Hi, my name is Christy and I’m a new convert (November 2012). I’m so blessed and happy to have started this journey in the Church and am grateful for learning about the Gospel, which has given me a strong testimony. I've made quite a few changes in my life in the past 6 months. The first step was rediscovering my faith that led to my conversion. Because of how strongly I feel about the Gospel, it's led me to improve not only my spiritual health, but also my physical health. I've started working out, eating healthier and feeling better about myself. So what am I looking for on here? Well, let’s just say I’m a hopeless romantic who believes in the old-fashioned notions of courtship and chivalry. But I'm also a realist, so I'd like to meet new people, make friends, and see where it goes. But instead of focusing on what I’m looking for, I can tell you what you can expect from me.
I will respect you no matter what (which means no childish eye rolls or zoning you out). If you’re taking the time to share your thoughts, feelings and ideas (or conspiracy theories like the Zombie apocalypse) with me I will take the time to really listen and give you feedback.
I will let you be a man, period. I won’t expect you to answer questions that are no-wins for you or set you up for failure (i.e. “Do I look fat in this?” or “Do you think this lipstick is too pink for my skin tone?” or “Do these shoes go well with this outfit?”). If I want fashion and/or beauty advice/opinions I’ll ask a girlfriend or check with Glamour magazine. Yes, I want us to be best friends, but I don’t expect you to be “my gal pal.” In the same respect, I don’t want to be “one of the guys” and invade your personal time with your friends. We both had friends and lives before meeting so I don’t expect that we just forget about all that. It’s important for us to continue to cultivate our own interests.
I will not nag you or complain about every little thing in life that goes wrong. Life is too short to waste time focusing on ")all the bumps in the road. (br /)
There will be more laughter and smiles than arguing and frowns in our relationship. The memories of the good times will get us through the rough times. I believe that love endures through the good and the bad, it’s not a fairy tale.
I will stand beside you, support you and cheer you on during all the up and downs of life and your successes, big or small.
I will not ever make you feel like less of a man or try to compete with you (unless we’re playing a video game or a board game in which case I will obliterate you…with hugs and kisses).
I will wow you with my vast (and sometimes obscure) knowledge of what’s going on in the world and hopefully make you laugh.
You won’t ever have to decipher any hidden codes or messages about what I’m thinking, etc. I will just tell or show you.
I will accept a compliment with a “thank you” and a smile.
I will always see the good in you even your perfect imperfections. I will guarantee that I’m not perfect and continue to be a work in progress but will always strive to be the best I can be.
So that’s basically, in a brightly colored nutshell, what you get with me.
