I like this joke because I identify with the man in the wheelchair. No, I'm not quadriplegic, but I do think that most women I meet are not patient enough to identify my real talents. And yes, my talents extend beyond the sexual. I work hard at being a good person, I know how to talk to people, I understand the value of treating people the way I'd like to be treated. I'm committed to personal growth. Children, dogs and mothers like me, I refuse to take myself seriously and I'm not shy about hard work. If I know you really need it, I'll give you the shirt off of my back. I'm not afraid to operate outside of my comfort zone. I'm fifty-two years old, five foot six, One-hundred and seventy well-muscled pounds, a good lover, happy in my career, no children, I love to read, learn new things, and I workout six days week. I like helping people, adventure, avoiding trouble, sleep, conspiracy theories, testing limits, and philosophizing. So, if I have all that going for myself, why am I on ok cupid? . Because I think it's wise to pursue all paths to one's hearts desires.
What is my heart's desire? Simple, a Black woman who will love me like I will love and adore her. I want her to be healthy, physically fit, sane, spiritual, attractive (to me), in love with her people and herself, and have the capacity to be a great mother. In essence, someone priceless.
I am open to other women of color, but it has been my experience that the daughters of Africa are most likely to understand the methods to my madness. While they do not always agree, they almost always understand. And I think that level of understanding is crucial to the love that I would like to build with her. Are you still reading? I admire your patience. The love I am looking for is not just to make me feel good, although that is a wonderful side benefit. The love that I'm looking for is a cornerstone of the life that I would like to build with her. This love will sustain the environment that we will raise our children in to become productive members of society. This love will empower us to build and support our community. This love will comfort and amuse us in our old age.
If you think that you might like to conversate (yes, I know it's not a word but I just like saying it), drink a Corona, see a movie, eat dinner, see an Off-Broadway play, take a road trip, lick an ice cream cone, wander around a museum, listen to some jazz, R& B or intelligent hip-hop, go to church, or take a walk with a cute single African-American, professional, athletic, healthy and relatively sane man, please write to me. I would love to hear from you.
