My self-summary
I am a hard working Detroit native who has recently moved back to the city. I work as a development consultant. I would like to find a woman who appreciates the arts, literature and music. If you are not an NPR listener or rush home to catch American Idol or some other banal type of entertainment, we prolly will not work out. I like good beer and straight whiskey, so if you drink whatever is the latest or hottest cocktail, we prolly won't work out. I am a writer by avocation, so I love neologisms, instead of probably I always type prolly, instead of through I always type thru. These are just examples I can think of right now. So if you have a smarmy need to correct folk's grammar or spelling, we prolly will not work out. I am a race-man, which is different from a racist, so if you do not know the difference, we prolly will not work out. I prefer college educated women with an active intellectual life. If none of this repulses you, and you like short, thick guys, send me a message!

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
