Read below before you go and write to me. I grew up in the projects in Seattle, WA. I spent most of my childhood as a "ward of the state" because my mother was inconsiderate and selfish. After all is said and done, my skin is white, my brain and personality are not so much.
I feel compelled to mention... At my age, I can rightly anticipate that anyone I'm with is going to have children at home, or maybe even living on their own. If there are children at home, I am still open to a relationship, but it changes the dynamic significantly, and will likely slow down the relationship's progression. I will not attempt to place myself in the children's path, I will not ask them or expect them to look at me as a fatherly figure. If you are expecting me to be a father to children I have not "fathered", I will not be available for that unless their natural father is completely unavailable to take up their fatherly role. Also, if the father of your children is the jealous type, be forewarned that I do not tolerate aggressive behavior and if they step up on me, I will deal with them harshly.
I will not date WASP'y Caucasian women, no way no how! Don't even ask. If you're mixed with something else and have the body and personality to prove it, I'm open to chatting you up. This sounds strange to some, but I want to avoid the weirdness that occurs when uneducated bastions of white middle-class privilege attempt to relate to me.
I like old-school rap, and activist hip-hop. But I also like old country music, not the modern garbage. I'm a major Willie Nelson fan.
I love eccentric, freaky women a lot more than vanilla girls who were goody two-shoes in high school.
I sometimes ride the A Train from Inwood all the way to Far Rock just for fun. The subway is the ultimate social interactivity tool.
Oh, a couple more things... I'm what is known as a "supersoaker" and i'm endowed a little above average.
Not a bar. A nice dining establishment would be perfect. I've always wanted to try out Sylvia's, but she's way too tourist-y. There's lots of soul food places, but not really romantic, are they? I'm really into sitting down and talking about ourselves (me and you) over a light meal, maybe some appetizers, something to keep the conversation going. Afterwards, it's up to you.
