I spend a lot of time thinking about
What needs are not being met in a neighborhood. For example, East
Baltimore is in desperate need of a beer garden.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll get back to you on this one...
You should message me if
You're in great shape, your passport is all stamped up, you are
mature when it counts and silly when it doesn't, keeping your word
is central to who you are, and your message isn't a form letter you
send to all the of the girls on this website.
