56, Birmingham, ALThanks for viewing my profile. I am an adult convert to Catholicism from "secular humanism." I've lived in the Deep South for about half my life (all but 8 months of that in Alabama). I am canonically Melkite Greek Catholic but recently moved my parish membership to the Cathedral parish in Birmingham. My faith is THE most important thing in my life. Jesus pursued me for years and when I finally surrendered to His love, it changed everything, and it did so once and for all. No going back. I'm not a religious nut, but I am definitely a fervent, loyal Catholic Christian. I would describe myself as outgoing (but not always easygoing), bright (but not always smart or wise), intelligent (but not quite nerdy), interesting (but not exotic), openminded but with strongly-held convictions in many areas. One strong trait of mine is generosity. (Another is a tendency to be verbose ... in case you were wondering!) I am prone to make judgments quickly, but In the last few years I believe I have grown a lot in gentleness and kindness and self-control (Galations 5:12-23). I don't have as much dating experience as you might expect for a guy of my (shall we say, um) vintage, so don't count on me to know how to do courtship perfectly, should our two paths lead us to that. Courting my intended will involve a bit of trial and error on my part! Since I believe strongly in allowing God to lead me and equip me through the Holy Spirit, I'm not stressin' about that fact. Probably all of my Christian friends would acknowledge me to be a man of prayer, and I am praying that God might use this website to lead me to the one woman He created from all eternity to be my wife.
47, Montevallo, ALI love Christ, family and martial arts. Much of my life can be summed up in this statement. I am a convert to the Church, and accept the teachings--though, I do have issues with some. I am becoming a great admirer of Thomas Merton and C S Lewis.(and, yes, I am aware CS Lewis isn't/wasn't Catholic):)
32, Gulf Shores, ALSo, easiest way to describe me would have to be geeky. I do enjoy playing a PC or console game to past a little time. I enjoy a meme here and there as well. I also enjoy jogging to get some exercise. When I can I love to go hiking or kayaking but that doesn't happen enough unless I take a vacation from work. I do work retail so that does take some energy to deal with all the customers that try your patience. But I do love my job and its the best security I can have financially. God and Catholicism is extremely important for me. I just recently completed RCIA and got all my sacraments of initiation out the way. I was raised Catholic growing up in my house but my parents never really made my sis and I go through the learning of faith but I'm happy I finally did. I try to go to church every Sunday and also try during the week. And even if you haven't done all your sacraments I'd love to talk about them to ya! I'm just looking for friendship right now unless it develops into something more! Life's too short to not make friends but when you work so much you don't tend to look for friendships outside of work. If you have any questions or want to pick my mind just hit me up! =)
34, Huntsville, ALI enjoy any type of activity that engages my mind. I don't consider myself a bookworm, but I'm trying to read more; mostly nonfiction. I enjoy any type of outdoor activity. When the weather's nice, I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, biking & ultra races. I recently went skydiving for my 32nd birthday. Although I don't have a pet now, I'm an animal lover. I volunteer every Sunday with the high school youth at my church. I love working with kids of all ages & feel like I learn more from them than they do for me! I'm open to most types of music. Basically, anything that inspires or elicits emotion. I see my Catholic faith as a daily journey toward Heaven. I believe that Jesus left us the perfect Church & the tools that we need to obtain holiness. That's my goal. To get to Heaven & bring as many people with me. Ultimately, this will mean leading my wife & children to Heaven, but for now, it's striving for sainthood by attending daily mass, the "hospital for sinners". Although I long to be in a committed relationship, my goal is to find completeness in Christ and total dependency on him.
32, Auburn, ALI am passionate about education, both my own and others'. I believe that a day in which you don't learn at least one thing is a day without adventure. I spent four years in the Marine Corps. The experiences that I had in that time have played a large part in making me who I am today. I enjoy reading, dancing, relaxing with friends.
59, Mobile, ALI am the Father of three wonderful children. They live in Nashville, Virginia Beach, and Newport Rhode Island. I like to visit them as often as I can. I love my dogs and my hummingbirds and cardinals. The beach is my destination about four times a year. I am not looking for perfection as surely I am not! I Love going out to movies, dinner, and live concerts. I love my Church!
50, Rutledge, ALI was born down in the hollow in the Ozark hills where I lived on the farm for about 40 years. I now live in Alabama, but I go back to the Ozarks several times a year. I grew up working with my mother in the garden, playing in the creek, hunting and trapping in the woods, coursing bees, making sorghum, custom combining, building fence and hay barns. It was then that I traveled to Europe and when returning, learned to fly single engine airplanes, both land and sea. I weld and work on equipment in the shop, cut brush and firewood, make hay, manage a small herd of Brown Swiss dairy cattle here in southern Alabama. I raise and sell organic produce, have a couple ponies, some poultry and I like the work, it is rewarding! I also enjoy dutch oven cooking, canoeing, camping, aviation, horseback riding, singing harmony and playing the violin a little.
44, Montgomery, ALMy introduction is I am an Air Force brat. I am kind and giving person.I love college football and history. Enjoy traveling different parts of the world exploring the different subjects I learned in school and college. Therefore, I am a shy person, and enjoying cooking different foods. Love to learn about different people and cultures. Looking forward to meet someone is kind and a beautiful smile.
38, New Market, ALHello, my name is Joseph, and I am a bit of a workaholic. In my free time, I enjoy relaxing at home, watching movies and TV series via a popular streaming service that rhymes with 'pet tricks'. In addition, I play the occasional video game, especially those involving space and space exploration. Also, I am a hobby programmer. Finally, I also love just hanging out with my core group of friends, whether that be watching a movie or going bowling. I know this is a popular answer, but I believe that I am most inspired by my Dad. He is the quintessential Catholic Christian man: kind, loving, sacrificing, and a member of the Knights of Columbus. I have done my best to emulate his character. He taught me about what being a Catholic Man truly means. PS: Before anyone asks, I feel the need to explain my position on Contraception. I truly feel that I am in 90% agreement with the Catholic teaching on this topic. However, there is no middle ground when it comes to the question as asked, and I feel that this is shortchanging a difficult issue. I believe that the purpose of marriage is to be open to the transmission of life. However, in certain health related circumstances, the position on contraception may be waived. Mostly, for health reasons. For instance, a person becomes infected with HIV or another sexually transmitted disease through no fault of their own, be it via sexual assault or through tainted blood transfusions, etc. In this case, the spouse may also become infected. While contraceptives do not completely protect against the transmission of such diseases, they do provide some minimal level of protection. And that is why I answered "No" to the question.
36, Spanish Fort, ALI'm a proud father of two beautiful kind hearted girls that mean the world to me, keep me going, and unknowingly push me to better myself. Most all of my time is gratefully consumed with them.
21, Shelby, ALHey, I'm Gabe! I'm an INFP, a huge Geek, a multipotentialite, and a future Psyche Major / Business Minor (right after my Phlebotomy degree :P). I love talking about movies, my love language is Quality time, and I'd love to start my own business someday. Do you know your Meyers-Briggs Personality Type? What are some of your dreams?
