Hey y'all. What's crack-a-lackin'?
Rule #1 in dating: I have confidence in me! I'm a little troubled by all these "I only came on here because my mom told me to..." type introductions on people's profiles. If you're striving to live the Gospel and an eternal family is your goal, then you're an awesome person and if someone on here doesn't recognize that, then that's THEIR loss! Don't forget that.
Yes, I'm in the Army. But don't let the uniform fool you: beneath that militaristic facade, there's a HUGE nerd. I love watching old episodes of The Simpsons, Futurama, and Mystery Science Theater 3000. I'm not much into videogames, following sports, or watching TV. Most of my free time is spent outside, as I'm an avid hiker and I love to travel and explore new places, see new sights and take in new experiences. Photography, blogging, running, lifting, swimming (I'm a dismal swimmer, but it's fun to get wet!), biking and (of course) hiking are my pastimes of choice. I'm also working on a master's degree online, and that eats up plenty of my time.
I graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering from BYU in 2010 and have been serving in the Army ever since. With my luck, I got sent to White Sands, a tiny, isolated outpost in the middle of the desert. I make the long journey to the nearest city every Sunday to go to church, which is always the high point of my week. I also love going to the temple, and I try to visit the closest temple whenever I’m traveling. So far, I've been inside twenty-two! I served a mission in Uruguay (2005-2007) and have a great love for Latin American culture and the Spanish language. Por cierto, si entiendes ésto, ya tienes un punto a tu favor!
You’ll win major points with me if you know the meaning behind "KILO7451175" (note: that's super-important!) I think intelligence, low-maintenance, independence, assertiveness, patience, wisdom, kindness and honesty are all super-attractive traits.
I’m very open and candid. I won’t pretend to be someone else to get people to like me. What you see is what you get. So, if you like what you see, don’t be afraid to contact me. I’m always down for meeting new people, as it is a great excuse to travel!
