Hey, I’m Derek. Just looking to ease myself back into the dating scene. I’d guess it’s a similar story for most of us.
I’ve learned a lot the past few years, and have matured more than I ever thought possible. More than anything else, I want to have a family someday centered on the gospel. I’m hoping to find a girl who shares that same goal, and I’m using every means I can to make it happen! I'm a BYU graduate, applying for a bunch of different grad schools right now. I love music, sports, pretty much anything outdoors, getting a workout, and I've always been way active in the church.
One thing I’ve learned through my experience is that it takes two people to make a relationship work. So, I’m hoping to meet someone who shares that same sense of commitment and loyalty to what’s important. Whether she already is a mom or lives far away, I'm really not too judgmental about all that.
Now, if I haven’t scared you off yet…. Haha definitely send me a message! I don't get on here a ton, so there's a possibility if you don't send me something I'll never know who you are. :P I'm one of the more carefree people you'll ever meet, and don't feel the need for drama. So let's just chat and see what happens!
My testimony: I think this is probably the most important thing I can include on my online profile. I've been through some tough times the past couple years. I've had to lean on the Savior and trust in Him more than I ever had. I have come to see how great he blesses us just for never giving up on what is most sacred. I know the Lord is there for us, and He truly does comfort His people. I know we all have divine worth which extends beyond this life, no matter how insignificant we may feel sometimes... and I know the Lord can help us realize our potential and gain meaning in our lives we never realized could exist. I know the church contains the restored truth, and living the gospel everyday is what brings me true joy.
