I am very active and busy but like down time with family and good friends and can handle being alone for a reality check occasionally. Enjoy travel, responsibility, openness, good conversations especially about religion and philosophy and other people's thoughts, beliefs and interests. It's a good way to learn.Like to share and talk about a wide variety of things with someone who likes the same. Want to be able to talk about anything and everything with my wife. Am a little shy by nature but sincere. Very committed to Jesus Christ and the gospel, family and friends. Looking for someone who wants to commit to a relationship based on eternal happiness, family, service and has an eternal perspective about almost everything but who can enjoy today and who knows herself and what true religion is. I live in Orem, Utah near BYU, have 4 great children ages 19 to 30 (no grandkids yet). my wife of 32 years passed away last year and the special relationship we had I would like to share again with someone special. I am adventurous by nature, and like to take calculated risks;don't think heaven is boring or all work. Am spontaneous but stable.Think God loves us more than we know in this life. Like to think outside the box and consider all possibilities. Am philosophical and not toooooo conventional. Believe we were sent here to learn to be happy and help others find that once we have found it. God really is happy and has a great sense of humor. Believe two similar people who agree to put their heads 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 in my friendships and relationships. I believe we were sent here to learn and that is done a lot better with an eternal friend. I am a convert to the church and joined when I was 30 and was looking for the true church. it has meant everything to me. I love ocean beaches, probable because I was raised in California and Florida. Believe there are many good things out there and would like to try many of them at least once with a great companion. Life is funner and more meaningful shared. Even the celestial kingdom is not fun alone.Don't want to take a year to find out a relationship won't work. Believe two mature adults with the gospel and honesty can figure out whether they are attracted to each other sooner than that and then they can develop the relationship further. A little honesty and kindness and sharing our real selves can save both people time and emotional hardship. No games; I try to check my ego. I wouldn't be anything but myself even for the prophet. We are all the same and we are all in this together and can make a difference with real honesty and asking the Lord for help. Love and eternal friendships is what the celestial kingdom is all about. I love to laugh and love wit with kindness and to not take ourselves too serious. Don't believe we need to live in the land of past fears but can have new beautiful beginnings. Try not to sweat the small things and most stuff is small; or is nothing really small?. I've been a navy diver and am now 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 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 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; both are great.
Keep trying and good luck. If you were hurt in a relationship before keep trying; never, ever give up. Like Einstein said, eternity is not just a long time. So every day is important and counts towards the future. Not all the fish out there are barracudas; there are more dolphins than you might think. Eternity will be a lot better with a kind, caring,interesting person, who is without guile and who will love you like the Savior does; at least eventually.
