I didn't change this profile in a year or two, so I decided to update it. I grow and change and so do my likes and dislikes. My name is Ralph, I came to Gainesville from Poland 3 years ago to do my law graduate program but decided to stay. I might not love this town and what I get every day, but this is home now. I made some excellent friends here. I've spent my whole life in a wheelchair but it was never an issue for me. What counts is that I have full control of my body- but people for some reason make it a big deal for them and that is a bit annoying. I'm optymistic, mostly content with who I am, I'm all over town and hit the bars often. I have a crazy sense of humor that sometimes is too much for people expecting this deep reflective creature when they meet me, that I become only on my bad days. I can be silly, but make no mistake, only by choice. I had my first business at the age of 21.Don't judge me by what I say to kill time in the chats.Trust to me is the most important thing a man could give. I warm up to new people slowly, usually am very nervous covering it up with humor. I try to be caring and understanding, I fall for guys quickly. I hate boredom, and I appreciate a sense of adventure, fun and humor. I will give anyone my attention and try to include them in my life. I make friends quickly. But if people I barely know dissapoint me I rarely give them a second chance. Giving in is a sign of weaknes. It's not that you have to fit it to my expectations.
But I expect honesty and that you are who you say you are. Otherwise, as I want to stay away from people wanting to mess me up and hurt me I will distance myself from them quickly. I need to protect my peace of mind, my harmony and as tacky as it sounds- heart. I've made bad judgements and said things I regret but I would never intentionally hurt anyone. I try to fullfill my obligations and I respond well to reliable, caring people.
I don't think young age is a good excuse for being stupid. People should respect themselves and each other . I don't like being brushed aside, feeling irrelevant and a lone. My chair can make me feel invisible in clubs at times. I like a good conversation, sitting around without a word doesn't work for me. I'm often shy at first I need to be brought out. Intimacy for me takes long time to develop. Be who you are, show your true colors and don't think I want you to be something you're not. I love meeting new people, I love coffee, I don't like... the flipside of above: inconsiderate people who care only about their own wellbeing, with no backbone, drive or motivation. I'm at UC mostly wednesdays. I might not fully know what I want but I'm willing to make an effort. Be somewhat close to my age which means your 20's/early 30's. I find relating to young undergrads and older guys harder. Say hi to me on AIM/Yahoo/Gayromeo:Ralphgsv
We might not hit it off, but we can also become good friends. I've ben called stubborn. I think I'm driven and independent. Some are dissapointed because I don't really fit their vision of what I should be... Just be open minded and say hi :)
