The Lord has literally saved my life several times, and I feel very fortunate and blessed to be where I am today. But for Him things would be much different.
Presently I teach a couple of business computing (MIS) courses at East Carolina University, and work on computer problems for home users and small businesses on the side. I'm pretty level-headed, take a practical approach to life, love animals and the outdoors. Am very health-and-fitness-conscious, am a vegan, believe in natural remedies and in staying away from regular allopathic medical methods (pharmaceutical drugs etc.) as much as possible. As a result I hardly ever get sick, and most people think at first that I'm right much younger than I am, even with the gray, which is nice. Bike riding is one thing I really like to do; I normally try to get in 60-70 miles a week, most every day except on Sabbath. A great way to stay in shape and see the sights. So I hope you like to ride a bike! Solo riding is enjoyable, but having someone to go with is too.
I became an SDA in the late 1970s, then left the church and played the prodigal for a long time. Finally grew up in 2000-2001, and now might finally be ready to make some moves toward settling down with the right SDA lady....assuming that the Lord gives unmistakable evidence of His stamp of approval on such a thing, y'know. He's in charge. If a special lady and I ever do get together, I certainly want it to be first and foremost for the purpose of helping each other, and other people, to make it into God's kingdom.

A light dinner (or lunch) and a walk by some water, filled with meaningful conversation.
To wait! Don't rush. Don't get too intimate too quickly. Look beneath the surface and find out who this person is, make sure there's a basic compatibility there before getting too involved. It's easier to get into a relationship than it is to get out, obviously, so make sure you can become (and remain) good friends before becoming anything beyond that.
Being a part of God's last-days remnant on earth. Being different, being called to deliver a distinctive message and not being afraid of doing that, though it may mean standing alone or meeting opposition at times. The truth isn't always popular. Romans 12:18 applies, but so does Acts 4:20.
Buying a house in the country, and moving towards becoming more self-sufficient. Learning to grow a good portion of my own food. Becoming more and more like Jesus in character. Becoming a better teacher and showing more of His ways in the classroom, even while operating under the constraints of employment at a secular public university. He put me there for a reason, that much is clear. Perhaps finding a permanent mate.
II Chronicles 20:20 -- "Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper." With the attacks we see being made on the SoP these days ("The very last deception of Satan will be to make of none effect the testimony of the Spirit of God"), this verse says a lot.
Two things -- one that ladies might want to know, since I've seen that this can put some people off, is that I'm definitely a gun aficionado. Own a number of handguns, rifles, and shotguns. I have a concealed handgun permit, and tend to exercise that right where legally allowed when out and about. I don't hunt...vegans don't eat animals, so there's no need to be killing them, for food or for sport. But I do see the need to have firearms around for personal protection and the protection of family, friends, neighbors. It's a Constitutional right here in the U.S., for good reason. Target shooting's good recreation too; I like to take students out to the range every now and then, and they enjoy that. But the present point is that if you're uncomfortable around firearms, we probably wouldn't make a good match, unless you're willing to learn about guns with the goal of 'making friends' with them.
Finally, I've thought more than once that the Lord might just intend for me to stay single for the rest of my time here on earth -- Jesus did, Paul did. There's nothing wrong with remaining unmarried (1 Cor. 7:8). But then the thought has also suggested itself that maybe He doesn't want that. So why not put out some feelers and see what He might set in motion. Companionship with the right person can be a great thing.
