I have been out of the dating scene for some time. I think that dating needs to be casual at first, then more serious as things go well. I became a christian about 5 years ago. I do my best to live according to the precepts God has laid out for us. I hope to find a person who lives by the same philosophy and has a strong relationship with God, as well as their family. I believe family is very important, and I hope to have a family of my own some day. So does my mother; she is persistent when it comes to demanding a granddaughter!!
