56, Forest Grove, ORMy greatest joy is using the talents that God gave me. I am the father of two great children, ages 24 and 28. My son is married and I have one granddaughter. I sing in church, leading the music at Mass. I run almost every day and direct road races. I am involved in a community theatre, as an actor and a set designer/builder. I am actively involved in my parish and the community beyond. I have a Master's Degree in Pastoral Ministry and am discerning if God is calling me to be a permanent deacon. I try to be a whole person, developing my body, mind and spirit. I have been running for 42 years. I read constantly, both books and magazines. I pray daily and read books on spirituality and theology (but also enjoy a good action movie). My Catholic faith is important to me. I love to tell stories and I have a great sense of humor. I believe in hard work, but love to play.
56, Portland, ORI am most passionate about my faith and the Church. I do everything with my parish that a lay minister can do. Helping others is second and I am third to the other two. My hope is to be married in the Church and to have a soulmate to share the rest of my life with. I have 4 college degrees & will start on a 5th next year. I am in good health and people all the time think I'm 10-15 years younger than my chronological age. I feel that way myself. I am interested in a soulmate in the 30-40 year age range, more or less (I'm a little flexible for the right person) and would seriously consider having another child. I have one son, who is 19 and lives on his own. I've never been married (yes, already been to confession for that) and can marry in the Church. I enjoy family, friends, cooking and travel. I love opera , plays & movies. I speak Spanish, Russian, German, Polish and Latin, of course Dominus Vobiscum! David
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

49, Beaverton, ORHello to that special one hiding out there, I'm long divorced, with joint custody of my two "almost" perfect kids, a girl 12 and Son 10. As any parent would expect they keep me running the whole weekend when they're with me. Typically biking, swimming, maybe some tennis, but we're all much better at ping pong :-) On the weekends that their with their Mother, I usually enjoy doing some home improvements, or yard landscaping when weather permits, which hasn't been very often yet this soggy year.
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!

21, Hillsboro, ORI am currently a junior at Portland State University majoring in Health Sciences and studying Pre-Med as my pre-professional track. I am the president of the Wrestling Club and a student officer of both the Catholic Student Association and the Pro-Life Club at PSU. After I graduate, I wish to go medical school and become a medical doctor and work in primary care (family medicine). I love helping and serving others in a way that helps them heal, develop, and improve as human beings, which is part of the reason why I believe God is calling me to become a doctor. I am also a member of the Newman Center at PSU (PSU's Catholic Campus Ministry) and my experience at the Newman Center has been one that I am very grateful for. I am very passionate about my faith and I really enjoy having a community like the Newman Center that has enabled me to grow in my faith while in college.
