27, Champaign, ILI feel that it's the little things in life that make it beautiful. Like cuddling by the fire, or just being together on the hammock.The small things are what bring me such great pleasure and joy. To me life isn't about all of the big things, its about all the little things that make life wonderful. I truly have the desire in my heart to someday (Lord willing) to be a wife and mother, Family is the main back bone besides faith that makes who I am today. I come from a military family. So God, Country, and Family are integral to me. I truly value coming from a military family. I worked Law Enforcement for three years while putting myself through my master's degree. I am now a doctoral student and a college professor. I am a civilian professor that is contracted by the military. I am blessed to serve those serving our country. With my work experiences coming together I have come to appreciate more and more what my family members, for generations have done in serving our country, with their military service. I am blessed with 3 older brothers and one beautiful Niece and Nephew. At the very core I am honest and loyal. Some could say to a fault, but sometimes your weakness can also be your greatest strength. *P.S. I am extremely allergic to cats and I am not able to be around them. Sorry cat lovers, but dogs are man's best friend anyway.

53, Barrington, ILHello and thank you for stopping at my profile. I am a woman who is passionate about my beliefs, family, friends and work. I am also affectionate with the people I love. I am much more like the girl next door than high maintenance. I love a good sense of humor and wit. I am straight forward and honest. I love to laugh and make people laugh. I love to spend time socializing with friends and family. I am in the process of getting an annulment. I expect to hear by the end of the summer and until then I am looking to meet a Catholic man that I can call my friend. All good marriages start there and I would like to get married with the help and discernment of God. I do believe that spouses are together to help each other get to heaven. I enjoy the outdoors, yard work and being handy. I like to try and fix things, lately a park bench in my yard, my lawn mower and my dishwasher. I also like moving plantings, weeding and making my yard appealing. I enjoy exercise especially from hard work and walking my dogs. I enjoy reading and learning. I read a couple books a month. The internet and youtube are great libraries to learn things. I have enjoyed many Bible studies and I like to listen to relevant radio (Catholic radio). Influential people in my life were my parents, my siblings and my teachers. My dad was in the military for 22 years and we moved a lot. I am from a big family and we have yearly reunions. I have family all over the US.
44, Lansing, ILI am looking for someone who I will be in love with until the end. I believe in only getting married once in my lifetime. I am very easy going. I enjoy the outdoors and I love animals, especially dogs. I work in the healthcare field so I try to stay fit.
73, Downers Grove, ILMy name is Marie, Asian, a widow ( husband German-American recently passed ). I am looking for an intelligent, responsible, compassionate romantic family oriented good man, my age or over for a happy serious relationship. I have my college degree, diploma.. Physically fit at 70 years old, 5'3", 125lbs. "I have a nephew, a priest".. God bless!!!
42, Chicago, ILIf I had to name a passion, it'd be anything related to the Spanish language...hearing it, speaking it, reading it, singing it (well, singing *along* with it on the radio). In general, I'm passionate about learning & am a bit of a "liberal arts junkie"...really love to learn about people, places, cultures, language/words, food, faith, history, art...naturally curious, in both the academic & experiential sense. I'm lucky to be working in an international office in a university where I can sorta "swim" in that curiosity, in both those senses. If you asked my friends to describe me, they'd probably say things like I'm perceptive, caring, a genuine and spiritual person, who's smart and funny (and doesn't always trust herself as much as she ought to). One of my outlets, both physical & mental, is going for a jog along the lakefront (& often snapping photos of things that catch my eye). Apart from jogging alongside it, I love just being by the water, even if/when it's frozen solid in February. I also really enjoy (& value) meeting up with friends for a meal...there's almost always a new place to try, something I love about the city, and more than that, food is just so much better when it's shared with good people & conversation. And I've got a soft spot for cultural events like the summer concerts in Millennium Park or flamenco at the Instituto Cervantes. If you asked me to name a few things I can't live without, on that list would be things like some time to myself each day to recharge...music (just about any & all kinds)...the chance to be outdoors...relationships/friendships I can "rest" in...and a notebook/journal to write in. Some of the things I'm most thankful for are my family & how my parents raised us 4 kids...my faith & how it grounds me...all the opportunities I've had to learn by traveling, both here in the U.S. & abroad (especially the year I was in Spain for grad school...worth every cent of those loans). As a random side note, I'm from Arkansas, and when I get tired, mad, or really upset (or am on the phone with my family), the Southern drawl comes out :-)
75, Chicago, ILI am very much interested in art. I majored in art education in college and taught art as well as literature for quite a few years. Catholic schools as well as public and a little bit of college (Wright).People who have influenced me are family, mostly as well as a few teachers who were encouraging. Some were nuns; some lay teachers. Leisure time enjoyment would involve tennis. I've been playing for quite a few years and still love it. Do you enjoy tennis? I also cycle when the weather is O.K. Right now I'm learning to improve my swimming a little. I'm pretty ugh about swimming skills but I haven't given up.
45, Chicago, ILI'm new at this dating site. I'm putting God first in my life before anything else. I have only one child who's playing important role in my life. I'm looking for someone who's into faith and open for having family with me.
49, Skokie, ILThis holiday season I want to do something different. I want to share Christmas with someone special. I'm tired of being alone. I'm open to an interracial relationship. My ex boyfriend was German and taller than me (6'3). Although I am a heavier set women, I prefer a mate who is lean. It will make sense when the time comes. I don' t run to the gym twice a week to work out or jog. Nor do I drink 3-4 bottles of water a day. Tap is fine with me. I keep myself busy in other ways. I enjoy the simple things in life like road trips, garage sales, fairs, festivals and shopping! As a matter of fact, I'm finished with my Christmas list already. I respect my grandsons very much and the relationship I have with my daughter who is currently dealing with a health condition that is improving. What does that mean? I value my family. That also means the man I'm with has to as well. You have to know your way around the kitchen. Every now and then I like to kick off my shoes and relax. So that means you need to put the apron on for a change. It's hard for me to be in the kitchen all the time since I work too. I am very mindful and will consider meatloaf. I seem to enjoy vegetables a lot. So collard greens and kale are my favorite!
53, Aurora, ILI am passionate about faith, family and friends. Relationships are the most important aspect of our lives. I am a single mom with children who are almost grown, late high school and college. I am very active in my church and sing in an 80 voice choir. I love to garden and enjoy the outdoors. Travel is another interest of mine. My mother was most influential in my life. She was a very loving woman who raised four good Catholics.
52, Peru, ILI truly believe that JOY is a choice and I choose it every day. I also believe that love conquers all. Life isn't always easy but there is always joy and love to be had. My Catholic faith is important to me as well as giving back to the community. I enjoy my life and I am looking for someone to share it with.
55, Woodridge, ILI am a Christian, I have a strong faith. I am loving, honest, witty, and very loyal. I love to travel, explore the city, experiment with ethnic cuisine. I am a good cook. I used to be a restaurant manager, a long time ago. I love to try new recipes. Sadly, it has been less opportunities to cook for the ones I love, as they are gone. I would love to cook for you, but you need to do the dishes. I like to spoil my partner. I love to give little surprises, just because. I am a giver, I love deeply, and passionately. I never cheated on my spouse. I have biblical reasons for divorce. I am a very devoted mom, although my children don't live with me, they visit often.
