Each of us has a story for why we are at this junction in our lives. My story is no more important than yours. When appropriate, I would love to hear yours and share mine. Our pasts are ours and our futures are meant to be shared with someone just as special as ourselves. One must hold great value and self respect for oneself or who else will?
I do not want to exclude the perfect women for me based upon regional proximity. So I look far and wide for the women who will brighten my tomorrows. Finding the right women for me is more important than screening away someone based purely on age, build, education, prior relationship status, career, children or lack of children, and looks. A physical attraction to one another is not everything but I recognize it does have to exist on some level.
My seven children are not baggage but are blessings. If you have children, without even knowing them, that is how I see them as well. I adore children despite how crazy they drive me sometimes. Having more children is not a requirement for me nor is it something I am opposed to. That aspect of my future will be determined by you.
My seven children are aged four, six, eight, 10, 12, 14 and 16. The 10 year old being the sole boy. I have them half of the time weekly. They are all highly active at Church. I am proud of each of my children in so many areas. I have a good friendship with my ex-wife with the rearing of our children at the forefront of our relationship.
I believe I am a worthy member who presides with righteousness in the home. I love the Gospel and the structure of the Church. The Church found me when I was 18 years old and I remain thankful for the Gospel in my life. I am a father, sound financial supporter, home owner, protector, highly reliable, stable, handyman, comedian, land owner, mechanic and enduring romantic. I will retire from my first carrier in four years and begin a second. At work I am called Warden but away from work I am called Dad or Adam. I much rather prefer Dad or Adam by far.
My fidelity and loyalty to you will never need to be questioned. I value my Temple attendance and covenants and expect that in a wife as well. I am excited about the Tucson Temple that was announced in Conference. There is no time like the present to get to know someone new who may very well be my eternal companion. I am not looking to rush into marriage. I do however recognize that if the timing is right and the person is too, the courtship length is less important than the depth and completeness of connection between the two.
I am physically active and enjoy being outdoors hiking and camping. I am not big on watching television but do enjoy an occasional movie. Kindness towards you with a daily focus on making your burdens lighter is how I am in the home. I also put forth effort daily through a romantic freshness that is aimed at keeping your sole warm and a smile upon your face. A Christ centered home is what I strive for and know it can be fully realized.
I am not naive; it will take a very kind and special women to even consider the prospect of stepping into a family with seven existing children. Leaving Tucson, Arizona, is also not an option for me, as I will not compromise in fostering the best life I can for my children and I know that is near their mother. This same expectation on mobility may be held by you and I can't disagree with you as children are our happiness, our fulfillment and our responsibility to protect always. I take no offense to these items being a sticking point for you and I wish you well. These areas need not be a sticking point. I will reach out to you if your profile and mine have a great deal of commonality. If I am someone you think you would like to get to know better let me know as I will not be shy about letting you know.
