My self-summary
I'm awesome & awe inspiring. I'm very whimsical and prone to flights of fancy.

I'm pretty sarcastic too.

I love words. I love black people. I love music, art, and fashion.

Black girls rock.

Okcupid is all about sorting. I'm not looking for 30 girls to date. I'm looking for one to get to know. So I'm not mad if you don't respond to me (but best believe if I write you I expect you'd 100% want to write back. You should!!) But at the end of the day women choose men, men can just put their best foot forward.

And if you choose me, believe that's what you'll be getting (left foot forward. That's my best foot after all).

Juxtapositions and dichotomies
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing. Hanging out with good people. Talking shit, swallowing spit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
They might be impressed with you, but I'm not.

That being said I'm not going to spend too much energy reaching out. I'll say a few words, maybe they'll be clever and catch your attention. Perhaps not. Either way I shall be fine.
You should message me if
You are energetic and interesting and you can challenge me. You're smart, creative, and I can learn from you.

If you're a contradiction. If you're engaging. If you're multi-layered.

If you're tired of the status quo. And you wanna get down with something amazing. Hit me up.

Or if you wanna build something on that:

"If you don't worry bout where I been or who I saw or what club I went to with my homies, baby don't worry you know that you got me."
