I'm an accomplished, adventurous, mature but fit-and-"well-preserved" (LOL) New Orleans man with a younger black lover who lives in Barbados in the Caribbean. I am looking to build a bond with an intelligent, good-hearted younger black gay or bi man here in New Orleans (or even a straight man, if one should be interested) who will understand both what I have to offer a buddy and the limitations of also being involved with a person who falls into the category of "distant lover." I am open to friendship, or to intimacy, or (best of all) to both. I'm not looking for quick, meaningless sex, and I am a very loyal and supportive friend. I have been a major-newspaper film critic, a teacher in the Caribbean and New Orlenas, and I have a gallery showing West Indian paintings; I'm also a playwright currently trying to get some of my works staged, and a guy who loves to travel whenever possible. I can talk about more personal particulars if you ask, or if you'd care to chat. Hope there's a cool dude out there who will respond to this posting. Thanks for reading it!
