My self-summary

First things first; DON'T obey your thirst! I am waiting for a virtuous woman who is still intent on waiting until marriage.

I have saved myself for you, my Love.

A man is to honor, cherish, protect and provide for a woman. A woman need never feel obligated to please a man.

While my goal on this site is to find a long-term friend and ultimately marriage, I am just looking for an attractive friend first. I believe there are stages that a relationship should go through which are too easily skipped in these online chat sessions. We both need to be discerning and continually in prayer so that we progress in a healthy and godly manner.

I am seeking a woman, 21-35 (open to discussion), that has good values and will challenge me. By challenge I mean that she is self-confident enough in herself to criticize me constructively without fearing that she would lose me, and that she would likewise be open to that herself. Also, her strengths would challenge my weaknesses, mine would challenge hers, and yet when we're together those differences would complement each other. KnowutImean? Oh, and she would be honest and loyal, self-confident and energetic... that's all. Did I mention self-confident? That also means Christ-confident!

I've never had a serious relationship. I can truly say that I have never loved another, in the romantic sense, but I have cared deeply for girls as friends. That said, I have learned a few things from doing my due diligence researching and talking to friends who have gone through issues.. most are married now. Basically, I know that communication is paramount and realize relationships take a lot of work. I would enjoy giving and learning how to please her.. receiving would be icing on the cake. We would also draw closer through overcoming differences and arguments, and by drawing closer to God together.

Hmm, how to let my personality show.. nevermind, lets get on with the serious stuff! I always thought I'd get married, and that it was even important for having a fulfilling life - by sharing it intimately with someone else. I love the insights and unique dimensions that a woman brings to a relationship. It hasn't just "happened", so I'm making it a priority now.

I tend to be old-fashioned, but I'm open-minded enough to adjust to however my woman wants to be treated. Besides that, I just want to say that I'm a thoughtful, habitually honest, fun-seeking guy who prefers 1-on-1 conversations, and I want more activity in my life so I'm open to trying a lot of new things. I just need a good reason... and you could be it!

I am honest, thoughtful, fun, and a bit sexy.
What I’m doing with my life
Lately I've been taking time for a reality-check on my life and I've decided to make marriage a high priority in my life - not just a "nice to have" but making the search a real active part of my life.

I've also put together a retirement plan for us. Its a realistic plan for our future that will provide a stable and content way of life, no matter what the economy. This includes retirement with long-term investments that would provide us with a steady income and the possibility of travelling often so we could see the world together!

I'm sorry if you think that is money-centered and unspiritual. What I'm talking about is being a good steward, making the most of what we have, and being able to give abundantly.
I’m really good at
Listening.. I am perceptive, understanding personalities and where people are coming from. I'm a smooth operator... I pick up quickly when learning new things, physically or mentally. Basically, I can do most things well if I put my mind to it. Apparently I'm real good at seeming like a serious, boring guy in writing when half the time I'm the one trying to lighten things up.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I am careful with my words/thoughtful/quiet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to read scifi/fantasy and my favorites are still Tolkien and Chronicles of Thomas Covenant series by Stephen R. Donaldson. I have also liked reading various books about human personality types and lately, financial planning.

Music: many kinds, mostly progressive/hard, classic rock.
Movies: scifi/fantasy/drama/suspense.

Mostly stick to meat and pasta with occasional salad/raw veggie.
Six things I could never do without
I hate this question. Not because I can't live without anything, but rather because I believe one can learn to live without just about anything but food, water and air. Its just a mind thing.

Okay, keeping it light.. I would say Coke (soda), burgers/steak, computers/internet, fresh air/outdoors, and.. ah yes, the company of a lovely woman.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to find that special someone, how I can prepare myself to be the best lover, husband and father... the next place I'll be flying to for my job and how to manage my money.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wishing I had someone special to spend my weekend with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Think I said that up at the top.
You should message me if
We have similar values and you are interested in making a good friend that you hope will some day lead to a serious relationship and marriage.
The two of us
