PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT a paying member on SCN, so I can NOT respond to you through an email. You will have to send me YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS before we can communicate. WHAT AM I LOOKING FOR IN A POTENTIAL MATE? I am looking for the LOVE OF MY LIFE, the one that GOD has CHOSEN for me. I have NEVER had AGAPE love in a marriage (even though I was married for 18 years!), so I am so excited that God may be preparing someone JUST FOR ME!! We will have a strong SPIRITUAL CLICK, as well as PHYSICAL ATTRACTION. He will always be "YOUNG AT HEART" and a hopeless ROMANTIC. He will be a STRONG and DEDICATED Christian man (A MAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART) who understands and practices UNCONDITIONAL (AGAPE) LOVE, and who strives to put GOD FIRST in his life on a DAILY basis. He will be CONFIDENT in who he is in his Christian walk. He needs to be a kind and caring person that has a COMPASSIONATE HEART, for if he can't treat ALL people with dignity and respect, then he is NOT likely to be CONSISTENT with a MATE, either. He needs to have a great love for CHILDREN, for my children are the most important people in my life (other than God). I am also attracted to someone who is good at COMMUNICATING his deepest feelings and who is intellectually stimulating. A good sense of HUMOR is very attractive in anyone, especially the one you choose to journey through life with. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO ADD. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . that I am CAUTIOUS when it comes to new relationships and that I like to get to know someone well before I will commit to a relationship. Reaching the stage of being BEST FRIENDS is very important in a relationship BEFORE you reach the stage of LOVING someone. By following GOD'S PLAN for DATING, the LOVE will grow and deepen in a HOLY way into the kind of love that lasts "until death do we part". PURITY BEFORE MARRIAGE is so important in building the right kind of relationship and a LOVE that lasts for a LIFETIME!! I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ADD. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . that I am a HOPELESS ROMANTIC. I love romantic movies, walking in the rain on a hot summer day, laughing and being silly, strolling on a beach (especially at sunset), Hawaii, holding hands, whispering "sweet nothings" to the one I love, love letters, beautiful love songs, and hugs and kisses. Whomever God has in mind for me will be showered with ALL MY LOVE, and I will be TOTALLY DEVOTED to him. ***One more thing I would like to emphasize is that I DON'T expect PERFECTION in a man, for he would expect the same in me!! There is only ONE who walked the earth that was perfect.
