Lover of God with big plans, a big heart and growing faith. . . I'm waiting (contentedly, though not idly) to meet you! I am a unique Christian woman who wants the best. . . From God, life, love, and myself. Friends will tell you I'm fun, energetic, discriminating, adventuresome, vivacious, polished, and smart. I'd say I'm affectionate, persistent, loyal, appreciative, encouraging, and hard working. I think outside of the box. I have a very full life, love my job, adore my children, who are grown; and have a network of fabulous friends. I want to be in the very center of God's will for my life. . . Perhaps, in His time, alongside an exceedingly special man. I try to navigate life with an open mind, generous heart, sense of humor, and an attitude of gratitude. I'm successful because I help others succeed. . . And work hard to find common ground and see the good in people. Honest and genuine, I expect the same in a man. . . Because life's too short and too precious for anything less. To me, the best things in life aren't "things, " but a thoughtfully lived life, time with loved ones, and the profound pleasure of helping others. I don't want a man I can live with. . . I want a man I can't live without! Your character and heart interest me more than external trappings. If you are naturally optimistic, confident yet humble, emotionally healthy, and can laugh at life's little and not-so-little stresses (and even at yourself) , then we have something in common. If you are also caring, kind, and honorable, we could be a natural fit. You're a great conversationalist. . . And listener. You love to laugh, yet also appreciate thoughtful heart-to-heart moments. You instinctively choose the high road, and your faith in Christ defines who you are. You enjoy your work, yet you have made room in your life for a romantic relationship. . . And you value striking a balance between the two.
