What's more complicated than dating? Being a Mormon Mom or Dad looking for a fun loving, loyal, faithful, Christlike eternal companion between callings, work, kids, activities and general life occurrences.......all on the Internet with perfect strangers. That's definitely harder than just regular dating. Am I right? If only we could meet people in person in our everyday lives. Unfortunately, where I live and work and my kids go to school.... There aren't a lot of single, priesthood holding, potential eternal companions. So online it is.
I have two amazing kids. They are in middle school and yet, there's no way I'm old enough to have two middle schoolers. No way. I work full time in a job that I love. I get to visit elementary schools all day long and help bring reading programs and books to students and teachers. I live a few miles away from the Temple, which makes me very happy. I joined the church at 21 and it was the best decision I have ever made.
I miss having a best friend. Someone to laugh with and share life with. Someone to have adventures with and one day serve a mission with. The further away from my divorce I get, the more I realize Heavenly Father doesn't want us to be alone; even if I've gotten very comfortable with it. I know it's more important to be a best friend, to be inspired by love and companionship. I'm hoping I can be that for someone as well as find that for myself.
What's your story? I'd love to know.
