Tall, athletic, cheerful, well read, well traveled, successful, tolerant, conservative, committed Christian, and traditionalist. (And exceptionally modest, of course.) I am here for marriage and children. I am looking for a true partner for my life.
(I realize conservative Christian and cheerful/tolerant don't fit the stereotype; judge for yourself from my question answers. It may be that my tolerance is impacted by the fact that I came to Christianity relatively late in life, so I tend not to be judgmental.)
After reading lots of profiles, I find that the most interesting ones are those with lots of personal information and a strong sense of humor. At the moment, this one has lots of information and not enough humor, but I consider it a work in progress anyway -- it is still changing regularly.
I am on this site solely to find a marriage partner. However, I find various sociological aspects of the site fascinating, so I do tend to ask people lots of questions, including people who are not a likely fit. If you are here because I sent such a question, but I don't fit one of your specifically mentioned criteria, you don't have to point out we are not a match -- I always read the profile and all of the questions before I send a message. (Actually it is only all of the questions if you have answered less than 1000, otherwise I sample. :-) The most questions I have seen someone answer was about 2500, but I am told that there are people who have answered over 10,000.)
I have been divorced for several years from my first wife, after 20+ years of marriage. (Since this is a hot button for some, let me add that it was not because of infidelity on either side.) I remain on good terms with both my wife and my (now adult) children.
I recently realized that one of the things I really enjoyed about married life was raising children. Women close to my age would only be potential partners for adopted children; while I have no objection to adopting children, I do (possibly immodestly) feel that my natural children are more likely to be special. So I am looking for someone who may or may not already have children, but is interested in having more. For marriage, naturally.
I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs (hard or soft). I am religious, and I think it is important for children to be raised in a religious environment, even when/if they later decide they are not interested.
My job allows me considerable flexibility in where I live, so location is not especially critical. I work for a large technology company.
My children are adults now. I have one of each (boy/girl, easy/difficult, scientific/artistic, and various other categories), so I have useful experience in a wide variety of situations.
I would be happy to adopt any children you have.
While children are obviously important to me, the reality in any family is that the relationship between the parents is the most critical. I am looking for a true life partner, not a baby momma (by analogy to "baby daddy"). I consider romance important, and believe that "date nights" for the parents are important. Joining your life with another takes attention and time -- but anything less than a true joining impairs both the marriage and the family.
