Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy, rebel flags, etc. you were basically told to stay with your own kind. The older I've become, I've diversified my friends and dating scene. I realized a while back that I lived my life inside of a box, so much I needed to learn about myself, other cultures and ethnicities and its been a wonderful journey. I lived my life inside a black/white television, then HD Color came in and I was like, DAMN, look-a-here, look at how beautiful this is. As I tell folks now, I'm glad my crayola box didn't just have one crayon in it or I would have painted some boring azz pics.
This on-line thing is rather difficult. It feels like a human eBay site. I totally prefer to meet in person because you can pick up on body language, smile, switch conversations, etc. because on-line gives you a chance to actually think about what you want to say.
