I would like to thank you in advance for visiting my profile. You could have been anywhere else in the world, but you are here with me. One of the lessons that can be learned from this pandemic is that human connection matters. And I genuinely care about human connection, and like getting to know someone.

So I’m looking for a friend. Something that is meaningful. Something that enhance my life and our connection. Someone who thinks progressively. A friend was interested in positive things. A friend wants me to win. A friend who will breathe encouragement in me, in my plans, and in my ideas. Because it’s the kind of friends that I am.

I’m not where I want to be in life. Virtually every aspect of my life is regulated and monitored by the system. But I understand my responsibility for being in my predicament and all it entails. However, I don’t know if there is any load that is as heavy as desiring to do what one is naturally capable of doing, yet is restraint from doing so by unnatural means. In that instance, I can truly say that I know why the caged bird sings.

Spending time in a cell provides me with a solitude that is foreign. Because even though a part of me is quiet and distant, the other half of me is social. I was a sociable person who was regularly busy with family, girlfriends, and comrades. This newfound solitude caused me to face myself and consciously begin my lifelong process of introspection. And when I’m a free man again, I’m gonna put what I learned into action.

Here is the profile of my desired friend: She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go for it. She likes her friend to be a man but still be able to show his emotions. Balance is important to her; she works hard enough, but her job doesn’t consume all her energy. She enjoys the nice things in life, but is also spiritual and doesn’t get fully caught up in the quest for material goods. She wants a man in her life but doesn’t need one. She knows that she and her man will be worth more together than apart. She enjoys the simple things in life but can also be spontaneous. She likes to travel to far-off places, relax on sandy beaches under a hot sun, and then cool off in the sea, but she also likes the hustle and bustle of a busy city. This contrast and balance are part of her character.

She is centered in content, but being with people that she cares about is important to her. She is kind and considerate, and would like to be her naturally caring self with people who have earned her trust. She wants a friend who understands her. One she doesn’t need to tell what she wants, but who just knows. A friend who can be the closest person to her, to help her make decisions, and to always be there and offer her his strength when she needs it. She doesn’t expect to find him right away, but she’ll know when she does.
