I am down to earth and I love people who are real. Someone that can laugh is very important as I love to laugh and have a good time. I like men that are confident and assertive but honesty is also extremely important. I am open to all ethnicities. I can be goofy at times but that usually causes others around me to laugh with me (or at me lol). I love to travel and I love to read. I enjoy bowling, going to arcades, taking walks, going to lounges, the movies, the ballet, theater, parks,comedy clubs, long drives and a lot more that I can't think of right now so please ask me. I like most types of music. Hip-hop, r and b and reggae are among my favorites. Pretty much the only music I don't like is country and heavy metal.I am on here because I feel that finding that special someone is so hard when you pass the age of going out to clubs and bars all the time with single friends. I am not looking for a pen pal. I am interested in friendship and hopefully something more. To me the best way of judging compatability is to meet someone in person. So my preference is to exchange a couple of emails to see the ease of the conversation and then meet up for a drink, coffee or a meal. This way neither one of us wastes our time. Every new experience teaches you something. Please have a picture and preferably more than one. And that means one of your actual face, that you can see. It is only fair. Lol. And have more to say than hi, and I'll tell you later. Once the weather gets really nice I enjoy biking outdoors.
