I am no longer using LDS Singles.
The end of my subscription caught me while I was out of the country so I wasn't able to send out any last messages. Sad. So if you are receiving smiles from me, this is my attempt to suggest you track me down on that social network we all know. My last name rhymes with crown - and it's a color.
However, I want you to know that I met an amazing person on here and we dated for several months. She is an incredible person and I may have never met her without LDS Singles. So these online dating sites can indeed lead to fulfilling relationships in reality.
I wish you the very best and if you are really interested in meeting me, I imagine with a little bit of creativity you could track me down somehow. Preferably at some sort of stake activity or LDS social event. Then, say hello!
Until then - stay strong! And courageous! Being single is hard and we are all struggling through it together.
First, the superficial: I LOVE skiing. As in, if I had no other care in the world, I just might ski every day of my life. I also really like whitewater kayaking and windsurfing is similarly awesome. Unfortunately, growing up in Arizona where both snow and water aren't particularly abundant, it was hard to pursue these passions.
Now, the substantial: my commitment to and love of Jesus Christ informs pretty much everything I'm passionate about. I have this suspicion that Christ doesn't much care how often I windsurf for windsurfing's sake, so I try to suit my passions to a purpose: Christ. This means I don't run around getting adrenaline highs as often as I might like, but I'm fulfilled anyways.
If that wasn't deep enough for you, let's talk about relationships: I'm looking for an equal partner in the business of life. Someone to share in the joys as well as the sorrows, the work as well as the play. Someone to counsel with in all our affairs, to raise children with in wisdom. Someone who I can impact the community for good with, stand up for truth with, and serve those around me with. Ultimately, someone who I can worship the Lord with, as all these other things I see as stemming from this one desire. I guess really all I'm saying is I'm looking for a righteous woman while trying to be a righteous man and Priesthood holder in return.
Now for the stupid stuff: I graduated from the University of Chicago Law School and used to live in the hippest neighborhood in Chicago - Wicker Park (although, I probably stuck out like a sore thumb). I volunteered at Noble Street College Prep (a Charter school that serves underprivileged kids), arranged for law school faculty to debate visiting speakers, and served at two different levels in the LDS law society, and, when I could find time, helped an LDS scholar prepare manuscripts for publication. These days, I work as a property manager in Tempe, write faux-philosophy on the side with a PhD buddy, and enjoy temperatures warmer than the negative double digits we had in Chicago.
I love pursuing adventure. Sometimes that's traveling to far off countries, other times that's braving Lake Michigan in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Whatever the pursuit, it's always worthwhile and makes for great stories later on - I'd love to share some, and hear some of yours - so drop me a line. And by "line" I mean a message - I don't really respond to IMs.
