    Well I guess I wouldn’t fall into any of these maybe the closest to me is intellectual. O well maybe that’s why I’m still single and most black women don’t want to have anything to do with me. They usually say I’m to nice or I’m not exciting or black enough. It’s their loss I guess at least I know for a fact that I don’t have any children.
