60, Knoxville, TNI'm a SWM, never married, no kids, but open to both possibilities. I like to constantly learn and try new things and learn about new places and ideas. I do believe in the bulk of the Catholic Church's teachings. I don't believe in blindly doing as one's told, and I don't like the way the "faith" questions are stated. For instance, I don't have a problem with chasity before marriage, but not dealing with the issues of birth control and when life really starts is also wrong. The same is true for some of the other questions. I have a wide and varied number of tastes, including books, cooking, music, discussion groups, games, amusement parks, history, museums, airplanes, and sometimes gardening. I have had cats, dogs, fish, and an occassional other thing, but mostly cats. Please no ferrets or skunks---they stink! I try to keep an open mind, but never a blank one. I firmly believe in the golden rule. I am very loyal, but not to those I catch in a lie. I tend to be a pragmatic idealist and romantic, and I'm looking for someone who is mutually supportive in outlook. You'll find that I am pretty good with small children and animals. I'm more than willing to do the traveling and relocate, although I will be managing some rental property in my original home town of Memphis, TN which I have recently inherited along with some other things. My confirmation name is Patrick, although the ancestry is heavily Italian, German, and a dash of this and that.
67, Kingsport, TNMy father was the most influential person in my life. In my leisure time I like to read, listen to music, walk my dogs, go out with friends, visit local attractions, plays, and concerts. I look forward to retiring some day but I am so not ready yet.. I enjoy my job and the people I meet every day.
63, Knoxville, TNI have played men's softball on the same team for 31 years. Enjoy watching football and basketball on TV. I periodically attend live concerts in Knoxville and Atlanta. My hometown is Cincinnati, but I have lived in Knoxville since 1985 and plan to retire here. I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren, but life would be more fulfilling with a special lady to share life's daily challenges, conversation, meals, taking a walk, hiking, exercising, taking a boat ski ride, spending the day at Dollywood, or going dancing. I have taken line dance and East Coast Swing lessons but need a regular partner to get more proficient at swing dancing. I am a member of National Fitness Center where I enjoying taking group classes. I attend Mass every weekend at either All Saints or St. John XXIII.
63, Maryville, TNI've never been married in the church. I had an early "marriage mistake" that lasted about a year and then met and married for what I expected to be for a lifetime. It ended after 12 yrs. I only make this known because it seems to be of great importance at some time in any relationship and I didn't want it to shock anyone. I would have skipped this section if it would have allowed because I have no idea what would be of interest to folks and it's probably different for everyone who comes to this site.

She consumes my time when she is with me. She is in seventh grade at a Catholic school. I am retired but I know I also need to work to pay the bills.

66, Chattanooga, TNCherished, loved and honored by God. Being secure in this love helps me to unite my joy and suffering to Jesus in a redemptive way. Surely, the more one is in tune with this, the more perfectly one is able to love, in all the different ways: Agape, Eros, and Filial. My church and prayer group friends are important. My intention is to catch up on all those great spiritual books I have. I love to go to daily Mass when possible; Lunch with friends; Line dance at the Senior Center; and attend dance lessons, ie: Round and Western Square Dance; Contra; some ballroom like simple Swing and Waltz for socialization and exercise. I love a good festival with crafts and music in the spring or fall. Or dress nicely and attend the symphony. Love the ocean & mountains. Haven't been to Europe yet still intend to, but just happy with an old Cary Grant movie, a mocha coffee, my dog and a few friends. Really I have had varied interests. I learned a little canoeing.

God Bless.
68, Morristown, TNI am a passionate person. In general, I do many different things and I do them all with love. I believe that if you love what you do you will do it well. I enjoy doing community work for nowadays is what my full time job is about; helping people and teaching health education. When you teach you always end up learning and this process of life is very beautiful. I look forward to start my life again, more mature and with more knowledge of relationships. I would like to find a man to be a companion for all times and hours, enjoy life together and most of all to be my best and close friend. Friendship is the most beautiful feeling for when we get old and everything else changes, real friends are still there one for the other. I had many experiences in my life and do not regret anything that happened to me. I do believe that life makes the best choices and many times, without our knowledge, God is making the best choice for us, although sometimes may not look like that at the moment. Definitely, man plans and God laughs. I was gifted for having wonderful people that influenced my life, starting with my own family. I love to work and also love to enjoy my leisure time. I like music, I play guitar and I like to dance. I also like to read and meditate when finding a quite moment. I like to cook and my friends say that I am a good "chef". I also enjoy pairing good food with a glass of good wine. Last but not least, I love to travel and have been doing that extensively in each single opportunity that shows. I heard once that: "Life is a book and the ones that do not travel only read the first page". Although I am an American citizen I was born overseas. I have Italian and German background. I am very optimist and enjoy life. However, sometimes I feel lonely and would like to have a real companion. Distance is not a problem for me and considering I live alone (with my dog) I can travel and/or relocate. I have a great capacity of adapting to new places and situations. I was born and have been very gifted and tank God for that every day of my life.
