About Me

I am an incomplete paraplegic, due to Guillain-Barre‚ Syndrome at age 7.

I need either crutches and leg braces or a wheelchair to get around.

I do not smoke, I am drug and disease free and I intend to stay that way.

I am looking for a strong platonic friendship first, and am open to more if the right person who truly loves me comes along.

I am not looking for a "one night stand", but someone who can be a lifelong friend. I am not looking for sex, but if a friendship of a more romantic nature develops then I am open to it. But I believe in a totally platonic relationship until marriage, as taught in the Holy Bible.

I am looking for someone who can love me and accept me for who I am. I have learned to accept my disability, and I do not mind if someone is attracted to me for my disabilities... but I hope it is for more and that I am accepted as a total person.

I have Asperger's Syndrome which is a very high functioning form of Autism, that is quite different than "Classic Autism", but is still on the Autism Spectrum.

I am on disability, and have not worked for many years. So I have all the time in the world, but not much in the way of income.

I am willing to relocate for the right person, who will love me and will treat me right.

I have started using a power chair due to osteoarthritis from years of use of crutches and leg braces.

If you are interested, please feel free to email me and we can get to know each other better... and who knows what will happen.

What I look for in a friend is someone who is open, honest, candid, intelligent, and has a good sense of humor. Those requirements mean more than anything. It is what I give, and it is what I would like in return.

I am a very conservative person in general, and I am also a person of great faith (I am of Jewish Heritage, and I was raised a Roman Catholic...I have had both my Bar Mitzvah and my Confirmation, and I am very devout in both traditions of my faith... my family turned to the Roman Catholic Church to escape the Anti-Semitism of pre-WW2 Europe, but my Jewish Heritage has always remained strong my entire life), but I do not "force" it on anyone.

I am ethnically Irish-Scottish-Polish-Jewish-American.

I will reply to anyone and everyone who writes me.

G-d Bless and Shalom.


My Public Prayers

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I will be 42 in July of 2010, and that will mean that I have been on Social Security Disability for over half my life (I had a heart attack at age 20, on top of my other disabilities). I have tried my best to survive on what little Social Security and Food Stamps provide. I am just a survivor and just trying to make it to each next day.
