Well, jumping in to 2013 both feet and forgetting the parachute. Tired of being lonely and I do not think that I am ready to date, but like the lottery, you cannot win if you do not play. For me, the last time I dated, there was no online dating, so sorry if I am a little rusty, but here it goes….
Not trying to "rob the cradle" and not interested in dating my mother.... I am looking for my best friend; lost mine and missing her fiercely. I have my flaws like everyone else, but I am generous (my family and wife come first), loving, caring, easy going, simple man and devoted father (and hopefully a husband again. Want to live Ephesians 5:25 again) who looks forward in serving and helping others. Outgoing and friendly, enjoys sports, hiking, swimming, new to cross-fit (and LOVING IT!!!) and getting ready for my first 3K and 5K races. I enjoying being a father and a lot of my life revolve around my kids; 16 year old daughter, 13 year old daughter and twin boys who are 11. Having a smile on their faces is my GREATEST joy and happiness; it is fun to be the one to put it there too. For me, they are the most important people on the earth.
However, I enjoy the simple, uncomplicated and spontaneous things because life is short, time is precious; walks in the park, impromptu to picnic, exploring new places, just cuddling on the couch, a tickle fight, spontaneous movie trip or dinner plan and planning a surprise gift, romantic dinner or event is ALWAYS worth the smile!
Back when, I remember theses “lists” that were made for the “perfect mate”. Guess what, no complicated lists to frustrate me; I am looking for my best friend, someone who completes me, someone who brings out the better or best parts of me, who lights up my world or lights up the room for me just because she is there. Strong testimony and having a relationship with the savior is now at the top of my list and I want to attend the temple as a couple. I am not perfect and am not and gave up looking for perfection. Not to sound selfish, but kids grow up and move out, so being a devoted mother is a big plus. And sorry, Ready for the next stage of life and not looking at having additional children other than the ones from a previous marriage.
Long distance relationships maybe frustrating, but I am willing to make the journey if the time and opportunities allow and are provided (I have faith that the lord will open doors for an eternal marriage). I may have been known to do some dumb things, but future investments in love is ALWAYS worth the sacrifice for anyone; kids or otherwise. Just message me and let’s find out.
