Hello ladies. Thank you for stopping by to view my profile. It is a bit long but I figured I'd be better to be complete leaving less room for ambiguity. I'm looking forward to hearing from those who are like minded & interested. I try to respond to all emails whether there's an interest or not. I figure if someone is going to take the time to write the least I can do is respond when time permits.
Currently residing in LA with shared time in NY, NY...I'm a 6`3, Tsalagi Muur with an athletic build. I live a very balanced holistic lifestyle. I don't smoke, drink nor do drugs. I am very caring, honest, selfless and non-judgmental person. I work out 3-5 times a week, so I`m in pretty good shape & have a strong appreciation for those who do the same. I am a very busy young professional, but I`m willing to make time for those who make time for me.
In my spare time I like to write, do anything outdoors. I love long walks/days on the beach. I play spades, chess, billiards and am an avid reader. I`m also a sports fanatic. Big surprise, right ladies? ;-)
I enjoy fine dining but I also love to cook, especially breakfast-brunch. My dinner skills are adequate, too, though. Additionally, I enjoy cuddling up to a nice movie or going out with that special someone. I rarely go to nightclubs in NY. I guess the club scene got old for me or I got too old for the club scene. Plus, it seems like women are more receptive at places other than clubs. Clubs force men to be very aggressive, and I'm pretty laid back, so it's not really my scene. I have a very huge sense of humor & enjoy making people laugh. I can be very sarcastic at times...but I usually wait until I know someone pretty well before I bring it out.
I don`t have a wife or girlfriend (and would be foul for posting a personals ad if I did). As for my reasons for an ad...I figure I might be able to meet someone I can connect with and or network. While I`d like to find someone who I can eventually settle down with, I believe people have to hang out for a bit and really get to know each other before getting into a committed relationship.
Sometimes it will happen and sometimes it won`t...for various reasons. One thing I've learned is not to force things...that never works. As for my preference in women: I prefer women with great energy who keep themselves in excellent shape. I require mental as well as physical stimulation as I am not the avg. run of the mill Joe. Simply put I am a Muur & we culturally give and expect more than mediocrity. Excellent hygiene inside (mind and spirit) and out (body) is a must! I'm a fool for pretty eyes, long natural hair curly or straight and a beautiful smile! I have & will continue to date without color lines until I find that special someone or she finds me. I like women who have a good sense of humor, intelligence, moral values, integrity, ambition, goals, and those who are self reliant. Basically I want someone who wants something out of life and is not afraid to go get it.
Note: If you don`t live anywhere near the New York or LA / OC, CA areas & are not open to coming to visit, then why bother? No offense, but you can only be pen-pals for so long. Along those lines, if you like to send e-mails and instant messages for a month before talking on the phone, I'm not the one for you. That gets real old, real fast. Writing this long ad is enough typing for me. ;-) Please under NO circumstance lie about your appearance. Just in case we meet up, there shouldn't be any unwelcome surprises. I look like my pics & I expect that you will also. If we click, then maybe we can meet up for tea or something like that and see if there's a connection.
In closing have I dated women who were not within my preferences?...Yes. The problem with that is that it usually doesn't go anywhere and I'd at least like for there to be a long-term option. But as they say, "You never know..."
Hotep! Salaam! Shalom! Shalom!
