If you haven’t utilized our updated favorites section on your online profile, you’ll be happy to hear that you no longer have to check the predetermined choices for best food or music.
Now you can type the specific descriptions of your favorites which gives you the opportunity to uniquely name your interests.
For example, you don’t have to limit your likes to just football. You can write in a tag for Alabama Crimson Tide (Roll Tide!) and attract other members who share your passion for college football, the traditional Latin Mass or the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien.
CatholicMatch programmer, Nathan Lloyd explained that: “You can find the list of favorites under the search results as well as on “Viewed Me.” Any favorites that you have in common with another member will be highlighted in blue.
Nathan further explained that “This update changed the look of the profile. Now, in the Quick View box you will see a list of any favorites that you have in common with other members. You can also start a search from any of their favorite things and add them directly to your favorite things.”
Not only do the descriptive tags draw other members to know the real you, but they also help you discover your true match. As more and more members start to insert personal tags to their profiles, CatholicMatch will use these distinctive key words to improve the matching system. Go ahead and add those interesting details about playing the tuba, being a “30 Rock” fan or winning trivia every week.
You will find it easier to search for people who have similar interests and values. The snapshot of a profile and a few email exchanges can be valuable early indicators of how successful and enjoyable a first date might be. And for Catholics in search of a mate who shares the faith, that focus can be clear from the start.
