I am beyond blessed to call the islands home. I currently live on Oahu and am passionate about living the island life. I'm the youngest of 5 kids and was raised strong in the church in California.
I am friendly, kind, fun-loving, active and outdoorsy. I love to dance, and am happiest outdoors in nature doing water or mountain activities. I also enjoy sports, languages, cultures, music, instruments, food, photography, reading, animals, children, family, the gospel, the temple…not necessarily in that order.
I'm a good listener, encouraging and nurturing. I'm a nonjudgmental person and love everyone for the good traits that they have. I am a positive, silly, and generally happy person. I'm practically perfect in every, of course. ;) J/k.
I have worked with both children (as a teacher) and animals (as a vet tech/dolphin drainer), training both for different reasons. ;) My dream job is to do Dolphin-assisted therapy as well as other animal-assisted therapy in the future. I am presently a substitute teacher with the luxury of creating my own schedule.
I really value beauty in creations, faith in God, the word of wisdom, and companionship. I'm looking for a guy with a similar heart who's also an easy-going, positive person with strong moral values who could be my best friend and partner for life and beyond.
Living on an island is a dream come true, but I am looking to expand my island horizons to find people with similar character and moral (span style="font-weight:bold;")values (it's difficult to find this on the island).
Important to note for those interested in a serious relationship:
Building a solid foundation of friendship and getting to know someone thoroughly before getting serious is important to me. I don't mind at all getting to know someone online. I think that's a fine start for all the "getting to know you stuff" in the beginning. If things really look like there is serious potential, then traveling and visits would be in order. I am the type of person to want to meet in person and spend a good amount of time getting to know the other person and visa versa in various situations before considering a serious future.
That means I would be willing to travel to meet someone and would likewise want someone who is able to travel to spend time where I live as well. I take time to get to know someone and value that process as a part of a strong foundation for a lifetime and hopefully an eternal relationship.
Now, if you're interested in a more casual friendship or, "get to know you" type of relationship situation, I'm open to that since it's difficult to find a great deal of people with strong morals on the island.
I hope that makes sense and helps define what I am looking for on this site. If it doesn't, feel free to ask questions!
I am looking forward to meeting you! :)
