PLEASE READ! DO NOT ADD ME IF YOU: 1) HAVE NO INTENTION OF TALKING TO ME AND/OR MEETING IN PERSON ONE DAY 2) ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN SHORT-TERM FRIENDSHIPS 3) HAVE A HABIT OF GHOSTING/DISAPPEARING ON PEOPLE FOR WEEKS, OR MONTHS, AT A TIME 4) NEVER INITIATE CORRESPONDENCE/COMMMUNICATION AND SIMPLY EXPECT OTHER PEOPLE (IN THIS CASE, ME) TO DO ALL THE WORK. Personal: 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/English Instructor looking to meet some new people for activity partners and (hopefully) friends. 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, since miscommunication is rampant around here, 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, but ONLY IF you're actually willing to meet in person some day; 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. Btw, I have Facebook Messenger; if you would like to correspond that way, send me a private message. Business: I am the Owner and Operator of Little Gnome Publications, a multimedia publishing outlet. I have a picture book out on the market that can be purchased HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Unspeakable-1-James-D-Lopez/dp/0692619593 or https://www.amazon.co.uk/Unspeakable-1-James-D-Lopez/dp/0692619593 My other merchandise can be purchased HERE: http://www.zazzle.com/littlegnomepub_s Here's the Facebook page for Little Gnome Publications: https://www.facebook.com/LittleGnomePublications/ Here's the Twitter page: https://twitter.com/LittleGnomePub Long-distance business collaborations and/or partnerships are also welcome.
