I am looking for my best friend, my soul mate, but most especially for my eternal companion! Our lives just seem to be so busy, that we find ourselves doing the online thing instead of having the time to get out there for real. I was born and raised near Boston Mass.(Go Pats/Red Sox!) but have lived in Utah for almost 17 yrs. I was a convert to the church at 18 yrs old, and have been a strong, faithful member with a strong testimony. I am also a prior Marine, which I guess makes me a tough cookie as well! I lead a fairly active lifestyle, staying active has always been important to me. I love the beach and the ocean and miss them terribly! I love to have fun and laugh (who doesn't!), and try to find humor in most everything - life is too short to be so serious, and I say that from experience. I have always been friendly, outgoing, easy-going, and have made many friends in my life. I am open-minded, but am firm in my beliefs and convictions. I like going out, but I am content to stay at home as well. The kid in me still likes to go on the rides at amusement parks, but it is getting harder to find someone to go on them with me besides my kids! I enjoy (and miss) the companionship of someone special in my life, and I am still looking forward to the blessing of being sealed to an eternal companion.
