Member Spotlight: Jazz Musician Seeks Holy Wife


Ikedi, 22, enjoys jazz and exercise and is seeking a wife on CatholicMatch.com

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.”

    That’s a big expectation, isn’t it? A holy wife? How many people on CatholicMatch.com are holy? How many in the general population?

    I think what you expect is great, but I’m curious to know what you think about a soul mate? Does God create everyone with another person in mind for them? Or are there several people for everyone?

    In my opinion, I think Ikedi is asking for too much, I think the focus should be to find a woman who will be willing to grow in faith with you, not an ‘already-made’ holy woman. I dont believe anyone is capable of completely living a holy life without assistance,especially if they live in modern times. My prayer is for God to send me the woman who is open for spiritual growth with me, not one that will destroy what I am trying to nurture inside…

    Brief story yet important. Ikedi seems likeale & is a good lookiing young man. With prayers he’ll very likely find his pen-pal. Corrresponding is’ certainly a method of getti ng acquainted that”s become more populaf lately ( I find it a comfortable setting )

    what i found to be amazing is don’t be too judgmental. i met someone on here i am just friends with at the moment. a few things stood out at first that i worried about. well i looked past that because i know i have many flaws myself. and since then now what i got to know is how beautiful this womans heart is. thats what is so amazing and i wouldn’t have gotten to see this hadn’t i looked past a few minor details what is now nothing!
