My dad asked me to introduce him to you. My dad is funny and kind he loves his family more than anything and a good way to get on his good side is to agree with him about how beautiful and wonderful his 3 daughters are or how amazing and smart his 2 sons are. A sure bet for a good conversation starter is to mention that he has the best 16 grandchildren in the world. He can talk for hours about them and he does. (If you don’t like that sort of thing, it’s probably best you don’t start a conversation with him…) (span style="font-weight:bold;")
He comes from the small southern Utah town and has great stories from his childhood growing up there. He is very patriotic, but has some very strong opinions. He loves Fox news and is growing fearful of the state of our great nation. (If you don’t like Fox news, you won’t be able to change him, so it’s really best not to try.) Believe me we’ve all tried to talk him down a little, but in the end we just love him for who he is.)
My dad is a very active and strong member of the church he is looking for someone who shares his traditional LDS beliefs someone who attends church weekly, holds and uses their temple recommend. Someone who will say yes to church calling when asked and sustains and supports our church leaders. (Again, if this isn’t you, he will gladly be your friend, but his standards can’t be swayed.)
I don’t know if my dad will ever get married again. Who knows, you may be the one. . He had a little baggage from a hard divorce but I think he has found peace with his past. If you have a little baggage, he understands. You just deserve to know this up front.
If you are looking for someone to spend time with, to have great conversations with, to go to lunch or dinner, someone to see a movie with or watch the game with my dad is a really great choice! He likes to golf and fish and four-wheel. Don’t worry though, if you don’t like doing those things, he loves to do them with my brothers. He does however like to tell you all about them. My dad is a good listener too. You may have to teach him a little about your passions, but once he understands what you love, he can keep up his end of the conversation about many things and will only need a few reminders every now and then.
So ladies, this is my dad. I hope you find him as wonderful as I do! (span style="font-weight:bold;")
