Hello to all of the beautiful women who view my profile. Let me thank you in advance for taking the time to find out about me. I'm updating my profile since the last one was put up without much thought. With that said, where do I begin? Hmmm? I have been off and on Black Singles for a while now. I have met some women on here that were and are great people. I have nothing negative to say regarding my dating experiences on this service. But now, I'm not looking for casual dating or friendship. I understand that's where you need to begin a relationship, but I'm looking for my wife, best friend, lover, confidant, business partner, and trusted ally. I want that woman that I can't live without. I'm looking for someone who is well rounded enough to enjoy a game of pool while having a couple of drinks, or a formal night out along with dancing the night away. Or maybe a quick weekend or overnight getaway. shopping for rare finds, or staying at home and cuddling on the sofa watching old movies, just enjoying each other's company. I'm an open minded person so that's always a plus to keep things fresh. I have been blessed enough to have not smoked for almost two years now, and would desire someone who is a non-smoker, or at least is trying to quit. I'm a large man, but I'm working hard on getting my weight down to a healthy size. No offense, but that's my goal for myself. I would hope that my potential mate would understand the benefits of being healthy as well.
