Originally from the South Suburbs of Chicago...pretty rough neighborhood but grew up on a skateboard listening to punk rock and old school hip hop...my friends had my back and I had theirs. Moved to Atlanta about 10 years ago...came down for family, to start a business, and go back to school. My business fell through because of this whole economy thing but haven't given up trying to be an enterpernuer. I have a few other ideas I'm beating around. Been in management for the same company for 10 years, got promoted and demoted so im looking to move on to a bigger and better company. I'm currently in school for an Associates degree in the management field. Between all this I usually just spend time with and taking care of family. They need me financially, so if you're looking for a sugar daddy it ain't me. I've heard any girl that can be bought isn't worth having.
As far as a relationship, I'm seeking companionship more than anything. I just got out of a screwy 10 month relationship, lied to and cheated on. I'd like to take it slow with somone I meet online. Chat for awhile, ask the right questions, facebook each other and Skype or FaceTime till I know the person is right.... So you know i consider myself a nice honest guy...who tries to remain hardcore and real in this crazy world. Things I won't do is send explicit pictures, ask for just a hook up or other douchebag things guys do on sites like these. If nice guys finish last , I'd rather finish last.
I'm open to a lot of different types of women, but if you're crazy liberal or all about Obama we probably won't get along. It's not that I'm even Republican, I've just learned to make up my own mind politically and philosophically, I'm true libertarian and not in the party sense but what the word is defined as.
Things I'm doing now is looking for the right career so I can become financially independent, I've become serious about getting a book of poetry published and am just trying to become a better person wholistically. I enjoy trying to eat and drink things that are good for body and mind, although it can be hard to do on a budget and a fast paced life.
One thing I noticed about online dating sites is that everyone paints a picture of how outgoing or happy and how much they enjoy life. I gotta be honest life sucks sometimes but you just gotta suck it up and move on.
Crazy things I'd like to do but will probably never: write a screen play or a novel, retire to Spain, start a political group or party, create a literary movement, or in general just become enlightened and just not give a f@&$.
At this point if you want to know more don't be afraid to ask or like me on meet me.
I've only said I love you to two girls; one made sense and the other had me fooled....its a hardcore emotion to feel and those words should mean something....as hard as it is I'm willing to try a third time....
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Probably a walk in the park and/or a picnic by the lake (depends on the weather) ... Not opposed to a quiet restaurant or coffee house, also depends on the girls interests...
