I am very active and busy but like down time with family and good friends and can handle being alone to recharge the batteries. Would like to meet someone who is free spirited and doesn't worry too much what others think about her because she knows she is on the right track for her. Someone not afraid to think, who has opinions and wants to share them so that we can compliment and learn from each other. It would be nice sharing thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams, jokes or just relaxing in each other's arms. I can make small talk, but only for so long.
I live in Orem, Utah near BYU, have 4 great kids ages 20 to 32 (no grandkids yet). My wife passed away two years ago. We were both strong and it only took us 25 years to appreciate our differences, but we did and it was great the last seven years. I appreciate strength now that comes with kindness and communication. I am adventurous and spontaneous by nature, and like to take calculated risks with a great partner; Not crazy but not toooo much into playing it safe; two people can do almost anything when they pull together and support each other. I don't have all the answers----yet :) but I enjoy working on it. I know God loves us loooooots. Have seen some things from the other side which is both a blessing and a trial--- there are many things that are both strengthening yet difficult to reconcile in this world. Believe we were sent here to find out how caring and courageous we are in the middle of the battle. God really is happy in spite of the fact that we basically don't get it down here. Believe two people who want to put their heads and hearts together can create fun, exciting, meaningful adventures throughout eternity.
I love to travel and have been to many places and want to go to many more (including missions). I am loyal to my family and friends. I joined the church when I was 30 and was looking for the true church because I knew it would have a plan for what marriage was supposed to be. It has meant everything to me. I love the ocean and beaches, probable because I was raised in California and Florida and was a navy diver for a while. I know there are many good things out there and would like to try many of them with a great, kind, sweet companion. We can fall down together trying, but we will help each other up every time. Don't really want to take a year just to find out if a relationship won't work. Believe there has to be something strong there from the beginning, and then if we are attracted to each other we will want to develop the relationship further. A little honesty, openness, kindness and sharing our real selves can save us both a lot of time and heartache. At our age if the first date isn't good, we proooooobably know the second one won't be either. Hope we can be ourselves and not what we think we are supposed to be. I love to laugh and be silly and kind and not take ourselves too serious. Don't believe we need to live in the land of past fears but can have new beautiful beginnings.
I work for a home building company and enjoy working in the field and the freedom and physical nature of it and working with owners and contractors. I was a painting and remodeling contractor. I am not well off financially; just average, but truly believe if two people can live in two separate households and make it that they should be able to live in one household and be much better off. Trying to be honest. I like security and a degree of comfort and beauty ( especially since I was a remodeling contractor and designer) but a relationship built on things is a substitute for a real relationship.Please write if you are only concerned about an eternal relationship that is mutually supportive, caring, trusting, sharing, fun and totally seriously- silly involved.
Good luck in your effort to find the one who is not perfect,but is perfect for you. Eternity will be a lot better with a kind, caring, open person who will love you like the Savior does; at least eventually.
