54, Dravosburg, PA
Dependable, loving, sensitive, sincere, humorous (often cynical), publicly/socially reserved/shy/self-conscious (introverted), hard-working project manager/engineer, very conservative (religious/political/sexual), very few close friends, quiet, tenacious, not "open" at first. (My political views are driven by Catholic social teaching.) I am physically fit, 5'11", 160-pound, father of 4 daughters. (28 - 34, all relocated, non-Catholic, one married.) Starting to gray. Not as "un-trustful and controlling" as temperament test might suggest. Way too conservative and Catholic/Christian for my extended family (all non-Catholic except my Godmother).
I enjoy small town living, children, non-winter outdoor activities (fishing, biking, hiking, canoeing, occasional camping), "local" travel, comedy, woodworking/crafts, home improvement, vegetable gardening, Sunday naps, hockey, and classic rock-and-roll. I can cook. I'm happy, sometimes lonely. TV service was discontinued in Nov 2007 without regret. I hope to never again have to dance in public (except a slow dance).
I am active in Knights of Columbus and Faith Formation (formerly "CCD"). Divorced in 1998; annulled in 1999. Unsuccessfully applied twice for the (Diocese of Greensburg) diaconate program late 2000s.
I chaired a Pro-Life program ("Rosebud") where the local Knights of Columbus council partnered with a parish to financially support a woman that Birthright counseled to continue her "unplanned pregnancy" (April 2008 - Mar 2014) - Six abortions averted. I serve on a Catholic School and a Knight of Columbus fundraiser Board.
Seeking "strong"/brave, "local", faithful, Caucasian (including Latino and Oriental), conservative, physically fit, thin or average build Catholic woman, preferably 52 to 55 years old that enjoys outdoor activities and Church participation. Open to profession and children - I understand the challenges of marrying a single parent (from experience, situation not involving contact with the father). I was probably more fun before I became a responsible parent. (Must be 7 of 7 in "Faith/Doctrines" and practicing the faith.)
I'm open to women initiating dates ("strong"/brave) - all of my first dates since my annulment were initiated by women (and I believe that they were their first dates since their divorce/annulment, too). I haven't successfully asked anyone to a first date since my wife, hence, I'm gun shy.
