I'm actually looking to date to find someone I can call my best friend and be hers in return. The woman I fall in love with gets all of my heart, and that forever. I love laughing and know how to stick it out when things get tough, and my children are my life. I am widowed. Yes, long ago now I experienced losing the love of my life. Our children were 4 and 1 then, and I have raised them on my own. I want true love and the joy it brings again in our lives. I want to trust someone like they can trust me. I want someone who doesn't quit, and who loves her children no matter what. I will never break your heart. Nothing will be more dear to me.
I have learned a great deal from my heartache and less than desirable experiences. I love every experience that I have had down here! How I love the Savior! I know that there is no heartache that He can't comprehend completely, and that there is no heart that He cannot heal. He is everything. He is my Captain.
I am a big tease! i love seeing people laugh and love to be the one making them laugh! I really like it when someone can tease me back! I'm a big fan of pretty eyes and pretty smiles! I don't believe in being false or in giving false praise. If I give you a compliment, it's genuinely sincere! I like a woman who is secure enough with herself to let me hold the door for her, pay for the date, hold her when her heart is heavy, then make her laugh and fill it with hope! I never run from a fight, so in the worst of times I will always be standing next to her.
I think the ideal relationship starts as a friendship, turns into being best friends, and eventually becomes something everlasting. i believe whole heartedly in "true love" and in "love stories". And i don't mean the kind where two "perfect people" fall in "perfect love" and live "perfectly happy" ever after. That's not how it works. It takes a lot of sweat and hard work and it's never perfect, or easy. I don't believe in settling when it comes to love and I believe it should be passionate! (IE...The Notebook...which is great movie by the way!) Not cookie-cutter-ish.
I love being a father, but, having done it for so long on my own, I feel no shame in saying that it's a miracle I'm not completely insane by now! I love my kids completely though. I have recently begun to foster one of my nephews who had been handed a tough-lot in life. I love children! I grew up with a step dad(He's my dad to me) and love him to death as he loves us! If I marry again she will get all of my heart as will her children, if she has any! This is true.
