Introduction

I am a good-natured man who is still learning and growing from past mistakes and who aspires to go in the right direction in all respects. I'm looking for an absolute best friend with whom to travel that journey, with plenty of laughs along the way. I think a friendship where two can freely talk about everything, especially fears, emotions, prayers, hopes and dreams is the foundation of a glorious union between man and woman. If it is meant to be, the rest will fall into place, without deadlines. I like kind, gentle, caring and funny.

Essays

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

Two people getting together to share something, words, food, a motorcycle ride, thoughts, a bike ride, walk the dog, a story, a poem, frustrations, a joyful moment, a ride around a race track in a race car, play music together...anything active or that makes you laugh…and let go of the analysis and "what ifs."

My past relationships have taught me...

When another's words or actions are ambiguous, we assume their intentions are what we fear the most, which is often totally wrong. If if doesn't work out, take it in stride, see the humor in it; humans are quirky by nature. There is a silver lining to most disappointments.

To me, being an Adventist means...

Having compassion, being a humanitarian, treating all with dignity, and in the end your presence has helped or made others better or happier.

In five years, I see myself

In some small way(s), make loved ones happy / the world a better place, stay healthy, continue to find the rhythm and beauty in each day, spend more time in nature. In five years I will also be an old man with a son in college.

My favorite Bible passage is...

There are so many but here is one: "[b]etter is a dry morsel, and the quietness therewith, than a house full of sacrifices, with strife."
Here is another favorite: "[b]lessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."

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

Please don't take anything said here too seriously; we are all but humans fumbling about looking for happiness, love and security with each having our own unique interpretations of what those mean. It is a miracle that two can find and have true and enduring love for each other anyway.
