I am looking for someone who puts God first, will cherish me and will just enjoy making my life special and complete.

I am a very caring, stable, affectionate, friendly, loving and committed man, who will remain faithful to the end. I need a women who can do the same. I would like to have a lady who finds in me what she has always hoped for in a life long friend, soul mate, cherished companion, lover and spiritual leader and can share her love passionately. I am looking for an active lady who is physically and emotionally in good health and weight, intelligent, attractive, feminine, and is willing to give endless love for the rest of our lives. I need a lady who has discovered there is more joy and happiness in giving than in taking.

I am told frequently that I look much younger than my age. Having most all my original hair helps and only having some of it gray helps. I am confident, nice looking, very outgoing and friendly, and can talk to anyone. I have two boys, ages 23 and 25 who live with me. I have a very responsible job as the Assistant Public Works Director for a very progressive city. I manage the Engineering department with a staff of 30 and help the Director with our operations staff of over 40 people. I love my job. God really blessed me with this position.

I am a bit conservative and like to be casual, but enjoy getting all spiffed up for a lady also. I am an outdoor guy who loves to be out in nature when ever I can. I cook, clean, iron, do laundry, can fix most anything and I do honey-do-lists. But I am missing a beautiful, gentle spirited sweetheart in my life.

With all that said, here are the really important things about me: steadfast character, humble, solid love for God, very affectionate, gentle and kind, respectful, prefer a committed forever relationship, have an abundance of love to share (I am a sweetheart and a hopeless romantic), love kids, great dad, a hard worker, a giver to the core.

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

I really like the outdoors and I live in a gorgeous part of the country. Depending on the weather, something more relaxed for a first date like a hike on one of my favorite trails, sitting by Trillium Lake at the base of Mt Hood feeding the ducks, riding bikes together along the river or many other things to numerous to mention here. I would enjoy showing her places that are special to me, especially ones that renew my soul and put me in a peaceful relaxed space. If it was winter, I would go for more inside things that we both might like to do that would allow us to be relaxed as we get acquainted. If things went well, maybe dinner afterwords. I would want to know if she likes surprises or wants to chose from the options. I am open to doing just about anything with a sweetheart lady, even shopping on a first date or playing on the playground equipment in one of the parks I have build. Formal would be OK, but I am a very easy going guy and would like to spend the first date getting acquainted in a relaxed environment, helping her feel at ease with me.

My past relationships have taught me...

I have a huge heart and am a very affectionate and giving man. I have given my heart away too easily in the past. I have put my trust in God to help me in my choices, but have missed too many red flags in my optimistic nature. While I feel each relationship could have had different outcomes, it takes two people to make it work. I realize that God gave everyone the power of choice.

I have learned that I enjoy giving and loving all I can, but I need to be respected, loved and cherished in the same way I do to my mate. I also need a wife who has an unfailing love, commitment and devotion to me and to God.

To me, being an Adventist means...

I am a third generation Adventist and have been committed to church all my life. I rarely miss church and only when I am traveling because it is so important to me. The Holy Spirit speaks to me through the music, the sermon and in my SS school class. I really love the prayer and praise portion of my SS class. I have a wonderful, committed walk with God and praise Him for His many blessings. I truly know that He will never leave me or forsake me (Heb. 13:5&6). I picture myself holding His hand as He leads me through life, as my dad did for me, when I was young and I did for my sons. My relationship with God has carried me through many trials and I am so grateful to Him for the faith He has given me to keep a firm hold on His hand through the journey. The trials have strengthen my walk with God and given me a depth of love and compassion to share that I wouldn't have had otherwise. I love the Adventist faith and Sabbath. My walk with God is based around it.

In five years, I see myself

At that time, hopefully my kids will be out on their own and I will still be working at my job a few more years. If it is God's will, I see myself married, passionately in love and extremely happy with the woman I will cherish and love for the rest of my life or till Jesus comes. I see me putting all the things I have learned from my previous relationships, trials and lessons into practice to give the very best of me and the best years of my life to a very special lady. I want to create a peaceful, happy home where a vibrant, loving and respectful marriage commitment between my wife and I is present every day.

My favorite Bible passage is...

My all time favorite is Hebrews 13:5 & 6. God doesn't promise to take all our trials away, but He did promise to "never leave us or forsake us," no matter what we do or whatever we are going through. This has been so affirming to me, that I never have to feel alone, no matter how hard life seems, He is always there to guide me through and lift my faith, when I need Him. I also like Is. 40-27-31. It is comforting to me to know that, like the young eagle pushed from the nest to learn to fly, the mother and father eagles are ready to lift up the young floundering eaglet on their wings just as God is always there watching over us until we can grow wings of our own to soar like the adult eagle. Of course the great love chapter, I Corinthians 13 is a great model for relationships and service to other. And another favorite is Philippians 4:6-7 with the peace that comes when we give thanks to God through the trials. Jeremiah 29:11 is also very special. He not only has my back, He also has my future and it is filled with joy and hope.

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

I haven't figured how to create a long distance relationship that would allow quality time to date and a relocation for one person. Just another task to leave in God's hands. I trust that the One who carries me in the palm of His hand and can do immeasurably more than I could ever ask or imagine is more than able to work out the details on meeting the one He has for me to share the next phase of my life with.
