CatholicMatch was one of the first Christian dating services on the web, and has remained faithful to its mission to aid its members in finding likeminded people. It doesn’t use any scientific formulas, but relies on the relationship with God to form marriages. The website actively supports its community with blog articles, forums and prayer support. Combined with the additions of new features, this makes CatholicMatch one of the best Christian dating sites.
Robyn Lee was so kind to arrange an interview with us, so we could learn more about CatholicMatch. We discussed a range of topics related to the site’s features, its beliefs and a look into the (mobile) future of CatholicMatch.
Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at CatholicMatch?
Robyn Lee is a 30-something single gal who manages the editorial content for CathlicMatch.com/blog. She received her undergraduate degree from Christendom College in Philosophy and received her master’s in Dogmatic Theology from Holy Apostles College. She is currently the only single aunt with almost 30 nieces and nephews. Besides her faith and very close family, she loves spinning in the early a.m., drinking upside-down caramel macchiatos and snacking on chocolate all day long.
How many daters are currently active on your site, and how many couples were formed through your site?
We do not release our total member database numbers but we have had thousands of couples get married as a result of meeting through CatholicMatch.com and that is just the ones we know about.
Which features does your mobile site offer to Catholic singles?
Our mobile site offers the most important features needed to keep engaged with CatholicMatch and we continue to add more features every month.

Why should daters choose CatholicMatch as their dating site and not, for example, Catholic Mingle?
CatholicMatch.com is faithful to the teachings of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. Users are drawn to CatholicMatch.com because they are looking for a spouse who shares the same faith and similar values. CatholicMatch provides tools like the temperament test that help users to know more about themselves and what they are looking for in a potential spouse. Members are able to realize the importance of God’s gifts and be open to sacramental grace when seeking their future spouse.
Can you explain to us what makes the CatholicMatch community so great?
CatholicMatch is a vibrant and active community with new members joining us every month. We are the only site with a blog, Faith, Hope & Love that has daily posts addressing the needs of Catholic singles. We also host forums with topics that are initiated by the CatholicMatch members. Our community offers prayer support, lively discussions on hot topics and even poll questions to engage others’ opinions. Even if your main priority is to find a future spouse, CatholicMatch provides the tools to help members make lasting friendships.
Why should Christians who want to date online use a specific Catholic dating website?
God works in mysterious ways and CatholicMatch helps members to be open to his surprises. We offer the tools that allow our members to be guided – not by scientific formulas – but by discernment and providence.
Are people of other religions and countries welcome on your site as well?
Yes as long as they are seriously considering becoming Catholic or are in the process of converting to Catholicism.
Are you planning on launching apps for iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices?
We are focused on the mobile version of our website. With a service like ours, the mobile version is most important, but we will offer some of the features through an online app in the Android and Apple stores.
Which new features are in the pipeline at CatholicMatch?
For competitive reasons we don’t talk about new features until they are at least in beta but we are very focused on mobile as well as creating content products for singles.
Which online dating tips do you have for Christian daters?
Meeting new people should be fun. When making an online profile, rule number one is to be yourself. Be genuine in the way that you describe yourself and in the way you fill out your profile. Upload pictures of the things that you enjoy doing. Stay active on the site by commenting on the blog posts, posting questions on the forums and sending messages to other users.

Anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
Maybe you never expected to meet someone online and maybe you feel intimidated by the process. Just realize that CatholicMatch is doing the introducing; all you need to do is be open.
With this great thought we concluded this interview with Robyn from the CatholicMatch team. We would like to thank her for her time and sharing her thoughts on Christian online dating.
