Seeking Friends Only

Hello. My name is James Lopez (aka Jimbo the Gnome), and I am an L.A.- based (San Pedro, more specifically) Writer/Artist/(non- professional) Musician/Adjunct English Instructor looking to meet some new people for activity partners and (hopefully) friends (male, female, other, non-binary: gender is irrelevant). I am very happily engaged to a wonderful woman; however, making a few new friends is always welcome, especially since my fiancee and I have very few local friends who share our interests (such as Traditional Gothic Rock and 80's music). Just to be clear, I am interested in friends, and ONLY friends (and, to a lesser extent, artistic and/or business connections). If you live within the vicinity of San Pedro, Torrance, Carson, or Long Beach, or in the L.A. area in general, I/we would love to meet you. I'm also not opposed to making some long-distance friends/penpals; one way or another, we'll make it work. Yes, I am very shy, but I know that I can't hide forever; neither should you. Just a heads-up: I take friendship seriously; whether this is a plus or a warning depends on you.

Look for in a partnerNot looking for a partner; just good, long-term friends who share my interests. I am NOT looking for flakes, reclusive introverts, or people who will always depend on my efforts alone to keep a friendship going. I like people who are honest, reliable, consistent, loyal, and, ultimately, in it for the long haul.
