  • Some Catholics treating marriage as The Best and Most Holy Vocation really rubs me the wrong way.

    Like, maybe it’s just because I grew up in a not entirely perfect Catholic school that basically told us “marriage is the last sacrament you can receive before death… if you’re a guy you can become a priest, I guess, if you really don’t want to be married :/,” but the lack of education and acceptance of non-marriage vocations (especially those outside of priesthood) is discouraging to say the least.

    Like, my own mother discourages me from discerning if I am called to religious life because I “haven’t found The One yet” or I’m “running away from my responsibilities.” So many Catholics judge those called to the single holy life for being workaholics or not “really searching for their vocation” without even speaking to the person in question. I know those who have agonized about the single religious life because everyone around them expected them to marry or, “at least” join a religious order.

    The holy single life is a vocation! Religious orders and charity work is a vocation! Marriage is a vocation! None of them are “better” or more holy - though Paul may have some words regarding that - but it’s ultimately about what you are called to be, not what others think you should be.

  • Huge shoutout to my sister who told me yesterday that the reason I’m single is because I don’t go on dates.

    1) Really? Wow, why didn’t I think of that???

    2) Who? Who exactly should I go on dates with??? Oh wait, let me just pick someone from that huge invisible line of people waiting to date me…..

    Conclusion: NEVER EVER speak to a non single person about anything to do with being single. They know nothing.

  • On a reaaaally rough and tiring day, all I wanna do is crying for no reason, letting out all the emotions that trapped in my chest and mind, drinking a giant cup of ice chocolate milk, then snuggling with my cat all night to end the shitty day.

  • Just because you’ve got your heart broken a few times does not mean that you will never find someone that loves you. Be the person you want to attract, choose wisely, think long term and don’t give up hope. Trust in God, he has plans for you.

  • Hi, I’m a 24-year-old Switzerland-based student, writer, artsy-lover, weirdo, whatever. In my 24 years, I’ve never been on a date with someone from a dating app until last week. I thought I should finally go out and meet new people. A dating app seemed to be the easiest way, so I downloaded bumble (after consulting my friend of course). A few minutes after setting up my account, I received my first matches and I started talking to them. One guy did not chat or write much but straightforwardly asked for a date. I have to admit, I was hesitant at first because he was still a stranger. Buuuut then again, I signed up to meet new people, so I just agreed to dinner. (I proposed a coffee date but he was not able to meet earlier). He sounded really excited when he asked me out but the next day it seemed like all the excitement was gone. He is not a frequent texter which complicated planning the date a bit. On the day of the date, I was not sure if we were still meeting up because he hadn’t confirmed the time until a few hours prior to our dinner. I chose the restaurant and he said, he could be there at 7.30 pm. The whole time I felt like he was going to cancel on me but I still got ready in time. Before I left the house, he texted me and said that he tries to be on time but that he might be a few minutes late. I don’t mind if someone is a few minutes late (and by ‘few’ I mean 5-10 minutes) just don’t be too late.

    I arrived at the restaurant at 7.35 pm because my train had arrived a few minutes late. I wrote to him to let him know that I was waiting outside. I was texting my friends while I waiting for him. At 7.50 pm my friend told me to leave if he doesn’t show up in a minute because 20 minutes is a bit more than a “few minutes late”. Right then, he texted again saying that he’ll be there shortly. Soo I decided to wait a bit more because I was really hungry and ready to have dinner. He managed to arrive at 8 pm. After I had waited for almost half an hour. So, that was my first impression of him. 

    The dinner was pretty awkward, lol. There were a lot of times where we didn’t know what to talk about so there were awkward silences and awkward staring at our food. But the worst part is that he was constantly on his phone! As soon as we sat down, he took out his phone and started texting - before we even had a real conversation! After a bit of small talk, he then explained to me that he was expecting a call, so he had to check his phone constantly. Normally, I don’t look at my phone when I’m meeting someone unless I have to show them something or take pictures of my food. Therefore, his behavior seemed extremely weird and rude to me. First, he shows up late and then he only focuses on his phone. Geez, that date was so bad that I started laughing internally. It was my first online date experience and it was really strange. I knew right then that I was not going to see him again after that. 

    After dinner, he suggested that we go on a walk. We went outside and he immediately wanted to go to a convenience store to buy cigarettes. Actually, I don’t mind if someone smokes. My friends smoke too. But his dating profile said that he isn’t a smoker, ergo that kind of slightly bothered me. Our walk was better and less awkward than our dinner. We were able to talk without the awkward silences. However, he was still constantly checking his phone and not fully focusing on our conversations. 

    We sat down at a place with a view of the beautiful city (but gladly we were not all alone). Minutes later, he finally got the call he was waiting for the whole date. He was gone for a solid 10 minutes to talk to that mystery person. (I seriously contemplated leaving haha). He came back after his call and said he had to leave because his friend was celebrating his birthday. I was fine with ending our date. I walked halfway back with him until we had to go separate ways. When we said goodbye, he actually asked me if he would see me again! I was surprised to hear that! And he even texted me before I got home and asked me if I would go on a date with him again. He promised me, he would be less weird the next time (aka not being on his phone all the time haha). I have to say, he was kind of nice (when ignoring the weirdness) and doesn’t look bad but we just weren’t vibing. 

    And now comes the weirdest or stupidest part: the whole time that I was thinking that the date was bad, I started missing the guy that dated last summer! (yes, wtf!) I started thinking about the genuine connection we used to have and how easy going we were (while my date was absent). I thought I was finally getting over him and ready to meet new people but then I start missing him while being out with other people. I am soo weird. Like seriously, something is wrong with me… 

    Well, I’ve deleted my dating app today. I don’t use it, and I stopped talking to the people there.
