I believe there are 6 essential elements to a good relationship: Certainty, Uncertainty-Variety, Significance, Connection-Love, Growth, and Contribution. I believe as long as you have these 6 things present in your relationship, it will stay strong.
I believe in God. I believe that he loves us. I believe that Jesus Christ is his only begotten son. I believe that living my life in tune with the Spirit and following the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ will provide the best possible life I can imagine. With that being said, I question everything. I have not come to these beliefs simply by being born into them; I have struggled and sought answers down many paths. Every time I’ve strayed from the Gospel, I’ve inevitably returned with a stronger testimony of its truthfulness.
I am looking for an amazing woman to share my life with, someone who will understand my questions and support me to find answers. Someone who will discuss deep topics and explore the universe together. I value growth and learning. Someone who is strong and soft, passionate and kind, loving and loyal. Someone who will keep me interested, even after 50 years together. Someone to share this life with, and prepare for the next. Someone who brings out the best in me. Someone who brings out my silly side. Someone who knows how to make me laugh and does it often. Someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously.
My priorities: God, my Wife, my Children, my Family, my Friends. I believe that you must give 100% to your spouse, expecting nothing in return. Your children, although precious, will one day grow up and leave your home, but your spouse will be with you forever. I believe you will do more good for your children by being an amazing example than all the lectures in the world.
I hunger and thirst for righteousness. I seek a life full of joy, kindness, peace, passion, growth, adventure, fun, and health. I try to be clean in my mind, in my actions, in my home, and in my body. I love to eat healthy, workout when necessary, and stay as active as possible. I see God in nature and love sunsets and walking barefoot in the grass.
I enjoy a simple life and know that the little things are what make us truly happy. I am also a dreamer. I have plans and goals for my future and am actively working towards them. I am an avid learner and love discovering new things. I read, but not as much as I would like. I enjoy a good movie and a good TV show, but I don’t watch TV, I wait for the DVD and watch it later.
I have two wonderful kids, a son who is 13 and a daughter who is 9. I love them immensely, and structure my life in a way to help them in every way possible. My son is adopted. I love him as my own, and have no problem loving more (if you have children already). I believe families are the most important area to focus on in this life, and I take every opportunity to strengthen mine. I hope to someday have more kids (I love large families). I work as a consultant and travel a lot, but Utah is where I call home.
I much prefer to get to know you in person, rather than online (I tend to forget your answers online, and end up asking you the same questions in person :)
Hope to hear from you soon, I can’t wait to meet you!
(Boy, do I over use commas?)
