23, Long Beach, CAHey! Let's be friends! Dating nowadays is quite complicated. I believe that so much swiping left and right has led us to sway away from what truly matters; which is getting to know someone for who they really are. Thats what I'm interested in. Developing a strong friendship with someone, that'll possibly and hopefully lead to something more. Of course, it's also important to keep the church's teachings in mind in order to stay true to a path that'll lead to eternal happiness.
48, Long Beach, CAHello, I am a Catholic woman in my 40's. I am looking for a good God fearing man who can be my significant other. I am a teacher of 22 years and independent, however I am looking for a good man. I am very passionate and love to show affection and I want someone who is looking for the same thing. I want someone who will not lie, but is honest and who would always be willing to find the middle ground. I would love a person who is highly intelligent, would go with me to mass on Sundays as well as a decent hard working person.
53, Long Beach, CAI am a simple pleasures kind of gal who grew up with strong morals and values and have instilled the same in my children. I am in a career that I love and have had great success, while still raising children as a single parent for the past 15 years. I am looking for a strong, smart, intelligent man who can appreciate where I am in my life right now, still a mom to 3 kids, one married now and 2 in college, not quite an empty nester, but soon. Interested men need to know that I am very independent, not the needy type, but still require some TLC at times. I love a good time, theater, arts, dining, movies, sporting events, and oh, yeah, dancing too, etc. I'm a very positive person, hoping to find someone similar. I have to say, I am not in any hurry to get married again, but looking to have some fun and if it's right, it'll happen. I am very intuitive and know what I like and don't like, just like anyone else. Definitely no drama.... One thing I feel very strongly about is allowing me to be me and vice versa. In this crazy world, esp here in CA, many times I feel people are so superficial. I don't want to have to peel the layers to find out who you really are, don't want you to have to do the same with me. I'm all about keepin' it real, hence if you use the word "integrity" in your profile, please know the definition of it. I find that here on Match, every man is looking for the same thing and let me just say, there are only a few perfect, women out there, I am not one of them, so if you are looking for perfection knowing that you yourself are not perfect, then please do me a favor, move on. I know for men, the outside package is what you look at first, when I was in college, I did too - I now know that at 50 life is real now, we aren't always going to look like we're 20 and I feel we need to expect and accept all that life has in store for us. You may look great now, but perhaps in 10 years that could change, but the way a person feels about you shouldn't - that's unconditional love, it's funny, you don't see or hear that much on Match and so I wonder.... I am asked all of the time what I am looking for in a mate, honesty and great morals are important to me first and foremost. I want someone who really, truly is ready for an emotional relationship with someone whos over just going through the motions and feels it's time to find that right person with whom he may spend his GOLDEN years with... Yep, that's us right?
41, Long Beach, CAHello there! My name is Melanie. Thank you for visiting my profile. I am a elementary school teacher. I am passionate about advocating and educating children. I also love having the "teacher breaks", so my job is just plain perfect :). I really enjoy spending time with people, throwing parties, being out in nature, including riding my bike by the beach 4-6 times a week. I have a 21 year old son who I raised as a sole parent. He is pretty much on his own, as he is busy with school, work and working on and driving his 69' Ford to different "American Muscle" car meets. He is also conservative, has excellent character and responsible. For the last 22 years, I was busy going to school, working and raising him; now it's time for me and to focus on my future.
74, Long Beach, CAI am very curious about everything, especially math and spirituality. I enjoy swimming in the Bay, hiking, and exercising at the gym...especially Tabata and Mindful Meditation classes. I am adventurous and enjoy trying new activities. I am a participant rather than a spectator most of the time.
26, Long Beach, CAHi! My name is Jess and I'm definitely a family person. I love spending time with my family, whether its sharing a meal or babysitting my nephew (and I know what you're thinking: a Catholic girl with only one nephew? That's it, so far!) I try to make time every day for prayer, family and self-reflection, but some days are more hectic than others. I'm very laid back, and I enjoy reading, writing, and watching movies. I'm not particularly athletic, but I do enjoy sports as long as I'm playing for fun--otherwise, you might not want me on your team :P I've never been to a professional football or baseball game, but I think it would be cool to go sometime and experience it in person. Who knows? With the Rams coming back to LA, maybe I'll finally have my chance! I'm a cradle Catholic but I've been working on strengthening my faith life for the past few years, and it's definitely been a long journey. I completed the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola last year, and consecrated myself to our beautiful Mother Mary on January 1st--both of which made me see how crucial it is to keep praying every day, even when it's hard. I'm also working on remembering to pray to my guardian angel everyday, who I'm sure is exasperated most of the time. Ultimately, I'm learning to put all my trust in God and just let Him lead me wherever I'm meant to go! ...which is hopefully here: on CatholicMatch to meet some of you nice people :)
62, Long Beach, CAHello, my name is Bam. I like to travel, watch movies, shopping, and eating. I would like to meet someone to enjoy these activities with. I have a daughter who's working in Thailand. Looking forward to your message!
57, Long Beach, CAThe most important fact about myself is that I mainly speak Spanish. I love to travel, cook, go on long walks, or simply go to coffee shops. I want to broaden my perspective and learn about new cultures. I enjoy spending quality time with family and performing charity work.
69, Long Beach, CAI am passionate about mankind and its relationship to humanity, i.e., how we treat one another. And, specifically the manner in which I behave in my interactions - the choices I make. I look forward to love and marriage (again) to a Catholic man. The people that have influenced my life are of an infinite variety. The experiences that have impacted me likewise are to varied and numerous to describe. And, I believe they should be discussed in/on another platform.
29, Long Beach, CAHi, I'd say that it is pretty hard to sum up who I am into a paragraph, but I will give it a try. First and foremost, my relationship with God is of at most importance to me. I have a desire to grow in my relationship with God and I hope to meet and get to know a guy who values the same and wants to date with the intention of possibly getting married should we find each other to be suitable. Aside from my relationship with God, I absolutely love my family and my few very good friends, who are practically like family to me. In my free time, I like to talk and dine with my friends and family, listen to music, podcast, and attempt to read books. Key word - attempt ;) I also really enjoy photography, road trips/ traveling. Hopefully, this gave an idea of who I am, though this overall says very little about me. So if you are interested or just curious please hit me up.
