Looking for: similar ideas and concepts
I am looking for a partner, companion, and lover (not necessary meaning focusing in the context of sex-that is the icing on the relationship).
Someone to share the things, like a lubricant to make less restrictive, things that can be exciting in life: ex. waterfalls, a good restaurant, playing scrabble, digging in the garden, Clothes hung out in the fresh air, listening to the birds in the morning, feel the warmth of the sun, a walk after a rain, close your eyes and feel the wind as it embraces and kisses your face. Holding hands, a moment of silence and peace.
One that wants to learn new things and as much as possible from the bible and life.
One putting God first, prayer a must, loyal, faithful, compassionate, yoked together for things that happen good or bad.
One that offers an opinion, suggestion, and not afraid to do so.
One that can be passionate, merciful, understanding.
Humor can be dry (what else is there?), playful, upfront, serious like a child, and yet maybe a little corny. Predictable, but not really.
One capable of building the other one up and being supportive of ideas and circumstances and also family. The Bartholomew.
One that can take a stand, but not necessary stubborn or inflexible. Knowing the right thing to do and doing it.
One that understands a tear when it comes. Not quick to blame or jest.
One that is a soul mate, with a quick smile to each other, no one else knows about, that will make everyone wonder...

How about you?

Essays

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Do some volunteer activities or
Lunch/dinner at Sweet Tomatoes or
A nature walk/picnic in mountains and hike to a waterfall.

My past relationships have taught me...

What is most important?: communication, communication, communication. It is very difficult to read someones mind, frankly; cannot, will not, neither want to, as that is God's prerogative. So if there is something to say... Silence is not always golden.

We confess our faults to one another and our sins to God. By the way it is OK if there are skeletons in the closet as long as they stay there and don't affect the present and the future.

It takes 2 people willing and able to make a relationship work, if you don't have that, you don't have a relationship, applies in a spiritual realm too.

Trust is = When Words + Actions Match. Is there an evil twin giving double messages? If you truly love someone, we TOGETHER will overcome problems in the periphery.

When you love someone in a relationship, it is a decision or a choice, not an emotion. There are emotions in relationships, but these do not control the relationship.

Bloom where you are planted. Are you making lemonade with the lemons you are dealt?

How you see that a person treats people, animals, and lower life forms is how you will someday be treated, if the tide turns.

Having respect for yourself will also apply to respect for others.

Boundaries and limits need to be established in relationships.
Off limits to prying eyes are a woman’s purse and a man's billfold, this is an issue of trust and boundaries.

We wear different hats when we are raising our children as they start to mature, such as: caretaker, nurturer, protector, adviser, cheerleader, supporter, encourager, mentor, and sometimes the banker. This also applies to our intimate relationships too from family members. 2 people need to work things out, not the in-laws.

At times it is necessary to mirror a partner's actions. Especially if there are communication flaws. When they back off, so must you, if they move close, so must you.

To me, being an Adventist means...

Having a personal relationship with our Savior and prepare for the Lord's second coming. Help others to be drawn to and share His love. Matthew 24, Luke 21, Matthew 28.
Scripture is to prepare those to be ready when Jesus comes and how to prepare for His second coming. All stories and parables deal with this event. Scripture is applied for the current generation and will be fulfilled in more than one application.
I had searched for years to find a church that followed the Bible. My issue was: Jesus kept the Sabbath, why don't we?

In five years, I see myself

Clearer understanding and study of scripture in my life, especially regarding type and anti-type.
Share more of my life with someone really important and special.
Be prepared emotionally, physically and spiritually for coming events.

My favorite Bible passage is...

Philippians 4:4-8 Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice...
It continues to say that we need to focus on things that are pure, honest, true, honorable, and right. A lot of things we are exposed to either consciously and indirectly can lead us away from that closeness to Christ.

One final thing I'd like to mention...

It seems today that people lack commitment or glue in regards to relationships. It is similar to someone when you have a rental and they are very enthusiastic and impress you with their compliments and agree to everything (know the tune?)... then until it is no longer convenient to keep the vows they had so diligently make, leave you wondering, Who is this person? Do you know people like this?

In real estate, the term is location. In relationships it is communication.

Our American society deals very effectively with the Barbie & Ken physical syndrome mode. We rely mostly on a person's attributes that is only about 1 millimeter thick and not what is the real and the true makeup and attribute of that person. We rely too heavily upon feelings in relationships. Paul says "... rely on the inner man." We feel in love and when that runs its course, we no longer feel we are in love to that person.

intimate relationships should be based upon 1 Corinthians chapters 7 Marriage , chapters 12 and 14, Spiritual gifts, and most important chapter 13 Love.

In contrast to women and ladies. There are those who know they are ladies and deserve to be treated as such: Opening doors, cars and entrances, a fresh rose or flower from the garden. Not quite the knight, but a gentleman. He always has 2 handkerchiefs, one for his lady and one for him.
