Easy to Use
The special feature of Catholic Singles is that the vibe and layout is one that has echoes of Facebook. Subsequently, there is something comforting about going into a dating site that resembles that of a platform we all use frequently. The website has a dashboard where you can make updates and see other members’ updates. There is also a section dedicated to polls and blog articles, which adds to the sense of community you feel when using this dating website. Catholic Singles offers a section called “member prayer requests.” This is where you can see other members’ prayers. and you can pray for them. This is done by clicking a button at the bottom of their request (which holds similarities with poking people on Facebook). This has the edge when compared to other dating websites, as you can really get a personal feel for the other members on the site. This also makes it easy to use it in a non-romantic way. If you do not want to find love, but rather just fellowship, then this really is the place for you.
Messaging on Catholic Singles is only available to those who have paid for the full membership. This means that you can only send icebreakers to other members (which is an emoji from a group available to you when you press that option). The messaging service has more details in it compared to other dating sites as you can add emojis to your chat and even GIFs. Not many other dating sites offer this to their members.
There are two options available to you when you want to search on Catholic Singles, and these are simple and advanced. The basic one just shows you the singles based on the preferences you set when signing up to the site (this can be edited and changed later if you change your mind in any way. The advanced apply filters, such as whether they have a photo, physical attributes, education, life, and what they are looking for. If you have the paid membership, then you can also apply filters that look at personality, do they have children, habits, faith, and username search. Even without the paid membership, you have access to very detailed search functions that will no doubt bring up singles that match your needs and desires!
Safety & Security
The community of singles on Catholic Singles means that safety and security really are not at the forefront of your mind when using the site; however, this is something we always must take into consideration. There is a detailed FAQ section with many different sections for you to browse, although there is no number to call if you have an issue and no “contact us” button. As a result, you are left a little concerned that if an issue were to arise, you really wouldn’t get a response or solution from customer services very quickly. There is also no incognito mode available on the site and no explicit page warning about the trials and tribulations you may encounter when online dating. There is no serious concern for safety and security on Catholic Singles, but you will need to be careful how you go (as you would on any dating site).
Catholic Singles is one of the best dating sites out there for religious singles seeking love or fellowship online. The community doesn’t focus too heavily on the romantic side of online dating, so you do not feel forced to use it for this purpose. The Facebook-like dashboard brings a familiar comfort, and the over modern design make sit feel in touch and far more social than any other dating site. Like with many other dating sites, you will need to pay for the full membership to have actual success on the site.

You also do not have to be religious to use this site as when singing up, there is an option for atheists. So, if this dating site appeals to you and you are open to the idea of religion, then this is also the home for you!
