My name is Alvin. Born and raised in Texas and moved to Chicago about two years ago. The city is great, and living here has been, so far, an adventure to say the least. I would say I'm very shy when it comes to meeting new people. It's very strange that I work in a customer service atmosphere, yet when I try to meet someone or find them attractive, I literally choke up. Not that I'm a social outcast or anything, it's just awkward for me. I can't just go up to you and say "Hey, I like you!" I enjoy hanging out with friends and go out to various restaurants, clubs, and bars, but meeting someone there is not my style. Unless we happen to dance throughout the night. I'm a big music head and I like to dance. Not saying I dance well, but I won't be holding up the wall in a club or anything. Anyway... "Hopeless" romantic, is me thinking that someday we'll meet while grocery shopping, standing in line for coffee, sitting at the bookstore, or bumping into you on the train. You can tell that hasn't worked since I'm still single. So I'm hoping this on-line thing might work. I've seen You've Got Mail, it could happen right? Part of me thinks that I've passed you sometime before, that we've met, just never at the right time. I guess I'm trying this in hopes that you'll see my profile, maybe want to grab some coffee sometime, and want to get to know someone new. Thanks.
