Ikedi, 22, from Glenside, Pa., has big dreams for his future – a joyful wife, a large family, a life centered on Christ – and he took a step toward realizing them on Aug. 1, when he joined CatholicMatch.
The 6’3” daily Mass goer and regular exerciser said he likes what he’s experienced so far. “My membership to this site has helped me realize the fundamental importance of starting off in conversation through electronic messaging,” he said. “I believe messaging before anything else allows individuals to get to know each other better, establish proper foundations between the two of them and eliminate any awkwardness when the two physically meet.”
Asked about a favorite CM feature, Ikedi said, “I actually like the format for the profiles. They are very well set up and express more of the person than the individual probably realizes.”
Ikedi has a lot to offer a future wife – including faith, devotion and music. “Although my abilities are still rough, my vocation as a musician allows me to express myself through instruments as if my instrument were an extension of myself,” he said. He prefers jazz and soundscape music, especially on piano or saxophone.
But he needs a muse for his music.
“It’s a shame that women don’t realize how irresistible holiness makes them,” Ikedi said, “and when I say irresistible, I mean completely captivating in every way. A woman endowed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit will nothing less than completely capture my undivided attention.”
