    I've done some checking on the parent company and their other match sites.

Tallfriends, Ebonyfriends, Nudistfriends, Gothicmatch, Interracialmatch, Militaryfriends, Millionairematch, collegeromances, sportsfriends, deafs, greekcupid, positivesingles, singleparentmatch, catholiccupid, muslimtime, muslimfriends,.. ect.... Their adding more also.. Just havent as of yet...

    Take your pick, many for all races, religions-faiths, tastes, afflictions, ages, status..

    Some may be of help for their members to hear and chat with others of same interest... As BK has been for many here including me!...

    I wont go into detail but just to say the last two are full of hate towards my country, my beliefs and my values.. I wont be contributing to their hate of me and my country.. Bk is a cash cow which is supporting all the free members there and Im upset that as a paying member Here I have contributed to it also.. NO MORE for ME... Check em out yourselves, Religious threads especially.. They dont want peace just our destruction!..
    Thats all I ask.. For me Its enough to end things here! Was Stabbed in my back for all Ive put in here (2-yrs now)..

    Larry Holmes the boxer comes from Easton, PA where I grew up. But Easton was getting so bad I had to move a month ago. In fact, Larry's cousin was shot 4 blocks from my house the week before I left (he survived--his friend didn't).

    Also local is Mario Andretti and his son Michael living in Nazareth, PA. I used to work for an RV dealership and Mario would come on Wednesday mornings only when the place was closed to the public but all employees were there.

    Then there was Homer Long, the shortest man in OK and Bill Short, the tallest man in OK. Both have towns named after then, within about six miles from my house. That's almost the long and short of it, except for A cerain world famous tall tale teller, just cain't remember his name. : )

    I lived in Muskogee for 8 years. I would love to learn more about the history of the five civilized tribes. I have been told that my 2nd or 3rd great grandmother was Cherokee and Choctaw.
