About me: I am an outgoing, fun, personality (I love breaking the ice and making others laugh) who falls in-line with the "opposites attract" mode of thinking. I may be a big buy but I have a TENDER HEART. I know what I want in my life and what I do and don't need, to be happy. I understand and appreciate that life doesn't deal in ideal scenarios but that we can become the creator of our circumstances rather than its creature through faith, obedience to gospel principles and preparation.
I am getting back into the whole fitness thing, training to lose the weight necessary to allow me to run and bike and enjoy the outdoors more as a lifetsyle. I'm not an ironman but yes I do appreciate being physically active. My goal is to lose 130+lbs. I am currently keeping a diary on my quest which I hope to turn into a book that can help inspire/motivate others.
I'm a BYU grad, I cheer for the Cougars!!!!(br (span="" style="background-color:yellow;")/)
My ethnic make up is this: I'm half Scottish, quarter Polish/Lithuanian mix, an eighth Welsh and an eighth English.
I love to live a balanced life and being active. I enjoy the outdoors,traveling, College Football, making people laugh and the simple pleasures in life. I'm a genuine person with a heart of gold and my biggest dream is to be sealed in the temple to an eternal companion and have a family with my future spouse. I believe that the greatest use of free agency is pursuing exactly what we desire in our hearts. ="font-weight:bold;")
I have been rejected by women in the church my whole life (but I have always kept trying and I'm not ashamed of the fact or any undeserved stigma that comes with it) and I am now considered "too old" for the YSA wards and I live in a place where it is hard to meet and date women in the church since there are so few members of the church out here. This may be my last hope of getting married in the temple to a woman in the church. But I am not a quitter! (see quote above) I am not by any means perfect nor am I looking for someone who is perfect or thinks they are. I think imperfection can actually add to the appreciation of another person.
Update: Ladies, there are Christlike ways of letting a man know that you aren't interested. Ignoring a man is not Christlike, but actually pretty degrading to us and hurtful. We have feelings too. There is nothing wrong with politely saying you aren't interested.
