59, Pacific Grove, CA
My faith is important to me and is part of my daily life. I value kindness, integrity, decency, hard work, and honesty. I try and conduct my life that way. I'm a shy person who opens up to others after I get to know them. I like to laugh and my sense of humor opens up as I get to know others. I also tend to try and reflect on things before I speak or take action.
I am a college professor and writer, but have worked in various fields in my life. I am moderate to conservative in my views. I respect Church teaching, its leadership, and the value of human life. As a Catholic, I primarily have a conservative view. I enjoy daily Mass when possible. I do enjoy English as well as the Latin Mass. I value intellectual as well as non-intellectual pursuits. I have very broad interests in life. I enjoy meeting new people, places and ideas.
I grew up on a ranch and like the outdoors. Getting my hands dirty and making things grow are a part of me. My physical exercise is working with my hands in my garden and workshop. I am a hard worker and a person who believes in and works toward goals in life. I do like to hike and enjoy nature photography and charcoal sketching.
I try to respect people and expect the same in return. Dating is often difficult as one is putting oneself out there. As a Catholic Christian, I believe that if you aren't interested in a person, they are still entitled to be treated with respect.
