I have old fashion values, yet in tune to where I am today. I am well-rounded and well-educated. I am a man who strives for spiritual perfection in every aspect of life, yet aware that I am not perfect, but continues strive. I am financially secured. I love wholeheartedly and unconditionally. I am very humble and pray to find a silver-lining when my life seems a little cloudy. I am a strong man in control of my life and well being who treats his lady with respected and as my queen; so this is something I demand of myself. I'm a hopeless romantic; yet waiting on my lady to grace me with her presence. I am a BELIEVER! I LOVE THE LORD; without Him I am?????. I believe in education and promote, encourage, and empower our youth to strive for excellence. I've realized tomorrow is not promised! I live each day as if it were my last. I'm a happy black male.
On a more direct personal level, I am a single man looking for a long-term relationship with an interesting single woman desiring a solid relationship with a man who's firm but fair partner. I am a calm, self-controlled, loving but firm dominant man, and much more. I want someone who's my best friend, lover, partner, and soul-mate. I'm willing to wait as long as it takes to find her. I am a not a toy or a cyber playmate, I am a real person with real feelings and emotions and you should be too.
My friends will say I am an intelligent man, perhaps even a modern-day Renaissance Man, with both a sharp mind and wit; a man of honor, integrity, humor and loyalty. I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and discovering new things. I once read a quote that read like this: "I complained I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet". Words to live by! I like to keep fit, both mind and body. I enjoy several genres of literature and "nearly" all genres of music. I enjoy good humor, and love to make others laugh as much as I enjoy laughing (and yes, often at myself). I'm a man of many and varied interests and talents, all of which to share. In addition, I'm energetic yet laid-back, independent, ambitious, thoughtful, sincere, funny, loyal, intelligent, artistic, generous, and daring. I want someone who would give her all in a relationship.
In addition to the above, honesty really matters. I believe that should be the basis for any kind of healthy, productive relationship. If you're into head games; stop reading at this point, there are plenty of fake people on Blackplante who will appreciate you a lot more than I ever will. Intelligence and a sense of humor are essentials. Being educated is always a positive thing, but life experience also counts. I'd rather hang out with someone who is street smart than someone with five degrees who thinks they're a know-it-all and doesn't! An absolute requirement is that you have to be able to make me laugh every now and then. I on the other hand will do the same. Integrity, class, motivation and a sense of adventure and direction are also important. Having a conscience is a good thing too ;-). It helps if you're attractive (inside or out), but things like hair, eye and the skin of a person skin color, to include weight are really inconsequential.
