Hi my name is Jake! I'm a son of God, disciple of Jesus, and proud member of JK Rowlings Griffyndor house. Every day is an adventure and I'm hoping to find someone to adventure my way to heaven with.
I think the purpose of every day is to know, love, and serve God. It's always fun to try to think of ways to invite God into my daily life as a lay person. I'm definitely looking for someone else who wants God to be part of their daily life, not just their Sundays.
After being received into the church in Easter 2015 I fasted from dating until now because I wanted to focus on developing a relationship with God and learning to participate in the Church. I currently participate in multiple Young Adult Groups and volunteer as a CCD teacher. I'm on Catholicmatch because a close friend encouraged me to start dating again.
When it comes to my ideal match, appearance matters but it's not everything. The quickest way to my heart is to be gentle, kind, faithful, encouraging, and to be dependent on God. Having a sense of humor, or at least tolerating mine is also helpful. (I was a class clown starting as early as Kinddrgarten)
Marriage is very important to me. It's a vocation between two people for the greater glory of God. Let's say we both get married and the day after the wedding you slip in the shower and get paralyzed for life. We can't go on dates as easily, are stuck living on one income, and aren't able to have sex within marriage anymore. It would still be important to me to stay faithful and walk with you to heaven til death do us part. For your sake, I hope that all doesn't actually happen! But if it does I'll be there.
Marriage isn't an act of the heart, it's an act of the will. Our romanticized pop culture has distracted us from that truth. I'm looking for someone else who understands that love is an action, not a feeling and is committed to choosing love even when it feels kind of tough.
If you also see marriage as a lifelong journey to heaven and are trying to meet someone to embark with hopefully we can get to know each other here.
