    The show was great and I learned some stuff from it that I didn’t know before. For example, “the Welsh Female Saint who helps people get over heartbreaks and the medieval Catholic tradition of young girls followed to see their future husband in a dream”. These are two things that I never heard before and thank to your show that has now allowed me to know those things.
    Additionally, you also talked about the dating and priesthood. Now my questions are, why an online dating isn’t successful in most cases? Is there any improvement or other alternative to tackle this problem? Have you ever thought of using psychology to determine the effects of the online dating? In terms of personality matching, can blood types be use to determine a good future wife or husband? For example, can type “A” blood group match with another type “A” blood group or “B” to “B”; “AB” to “AB”; “O” to “O” and/or reverse the order by matching “A” to “B”; “A” to “AB”; “A” to “O”; “B” to “AB”; “B” to “O”; and “AB” to “O?” Why do I mention all this stuff? The reason is that I two unsuccessful relationships with the two non-catholic women- that is, one was a Protestant girl and the other was an Ethiopian Orthodox girl. Both of these girls were type “A” blood group and I was type “B” and I ended up being deceived and loser at the same time. Do you get my point that I’m trying to make regarding the blood types issues? In my first and third year Psychology classes I learned alittle bit about the type “A” and “B” blood groups. According to first year Psychology textbook and third year Psychology textbook, the DSM-5 UPDATE EDITION by Lilienfeld et.al.. 2015) . Friedman and Rosenman (1974) identified the Type A behavior as: “perfectionistic, prone to hostility, stubborn, opinionated, cynical, and controlling as cited in (Lilienfeld et. Al.., 2015’s, p.481). This same description of Type A trait was repeated in the third year Psychology textbook known as “Test and Measurement”, but I don’t have the detailed information at the moment. Type B trait was described as a calmer trait. What is your opinion or suggestion on this topic?
    Second, by the time my ex-girlfriend that I had two children with her had betrayed me and left, I felt like I wanted to become a priest and I joined St. Joseph 3 days seminar and met with the rector after the end of the seminar. I was told that I didn’t qualify for joining the seminary because of the two small children I had with my former prostestant girlfriend. I needed to support them till they turned 18 years of age. Second, I was also told that I would not be accepted to join the seminary if I owed any loans. And they were right I was owing $20,000 to government due to pharmacy assistant technician Diploma program that I took at the CDI college.
    The rector also advised me that I should consider getting married in the Catholic Church because my previous relationship with the Prostestant woman was done outside the Catholic Church. That meant I had one more chance of getting married in the Church.
    Then this brought me to my second girlfriend, the Ethiopian Orthodox woman who was also Type A trait. I engaged this woman for about three years and then later on I found out that she had another Ethiopian boy that I didn’t tell me about. Then my relationship with her ended.
    I did this mistake of engaging a none Catholic girl because I found it difficult to find a good Catholic woman. The reason is that most girls in my community are all Protestant. Protestanism is still predominant in my community. Second, I’m afraid of engaging any Type A trait woman because of the lesson I learned in the hard way.
    Third, because of the above two conditions, I feel like I want to attend religious life, but my two children are still young- that is, age 7 and 10. They need to reach 18 year old for me to be off the hook.
    On top of that I haven’t done with paying off my debts. That is, the pharmacy technician Diploma loan and BA. in Disability studies and Psychology loans.
    This is my comment regarding your Talk Show on Valantine Day.
    May God bless you and guide you in the Catholic Talks Show that you conduct daily. Amen!
    Sincerely yours,

    Third, because of the above two conditions,  I feel like I want to attend religious life, but my two children are still young- that is,  age 7 and 10.  They need to reach 18 year old for me to be off the hook.

    Love your show and always look forward to the next one. My daughter lives in Cleveland and I’ve always wondered- who let the dawgs out? Being a Steeler fan- we don’t have to worry about that. Grateful to learn much and laugh often listening and watching your talk show. Thank you so much. You’re the Best!
