58, Champaign, ILI'm a 51 year old guy who's never been married. The last twelve years have been the most absolute fasinatiing years of my life, it's been pure hell, but He has proven Himself faithful. I stoped drinking 27 years ago and have been on the straight and narrow since then, with a little help from my friends from Akron. I currently smoke but there on there way out soon. I quit once for three years, but cigars got popular and well, one thing lead to another.
37, Bloomington, ILHi there! Friends describe me as loyal, thoughtful, hard-working, organized, patient, affectionate, and having a big heart. I'm a generally happy person (I smile easily and laugh a lot) and a hugger. I am a bookworm (I read or listen to audio books on the drive to/from work every day), but I also love the great outdoors. I like being out in the woods or near a lake (not afraid of dirt, camping, horses, etc). I like planning trips (by plane, train, or automobile) and there are lots of places I would still like to visit. I enjoy watching a variety of sports and I'm looking forward to the Olympics. In case you're wondering, I cheer for the Redbirds, Hawkeyes, Colts, Cubs, and Blackhawks. Watching them on TV is great, but being there is even better. I'm not a competitive person unless I'm playing trivia. If that's the case, watch out! My family is a huge part of my life and I hope yours is too! I attend Mass weekly and sing in the choir. I dabble in community theater and always have a variety of craft projects going. I'm comfortable making popcorn and snuggling up on the couch for a movie, but I don't mind getting dressed up for an evening out. I bought my first house last fall, so that is my latest adventure. I am looking for my best friend, the man who will be my companion on the rest of this journey through life. We share our faith and our love of family. We work hard but laugh a lot and remind each other not to take life too seriously. We respect and encourage each other. We have some interests in common and share new adventures too...and hugs! Thank you for taking the time to read about me. I hope to hear from you. Have a blessed day!
56, Metamora, ILI've spent too much time thinking about retirement. The truth is, and God willing, I have several more years to work. I like my job and love the people I work with - so my new motto is to 'live in the moment' and make the most of each day, whether it be at work or outside of work. Family is very important to me and I've been blessed with a great one. I'm fairly active - like to travel, hike and take a yoga class several times a week. I also recently started playing pickleball - don't knock it until you try it - it's fun. I'm not into the bar scene, but enjoy a drink or two. I'm looking for someone who has family as a top priority, enjoys doing things outside - hiking/walking/golfing, etc - and is just as happy staying in and watching a movie as going out. One more thing - yes - I'm really 6' tall.
46, Champaign, ILHi there! Im a simple woman with simple needs in life. I'm a happy person, friendly, hardworking, easy going, flexible and with good moral values. Firm believer of the Golden Rule. Family oriented, compassionate and kind to elderly, children and those with disabilities. I find leisure in learning new things, traveling, and staying fit and active.
46, Washington, ILFamily is one of the most important things in my life. I love to spend time with my nieces and nephews because they can always bring a smile to my face with their antics. I like to watch sports, baseball in the summer and football in the winter. The Royals and the Chiefs are the teams I follow. I will admit that I have been out of the dating world for a while. Partly to take a break after mutually ending a year long relationship and partly due to health issues of my dad and his eventual passing three and a half years ago. I was ready to venture back into the dating scene last year about this time and was diagnosed with breast cancer. I am a survivor after having completed chemo and radiation on December 30! I am so looking forward to July 14 when I will be done with the cancer cell blocker!!! This year long journey has really put life and relationships into perspective. I know that hearing the word cancer is scary and sometimes not easy to deal with but it is now part of who I am but it does not define me. I'd rather be up front about that part of my life because I had friendships change and I even lost some friendships because of how people react to someone having had cancer. For me that was one of the hardest parts of my cancer journey. Thank you for reading my profile and I wish you happiness in your search. Feel free to drop a line if you would like to know more or if you'd like someone to chat with. Peace and God bless.
29, Urbana, ILHi! I'm Clint. Thx for checking out my profile. I'm passionate about my relationship with God. I've been through a lot of heartache in life, but I'm looking forward to discerning the right person for marriage. I'm a serious minded person and I want to move forward with the confidence that God will shine light each step of the way. I'm looking forward to a real encounter with someone special. Love is such an incredible feeling, but I also want to find someone who is ready in her heart to take the leap of faith that is marriage and commit when the time is right. My mom & my sister and my past relationships were all influential to my growth as a person. Tragedy also helped, by revealing what was most important to my heart. Through loss, I have learned to depend on God for all that I am and desire and have. Unfortunately much of my spiritual progress has come in the wake of a lot of bad decisions, though (I come with some baggage because of it). I am working everyday now to follow in the footsteps of those whose lives testify to the love and truth of the Catholic faith. My life has radically changed since I started following Jesus again. He is so merciful to me. And I love Him with all my heart!!! Sorry ladies...you'll have to play second fiddle to the King of the Universe! I like to read & watch Netflix and MMA. I drive long distances for a living and have traveled through 48 states. I may have more life experience than most 29 year olds. I'm sincere, warm-hearted, affectionate. I cry at sad movies, I've a soft spot for animals, especially cats, but don't currently have any pets. I work out occasionally because fitness is important. But this has dropped off in recent times. I eat a lot of fast food because I work around the clock during the week and because I'm a single man who doesn't really know how to cook. I want my future wife to desire me and feel safe around me! I want her to laugh, but I've been told I have a very odd sense of humor, so I won't hold my breath! :D I enjoy adventure. I'm not a handyman.I call someone more skilled when I have technical problems or need to change the oil in my car or fix something. This is ironic because I drive a truck for a living and my job includes some manual labor. It's a paradox.... I am fairly calm & even a little reserved sometimes, but I am willing to assert my will if there's something I really care about. I try to do my best at everything I do, because all of Heaven is watching.
59, Bloomington, ILI am an outdoors person most of the year - don't enjoy the Illinois winters - - and am looking forward to finding a better climate for retirement.

54, Bloomington, ILI have three beautiful and interesting daughters -- 21, 14 & 12. Each have their own special talents and qualities. Their activities, mostly athletic, gladly occupy a large portion of my time. I try to attend Mass every day and pray the rosary each day as well. I am active in the Knights of Columbus, currently serving as a District Deputy, formerly as a Grand Knight. My other great interest in life is baseball. I am a lifelong fan of the World Champion Chicago Cubs; yes, that's right, the World Champion Chicago Cubs! It feels Great to be able to say that. But I not only love watching the Cubs, but any baseball game. Next to my faith and my girls, baseball is truly a passion in my life.
68, East Moline, ILI've been influenced by my parents and family and friends....mainly family. We are close knit in most holiday celebrations and we welcome yours. I've been a part time caregiver to relatives as needed by choice.....and with God's help. My son his wife and two granddaughters are very dear to me. I've traveled past 30 years and welcome it as my faith continues to grow.... I enjoy life, people, staying fit/eating healthy, all music, traveling, and sharing this with my partner. I believe in treating my equal with TLC. I enjoy cuddling in front of the fireplace, at a sunset moment, when walking, or just because. I wish all the best in their search. :-). I might just add ......no photos or if wearing sunglasses I will not respond to your message. Thanks for your patience. I will b able to subscribe last week of March.
