Who doesn't see all of the people who've gotten together and broke up because of lack of feeling control. One minute they're making a decision like "till death," the next, an idiot does something to change that decision, or even worse, "the feeling just isn't there anymore." Divorce? Not a part of my beliefs, and, those women who have too many kids, and didn't listen to your momma and daddy, got pregnant at 16, 18, and 21... then, didn't keep the baby's daddies, especially those that aren't willing to accept a daddy/father/husband/friend in your life, See Your Way Out! Ladies for games, sorry I've had my fill of them. Also, those who are rude, insensitive, suffer from a lack of understanding, and those who are unable to communicate starting with a conversation (including those of you who are too busy, or can't take the time to sell "hold on", or "I've gotta go") need not be here.

Sorry to start off negative, but this is the internet. I need to have some kind of filter in place to reach my goal for a love.

I went to college for business, and my career is in the Entertainment Business. No profits yet, but I take care of myself. Understand where I think, "Get Rich or die trying." Rich = Time, Family, Friends, and Money! I am a business first, play later type of person. I am into conversation and being outside in the nice weather. My hobbies are literary fiction and non fiction writing, writing and producing music, playing tennis, playing racquet ball, and computers. My main goal is to start and run an Entertainment Marketing Corporation.

I’m looking for the answer to a question that has been on my mind for years. One that comes about daily as I grow in this world trying to accomplish my goals. An equation that needs to be answered but hasn't for reasons beyond my control. I reach for something in life that if you don't believe, isn't easy. Not only does that include my business, but, life long friendship. I know to most it sounds sappy, corny, or impossible.

Man has but one opposite put here on earth by God to move forward within life, (Woman). My assumption, there is one woman here for me. At this age of maturity, I can see the images of mistakes I’ve made by not choosing. Then, there are those who have unfortunately come into my life and distracted the one and only love for me from coming into my life and making it worth living. Of course, I allow people into my life. Love is chance and a decision before it is a feeling. But, before my selection is correct, how many prospects must I offer opportunity without rejection. I ask myself, where is my love. And, with each conclusion I have failed to find "The One". Oh yeah! LOVE In life… When in love, the relationship won’t start positive and end negative. Two people take the time to know each other forever. And, no matter what prompts the attraction, personality will triumph. The only objective is to provide pleasure sought by one with an idea. Just a theory. Now, tell me what to do to create your happiness. Just use hints. If I am the one for you, you will see me trying to transform these desires into your reality. If I were psychic I would try to give you everything you really wanted deep inside your subconscious mind. And you, you would do the same. Can I really love you? Why do you love me? These questions are no longer answered by words because motions by each individual are seen. And, when all motions agree, the statement, I love you, now means nothing less than, "I love you,"! I want to love you, and, I want you to love me, too.

There are several things that I want in a woman, but mostly, I want someone that is beautiful inside, has control of her feelings and is able to communicate them. I want a woman who is nurturing aaaand, I don't want any woman that thinks she's too good to be poor. I want one who is willing to accept me for me... Less Materials! No matter what position she is currently in, I want someone who has extreme potential. I need a woman that accepts me and my goals!

I'm not a chaser, so don't expect that. I look past a lot of girls for a lot of reasons, as I'm sure many do me. But, I hope that someone really nice doesn't make the mistake of passing me by. If you put your profile up because your man isn't giving you enough attention, KEEP GOING!

I believe that the purpose for relationships is not only to have fun, but to figure things out together. I'm protective, analytical, conversational, humorous, however, I have a very serious side. My match is something special. Although everyone has their flaws, she is one of a kind. I'm very interested in a business mind; someone who is energetic. She loves to try new things, and has a handle on moral aspects of life. Her beauty is matched by her personality. To her, a relationship is to be had with one and only one individual, her and her man, there are no outside distractions in our relationship. I'm hoping to find her soon for she is one of a kind. It seems that trying to find a match is impossible. When does one find what he is seeking and match what is sought?

More than anything I'm loyal, and I can accept nothing less. I have plenty of time to get to know my best friend for life. If you have time to get to know someone, exclusively, for who they are...

I'm really laid back and although serious about progression, I'm more carefree and more open-minded than all of this looks. To me this a filter system. I trust that if you're playing a game with another guy, looking for sex, only, not trust worthy, materialistic, flaky, stuck up, or closed minded, all of this will scare you.

I love smart, funny, sexy, thick women, and although color is not an issue to me, if it is in your family, or your mind, you probably shouldn't still be here.

If there is one thing I'm sure of, it's that the girl for me will be the perfect friend from the start... IJS!
