60, Kent, WA"So long status quo, I think you've got to go. The way it always was is no longer good enough." My status quo is going to go in a much better direction as soon as I find you! I strive to live by the better angels of my nature. I have notions of one last great romance. Like a lyric from a favorite song, "the rig's a little older, but that don't mean she's slow." More steady than slow now at nearly 60. After more than half a century, I have figured out my life and now that I have, the best is yet to come. I am a romantic who can still put a blush on a cheek, more swing in a gate and make a heart beat faster! I love history and often teach it (and MBA courses) as a college professor and dept. chair. I am emotionally strong, assertive and still ambitious. I seldom seek the approval of others and march to the beat of my own drum. My rhythm is generally smooth, soft and steady; however, I am still passionate and will ramp up when inspired. I am well educated, informed, empathetic, intelligent, persuasive, articulate, and good looking. I love learning, discovering and exploring and still have unmet goals. One goal I am working on is completing a masters in psychology to begin anew career as a therapist. The other one is meeting you. Friends and colleagues say I have a warm personality, calm demeanor, and giving heart. Many will say I am fun to be with. I love nature, pets, sports, music, movies, comedy, museums, cooking, walking, service, irony and humor. I am multi-faceted, creative, and industrious. I can be irreverent (usually at pretense or arrogance). I make delicious pasta, enjoy an occasional beer or scotch, love football and baseball, antiques, the Civil War and New Frontier. My bucket list includes "you", sailing, visiting every MLB park in the US in an RV, finishing a book and script I began writing, going to Ireland, learning to make French sauces (not sausages) and attending a Jersey Boys Broadway play, even if it is in Des Moines, Iowa. I am fond of Asian culture, the Navy, biographies, and history. I have a strong intellect, without arrogance or pretense. I think I have a great sense of humor; the dry and witty type. I am quick with whatever life is in front of me and have an intuitive sense for people and situations. I am usually open-minded, curious, flexible, accepting, and friendly. Faith, spirituality, community, service, and teaching are still important to me. Help me cross "you" off my bucket list and sing with me "Oh What What A Night!"
44, Bothell, WAHi :-) I offer a friendly nature, caring, realness (genuine), & looking for my best friend with whom to have a sweet relationship! I'm American-Iranian (Persian), I'm easy to get along with, as long the other person is polite, kind, and enjoys sharing a range of "moments", from intellectual conversation to silence, simply experiencing the time shared together, in an activity or just cuddling watching a movie after I cook you dinner! qually as important, I actually live the Christian life (center of my whole life), & expect myself to make God & Jesus happy with my thoughts & my behaviors/choices, hoping to earn my worthiness according to their standards of goodness, not the world's standards. My general personality includes good humor, known among friends, family, & colleagues for my high level of diplomacy (good manners), direct communication skills, absolute honesty, & focus on my lifetime of a spiritual journey to build my soul's character with the help of God and Christ. :-) PLEASE NOTE: P.S.- I have been 105 pounds most of my life. Within the last year, I have unfortunately gained about 40 pounds, and IT SHOWS as I am "CHUBBY". (Think just Slightly Marilyn Monroe-ish figure or movie "Bridget Jones" chubby, not fat. Just please don't expect an ultra thin 'stick' figure please, but I am dieting. I am definitely a giver, but want to see first that the person I get to know for a future dating/relationship is ALSO a giver!! Nice Guys Do Finish First With Me! I have seen all types of people & the darker sides of life, so I am not naive, & know exactly what I am looking for. I acknowledge my own weaknesses & hope to find a special man whose weaknesses mesh smoothly enough with mine, as well as our combined strengths, together to make it all compatible. I am very lenient on some things & very strict on others (honesty, integrity). I am very reasonable & rational about my getting to know someone. I do believe that in this world there are truly good people with a conscience, but it seems you really have to search. If you treat me with gentleness, sweetness, & chivalry...You will be treated like a king! The kinder you are, the more you will have from me. :-D I hope to find a great man who has intelligence, humor, empathy, sense of honor, and a willingness to understand how wonderful it is to share a sweet companionship based on earned trust, goodness, and Jesus Christ. I want you to be my BEST FRIEND & for us to be able to talk about anything, on any level. :-)
47, Seattle, WAI am passionate about my faith and about life. I am an outgoing, loving, and joyful person who loves relationship and finding kindred spirits. My life has been transformed through my immersion in the horse world and having my own horse. I love the outdoors and riding in the deep forests. I am amiable, intelligent, communicative, and affectionate. I love the true faith with my whole soul, have a deep devotion to Mary, and to the Holy Spirit.
32, Bellevue, WAI am a young professional working at a software company. I am a world traveler and looking for a fellow partner in crime to explore new places with me. When I am not working, I like to ski, play soccer, go to concerts, and experiment with new recipes. My passion in life is teaching and I hope to open a school some time in the future.
28, Camano Island, WAI am a very positive and optimistic person, always trying to see the positive side of things. I'm easy going, thoughtful, honest, kind and caring, often putting others needs before my own. I am creative and enjoy a wide variety of hobbies and interests. Having long discussions of anything and everything Disney is one of my favorite topics. I have a wide variety of favorite animals and can name off (most) every dog and horse breed there is. Chocolate and Garfield comics are a necessity to get through tough days. My main goals are to first and formost to get to heaven, eventually be a full time mom and raise a family of souls for God.
62, Tacoma, WAMy name is Fe but my close friends call me Ping, the nickname given to me by my big sister in nursing school. Sometimes I also use my nickname at work just because some people mispronounce it. I have lived an active lifestyle all my adult life engaging in some activities like dancing, running, swimming, biking, ballgames, hiking and entertaining friends at home. Although I have slowed down these past few years due some work-related injuries, am still looking forward to the next phase in my life especially my retirement years since I had been an empty-nester for awhile now. My Catholic faith has helped me through the tough times and has also strengthened my resolve of being a child of God. Additionally, my Catholic education with the Augustinian Sisters have influenced my life the most since my parents were not church- goers. However, my mom always told me to work for the common good as taught by the nuns in her nursing school. When it comes to leisure time, I am a book reader but more so of a movie buff like my dad. I like anything from romantic comedies to sci-fi and action films. I also enjoy listening to a variety of music from classical to rock and roll. Going to shows like the opera, ballet and concerts are some of the things I wish I could do more with friends and family. I also enjoy gardening and nature walks. Lastly, I am in the process of making a bucket list this year which will include skydiving, parasailing, horseback riding, more travels abroad like pilgrimages and such.
47, Nooksack, WAI'm a simple man who loves helping others likes adventure open to meet different people to share experiences and moments. enjoy different physical activities love my family looking for the right person to share beautiful moments.
50, Federal Way, WAI just moved here from Austin Texas. I have never done anything like this. Being new to the area, I am having trouble with meeting people. I hope that this will make it a lot more fun here in Seattle.
29, Bellevue, WANote: I know my temperament test says I'm a choleric sanguine, but I've got a hefty dose of melancholy in there too. I think I was just having one of my saucy days when I took that test. For followers of MBTI, I'm a INTP. I'm a fun and intellectual person who enjoys all kinds of heady conversations. I am particularly interested in: literature as a means of influencing culture, the power of stories, the similarities between the political far right and far left, how to communicate Catholic truth to non-Catholics (Natural Law, etc.), caring for and educating youth, history, sustainable agriculture, and the beauty of the natural world. I feel very driven in my life to make a positive difference, which is mainly taking the shape of writing and establishing intentional agrarian Catholic communities. Regardless of whether we get together romantically, if you have any experience with such a community you should message me. I'd love to hear about what worked and what didn't! Something you should know right off the bat about me is that I have Fibromyalgia, which basically means I have low energy. Sometimes it's not something anyone would notice, and other times it's a very big deal - it just depends on how much stress I'm facing. I've been addressing it from multiple aspects of my life, and have made some progress, but it's a journey and one that requires flexibility and lots of understanding from other people in my life. However, this condition does not define me or prevent me from contributing to the world in meaningful ways, it just changes the dynamics a bit and forces me to have good self-care and not be a martyr. So if you're looking for someone who will be your mom and do everything for you, look elsewhere. I am totally open to discussing this more in the context of a relationship, but be aware that I can give very few absolutes on it since, as a condition, it is still very poorly understood, and my own personal experience with it fluctuates. I'm a fan of meeting in person fairly soon after connecting online, in part because I think there is something really special about what happens when two people meet "in the flesh" and partly because I try to circumvent my propensity for endless browsing on websites, including CM, by not being on them.
22, Camano Island, WAHello my names Kolleen. I am a friendly but pretty quiet person especially in public situations, although at times I am not afraid to speak my mind. I am most comfortable socalising with family and closer friends but I don't mind meeting new people and will talk to others if they approach me. I like spending time with family and people that are close to me. I love to listen to music and write stories that I hope to publish someday. I like to play board games and watch old television shows: The Andy Griffith show, The Rifleman, Adam-12, The big valley, CHiPs, and good movies. I will occasionally read a favorite book or read a new book if it interests me, especially if it's historical fiction in world war 2 time period. I like to play some sports just for fun like baseball and basketball and I also like to go and watch baseball and hockey in person. And I like to journal and take pictures and video's to make memories.
37, Auburn, WABesides my Faith, being a Mom is what I"m most pasionate about. I enjoy my "Me" time as well and spend it doing home improvements, writing, and the occasional night out dancing, I love to dance (yes I can do it sober) I am extremely creative and it shows in my home and many other areas. I'm very strong in my Faith but have not always practiced it. I am extremely kind and unjudgemental I prefer to let God do the judging. Mother Theresa, St. Terese of Avila are my most favorite Saints, oh and Pope Francis Rocks!!!! His humility is an example to all. I am much more hmmmmm"old fashioned " Catholic though, but he's our Pope!! So I support him completely. Yes I veil:).
29, Edmonds, WAMy friends have said that I come across as polite and gentlemanlike, but I suppose that is what people see on the outside... Deep down, I think it is important to treat others with sincerity charity and give all you have to offer... I think it is important to share our talents with others, and to edify and uplift others. I may come across as just being kind as some of my friends have said, but really it is a desire of treating others well that motivates me, at least this is what I strive for, some days can be tougher than others for sure! :) Also, my mindset is a "pull yourself up by your own boot strings" type of person, at least for myself... I realize that things just don't happen by themselves! This particular outlook and work-ethic is so very present in my daily work and home life... I always to try to do the best I can in my work and tasks! I am very meticulous and detailed oriented by nature and have always believed that it is the details in life that make life enjoyable! :) In a relationship, would hope to treat my girl to a special evening, such as a good concert & a nice classy dinner, and maybe afterwards a special night walk, talking about life and dreams ahead. I am a very traditional-minded Catholic, who attends a Latin Mass. I love our Faith very much. It has a very strong presence in my daily life and outlook in all things in life.
