Hi, my name is Chad and I'm a Mormon. Sorry... wrong ad campaign.
I guess I would describe myself as shy, nostalgic, occasionally funny, and always loyal to the people I care about. Honestly a little lost in this never ending economic downturn, I guess I'm still searching for my path in this unpredictable world. I recently completed a master's program in criminology from Arizona State University in an effort to expand my horizons. I will probably end up a civil servant or a garbageman if my prior academic interests in aviation fail to ever payoff.
I am here on this site because I'm hoping to meet my soul mate- a funny blind woman who craves a poverty-stricken life. Please contact me if you or anyone else you might know fits that description.
If you're on here searching for a good looking guy with a bunch of money to sweep you off your feet and solve all of your problems, please keep looking elsewhere because I am definitely not your guy. However, if you are looking for a nice guy to share a few laughs with and maybe build a friendship that could turn into more, I'd love to be your guy. I guess I'm hoping to meet a simple girl who is still searching for her path in life, too. Perfect people who have everything figured out honestly annoy me.

How I feel about the Church: It's undeniably true. I was born of goodly parents who taught me to love and appreciate the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of that love, I served a mission and have remained active throughout my life. I am far from perfect, but I do try to live my faith. I must admit that I'm not a big fan of Mormon culture, though. Jello and carrots are not a magical combination, and I don't believe that I need wussy EFY soundtracks or daily viewings of Saturday's Warrior to keep my spiritual fire burning. Furthermore, I hate MoTab music with an unrighteous passion. I seriously cannot stand watching old people bellow out hymns and contemporary hits with plastic smiles on their faces. I also find church dances to be both sad and stupid, and the same goes for the high school drama that plagues most singles wards. If you agree with me, awesome. If not, feel free to pray for my lost soul. Heaven knows I could use all the help I can get.

*Please don't freak out if I look at your profile, especially if you're way younger/older or cooler than me. I'm not psychic, so I often find it hard to judge compatibility from a tiny profile photo without clicking on it.
**I hate camping! I only mention this fact because nearly every girl on this site claims to fancy this bazaar, primeval ritual. If it's wrong to appreciate a warm bed and a daily shower, I don't want to be right.
***If by chance we ever become friends, I will require you to lie about how we met. ANY fictional story, including meeting in a mental institution or jail, would sound better than admitting to partaking in the hopeless desperation of online dating. Thanks for your cooperation in advance.
