-----I am incomplete without a helpmate. Until then, God is my spouse. I am complete in Him.
-----I was divorced in July 2003. I hate divorce but have been a victim of it twice. I always believe that the relationship will last forever. I have never divorced my wife but God is first and she is Second. That will never change so if you want to rule Him, stop reading my profile now.
-----Am I always right? Hardly, but don't get upset if you are wrong. I will try to incorporate your input 100 percent unless I am convinced there is a better way and it is essential. Ideally, you would not mind the compromise. If you are one with God's will. I can be one with you.
-----I have a son born on Sept 11, 1996. He is third in importance. I believe in principled child upbringing not child centered [he does not get whatever he wants.] When and if we have children, I will be as much their caretaker as you are. If we can homeschool, I am in favor of it but this will naturally cut into our income as I will not relegate this responsibility to you. It may be 50-50.
-----I have four college degrees. We can build together. I am trying to build a business but it is not progressing as fast as I would like. Income potential is in the future, not now. This could change at any time but won't increase until HE can trust me. I am not the boss because Jesus is the managing partner, but I need input from her [you.] My business is also my ministry. There is no formula for balancing all this. Sometimes the income is up and sometimes it is down.
-----I will earn your respect. I love to turn my attention to fulfilling my wife's life. I give up myself for her. I love, honor and cherish her. I forgive her and stay optimistic. I don't see wrinkles, I see smiles. I am faithful and a romantic lover. Not a dancer by upbringing but not against learning.
-----I've been told that my best physical qualities are the sparkle in my baby blue eyes, my legs [I've run most of my life], and my soft dreamy voice. I kind of like my silky soft blond/brown hair. I am seeing touches of grey on the edges. I am on the Atkins diet and don't mind it. I love to work out if you are there. Not so much
if you are not.
------All my friends like my unique insight into my soul and theirs. I can be transparent when I am in touch with myself. I listen very well. I want to understand, and don't like the silent treatment. I believe you when you tell me what you meant even though I thought you meant something else. I expect the same from you. This makes communication very important. These are my ideals, not my persona. I am far from arriving and I don't really expect either of us to be there without God doing all of it in any particular moment.
------I want you for life. I pray for a long life. After that, He will be with us forever.
------You are of equal value, equal rights, and equal rank. But if I were called to be a missionary in an impoverished country with little support and great sacrifice, Would you go with me?
------If you have a firm belief that there is no God, then don't bother. How can light have communion with darkness? If you are unsure about God, I will be glad to entertain your doubts. If you cannot respect others, then when I respect you, you will not respect yourself, either. I am waiting for a woman who knows Jesus. She knows that Jesus loves her as a single female. She wants to get married because
she wants to make someone a good wife - FOREVER [a covenant].
------You may be a lady who desires to join me at the office and make sure all my talents are utilized to excellence. I like her to be aggressive as it meets our
goals. Competitive? If that is her ok, but not contentious. Loyalty to the marriage must overcome our competitiveness or it may turn inward and divide us. She is to be the helper, I will be the worker. She may want to be licensed to be a worker, but it is optional, not a requirement for her. Quiet? Not necessarily, but no air heads, please. [at least think and pray about it before you blurt out someting hurtful.] Can she be herself? Yes, be as creative as you wish. I don’t expect you to be my clone, just my helper.
-----Can you hear from the Lord God Almighty? Great! I will listen, but don't expect me to bow down if I don't think it is HIM. Will I ever listen? Yes, always and sometimes, if I'm smart, I will obey your intuition even if I have my doubts.
------If you want or have your own career, that is fine, I will do whatever I can to promote your progress. I will expect the same from you. I cannot do my business by
myself so I will have to hire someone to help. If you are jealous then let's not get started. There has to be a trade off somewhere.
------Can we have fun? Absolutely!! This is the stuff that miracles and spectacular serendipity is made out of. Hold onto your heart, this is not a walk in the park.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates are for getting to know one another. Anything is possible so long as the atmosphere allows for good conversation with a bit of fun. HOWEVER, it's impossible to have a first date without the first meeting. It only makes sense that the two of us should meet somewhere in public in a stress free and friendly way so that we can decide if dating each other is God' will for our lives. Something very comfortable, simple, but fun. Maybe just meeting at Marble Slab or Baskin Robbins or dinner someplace where a conversation could be heard by each other. Depending on the season, ..maybe a walk or drive or shoot pool, go skating, just whatever seemed of interest to each other at that time...
