This thing is kinda long because I've added to it over time. Normally I am slow to open up but that is the whole point of a dating website right? I know I'm a genuine good caring guy who wants someone honest and unique, someone to care about me and to be cared about by me because we are happy to have found someone special. If you aren't with someone who makes you smile when you think of them then it's probably not the person you deserve to have or deserves you.
Random Fact: Dogs, Cats, and Kids get me every time. I'm a complete sucker for them. *Smile*
I like to joke around and have the most fun with people who don't need to always be serious. I am sarcastic, laugh at the wrong things, interested in everything, obsessed with nothing.
A person is a monument to creation and a whole world of their own. I like persons more than people which just means that I have fun in groups but am really most engaged with a single person on a one to one level. There has been a lot of change since I first made a half way serious profile here. I am a man with 30 years of life experience starting over without preconceptions. Before I was much more open to just anyone but I've learned that people should show an interest in wanting to get to know you and be known to you before you open your heart. Still, this is a place where we've come to find someone who they can be themselves with so I'm willing to take a risk and let you get to know me honestly. I was a big romantic and an idealist when I was young man. So I will leave this small glimpse of what I wrote for my profile when I was as a younger guy. Hopefully you'll understand that I'm being open because I am looking for a special someone and, I hope, so are you.
" I have loved and guard myself from falling. I know enough to know I'm helpless when loved."
Now I am strong enough to still have a big heart and am more careful with who I share it with. I am no longer helpless when I'm loved. I can care back or know when it's not something healthy for us. It is easy to be jaded and cold, which I was for a time, but I learned that comes from fear not strength. It takes far more to be able to care and allow someone to care about you.
Recently someone has shown me that someone may believe differently. As long as they are open to see what it's about and ok with what I personally believe then I can give it a chance. It isn't about me judging, I promise you that and I wish I could show it. It doesn't matter to me what other people believe or think and I do hate HATE people who use Jesus/The Bible/God to judge/condemn/discriminate/ie to use it hatefully instead of the Whole Reason for my faith which is to love others. Hopefully anyone reading this will understand.
Sharing this is not easy because I know from experience some will take it the wrong way and it will stop me from meeting some great women but it is important enough to be upfront; to show I'm serious about being honest. It's a chance at something real.
I'm a person whose most important relationship is loving Jesus Christ and I am looking for a woman who is just as in love with him as I am. It's not cool or really in fashion to be His. The matter is that I know I'm not perfect and I know, intuitively, that a relationship that will last as long as I hope to have has to be based on Jesus being more important to you and I am; more important to me than you and to you more than me. If you are scared away then it's better now than later. Still, if I'm amazingly blessed enough to find someone who feels the same then I can promise you this. We have a chance at something, at a love, healthy and special enough to make everything rough it took to get here into a blessing for having shown us how to be in love for the last time. The time we get it right.
