Heavenly Father's plans for our lives include some high-acceleration plot twists, and the one I've been sensing coming for a while has arrived: I'm moving very soon from my beloved California to Logan, Utah to try this grad school thing again. I'll be doing a PhD in Electrical Engineering. I didn't even apply to this program; I just got recruited to help with a specific project that I'm not even qualified for (yet)! So my life will be in mental-adjustment mode for a while.
Hi, I'm McKay. I'm very analytical and prone to geeking out over diverse things: fiction franchises, linguistics, instrumental music, the workings of the natural world ... you name it. In general company I have to keep much of this to myself for the sake of social flow. But I really value the friendships where I can let it out.
I'm pretty low-key and don't need lots of adventurous novelty to keep me interested in life; I like to think that "deep minds are easily amused." That doesn't mean I don't love the occasional camping trip or (given time & money) won't be curious to explore exotic places of the world now and then. But don't count on me craving skydiving or test-driving a Harley.
I adore ultimate frisbee, designing tabletop games or other odd creative projects, and good fantasy literature. A lot of pop culture goes in one ear and out the other without making an impression. I'm a stodgy conservative in California and a blazing liberal in Utah.
I understand the theory of being happy with single life without needing that to change, but let's be honest: It is not good for man to be alone. I believe my marriage will be like the quote that's been going around social media: "A strong marriage rarely has two strong people at the same time. It is a husband and wife who take turns being strong for each other in the moments where the other feels week." So, I'm really looking forward to the emotional stability, as well as the personal growth, of finally finding my eternal best friend.
I come from an awesome family and my parents' relationship indicates good things about how my marriage will be. Oh, and my nieces indicate that my kids will be adorable, too.
I'm looking for someone who makes me laugh and laughs at my snark; lives a well-rounded lifestyle; someone with great physical chemistry with me; and most of all, someone who helps me cultivate an attitude of gratitude that will strengthen my relationship with God and find joy every day.
