66, Portland, ORMy two oldest children have finished college, and are out in the world. My youngest is almost there. I am upgrading and remodeling my home. I would like to finish my degree requirements. I read a lot, exercise, and help my brother on the farm. I would like to start some kind of volunteer work, visit children, take a few photos [ film guy way back, I was recently given the loan of a digital camera ]. It is strange not being responsible for anyone else after all those years. I would like to re-enter the "life of the mind" , go to the beach and mountains again, and just have a little time "on the road". I have always been an intensely family oriented guy. Since my youngest started football, I have had "empty arms syndrome". I am conservative in politics. I have a contemplative streak, and can sit watching nature for hours. I owned and raced motorcycles when young, and would like to see some races again, and perhaps ride again. Even through all the trials, God has been very good to me. I've tried to make clear to my children how important John Paul II was to the Church and the world. I managed to get my two oldest through Catholic schools.. While married, our kids were home schooled, and had opportunities to meet priests and nuns in all sorts of settings, not just at church or school. I guess a good description might be that I am at loose ends now after all those years of scrambling every day, House is way too quiet now! I tend to get very intense in discussions of morality, ethics, politics, and standards. Though I've been out of touch for so long, these are fascinating times in which to live,
67, Medford, ORCatholic Revert after 46 years of searching and struggling to find what was available to me the entire time. Currently in my 10th year of recovery from alcoholism. My greatest signature strength is Spirituality and St. Francis is my model. Currently retired from Registered Nursing after 40 years and now coaching clergy and laity in spiritual transformational change. I have been divorced for 20 years and kept myself too busy with career and family for a relationship. It has alarmed me how many people do not accept the BIG 7 questions. If spiritual growth, maturity and grace are important in your life, we should talk. God bless you...James
32, Portland, ORI am a student at the University of Portland after serving in the US Army for five years. I have learned how to look at what happens in life and see the positive roles that come with each lesson. In my off time, I love exploring the area around me. Whether that's the city I'm in or the country outside, I am an explorer and I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things. I believe you can never stop learning from the world around you. I am an Eagle Scout, I believe in telling the truth and doing what is right, even though it's hard or not the most popular choice to make. I love whitewater rafting, skydiving, I enjoy roadtrips and getting away to just relax.
48, Salem, ORI am a recent widower, who is passionate about the Church and am doing everything in my spiritual ability to raise my teenage daughter with the zeal and passion for the Church and our Blessed Mother.

43, Portland, ORI love to think and feel deeply. I am a natural Meyers-Briggs INFP personality type... a very Intuitive, iNtroverted, Feeling, Perceiving individual. I have volunteered nearly 600 hours over the course of 3 years on a suicide hotline, and worked at a drug and alcohol treatment facility, in the hope of making a difference in the lives of others.

47, Woodburn, ORI am passionate about helping people come to know God's will in their life and take the steps to live that reality. I believe that God has given us all the talent we need to do anything we feel we are being called to. I am an avid life long learner. I have studied Latin, piano, and am currently interested in applying the science of expertise to college music majors. To that end I started going to a toastmasters club near me. As a small business owner I don't often feel like I have an y leisure time. It becomes too easy to forget about down time when there is one more thing I could be doing to build my business.
50, Portland, ORHey! I am a revert after 30 years as an Atheist. I'm pretty determined to remain a faithful Catholic. Having been essentially a selfish pagan I never got married because I had figured it would be a bother. I now understand the beauty of the sacrament to help me to be who the Lord wants me to be.
28, Beaverton, ORHello and peace be to you. I'm a bit skeptical of this online dating thing, but I'm open to God's will and if He chooses to use this as the mode of meet a good & holy woman, than I'm not one to object. My faith is a huge part of who I am and is a daily part of my life. I try to make it to mass a few days a week as well as praying the divine office. I'm seeking someone that is willing to work as a team to help each other strive for heaven and for God's will in each other. Few things about me: I love to cook and I am pretty good at it, if I may say I am a huge goof. I love having a laugh and joking about and being able to bring a bit of happiness to others I'm also a big sports fan, in particular Oregon State.
38, Portland, ORHi, so I like to hike and do outdoor things like that. I like a good adventure. Whether that's a trip to the store or the beach. I could spend every day at the beach btw. Also the mountains. I am a open book and don't need to hide anything, so ask away. I like to laugh and joke around. I'm very serious when it's time to be. I've actually been liking the trivia questions on here from you ladies, please keep it up. Lol! I enjoy children, especially energetic ones. More pets the better, cause pets are fun. My music taste is a little bit of everything, depends on my mood. I like to be friends first or just someone to hang with. If 2 people like each other, the relationship will naturally follow. I'm a bit of sci-fi geek. I like Star Trek, StarGate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica. I enjoy a conversation, like analyzing events. Not really into gossip. Debate is awesome! If done right though lol! I like to eat Vegan or plant based. I don't expect the same from you. It's tough sometimes, but know this type of diet is beneficial for me. I love a date with conversation and tea or coffee. Talk about anything and everything. I like tv, but normally it's cause of sports for me. I haven't watched a show consistently for a long time. So I'm not up to date on current popular shows. I like to read my Kindle. I have The Bible on it, which is cool! My body is short and full of love btw. Lol! I'm broader in the shoulders. It's strange, I have like 31 inch waist, where a medium top, and weigh like 190 pounds. I exercise with kettle balls and a yoga mat. If you know a good joke, please write it. I like a good chuckle. I am easy going and fun. We could be in a room all day and laugh cause I'm that redonkulous. It's cause I'm missing a chromosome or something like that, JK lol! I want to get know you for all that you are and you were, and you want to be. I'm a man that wants to be free and hopefully you do too. Free from our sin and judgement. I want my journey with whom I can call my wife, my baby, my rock and bestest friend. Thanks for reading this ridiculously long, put you to sleep, Lord of the Rings type intro. Hope all is good with you and be blessed be awesome!
26, Salem, ORMy faith is the most important thing in my life. I'm kind of shy person but I like to make new friends. I think every day is a good day no matter what.
