I grew up in Philly and have values consistent with having lived in a diverse, complex, urban area. I am tolerant & accepting of people. People like to talk with me because I am open, not prejudiced, or biased, and am a good listener. I don't have to be the center of attention. I am a person that believes that you can accomplish anything that you put your mind to, within reason. I do believe that success takes hard work, persistance, ability, and devotion. I want to become involved with someone who is serious, yet carefree and fun; someone who is committed to his life's goals, yet really able to relax and have fun. I want to be involved with someone who does not play games, and who is authentic, real, and believes in the power of relationships.The kind of person that I am looking for would have to be someone who likes to do a variety of things - including being up on what's going on in the world, is a hard worker, has a good personality, someone who loves to travel, and who enjoys a good conversation, and someone who you can trust and who's honest.
