Dating: who?
#1
A little background: I'm a long-time lurker, brief one time former poster. Male, almost 30, went to Catholic school most of my life and consequently received very little worthwhile catechesis, fell away from the Church for years and came back with a vengeance. I'm currently a member of the most conservative NO church in my city but have been attending the local FSSP TLM (ten minutes down the road) most weeks.

Most of my friends and acquaintances are married. I am single and it weighs heavily on me - concupiscence and all the related habits aside, I need human companionship...enough that it's my primary focus at this point in my life. I've dated around plenty, had plenty of girlfriends, but nothing ever came of it. I'm definitely in the market for marriage.

Non-hypothetical scenario: all other things being equal, is it better to date someone who is "formally Catholic" but dissents on dogma (birth control, female ordination, etc.) or someone who is Protestant but seems traditionally minded (at least not opposed to Catholic teaching, is chaste, etc.)? And don't say "find a trad girl." As far as I can tell, all the single ones are 12 or 70. (And I've been lurking here long enough to assume dk and scipio will say "date the hot one," HK will say to go for the older or richer one, etc.)
