am new to this site and hope that is ok since...umm... surprise...I am not black, ha! I am however only interested in Black men-actually I find that I am mostly drawn to Tall, Bald, Black men. Am not a paid member. I seek a long-term, monogamous relationship.
lived in AZ since 1984. Was a Mktg./ Adv Dir. at a resort for a few years then for nearly 20 yrs I was a provider of Hypnotic and Magical Entertainment, which I loved. Those parts of my life are behind me, I am now in a transitional period after having been fulltime caretaker for my elderly mom who passed away. Hopefully I can soon figure out what to do when I grow up

Observing my family of origin influenced me dramatically to reach higher and to search deeper to not settle for that type of
now here come what I view as the worst parts about me... I am currently plus-sized (think Oprah size etc.) and I have smoked on and off most of my life.

I believe that with the support of a good partner all things are possible!
