Greetings fellow seekers of love! It would appear that I am here for the same reason that you are: because I seek an intimate and lasting friendship/lovership with someone who will embrace me for who I am and vice versa; someone to walk by my side this rest of way, because, it turns out it's not as fun to go it alone, and also slightly harder to create a family (at least in the way I've always wanted to.) Mind you, I feel the secret to happiness is the ability to be happy despite not getting exactly what you want in the timeframe you want it, so I am content now, but I do think there are grander things that can only be learned through the process of really getting to know another person for years.
By day I work at a literary agency helping review publishing contracts for writers who actually make $ from their writing, by night and by weekend I work as a poet/aspiring shamaness/reiki practitioner/yogi/energy healer/armchair-astrologer/underground techno-loving DJ. I was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in Salt Lake City, and have been fortunate to have lived and traveled all over the world, even managing to pick up a language or two along the way. I have respect for and interest in all traditions and people as there is goodness to be found everywhere, and as all truth converges. I am also passionate about protecting this beautiful planet we have been given - about treating all living beings, plants and animals with the respect they deserve. It seems clear to me that there is existence because of love; God - IS love. And forgiveness. And light. Seeking man with inclinations towards same, whose breed of Mormonism perhaps may not look exactly like received cultural assumptions of what being a Mormon is. Or at least doesn't contain judgement towards those who may not practice exactly in the same way.
In truth, I panic when I feel confined or get any sense that I may be acting based on a need to conform, any way other than sincerely. This - and sheer curiosity perhaps - led me to burst away from Mormonism for a good ten years or so. I am back because I believe: plain and simple. Let's do this. Looking forward to meeting you. (And, what's your sun sign? I care, I really do.)
