I love to dance. I love to move and groove on the dance floor—but especially love social dances like swing or salsa. I love to talk. Good conversation is more valuable to me than chocolate and flowers. Not that I mind either—but conversation first. It’s especially fun to listen to someone talk about what they are excited about, what motivates them and their passions. A good conversation, even about something I know nothing about, can keep me engaged for hours. I prefer long emails to short ones. While I’m not a wordsmith, I still enjoy word play, word meaning, and word games.
I love to serve. I love to have callings to serve in and occasionally find myself volunteering for extra responsibilities at church. I can’t always see the needs around me—but when I do see a need, I often try to fill it. This love of helping is probably why I became a Kindergarten teacher.
I’m slow to fall in love. I’m not the 3-months-to-marriage type, nor the meet-your-parents-on-a-second-date. I value conversation, getting to know the other person, and honestly—that takes time. I’m incredibly interested in marriage. But I don’t want to marry just anyone—I want to marry my best friend.
I’m not always in a rush to expose myself and to tell my life story, but I am honest and open. You can ask me any sincere question, and I’ll answer it—with the exception of one question. Sorry, the government swore me to secrecy on that one.
There are many things I value greatly. Among these are education, responsibility, kindness, and temple worthiness. The gospel is also incredibly important to me, but I don’t see a way nor a need to prove it here. I think it shows in how I live my life. Get to know me, and you’ll see.
