62, Portland, ORAs for myself . . . Johnny Cash music hits the mark . . . as do Alaska mountaineering treks, Italian food, and French cafe music. But the most important things are the fundamentals - faith, family, significant other, career, house, dog, being fit, and volunteer work for worthwhile causes. If anyone has all those things working at the same time, they've probably got a good life! My approach toward Catholicism would be regarded on this website as liberal . . . but outside of this website would qualify as moderate.
64, Baker City, ORHi, I am currently living in Eastern Oregon but planning to move later this year. I am well read and have a keen interest in Roman History. I really enjoy doing road cycling and try to stay active. I like to do some hiking in the mountains. I enjoy attending Mass.
70, Portland, ORI've been described as a "romantic idealist." I'm looking for a sparkling, dynamic, attentive woman who has the capacity to be my best friend. I enjoy a variety of activities, open to many others -- only a few things have scared the daylights out of me (and I'm not interested in trying them again! Thank you very much . . . ) I love good conversations with people with a good sense of humor.
66, Eugene, ORCradle Catholic. K through 12 education. Four siblings." The "Good Sisters of St. Joseph" afforded,fostered and insured "Paying,Loving Parents" we would have a meaningful education..or else!! I was well educated in the "or else. After graduation from a Christian Brothers High School, I entered the Christian Brothers Novitiate at Mont LaSalle, Napa, California. A Catholic Religious order, my aspirations of "Teacher" and member of a Religious Community was realized. I loved the Community life. The Priesthood! Always on my mind.. I started to explore the possibility of "Priest." Young, impetuous and unsure, I left the Monastery before taking my second Vows to think about it! On to St Mary's College, Moraga and into the Corporate Restaurant world..the '70s, in the Bay ..San Francisco!! Pretty amazing time!
72, Bend, ORGrew up in the City by the Bay, San Francisco. My catholic high school there was probably the greatest single influence on my subsequent life as an adult. It led me to volunteer for the Peace Corps in Africa, for example, and it led me to an early career as a teacher. When that ended, I found skills as an entrepreneur that served me well in starting several businesses, always leading my clients to "win-win" situations whenever possible. My marriage was to an Irish Catholic; she has since passed away. I raised my two daughters as a single parent, and they attended catholic schools in California. At the moment, having retired to Bend, Oregon, I find myself working with the Sisters of Mary of Kakamega, a religious order founded in 1932 in Kenya, now working in 4 East African countries and here in Oregon. Prayer and meditation are at the core of my life, and I try to follow the words from James 1: "Faith without works is dead." I work at the local homeless shelter, and at the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry. For fun, I have a Season Pass to downhill skiing at the nearby Mt. Bachelor; I play indoor tennis at the Athletic Club all year, and, weather permitting, I explore the great outdoors on my motorcycle, a very quiet BMW (not a Harley). My favorite evening pursuit is ballroom dancing, and I have competed and performed in 3 states over the past decades. My physical fitness is important to me, "Mens sana in corpore sano." Yes, I took 4 years of Latin. Don't we all? My two daughters live in Los Angeles, but we talk on the phone several times a week, and we fly back and forth on the non-stop service available. It's an easy commute. Having tried the generic dating sites, I slowly realized that my search was not just for an attractive woman, but for an attractive Christian woman, even better, one with a Catholic appreciation of why we are here on earth. Thank you for having read this attempt to say so much in a few words, and I hope to hear from you.
