I think it would be fun to go explore the lava caves around Mt. St. Helens, or perhaps try the alpine slides at Mt Hood. After that, we could enjoy a picnic supper and some substantive conversation. Or we could just go to dinner. Skip the movie idea. Movies are okay once in a while, but a steady diet pretty much numbs the mind.
Hmmm...lessons learned from past relationships, observations, reading.
The relationships that have the best chance for success are between two mature people who have healed from past relationships, are unselfish and care about the other person as much - if not more - than they care about themselves, and are on a healthy trajectory of personal and spiritual growth.
Don't base your life and your own happiness upon finding someone else.
Love when you're ready, not when you're lonely.
If you aren't happy being single you will never be happy in a relationship.
Get your own life first, then share it.
The foundation of any great relationship is trust and honesty. To me, this isn't just about not telling outright lies, but also about being brave enough to tell the whole truth.
I learned that I don't need to lower my expectations as much as I need to raise my standards.
There are no bad hiking trails, only bad hiking companions.
Adventism is just the denomination in which I live out my Christianity. I wish that I could write this up in a pretty little package, and say that I’ve never struggled. But I’ve struggled. I wish I could say that I’ve never doubted. But I’ve doubted. I wish I could say that I’ve never tried to impose my agenda on God’s will. But, yes, I’ve done that too. The bottom line is that Jesus paid the price for my sin, and I will forever be indebted to Him for tyle="font-weight:bold;")His unending love, grace, and mercy towards me. I’m a work in progress, a sinner saved by grace and secure in the love of my Father. Faith is a journey, not a destination, and I’d love someone to share in that journey with me.
You may have noticed that one can find a rather broad spectrum of beliefs and practices within Adventism. I know it's easy to hear that someone is an Adventist and think that person thinks, acts, believes, or even votes exactly like you do. Bad idea. Trust me.
Within in the next five years, I'm looking at a job change, a house purchase, much more travel, and possible relocation. This is all going to happen, God willing, with or without you. It would just be a whole lot more fun with you.
The Gospels, of course. But I’m quite enamored with the entire book of Isaiah. Rebellion. Reasoning. Rescue. Reconciliation. Redemption. Restoration. Reunion. Rejoicing. Does it get any better than this? I think not.
A couple random things about me:
You're likely wondering how I got to this age without ever being married. I have had a few opportunities to marry, but they weren't good matches and marrying just to be married is wrong. I think both people deserve a great match, and shouldn't settle for the least unappealing option.
That said, I'm looking for ONE relationship, not just a few weeks of flirty texts and pseudo connection that disappears when the novelty wears off.
No man on this planet has ever referred to me as high-maintenance. Maybe some other unflattering adjectives, but not that one.
I'm not looking for huge age differences, and ask that you respect my age preferences of 41-47.
I'm open to relocation.
And, because no on-line profile is complete without these phrases, here y' go!
~I'm quiet until I get to know someone (Actually, the length and depth of our friendship has no bearing on my volume. I inspired an episode of Seinfeld. Points for knowing which one.)
~I love to laugh and have fun! (as opposed to???)
~ I live life to the fullest! (way better than living it to the emptiest)
~I can dress up and go out, or spend a quiet evening at home in sweats. (Note to self: get some sweats)
And, of course, there's always those long walks on the beaches...
