I am looking for an easy going lady who takes things as they come. My family came up through poverty and put me through a top college. I am very proud that I was able to leave a upbringing or neighborhood where many have failed. It has made me a tough and thick skinned man. I am also very empathetic to the tribulations of other. I find my greatest happiness is in helping a friend no matter how minor. I am not necessarily out going but I can talk your ear off concerning many topics (politics, movies, music...). I love all types of music including classic rock and hiphop and r&b even though it's basically pop nowadays. My favorite artist is Radiohead. I enjoy Bon Iver, Eminem and some old school hip hop. I prefer some of the newer bands like Arcade Fire and Silversun Pickups.
