Recently articles we posted about Catholic men and dating went a small viral. This week a Catholic gal (who wanted to stay anonymous) responds with a few suggestions for avoiding typical Catholic dating faux pas.
The topic of Catholic dating comes up regularly or, more specifically, the topic of why there is often a lack of dating among young Catholics in my circles. Everyone’s a professional on in which the blame should always be put: the culture that is hook-up the hang-out culture, the so-called ‘friend-zone’, feminism, men being wimps, females using the effort instead, discernment dragging on, while the list continues. The post that is recent “Catholic Men Should Be the greatest Daters”, refreshingly failed to make an effort to psychoanalyze our stilted romantic lives, but provided a straightforward and practical message: dudes, just ask girls away.
The post evidently hit a nerve, with many gents and ladies sharing it through social media marketing.
