34, Plainfield, ILThe other day I caught a news report that listed Chicago as the #5 US city for romance. So what are we waiting for?! ...But before we hit the town, a little about me: I'm fairly comfortable in most social situations and think I uphold my end of conversations. (Wouldn't you know that I get pretty coy when it comes to asking out an attractive guy, though...go figure!) Although I'm not shy, I'm FAR from being the life of the party. Depending on the situation, I can be quite assertive or I can just sit back, listen, contemplate, and then speak when I have something to add. I've always taken my education and job seriously, and I'm now at a point in my life where everything seems to be in a good place. Although I have goals for the future, my current mindset is to slow down and savor this great life with which I've been blessed and house for which I've worked so hard. ...and I'd love to share this time with someone special!
34, Naperville, ILI am someone who enjoys life and I do my best to not take myself too seriously. I am passionate about doing something meaningful with my life. It doesn't have to be anything epic to be meaningful for me, but I am always working toward feeling like what I do has value no matter how small. It's not enough for me to just work, I need to love what I do and believe it is purposeful. And I do! I am happy with where my life is and ready to share in life with somebody if that's what God has planned for me. I am well connected with my values, and hope I will find someone someday who can share in some of those values with me. Although I am not the most coordinated at athletics, I do enjoy playing sports and I go to the gym a few times a week. I'm a creative person and love to do artsy things. I enjoy reading, watching movies, painting, going to the batting cages, and drinking a really good cup of French pressed coffee.
30, Naperville, ILI am originally from Iowa and moved to the Chicago area for a new job ~3 years ago. I care about my job and the work I do. However, while I work hard, I make a conscious effort to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle. One of my greatest passions is traveling, especially internationally. In 2015, I started learning German which has been a really fun hobby for me. I also enjoy exercising (jogging, tennis, and yoga), cooking, music, art, reading etc I have so many interests and not enough time to entertain them all!
24, Villa Park, ILI love being outdoors and active. I also enjoy movies, music, reading etc. My family and friends are very important to me and like being able to spend time with them. I'm pretty laid back and love to laugh. I'm always up for anything, and I enjoy trying new things.
29, Elmhurst, ILI am passionate about our environment, nature and being a good catholic. Whenever I have the chance I love to fish and take long walks. I am an Environmental Educator at a nature center. I love my job because I get to teach kids how to look at the natural wonders of our world. I also take care of the animals that live in the center. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, knitting, boxing and running.
24, Woodridge, ILI love spending time with my family and friends. I am a teacher and also pursuing my master's degree. I am a big sports fan. I value family, faith, and good friends.
29, Woodridge, ILI am really passionate about my career. I enjoy helping people each and everyday and seeing the smiles on their faces when they reach their therapy goals and get better.

23, Lemont, ILHello! I am passionate about the things I believe in and the people I love. I look forward to new adventures that are always happening! Family means everything to me and I wouldn't be the person I am now without them. In my leisure time I like to go outside and find an adventure or just hang out with my friends and family! I love to play basketball but watching is fun too!! I enjoy watching sports but more for the socialization :)
28, Naperville, ILI was born and raised in San Diego, CA where both my mom and dad grew up. I grew up in a nominally Catholic home, but my faith "became my own" when I was in high school. I attended college at Franciscan University of Steubenville where I studied Theology. I then moved to Los Angeles for about 3 years, despite never wanted to live in LA. Lol- when the Lord calls and opens doors, I do my best to follow. I moved to the southwestern suburbs of Chicago in September 2015, and have continued to be amazed by the way God has provided for me since I've been here. In my "down time," I love to spend quality time with good friends. I thoroughly enjoy a night in watching a movie after a full day at work, but I also enjoy going out for a walk/hike (weather permitting), or trying out a local brewery. My faith is the center of my daily life; it's the most important thing to me. I strive to maintain relationships that are centered around Christ. I'm a firm believer that "the world doesn't need anymore sour-faced saints." I believe that if someone truly loves the Lord and lives his/her faith as integral to life (not as a separate part), then there is a certain peace and joy that radiates from the person. I strive to attend Mass as often as possible because I can only love as I am able to let Christ love me, heal me, sanctify me, and love through me so that it's no longer about me. It's fair to say that I'm not yet sure how I feel about Online Dating, but thought that I might give Catholic Match a try.
24, Chicago, ILI am living in this world to create a difference through small acts of daily change. I look forward to continually growing skills to be able to best serve those around me. Currently, I am just a med student getting through didactics and being amazed at what science has discovered about the human body. I enjoy staying active through hiking, biking, cultural events and new activities. I love a good stroll through a city and conversations about life, political events and pretty much anything you can think of.
23, Naperville, ILHi, I'm Maureen! I'm 23, I live in Naperville, Illinois. I work as a restaurant Shift Manager these days, I studied one of my great loves, History in college, and I hope to be able to dive further into history some day, I look forward to hopefully getting to work and do research for a museum. I have learned a lot from the people around me about myself and what's important to me, especially during my four years of college where I learned so much about my faith, and I got to do a lot of wonderful things. I learned a lot about authentic love, and how important giving oneself away is. My friends and family definitely influence me and challenge me to be a better person, When I am not working, I love to spend time with friends and family, being outside, sports are a big deal, books are a great love of mine, as well as music of most any kind, and my Netlflix subscription is definitely not neglected. I am passionate about life, and giving all the love love I have received and continue to recieve to others, and I would love to find someone to be my adventure partner and someone to push me out of my comfort zone, as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI says, "You were not made for comfort, you were made for greatness." and I definitely would like to find someone who I can do that with and have by my side along the way.
