Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an interesting individual who is open-minded and is
comfortable being with any sane person. I enjoy being outdoors when
the weather is nice. I appreciate attending festivals, movies,
plays or anything engaging. I like talking about a variety of
subjects from "politricks" to food. I have a great sense of humor
and I look forward to meeting different types of people. I can be
comfortable with others or by myself.
I also love to travel and have been to Central and South America,
the Caribbean, West and now most recently South Africa. Stateside,
I've been to about 10 states in the US and would love to visit all
before leaving the planet.
I am Creative, Funny, and Laid Back
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a social worker. I provide counseling and concrete services
for children and families. Although the work is challenging I enjoy
it and it gives me a sense of purpose. Social Work teaches me
something new everyday about myself and the human experience.
There's never a dull moment, a dry eye or a day without laughter. I
actually believe that if you are truly living a balanced life in
which you are inspired by and which impacts others then you are a
"practicing social worker".
As I have matured as an only child I have learned to appreciate my
parents. I actually don't mind chilling with them. (Don't start
tripping I got my own place.) Maturity has taught me to appreciate
the wealth of experience that my parents or the elders in community
has to offer. I guess in a way I'm that young brotha with an Ole
Soul, can you dig.
I recently rediscovered exercise. I would like to get into
how about just consistently exercise. Being the new 20+ feels
wonderful. I am at the cusp of being young and old school all at
once. I am really inspired by folks who are older and are in great
shape mentally, physically and spiritually. I am a late bloomer but
I'm finally at peace with this reality. I feel great about myself
although I can be my worst critic. I enjoy being around others that
value growth as well.
I'm generally open-minded and enjoy learning and trying something
at least once. If it's nice do it more than twice....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at being a sounding board for ideas.
I can be assertive when I need to be.
I enjoy being creative and spontaneous.
I can also plan things or just "chicken wing it" when
I love networking and can easily fit in most environments.
I love learning how to cook new dishes. I'm the master of fixing up
a lil sumtin' sumtin...
I have a healthy sense of humor and I can be sarcastic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My easy going nature. The ability to connect and just being
I can make people laugh and think all at the same time. I'm the

The six things I could never do without

Healthy: mind, body and spirit

I like someone who can hold a good conversation, is assertive, and
has ambition. Takes care of themselves physically, emotionally and
spiritually. I like a woman who can go from tomboy to vixen with
rhythm and ease. Intelligent not arrogant, grounded yet classy
queen with a wicked sense of humor. I at least strive to possess
most of these qualities of course in the male version. Nobody is
perfect so no matter what just be yourself baby. The truth comes
out when it's supposed to.
