55, Rockford, ILI'm young at heart, kind and quiet but not totally shy, like to go slow and steady when I meet people. I like doing things that entertain the mind- chess, card games, video games too. I have a laid back kind of attitude, but with strong emotional feelings - I enjoy thinking that the glass is half full. I stick to the mottm "life is good" belief.
33, Chicago, ILI'm a bit of a complex character. I am shy, but I enjoy witty banter as well as a thorough philosophical discussion. I am sometimes cynical about the world, but I remain idealistic at heart. I am serious about many issues and passionate about learning and growing as a person, but I can also be silly and lighthearted. I am tolerant of others and always see the big picture in life, but I am also unswerving in my own convictions. My interests tend to be similarly layered. There is so much to learn about the world that I feel like I'm wasting time if I'm not always learning something new. My various nerdy interests include: History. Literature. Music. Languages and words. Movies. Food, coffee, and tea. Museums. Knitting. Politics. The environment. Trains. Europe (in general). Spain and the UK (in particular). PBS and NPR. I work for a nonprofit organization and can't imagine working anywhere that isn't a mission-based organization. I hope my work will always help others in some way. Myers-Briggs says I am an INFP, which I think is pretty spot on. I'm also an enneagram 4, if that's how you roll.
63, Gardner, ILI absolutely love spending time with my grandkids. The younger ones come running for a hug every time I stop by and will not let me leave without a hug and kiss. The older ones still think it's cool to go with me no matter where I'm going or for what. They will even invite friends to go with us. I am the director of our religious education and also teach our 5th graders. This is rewarding watching these little minds get their heads around being Catholic and how good there lives are and will be if they follow. I have also been blessed to be able to volunteer at a various different groups. I can also strike up a conversation with about any one. Just tonight in the check out line at a grocery store I had a conversation with the cashier about her volunteering to build houses in Haiti. I didn't know this girl, but she was really proud to share this with me.
54, Chicago, IL
48, Downers Grove, ILI have a tendency to be introverted, but I'm not afraid of adventure. I've lived overseas and love international travel. My world view makes me lean pretty far to the left politically. I have a tendency to be pretty disciplined, but I also like to have fun. I love live music and love to watch sports. I cheer for the Sox, Hawks, and Bulls. I love to eat...Indian and French are two favorites, but I also love Lou's. Escaping to the south of France is never far from my mind.

33, Palos Hills, ILI'm passionate about making sure that I live a life that God would be proud of. I care deeply about speaking out for those that cannot speak for themselves and try to do this at my job as much as possible. My family has had a great impact on my life. My values and my view of the world came from both the struggles and the opportunities I experienced growing up. In my free time, I enjoy learning (reading the Bible, researching health policy, attending salsa dance instructions, traveling as much as I can, or having late night philosophical debates with friends) . On a lighter note...I love to laugh...going to a live comedy show is always fun...participating in activities that really should only be for Kids-I recently heard there is a place where adults can jump on trampolines for hours (very excited) ..or trying out places like Space Golf are all nights that I would absolutely love.
23, Chicago, ILI love rock music, spending time with friends...travelling..I wish to visit Africa and Asia someday. I am a fan of Quantico. I wish to meet someone special here.
70, Chicago, ILI'm retired and stay busy with family and friends. My time was consumed with my grandson, but he's getting older now (12) and more into his video games. This leaves me more free time for me! I love to cook. I do that for myself, but would love to have someone to cook with and for. I do like to go out and eat as well, but again, it's good to do it with someone. I also paint, not art, but walls. I love decorating, though only in my own style. This year I went on my first European vacation. Actually it was a pilgrimage to Barcelona, Lourdes, Burgos and Fatima. Hoping to get to Italy/Rome very soon. I travel to Texas regularly to visit friends. Up until 2 1/2 years ago, I lived there for 17 years. After my spouse of 40 years passed away, I decided to move back to Chicago and the old neighborhood near family and friends. I tell everyone it was because I missed the cold and sub-zero days! I also try to travel to Mexico as often as possible, as I did a lot of that in my past life. I love the people, culture and of course the food. Retired in 2009 after 30+ years with the federal government. If we meet, I can fill you in on those details. Don't worry, it wasn't top secret, so you'll be fine with what info I share. I do like to joke a bit and love to laugh. It's what keeps me grounded and happy most of the time. I'm a baby-boomer soon to add another decade, if I haven't already when you read this. Relatively healthy, though the bones creak a bit more than in the past, but a few Alleve take care of that. God lead me to the site, so let's see what He might have in store for me and you. Good luck to you, and me too.
