Aside from a strong testimony of the gospel, the two qualities I value most in those around me are kindness and a good sense of humor. Probably like many people, I'm looking for someone who makes me laugh, wants kids, and is considerate of others.
I'm a little goofy and a lot nerdy. I'm finishing a PhD in literature with a specialty in Romantic Poetry (British poetry 1780-1850), and I teach university courses in literature and writing. There's very little I don't find interesting.
I like to cook, go to movies, and run. Every time I try to craft it's slightly disastrous--last time I made sugar cube igloos with my sisters mine was condemnable. I love to travel--I've been to England, Ireland, France, and Italy and would love to travel in India, China, and Iceland.
I don't think husbands and wives need to share all their hobbies but I hope to find someone who likes to think and talk about the world around us--a good debate is a lot of fun for me.
