I was born and raised in the great state of Louisiana but have lived all over. I love sports, eating out, tv, traveling, family, outdoors, and I always try and take the time to do what is right and help others.
I'd make a great partner because I first and foremost have a strong testimony, and I am very proud to hold the priesthood. I'm very affectionate, loving, and about as loyal as can be. I am a very positive person, and I do what I can to spread it to others. I'm serious if the situation dictates, but I rarely ever pass up the opportunity to joke around and make everyone laugh!
I want to share love with a special someone for all of eternity, and I feel blessed that our Father has blessed us with opportunity to do so! I believe that all women are Celestial Princesses and should be treated as such.
I am very respectful, and I believe in good manners and courtesy. I am old fashioned in the sense that a man should always be kind to his woman, going the extra mile to open up doors for her, tell her how beautiful she is, pull out chairs, or letting her have the sweater off my back if she is cold. I'm a Southern gent!
I did 3 combat deployments with the Marine Corps Infantry, graduated from LSU, and Inow teach SpecialEducation.
I have a very strong testimony, and I would not trade having the gospel in my life for anything else in the world. It is truly the only REAL reason we are here, right? What else really is there?
I was not raised very close to the Church at all, and I learned 99% of what I know about the gospel after the age of 27. From that time on I have always had a strong testimony, and I could never see myself wavering far away from it.
It is my main goal in life to always be worthy of my Priesthood, so I can be there for my future wife and kids when they need me. I am full of love, and I have a lot of it to give!
I am the type of man that will try just about anything once within reason. I love to hang out with my family, watch sports, go on walks and enjoy the outdoors, go on road trips, go to the movies, eat out at nice restaurants...etc. I also enjoy just sitting at home on some nights and watching some tv. I love The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. They are my favorite tv shows of all time.
I have always wanted to take up cooking, and I am finally teaching myself. I am pretty darn good and make the best chili ever!
I am very mature when it calls for it, but I am also kind of a big kid. I still love being silly and doing things such as making prank calls, and I have always enjoyed being a comic. Don't mistake that for me being irresponsible. Nothing could be further from the truth! I get all my bills paid, and it doesn't take much to make me happy to begin with
