Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a single sexy black man looking for a single sexy black woman!

I have FULL BODY pictures from 2012 and 2014. I also have close up face shots from 2012 to 2014.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Beginning in December of 2011 I was forced to deal with a challenging situation which ultimately left me homeless. Through the grace of GOD I am now “on the mend” as they say. Things are stable and progressing nicely. Actually, life is very good right now. :-) **I will soon be moving into my own place. Feb 2015 or March 2015 at the latest**

In March of 2013, through no fault of my own, I became homeless (evicted from my very nice apartment in University City on Haverford Ave. I also had my car towed away). Obviously the details of the unfortunate and life altering events are not relevant (at least not at this juncture), only the fact that they happened. If we have chemistry and connect I would be more than willing to share those details with you if you are curious. Just know that I my circumstances had nothing to do with any illegal activities ON MY PART. I have never been arrested in my life. I have no criminal record. I do not smoke or use any illegal drugs and I only drink socially (which is very infrequent). My circumstances in a nutshell were the result of a very serious problem that our nation continues to ignore and refuses to take seriously. It is problem that is reaching a boiling point. But I digress.

I currently reside in a very nice transitional housing facility in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. It is called the DePaul House (I have a large very nice private room. It’s like living in a hotel). The DePaul House is off of Chelten Ave., near the Frances D. Pastorious charter school (I may have misspelled the last name of the school). The DePaul House is not far from the intersection of Chelten and Chew. DePaul House used to be living quarters for Catholic priests (the building is huge; high ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors).

Residents of the DePaul House are allowed visitors on the first level / ground floor BUT not in their rooms.
Curfew is 12:00 p.m. (midnight) Sun-Thurs. and 1:00 a.m. Fri. and Sat. I am also allowed overnight privileges (if you comply with all rules, pay your fees and savings and do your chores you get overnight privileges). So I can stay out overnight. I just have to let the staff know a day in advance what day I would like to stay out overnight.

For the record I am not embarrassed by my CURRENT SHORT TERM SITUATION so you shouldn’t be either. I am old enough and wise enough to understand that bad things can and do happen to good people and I actually feel blessed that my situation is as good as it is. There are many individuals who are literally living on the streets and there are even some individuals living in substandard, dilapidated, homeless shelters, and in squalid private and public housing that is overrun with rats, roaches and other vermin! I thank GOD that I do not live under conditions such as those.

I do FULLY realize and understand that someone in my situation, who does not CURRENTLY have his own place OR a car may not be the LEAST BIT ATTRACTIVE to you. It is very likely that you may have already stopped reading. That is certainly your prerogative and it’s OK. I’m not mad atcha, really I’m not. I understand. BUT to my surprise I have come to realize that there are actually some women who are willing to look beyond the material. Maybe you are one of them, in which case you may still be reading. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE nice things and Lord knows I certainly do enjoy the finer things in life as well. I have enjoyed the good life before so I know what it’s like, and I will enjoy it again. But the type of woman I’m interested in is going to look beyond the window dressing; the material trappings of success, if you will. The kind of woman I’m looking for will look a little deeper for things like character, morals, class, integrity, ambition, work ethic, potential, warmth, affection, sensuality, passion, honesty, loyalty etc. Hell anybody can BUY and OWN THINGS! All it takes is money! Both kind, considerate, personable, classy and mean, nasty, selfish, rude individuals can have lots of money, own big houses and nice cars. But what is more important than the acquisition and owning of THINGS is how another human being makes you feel when you are with them. In this case, how a man makes you feel when you are with him. Does he make you feel warm all over when you’re around them? Do you light up when you see his face or hear his voice? Does he make you laugh? Does he make you smile? Does he make you feel SPECIAL, like you’re the FINEST AND SEXIEST SISTA ON EARTH? Does he ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU? Does being with him give you a sense of security, fulfillment, peace, serenity and happiness? I could go on and on but I think you get my drift. THINGS can never have that effect on you (and if they do DON’T SWEAT IT WE ARE DEFINITELY NOT A MATCH!). Only that special someone in your life can have that sort of effect on you. Of course I’m not telling you anything that you don’t already know, I’m just reinforcing what you’ve known for most of your adult life, that is of course, IF you are the type of woman I am interested in. 

I’m currently in school pursuing my B.S. degree in Network Engineering. I’m a full time student at Community College of Philadelphia on Spring Garden. I’m in their articulated program that allows you to obtain your associates degree with them and then transfer to a 4 year college to complete 2 more years and obtain your Bachelor’s degree. I am on the Dean’s List. I also earn a few dollars working a PT Job at CareerLink in the Germantown section of Philly. I am currently studying to take two computer certifications before June; Comptia A+ and Comptia Network+. *I will be moving into my own apartment in February or March of 2015. I have already been approved for housing assistance (section-8).

I am completely self-sufficient so I don’t want your money and I don’t want to move in with you. I just want your companionship, your laughter, your smile, your warmth, your affection and your passion. I also do not have a car. I do however have PA drivers license and it is my intent to secure a vehicle again and drive (I had a car; bought and paid for, but it was also lost as a direct result of my circumstances).

Although I’m not rolling in dough I can afford to occasionally dine out at any of the popular inexpensive eateries frequented by most working people (AppleBee’s, Golden Coral, Boston Market, or one of the numerous Chinese buffets around Philly), a movie every now and then, a dance or any other inexpensive event, affair or activity. There are also many activities in and around Philly that are free or they cost next to nothing (the Philadelphia Art Museum has a penny day every month as I recall). And there are other activities couples can take part in,.walk-a-thons, running events, church outings, etc.). As I see it the most important thing is spending quality time with a friend, companion or significant other doing things that you both enjoy and enjoy doing together as a couple ( that could very well include, playing board games, playing cards, working out together at the gym, walks in the park, watching TV or DVDs, preparing home cooked meals together [I would be more than happy to contribute to the purchasing and preparation of shared meals ] ).

And I should make something else clear, I am not trying to sweet talk you into hooking up with a man who sees nobility in POVERTY. That type of man is a loser (at least from my point of view). I’m not running that kind of game. I intend to acquire what I have lost regardless of WHO I AM WITH. Alone or in a relationship, self-sufficiency, affluence and prosperity is my objective. It is not optional. It is mandatory. That is about living up to my GOD given potential and my family name; that is for my OWN satisfaction. I’m just here to ask if you might be interested in taking that journey with me.

I am revealing the aforementioned RELEVANT facts about myself because I have always been of the mindset that it is critically important to be upfront and truthful with any prospective companion regarding IMPORTANT and RELEVANT facts about yourself (housing situation: live alone, with someone, *shelter/transitional housing, diseases/STDs, drug use, are you wanted by the law, etc), so that individual can make an informed decision when deciding if they are interested in contacting you, responding to you or meeting you based on the information that you provide.

If we decide to meet of course a meet and greet in a public place will be appropriate for your sense of security and safety as well as mine. You need to feel safe and secure with me and I need to feel safe and secure with you. We also need to actually see one another FACE TO FACE so that we can decide if we are actually physically attracted to one another. Let’s just say that profile pics sometimes, INTENTIONALLY OR UNINTENTIONALLY LIE or don’t accurately portray or represent all your FLAWS and ASSETS. So we need to see each other IN DA FLESH to decide if there will be any follow up dates! CHEMISTRY IS ESSENTIAL! DON’T YOU AGREE? ;-). For the record, I am a 6’4”, about 200 lbs., slim, light skinned African American man. I have long wavy hair and I’m sure that you can tell by now that I am a literate and articulate man. Word has it that I’m easy on the eyes but of course you will have to decide for yourself. “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” as they say. I look like my profile pics and I actually look even better in person. LOL!

Well, there you have it. my long winded “War & Peace” introduction. Hopefully you got as much out of reading it as I got out of writing it ( I felt it was necessary given my current situation. You deserve nothing less than the truth. I want to “keep it real” or “wun hunnit!” meaning, 100%, as the saying goes. LOL!).

If there is ANYTHING ELSE that you would like to know don’t hesitate to ask. In closing I invite you to contact me whenever you feel so inclined. Evenings and weekends are best but you can call me anytime. If I am unable to answer (because I’m at work or in class), I will return your call promptly – promise. Just leave a message (text or voice mail). My number is 267-581-1054. My e-mail is of course you can send your reply here too. If I don’t hear from you I’ll know you’re not interested. But if you are interested you can tell me more about yourself and if your profile doesn’t include YOUR REAL NAME please include that (yup, it’s your turn now). I look forward to hearing from you.

Word of mouth is that I'm not too hard on the eyes (..but you will have be the judge of that.) "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" as they say.
