SEARCHING "DEEPER WATERS!" Christian/Spiritual, Sensual... wanting (not needing) a relationship to live life to the fullest!
No games/drama. Both of us... ARE FAR FROM PERFECT! :) LOL...
I almost have this "quit-smoking" thing, down pat.
Losing weight too, so I'm in the process of getting better -- WooHooo!!
having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed: Yes, that's me, even concerning my personal relationships as well.
I've been divorced for 10 years, this coming December. I've cast away the majority of the old baggage, and ready to take my healing and new perspective into a NEW Relationship. Being realistic is a critical factor in this new opportunity... Experience has taught me that there are some things which are really important to the foundation of a relationship -- READ ON!
I don't come into POF often, but I'm checking in on SEPTEMBER 17th, 2014.
-- I want to LIVE long and LOVE intensely --
I've been working on me -- We've made great strides, and many great strides yet to achieve!
( Yup, I am imperfect, and working on me -- I hope you are doing the same in your world ) :))
Yes, it's worth "going the distance, for the RIGHT ONE."
THAT BEING SAID, Are YOU and I "meant" for one another? -- to discover the deep seas together! ;)
Let's have fun trying to figure that out!
I am Intelligent/educated, financially disciplined/self-supportive, Kind of philosophical, passionate, and spiritual --
AND an evangelical, JOYOUS Christian (saved sinner), LOOKING FOR SAME.
Teamwork: Mutual respect... earned and deserved! No game-playing or manipulation... openness.
Honest, forthright and transparent. Both able to talk about weaknesses and be able to work on them in good faith.
Yes, conflict does happen -- how do you deal with it? Good conflict resolution skills?
...each of us has strengths and we should "synergize."
Interdependence. Balance. Passion for life.
My potential love will be of the same World View:.. He will be spiritually like-minded...
Mine is based on God: the solid rock of Jesus Christ. The Bible is my guide.
(material possessions, other interests/hobbies, appearance [beauty fades])
We will Love the Bible and study it either together or with others. EVERYTHING ELSE is just "window dressing."
*** I'm not out to change a man's foundational view of things. That would be disrespectful and not realistic... :)
Please don't ask me to change my basic nature either. If you are other than a Bible-believing Christian, then a LTR likely won't work for you and me.
Neither of us want to be hurt anymore... that being said, we can learn to trust again, FULLY.
We will both be discerning, but not judgmental.
LOVING/giving, but not a doormat.
We will have mutual respect - "submit to one another..." (Eph 5:21) -- relationships are not one-sided.
We will LAUGH together, and maybe at each other... but never with a mean spirit.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
