Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I had written a long, exhausting summarial-drivel of a biography
some-four-odd years ago on this page, but frankly, that'll not
My name's Joseph and I'm a transplant from Austin; Austinite born
and raised, catch-the 1M down to the drag and end the night with an
old Nirvana record wafting the aroma of Lonestar and
I left Austin to see the suburban side of things; and it isn't so
bad. Being existential has its own problems and the suburbs are a
beautiful place to get your head on straight. It's good in a way to
get a way from the pizazz of being an inner-city boy, but life

Currently I work as a nanny, 2 year old girl and two 7 year old
roudy boys. That'll teach ya there's more to yourself in a hot
I'm on here because I don't know anyone here in Grand
Prarie/Dallas, and I'd like to make some friends.
Ultimately if things go well, I'd like to see about finding a
special girl to give my all to.
I'm a writer but that's espousement in sweeping sardony at life's
apparent need to throw one trial after another (hah! With hands to
the sky in smiling resignation), I'm a dancer in that I've got
rhythym (a rare quality or a lack of confidence? The world may
never know) and I'm ultimately thoughtful.
I am at the point in life to make friends for life, and leaving my
past to the past, I know how strong I am and I am a survivor.
Ultimately I talk with my hands, give myself to laughter loud
enough to turn eyes, and believe in la dolcha vita. As the
Sicilians raise their toasts as I, a glass of wine to "Cent

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Management.. When the shit hits the fan I am usually the dude
giving people directions or dealing with said situation first. I
believe in the quote "power is best in the hands of those who do
not seek it" or however that goes, anyway.
Listening. I have been told I am a superb listener and that I come
from a time when conversations were TWO way streets. I genuinely
listen where others pretend and I seek to fulfill and satisfy in

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to dress nicely, guess that might be something; I walk with
my head up and that's something I found a rarity. Don't really have
the ability to answer this, it's up to the other person.

•6. Giving yourself to a good laugh.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

I try to focus on what I am doing when I am doing it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and About! Or not? There's a time to throw the backpack on and
hit the street I guess. You just gotta go. Then the're times when

Sometimes I'll even go camping! It's all up to the balance of
