God is not some sort of cushion you can use to soften the blow of a break-up.
He’s the Creator of the Universe, so don’t take His name in vain. Shouldn’t I only date people who I could see myself marrying?
Ave Maria Singles does the heavy lifting of providing Catholic singles who share the depth of your faith.
With that common ground, you can focus on finding that one right person with whom you can share every other aspect of your life.
The Situation: Things seem to be going pretty well – and then all of a sudden it ends with one line: “It’s not you, it’s God.” Sometimes, well-intentioned Catholics will use God to get out of a relationship they don’t want to be in anymore. Those are both decisions that we made for ourselves, but they sound way better if God told us to do it.
Break-ups are always tough, but they’re even harder when the person you’ve been dating tells you that they’re ending things because God told them to. Someone once ended things with me by saying, “It’s what God wants” – and I can 100% say I’m glad that didn’t work out, but I wish she wouldn’t have played the God card.

If I tell a joke to a girl and she laughs, does that mean I’ve messed with her emotional chastity by inadvertently flirting?
Be clear and kind in the break-up process, but for the love of God, don’t put all the blame on Him.Making her laugh and being there for her when she cries is good, but don’t think for a second you’re the only one for that job.Also, as a high school student, you should only be picking out tuxes for prom – not your wedding.Ave Maria Singles is a safe haven for Catholic singles who realize that finding someone who believes 100% of what the Church teaches and desires to live it is no easy task.For 20 years, we have been providing a special Catholic online dating experience, establishing solid Catholic marriages and providing hope for those tired of dating Catholics who don't take practicing their Catholic faith or pursuing their vocation seriously.
