Manhattan, Kansas, United States
About Me:

I love adventure. Mortality is a great adventure: every challenge, every new experience. Diverse people, distant places, weather, wildlife, technology, stories. New ideas, and ways of life.



I'm a complex thinker from a complex and well-educated family. I enjoy the complexities of simple things: Bugs, plants, birds, cats I see each day. Patterns in Nature, culture & creation. God is an amazing artist. Kansas has infinite examples of his many masterpieces

So does where you are.
You are one of his masterpieces.

I love to share the glory of His creation.

I have adult children with complicated lives. My family is an adventure. My current big adventure is taking care of my elderly parents. It is an honor and a privilege and very hard work

I love learning and experiencing new things. I love to converse through any media but especially in person, on a small profound adventure.

I prefer a balanced conversation: Each sharing equally. But I can also monologue or listen.

I enjoy all sorts of friends, both in person and far away, especially if they are willing to discuss the Gospel, or the church, or how relationships work, or how to be a better person.

or Anime,
or creative pursuits...
....or Pokemon Go?

or explore the world together either in person or through any media of communication.

Every marriage should be founded on a solid friendship. Let's meet on the middle ground between us, which is where God is.

I am in good health for my age and enjoy striving to improve my health. Sometimes. But I also miss a lot of sleep while reading, watching anime, talking to friends far away, doing arts and crafts, pondering, writing, cleaning, swimming at the gym, taking the grand-dog for an outing, visiting with my children, organizing, walking in the park with friends from church, etc.

I joined the church in my mid 20's. The gospel is very central to my life. It is my favorite topic of conversation. Even while I'm talking about Anime or Pokemon or wildlife, it's all infused with the gospel.

I love to study the Gospel and learn about many other things. I studied Social science, anthropology, literature, and many other things at Kansas State University.

I am writing a novel. Although it is the story of a romantic relationship it is much more about family, coming of age, religious differences, psychology, philosophy, and literature.

I love the temple. I used to go often, but have not gone since Covid. Big city driving is terrifying. If we go on a road trip together you get to drive the cities and I'll drive the open highways

I would love to serve a mission, but in the meantime, I share the gospel by living the gospel. It’s an amazing adventure, even the difficult and painful parts, and my many failings.

LDS singles I'd Like to Meet:

I would like to meet a man who plans to live a long healthy life having adventures together, continually striving together with joy to help each other become better people and better companions, to live a Christ-centered life serving others.

I love people who are spontaneously honest; people who like themselves well enough to not try to impress others. Why dress up and pose for a fancy profile picture? A random selfy of what you look like right this second shows more truth. I mean if we were married we would see each other at our most slovenly and still see the intrinsic beauty, right?

all that said:

Right now I am taking care of my parents.

If I were to marry while they still live, my companion would have to be here with me taking care of them.

Thus, for now I am seeking to build deep and lasting friendships which could become the foundation of a great marriage [and many great adventures and conversations] when the time is right.

And to explore the world through talking to like-minded people wherever they are.

To be my eternal companion you would have to become fully integrated into my family and I Into yours. We would become one family. family unity is essential.

Church of Jesus Christ:

I came from a non-religious family but sought a relationship with God. I felt His presence throughout my life. Missionaries knocked on my door and discussed the gospel with me for several months. I chose to give it a try and I have loved it every step of the way.

My comprehension of the gospel is continually deepening. It is a joyful adventure.

My favorite scripture is where Jesus tells us to Love God with all our heart, mind, and soul, and to love all his children, even ourselves, the same way he loves us. This mutual love with God and his children, this family unity, Is the essential foundation of the Gospel.

The message of scripture is more important than memorizing numbers of chapter and verse because the message is infused into every chapter and verse.

I also love the prophet, the temple, the sacrament, the opportunities to serve and learn and share, and many other aspects of His church.

I would love to share that love with a faithful and humble eternal companion.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
