The past five years of my life have been an unhappy lot. They started out well enough. I was living in a small town up in Minnesota managing small business, my 'dream job' if you will. I was in the process of starting up a family and things were going exceeding well. A series of events then unfolded that have left me find in a hard position both emotionally and financially. As a result I have spent the last two years avoiding most contact with others, save that which was required of me through working.
I ended up making an account on here after a long time friend from high-school has had great success here. I am less here on a quest for a mate, and more on here just to pretend that I haven't given up completely on this aspects of my life (as depressing of a person that makes me out to be). It is easy, affords space, and isn't pressing on my time.
In a recent attempt to work further improving my life, I have moved to Duluth from North Florida. I had friends and family down in that area, but the potential for growth is very small. Ever since managing the card shop in Minnesota I've been working towards practical self-employment. North Florida is not the place for that. I also figured a more drastic change in scenery would do me good.
