SEARCHING "DEEPER WATERS!" Christian/Spiritual, Sensual... I am a "sapiophile" -- and I love common sense.
I am Intelligent/educated, financially disciplined/self-supportive and I have an entrepreneurial spirit. Love to travel, learning more about history, and self improvement: physically, emotionally and spiritually. I'm kind of philosophical, and very passionate -- yes, I love Jesus! Gardening is a passion, so we could do that, and enjoy the fruits of our labor -- I’m kind of trending vegan (but certainly do like a good steak or seafood now and then! Flexible is good)! I like camping, boating, and nature… With a focus on my health more these days, lets go hiking and/or bicycling -- certainly good options to do together – I love Starved Rock State Park, and Southern IL with Shawnee National Forest, here in Illinois. Maybe you have some great trip ideas too! Hmm… maybe just taking turns cooking and helping each other clean up around the house – I even enjoy doing financial planning for that fiscal responsibility (I hope a good credit score is important to you too! Being a good steward is challenging fun)! I’m not into rigid roles, and I love teamwork in many different areas. Maybe we'll go serve the less fortunate, or have a cookout.
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." I'm seeking Interdependence. Balance, and a Passion for life. I love weekend trips, just traveling back roads and small, quaint towns -- and dreaming our future. Working with my hands is fun, so we could plan how to finish the basement, and then accomplish it – and have that satisfaction of our achievement, together! ?
My potential love will be of the same World View:.. He will be spiritually like-minded... based on God: the solid rock of Jesus Christ. The Bible is our guide, and 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 anything other than a Bible-believing Christian, then a LTR likely won't work for you and me.
"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)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's just THROW OUT THE WORD "DATE." Something light to start out with. Once we've decided to continue to meet...I believe a comedy club would be fun... and then go somewhere quiet and get to know each other better...and laugh about the evening...
