In summary: first, as you can see from my very RECENT pic I'm super fit, kinda amazing no thanks at all to standard medicine since I was on a powerful chemo drug for 3 decades and retired early with a dismal prognosis to be alive today as 5 years ago I looked not like my pic but more like Job must have due to systemic lymphoma. Second, I'm very bright, retired early as aVP of Education Services for arguably the highest IQ per employee company in the US, whose business is certification of high career stakes knowledge, including Board certification of most every medical specialty as well as the Lawyers Multi-states & Professional Responsibility examinations, and the entrance examination taken by 50% of all 4 year college bound students. Third, for those few who truly know what a firstfruit is as told Biblically (hint: not every saved Christian is a "firstfruit"), based on my journey and experiences spiritually, evidence indicates I may be on a path to be among His firstfruits. Fourth, I'm a lot of fun. So in body, mind and spirit, I'm grade A; and as detailed below, I'm broadly fun. I'm hoping to find my female compliment. That is I'd love to find an attractive lady who like me is bright, fun and fit; a quality person with mature well developed Christian values, bright & interesting (college educated a big plus), fit (willingness to exercise is a marker of more than merely just physical health, and a tennis player or golfer would be a mutually sharable plus), and someone who who like me enjoys a variety of fun things including dancing, theater, beach outings & pool days, movies, some travel & resorts, and a wide variety of music from doo wop oldies, to jazz, to symphony, reggae, country, coffee house & beach deck soloists, gospel, and opera a plus. Most of all, I'd like to meet a real, mature Christian woman, someone who believes that as God intended two can become as one. I'm far more than a nominal or still maturing Christian, and I'm looking for the same. In this regard, you can assess your character and personality via the 9 standards listed in Gal 5:22. I'm of high character and integrity. If this were a secular site I'm sure that funny and rich would be more highly prized, which means at least in the secular realm a really comical, richer, lower life would be most appealing. But since this is a Christian site I'm hoping for better here. I'm a server, in my relationships and I've long been engaged in community service leadership in several capacities. I've used and am using my gifted intellectual capacity to teach His word, and to write a book on the Only True Fix for America's Five Health care problems. I'm presently engaged in writing another book titled God's Purpose for Humans, Why He Needed to Create Us. I'm akin to Job. The Lord allowed me to develop a form of lymphoma as a young man. The form manifested itself externally. I was on a powerful, toxic chemo drug for decades. I retired early so as to resign standard medical care and undertake my own treatment, and enjoy what remaining time the Lord had allotted me. But just as He picked and interacted with Elijah and Job, He repeatedly showed me that He'd picked me too for a purpose that He Himself participated, and so accordignly He physically manifested His presence repeatedly, just as He did with both Elijah and Job. That's the subject of a third book. As you can see from my recent photo on Clearwater Beach, the Lord has restored me, just as He did Job after his afflictions directly from the evil one. Today I'm in great health & physical condition from high level competitive tennis. Like Job, the Lord had me experience direct, unmistakable, extended afflictions of the evil one exceeding even my serious physical illness such that I even looked like Job at times. But He also showed me that He was with me, repeatedly and in so many ways such that the book will be an amazing contemporary testamony & blessing to others. Tennis, golf, music, dancing, reading, beach & waterfront dining, day resort outings, theater large & small (plays, symphony outdoor & venue, opera), some domestic travel are my broad interests. University of Minnesota, MBA and University of Wisconsin, Madison, BS cum laude educated. I'm already financially secure. Looking for a relationship of mutual financially non dependant need. I live on a peninsula in a garden like paradise with 2 golf courses, 2 pools, 6 tennis courts, 10 minutes from the sugar white sand Gulf beach rated #1 in the US on my west and 9 minutes to Tampa Bay to my east. I'm interesting and interested in others, taking each as a potentially worthy unique individual. In addition to Gal 5:22 which itemizes the fruits of a holy spirit endowed character, my favorite Bible verse advises the meek shall inherit the earth. Meek isn't weak, rather it is a state of character; caring, kind, serving, gentle, sensitive, honest & trustworthy, playful, stimulating, and especially so with one's lifetime partner. If we share these characteristics I'd love to hear from you. My name is Doug.
