I would prefer to be inconspicuous, but in reality, I'm hard to miss. I am conscientious, patient, and intentional. I am not pretentious. I am not perfect. I am a lifelong learner, so I am constantly growing.
I strive to "keep it simple", and truly enjoy the "simple" things. I believe in chivalry and romance, and like to practice both. The people closest to me say I am silly, considerate, kind, intelligent, and intuitive. Today, I would describe myself as an "old skool mixed tape in a digital era". Unfortunately, if you're not familiar with "old skool and mixed tapes", I may not be right for you. (Tapes = cassette tapes)
I am interested in a woman with diverse thoughts, yet a strong belief. She does not need to be perfect, but it would be nice if she wants to strive for perfection. I think it would be nice to be with someone who is willing to enjoy the journey. I love a gorgeous personality and loving spirit. Must be able to express all emotions and feelings (both good and bad). Must be willing to try and love unconditionally. Must believe in romance. Must love the Lord! Must not be selfish or shallow. Must be an independent thinker. Must not be "catty". Must be real. Must have "flaws" (I do).

I don't believe in a "typical" first date. There is more than one way to have a good time. I believe my "date" should be comfortable and relaxed. No pressure.
Past relationships have taught me the real meaning of unwavering, unconditional, everlasting love. I know that real love is sacrificial. Most importantly, I've learned that real love is not found in things, it's found and shared in all of life's everyday experiences (laughing, words of affirmation, quality time together, expressions of love, etc.)
I don't know what my future holds, but I know that God holds my future. I hope to have furthered my education and discovered my ministry.
I was raised Adventist. I attended and participated in AYS, Pathfinders, etc. I am a Sabbath observer. One side of my family (mother's side) are Adventist, and my best friend is Adventist. I attend Adventist churches. I am not a "law" (Adventist doctrine) abiding follower. I have not totally renounced Adventism, but I am not an ardent, ritualistic practitioner. I have learned not to subscribe to any particular denominational doctrine. I choose to be lead by the Holy Spirit and Scripture. My faith starts with 2 Timothy 3:16-17. I most closely align my believes and practices with those of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and Messianic Judaism.
