At the moment I am enjoying life with great friends and lots of amazing things to do. But at the same time I 'm looking for someone to share life with in a more permanent way. At some point in the future (though doesn't have to be right now) I want to be married, start a family - same as probably most other people on here. So here's a bit about what I'm looking for.
Chemistry - mutual attraction - is absolutely vital up front. We all know this, even if it does seem a bit shallow. But before long it becomes obvious that there are deeper points of compatibility required to make a long-term relationship work: personalities that "click," similar values and priorities in life, compatible astrological signs (no... wait... scratch that last one and replace it with "shared interests").
Regarding shared interests, here are a few things I love doing: climbing rocks. Going to concerts. Backpacking in the mountains. Intense conversations on topics of life, philosophy, science, literature, or anything else random. Kayaking. Watching one hilarious YouTube video after another. Learning something new. I think the process of discovering shared interests and/or developing new ones is one of the most exciting aspects of a relationship.
Finally, I believe that we are all created in God's image, and that we were made to love and to be loved. Our worldview - what we believe about God, the universe, and our place in it - informs our deepest convictions about how life is to be lived. So if I'm going to spend my life with someone, I need them to also love God and be committed to following him.
