Hello everyone. How are you doing? I hope you"re doing extremely well. Please review my profile thoroughly BEFORE responding to me (and if you don"t have a well-detailed profile and a pic of you, I will NOT add you at all, and plese don"t tell me "I"m on the downlow," because I"ve heard it all before and it"s tired and old. Don"t get me wrong, I understand that not a lot of people can be openly gay or lesbian due to professional employment purposes or because friends and family will react differently and I will never out people like that at all or disclose their personal affairs in public, but at the same time, I will NOT add you at all. Nowadays, people are too lazy to add a pic and add intelligent information about themselves, besides their sexual activities, and in my personal opinion, it"s completely unacceptable). However, I will accept invites ONLY if they would at least include intelligent information about themselves on their profiles without me asking, including an introduction of yourself, what city/state you reside in, your occupations (excluding the name of the employer and salary, because those are unimportant and I don"t want to know what you make), music preferences, education level (high school diploma, Associates" Degree, Bachelor"s Degree, etc.), hobbies/interests (e.g., reading, skateboarding, cooking, writing, etc.), favorite movie titles (e.g., Dead Poets Society, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Fantastic Four, Batman Forever, Interview with a Vampire, Van Helsing, etc.), something that"s interesting for me to know about you (although the sexual part is nice, it"s not as interesting to know about you on that level as the intelligent side of you). I"m only here to watch the videos, but I"m NOT that addicted to XTube at all because I have a life offline.
I"m 100% openly gay and I"m proud with who I am (I"m NOT straight, I"m definitely NOT bisexual, and I definitely don"t believe in living a discreet life or being on the downlow, unlike others who are). I"m not flamboyant and I don"t act feminine/girly at all (which is why most women make assumptions that I"m straight, because of how I carry and conduct myself in public and in private). I know everyone is on XTube for various reasons (and please stop telling me, "This is a sex site" or "Why are you even here on this site?"), but I"m NOT here to look for quick hookups, friends with benefits, booty calls, phone sex, one-night stands or relationships at all (whether online or in person), so if you think I"m here to look for those and meet in person for those, you"re at the wrong page!!! I"m just seeking friends only. And just to clear any misconceptions, I"m NOT a thug or gangsta at all, and I don"t speak "thug ebonics" at all. And please don"t ask me about having a webcam because that will not happen either.
I"m an only child and have no siblings at all (I wish I had a sibling, but my mother said, "Oh no! After you popped out, that was it!" lol). I"m extremely independent and self-sufficient, have my own apartment and have my own transportation Ô car of course (thank God I have no roommates lol. Most of them can be from hell and you wouldn"t even know it).
I possess a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Paralegal Studies, and I previously worked in 3 law firms on a part-time basis for the past 3 years, but I"ve quit all 3 of them due to the crappy pay and no benefits. Plus, I suffered from exhaustion and even my family and friends told me to slow down. I"m so sorry I didn"t listen to them. I"m so happy to say that after 6 months of training and obtaining my degree in Visual Communications, I now have 1 full-time job as Graphic & Web Designer and I"m so happy that I"ve made this career transition. I love my career very much and I can now provide better for myself and can get my parents the things they were never able to get. I still model occasionally, but I don"t make it a full-time career. On the weekends, I"m also a teen counselor at a gay youth center (which I love very much).
In regards to thugs and gangstas, do not even get me started about them, because I don"t trust them at all. In my personal opinion, they make the worst partners in relationships (they really don"t how to commit to a relationship, and they"re so dense, they wouldn"t even know what a committed relationship is if it was handed to them in a specially-marked box). They say that they love you, but all they"re good for are prison, sex, drugs & violence. In addition, most thugs/gangbangers don"t even speak proper English, have no brains and no intelligence at all. They only speak thug ebonics by saying, "Yo. Dis b yo boi Mike, and I"m ballin" hardcore. Holla back atcha boi. Peace." Now who the hell can understand what they"re saying? I"ll have to take an interpreter to translate what they"re saying to me (lol). I"m NOT a thug, and I"m NOT a gangsta at all, so if you"re going to communicate with me, talk like a normal person.
In addition, thugs & gangbangers are always using the N word towards other people and I hate that word so much (not that it"s a surprise to me though). If they don"t know how to address me by my name, they don"t need to say anything to me at all. It"s very shameful that even educated and intelligent African-Americans are still using the N word excessively, and only an uneducated and brainless fool would use the word. I have a name, and if you can"t address me by my name, don"t bother saying anything to me at all. It may not be a big issue with most of you, but it"s a big issue with me.
My best features are my eyes, spirit, upbringing and friendly personality. In addition, I"m very bold, blunt, direct, upfront, forward, outspoken, I keep it real and I tell it like it is. I know myself very well, and if you don"t like who I am, get out of my face and move on. I don"t have any room in my life for haters.
I"m a non-drinker, non-smoker, and have never done drugs in my entire life, and I can"t stand being around people who drink excessively, smoke excessively, smoke weed or do drugs. When people do these, they"re not positive role models at all.
Anyone who tells you, "I"m open to friendship" is a translation for, "I"m looking for friends with benefits, one-night stands, booty calls, quickies and casual encounters." I"m NOT into one-night stands, booty calls, friends with benefits, casual encounters, or pointless & meaningless sex. I highly respect others who only want these because it"s their choice, but these do NOT define who I am and will never be me at all. I"d rather be alone than unhappy with someone who only wants these instead of true love.
I"m all for same-sex marriages (although I know that most of you are opposed to it for various reasons that I"ve already heard) because everyone has a right to love who they want to love, and marry who they want to marry.
I haven"t been in any relationship for 2 years since the passing of my ex-boyfriend (there"s a photo of him on my photos section as well). He was the love of my life and I was so blessed to have such a beautiful, wonderful, loving and caring man who loved me for who I am. On Christmas Day of 2006, I lost him to a life-threatening disease called spinal meningitis. I had a difficult time accepting his death and it was the very first holiday I"ve spent the holidays without him, but my family was home for the holidays and my dad said, "I know it"s so difficult for you to accept his untimely passing, but Steve would want you to be happy and in love again. You have to move on." My mom said, "Your father"s right. You can"t hold onto him forever. He"s home with God now and you have to move on and be happy again." They"re right. I realize that everything happens for a reason, and I"ve finally accepted his death and moved on. I have no plans to become involved in another relationship and I"m extremely happy and complete being single (I"m abstinent and I"m remaining abstinent permanently). Most people think you need someone to be complete and that may be true for them, but I don"t need a man to be complete. I love my single life very much.
My parents, relatives and my friends (gay, straight, bi) have given me so much love, support and encouragement. I always return the love, support and encouragement to them. I was brought up in a Christian household and I worship & serve my God just like everyone else because God is the head of my life (I"m also the son of a minister, but my lifestyle has nothing to do with him or my mother at all, so don"t even think negative if you"re going to tell me, "What? You"re the son of a preacher and you"re gay? Your parents will hate you tremendously").
When contacting me, please let me know you"re from the XTube website (and please, don"t contact me saying "What"s up" or "Hey there" and just leave it at that, and DON"T contact me expecting sex or quick hookups, because that will never in a million years). Also, do NOT address me with the N word, and DON"T call me "Son," "Kid" "Pimp," "Player" or "Cuz" (I hear enough thugs and gangbangers calling each other that). I have a name and if you don"t know how to address me properly, then don"t stop by my page to say anything at all. Thank you all so much for your time and I look forward to establishing beautiful friendships with all of you. Take excellent care and don"t work too hard (lol).
With hugs, friendship, encouragement and support always, Edwin Williams Ô Chicago, IL
P.S. Most people think I"m arrogant or conceited when I stated the above, but I don"t care what they think of me when they read this, because they don"t know me at all. And I don"t expect everyone to agree with the above statements, because everyone has different experiences and different opinions and I highly respect them.
Intelligence, brains, education, great personality, a person who shows compassion and kindness towards others.
Arrogance, rudeness, conceitedness, non-intelligence, African-Americans who continue to communicate using broken English and use the N word (which is the primary reason I will NOT accept invites from other African-Americans at all) and continue to speak "thug ebonics" (e.g., "Sup?" "Dawg," "Son," "Pimp," "Playa").
Matrix, Matrix Reloaded, Spider Man 1 &; 2, Dead Poets Society, X-Man-The Last Stand, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Freddy vs. Jason, Dreamgirls (I really recommend this highly, especially if you"re a fan of Jennifer Hudson), The Nutty Professor, Eating Out, Eating Out 2-Sloppy Seconds, When Darkness Falls, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Silence of The Lambs, The Exorcist (one of my all-time favorite movies), Music and Lyrics, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Epic Movie, Daddy"s Little Girls, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea"s Family Reunion, Madea Goes to Jail, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Why Did I Get Married, Scary Movie 1-5, The Original Kings of Comedy, The Queens of Comedy, House Party, Deliver Us From Eva, Soul Plane, Barbershop, Barbershop 2-Back in Business, Carrie, Saturday Night Fever, Friday the 13th (the 2009 version sucked), Hairspray (the original version), and Disturbia.
My hobbies are reading, writing poetry (my poetry writings are XXX-rated, uncensored, and extremly graphic. I also write poetry on friendship and love too), cooking, martial arts, kickboxing, and traveling (England is one of my favorite places to visit because I"ve visited Brighton and London, and I"ve also went to a huge nightclub called Ministry of Sound, which is also located in London and is one of the most popular dance clubs that specializes in hardcore trance/techno music. Their Trance Nation and Club Nation nonstop mix CDs are available at your local record stores. Some of my other favorites states are Russia, Mexico, and China. Some of my favorite states in the US are Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, Massachusetts, Florida, California, Texas, Mississippi, and New Jersey). For fun and excitement, I LOVE dancing, tennis, racquetball, volleyball, and baseball. I love living my life to the fullest and I always go by the old saying, "Life"s too short, seize the moment. Otherwise, you"ll never know what you"ve got until it"s gone."
I love all kinds of music including pop/rock, trance (uplifting and progressive), disco, alternative, jazz, progressive house, R&B, classical rock (60s, 70s, 80s), and instrumental hip-hop just to name a few (I"m NOT a fan of hardcore gangsta rap because, to me personally, it"s very degrading and sends negative messages about violence, brutality and outrage. This is why I only prefer instrumental hip-hop only, without the annoying rap portion). Some of my favorite musical artists includes Fischerspooner (I love their dance single "Emerge"), Donna Summer, Ricky Martin, Sarah McLachlan (I love her remixes of Plenty and Silence), Chemical Brothers, No Doubt, R.E.M., Daft Punk, Anita Baker, Sade, Ciara, Run DMC, Godsmack, Madonna, Hootie & The Blowfish, Kenny G, Bananarama, Pink, Creed, Dido (I love her singles "Here With Me" and "Thank You"), Dave Matthews, Beyonce, Jane"s Addiction, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Everything But The Girl, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, BeBe & CeCe Winans, Toni Braxton, Deborah Cox, Kim English, BT, Schiller, Jan Johnston, Gina G, Kylie Minogue (I love her singles "Can"t Get You Out Of My Head" and "Come Into My World"), Enigma, Madison Avenue, and Radiohead.
My favorite trance/progressive house music DJs are Ferry Corsten (aka System F), Above and Beyond aka Oceanlab (their releases and remixes are DA BOMB!!!!), Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Johnny Vicious, Temple One, Activa, Wellenrausch, Andy Blueman, and Victor Calderone just to name a few.

About my Partner
My ideal partner was my boyfriend who passed away 3 years ago on Christmas Day of 2006 (he passed away from a life-threatening disease called meningitis. For those of you who don"t know what meningitis is, it"s the inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges. The inflammation may be caused by infection with viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms, and less commonly by certain drugs. Meningitis can be life-threatening because of the inflammation"s proximity to the brain and spinal cord). We were going to spend the rest of our lives together after graduating from college. I miss him very much and he will always be in my heart, but his passing also gave me the strength to move on, and just because I"ve moved on doesn"t mean I"m on the market for relationships, booty calls, one-night stands or friends with benefits, whether online or in person.
