Hopefully, you got my tagline. If not, I'm not sure we'll get very far.
Let's get this part out of the way, right up front! I'm a BBW. If that's a problem for you, that's really okay. To each his (or her) own. I've already lost almost 70 lbs, and I'm feeling amazing - but I don't want anyone in my life who isn't encouraging me in my success (maybe even go to the gym with me!), so if you can't like me as I am now, you don't get my time when I'm done with my quest for amazing health!
On that note, I might compliment a profile that I find interesting, funny and/or well written - please take it as just that...a compliment.
As for me? Well, without ME, it's just "Awe, so...?"
You're looking at a self-sufficient, but old-fashioned woman. I own my own business, but appreciate a man who does little things like open doors and has a big vocabulary. Yes, I really meant vocabulary, smarty pants!
What I'm looking for is someone who's ready to become best friends, and eventually lovers too - for life. I would love a guy who makes me laugh, and has a solid faith in God. I'd like to meet a real gentleman, who will listen to my words, and bring laughter, loyalty and honesty to the table.
In case you didn't catch it already, I'm attracted to black men pretty much exclusively, and I love men who love to LAUGH! It takes a high intellect to have a witty sense of humor, and that's an extremely attractive quality to me. I don't have kids, but I love them, and I'm open to whatever the Lord has in store for my future.
Guys who are funny, articulate, nice eyes, bald head, good smile, dimples, compassion, pride in one's work or hobbies, a nice voice (and a great laugh), good manners, a little bit of the bad-boy (but not too much) and passion! *It's a rare man who can give that LOOK without being creepy...HA!* Reaching things on high shelves, a willingness to carry groceries and kill bugs, and a gentle but firm touch is such a thrill...
Gold teeth, pants that don't fit, neon or loud shoes, trunk rattle, bad tippers, guys who talk about themselves and ask nothing that shows interest in who I am, profile pics with most of your clothing removed, more profile pics of your children than you, profile pics of your car/house/possessions, terrible spelling and guys who don't like animals!
Honestly, a lot of men have lost their sense of integrity. They disappear, rather than tell you they met someone else or are already involved...and some are even married. If you're married, engaged, separated, "just talking", or are "just friends" and she "won't accept it"...please keep looking. I've heard it all. No, your relationship is not complicated. What's complicated is keeping your stories straight. Ain't nobody got time for that!
That being said, if you're hilarious, well mannered, are willing to be open to what might be a new path in your life, FUNNY, love God and put Him first, have a good sense of family, a good work ethic and compassion for your fellow man, then maybe we've got some catching up to do!
You should know that I have no ulterior motives, and I have no poker face, so I don't bother lying. I'm passionate, hilarious, creative, a total smart-ass, and loyal to a fault, and completely, imperfectly awesome. I CHOOSE to be hopeful that there are still more than a few good ones left! I hope you're out there. It's been a long journey...
Ok, so I've talked to a few men on here who have waited until they got my number and then promptly invited me to their home before we even meet in person. Please, please understand that is a bit creepy and it's not why I'm here. If you're not really looking for a date, but a "date", try the Current. I hear there are professionals for that right here in the Alamo City. There's also a 'different' kind of site you might want to try. I'm not on there, but you should go.
No, really. Go. Stop looking at my page. Go on... off with you!
If you're interested in an actual date, like the old-fashioned kind, I would love to go someplace neutral, and in public, where we can have a conversation...
Coffee, a quiet dinner...whatever works for good conversation and lots of laughs!
