39, Tualatin, ORMy closest friends say I am a kind and caring person who is always up for an adventure. I am happy going out to a fancy dinner party or just hanging out at home with some friends over. I am family oriented and when I am not at work, enjoy playing with my dogs at the park or on the agility course. At home, I enjoy baking new recipes for others, watching movies, playing games or fixing up my house. I built a Bocce Ball court in my backyard for summertime entertainment. Camping is a summer activity I enjoy. I also like golfing and walking marathons. During the fall, you can find me at numerous sporting events or watching them on tv, cheering on my favorite teams. Go Winterhawks!
43, Sublimity, ORWell, hello! I am a single, divorced (annulled) mom of a GREAT 19 year old. I love gardening, working on projects at home, and baking. I'm not great at any one thing, but I sure like to try! Well, I might be great with kids, my nieces and nephews love me ;).
20, Portland, ORI spend my week days building my marketing business & living that entrepreneur lifestyle. Growing up with four brothers and an incredible father figure in my life, I'm not ashamed to admit that my standards for men are quite high. My perfect guy is of course the typical tall, dark and handsome, but there has to be more. I pray to God for a man who makes me want to wake up every morning striving to be a better woman. I pray for a man who reminds me to smell the roses, who isn't afraid for adventure, who daily strives to become the man he was created to be and of course, someone who loves a good cup of coffee ;) Life is a grand adventure and I pray for a man who desires to live their life to the fullest. In my free time I enjoy shopping, brunching, mission work, traveling to new places, working out, adding to my bucket list, attempting new sports, going out for coffee, finding new places to Instagram, and of course catching up on new episodes of Shark Tank. It's hard to narrow down how you want to explain yourself in 2500 words, but this is a start. Prayers that you find the path God has for you.

30, Portland, ORI'm sure we all know by now that writing about ourselves is complicated. So, I start writing about how I love philosophy and talking about deep truths (sometimes over beer), but then I'm immediately thinking about whether I should mention that I am extremely fond of cheesy 80's action-flicks and in my past I've been suckered into video games, though I don't own any consoles now. I love to laugh and I'm fairly sarcastic, though never to the point of causing anyone pain. I like fly fishing and camping, but reading on the couch in a blanket is equally fun for me. I'm a counselor at a non-profit Christian ministry (ecumenical in nature) and care so much for the children and teens that I am blessed to be able to help. I treasure people and take kindness as my mission on earth.
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...
55, Newport, ORI consider myself a very good woman. I am very honest, considerate, caring and giving. I know how to take care of my beloved ones. I give more than I could ever ask for. It is my nature to give more of myself than I take and to put those I care for in front of my own needs and wants. I am widowed. I lost my husband 10 years ago, but now I am ready to move on. Life should go on. I want to feel loved again, I need a man who can give me warmth and care, who can give me a shoulder to lean on whenever I need it, a man who will hold me when we sleep, telling me that I am here for you, everything is fine. I love you.
22, Newberg, ORI'm a person of few words, but once the ice is broken I can go on for hours and hours, especially if it's about history, theology, philosophy gaming, or anime. Having a genuine conversation is a beautiful thing! I love talking to people about their passions, joys, sorrows-what makes them tick. Each one of us is a beautiful,unique person made with love and care. It's wonderful when you get to see someone be the best version of themselves.
68, Portland, ORI look forward to meeting my soulmate, someone to spend leisure time with, to laugh and have fun with. To enjoy the outdoors, good movies, music and to sit side by side with. Someone to go to church and pray with. I believe I am a compassionate person and a good listener. I hope to be a friend to you and maybe start new possibilities. Together, we would enrich our lives and never regret that we did not try.
30, Portland, ORI'm responsible, loyal and caring. I really enjoy my job as a nurse in women's health - I really like helping my patients and feeling like I'm making a difference in their lives. I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, weekend getaways especially to the beach, watching sports, and finding new places to go for happy hour! I'm usually pretty easy going, but I can have a temper - especially if my football team is losing!!!! Looking for a great guy who's got his life together and can make me laugh :)
54, Newport, ORThe Oregon coast has called me from the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. I really love the beach and the people in this community. I am divorced after 30 years of marriage and I began a new journey by converting to Catholicism in 2014 and returning to school to enter studies in counseling, social work and computer software applications. I intend to continue with school to get my master's degree in social work, get more involved with my community and see what path the Lord has for me day by day. I have been exploring a lot of new things as I re-start my life. I enjoy camping, travel, and hiking. I have fibromyalgia, so my health is often an issue that I am trying to overcome and push past. I continue to explore new things and enjoy meeting new people. I have one son who is married and is completely independent and living a fabulous life. I recently traveled to Azerbaijan to visit my beloved foreign exchange student son and his family. I hope to travel often and push myself into new activities and opportunities. I am extroverted, much to the exasperation of the introverted people in my life. I have a heart for healing and encouragement, to gather people and turn acquaintances into friends. My home is always open to friends, old and new. I enjoy nights out and nights in, watching movies, enjoying a bottle of wine, thinking about the future, studying something new, or just reading a great book. My relationship with the Lord began when I was young. While I am a new Catholic, my relationship with the Lord has been deep and filled with constant prayer, Bible study and meditation. I would love to share that with someone.
57, Portland, ORI am a refined and intelligent Lady who is well-mannered and accomplished. In addition to being graceful and elegant I am also practical and "down-to-earth". I am honored to uphold traditional values such as patience, gentleness, kindness, modesty and enjoy care-giving to others. I am passionate about learning...in every possible way. To me, education should occur daily in ones life, either formally through schooling or independently through self- study. I find that learning does more than increase one's intellect. It can also promote growth in relationships as well as in one's spiritual, emotional and physical health.
57, Medford, ORMy friends might describe me as an honest, trustworthy and loyal friend who will drop everthing to help others when needed. I am happy, fun loving, intelligence and caring with a little silliness thrown in. I look for the good in each day and in others. I am one of ten children and love spending time with my family. Always wanted children of my own but unfortunately it was not meant to be. I have plenty of nieces and nephews to spoil though! I returned to the area a few years ago from So. California as my mothers health had declined. I love to cook and try new recipes and have been told I am quite good at it. Looking for a kind and caring man to share life with. Spent many years trying to save my marriage but realized it was a one sided effort. It takes two people to work at a committed relaionship. I realize there is no perfect partner but rather two imperfect souls willing to work on creating a mutually loving, caring and suppotive relationship.
