Male , 56-60

I'm a gregarious Midwesterner with a bachelor's and a JD. I've practiced law solo 6 years, driven a cab for 12, worked as an industrial and office temp, for the past several years making a living trading stocks (that's right, the stock market, not commodity futures). I like intelligent friends, educated, literate and curious who are not looking for someone to unload on. Unloading is not to be confused with sharing experiences.
