I'm Jack. To the FAQ's...
Do I have 6 fingers on my right hand? Do you always begin conversations this way? Uh...I have the right number of everything at last inventory.
Why am I not married at age 41? Why do you want to know? ;-) I think it's the 6 fingers on my right hand. No, maybe it's B.O. and halitosis. If you REALLY want to know, I think I have some ideas...but you'll have to ask...
What am I looking for? A relationship that has potential to move to marriage and family. I'm ready. Physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially. But, I'm neither desperate, nor crazy.
What's important to me? Someone who is also ready for a relationship. Someone who is attractive, fit, healthy, and fun. Someone who is more interested in having and raising a family than clubbing. Play is great, but there is no one I would rather play with than my future wife and kids. And, my best rule..."Quid-Pro-Quo."
Do I have a good relationship with my Mother? My mother is a saint. She is the most genuinely loving person you will ever meet. She will smother you with hugs, kisses, and snapshots. She loves with her whole heart, and does so immediately. She is persistent, and there is no quit in her. I am grateful that throughout my life, I have never doubted whether or not my parents love me. They show it with time, prayers, conversations, attendance at important events, wise counsel when sought, wisdom, forgiveness, encouragement, sacrifice, and LOVE.
Do I believe in the Church? Am I active? Am I temple worthy? Yes. Yes. Yes. The Church is something I have never resented, shunned, or doubted. I have a strong testimony. I need my Savior everyday. I love Him. I learn more all the time. I will marry in the temple.
Am I really THAT old? Yes...and NO. And really, isn't that up to YOU? Anyway, I'm 41, but look 28. I took the Oprah suggested "Real Age" test (www.realage.com) and I'm apparently only 27. If I'm happily married, then I drop all the way to 22! Sweet! I can "keep up," whatever that means. For the record, I'm not worried about how old you are, whoever you are ;-) My philosophy: "The best age is the age you ARE. Because if it isn't, your life is an existence of constant deprivation." If you think I'm a caveman...oh brother. ;-)
One last thing: if you're not here in the USA, please don't take personal offense, but I won't respond. I'm done with the LONG distance thing.
