MORNING AFTER GRACE
Barter Stage II

SEEKING:

OLLIE
Male. African-American (but open to any ethnicity). 68 years old. Formerly a baseball player for the Detroit Tigers who now enjoys golf and yoga. Though he’s long past his playing days, and a bit bearish in form, he retains the vague essence of an athlete. Robust, feels younger than he is. Extroverted, warm, and a bit of a gossip…
