64, Portland, ORTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~Mark Twain I have just recently relocated to Portland, OR and the boxes still need to be unpacked. I'm pretty content with my life but it would be nice to have someone to share the joy with! My faith is important to me. I try and live a life full of gratitude for both the joy and sorrows that come my way. Everything is gift; everything is grace. I have a good life. My two adult children are healthy and living independent lives. I am blessed with good friends and a nice home. I am fit and active. I like to do the same things most people do. I enjoy spending time with family and friends but also relish quiet alone time. I love being outside; walking, cycling, or just watching the world go by. I like to curl up with a good book or watch a good movie. I love to travel and look forward to doing more of it. I'm just a simple girl trying to live a simple life and do God's will.
74, Springfield, ORI have been widowed for several years and am a retired nurse who is active and likes to travel. My family is scattered, so I have bases from which to explore and many more miles to go. I am active in my parish, sing in our choir and am very interested in nutrition and natural means of staying healthy. Love doing things with my 4 grown kids and 7 grandkids. I am a former Baptist who 'came home to the fullness of the faith' while in college. My faith is my anchor and guide. Like to travel, by plane, ship or car, domestic or international. I have children in OR, CO, Germany & Tanzania. Exploring other lands and cultures is fun, including my recent safari. Pretty conservative politically. Family ties are very important. Walking is my favorite exercise. Visiting zoos, animal parks, theme and nature parks, and old towns. Cooking, some gardening, reading and a few handicrafts are some more interests. I prefer country living, but near enough to a small to mid-size town for convenience. I have a lively sense of humor and value that quality in any potential relationship. I am a very loyal person and stand by people I love to support them thru good and difficult times as well as thru health issues and illness. I do not carry emotional baggage into a new relationship, but believe in being emotionally available to a partner so we can be truly mates. I'm a happy and affectionate person and love to laugh, hug and cuddle.
67, Portland, ORI HAVE TRIED TO CHANGE MY LOCATION TO BOISE, IDAHO but have had no luck. Hopefully this will do it. Thanks!!! I am most passionate about my family. I have 2 wonderful sons, and 2 grandchildren, 7 and 2 and one more on the way. I am a former school principal and love children. For enjoyment, there is reading, dancing, theater, movies, Saturday market, cooking. Just about anything. I grew up in the Midwest so I was raised with strong, traditional values. Living along the Mississippi River, I enjoy a sunny day on the river. I have lived in 9 states so I am pretty flexible and tend to be good with people. As one might guess from my career, I have had to communicate to parents, and relish time to talk and laugh with people. I work out 3-4 times a week. My daily schedule includes Bible study and I attend mass every week. I have a good sense of humor and think a positive attitude is important. The person who impacted me most is my grandfather who encouraged hard work and integrity but to take time to laugh and play. He was a great role model.
72, Gresham, ORI like to crochet,love my little dog,good cooking,flowers and romantic music My priest and good friends. Watch tv,take my dog for a walk,visit friends
66, Beaverton, ORBegin with happy thoughts each new day; keep strength in faith ..... So much to tell and share with someone who is a good listener, nonjudgmental, and receptive of different cultures and traditions. Growing up on an island and eventually moving to the US, I had to adapt to changes - culture shock! I like the outdoors (camping/fishing), enjoy romance novels (with happy endings only!), and I cook island style. Oh, and of course, I enjoy baking and eating out every once in a while. I'm in good health and I must admit - I do listen to music from the 50s and 60s. My faith sees me through a lot of ups and downs in my life and I do not give up. I believe in the power of prayers and devotions. I live a simple life in a very simple home with my fat miniature schnauzer. Presently, I work part time and do volunteer work at a family shelter and food bank. If interested, please say "hello" by private email. Photos via private email only.
69, Beaverton, ORI have been a widow now for four years. I was with my wonderful guy for 46 years, married for almost 44 years. I am enjoying some new found independence as I married at age 20 out of my parents' home. I have four wonderful adult children, four wonderful spouses of these children, and four amazing grandchildren. One son and his wife have lived with me since my husband became too ill to leave alone while I worked. I am politically liberal, I believe in marriage between any two committed individuals, I go to Mass most weekends, but not always when on vacation. I was raised Episcopalian, but easily converted to Roman Catholicism when I married. I miss cuddling, walks on the beach with my guy, laughing at something only we understand, and holding hands in church. I am not certain I would want another 24/7 relationship, but I never say never to anything (except rock climbing and chewy shellfish!) I travel to spend time with my out-of-town kids, and will be spending a month at my daughter's in California this May. I am financially comfortable and would want the same in a match. I own my home, but have had to refinance it to do needed repairs, so still have a house payment. I love wine tasting, movies, live theater, almost all music, laughter, camping, travel, and life. I believe in angels. I am a SF Giants, SF 49ers, and Oregon Ducks fan, but will tolerate another's "likes" as long as they are not rabid! :) I carry extra weight, have learned that this is how I have been and always will be, but I take care pf myself. I have a dodgy knee after a hip replacement surgery damaged the nerves, but I walk at lwast a mile every morning, and enjoy being out in nature. My hair is very gray/white, but I will not let it be that way and choose to color it. So that's a bit about me!

66, Salem, ORMy passions are traveling, dancing, meeting positive people. Experiences and people in my life are the people from the church. The most influential one is my father's younger brother, who is a retired Bishop now in my island. The beautiful experiences working with firefighters and police officers when I was working as an Administrative Assistant for Public Safety, in my island of Saipan, Northern Marianas Island, in the Pacific. I enjoy going out good restaurants and meeting with friends, driving in the country, long-driving and making rosaries, teaching people, especially children how to pray the rosary. I love to evangelize and bring people closer to Jesus.
61, Portland, ORI'm passionate about my grandchildren and look forward to being with family and friends. I have spent most of my life working in the medical field as an assistant which has been extremely rewarding, In my leisure time, I love to roam through antique stores and bike ride.
