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

Y' know, I'm all about keeping that first date simple without being insulting. (ie - no Taco Bell, please!) I, personally, think that good relationships are built on good friendships, and that takes time, a willingness to invest, to share, and to be vulnerable.

When it comes to dates, I prefer to DO something ~ the zoo, a picnic, hike, kayaking, outdoor concerts. I dislike movies. It's not some conservative Adventist leaning, either. It's more that much of what Hollywood produces conflicts with my Christian values, so why waste my time? Especially when there are so many things to do that are actually interesting?

But back to that third date - because your trip to my hometown and my trip to your hometown went very well - there's this whitewater rafting/zipline package near Denver I've been looking at. It fell through last year, so I'm hoping to go this year.

My past relationships have taught me...

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.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. There is a 100% chance that you will marry someone that you date - so WHO you date and HOW you date matters.People come as-is. Take them, leave them, but you won't change them.I've learned that big age differences do not work for me. My age preferences are there to free you up older gents to find someone who is a better match for you.Also, it'd be nice to meet someone who is not only legally available, but also emotionally available.

To me, being an Adventist means...

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.

Oh, and haystacks! Who doesn't love haystacks?

In five years, I see myself

As far as what I hope to accomplish? Hmmm....relocate, buy a house, fill that house with life, love, and laughter. Be ever closer to Jesus. Find the man I was made to be with and spend the rest of my life showing him how fortunate I am to have been blessed to be with him.

My favorite Bible passage is...

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.

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

I'm sure there is, but why not save something for when we meet?
