I'm looking for a merger, not a mere partnershipEarly last year I returned to the US after living several years in Egypt—an amazing place with daily surprises. Egypt was a good place to start on my dreams, but not the best place to date. I'm fit and healthy, and I focus daily on my relationship with Father in Heaven. I attend my Church meetings and strive to fulfill my callings in the ward and in the Priesthood. I love living the simple life and am not fooled by the artificial happinesses of the world. I'm a saver, not a spender. A minimalist. I'm both an idealist and a jack-of-all-trades pragmatist. Unfortunately, two skills that elude me are music and horticulture. Room for improvement. I enjoy a good adventure—not to be confused with mere "recreation"—and have a chronic case of wanderlust. Also: trilingual, ambivert, sapiosexual, ENFJ, Red-Blue, political independent, etc.My dream is to have a family while working in various countries around the world, periodically returning to a home-base in the Colorado where we'd eventually retire to a life of even more Church and community service. I'm not really as inflexible as I may appear. As I said, I'm looking for a merger rather than a mere partnership.Some wild factoids: 1) I slept on top of a mud-brick skyscraper in Shibam, Yemen. 2) The tribal chief of the Mursi in Ethiopia offered me his son as a gift. 3) I've almost died by electrocution, glissade, avalanche, jellyfish, and motorcycle accident. 4) I've never boken a bone. 5) I hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim in a day. 6) I taught myself to crack safes.
