Welcome to my page! I do hope that you are reading this now and not "just looking," although that too is appreciated and I'm flattered. I understand that physical attraction is truly the first step to judging whether a person is worth your time or not, and hopefully I have passed your assessment and you now find yourself reading my greeting. Though I understand if otherwise. Apparently it takes a certain kind to catch a man's eye, and let me tell you, I am a certain kind, just perhaps a different one.
There are a great deal of interests that I hold including art, literature, history, pop culture, foreign culture, travel, adventure, amusement parks, passenger trains, cooking, entomology, PEOPLE. My absolute favorite thing is to go somewhere crowded and just people watch, musing on the things that must have brought a person to where they are at that very moment. Learning from people if I possibly can. It is so fascinating the things a person can learn if they just take time to slow down and observe the kaleidoscope of life around them. And then act on it! I am currently learning the extent of my bravery by being in Alaska. It's so far away from my home town of Idaho Falls and was definitely an impulse decision. A scary one. Dating is a scary one. Which is probably why it seldom happens for me.
I am in my mid 20s now and have yet to hold a romantic relationship with another person. I have found that many in my own age group are shallow, selfish, greedy, foolish and very stubborn, and generally all at the same time. Please feel free to prove me wrong. I'm looking for someone who is compassionate, understanding, decisive, driven, good humored, hopeful, but also someone flawed. I don't want a cookie cutter guy. I want someone I can grow and develop with in all aspects of life. I want someone I can bestow my love and devotion on and who is willing to do the same for me. If asked to describe my perfect date, it would be, "Be ready by 8am. We're going to breakfast." Any guy who is willing to get up early to take me out for my favorite meal is worth a thousand guys who would take me to lunch or dinner, when it's convenient. Especially
if breakfast were followed by an adventure on a hiking trail or through the field where he had his first job moving pipe or, as previously mentioned, to some crowded place where we can people watch together.
On a heavier note, I haven't been the most devout follower of the church. The gospel is rooted deep in my soul, and always will be despite the fact that I haven't participated publicly in some 5 years now. I've made stupid choices in my life, as we all do. Falling away from the church being what I feel is the worst of them. But I know with every vibration of every atom in my body that I still hold Christ's love, and He mine. It is a part of me that must be wholly accepted and embraced by whomever I choose to ultimately spend eternity with. This is one part of me that I absolutely will not compromise for. I know the power that the priesthood holds and cannot deny it. It is a necessity. As is forgiveness.
I feel like I'm leaving things out, but I'll end by saying, while I am open to any and all suitors who would like to engage me in conversation, I find it difficult to respond once someone pulls out the good old, "looking for a good time" phrase. This churns my stomach and all communication will end. As well as if you ask for pictures. I've found that only slimes ask for more than they already have access to. I do hope a gentleman such as yourself is good enough to oblige these requests. I'd also like you to know that I have been %100 true and genuine in my greeting, so if any part of it does not sit well with you, don't waste time. Move along.
I'd like to get to know you despite age, distance, ethnicity build, personal history, etc. I'd like to know YOU. :)
