65, Carlinville, ILI have been divorced/annuled for more than ten years. I have been open to other relationships, but my life is very full so not actively seeking. Recently I have decided that I am ready for new adventures. For many years I lived in Oklahoma where I was a professional in a healthcare related field. I owned my own business and taugh at two local community colleges. Teaching is my true love and a year ago I jumped at the opportunity to teach full time at a small liberal arts college here in Illinois. I have a son in college in Tulsa and enjoy him very much. I am fairly active in my church, sing in the choir and occasionally cantor. I am enjoying small town life after almost 30 years in the city. Though I would prefer to be in the mountains, this is a good place to be. I enjoy many things, particularly hiking, horseback riding and sight seeing, as well as music, movies, good comedy, books and learning new skills ( I've taken classes in ceramic tiling, upholstery, landscaping and woodworking, among others). I enjoy a good discussion as long as it is in the right spirit.
69, Springfield, ILI am a retired 65 year old woman who is committed to faith, family and friends. I have had some tough time in my life but with God's grace the experiences have led to a place of comfort. I like to travel and often visit my son, daughter in law and new grand daughter in Denver. I don't like winter much but right now I am living in the Midwest and unfortunately there is winter here. My sister and dear friends leave here so I just try to deal with the cold weather and look forward to summer - my favorite time. I enjoy gardening, bridge, reading, water aerobics at the Y and spending time with family and friends. Even after a good deal of sadness, I think life is grand and look forward to every new day with thankfulness.

I pray daily and feel it is important to find someone who also loves Jesus deeply.
64, Mattoon, ILI was raised in a very strict Catholic home. As a young adult, I rebelled and was married to a person whom I was not compatible with whatsoever. I found the 'love of my life' in my 40's, but sadly he passed away in 2002. Now I am at the beginning of my 60's with my children grown and living away. I miss the companionship of starting the day with coffee and conversation to ending it over a glass of wine (add a beautiful sunset and life is good :)). I have seen both sides of dating and realize that no one has to settle; we all have unique qualities to bring to a relationship.
