Meet JamesMore about JamesContact InformationSentence Information

I’m James. I hope who’s reading this is well in all areas of your life imaginable. I’ve been preparing for this moment, this very moment to say that everything has its time, place, space, spot, point to be revealed. With that being said, allow me to say life is beautiful when we begin to understand that all in life has purpose and a valuable meaning… Risk is essential to happiness in my opinion albeit I’m a bit nervous about this entire process. I’m approaching it with an open heart and open mind and a great deal of enthusiasm, as a man who is down to earth, easygoing, charismatic and full of life with a great sense of humor… I only hope that the woman or women who respond to me possess these same qualities… I seek someone who can stimulate me mentally and will allow me to do so in return…
My favorite color is red, I love different genres of music, in my spare time I love to work out, play basketball, and play chess… My institutional email is GTL
