I have been a born-again Christian since my early teens and my relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important thing in my life! To me, being a Christian isn't about religion, it's about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and trusting in him completely for my salvation. I attend a small local Baptist church enjoy spending time with my family, (and my dog) being outdoors, biking, swimming, baseball, dining out, long walks, taking care of projects around the house and attending occasional church/social activities. There are times however, when nothing beats a quiet evening at home. I'm an "old fashioned values" kind of person. I'm hoping to find someone who has also placed Jesus first and foremost in their life, is caring, faithful, lighthearted, has a sense humor and shares some of the same interests. (A person who loves dogs would be a real plus!) A non-smoker/drinker is a must. If this describes you, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm not a regular member and can't send or receive mail so feel free to send an IM if you see me online. I would like to add that I am not looking for a long distance relationship so I would kindly ask that only those within a reasonable distance of northeast Ohio reply. I would also like to limit my correspondence to those close to my age (37-48) who like myself are single/never married and have not had any children. If you don't meet this criteria, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME. If I were to ever get married, I would like marriage and children to be a special first time experience for both. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.
