65, Arlington, MAAs an intelligent, adventurous, Catholic man,I am very active and love the outdoors. As a US Marine traveled all over the Pacific and based in Hawaii three years. The mountains of New England bring peace and spiritual renewal when I climb them and I also cycle and work out frequently. As a faithful Catholic, I love visiting shrines and prayerful places, particularly St Joseph's Basilica in Montreal.Once a teacher, I appreciate a good discussion and I am an excellent listener. I enjoy fine dining,classical music,travel,deep conversation and humor. My outlook tends to be positive and I am very healthy and vigorous. Financially stable,thrifty and have no fear of commitment. My best friend's parents were married over sixty years and taught me volumes about the art of commitment without writing a single word. Please visit with a note and I promise you a wonderful response!
70, Roslindale, MAI was married at 21 and divorced at 25.I have a son who for the most of his life lived with me. I was the best man at his wedding.I became a workaholic but always had time for my son. At 40 I met this widow with two children. Not really what I was looking for at the time. However, I caught lightning in a bottle. She was my soul mate.We were together for 11yrs and married for 9yrs. We took all the children and the first grandchild on our honey moon. Her gift to me are those children. Therefore ,I have three children and we are all very close. There are six grandchildren and when all are together it is controlled chaos.The cat and I sometimes hide . My wife was ill for 4 yrs of a very debilitating disease. I retired to take care of her. I became proficient in the use and operations of complicated medical equipment, a talent I did not need.She was in Hospice and died at home with me. I give this info as an advisory.I was crushed at the loss of my wife.I do not know how much I have to give.My wife told me before she died to suck it up and go on. But there are days when things are OK and then everything goes into the pits.It does not last long and is getting less frequent.
82, Winchester, MAHelloBefore I compose a book length auto-biography, I think that I should first acknowledge a couple of potential show stoppers: 1- I'm 80 which, on paper, is probably way out of your age range. Fortunately, however, the game is not played on paper. I am in the 0.001 percentile on the bell curve, in great shape with excellent health, no ailments, no pills, a former 2h 42 marathoner, 120/70, athletic e.g., swim 3 4 X/week., 2- I am also politically conservative. I loathe Obama and I am pro-life. I tell you that because my l experience is that most women are liberal and in fact, very liberal According to Webster's, that should mean tolerance for other's opinions ..Sadly, I have found it almost always means the opposite - no tolerance. I realize that I've told you nothing about me, or why I think we might do O.K. If you are a little curious, Id be happy to give you the unabridged, unexpurgated, full seven page version. Oh, btw, as I am a very new member. I'll write a full bio. and put my photo out there in a few days. In the meantime. if you are a little curious, you can write me and you'll get the first fogliosJohn
64, Needham Heights, MAI'm 60 years young and widowed. I was married for 36 years to the love of my life who passed away from Cancer. I own my own computer and network services business and like to travel on vacation to many destinations including Europe and Hawaii. My faith is a very important part of my life and I thank God everyday for all the good things that he has done for me. I know that he put Denise and I together and gave us 38 wonderful years and now I have to trust that he will guide me into the next chapter of my life. I am currently dating a wonderful woman who I met on Catholic match a number of months ago. We just recently became engaged and are getting married this summer 2012. We were married on July 14, 2012. It was the feast of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha who will be Canonized in October of this year.
66, Franklin, MAI grew up attending Catholic schools (grammar school, high school, college), so the Faith has always been a major part of my life. In my early years we attended the traditional Latin Mass prior to the Second Vatican Council, and I am glad that the opportunity has been once again made available thanks to Pope Benedict XVI. I have always been concerned with world events and how we can influence them for the better by our activities and prayers, in particular by joining prolife groups and by saying the rosary for peace to ameliorate the tragic situations of abortion and war. I think that the Catholic Church has the solutions for most (if not all) of humanity's crises in her doctrinal and moral teachings, especially on the prolife issues (antiabortion, anticontraception, antieuthanasia), social issues (no divorce and remarriage, an end to economic exploitation through the just family wage and cessation of usurious practices by banks), and cultural issues (for example, respect for the dignity of the human person, which rules out pornography). I am also opposed to the mutilation of babies (an anticircumcision activist). I hold PhD degrees in philosophy and mathematics, teaching mathematics as a full-time lecturer at a university, logic as an adjunct professor at another college, and philosophy as an adjunct professor at a minor seminary -- all three institutions in Boston. I play classical piano and church organ, have earned a brown belt in karate, and like to do some gardening (growing herbs, decorative plants, attempting vegetables and berries). I have written or co-authored a couple of books on Catholic apologetics ("Why Matter Matters" and "Does the Bible Support Catholic Beliefs?"). I always wanted to get married and have children, but things never worked out that way, but now I am probably too old. I am hoping it is not too late, however, since I am rather deep into middle age, yet people have told me I could pass for 45 (not bald, still have hair that is mostly dark brown, though grayish on sideburns and beard/moustache, which I now keep trimmed).
65, Haverhill, MAI like the simple things in life like lying down on the grass at night and gazing at the stars. The complex things like how the cosmos was formed. I always wanted to be an astronomer until I found out I would have to work nights. I try to maintain good work-life balance so I have the time to spend with family, friends and activities I enjoy. I am always interested in continuously growing and improving mentally and physically. I enjoy being outside golfing, being at the beach, hiking in mountains, skiing, and photography. I have lived in Germany and have traveled to Scotland and Mexico. I also enjoy visiting museums and art galleries. Enjoy going comedy clubs, plays and the movies. My musical interests vary, I enjoy listening to Janus Joplin, Eva Cassidy, Billie Holiday, Candy Dulfer, and rock n roll J Giles Band, Steve Miller, Aerosmith, Billy Joel and Bob Seger. I have been described as being insightful, perceptive, sensitive, kindhearted and spontaneous. I would like to find someone that enjoys traveling and having an active lifestyle. Does this sound like you?
61, Needham, MAHello, I sense God most when I'm giving of myself to help others. I see a spiritual director about two or three times a year to help get a sense of God's call. In my spare time I like to visit family and friends, go to a restaurant, reading, photography, be on my computer, and just organizing my life. I guess I'm guilty of smiling and joking too much. Anyway, I'm pretty easy going, gentle, a good listener,and relish common sense (like Chesterton), But reason can get you so far. After that, faith must takes over. I am somewhat distrustful of the "world." Is that so bad? I am a work in progress. Our Lord's peace to you!
68, Braintree, MALife is meant to be JOYFUL and having a spouse only enhances our joys by sharing and caring! Enjoy all that the life has brought to me and trust each experience offers insight to bring more joy and peace to others and myself. Enjoy sharing, lightheartedness, dancing, biking, strolling, good movie, music, theater, singing, adventures, people, charitable works, sun, swim & sand, the seasons, humor,sports, gardening, your joys, etc. Many, many folks have brought me to this place, mostly our Lord.
68, Lowell, MAi have a passion for camping...I really enjoy the outdoors...of course like most people my mother had influence on me...my leisure time is being on the internet and playing texas hold'em..spending time with my 3 kids and 8 grand kids
83, Medford, MAI am a retired engineering professor; I stopped teaching part time in 2015. I am Irish, Catholic, a bit superstitious, and liberal in my politics. My two daughters are close and my four grand-kids seem to like me. My daughters claim I have a sense of humor but I am not noted for smiling; something that needs correcting. I am a serious Sunday painter, but will admit to no other vices, and painting absorbs a good deal of my spare time. I read general histories, usually about the Middle- Ages, but my favorite author is Evelyn Waugh and my favorite book is his war trilogy. I enjoy classical music, the Carpenters, Judy Collins, etc, and French caf songs and I watch an inordinate amount of television, usually PBS, Game of Thrones when it is on, and a decent movie if I can find one. I am partial to westerns. As for travel, my wife and I rarely left New England. However we were planning a Viking river cruise down the Rhine. That's still on my to-do list. Except for a few teaching awards, a satisfying consulting career, and a rich married life, I have little more to say for myself.
63, Wareham, MAI love motorcycles, boating, and fishing. You must love dogs as I have a dog. I love going to fairs, parades, festivals, and movies. I enjoy travel trailer camping and exploring any where in New England by camper , motorcycle, bicycle, and by boats. I am easy going, and spontaneous and am easy to get along with.
61, Marlborough, MAI'm a bit of a classic car guy.Even as a kid,loved hot cars,still own some today.Met a lot of Bruins back when #4 played,left a huge desire in me to play and watch and coach.Pat's make it easy to be a serious fan around here,never miss a game.Like to spend summer weekends camping with my pups,in front of late night bonfires.Love to be in the woods.Have a soft spot for post-punk stuff,progressive rock,but have eclectic tastes.Most of my family has moved to other parts of the country but I guess I'm a true New Englander,I enjoy the change of seasons.Hope to meet a woman that believes the way to grow older is by staying in shape physically.
