Hello, my name is Ian :) I am a new convert (5/10/14) and am the only one in my small family that is a member. I am so grateful to have had the privilege of hearing about the Restored Gospel, I can't even begin to explain the impact it has had on me. Although being almost 33 years-old is still fairly young in the outside world, I know that the chances of meeting a nice girl with a strong testimony locally will be difficult. I don't really feel that I "fit-in" since I have tattoos, but that is ok, I have made my covenants keeping that in mind. I know Heavanly Father doesn't see them anymore, and I hope that my future mate will be able to look past them too.
I am a mature, down-to-earth man seeking someone positive, genuine, honest, and communicative. I'm very easy to get along with and am generally a jokster, but I can turn that off when the time calls for it. I'm open and honest to a fault. I will never agree just to fit in, however I can adapt to any type of crowd. Sometimes, I think that I am one of the few people left who don't gauge their success with a dollar amount, while still excepting it's importance. I love everything about children, and think we can learn from them. I am a lover and a fighter, not one or the other, and while I am allergic to drama, I love competition. I love traveling anywhere I have not been, and experiencing new cultures. I like trying new foods/restaurants, beach days, rainy days, camping, snow-boarding, or watching the occasional movie and ordering take-out. I LOVE all genres of music, but have some favorites..
What I'm looking for: substance, opinions, and compassion! Someone who has principles. Someone who lives the word of the Gospel. Someone who is motivated and has goals. These goals don't necessarily have to be career related, however one should always strive to be the best person they can be. I would really like to have a family that I can share the Gospel with.
