This whole dating/looking for someone really is exhausting (especially at my age) and I personally wish I could just wiggle my nose and bypass all the get to know yous and rejections, and just get to that peaceful, happy I'm at home feeling with that special someone. But since I live in the real world I will do my best to struggle through this by exercising faith, hope, patience and prayer.
I am just a normal, single mom looking for a loving, faithful, respectful relationship with a man who shares my same beliefs. I can no longer have children, but would be willing to love yours and mine. I have high hopes for finding a sincere, appreciative, honest, faithful, loving, caring, responsible, hard working, worthy priesthood holder that would love to one day spend the rest of his life and eternity with me.
I was born and raised in the church but fell away by the time I was 19. I have made some wrong choices in my life - thank goodness for the atonement and repentance. I have returned to activity in the church and I have finally felt at peace. The silly little things that kept me from church attendance like fear of bearing my testimony, holding a calling or giving a talk (oh and don't forget the 3 hours I couldn't bear) - I now embrace. Sharing my testimony has resulted in four baptisms within a 90 day period just this summer (2012), which has been very exciting but also exhausting since I sat in every discussion with all four investigators. I love the gospel and bearing my testimony always chokes me up. I NEVER want to go inactive again.
I am thoughtful of others. I am very affectionate and desire affection in return. I am faithful, fairly reasonable to get along with, and a great listener. My heart is tender but not weak or naive. I am not very spontaneous - I like to plan ahead if possible. I am somewhat organized and like my place clean, but not always easy with little ones. I sometimes wish I was more carefree, but I am more on the serious side. Don't get me wrong, I can be pretty goofy at times. I can cook, but would prefer to wash dishes all day long if "you'd rather cook". I am drawn to those that can make me laugh or feel at ease. I love to laugh, but I am not a jokester.
I enjoy relaxing at home and go out every now and then to a movie or dinner. I am not a high maintenance gal and can live modestly on a tight budget. I enjoy watching a great movie, spending time with my children and quality time with family. I love doing little things for those I love.
I am up for trying most any activity my date is interested in, but I am not going to fib and say I am active doing all these activities that I just can't afford to do or find the time to do because that's not me. Honestly, I am home bound most of the time raising my little girl full-time on a very limited budget since I am not working at the moment. I have an Associates Degree and have marketable skills such as medical transcription and legal secretary on my resume and worked full-time for 20 years. My ideal job would be straight typing transcribing a novel or something exciting because I do love to type and am pretty fast at it.
I like to scrapbook, cross-stitch and do easy crafts. I enjoy going to a good flea market or yard sale. I love animals, but I don't own any indoor pets. When tempers flare and both parties are talking in circles, I tend to walk away to cool down. I don't throw things when I get upset. I avoid being around people that cuss.
I am looking for someone who can love me for who I am and overlook my past mistakes and return all the love and affection, respect and so forth that I have to offer.
