59, Portland, ORHi- I am a practicing Catholic. .I try to go to Mass every day that I don't work, so it is not just a "Sunday only" thing with me. I feel that the teachings and guidance of the Church are very important to living my life in a manner that not only makes me a better person but helps me to contribute to a better world. I enjoy hiking, reading, watching movies and I am just getting into bike riding. I love animals, and have a Main Coon cat. Dogs are great too, but they require more care than I can give right now. My dreams include some travel--including seeing more of the States. I would love to go on pilgrimage to Fatima and Rome, and also to see Lourdes again, and at least once in my life to take a cruise (just to see what that is like). I also lead a Bible study once a week at my parish and that has been richly rewarding. I love to see people come alive to the enjoyment of reading God's word and the experience of understanding what they are reading and how Church teaching flows from scripture. God has blessed me in providing this opportunity for me.
30, Oregon City, ORHello there. Thanks for stopping by! I'm looking for someone to be open and honest with, have adventures, and grow into the best people we can be. I love doing anything outdoors, swimming, hiking, watching movies, reading, travelling, spending time with my family, photography, and volunteering. I feel like I'm a good mix of wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, doing stuff outside and gettinng dressed up, going out to dinner or dancing downtown. My little boy is a huge part of my life, and I am blessed to be able to watch him grow and help him learn to love God. I have been to Calcutta, India twice to volunteer with the Missionaries of Charity, and I am never happier than when I am serving others. I think I'm very laid back and easy to get along with. I love to be spontaneous, try new things, and am always up for an adventure. My faith is an important part of my life and keeps me grounded and focused on what's truly important.
47, Lake Oswego, ORWow, this is new to me. After helping my friend write her profile for a different site, we decided to do a profile for me. Since my faith is very important to me, and quite honestly the first criteria for a potential partner, this seems like the best place to be. Here goes. . . I am a practicing Catholic mom, with three wonderful kids and a business, which of course keeps me busy! I am passionate about being a parent, doing great things with my work, and making good choices for my family. With regard to other activities, I very much enjoy watching my children's sports and spend a lot of time supporting their events; also, love to read, workout, and spend time with friends. I am very active and enjoy dancing and working out for a number of reasons - health, happiness, and to lose some of the "extra"! As for influences in my life, there have been many! My family is a bit crazy, we have a large group when we all get together.. and definitely fun. Also my education has had a significant effect, am very thankful for the opportunity of attending private schools that provided a multi-dimensional perspective as well as the basis for life-long learning. My work has also influenced greatly my life, a significant passion for anything business related.
23, Roseburg, ORI am most passionate about sharing life with others. I want to know what they're passionate about. It helps me try new things and that is how I discovered my passion for cooking. I most look forward to cooking a new recipe or going to a new restaurant. What influences me most are the adventures I've been on. I recently went to Word Youth Day in Poland and that was life changing. Seeing millions of people gathered to seek Christ, try to communicate, and share themselves was amazing. The authenticity and openness of that many people was beautiful to witness. In my leisure time I like to adventure. By this I mean discover something new. Whether it's going to a new place, trying new food, or watching a movie I'm up for it.

45, West Linn, ORI am beginning a new chapter and I am excited to walk this path. For many years I have been focused on supporting and loving my son and he is now starting his new chapter at college. I am hopeful that I will meet a partner to share my life, explore new areas, and experience some new adventures together. My faith is extremely important to me and it is important that I find someone that shares that belief with me. I work in management for a non-profit that supports and empowers the homeless and I am truly blessed to work with others that believe we have a responsibility to help others. Family is important and we connect and spend time together when we can. Cooking and sharing a meal with others is one of my favorite past times; I love finding new recipes and trying new ingredients. A great glass of wine, good music, food and friends and family are the best. I enjoy going to the theatre, reading a good book (yes one with pages not electronic), exploring museums, and wine tasting. When I travel I like to explore neighborhoods, learn about the history of the area, visit local eateries, and acquaint myself with the culture.
28, Beaverton, ORI am passionate about science and sharing with family/friends. I have not had much free time for the past couple of years but I'm starting to pick up different hobbies like playing guitar and doing 1-day trips near the Portland area. Just relocated from Florida for work.
25, Portland, ORNative Portlander. When I'm not working I'm usually outside somewhere hiking, camping, walking or road tripping...unless it's a Friday night, then I'm at home watching a movie :) Currently learning to play tennis, I like to cook and I'm good friends with Jesus. Working in digital marketing is really fun and an almost perfect fit for me, but my dream job is to be a farmer someday--if I could keep it to 40 hours a week. I'd like to get to know someone who is interested in exploring Oregon with me and who's nice, smart, contemplative, and considerate. If you like food, hiking and watching sports, that's a plus; if you like Friday Night Lights and Celtic music, I definitely want to hear from you :)
71, Portland, ORI look forward to each day and am enjoying retirement . My family is very important to me. I love to travel to new places and also revisit old ones I am very involved in my faith community.
23, Beaverton, ORI love being out in nature, especially in the beautiful landscape I am fortunate to live near. When the weather's nice, I'm out hiking or shooting. The rainy months I spend dancing, reading, and playing with my adorable kitty. I'm not exactly shy although I have a quiet side that makes parties, crowded places, and dating sites difficult for me. I love getting to know people, but I am rarely the one who starts a conversation. My parents and siblings are important to me. I hope to start a family of my own in the future.
21, Keizer, ORHi, I'm Rachel! I'm just about 22. All I've ever wanted in life was kids! I work at a daycare, and I love it so much. I was raised Catholic, in Catholic school up until the 10th grade, when I dropped out and got my GED. I have hopes of one day going back to school for child psychology or education.
