BRIEF INTRODUCTION: I am a believer in Christ Jesus, saved by Grace and of nothing of my own doing. I attend a Non-Denominational church and I am a combination of Baptist, Reformed and Holiness theologically in my heart. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and as such is inerrant and that Salvation is by Grace through Faith in Christ and Christ alone, plus nothing.
I am 65 (as of July 06, 2014), NOT RETIRED and I plan to work for many more years (Lord willing). My name is John Patrick Hansen, and I am an Insurance Agent. Check out:

Reason I am here on Cupid: Did you ever see this commercial on TV that says "you can't lie on the Internet?" Here is a link from You Tube for it... "Can't lie on the Internet"
Like Abe Lincoln, I cannot tell a lie.... So Bonjour, I'll be the first to admit, I AM NOT A FRENCH MODEL! I laugh out loud, every time I see that commercial. It's funny. Hope you enjoy it. I am Looking for Christian lady who has received Jesus as Savior and is committed to Him, with a positive personality, who is caring, a woman who has her act together, and looking for a lifetime mate. I have so much love to give. I have been told by several women,"lucky is the woman who wins your heart", and I consider this a compliment....one of which I intend to live up to for the woman who does win my heart! Not looking for an affair or a one night stand...so please don't reply if that is your intention...I want to fall in love again and find MRS. Right for me ... Meaning, I would like to meet the love of my life . . . but wouldn't we all. Realistically, I'm seeking that one woman who is tired of playing the field and just wants one man to go places and do things with. I'm not looking for a live-in lover. I do not believe in, nor do I participate in sexual relations outside of marriage. I am strictly looking for a wife to be my best friend and not just some temporary hook up! I do NOT smoke, will only drink one beer or glass of wine, if offered by my host, during a dinner on rare occasions, I currently have a small dog named "Buddy." He likes to take me for walks and God knows I need that exercise. Beyond that, I'm just a guy looking for a lady to love long term. I am seeking someone to spend time with and have a good relationship with. I like to go to church on Sunday's and mid-week too. Other fun things are movies, dinner and shows in Las Vegas when I can. I expect my partner to be easy going and fun to be with and I will do my best to be likewise. I love people, I am kind, considerate, very genuine, I have a really good sense of fun/humor! I love music, especially Michael Buble and the Voice FRANK SINATRA. I am looking for someone very genuine, who is caring and kind, and loves life. I have been living as a single for sometime and my divorce was finally final in 2010 and now it is time to start dating and hopefully discover the special lady that God has for me. I am looking for someone who knows how to enjoy life and is self assured like myself. I have loved greatly and I miss that greatness... I am looking for a woman who wants to share her life with a man; who likes to have fun and enjoys having interesting talks. A woman who wants to love and be loved.

About Me My self-summary continued....
*****ABOUT ME SILLY PART ******
Hi : I am 5'10", a Big and beautiful (on the inside) "ex-model type" with all original body parts. (LOL). I currently weigh somewhere in the over 200 pound range, which is great for me. I was over 370 lbs when the older photos on this profile were taken. So I am enjoying the new thinner me. My most recent photos were taken in August 2014 and are shown in the photos area of this profile. My main profile photo with the Yankees cap was taken in 2013 when I was still over 300 pounds. Much less than that now and plan to stay that way.
You wouldn't believe how much time it's taken for me to send my profile "self-summary" from the corner pay phone. (joke)
So, why I am here? Because it would be so great to find one special person I could annoy for the rest of my life.*
Hey to start! I love cooking, but the local fire department has asked me to stop because I'm a 'public menace'. If you ask me, they're just lazy and don't want to keep rescuing me. (Please laugh!)
I'm a good guy, OK, well... at least I try. I have to be honest with you, it's not so easy loving me. I am constantly changing... for the better. I have been told I am a happy guy, unique, graced with a beautiful spirit, , friendly... Of course it was my Aunt Harriet who said that about me when I was six. Yes, I had a great childhood. It was great up until I was seven years old. Then, I was kidnapped and they sent a piece of my finger to my family. They said they wanted more proof. Luckily I have escaped. (just kidding).
I am a well "edjukatid " person, I can speak two languages, including English and Body language. What I like most about myself is that I'm so understanding when I do something wrong. I laugh a lot and don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh. You should know I take my sense of humor very seriously.
THE PERFECT HUSBAND: Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cellular phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen. MAN: "Hello" WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?" MAN: "Yes." WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?" MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked." MAN: "How much?" WOMAN: "$90,000." MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options." WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing... I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $980,000 for it." MAN: "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They'll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it's what you really want." WOMAN: "Oh THANKS! I'll see you later! I love you so much!" MAN: "Bye! I love you, too." The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open. The man turns and asks, "Anyone know whose phone this is?"
A young man said to his friend "My mom is so paranoid. If I cough she thinks I have tuberculosis, If I have a headache she thinks I have a brain tumor, If I lie she thinks Im going to be a member of Congress." On that note let me say that I am not a member of any organized political party - I'm a Republican!
It seems to me that a lot of women today think they are looking for a Brad Pitt look alike or a Superman. At my age, I must admit, I'm neither!
On that note: Have you heard this one? Two women, friends since grade school, had both been married to their respective husbands for a long time. One day, the first girlfriend is commiserating with her long time friend on the phone. "I don't think my husband finds me attractive anymore." She sobbed. "As I get older he doesn't bother to look at me." "I'm sorry," her friend said. "As I get older my husband says I get more beautiful every day." "Yes but your husband is an antique dealer." Well, truthfully I am no Superman. But, if you are an antique dealer, you just might have found the right guy!
Here is a little something to cheer you up about my age: Bob, a 70-year-old, extremely wealthy widower, shows up at the Country Club with a breathtakingly beautiful and very sexy 25-year-old blonde-haired woman who knocks everyone's socks off with her youthful sex appeal and charm and who hangs over Bob's arm and listens intently to his every word. His buddies at the club are all aghast. At the very first chance, they corner him and ask, 'Bob, how'd you get the trophy girlfriend?' Bob replies, 'Girlfriend? She's my wife!' They are knocked over, but continue to ask. 'So, how'd you persuade her to marry you?' 'I lied about my age', Bob replies. 'What, did you tell her you were only 50?' Bob smiles and says, 'No, I told her I was 90.'
Ready for a good laugh? Can I try out a few of my old pick up lines on you? Please keep in mind that it has been about 20 years since I last dated. Here we go, be kind now! (My just for a few laughs type Pick-up lines)
*Hey hows it goin, you see my friend over there, he wants to know if you think ima cute?
*Poof ima here, what are your other two wishes?
*Do you believe in love at first sight, or do I have to walk by you again?
*If you were words on a page, you'd be what they call Fine Print!
*I'd use a cheesy pick-up line on you, but you're too smart.
*I'm sorry, were you talking to me? "No." Well then, please start.
*Do you think I need my library card? Cause I'm checking you out.
*What's wrong? You're looking a little sad and gloomy. What you need is some vitamin ME.
*Are you religious? Good, because I'm the answer to your prayers.
Lately though it seems the audience for my lines is growing smaller. Instead, I seem to be attracting an older crowd these days, who drop me lines, like the ones below:

*****ABOUT ME SERIOUS PART ****
I'm easy going and a good listener. I want to enjoy life with a woman (a wife) and Id like to help someone else (my future wife) enjoy life too. See if you like this one: An English teacher wrote these words on the whiteboard: "woman without her man is nothing". The teacher then asked the students to punctuate the words correctly. The men wrote: "Woman, without her man, is nothing." The women wrote: "Woman! Without her, man is nothing." And I said Amen! And that is what I am here for. Looking for that special lady!
I have been married and divorced before and so I will share here my exact beliefs concerning relationships and marriage: Marriage was established by God to join a man and a woman together for life. A believer is only allowed to marry another believer. There should be no Sex Outside Of Marriage.
What are biblical reasons or grounds for divorce? The Bible suggests that “marital unfaithfulness” is one of only two scriptural reasons that warrant God’s permission for divorce and remarriage. Many different interpretations exist among Christian teachings as to the exact definition of "marital unfaithfulness." The Greek word for marital unfaithfulness found in Matthew 5:32 and Matthew 19:9 translates to mean any form of sexual immorality including adultery, prostitution, fornication, pornography, and incest. Since the sexual union is such a crucial part of the marriage covenant, breaking that bond seems to be a permissible, biblical grounds for divorce.
Listen to what Jesus had to say on the subject:
Matthew 5:32: "But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery." (NIV)
Also, Listen to what Paul had to say on the subject:
Paul instructed the members of the church of God at Corinth that the ideal goal for a separated or divorced couple are to seek reconciliation or to remain celibate. However, a divorce is permissible in the case of desertion. He says nothing about remarriage. But from the rest of the Bible one can assume that remarriage was permitted after desertion.
1 Corinthians 7:10-15: Special case where an unbeliever wants a divorce: "But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace." This is a continuation of the above passage. It covers the situation where a believer is married to a non-Christian, and the non-Christian insists on a divorce. Paul writes that if a Christian is deserted, that they are no longer bound by the marriage vows. They are unmarried and free to remarry in the future.
Divorce, though not God's desire, is sometimes unavoidable. If the grounds for the divorce are biblical (adultery and/or desertion), the divorced person can remarry, but only to a believer.
In conclusion: Divorce, though not God's desire, is also not the unforgivable sin. Regardless of the circumstances, all divorced persons who have repented, should be forgiven and allowed to remarry.
I am looking for a wonderful Godly woman, to marry. The woman the Lord intends for me. I do not believe in premarital sex and am looking for a woman who feels the same way, one who will honor the Lord in this way, and wait. I am old fashioned...dating is getting to know each other, not talking about intimacy from the start. Dating to me, is learning about each other. Marriage serves a variety of God-ordained purposes. Its primary purpose is to provide companionship. Marriage also functions as a picture of the relationship between Jesus Christ and the church.
The woman I would be most attracted to, is a woman who truly loves children, just like I do and especially like Jesus does. Naturally I hope for a relationship with my future wife that will grow into a romance with mutual attraction and commitment to each other. I am looking for a marriage not built on our desire for pleasures but rather based on GOD's plans and then the rest of the blessings will come naturally. So, I am looking for a best friend with a positive attitude. If all you are looking for is a physical relationship, don't stop here. No doubt you would not be happy with this older guy. Don't get me wrong, I believe in true Intimacy within the bounds of Holy Matrimony and that is important (if you really know what that is).
Darling lets be honest: at my age I would no longer be considered to be a stud or "eye candy. "If you like skinny men, I am not for you. I believe we should work on ourselves daily and so my dear, if we should ever get married, lets encourage each other to exercise daily and eat the right healthy food. I am not beyond improving myself for sure. And along the way, I promise to try my best to make you smile. On that note, have you heard this one? A boy came home from school and told his mother he had been given a part in the school play. "Wonderful," says the mother, "What part is it?" The boy says "I play the part of the husband!" The mother scowls and says: "Go back and tell your teacher you want a speaking part." (laugh)... What is the longest word in the English language? "Smiles". Because there is a mile between its first and last letters! So please put a smile on your beautiful face!
I am steady & mature. For anyone looking for an even-keeled, considerate guy, I am your man. I have a substantial romantic side. My future relationship will be long-lasting. I would be considered classic “marrying material” and that is because I am seeking a wife and not a fling! At 65, I might seem a bit boring to some of you younger ladies. Nevertheless, If you are looking for a laid back, easy going guy - you just might learn to like what some call boring.
THE WOMAN I AM HOPING TO FIND, is a lady who would attend church services every Sunday and mid-week also and is a Born-Again Christian. I am not looking for a "Religious" person but rather a Bible Believing Born-Again Christian.
I'm looking for a woman that has strong Christian beliefs and convictions that guide her every day. Sadly, what I tend to see in so many profiles here and other sites, is that too many professing Christianity also focus on all the wrong things first. I don't want a woman that has as her main interest and concern, whether or not I have money or possessions, a great career, whether I am a hunk or stud or hot or not. But rather, I want a lady who's interest is in knowing my heart and soul--whether I am a strong, mature Christian man that would make a good and faithful mate, what I'm all about--how I live my life, what I am made of, and what interests and talents/abilities I have. I want her to be wise enough to be seeking a truly Godly man that would be a great husband and treat her and the family right. Dignity, respect, compassion and understanding go far with me, as I try to also give that to others. I would like her to be able to look past the exterior attractiveness or lack of it and go straight to the heart of who and what I am as a person and desire that more than any outward attractiveness I may possess or may not possess. And I'll be upfront I'm not a Robert Redford or Brad Pitt look alike. My ideal mate is NOT a nut-job. She is giving and loving. My future wife needs to be sweet because I love sweetness in my woman and hugging her too! Hope I am not just dreaming!
I am fun loving, honest, responsible and easy to get along with. I like walks on the beach, swimming, watching the old TV series from the late 70's Vega$ and good old movies such as "Peter and Paul with Anthony Hopkins," "Blue Hawaii with Elvis," Ben Hur," The Ten Commandments," "The Alamo with John Wayne," "Fools Rush In," "Honeymoon in Vegas" and "Vegas Vacation," listening to great music: Gospel, Classic Country and the Standards, Christian Hymns, even soft jazz and old rock/doo-Wop is fun to listen to. Basically, I like Sinatra to Elvis, (I very strongly dislike Rap and in fact - I cannot stand it/will not tolerate it being played within listening distance of me, it is yuck/crap!!! Please don't ask me how I really feel about it!).. I love good conversations and am a deep thinker and I am usually always involved with reading a good book or two to stay sharp and edified. Would like to date someone who would enjoy these qualities. I am a compassionate person. I love to laugh and also have a serious side. I trust the past to Gods mercy, the present to Gods love and the future to Gods providence. I feel the simple things in life are the best, (for example- sitting by the water at Lake Tahoe or in Hawaii, enjoying a cup of coffee outside first thing on a summer morning. I enjoy good conversation and fellowship with other believers and an occasional discussion with differing points of view.
I was raised and taught that a husband loves and respects his wife, like Jesus loves the church. I believe a man should definetely treat a woman as a lady, you know opening her door, saying sweet things to her and always being nice and a husband shouldn't allow dirty jokes and ugly words around her. My mother called that good manners and she is a very smart woman.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME... I was born in Brooklyn, New York, USA and grew I up on Long Island, New York. When I was 16 years of age - I moved to Houston, Texas. So I have been called a "Texas Yankee" and I remember a time, way back in the day, when I would tell people in the Great State of Texas that I was from New York - and they would say, "Get a Rope!" No really, I love the people of Texas and they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet in the whole USA. I have also lived in Florida, New Jersey and I currently live in Pahrump, Nevada - nearby to Las Vegas, one of the most exciting places on the planet. It's country living at its best, yet with easy access to Las Vegas, the most fascinating city in the western U.S.. Approximately 24,631 people (2000 Census) live in the 364 sq miles that makes up the town of Pahrump! Some of my favorite places include Hawaii; Lake Tahoe, Nevada/California and Navarre Beach, Florida. In Nevada there is life off the Las Vegas Strip and there are regular people living here in some very nice smaller towns, cities and neighborhoods and there are even quite a few strong Christians living here in Nevada. Of course we can always use one more. I do really like the climate (about 8 months out of the year) - with the super low humidity and mild winters.
I would rather have a partner for life, someone to spend the holidays with, and loves to travel as much as I do. If you are ready for some adventure, lets take a chance and get to know each other. I'm not perfect..and not looking for perfection, but if you can laugh and/or tell a good joke, that would also be great!! Try this one out: Did you hear this one? Charles was getting annoyed and shouted upstairs to his wife," Hurry up or we'll be late." "Oh, be quiet," replied his wife. "Haven't I been telling you for the last hour that I'll be ready in a minute?" (laugh!)... OK, I'll keep my day job!
YOUR SHOULD MESSAGE ME IF...
You are a lady that loves having her man open doors and help out by pulling out the chair or helping you on with your coat. A lady who would enjoy traveling to explore new horizons. A lady who still loves the good music, enjoys intellectual conversations, likes to laugh, and enjoys talking with her man about everything from ancient history to current events. So, if that is you and If your a born-again Christian and Love My Jesus and your willing to start slowly - with emails and such - let us start communicating with each other and do so to the Glory of God. Amen.
VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY... I've had very little time to devote to developing new relationships until now - so this is an exploratory journey for me. You are welcome to contact me if you live anywhere in the whole wide world. However, unless you would be willing to marry and live in Pahrump, NV, you might be wasting your time. I would expect you to be willing to relocate to Pahrump, Nevada, USA or that we would move within the state of Nevada, should we get married.
If you are not a Christian, you would not be the lady I would ask to get married. But, please let me say this: I wish you the best in your search for the right guy and I also want you to know that if I can help or answer any questions you might have about Jesus or being a Christian, please let me know.
May God Richly Bless you.

My children are fantastic. My youngest - age 8 and I love to hang out and do things together. Any woman that I would marry would have to love her also and enjoy the responsibility of being a part time step mom/big sister from time to time. You also might want to be someone who enjoys going bowling and playing shuffleboard and going swimming and playing board games too! Lots of fun! I would love to marry a woman who can play the game of chess or would be willing to learn.

I believe The Bible is the only ultimate authority for the church of God, which is the body of Christ. All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible and inerrant Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the sufficient, supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks.
I believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe that Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross as sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.
The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.
Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is completely dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit, repent of their sins, and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ. The Church finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations where the Word of God is preached in its purity and the sacraments are administered in their integrity; where scriptural discipline is practiced, and where loving fellowship is maintained. For her perfecting, she awaits the return of her Lord. Jesus Himself builds His church, and has sent the church to serve him through faithful worship, acts of love and service, and fulfilling the Great Commission.
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth—personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Rev. 22:20)
The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. Obedience to the Great Commission requires total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” He calls us to a life of self-denying love and service. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Eph. 2:10)
Furthermore, I believe in the doctrine of the imminent return of Christ (the doctrine that Jesus Christ may come for His Church at any time). I am looking for the Saviour from heaven (Phil. 3:20). I am looking for that blessed hope, even the glorious appearing of our great God (Titus 2:13). I am looking for the Bridegroom (John 14:3). I am rejoicing in the fact that "we shall not all sleep" (1 Cor. 15:51). I believe the coming of the Lord is at hand (Phil. 4:5). I am rejoicing in the fact that His coming is drawing nigh (James 5:8). I am looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ (Jude 21). I am waiting expectantly for His Son from heaven (1 Thess. 1:10). I am looking expectantly for the Saviour who is OUR LIFE: "For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory" (Col. 3:3-4). "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" "DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST COULD COME FOR US TODAY?" I do!
Just so I will be on record, here is my understanding of End-times theology, commonly called eschatology, with Scriptural proofs: 1) The New Testament church becomes the Israel of God (Gal. 6:16). 2) The millennium is the time between the ascension of Christ and the 'loosing of Satan.' 3) The beginning of the millennium marked the "first resurrection," describing the present reign of souls of deceased believers with Christ in heaven (Rev. 20:4-6). 4) Christ's kingdom is therefore, already existent (Mt. 4:17, 5:3, 16:19, Mk. 9:1). 5) Christ's kingdom is primarily spiritual, not worldly or political (Lk. 17:20, Jn. 3:3f., 18:36, 1 Thess.2:12, Col.1:13). 6) Christ's kingdom, like a mustard seed and leaven in dough (Mt. 13:31-33), is growing as the Gospel penetrates the darkness of this world. 7) Christ has utterly defeated the powers of evil and Satan is bound from preventing the spread of the Gospel. At the same time, tares are growing along with wheat and so evil will persist until it is abolished at the second coming of Christ (Rev. 20:1-3; Mt. 13:36-43). 8) The great apostasy cannot be wholly future since Paul said that "the mystery of iniquity" which causes apostasy was already at work in his day (2 Thess. 2:7f., 1 Jn.2:18,22, and 4:3). 9) There will be a visible second coming of Jesus Christ. This second coming of Christ signifies "the end of the age" and will introduce the future age after the completion of two mighty events: the resurrection of the dead and the last judgment. The old earth and heavens will pass away and there will be a new heaven and a new earth (2 Pet. 3:10; Rev. 21).
Here is the real answer:
You should message me if... You are a Christian woman, especially if you are a Widow, willing to take it slow by being friends first and foremost, no rush. you are stable, secure, down to earth, real, kind, gentle. You love the Lord and your baggage is stored high up in the attic. You don't smoke and lets be honest: If you like skinny men, I am not for you. If you are a true Born-Again Christian Lady who is seeking a long term relationship - with the possibility of marriage someday. If you want good conversation, would like to laugh, would like to be yourself and not feel pressure and don't mind starting slowly by sharing emails and advance on the phone calls before dating.
I want to always be kind, but there are some areas where I CANNOT compromise, so PLEASE DON'T CONTACT IF:
1) you don't have a testimony of salvation by grace & faith in Christ alone.
2) you smoke.
4) you are into "rap" or into any so-called music of that type - sorry, I just can't stand that stuff. It hurts my ears.
5) you are not willing to regularly attend a Bible-believing church and pray and read the Bible with me, should we get married.
6) THIS IS LAST BUT NOT LEAST. I AM LOOKING FOR A LADY TO BE MY FUTURE WIFE WHO LOVE'S THE LORD HER GOD WITH ALL HER HEART, MIND AND STRENGTH. If your not in love with Jesus, please pass me by. Thanks.
