63, Concord, NHphysically active, mentally contemplative, currently living in a rural log cabin, within earshot of the loons, sight of an iconic New Hampshire mountain, and occasional bears and moose; AND I can literally ski off my porch. I am in love with more things than I have time to indulge: all of nature, especially winter; the arts, music of many kinds incl. classical, Baroque (Vivaldi) medieval, Irish, jazz and blues, even some electronica. I love most forms of dance. Sadly, I never seem to meet anybody who likes roller coasters. I am an artist/illustrator who has gotten some work in print, incl. the 1998 Tolkien Calendar, book covers for young adult fiction. Considering grad school. Teach various community art classes, also work part time at a "regular" job or two. Squeeze in bike rides and skiing when possible. Some favorite stuff: outside my cabin on a night of moon, in January, when the temp is cold enough to make the snow squeak: it is the deepest kind of quiet. Above tree-line around the time of the Summer Solstice when the light is brilliant (and when there's enough wind to blow the black flies away) A wide unpopulated beach in August toward mid-afternoon when the light turns amber. What the November light does to leafless maples against the sides of old New England houses. Calvin and Hobbes. Fawlty Towers. Long bike rides, especially ones with good swoopy downhill stretches. Would love to do a bike tour sometime. Skiing fresh powder. Unfortunately I'm an easily distracted type with an addiction to the printed word. Julia Cameron, in "The Artist's Way", describes words as "tiny tranquilizers". How could she possibly get that so right? Well still, I've squandered altogether too much time painting pictures to be as well read as I'd like. More poetry as I get older; I love Jane Kenyon, (I have snatches of her poems on the fridge), have enjoyed Victor Hugo and Dostoyevsky, and I did my senior project on Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast books. Have you ever read that? Now that is one hell of an interesting - and hilarious - ride. And of course the novel of the century is "The Lord of the Rings". And the movies - thank goodness they finally found Alan Lee somewhere in the middle of England to help with the visualizations: that's where all that melancholic beauty comes from. You can't keep a labor of love down. Recent edit: I should mention that I'm temporarily living in downstate NH with my 95 y o dad. Cuz y'see we took 'is keys away...
64, Salem, NHHello, I am a happily retired special education director who worked in a public school system for 34 years. My career began as a teacher and I successfully climbed the ladder to central office administration. It was a rewarding, worthwhile, interesting journey and now I am enjoying a wonderful relaxed life! Working out at the gym, spending time with family and friends and traveling are my favorite things to do. I am described as a caring, kind, sincere, honest person who loves to laugh and have fun. I enjoy being with children-they are really what life is all about! Thankfully, my only 27 year old son is independent, successful and owns his own home. He is my pride and joy! I would love to meet a respectful gentleman who has good values and morals- am seeking an affectionate, sincere, honest ,caring man to fill my heart.Thank you for checking out my profile.
52, Amherst, NHI've been thinking about Matthew 18:20, "where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them". God created us to walk together in pairs, to strengthen others along the journey, to encourage and support each other. I just moved and bought a fixer upper so my leisure time has lately been consumed with that ;) Otherwise I love traveling, photography, camping, gardening, and other activities in Boston and New England.
60, Dover, NHI smile a lot. I love to garden, laugh and am always on the hunt for the next best recipe. I enjoy traveling, seeing and learning new things. I am from Colorado, but moved to New Hampshire over 20 years ago and still love it here. I choose to be a very positive person and see my cup as "half full." I have no patience for drama. If you live in that space I'm not the one for you.
22, Sanbornville, NHMy faith is very important to me, the most important thing actually! I love animals and have 2 horses, 3 goats, a dog, a baby puppy, and 2 cats. Those are my animals but I live with my family and we have lots of animals on our small farm. I am a lead teacher at a daycare center and love working with kids. I also teach first communion and 5th and 6th grade at my parish. I love going to mass and go every Sunday plus daily mass when able! In my free time I enjoy going to the ocean, walking, playing with my critters, making earrings, reading, and researching more about my faith! I grew up in a Catholic home with my mom, dad, and four brothers. I don't usually like to rely on others and can definitely hold my own! I guess the most important thing in a relationship for me would be having someone who is willing to grow in faith with me!
34, Chester, NHHi! I'm KJ and I'm back on Catholic Match after a brief period away. I come from a large lively family that talks about movies the way other families talk about sports or politics (we have dream casts for just about every remake you can imagine). Let's see: I love to read. I like Classic movies and old TV shows, and have recently discovered the wacky wonderful world of Planet of the Apes. I'm a Trekkie who thinks no one beats Captain Kirk, though I drink Earl Grey like Picard and occasionally say 'Make it so'. I like to bake, to write, to go to fairs or shows, road-trips, and backyard parties with friends. My dream house is a place on a lake somewhere, surrounded by trees preferably. I'm passionate about my faith and my values, and I think life is an adventure where the goal is both self-improvement and helping those around you to heaven or even just to a better day. That's not to say I don't have down days, alas, but I get over those pretty quickly I'm pleased to say! This profile is a little sparse right now, but I'll keep working on it.
64, Jaffrey, NHI'm a retired over the road truck driver, converted to Catholicism in '05. Retired to get more serious about my faith. Recently became a lay Oblate Novice, which is to live out my love for Jesus and our Church in my normal everyday life. I pray for the monastery I'm associated with and attempt to become a better person in my daily life as lived out in the world, I spend time walking and enjoying my two dogs, all of us grateful to be off the road. I look forward to finding someone to share my faith with. It's in God's Hands as I'm content with His plan however it works out. I was divorced in 1986 and have remained single since them. I'm out of practice with dating, guess just looking for someone to talk about my faith with, I've recently moved to NH and none of my old time friends are Catholic. First get to know someone, share our faith and since I'm new to this area hoping to see all beautiful New England has to offer. I like to have fun and enjoy getting together with a few friends but also like my solitude. Comfortable in my skin, secure in who I am and my life that made me who I am. Love walking the trails around Jaffrey and listening to live music as the opportunity arises, I like jazz, blues, classic rock and classical. I love going to museums and attempting to understand the past, history. I do drink socially and enjoy red wine, love the coast as I'm a transplanted Southern California girl. I've been to NYC when I was driving the big trucks but would love to visit as a tourist. Love lobster, seafood and Mexican food.
47, Rochester, NHHi! I'm an old fashioned traditional Catholic lady who loves God above all else and continuously seeks His will in all things. My faith has been a great blessing in my life and God has blessed me abundantly. I like to cook, laugh, listen to music, go for drives and enjoy nature. I don't have a big family but enjoy spending time with the family I do have ( 2 sons 18 and 16 ) and I value the many friendships I have been blessed with. The simple pleasures of life are what I enjoy most and I seek to simplify whenever possible. I'm usually up for a good adventure and enjoy being spontaneous sometimes. 100% pro life. Thank God..... smile. : ) ...be happy and have a great day.
24, Dover, NHFirst - if you Google search me at "Samantha graduate teaching assistant UNH" and do a little detective work, you can find me! Nerd, life-lover, poet. Happiest outdoors. Currently in grad school at the University of New Hampshire, pursuing my MFA in creative writing. And they let me teach freshmen, which is both rad and probably premature of the university, but I'm not complaining. I've managed a backcountry hut in the Whites, so you could say I'm kind of an outdoorsy person. As much as I love getting outside for some adventures, I'm also down with Netflix binges. Life's all about balance, right? In sum: I like sheep, Catan, and the White Mountains. Bread-baker, knitter, lover of farmhouse domesticity. I have really short hair. I love being outside, long summer nights, good friends, close family, the smell of freshly-cut grass, and puppies.
55, Laconia, NHI enjoy a day at the ocean or a walk on a nice day. I am an animal lover and have 3 dogs. My time in church is a priority and I work my schedule around different programs that are offered. Our community takes part in many charity events for helping the less fortunate. At Thanksgiving time they provide food baskets . This type of giving dies my heart good.
66, Manchester, NHI enjoy spending time with family and friends. My parents are the most influential people in my life. They have taught me by example to be loyal, kind, and loving. My leisure time is spent playing golf, bowling, traveling, and volunteering time to my church.
25, Berlin, NHI don't know about you, but I feel like they're is to much off me to put down in 2500 words, but I'll do my best. I love singing, and you can always find me with some melody stuck in my head and humming for days on end. I have mature moments but much more childish ones ( planning my own trip to Disney next year). I am by no means a "perfect Catholic". I have been trying to say the Rosary before bed, but only ever make it to the first decade before I'm out cold. Oh and I'm quite an eclectic nerd. I love the normal need stuff ( Doctor Who, Marvel, LOTR) but also love musicals, Disney, and some prime time television. If you have any questions about any of the above or anything in general please ask!
