My name is Charles, but my friends call me “Red”. I’m 5’9″ 240lbs. -Divorced- (she recently passed away Nov. 2021). We had no children, still don’t, never did. About me: Born & Raised in the Woodlawn Area until the age of 1 yr. old. Went to Catholic School until I became a ward of the State from then on. I aged out at 18 yrs of age.
I joined the U.S. Army at 20 yrs old from Nov. 1982 until Jan. 1989. Was married in ’82 and also took basic at Ft. Dix, New Jersey then on to Ft. Jackson, South Carolina. First Duty Station Ft. Gordon, GA and stayed there until I was sent to Germany where I made SGT. My wife did not like military life & requested to come home back to the states in ’89. I got an Honorable Discharge from the Army. Once back in Chicago, we split up.
I’ve had different relationships with other women with children and without! I’ve had relationships with Black, White and Latinos some with kids. I love women with kids from mid 30’s to 50 yrs of age. Not looking to start a family, but will accept a ready made family. Looking for women that are from 180lbs to 240lbs that are pretty good looking and with good self esteem. Also who have a positive outlook on life and want to share a life with someone who’s the same. I’ve been alone for quite some time and now that my time is short, I would like to find and get to know someone who don’t mind sharing a life with a man with a checkered past.
We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but the Father I serve is forgiving! I believe in family – trust – faithfulness – and being loving and loyal always. I was brought up that way and still that way today! I have had a lot of bumps in the road in this life, some good a lot bad. I’ve made my fair share of mistakes and have paid for them all. I can discuss these things in person or through text messaging. I’ve put on a few pounds since my incarceration which I hope to lose once released. My normal weight is between 170 to 200lbs, but due to the food that prison serves I’ve gained more weight than I like mostly due to the fact that I’m a diabetic(type 2), so I take insulin twice a day. Prison food consists mostly of starch & carbs which for me is not healthy, but I have no choice on what’s on the menus. I’ve made a case that I’ve ballooned from 170 to 240 since I first got here.
Anyway, I’m drug free, cig. free and plan only to drink on a once in a blue moon basis. What you do is your right. I do not try to tell anyone what to do or not to do… just respect me and I will do the same. Hope to hear from you soon!
