65, Beaverton, ORI try to trust God to be with me. I moved from the East Coast to the West Coast to be nearer my siblings and to make it easier for my parents to move closer to their grandchildren. My sister and I cared for our parents full-time until they both passed on. People that I have worked with tell me that I get along well with everyone, that they consider me to have high ethics, and that they love to hear me laugh.
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.
75, Springfield, ORI have been widowed for several years and am a retired nurse who is active and likes to travel.

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.

70, Falls City, ORI am passionate about justice, and liberty, Recently joined the Republican Party, and am one of the most active members. On the more mundane side, I enjoy good company, good food, and beautiful scenery. I have recently bought in Bandon, on the Southern Oregon Coast and am building a house there. I have many hobbies and interests including writing, (poetry and fiction), needlework to help pass the rainy winter days, and photography of family, friends, and nature. I did it professionally for awhile. I love the outdoors, and weather permitting, you will find me walking, and gardening. I dont look or act my age, though I am rather more laid back these days, as I have very little need to hurry and I find my days quite filled, and bedtime seems to come too early. My newly married son lives in Seattle, was home schooled, and is a very successful engineer and businessman I do watch a lot of television, though it is mainly the science channel, fox news, glenn beck, or hgtv. Would like travel more, tho I am happy being at home too. Love gardening, and keeping house. Not a typical liberated woman, but in spirit. And most importantly I love God who will always be nunber one, who manifests Himself in my life as conscience, love, and guidance. Hope you do too. Next to God of course, nothing comes before a spouse. I have been divorced , but was not married in the church. As I had very little good parenting,I would have to say that church, school, and community were the most important factors in my early life,; later after much suffering and searching, I once again embraced God through anonymous programs, and enlightened mentors I have met on the path. Although my personal beliefs are basically in line with the Catholic Church, I dont believe you have to be a church going Catholic to enter heaven, but as always, I am becoming increasingly willing to let Him guide me.
