Hi, I’m Doctor Lonely Face. I’m a Scorpio from Chicago. I currently live in a “high security-gated community” that doesn’t allow pets. Are you looking for someone interesting and different? You can stop looking – you found me.

Here’s the deal: being in prison sucks. I miss the normal social interactions that aren’t available in prison. I’m looking to make connections out there in the real world. I’m up for anything. We can be serious or we can be silly. We can talk about whatever you’d like. I’m trapped in a people’s zoo. I gotta get out of this place. I’m working on that. Right now.

Some stuff about me: I’m reserved with a wild side. I’m pretty good with my hands. I’m not afraid to get dirty. I like the outdoors, hiking, biking and camping. I’ve been to Canada and Ireland. I want to do some more traveling. I’d like to get a motorcycle. I love animals and consider myself a dog person. Surprisingly, I have owned on a cat. There are some cute little ground squirrels here that eat peanuts right out of my hand.

I like rock music, but I also enjoy Dua Lipa (Electricity, Homesick). I’m a science nerd. I enjoy science fiction, art (impressionism) and natural history. I’m into the stock market. I plan to trade stocks online when I get out. I have very eclectic interests. I want to complete my college degree.

I like to work out and eat right. I’m an epicurean. I love hot/spicy food. I want to take some culinary classes. I also plan to grow my own organic vegetables.

I am not a ninja or anything like that anymore, but I still have a few kung-fu kitten moves.
“Do you know karate? Yup. Oh my god… Did we just become best friends? Yup. Do you want to go do karate in the yard? Yup!”

So my new friend, why don’t you send me an email or write me a letter? Use the tab for contact information. I would love to hear from you.

Take care of yourself.
Your friend,
