It's concerning to me that "Do you accept the Church's teaching on [x]" (such as abortion, birth control, or pre-marital relations) is considered a valid question on a Catholic website; I cannot imagine discerning with someone who says "no" to any of those questions, since it would serve as an impediment to a proper, Catholic relationship.  But they're likely trying to take people "where they're at", which is understandable, and also having such filters is very helpful for those who wish to avoid that.  (Note, I have never used the website, and am reporting this only anecdotally.)

I would be hesitant towards the "mail-order bridge" thing; you're attempting to discern with a person you don't know, who might have different motivations (citizenship), and it puts a high expectation on your shoulders since you brought her all the way here and otherwise she would have to return.  I think it's especially unhealthy for the girl in that situation, and also for your discernment.  It's much better to date a person for who they are, having already gotten to know them, than to figure that part out after already being in a relationship.
"There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church -- which is, of course, quite a different thing." -Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity." -Fr. John Hardon, S.J.
