About Me:

Not gonna lie. Dealing with “dating”, at this stage of life is proving to be incredibly…..awkward. Writing out a decent profile/bio is a real challenge. What to say, what not to say.
If you look up INTJ-Architect Personalty, you will understand how I deal with life.
I stay in shape by training in the martial art Krav Maga, 6 hours a week. I recently passed a Level 2 Practitioner Test.
I have 7 children, scattered across the country, we have solid, productive relationships. They learned at an early age that sometimes it was necessary for them to sit down, and shut up. I believe the current count is 9 Grandchildren, and 3 Great Grand kids. Last year, I took a month off from my shop, went back to Missouri to keep an eye on 2 of them. My Daughter was an Army MP Drill Sergeant at the time and had to take a mandatory class. No on-post child care at Ft. Leonard Wood.
I am spiritually strong, and try to hear the Still Small Voice. I am physically strong, and tough. Three Ortho-Docs tell me I have a high tolerance to pain.
I wrote an obituary for a much loved family dog, it still chokes me up to think of it.
Courage is the ability to take appropriate/necessary action, in spite of your fears. I have courage.
I would like to tell you about how I don’t live a fearful life, but internet “dating” is burying that myth. Anxiety abounds, over-ruling my normal self-confidence.
I want to help others succeed.
I am a warrior, I have raised warriors.
I am brutally honest. I am fiercely loyal.
I completed a 20 hour Tactical Combat Casualty Care course. I am now capable of delaying death until EMT’s arrive. I’m extremely proud of that.

Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
and the deep roots are not touched by the frost”

LDS singles I'd Like to Meet:

I would like to connect with women, 50 to 65, who are active, inquisitive, and who are willing to put in the time and effort to establish a friendship first. I’m not tossing around the “M” word yet. That level will require serious dedication, to the point of Divine Intervention.
I appreciate people who say what they mean, and mean what they say.
I hope to meet someone who understands that it’s important, in a relationship, to divide the pain, and multiply the joy.
A couple of verses from Bob Dylan’s ‘Shelter From the Storm’ speak to me. How about you?
A serious companion will want to go places, and do stuff.

Church of Jesus Christ:

I was inactive for several years. Now that I am working to put myself back together again I am attending Sacrament regularly. And they are giving me something to do. I told them to be careful what they ask for, they just might get it.
The Holy Spirit, the Gift of Discernment, and personal revelation always guide me.
I have a Testimony, it’s quite simple. I believe it’s true, all of it. Anything more becomes rote prayer.
