I am much more fun than this but here goes...
I am looking for a friend or a soul mate. I believe relationships are a consistent choice/commitment and not an emotional experience. Looking forward to build someone up to be the best they can be, and someone willing to do the same for me.
My faith and love for Jesus comes first in all things; yet I am tolerant of different lifestyles, and do not preach or impose my beliefs on others. I love to laugh, have fun, be spontaneous, and enjoy the moment. I like to keep things simple, embrace silence, and go with the flow. I am creative and find comfort in ambiguity rather than a set routine, bc I will get bored. I do not like life becoming "too serious." I love people; I live for all sorts of relationship, but am also an introvert so need my "me time." I love to encourage and empower others to achieve their dreams, heart's desires, or whatever makes them shine. I have been nicknamed Youthful Yoda, am intuitive, and prefer to listen. I value integrity and responsibility in myself and in others, and prefer being around people I know I can trust. I like to be outside and in nature whenever the weather permits. I love to explore and find adventure, especially through travel. I am not a fan of technology, with the exception of the internet & movies. No ipod, ipad, iphone, iwhateverelse, tv, social networking (yes this site was a big step!) video games, etc. I am not a sports fan, sorry! But will respect you if you are :)
Kenya is my heart's home. I have a soft spot for the precious orphans in Kenya, where I hope to build many schools and orphanages for them in years to come. I already have one and another in the making :) I have a "St. Joan of Arc" spirit; I tend to go with the flow unless it disrupts something I care about deeply, like the exploitation, prejudism, and abuse of others, especially those who are helpless and innocent.
Would be great to find a new exciting friend or someone who is willing to commit to loving someone, in the good and bad times. Someone who is willing to help me learn how to love them the best that I can, and who isn't afraid to explain themselves. Someone with healthy boundaries to respect the autonomy, emotions, sensitivity, and authenticity of another person; and can trust that I will do the same for them. I'd like a guy who isn't afraid of conflict, anger, or sadness and can talk about it willingly instead of suffering in silence, rationalizing, or blaming. I am very transparent and comfortable being vulnerable; I desire others to respect my honesty and be transparent around me, regardless how I may respond (bc I know its not their job to make me happy). Someone who can ask questions when they don't understand me. Someone who can believe that I love them unconditionally and so will not judge them or try to "fix" them. I do not handle betrayal, abandonment, rejection, or dishonesty well, yet have a history of being taken advantage of because I believe in forgiveness. I have a lot of love inside me; I am hoping to meet someone who isn't afraid to receive what I have to give, and isn't afraid to let me know when it is becoming too much.
Ultimately, I want a hero. Someone that I can look up to, respect, and brag about; and cause my kids (if they are meant to be) to see him as a hero as well. Someone I can honor everyday, regardless if I agree with them or not. Someone I can give authority to, over my marriage, my home, and my family, and so he can't be afraid to make decisions and be the leader. Someone who will confront me when I am not being submissive, instead of feeling afraid to hurt my feelings. Someone who can model after Jesus, so I can be their church. And who will always love God more than anything or anyone else, and will expect me to do the same.
