I'm a broadcaster whose moved around quite a bit, though I've been here for 9 years now. I was on an involuntary break from the business, but finally back on the air during weekends. I have a management slot in public housing during the week. I'll make time for dating IF I can find someone who is a good fit for me. I'm completely independent. I don't need a woman who waits on me hand and foot. I can get off my butt and get my own Crystal Light. I wash my own clothes and dishes. I make my own meals. Yet, I still set aside time to give my senior cat his nightly heart medicine AND get to the gym 3x per week. I need a friend, advocate, and lover...NOT a maid. I'm sure that appeals to your intellectual side. How about your emotional side? I protect the families of geese and other non-human BEINGS who make their home in my backyard. I’m a favorite uncle to my niece and nephews. I'm an animal advocate and vegetarian. I support the right of all sentient beings to live in peace and safety; free of harassment and attack. Can you handle such a concept? I despise hunters, and anyone else for that matter, who enjoys killing for their own pleasure. I'm not a dominionist. I have no need to control or overpower anyone to project an image of manhood. You'll see it in me IF you know where to look. I need to be with a compassionate woman who has idealism in her heart and realism in her mind. I exercise and stay healthy; it's the cheapest form of health insurance you can get in today's world. I have no illusions about the dating world; I know exactly what I’m up against. Dating is competitive, unpredictable, and treacherous. Relationships should not be. I've come to realize that true love is not a RIGHT. It's a GIFT and a PRIVILEGE. I know now I must earn the interest of the woman I want. That means I must grow beyond my comfort zone. I know it will take a special woman to look past the fact that I'm only 5'7”. Are you special? Are you ready to show me?
