51, North Myrtle Beach, SCJust coming off a very long, arduous, and draining project--a United States Senate campaign. While I am tempted to say everyone should run for the USS at least once, such a campaign can extract costs one would not willingly pay. I am glad the campaign is over, and am now on another campaign trail--to find my bride! Professionally I have a broad, eclectic background: I am a dually-disciplined, Licensed Professional Engineer; a certificated (yes, that's the FAA's terminology!) Commercial Pilot; an Instructor Pilot (aka Flight Instructor, but IP sounds so much better than CFI!); and have been a political consultant or candidate full-time during three election cycles in the past decade. When The American Conservative quoted one of my campaign aides as saying I was the smartest guy he knew, I suggested my friend needed a wider circle of friends! That said, I am at least as bright as the average bear, and I have been blessed by Almighty God with the ability to learn and retain knowledge and information. Philosophically, I'm strongly in the Paleo-Con camp, but w/o ANY partisan chauvanism--sometimes the best way to take on a neo-con is as a BlueDog! Governor Wallace was right, as was PJB in his final campaign! I am convert to the Faith, and you'll likely find me casting my shadow on a church at least once a day. I have with an INTENSE interest in gov't and the political process--and can cook a mean cari lumbu. To relax, I'd rather sit down at my piano for half an hour than sit on a couch, ... or maybe I'll take a five-minute walk to the Atlantic, which is a good way to say one's rosary late at night. I am passionate and intense about anything I see to be important.Sans political campaigns, I don't play games, and have a low threshold for games and bovine scatology. I am intensely loyal, and expect the same. I am a realist (what would you expect from an engineer/pilot?), yet very much of an idealist and optomist. I am an eternal romantic, and AM on the campaign trail to find my bride!
39, Piedmont, SCHey. My name is Jeff. I was born and raised in Michigan, but have lived in South Carolina for the past ten years or so. I'm an architect and work for a mega-engineering firm designing manufacturing facilities. I'm also a health and fitness coach. I'm funny and smart, a philosopher and adventurer, analyst and traveler, athlete and writer. I'm creative and can build most anything. I'm definitely outdoorsy and love to fish and hike, but I consider myself a city boy at heart and could thrive in the big city as easily as anywhere else. I'm always aware, always thinking and analyzing my experiences, surroundings, and relationships. I'm up for a challenge. I like good intellectual conversations, but am not above stupid humor. I have a gift for calling a spade a spade, but in a diplomatic way. I'm political, but generally quiet about it, since being a libertarian from a car town will stir up controversy, and I'm a non-confrontational kind of guy. I have a lot of close friends, though quite a few of them aren't geographically close. I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic schools from kindergarten through college. I have an older sister who lives in Detroit and a younger brother who lives in Florida, and I've split my time among those places and South Carolina lately. My parents are both in Catholic ministry. My dad is an ordained deacon and works full time as the pastoral associate of his parish and my mom is a Catholic blogger and writer for Catholic new sites.
49, Fountain Inn, SCI am a full-time artist, who has built his own house/studio. I used to be a computer application/web developer and before that a toy/product prototyper. I am a problem-solver, intelligent and I can be funny even just a little bit each day. Oh, the beard is gone, at least for now.
87, Elloree, SCI have 9 children and the 5th is the eldest. I know the secret of the Holy Grail. Have been self employed most of my life and traveled throughout Mexico and the Orient. Lived in the Mountains, Santa Fe and lived on a yacht Charleston, South Carolina. Connie lost our battle of 23 years from cancer, July 2007. We had Nine Interior Design Stores and Imported Fine French and English Antique Furniture. I wrote "Choices" a cathartic autobiography Attended Marmion Military Academy, owned by the Benedictine Monks. Decorated Combat Officer, Korea Philadelphia spent eight years with the Sisters of St. Joseph. Owned Environmental Research Company and a Home Construction Company. Had a stable of Arabians. At 21, I was a 4th Degree Knights of Columbus. Met Valerie on this site in 2011. It was a LDR (600 miles) We married October 2012. A honeymoon to Ireland catapulted us on our life's journey. March 23rd 2013 while on a business trip I was notified that Valerie had an accident at home and died. The funeral service was on Good Friday. What can I add to that horror and the sorrow? I have been cooking for more than 50 years and bake a fantastic Baklava Cheesecake. Favorite dinner is Rack of Lamb (rare) with a nice bottle of Wine and Classical music. I stand upright, hold my head high and will never be a victim, but will always attack life with vigor and dignity.
29, Greenville, SCAll bow down for the mans prayer. "I am a guy, I can change, if I have to, I guess." lol. I like the out doors, having adventures, and taking life to seriously, which happens way to often these days. I live pretty simply really. I am always ready to learn a trade or new skill. If you want to know more drop me a line.
24, Moore, SCGood day, miss. Well, you must wish to know who and what I am and so I shall attempt to describe myself. I am a Southern Catholic. By that I mean I have family roots here going back centuries, and so am immersed in what it is to be a cultured Southerner, while being in a family that only became Catholic in the past thirty years. And so I am highly old fashioned in my approach to relationships. But do not let that scare you, because my observation has been that it is really the Esposita who is in charge of the home and family. If the man has the final say, it is only because he is allowed it. The truth is, the men of my family are warriors, and always have been. Our mindset is highly militaristic, and we love order, discipline, strength, and honor - though living up to those ideals is a challenge we all too often fail to overcome. So that's just a glimpse into my values and mindset, which tied together with my Faith, make me more zealous than most. As for actually being a soldier, I have every intention of getting back (long story) in the military - once the U.S. Military has a change in management - and becoming an instrument of justice. For that matter, it would be a huge plus if you come from a military family. In my hobbies and other interests, I certainly do qualify as a nerd, though I probably do not give the impression initially. Really, the main reason I love science fiction and fantasy as much as I do is because there are ever so many very Christian elements to it, and I have a great fondness for symbolism and allegory. Oh, but there is so much to talk about there... Politically, I would certainly fit in the category of entrenched conservatism, but with the caveat that it is built around and tempered by Church teaching, that is to say, I am conservative because I am Catholic. As an update, I am now attending the Franciscan University of Steubenville to finish my history degree, so I will not be home for some time. So, for the time being, this is all I can say. If it is Our Lord's will, you may be the one to walk with me down the long road to where our purpose reaches its ultimate fulfillment in the Kingdom of Heaven. May He protect and keep you, always. Amen. Do drop me a line if you'd like to see what else is under this layer of militarism and politeness. I promise I'm not a flat character, in the literary sense. ;)
23, Pawleys Island, SCHello, my name is Tom and I am living and loving life! I am a very optimistic person who enjoys sharing energy with others. I am a recent graduate of Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina with a marketing degree and PGA golf professional certification--that means I can give you golf lessons, at least teaching you how to make the right swing! In my free time I enjoy playing guitar and golf as well as doing anything outdoor related. I especially love relaxing at the beach. If I were to describe my personality, I am an introverted-extrovert or extroverted-introvert on any given day. This means that I enjoy being around people and socializing but I also don't mind sitting back and spending the day relaxing in peace and quiet too!
65, Gaston, SCI am a honest and caring person. i am shy at first but believe that a true relationship starts with a real friendship. I enjoy reading. playing golf and watching movies.
55, Moncks Corner, SCHello . I try to live simple , within my means , without drama . I work for a living , and I expect honesty in relationships . I enjoy the outdoors and simple things .
25, Greenville, SCI look forward to someday having my own story to tell. Ernest Hemingway wrote, "In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled, unused." I have never forgotten that quote. Different aspects of people have influenced different aspects of my life. The epistles of St. Paul have given me encouragement and feelings of warmth in times of trouble: he often speaks of our union with Christ in both death and rebirth. These writings remind me to unite my suffering with that of Christ, always remembering the Life to come if I "finish the race" by the grace of God. St. Louis de Montfort, along with some other saints, present to me the idea of being a brilliant artist while being faithful to God; I have an admiration for writers and enjoy learning of their backgrounds, but often find disappointment in discovering their promiscuity and lack of Faith. St. Louis de Montfort was gifted with artistic talents (poetry, wood carving, and music) and used it for the sake of portraying the beauty of God and evangelization. Finally, I often derive inspirations of courage in fictional heroes. This may sound lame, but...oh well, I say it unabashedly! It is a valid point if you examine it: Spider-Man has always been a personal favorite of mine (definitely my man-crush if I had to choose one), for instance. The message of Spider-Man 2 (the film, of course) is: "Sometimes, in order to do what's right, we have to give up the thing we want the most." A very potent message to be sure, and undoubtedly relevant to a practicing Catholic in today's world. Consider another example in the character of Ebenezer Scrooge: here we find a character deeply rooted in sin and morosity, seemingly without hope. But, by the grace of God, he repents of all his wrong-doings and focuses the rest of his life doing good. These characters, though fictional, iterate true ideals which have the potential to enlighten us in dark periods.
59, Santee, SCready to explore friendship leading to marriage similar to the best of those that I experience with my immediate family, friends and cousins while visiting them around the USA and Eastern Europe..look forward to visiting or living in Eastern Europe.
22, Aiken, SCI am a sports journalist currently covering high school athletics in the Aiken/Augusta area in South Carolina. I'm a Yankee originally from New Jersey, and I graduated last year from St. John's University in NYC. I grew up Catholic, but I fell out of it in high school. For the past year, however, I've been going back to Mass every week and reintroducing myself to faith in God. It's really helping me improve my outlook on my life and God has given me purpose. I'd like to find a nice Catholic girl, especially here in the Bible Belt.
