ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

(In spite of the recent UI design improvements, match.com seems to be going downhill, and my subscription has ended, so I won't be renewing. You can find me on another very popular online dating site as loveisachoice.)

I'm a down-to-earth guy seeking genuine friendships with a few kind people. I admire and am attracted to people who are humble, grateful, and unflinchingly kind and compassionate towards others.

While I ultimately seek a partner for life, it just feels awkward and totally backwards for me to try to start to pursue a woman romantically who I don't already regard as a dear friend. So let me share some examples of things I would fancy doing with my friends:
• Playing games: board, card, video, strategy, word, puzzle, etc. ...But not of the drinking or emotional variety.
• Serving/helping others in any capacity.
• Gathering around a piano and singing together. (Hopefully someone besides me can play.)
• Going for a jog or a brisk walk or just a leisurely stroll.
• Going outdoors to hike or explore or otherwise enjoy nature.
• Dancing together. (I'll admit I'm pathetic, but I'm not afraid to try.)
• Studying, researching, and learning together. I love to learn and share what I'm learning and to hear what others are learning about!
• Getting together to cook and/or to share something we've cooked on our own. While I personally prefer baking, there's nothing like sharing the [literally edible] fruits of our labors with others. :)
• Going out together: shopping, to church, for fun activities, for cultural events, etc.
• Taking turns reading out loud to one another and discussing what we're reading & thinking about.
• Watching a movie together
• Taking pictures or videos with each other -- silly or serious.
• Working together -- on anything, small or large: a personal project, an assignment, cleaning, home improvement, lawn/garden maintenance, etc. (Some may scoff, but I think that a defining characteristic of any relationship is how amiably the participants work with one another.)
• Developing ideas for a new project/business/venture that could address a real need that people have.
• Just hanging out and taking about the things we're passionate about!
I enjoy these activities. If several of these resonate with you, perhaps we could be good friends. :)

In a long-term relationship, it's really important to me that my partner be someone who is passionate and values and practices self-development. Radical changes are not what I'm after -- just a steady & consistent effort to be a little better each day. Spiritual, intellectual, and physical compatibility with a partner (in that order) are very important to me:
• It's essential that she be a Christian woman who values her relationship with God and Jesus Christ and strives to be true to what she believes. I'm active in my faith (LDS/Mormon), involved with my church, and grateful for my Savior.
• It's very important that she is intellectually curious and thirsty -- eager to learn and to share. I'm revitalized by intelligent conversation and attracted to women who appreciate the same.
• I feel it's unwise to have a "physical" (i.e. sexual) relationship with her before marriage, but I feel it's wise (for practical reasons) to seek a woman whose physical proportions and physical activity level are similar to my own.

In case it's not already obvious, I'm definitely more introverted than extroverted, so I'd much prefer a few close friendships to many superficial ones. I've been told I'm quiet and intense; I think there's truth to both. While I may not fancy excessive small talk, I enjoy conversation about topics that resonate with me. I am happiest when I'm doing things with others, whether work or play. Good company makes any activity enjoyable!
