58, Steubenville, OHI see ladies talking about guys breaking their heart, not changing, behaving badly, etc... I'm not a worldly handsome playboy but a blessing, a slim-athletic convert to the Catholic faith, deep and serious, childlike and fun, adventurous, caring, communicative, faithful, spiritual, romantic, compassionate, gentle and humble of heart! I make changes for the sake of my relationships. People really enjoy my gentle yet strong voice and my gift of prayer. It is natural to see someone as not being quite what we want. Marriage isn't just the perfect combo of what we think we want. It's highest calling is to encourage the our mate to be holy. The old adage stands: "Don't judge a book by its cover." What if we give someone a chance despite what we initially think? What if we open ourselves more to supernatural grace to what God would have us be and do. A seemingly less desirable or "immature" person may have an amazing story and may have grown exponentially despite many hardships. Perhaps we are the loving instrument that would inspire, bless, help, encourage, nurture, and make the other person strong and blossom to become an awesome member in the Body of Christ. God is big, and he might have your soul-mate a mere excursion away! Please don't just be "practical" and close off a great guy. I just happen to have made my temporary home in Steubenville because I enjoy the affiliation with Franciscan University. I'm able to move in a heartbeat. Playing sports, being with family and friends, being a pundit for God and conservatism, going on pilgrimage, gardening - I lived off the land for a whole year once!, home repair and landscaping, playing on my baby grand piano. I've performed at churches, sharing published compositions. Worked with the handicapped and Habitat for Humanity. Spent time discerning the priesthood, so I haven't dated much. I think that my lonesomeness shows and I don't make a good first impression. My folks are gone, my family members aren't Catholic. So I would be blessed to have a helpmate with whom we can share the Good News & the beauty of the Church. I feel that I'm a good communicator (and have incorporated self-help books, spiritual direction and prayer to improve) but the devil often seems to get in the works. Lord, help us not to hang onto some judgment or misunderstanding that would block the bigger picture of who someone is and ruin what you would have wanted.
64, Steubenville, OHI was married for over twenty years but things did not work out. My marriage was annulled awhile back. My life is presently in need of God and someone to help keep Him there. From my marriage I have to two grown step-children which in my heart are mine and three grandchildren of which I have the same feelings. I am happy in my life but feel God is asking more of me. What is it, is the question and I am seeking different avenues to find out, you may be the answer. I am a man of simple wants and desires, a giver who is in need of someone to aide me in my giving. My family is small but very important to me and would be a major part of any relationship I should develop. I am honest, trustworthy, funloving, independent, easy to get along with, supportive and loving. My tastes in activities are very open but sports and some water activities(such as swimming) are on the bottom of the list. There may be more to me than I know, ask me if you would like to know more I'd be very happy to talk.
40, Steubenville, OHI am a man who loves Jesus and His Church. My faith is integral to my life. I converted to the Catholic Church in 2002, and if you only read this far know that the Catholic faith is an amazing treasure, embrace it! I have a number of interests. I like hiking and kayaking, going to the movies and the theater, to read and play card games. I love spending time with people and good conversations. I love travel, photography (I photograph weddings as a side job) and the culinary arts. I enjoy learning about life and experiencing other people and their culture. I've been pretty fortunate to have traveled as much as I have, I still can't believe the places I've been. For instance, by dumb luck I ended up (The photo of me, in the header image) at the Augustiner Beer Garden in Munich, Germany on the day that Germany beat Argentina in the Quarterfinals of the 2006 World Cup. Looking back, my life has been quite adventurous so far and I'm grateful for each day God gives me and every adventure He takes me on. However, I've come to realize the value of day-to-day life (probably the bigger adventure in some respects). Someday I hope to learn how to fly a plane, climb a mountain, run a marathon and scuba dive, but I also hope, even more so, that someday I will have a family to go to Mass with, to pray the rosary with, to eat dinner with, to laugh and cry with.
34, Steubenville, OHAs a senior in college graduating in spring, it's time to spend some time on here. I grew up in a Catholic home and was homeschooled. I was preserved from both sin and success, and my adult life has been marked with overcoming both my fear and my limitations. After ten years of working in garden centers, I walked away from everything I knew and went out west to Ohio to pursue a bachelor's' in theology and a minor in philosophy at Franciscan University so that I could better serve the Church as a layman. I love philosophy, theology, and good discussions about the meaning of life. I also enjoy the country, the outdoors, and gardening. I am not big into formal events and prefer a T-shirt and jeans; I am known around campus as the master of cutting the sleeves and collars off of T-shirts to make good looking cut-off "bro-tanks" and feel they are more authentic than anything I could buy in a store. I do stand-up comedy routines at events such as parents' week while studying abroad to random household coffeehouses and parties. There is a lot more, so feel free to send me an emote with a message, even if you just type "hi." I will respond to the smiley too but I know that the smiley by itself is the F2P emoticon.
33, Sardis, OHLet's see...I'm a man of few words, but I would say I'm pretty down-to-earth. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, sports, coaching, and living life. When I am able, I like to golf, fish and work out. Relationships are important to me. I come from a fairly close-knit family with solid parents and three siblings, me being in the middle. The Lord is very important to me and is my rock. I am looking for someone who does their best to live their Catholic faith, is genuine, and likes to live life to the fullest.
59, Coolville, OHI'm an okay guy I guess. Most people find me easy going and relaxed - may be a bit to relaxed! I dont get much involved with other people telling them what to do and dont wan anyother telling me wha t to do.
61, Cambridge, OHWell, a little about myself. I am a full time farmer, raising corn and hay for lambs and beef cattle. I consider myself conservative politically, prolife, and believe in the Creator. More later
39, Steubenville, OHAppearance: I'm 6'0 feet tall with black hair and brown eyes. I'm not skinny or obese and my stomach is more keg than six-pack. Personality: I would describe myself as a Dominican Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati with many more flaws. I enjoy all things religious from silent retreats to festival of praises. I enjoy going out and having a good time; some good wholesome fun whether it be going to a ball game or going salsa dancing. I'm more of a listener than I am a talker when it comes to my personal life. With respect to theology, philosophy, sports, politics, etc... I'm more of a talker than a listener. Background: My family is from the Dominican Republic but I was born and raised in the US. My family is very important to me even though I don't see them as much as I would like. I grew up cultural catholic and attended CCD growing up but didn't really begin practicing my faith seriously until I was 24. I've discerned the priesthood for many years but realized that I am called to glorify God as a married man. I'm really easy going and I love to laugh and dance. Current: I'm currently renting the basement area from a missionary couple. I love living in a home with two beautiful children that keep me from sleeping in too long because they will come downstairs and wake me up.
24, Crown City, OHHello, first of all I want you to know I'm a sinner. I have a savior and my goal in life is to live everyday in and for Him. Anyone who tries to come between us will be cut off. Jesus is my true friend and by hearing how he lived and died for me, I cannot justify living my life for myself. That being said I am currently not what God wants me to be. I'm selfish, immature and I have to do all I can to receive grace because of my shortcomings. The sacraments are my life support I would hate to think of where I'd be without them. My faith used to be on the periphery, but things in my life have moved it to the center. My goal is to make everyone know how real Jesus is and to let them know the love of The Father and the life The Holy Spirit gives. Apologetics is my passion. My dream job would be to start an apostolate or radio station and spread God's word. The world has enough dead Catholics. I know I was one of them. But my life has been changed by the grace given to me. And I am eternally grateful. I have had a relatively normal life. I have done things I'm not proud of and things that I am too proud of. My ego is a very confusing thing and my struggle with the inner man has been difficult. But my goal is conformity with Christ. I want to spend eternity worshipping God in a way I can only imagine now. The beauty and power of God is veiled to us now, but I fear if we could really see what's going on at mass or any of the sacraments we'd die for joy. I enjoy people who love others and my deepest sadness is when I see people with no regard for others. My ultimate regret is that I have been that person and I am now striving for the Holiness that I need to see God with his grace I know it is possible and his grace is perfected in weakness so I know he wants to demonstrate his power in my life. God bless you and thank you for reading.
24, Cutler, OHHi my name is Jake. I look forward to peaceful evening after a good day of work. I look forward to challenges in my day to day because they are opportunities to grow and become a better person. this doesn't mean that I'm always persevering and conquering but I'd much rather be struggling to be better than to not try. Specifically what I'm talking about is relationships with ppl at work. I work construction with 3 other guys who've been doing it for 20 plus years, so I am trying to catch up with them as quick as I can to be a blessing for them and in return I have a much better day. God has taught me a lot about humility and being a servant, blessing those who curse you though I might not be cursed I will often times be a burden to my coworkers and when that happens I have to understand that the best thing I can do is try and bless that person, which is hard to do but when i do it good things always result from it.... So lately that's been my life is work and after that I normally go lift with one of my former players I coached in football and we try and exhaust ourselves and give each other everything we have which i think is such an awesome parallel to the gospel. Even though we're not doing Huge things for Christ by working out and giving our all for each other it's still gratifying to do it with Christ in mind. We work really hard and I love it. One of the things we try to avoid is being vain in our workouts, so how we combat that is by working so hard that we don't have time to look at ourselves in the mirror and it's really awesome. It's so rewarding at the end of it. We also try to pray and read scripture before workouts which might sound kind of crazy but life is pretty crazy and praying and reading really helps and I feel like that's what God wants us to be consumed with..... I love just having leisure time. I'm not saying that I'm always busy but I really like when I put in a full week and give an honest effort and then leisure time just feels that much better :) anything is fun honestly, watching movies is ten times better after a tough week, sitting on the porch and just listening to the birds and spring peepers if I'm out at my dads ( he lives out in the country) I mean I think with my significant other I would much rather do something outside together. Or anything with friends :)
25, Steubenville, OHHey there! If you are reading that means that you're at least mildly interested in me , which is in a step in the right direction haha. These things are always a little tricky to fill out... I have to find a way to tell you about myself without coming off self-absorbed or arrogant, so wish me luck! I am currently a student at Franciscan University studying psychology, I plan on working for the VA counseling veterans with PTSD. Both my father and step-father were soldiers and my heart goes out to that community. I still have a year and some change to get my bachelors, I have taken the scenic route in life since high school. I dropped out my freshmen year to pursue a vocation in the priesthood, discerned out a year after that after which I took a few years to do some soul searching. As far as hobbies go, I love to read, watch a good movie but my all time favorite pastime is enjoying a conversation with good friends. I am the oldest of 5 with a brother and 3 sisters, all which of I adore more than words can express. Family means the world to me and I couldn't imagine my life without a single one of them :) Don't know what else to tell you haha if you have questions or want to know more don't hesitate to message me. Ilook forward to talking with you :)
