Hello out there! I’m rewriting this profile because there have been some changes in what I’m looking for here. It’s been a few a months and this has definitely been a learning experience. So here goes.
Hanging out, reading, libraries and museums, art galeries, discussing current affairs, history and religion, picnics, go carts, amusement parks (I'm a fiend for roller coasters), movies, football (new fan), comedy shows, live concerts, theater, bowling (still learning) and basketball. Love to try new foods. So far I’ve had: Mexican, Ethiopian, Ghanaian, Indian and Korean. Love to travel although I haven’t done it nearly as much as I would like. Working out (elliptical machine, weight training, learning yoga and Pilates, walking and dancing) I’m very interested in being as healthy as possible. We all know “good black don’t crack” but I want to go on as healthy and beautiful as possible for as long as possible :-). I’ve lost body fat (YAY) and am interested in meeting someone I can work out and be active with. I have newer pics on my phone showing my weight loss but can't figure out how to get them on here. IF asked, I am willing to share them.
Music I Love:
R&B, rap, show tunes, gospel, house, disco, the 60’s and 70’s, ANYTHING by Prince or U2, the list goes on.
My Wish List of things to do:
Hiking, camping, my first plane ride (no, I’ve never flown), a helicopter ride, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, a walk-a-thon, learning to swim (I love the water, never learned to swim)
Why I’m Here:
I was going to write something like, “I’m here to meet new people and if something happens, then fine.” Doesn’t that sound lame and like a lot of other people? :-) Well, since I pride myself on being different, I’ll say something else.
I want to learn as much as a can from other people who may start out sharing some of my interests but who have other interests that I find intriguing. I believe in going fearlessly into this life, as such I want to meet people who have a zest for life. Also, I’m really a pretty positive person and I love to give and receive encouragement. So the negative, Napoleon Complex having, self conscience, degrading or the never having a good thing to say about anything dude need not bother. Of course it would be wonderful to meet someone and have a really meaningful relationship, thus my saying I’m looking for long term. I do realize, however, that takes time and effort. So in the mean time, in-between-time I would like to date and have many groovy (yes, I said groovy, lol) experiences.
I must speak on my religious beliefs. While I respect ALL religions and have no problem with people of different beliefs (I was married to a devout Sunni Muslim and we had no problems with our differing religious views), I am Christian. I love living for God and I’m in like a gang member, got to die out! LOL! I so often miss the mark of the higher calling, but I strive for it. I recognize that while I’m saved, sanctification is something that takes the rest of my life and I’m working diligently towards that. I will NEVER brow beat anyone about their personal beliefs. The Holy Spirit is a gentleman; he does not force Himself on anyone and neither do I. I just have to say this because if that is a problem for anyone, you would probably do well to contact someone else. I am also willing to debate my views. I find it fun and challenging. But I tell you this, if you come at me like that come correct! I debate to win, not to convert.
So there you are. This is long, I recognize that. Thank you for reading. Here’s to meeting new people and making new memories.
