ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Update February 2014:

I am currently dating, but I'm totally open to establishing new friendships.

-------------------------------------------
Update Mid-May 2013:

I have to be honest... I'm pretty disenchanted with the dating scene in this city, at present. For the time being, I'll leave it up to you

ladies to reach out first. If I'm interested, I'll reach back... You have my word ;-)

Be Well
--------------------------------------------


Let's try this again ;-)

Although I was born in NOLA, as were the majority of my family members, I was raised in SOCAL. . . Acronyms, right? ;-)

At any rate, I've been "back home" for roughly three years. It has been a real journey becoming reacquainted with my roots and establishing a professional base. . .

Now, on to real business: I'm the absolute best at being me . . . for better or for worse ;-) That being said, I can only imagine my life being enhanced by meeting a lady who has come to know, love and respect herself. Being a good kisser wouldn't hurt either!

I won't get into monotonous details about what it is that I'm looking for. I am certain that she and I will both know once we become acquainted with one another. Women, who exhibit a nice balance of self-confidence and selflessness, are very attractive to me. On the other hand, a little spontaneity is cool when it comes to having a good time.

After experiencing some communication "hiccups," here are a few sidebars I feel the need to express: After allowing myself to slip, I've spent the better part of last year getting my tail back into reasonably good physical condition. My match doesn't have to be a figure competitor, by any means (I'm certainly not ;-), but a reasonably healthy and fit lifestyle is preferable. Please take this note to heart...

Although 'winks' ...and "Hi," ...and "Wassup?" are extremely flattering, I'm not likely to respond to them. Part of my criteria for a match is someone who is fearless in matters of communication. If you're interested, just go ahead and leave a message. I'll do the same!

Since this is a dating site, it should be understood that attraction and first impressions matter A LOT. I value a decent command of the English language, as well as someone who has the confidence to show themselves. To be clear, if you have no pic or cannot compose a grammatically correct email, I'm not likely to respond. I hope you understand ;-)
