Introduction

I am an affectionate introvert who enjoys quiet time out in nature and at home. I am looking for someone who enjoys the same. I would also enjoy meeting someone who shares my passion for humanitarian work; however, merely supporting my interest in it is adequate.

I am listed as a "red" but do not agree. So, don't read what reds are like and think I will be impressed by someone who is logical, competent, driven, etc. While these things do impress me, it's what whites are that gets to my heart. I have always dated gentlemen who I would describe as sweet, caring, and leaders. I do not like to feel like I have to be in charge of a relationship, even though I am capable of it. I would either not be interested or lose interest if I had to be the leader. The men I am attracted to have opinions and are able to stand their ground - though in a polite manner. Such behavior gains my respect and keeps me toned down.

Politics: I am a true conservative - conserve, preserve, and reserve time to enjoy the latter

Essays

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

An outdoor activity such as hiking or skiing or, for someone who has less time to commit, meeting for tea/coffee would be fine.

Listening to birds and observing tree squirrels or pikas, marmots, and weasels would definitely be my idea of fun.

My past relationships have taught me...

I am committed to taking the time to, through discussion and experience, really learn about someone else’s core values. There can be significantly different interpretations of such that make a couple incompatible, despite the mad feelings of being in love and thinking one never wants to part from the other – Love does not “conquer all.”

To me, being an Adventist means...

No denomination is perfect, including the SDA church. I am a Christian first and a Sabbatarian second. I am, for the first time in my life, discovering what it is like to have friends outside of the Adventist and Christian world. I am enjoying the impetus these relationships provide to study more deeply and be able to defend Christianity and Sabbatarianism. Advent: defined as coming. Christ comes to each of us. Heaven comes to each of us beginning here now on earth. While I do believe in the SDA interpretation of some end-time events - it concerns me less than it does other individuals. It does not matter to me whether the earth will be made new or refurbished. My impetus for a relationship with God is not fear of the end-times nor greed for a better life; however, the promise of that change (a new earth, a new beginning, sin wiped away) does give me hope (a hope to share) that suffering will eventually end. I believe in relationship versus religion. I question whether or not I am prepared for and interested in the relationship Jesus has to offer me today and for the future. Reading God's word helps me to know Him and His plan for me better. In God's time, I believe God will reveal all relevant truth to His people, those who have developed a deep relationship with Him. Thus my focus in witnessing to others is not that they must be convicted of the "truth" as I see it (not that I would not or do not share my personal beliefs) but that they will see something different in me and be led to desire and seek a relationship with Christ.

To put it simple: I do not see the Sabbath as an end time issue in the way that some people do; I see a relationship with Jesus Christ as the issue then and now.

In five years, I see myself

Go on more mission trips. Perhaps work in Afghanistan again. Perhaps get my PhD in nursing or change careers (hiking and skiing are seeming like so much more fun than studying, though). Get into the IT world. Find a low paying position somewhere overseas doing humanitarian work.

Though I enjoy arts theaters and fine restaurants (available only in a city of course), I would prefer to live in the country.

Get married, have or adopt children, and live happily ever after.

My future is flexible. If I had a partner in life, my options for the next five years would depend on our interests together and God's leading. I may or may not change my career in the next five years, but I would like to be with someone who is comfortable with the possibility of that. Of course, I would also want to give him the same support - to not feel locked into a career just because one is married and/or has children.

My favorite Bible passage is...

I don't really have a favorite but do enjoy Psalm 91 because it is comforting and the Lord has brought it to my mind many times when I needed: "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. I will say of the Lord He is my refuge and my fortress...." Also, Genesis 2:3 is very significant to me as a Sabbatarian: "And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it..." God most often brings to my mind "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."

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

If you might be interested, feel free to come visit and go skiing or hiking with me. I have had little interest in pursuing on-line relationships in the past. In fact, I have had a profile on this site for several years and been on here very little (if at all, some years). I am going to put more effort into responding to potential interests despite the reality that it is challenging for me to see someone as real who isn't here in person - "out of sight, out of mind" is the way my brain works
