ok, First off, gentlemen: if you're married, involved, just want a booty call, or really have no idea what the heck you want, please skip my profile. There is nothing wrong with the above, I'm just not the one.
If you're still reading, I'll tell you a little about myself. I'm not an Angry Black Woman that some men are quick to define black women as. Despite being burnt a few times, I know that there are many really good guys out there. I've been in relationships that I could make lots of money by writing a novel about, and I've also been in some very good relationships (I could write about those too, but they don't sell very well -- lol). I have a very positive outlook on life, and believe that most people are really decent. Most of us are just striving to be happy. However, I'm not oblivious to the fact that there are some....let's just say...very challenging people (both men and woman) out here too. I'm at the point in my life where I cannot, and will not deal with unnecessary stress or drama. I can spot it a mile away and avoid it at all cost. However, if you and I are on the same page, you're a lucky guy. I'm not conceited, or overconfident, I'm just at the point where I've made some errors in the past but... I got this now and you will benefit from my new found wisdom. lol. I believe that one of the most important things in a relationship is to be able to communicate with the one you're close with. OPEN AND HONEST COMMUNICATION. Without it you have nothing. I also believe in some traditional values when it comes to dating and don't have a problem with most of those roles.
I'm into helping others, especially those that cannot help themselves. I'm NOT Mother Theresa but I do believe that each one of us can make a positive difference in this, sometimes crazy world we live in. I don't like sitting around just talking about a solution. I believe that action is the cause of real "Change".
I find most people are not really into reading a looooong description so I'll stop here. Please proof what you send to me. A message full of misspelled, and grammatically incorrect words make me cringe. LOL. Looking forward to chatting more.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates can be awkward, or they can be great. I like to take advantage of a first date by beginning to know the person I'm with. You can't do this in a movie, a club, or any other loud settings. A nice quiet dinner, with maybe just hanging out in a lounge type atmosphere, or sitting in a park on a nice day is the best way to begin the "getting to know you" process. Later, if the vibe is there, a nice comedy, or jazz club would be nice.
