I am an easy-going, reserved, and kind-hearted person and desire the same in a mate. So, if you are looking for someone who is honest, caring, compassionate, and a Christian, then I may be the person for you. I believe in marriage and was married for nineteen years and have been divorced for seven years. I have learned a lot about myself during the past years, and I believe that I have a great capacity to love and want to share life with that special someone. I am a transplant from Northern Illinois and have been here over 11 years. I just love the Pacific Northwest. OK, maybe a little less rain would be nice! Whenever we have a clear day, I am one those people who is looking out their car window and smiling at the mountains. I truly enjoy hiking and look forward to doing more this spring and summer. I also like cross-country skiing and cycling, even though I haven't done either for a couple years.
