I was baptized into the Church when I was in my early 20's and went on my mission a year later because I always wanted to be a missionary and serve the Lord. I understand the gospel, I live it and I love it. I cannot imagine my life without it.
Like most of us over the age of 40 on this site, we are here because we have something in common: our lives did not turn out as expected. The Lord had another plan for my life and I have remained single. I would have been a great mother but instead I have been blessed to mother the motherless and my nieces and nephews and children of friends. I would have been a great wife and I still hope to be. I believe we need to trust in the Lord no matter what our circumstances and I have found happiness and peace doing that.
I am looking for a man who honors his priesthood and is a gentleman. The couples I admire are those who are in their 50's and 60's on up who still enjoy each other's company and hold hands in church. They still go out out on dates and are best friends. They love each other unconditionally and have a sense of humor. This is a glimpse of the type of relationship I hope to have one day.
