I’ve often heard “The bait you use determines the fish you catch.” It’s true.
If you are looking for someone who seeks satisfaction for themselves at any cost you may have found it. Someone who accepts naked photos is looking to take, not to give. They are obviously not looking for a possible spouse.
If you truly care for this person, the condition of their soul should be what you care for. If you, a practicing Catholic, are looking for a possible spouse, are all your actions encouraging them to seek God?
I often tell my children, “Will that action give them temporal happiness at the cost of eternal joy?” And also, “Will that action give them temporal happiness at the coat of your own eternal joy?”
I’ve been on your end unfortunatly, I’ve used the bait of my body to catch relationships that cost me my heart. In my ignorance I couldn’t understand why they weren’t truly interested in me.
If I could give you any advice I would apologize to the person you sent an image to. A good man would have rejected the image, a better man would admit too that it was wrong, and accepting that image from you was taking something from you that doesn’t belong to him. I would be honest with him that you are a practicing Catholic, and what your true intentions are in a relationship; the pursuit of your vocation.
Chumming the water catches fish quick, but if you are looking for a good catch you’re going to have to sit in the boat for a while fishing the same river, using honest bait. The wait will be long, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery, and grow closer to God in prayer. Be sure to hit up the confessional first!
