Hey, my name is Bridget. I am an independent single Mom and support myself by working full-time. I also go to school but both are secondary to being a Mom and active in the Gospel. I have one son. I attend the temple regularly (once a week, sometimes twice a week) and I love it.
I was born and raised in the church and my parents let me spread my wings and fly. I made some different decisions, but I know how the Lord can do miraculous things if we ask and if we want those things; He is just waiting for us to ask, He is always there.
I like to have fun, who doesn’t?! I appear serious without even knowing it (I think it’s a Boston thing). I would like someone that will help bring out my fun side more, because I love to laugh. I’m not good at conversations that are only on the surface, I prefer a deeper conversation and at times contemplation of God’s many blessings. I have received many, many tender mercies and signs from Heavenly Father that I am doing the right thing and I know He will continue to guide me as I continue to put my faith in Him.(br (span="" style="background-color:yellow;"))I’ve come to the conclusion that if being a good Mom means being single in this life, then that’s what I will be, because I will not settle for someone that is not a good fit. I want someone in my life that is an asset, not a liability; someone that will enhance our world not bring drama and confusion to it. There is too much going on in the world and it’s so important for a married couple to be on the same page with the things that matter, that I will wait until the Lord sends me the perfect man for me; it is a promised blessing and I know it will happen, but I am doing my part by looking anyway…because you just never know when it will happen.
Although I am independent, please don’t mistake that for I want to take care of you and let you play video games all day; I don’t even let my son do that! Well, I take care of him, but he does his chores and schoolwork before any play time.
(br (span="" style="background-color:yellow;")/)I am looking for someone who is independent and knows what they want. If you haven’t been single for a period of time and if you haven’t had the chance to figure out yourself as a single man, I am not the girl for you. It’s important to know who you are alone, so you don’t get lost when you are in a relationship, you also need to know what value you can add and where you are lacking, to find the right person that you are comfortable to let that guard down and ask for help with. I’ve been alone for many years by choice so I am in no rush for the wrong guy. I’ll wait as long as I have to for the right one for me.
Although I have one son, I am open to the possibility of having another child (if it’s a mutual decision and my future husband finds me before I am 70). I also appreciate blended families and can relate, for obvious reasons.
I am tall and while I appreciate that love is blind, let’s be completely honest, looks do matter – that’s why we all have profile pictures! I'm not looking for perfect…I am not perfect (not by a long shot) I just want someone that is perfect for me, and me him; and I do want to be attracted to him. People come in all shapes and sizes, and I prefer a guy that is tall, confident; but not cocky – it’s an awful turn-off, kind and honors his priesthood. He must also be loyal, trustworthy, and faithful – you know the scout motto and the articles of faith all rolled into one. That guy will one day will enter into a temple of the Lord with me and my son (and maybe even his own family) and we will have an eternal marriage to last through it all. We will be there for each other on the tough days and on the bright sunny days. We will have shared responsibilities of household duties and I will support you in honoring your priesthood so that you will always be able to bless our family in a time of need. A tender heart is priceless. The list could go on and on. It’s not so much a checklist for the grocery store as it is a list of priorities that I have in my life and where I want my life to be in the future. That’s the glue that holds families together forever and that’s what I want.
What do you think? What do you want?
