I'm at a point in my life where I'm hoping to connect with someone on a deep level. Someone I can laugh with, cry with. A person with whom I can communicate without uttering a single word. I consider myself a very affectionate person. I love intimacy. I think some people get intimacy and sex confused. People who can decipher the difference will know what I'm trying to communicate here. That's what I'm hoping to find. I am not about to come on this site and paint myself to be the exact thing you're missing. I am definitely a work in progress. A year ago I was leading a totally different lifestyle. I do believe, however, that I had a spiritual awakening and it changed my priorities, goals and outlook on life. Things that "normal" people take for granted are probably a big deal for me. I appreciate where I'm at in my life today and I like to try my best to learn from everyone and everything. I don't take anything or anyone for granted anymore. I think I'm kind of hoping to meet someone who can sense my potential and have enough patience with me and support for me and enough perseverance to the point that we can grow into something together that is truly amazing. I don't want to be misconstrued though. I am independent. I have my own place. A job. Take a class. I'm goal oriented. Always have been. Now it's just that my method of achieving my goals are centered on the correct side of the law, if you will. Lol. I'm not about to come on this site selling myself as the best thing since sliced bread. I can only offer who I am as a man TODAY. Where I am trying to go as a man TODAY. And the man I am working on trying to be. This most definitely will sound cliché, but I truly am a diamond in the rough. I feel I just need to be polished. I need someone to show me things I may have never seen. Teach me some things I don't know. We can learn from each other. Compliment our differences. Where are you?
