I am focused on righteousness. I have a good sense of humor, I am honest, intelligent, hard working, and pleasant. Great people and events are on my path - and in case you are wondering, I figure that I will mention that one of these great people is a very special someone ;)
The Lord and my family are most important to me. I am the third of six children, and we are all very close. I have been blessed with three amazing children (boy, girl, boy, 13, 11, and 10 years old), and they stay with me about 65% of the time.
I have a house, as well as a steady job at a company I have been working with for over ten years. But I might move sometime. Or get a different job. Or maybe even both. Or neither. :)
I served in the South Africa, Cape Town Mission, and I am a worthy priesthood holder that goes to the temple regularly. I will not accept anything other than a temple marriage.
The most important characteristic of the woman I seek is her spirituality. Some other important characteristics are a pleasant personality, good sense of humor, above average intellect, and physical attractiveness. The desire to be a mom, and a love of children, good music and reading are also very important traits. And if she is a good cook, that is definitely nice, too ;)
I think that it is more about who one is with - rather than the actual activity - that brings the most joy. Of course it is important to have fun, too - but joy is more important to me than just fun.
If you want to read a list of things that I particularly enjoy, then the next paragraph will probably interest you - otherwise you might want to just skip it ;)
Thus, without further delay or rambling or going on and on or repeating myself or saying the same thing multiple times ;) ... Here are some things that I enjoy: being a dad, martial arts, reading (by myself as well as with others, such as with my children), being with family and friends, writing, thinking, exercising, listening/singing to music, having good conversations, going to the temple and to church, hiking, clean and appropriate jokes/humor, puzzles, looking at the sky/clouds/stars/nature, and the list of activities goes on... except the list doesn't really go on, because I am not listing more :)
If you have questions or want to talk, please send me a message; or if you send me a smile and I think that we might 'click', I can send you a message "first" :)
