64, 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.
74, Brookings, ORMy Catholic faith is very important to me and sharing it with the man in my life is a top priority, above all else really. I attend Mass every Sunday and sometimes during the week. I say the rosary before Mass each week.I know I should do better on that. I attend Eucharistic Adoration on the first Friday of every month and try to attend Benediction as well. We only have Adoration and Benediction once a month in my small parish. I'm very active in my parish. I am a member of the Pastoral council, I had been the parish's web master since it's inception until recently. I am a widow of 9 years now after being married for 35 years. I feel I'm now ready to consider developing a relationship.I am, I think, a sociable, patient, and fun person to be around. My friends tell me that people feel comfortable when they're around me, and that I'm considerate and trustworthy. I believe that friends and family are more important in life than jobs or a career (but then I'm retired).I'm unpretentious, have a genuine interest in the well being of the people in my life, and I strive to make others feel good. I would consider myself to be a talkative person although I tend to be a little shy when first meeting someone. I'm a good listener, too. I have a knack for learning things about the people and places around me and then sharing those stories with others. I also love traveling and have visited our neighbors, Canada and Mexico, as well as all the countries in Central America except Panama. I even lived in Costa Rica for a few months. I have RV'd around the entire perimeter of the U.S. New Zealand was one of my favorites foreign destinations where I spent 5 weeks. I went on pilgrimage about 7 years ago to EWTN and the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Alabama. We stayed at a Benedictine Monastary where we participated in the Liturgy of the Hours in the morning and evening with the Monks. That was my first experience of pilgrimage.The second was a pilgrimage to Italy followed by cruise/retreats to Alaska and one to the East Coast from New York to Montreal.

62, Eugene, ORI was baptized as an infant and attended CCD classes and vacation Bible school until about 12 years of age. My Mom divorced my Dad before I was two years old, and when she was only 18. I didn't meet my Dad until I was 10 years old. I began to visit him in the summers, and he was influential in leading me away from the Church into New Age occult practices. I spent the next 30 years "searching for myself" as they say. For a while I tried different protestant Churches. Then I began reading self-help books, took workshops, learned astrology, wore crystals, and went to listen to the wisdom of channelers, among other things. When I went to graduate school at the University of Oregon, I dropped all such practices and was "unchurched" for at least 10 years. Then in a way I can't explain, I kept getting a recurring thought to go back to Church, to go back to the Catholic Church. It took three years before I acted on that thought and called a priest. That was in March of 2007. The priest I called was a Dominican. We set up an appointment, and that was that. I had to learn all over again how to be Catholic. But spending most of my life away from the Church had shown me all the ways that people can go wrong--even when they're desperately searching for what is right. I just fell into the arms of Mother Church and wanted to learn all she had to teach. At one point, I was feeling very sorry and unworthy for many terrible sins in my life. In tears I opened my Bible "randomly" right to the story of the prodigal son. I almost couldn't believe it. My pastor helped me with an annulment of my marriage to the father of my 3 children. 2 years ago, my second husband died. Today, the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of my life. I try to attend Mass daily. I love our Lord, our Blessed Mother, a lot of angels and saints, and our Church. I volunteer a lot of my time with parish activities and a local Catholic charity where I help with accounting. I'm just trying to discern if God has a man he wants me to meet...
64, Portland, OR
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!
