58, Elgin, ILI'm a down to earth guy with strong family values. Friends and family have always been important to me. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my lab Sam, working out with friends, or exploring new restaurants. My nature is casual; I enjoy most activities that involve spending quality time with another.
31, Aurora, ILI wear many hats. For one thing, I like wearing hats. For another, I also do a lot of stuff. I'm an organist and singer at a few parishes in the area -- that's my real passion, and it makes me happy. I write marketing copy -- that's what pays the mortgage (I bought a house three years ago). I'm a fake uncle (to my friends' three kids) and a real uncle (to my sister and brother-in-law's beautiful baby boy, who is objectively the best baby ever). You better bet I went crazy when the Cubs won the World Series! And I love the Blackhawks as well. (The Bears are OK, if they were better.) I love bicycling, singing, and taking walks through the neighborhood, and I'm always up for a good game of poker or Scrabble. What I'd love to do one day: * Become a full-time church musician * Appear on "Jeopardy!" * Take a nice, long road trip out west * And, of course, get married and have kids It's a quiet life, but it's a good one. And I'd love to have someone join me in it.
54, 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.
78, Hampshire, ILI am passionate about 1) Attending Mass each week and the ministries (Usher, Greeter and Eucharistic Minister) for which I volunteer. 2) My family: all 17 kids, 25 grandkids and 7 great grand kids. I enjoy being with them for all of the various family gatherings. 3) My vegetable garden and maintaining a nice yard for both the neighbors and myself. 4) The Knights of Columbus, I have been an officer since the day I joined 13 years ago. In 2014, I served on 34 Honor Guards. The most influential person in my life was my wife. We celebrated 50 years of marriage prior to her death in January 2011. I loved her a little more each day from the moment I first saw her. She was the joy of my life. She challenged me to be better and to do more. She supported me in all of our endeavors. We were there for each other in good times and those not so good. One desire of mine is to make other people smile, even strangers. I enjoy giving and receiving hugs. It is an important part of my social life. I am an excessive volunteer with an average of 25 hours per week. I want to remarry.
32, Loves Park, ILI am passionate about my job. I work at a Firestone working on cars. What I look forward to the most is hang out with my friends, and family and playing with my cat, Heathcliff. I am currently studying to becoming a Catholic. I was introduced to the Traditional Latin Mass by a good friend, and was hooked. Now I go every Sunday and sometimes on Thursday morning when I am off work. In my leisure time I am hanging out with friends or my family. Going to the movies, going mini-putting, or watching tv.
21, Wayne, ILHi, I'm Joe. I'm a dedicated Catholic attending community college, and as such, has very few connections with like-minded people my age. I'm still trying to figure out if this site is the right medium for a vocation, but hey, it wouldn't exist if it wasn't possible. I'm passionate about optimizing anything and everything, which has led me to bounce back and forth between Engineering and Business majors. I have considered consecrated life and visited a couple of orders, and to some extent the priesthood. I'm not sure how to define "actively" discerning, but I will always be open to whatever vocation God may call me to. Above all, I strive to be sincere in every thought, word, and deed. I sometimes drop the ball when it comes to responding to messages. I have a tendency to try to impress people, but I'm trying to eliminate that part of me (which is harder than I thought). I try to make being a nerd cool, and want to change the world using technology. Have a wonderful day!
25, Rockford, ILI enjoy making light of situations, I laugh at inappropriate times, I love having interesting conversations, I love people, and I love adventure! I enjoy casual first dates, because even if it is awkward and there isn't a second, at least there was some pro-activity, and maybe a fun story.

74, Elburn, ILExercise, rest, travel, visit children/grandchildren and of course the internet. I simply wonder how we lived without the internet for so many years. And yes, there was what was called DARPANET and INSTANET but ease-of-use, forget it. It took forever to learn how to use the system. I am an inventor, AUTHOR, father of 3 children and grandfather of four-of-a-kind, all girls.
