I am looking for a good, strong Christian man - one who loves the Lord and attends church on a regular basis - one who is not looking for an immediate relationship - one who is willing to build a friendship and see where the Lord takes it. Smoking is a huge turn off for me so I definitely am looking for a non-smoker. I am a born again Christian and attend a Bible based church. I absolutely love to watch NASCAR racing along with other sports. I travel as much as I can and take many pictures which leads to my hobby of scrapbooking. I love children, but don't have any of my own. I do have a great dog - a big, bold Rottweiler that I love with all my heart - he is my baby! I love spending time with family and friends, but also like time to myself so I can read/complete word puzzles. I have an undergraduate and graduate degree and plan to begin a doctoral degree sometime within the next year. I am old school when it comes to relationships and don't just give out my number/meet after a few emails - I prefer to email for a while to get to know a person before even talking on the phone - I am not interested in just "hooking up." I am very close with my family and don't have any interest in relocation at this time in my life.
