64, Elmhurst, ILI am a gentlemanly, good-natured, kind-hearted,good-humored, and never-married single man. I believe and support all that Christ's Church teaches. I worked in computer programming for the same company for 36 and 1/2 years, and I just retired as of 02/01/14. I enjoyed my work and the people with whom I worked. I have a very active sense of humor, and I like to try to make people laugh (and perhaps some day I'll succeed.) I have a great appreciation for the gift of the Catholic faith which God has given to us.
65, Naperville, ILAt this point in my life I keep my eye on the big picture. I enjoy the simple things in life...nature's beauty as well as historical venues, culture, books, music, and a special interest in the automotive world and motorsport and design. Mixed in with all of this is a love of photography and digital imaging on my computer. Biking is something else I find fun and physically and mentally rewarding. A half hour fitness ride to an all day rail trail excursion. If you get to know me for any length of time you will also find that I am lighthearted or one to share wit or playfulness but that comes with knowing the other person. I also have reached a point in my life where the big picture also means considering everything in conjunction with God and a relationship with the Holy Spirit. When I reached my early 50s a family situation led me to this road of discovery and one that I hope to continue with God's grace and love. There is no other way. I remember watching Leo Buscaglia talking about love in the 80s. One of his many quotes... He must understand that if he is the world's finest plum and someone he loves does not like plums, he has the choice of becoming a banana. But he must be warned that if he chooses to become a banana, he will be a second rate banana. But he can always be the best plum.
66, Glen Ellyn, ILI retired about a year ago and I now do part time consulting work for an engineering firm in downtown Chicago. I enjoy working with technology and consider myself a geek! I even own several pocket protectors! (If you dont know what a pocket protector is I will explain it to you.) I also enjoy walking and cycling.

61, Elmhurst, ILMy catholic faith is an important part of my daily life. I am honest, sincere, and down to earth. I have a kind heart, and a loving soul... silly, serious. I am spiritually passionate about my faith. I am someone who appreciates the simple things in life, and I also enjoy exploring and trying new things, I consider myself a life long learner. I am kind, respectful, compassionate and understanding. I have integrity, values and morals, I try to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle. I'm active and don't look or feel my age. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, attending mass and being involved in church activities, and volunteering. Going out to dinner, watching a baseball or hockey game, watching an old B&W movie, reading a good book, antiquing and gardening. Walking, hiking and anything Wisconsin. I like to travel, I enjoy architectural tours and the modernist period.
62, Clarendon Hills, ILI enjoy being outdoors doing non-competitive activities with others such as hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing. I also enjoy being with family. As to my most influential experiences would be my graduate studies and the parenting of my children. More recently, my being an extraordinary minister at church has been quite influential to me.

80, Bloomingdale, ILMy background is a little different. I grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin north of Milwaukee. I am a graduate of Marquette University with a B.S. in Business and an Accounting major. I am a retired C.P.A. and really enjoy that kind of work. I lead an active life style. I stay fit by gardening and doing my own yardwork. I have solid family values but also like to be playful and have a good sense of humor. I have 5 children who are all happily married and 14 grandchildren. I like to travel and have been to Alaska, Poland, Hungary, the Cech Republic, Chile and Germany. German is my second language. I have worked extensively in Europe in the financial area. I like to hunt and fish. I have gardened for many years and raise vegetables, peaches, pears, aspargus and black and red raspberries. My ideal spouse would be a practicing Catholic who attends mass on a weekly basis. She does not have to have the same opinions regarding contraception and sex. I would hope that she is a reasonably good cook since I am not. She should like to travel but also feel comfortable just enjoying a glass of wine by the fire. If she likes to garden, that is a plus. Since I am a gardener, I would hope that she would enjoy using the products of my garden. I am planning to down size my house and yard so that I can engage in other activities. I expect that my gardening activities will be reduced when this occurs. I like to engage in outdoor activities including fishing and hunting. If she likes outdoor activities, that is also a plus. Last but not least, I would hope that she is particular about her appearance and looks.

66, Carol Stream, ILI'm a fun loving outdoors nature kind of guy. I totally enjoy observing nature and all of God's creation! When I travel, I'm also looking for places of natural beauty. One of my favorite outdoor sports is fishing, normally catch and release. I also love to golf, not very good at it, but when I can get the chance to play, I enjoy it. I do like to garden both flowers and veggies, with tomatoes being my favorite. I love taking walks along nature trails or at the Arboretum or at Cantigny. I'm a member at both. I am active most Monday and Wednesday evenings playing wallyball, volleyball inside a racquetball court. It's been a while since I played racquetball, but I'd love the opportunity to get back on the court and do that. And I love playing tennis, again it's been a while, but if you're up for the challenge, I think I would be a good match, well, maybe with a little practice. I also love golf.... I love to dance, whether it's fast with a little jitterbug or slow. I love most music, although I'm not into heavy metal, or rap. My love for music stems back to my early childhood, listening to the radio or vinyl records (remember them?). Ask me about the Serranaders, if you're interested in one of the main things I did in high school. I love being Santa at Christmas and Easter Bunny at Easter....ask me more....I love surprising my special love in all kinds of ways....and sometimes at unexpected moments because my heart goes that direction. I am very romantic and playful, funny...sometimes witty...and I love deep thought provoking conversation from time to time along with just having fun.
63, Bolingbrook, ILI was married for 42 years to a wonderful woman from the Philippines. She lost her battle with breast cancer last year. I love the Filipino culture and sense of family. I still have many in-laws in the Philippines who I am in contact with regularly. I enjoy travelling to the Philippines at least once a year to visit. I love my children and 10 grandchildren. I go to Mass almost every day. I love to travel especially to see my family in the Philippines but also love to see new places.
