I love kids, sports, music, reading, writing, camping, and hiking. I admit to liking science and math (at the same time, even). I play the guitar, cello (mediocre) and piano (terribly!) and sing (not too badly) some of which I may do all at the same time. I love to laugh and would love to learn many languages. One day I would love to see the world.
I have plenty of faith that somehow my divorce didn't interrupt our Heavenly Father's plan for me and my kids. I am grateful for the Gospel and the many blessings I see everyday. I am a glass half full person so I know that everything will be sorted out at the right time. I will admit that I am a little bit scared to be back out "there", so it's a good thing that I'm brave!
My kids are an interesting assortment from ages 9-17. I have adult children outside the home as well. With three girls and two boys left at home, I know it will take a brave man to step in to lead a big family, especially knowing that they all eventually turn into teenagers! I believe in teaching kids to work hard. I think it is also important to take time out to enjoy life and create fun memories.
I am not looking for a "long walks on the beach" sort of fellow, although that can be fun in it's place. I am more the sort to be found with a boogie board out in the water or playing beach volleyball. I think it is important that a couple takes care of each other and am not looking for a one sided relationship. I also feel it is important that people have their own interests, and that it's okay if they are not all shared interests. It takes two, complete people to make a couple; not a "two halves make a whole" but rather a "two wholes make a complete package".
I am a believer in traditional roles. I like the idea of a couple that sings together, does fun things, long involved conversation, or quiet with no conversation but I'm not locked in on any set way to be together. I don't have too many deal breakers.....hygiene is good, so is having a regular job, being kind, and still having a spark for adventure.
I will neither confirm nor deny the rumors that I may have been behind some interesting practical jokes and that they may have been a little bit brilliant.
