I grew in California with four sisters in a gospel centered home that loved traditions. My mom made Frito pies on Halloween and homemade cider. Every New Year’s Eve we banged pots and pans on our street at midnight after filling ourselves full of Japanese food compliments of my dad’s mission recipes.
I never thought I would have a career outside the home yet prepared for a career studying business at BYU. It seemed like a practical option with a lot of variety. I have worked hard, have done well, and am lucky that I really like what I do most of the time. (span style="font-weight:bold;")I work from home which is lucky because it allows me to live where ever I want and travel to see my family often.
I now live in Boston but have lived in cities across the country. I love trying new things, exploring new places, and people that are up for an adventure. The gospel is the center of my world—not in an over the top preachy kind of way, but in a I’ve had too many real spiritual experiences with the Lord to be with someone that does not love the gospel too, kind of way. I am positive, driven, and love to laugh.
I am divorced. To be honest, it is still weird to even say the word. However, as I have grown up, one thing I have learned is not all divorces are created equal. Divorce was never an option for me and the story is sad.
You do not know me, but I do not quit. I am loyal, loving, and kind. Less than a year after our temple marriage, he left the church, me, and went back to a life of addiction. While I wish he would have made different decisions, I am in a good place now.
I do not typically share this personal information about myself with complete strangers with online dating it is inevitable.
I am the kind of person that makes lemonade. Going through any challenging situation leaves the opportunity for the gift of perspective. I now feel gratitude for the simplest pleasures in life. I have learned what true compassion means. While I would never wish the type of challenges I have faced on a soul, I am grateful for the person it helped me to become.
I have dated in the past few years but had a hard time finding guys that share my belief that relationships should start with fun casual dating and friendship. If it turns into something, that is great. I am obviously on here because eventually I want more but a good relationship for me evolves from enjoying time together.
I just completed my first Olympic triathlon benefiting cancer research and am looking forward to my next goal. Maybe a tough mudder? Maybe a half marathon? We'll see.
I am looking for a guy that likes to be physically active, is driven, does not take himself too seriously, and is committed to the gospel.
So that's a little about me. Your turn...
