Update: 12-3-16....I'm now able to host again but only under certain conditions.
1- I'd prefer you are from outside the U.S. and or at least outside the State of Nevada as I rarely host local people due to certain issues out of my control.
2- I've not hosted for the past couple of years due to my own travels and some personal issues that have taken up my time. Please read my profile before sending a request and please have references from other hosts and or from people you may have hosted.
If I've responded to your request and offered to host you please reply in kind by either accepting or declining my invite as I also do my best to reply to all requests even if it's a few days late and or even if I cannot host you.
I've hosted some very wonderful people. Sadly some are no longer on CS and CS lost some of my references when they changed to being greedy but I've made some nice friends that I keep in touch with.
I'm a kind, caring and sweet natured guy just as my references say.
My name is Drew. I'm a fun, laid back, interesting and complete gentleman. I have a fun loving, adventurous personality and a great sense of humor. I love to laugh and if you don't enjoy joking and sarcasm we may not get along.;)
I'm retired very young from a law enforcement career in NY State and now live in Las Vegas. With that being said I have a very liberal attitude towards most things in life yet stay committed to my own personal principles, beliefs and morals in regards to simply being nice to other individuals in life unless they give me a reason not to do so.
I've worked with 280 large cats of all varieties and I do cat behavioral therapy for people that may have a troubled house cat or if you simply want to teach your cat some new things. I can teach you to communicate with your cat as if you were a cat. I've been at it a very long time and my guests can vouch for how my cats and I get along. I also find the study of human nature to be intriguing as I'm a very curious being at heart.
At times I've lived a very blessed life and other times it's been not very blessed at all. I've lived in nice homes, lived in my car, stayed at a King's palace in Jaipur, slept in the streets of Paris, first responder on 9-11, First American to drive that tiny Smart car, etc..etc...I've had so many varying experiences that I love to share with others as I've also used up 6 of my 9 lives....lol...So, while I have 3 left I'm enjoying them to their fullest. If anyone simply wishes to meet for a meal, coffee, a drink, great conversation, etc..please don't hesitate to email me.
I can also share investment goals and advice to anyone that would listen about building long term wealth. It's been a passion of mine for a while and I do plan on giving most away to charities even long after I depart this earth so it will be a perpetual way of giving. I'm a strong believer that we should all do our best to help those who possibly can't help themselves for whatever reasons.
I'm also a very single and available gentleman so please don't blame me for being interested in possibly meeting and hosting as part of a potential search for a long term companion. With that being said....I'm a gentleman first and foremost and I would still host anyone even if you have no romantic interest at all. So, you may be very upfront and honest in your requests as I will also be with you as we're all respectful adults on here. So, please feel free to indicate in your requests if you may or not also be searching for a potential companion. I will also do the same for you as honesty is my favorite policy.
I don't mind age differences as we can always learn new things from each other no matter what. I say what I mean and mean what I say. When/If you ask me a question I will give you an honest answer.
I believe in doing as much as you can to make someone smile each and everyday. Giving is better than receiving and possibly providing someone else with something you have and they don't is one of the greatest feelings in the world. It doesn't have to be a materialistic thing as it can be a meal, a hug, a smile, a good deed, etc..etc..
I do enjoy studying history and politics and learning from the past mistakes.
If I do host you I may or may not wish to join you in your adventures here and around Vegas. Please don't be offended if I can't join you as it only means I'm busy with other stuff.
Thanks. Happy and safe travels to you all.
Do unto others as you'd have done to yourself.
"Just be yourself because everyone else is already taken"...
Live each day as a new and exciting day cause yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not here yet. Our lives are extremely short and precious in the grand scheme of the world so make sure to take it all in.
Take chances in life, love and learning new things.
