35, Ypsilanti, MILife is meaningless without Jesus and his Spirit. He makes himself so present. I'm just trying to figure out what his ultimate plan is for me. I believe he is calling me to step beyond myself to live for another and eventually for a family. I enjoy thought provoking conversations filled with humor, perhaps over a glass of a good cab or malbec. I really enjoy being physically active. This is how I spend a lot of my free time. I love rock climbing (indoors, mostly), and Capoeira. On the other hand, I also find ideas and cleverly used language compelling, so I like to learn about philosophy and technology and to read good books (Chesterton, ftw). I also enjoy anime, manga, video games and retro cartoons though they don't take a lot of my time these days. Cooking is fun, especially when it is done for others, and even more when it is done with others. I don't eat out very often, but I do appreciate "haute cuisine" from time to time and I'm always interested in trying new things. I spent a year in seminary. It was great, but it turns out that God isn't calling my to be a diocesan priest. I'm still grateful for all the friends I made and the growth I experienced there. I also spent a few semesters in Japan when I was studying Japanese. The thought of spring cherry blossoms and summer festivals still makes me nostalgic.
31, Ann Arbor, MIHi, I'm Peter. I enjoy video games, tabletop (board) games, bicycling, sailing, swimming, and simply relaxing with a good book. I have an active imagination, especially when it comes to a good book! I am REALLY into tabletop games. I have an ever-growing collection, I watch every episode of TableTop, and I host a weekly game night for friends and senior citizens. I am loyal to and protective of my friends, no matter the cost. I believe honesty to be one of the most important aspects in a relationship. If you have something to tell me, say it straight to my face without worrying how to spare my feelings. I very much prefer not to relocate but to stay where I am, as I have a solid roof over my head, a good job, and a parish in which i am very involved.
42, Ann Arbor, MII'm certainly spontaneous and fun-loving. I enjoy being in the beauty of His creation; especially the oceans, mountains and forests. Deep wilderness=deep prayer! I am a missionary at heart and long to pour out my life in missionary work. I am in the process of starting a missionary formation center...Guadalupe Gardens...in Nicaragua. Our response to JP II and his call to the New Evangelization has inspired me for years...especially his encyclical 'Mission of the Redeemer'. I've put my hand to the plow... I can appear quite pensive and incredibly serious when people first get to know me. However, my 'hard shell' is easily penetrated with a little love and humor. First impressions are true: I am a thinker (studied philosophy and in the process of getting my Master's in Theology) and I am very serious when it comes to my faith and the core issues of life and the spiritual battles we're facing. Serious, but joyous! I am in love with LOVE...the Giver of all good things!
59, Ann Arbor, MIDevout Catholic - if you use phrases like "er, yes it's not in the Catechism, but it's in the "spirit" of Vatican II" we prolly wouldn't get along. Starting to get a little gray, but I told my hair that was o.k. as long as they all stayed put just where they were, and seems like they are all o.k. with that. I noted I don't eat out often, but I'd like to, it's one of the reasons for signing up here. I've been told by some people that I have a good sense of humor. Exercise often, typically during lunchtime at work when I can. Im in pretty good shape, most exercise is aerobic (elliptical , bike, etc). I like (good) beer, and I do drink, but typically limit my drinking to weekends/holidays/vacations. I have dabbled in Catholic apologetics, both on-line and elsewhere, and have learned quite a bit of doctrine/Catholic history through my study. Favorite EWTN show is The Journey Home. I attend a charismatic parish but being charismatic (or not) is not a big concern. I am a Catholic that is charismatic, not the other way around, and its not essential by any means. I believe the doctrine of papal infallibility would not be so strictly defined, but would extend to *all* matters a pope teaches on (including all his Super Bowl picks) , if all popes were Polish. My favorite saint is St. Bubba, who is the patron saint of Lost Fumbles. I have a pretty good job, also I have a mentally ill brother who I kind of look after he lives at a group home but I handle his finances, look after some of his needs, etc, - so moving out of SE Mich is just not going to happen. I have a number of family members in the area who wouldnt want me to leave either. However, I have no problem with driving 2-3 hours to see someone/take them out to dinner/etc if it looks like it would be fun.. Dunno where signing on to this site is going to lead to, but just going out with friends (as much as I like them) is getting a little old. Im a college football fan and Saturdays this coming fall you will find me at Ann Arbors main cathedral, Michigan Stadium. I realize this is a kind of stream-of-consciousness information dump, and if you are an English teacher you are probably really appalled right now, but Im a computer geek, for crying out loud, you should be happy I can write at all. One last thing, I used to have to wear a tie every day at work, but its strictly jeans/casual now, and I love it. Im pretty casual.
37, Flushing, MIBorn and raised Catholic in the mitten state! I love being Catholic, and I love the richness and depth of the faith. I'm in the midst of planning and leading retreats for youth on a traveling ministry team similar to the National Evangelization Team. My interests can be described as meat and potatoes.... with a little parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. If you know the reference, you get bonus points.. I'm kind of a guy's guy who can work on cars, shoot guns, talk rock and roll trivia, play guitar, but turn around and talk about what's happening in the Church, saints, or your latest endeavor in arts and crafts.
24, Grand Blanc, MII am Catholic and love to play music whenever I can for mass and adoration. I lived in a formation house for young men which aided in my personal prayer and spiritual life. I am really close to my brother and have thought about different vocations that could be options for me.
72, Ann Arbor, MII enjoy my hermitage (a cabin on a lake ). I am blessed with 3 children and 14 grandchildren. My family is my wealth and my joy. I am a charismatic, ecuminical, roman catholic christian who is cynical, opinionated and a bit of a curmudgeon. I like mysteries, entertaining movies, walks, day trips, estate sales, people watching and good company. I also enjoy card and board games. I am looking for a best friend and then we will see what happens. I am a good listener and a night person not an early bird.
42, Ypsilanti, MIHave you ever asked "Are there any good men out there anymore?" Well here is one of them. I am here looking for one of the good women out there, hopefully you. Caring, loving, understanding. These are the words which describe me. My aunt told me that my young 2nd cousin asked her one time on their ride home after visiting "Why isn't Jason married? He is so pleasant, nice looking, and has good hair." I thought that was so cute and I was humbled by her observation. It got me thinking and it made me step back and evaluate my self perception. I realized that she was absolutely right. I don't need to apologize for who I am. It's awesome how children tell it like it is. I now embrace my qualities which make me one of the "good men." If you really want a "good man," here I am. Along with this, I have withstood extraordinary challenges in life. Because of this, I have extraordinary character, perseverance and compassion. I have been blessed with a very kind heart and very good values. I feel things deeply. This helps me be compassionate and very loving. On the lighter side of life, I am a fun person who has a good sense of humor and knows how to have a good time. I get along with others easily. I am friendly, and extremely loyal.
38, Ypsilanti, MII am a 38 year old never married, devout Catholic. I enjoy going to new restaurants and movies.I also enjoyed biking and hiking in my free time, and occasionally miniature golf game is fun also. My mom and Dad have been the most influential in my life and spiritual upbringing.
29, Saline, MIHi, I'm Andrew. I am the type of person that seeks out challenges, in every aspect of life. I love strategy games like chess, and sports like tennis, soccer, and basketball. I also enjoy going to movies, riding my bicycle, singing and hanging out with my friends. I have never been the type of person that goes to parties all the time, but I can be a very friendly and caring person in a more quiet setting. One thing I found as a student is that I really enjoy tutoring other people, because helping someone understand a subject that they were struggling with is a very rewarding experience. In my experience, life is the most joyful when I am serving others.

36, Ann Arbor, MIFirst I should say that I'm really grateful for my Faith. I've grown deeper every year with every group of friends since high school. And it never gets old and dry! I'm definitely only interested in meeting someone with the same Christian morals and values, so I'm happy for a site like this! I'm lucky to be the youngest in my family of 6, most of whom really helped form me in the Faith. I've had really good influences from my siblings growing up, and I got to watch their lives unfold years ahead of mine. I've formed really deep relationships with some of them; I really appreciate deep relationships! My career is in nutrition, natural health, and chiropractic. I have a lot of passion for the whole topic, and I'm always interested in food! I like figuring out how to create interesting dishes. I especially like making healthy desserts that taste like unhealthy desserts! Great food is always fun, and healthy food makes people happy :):) I love to play! Indoors, outdoors, whatever (although I have my limits when it's below freezing! My newest hobby is volleyball. I love all kinds of things: hiking, mountain biking, college football, making kombucha tea, watching fireworks, camping....
