48, Lake Placid, NYSome essential characteristics I am drawn to in others... Communication: It's open and easy. There is an overlap of ideas and an exciting exchange of words and laughter; we talk about both serious and silly stuff. A living faith: a sense that our behaviors and thoughts at every moment of the day are prayers, living testimony to our beliefs and our desire to do what is right and good. Church is not the only place we meet God. Honesty: You dislike hypocrisy and lies, and seek the truth even it is difficult or unpleasant. A sense of culture: you appreciate technology but are not tethered to it; heritage of people and places in small doses is enjoyable. Camaraderie: You can help me grow in faith and love of life, accepting what can not be changed and forging new paths through struggles...... If we can find these things in each other, many other good things should follow: we'll be good with kids and elderly; know how to balance work and play; enjoy nature and art; and will help guide each other towards heaven. P.S. About contraception: If I was 25 meeting "Mr. Right," I'd be all for only NFP. My concern is with regards to change of life irregularities affecting NFP, and the risk of childhood abnormalities with a first pregnancy late in life. I know we are supposed to be open to whatever God sends our way, but I also feel it is somewhat irresponsible to have sexual relations in your 40's and not recognize the increased risk of Downs, etc. and then if I we had a Down's child pass this off as "it must be God's will." In a funny way I ask maybe it was God's will to not have sex! ;) Not easy issues. We have to be realistic, discuss this, and then take responsibilities for our actions and consequences.
37, Waddington, NYI am an adventurous, fun-loving, caring single woman with a deep commitment to traditional Catholic values. My experiences in the Peace Corps and Americorps have contributed to my love of travel, ethnic foods, and serving others. I love to dance and do yoga (I know, controversial - I'm open to discussion). A healthy, natural lifestyle is important to me. I love good conversation with friends, strong coffee and good wine (though neither on a daily basis), and spending time with family. I think life is exciting. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to experience everything (within reason). This coupled with a strong inclination toward service has enabled me to live in a number of places throughout the US and the world. I try to live somewhat like a tourist wherever I am, and I'm always open for adventure, big or small (pretty much everything is an adventure in my book, especially if there's someone to share the event with). I easily connect with people, but I find family to be the most important ones in my life. I was raised in the Catholic Church and have always loved my faith, but in the last few years I have gained a deeper appreciation for the roots of Catholicism steeped in mystery and tradition. Through this, I have also embraced femininity and modesty (I adore vintage clothes). I enjoy learning about random things (but I'm no good at Jeopardy). Other major likes include travel (obviously), dance (all kinds- I think ballroom dancing should be part of High school curriculum), and wandering through flea markets. I also enjoy being outside in nature and in most cases would rather walk than ride (in any weather). I love running around barefoot, but like slipping on some sassy heels. I enjoy cooking (international, or just making it up), but I'll take a fancy restaurant or a hole in the wall if its good! I do place great importance on health, especially through food, but I am not rigid. While what I have said may make me sound worldly, I am actually more drawn to a simple life. I have been blessed with continuing and even strengthening faith where others have lost theirs (a sad side effect of international work, I've observed). I have lead a wonderful life thus far, but it turns out it's hard to find a good match in this confused, disconnected world, and one's faith deeply matters. By the way, I don't have internet access at home (so if I don't answer right away, that's why)!
63, Lowville, NYI'm a single Mom with two sons, one son will be married in January and the other is a Massage Therapist in Arizona and Colorado. I recently finished my Master's degree in Literacy and purchased a home. I put my Faith first, then my family and friends and then interests. I'm hoping to find someone who is a traditional Catholic, puts others first especially family and friends, and able to be spontaneous and open to life's surprises with a positive attitude with a smile that will melt my heart. Love spending time in good conversation, having a glass of wine in front of a crackling fire!
63, Black River, NYI graduated from high school in 1971 and went straight to college. I quit college after 3 semesters and went to work for South Central Bell Telephone Company for 2 years. I entered the Army as a Musician in the Women's Army Corps (WAC) Band. I stayed there through the retiring of the WAC flag when the women were integrated into the Army. I transferred to Hawaii, Louisiana, Indiana, Virginia, Germany, Tennessee, Kentucky, New York, Korea, and Texas before retiring from the Army Band Field and returning to the Fort Drum area in NY to settle as an Army Retiree. Here I attend St Michael's Parish/Catholic Community on Ft Drum and attended RCIA in 2005/2006 and was baptised and confirmed during Easter Vigil Mass 2006. Fr. Jonathan Morse confirmed me. It was a high point in my life. I sing in the choir (and play my flute occasionally) for Saturday evening and Sunday Morning Masses. Going to Mass every week is the high point of my week. I also attend weekday Masses as often as I can.
22, Ogdensburg, NYI'm really not good at explaining about myself. But let's see... I love to cook. I love experimenting with different foods and adding in my own little tastes. I am very creative and love to paint and color. I'm not very good but I don't care. It's fun! I am an outdoorsy girl. I love to hike, kyack, run, swim, play different sports, garden oh don't get me started about flowers! I have about 8 different flowers on my window cill. I love the fall and winter time. I am huge on holidays and their traditions. Fall time is special because my family and I go apple picking and get apple cider and apple donuts! Then when the pumpkins are ready we go and get some and come back to the house and carve them. Oh and just some extra info, I make a killer apple pie!
46, Winthrop, NYHi! If you like adventure, spontaneity, and living life to the fullest, I'm the girl for you! You must love family, to love and laugh. And you must love animals!
25, Boonville, NYI want to find someone who shares my love for God and family. My hope is to find a great friend, just a good man. I want to be married to my best friend, I just haven't met him yet!
44, Ogdensburg, NYI am friendly, energetic, passionate, persistent and a strong female. I am looking for a committed, long- term relationship. Someone to spend the rest of my life with that is my best friend. Looking for someone that has a great sense of humor and enjoys life. I enjoy romantic dinners, going to the movies, boating, hiking, kayaking, running and going for walks. My parents have been the most influential in my life. I am very close to my family. I attend church weekly and my faith is extremely important to me. I am currently pursuing my nursing degree.
23, Ogdensburg, NYCreative writing has been one of my passions since high school. My stories are me having adventures with my favorite characters from my favorite movies, books, TV shows and video games. I enjoy watching sports especially football and baseball and am a huge Baltimore Ravens fan.Another passion I have is watching old movies, including those with Spencer Tracy in them. My mom and grandma got me into watching classic old movies as they watch them from time to time. During my leisure time, I play my video game collection and collect trading cards. I've been a gamer for a long time. Reading is another interest of mine, there are specfic genres i like such as magic, fantasy, and adventure. One of the main reasons why I am on Catholic Match is because I want to find a lovable, fun loving, trusting, gentleman whom I can be loyal to and love dearly with all my heart and soul. I'll defend him and protect my one and only with everything I've got. Believe it.
18, Port Leyden, NYHi! I'm the oldest of eleven which goes in order of me three boys two girls four boys and the newest member a girl! Which we were all super happy and exited about. I am very close with and love all my siblings and there is no dull moment to be found:) We live in a small town and have a big property and there is a lot of farm land around. My grandpa has a small farm with a couple of milk cows and a trout farm. Both my Mom and Dad come from big family's my Dad being ten in twelve and my Mom one in ten. When I need escape I go to my Aunt and Uncles house they have a farm with a couple mustangs so I go riding. My Aunt also has a 4 H group, so I actually got to be in a horse show and won no blue ribbons whatsoever:) I am passtionatly pro life, and protest at the local planned parenthood whenever I get the chance. I love cats!!! Especially kittens. Not the biggest fan of dogs, though they can be cute sometimes. I sometimes work in the Adrondacks, cleaning camps with one of my Aunts. I like classical music and Irish kind of stuff. I love soundtracks especially Hans Zimmer! He is super awesome. I love the marvel movies, and I'm teem cap always and forever. :) I love picnics! I like volleyball and swimming and I'm pretty active though my eleven year old sister can beat me in an arm wrestle, but that's just because she's super strong and has way more Norwegian blood then I do. Jane Austin is a favorite I love classical romances. I love reading the Shakespeare plays, but I am the worst actor in the world. I loved being homeschooled and though my Mom is the worst math teacher she is also the best teacher. I wouldn't have the faith that I have today if it wasn't for my Mom and Dad,
24, Lake Placid, NYI am an athletic, energetic, and happy 24 year old who loves to spend time with my family, be outside, and be active! My Catholic faith is at the heart of whatever I do and wherever I go and when I go on a trip, the first thing I look up is the local Mass schedule! I am the oldest of four children and we have an energetic puppy named Mia. I am passionate about my faith, my family, living a healthy and active lifestyle, the French language and culture, and my job helping those who need medical care. I love cross country ski racing and skiing in general as well as hiking, biking, triathlons, running, and almost any form of exercise and outdoor fun. In my leisure time, I love to make music by singing or playing the violin.
68, Putnam Station, NYWell, I had finished introducing myself, had to go to another site and when I returned here all that I had written were gone. So now an abbreviated version: I was actually writing this from my booth at a craft fair, so it's safe to assume that I'm "crafty". I love horses and horse back riding and have toyed with the idea of leasing a horse (yes, you really can lease a horse-lol). I enjoy murder mystery novels such as written by Patterson and Agatha Christie. My all time favorite DVD is Murder on the Orient Express (Christie). I also tutor for the Literacy Volunteers and I am in 2 choirs - one in my church. I enjoy traveling. Now that I am retired I have plenty of leisure time, but travel is restricted by a limited budget (bummer). I love the beauty and serenity of the Adirondacks or what we call "the north country". The disadvantage is that everything such as stores are so far away. For example, for me to get a quart of milk, it's a 20 mile round trip!
