    Missing Home

    I moved to VA 4 years ago. And yes I do understand that it can be a very lonely place. I miss my family in Lousisana. It can be diffcult to branch out and make new friends. I can't wait to move back home or atleast closer to my family.

    My ex-wife's family was from here. So when I got out of the Marine Corps we moved here so that she would be happy. Now I have a good job here, and my kids, so I'm not leaving soon.

    Virginia Is For Lovers

    Virginia is my homeland. I'm a Native-from all the way back--before Virginia was Virginia. My people are James River people. It is gorgeous country--from ocean shores, to caverns, to verdant plains, to mountains. There are things about Virginia that I am not proud of. It is the...

    What Having This Account Is About For Me

    I am isolated in S.E. Va and looking for some new experiences. I am shy and lonely -- a dangerous combination that doesn't allow for much release. So if someone has a suggestion I'm probably down. Break this ice.
