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!!
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 a relationship -- READ ON!
I don't come into POF often, but I'm checking in on SEPTEMBER 3rd, 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."
:) I AM SO GRATEFUL for mature and respectful individuals who contact me, especially those who are seeking personal growth.
I'm easy-going and very flexible as a friend. I have many different friends with many different beliefs.
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, 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...
We will Love the Bible and study together or with others. EVERYTHING ELSE is just "window dressing."
(material possessions, other interests/hobbies, appearance [beauty fades])
-- HUMILITY and ACCEPTANCE are needed in a REAL RELATIONSHIP.
When it comes to a long-term relationship, we need to be of the same World View.
My World View is based on God: the solid rock of Jesus Christ. I am Biblically-based. The Bible is my guide.
*** I'm not out to change a man's foundational view of things. That would be disrespectful and not realistic... :)
If we don't have the same foundational "World View" then we don't have much to build a relationship on... If that makes sense.
We will both enjoy personal growth. We will be GOAL-oriented and seeking HIS WILL within the relationship and life in general.
We will BOTH be putting effort into our relationship AND life: we will be motivated to succeed... and not be complacent.
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."
... Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
P.S.: If you have ANGER, TRUST and/or CONTROL issues that you haven't dealt with (AND refuse to deal with), pass me by.
*** There's more to life than dealing with that insanity. Impulsivity isn't so good either... but at least it's not as cruel.
Please talk to me about this... if you are not sure if you have dealt with them well, or not.
