship, and make those things known early on in your dating profile. This requires a bit of self-reflection, as you should be spending some serious time giving these 'hard stops' some serious thought. Many relationships are doomed early on when one (or both) parties don't fully grasp their non-negotiables early on. This is a recipe for lost time and heartache.  Once your non-n

5 traits women ACTUALLY find attractive

In response to our prior article , it was time to create an article that answered the other side of the equation, and this time it's for all the dudes out there!  It is a timeless question: what do women want in a man? Further, and perhaps more importantly, what do faithful women look for in faithful men?  There are a lot of articles out there to consider, along with a lot of mixed advice, but we've narrowed this list down to five heavy hitters for you to focus on going forward.  1. Confidence Confidence is infectious, especially in a romantic partner. We all want to feel like we are with someone who is strong, self-assured, and independent.  Confidence is a tricky one though, because it's a bit of a catch-22. Low confidence begets more self-criticism begets lower confidence. Seeing highly confident people from a distance can feel like looking through the glass at a really great party: everyone is having fun and smiling, and you're left out in the cold. Ouch. Good news?
