Sherman is the type of person you always want to be around. He's strong, handsome, a great lover, and good friend. He's very loyal and hardworking. If he loves you he truly means it with all of his heart. Sherman is often shorter but that doesn't stop the ladies. He's very sexy, smart, and has a good sense of humor. Everyone needs a Sherman in their life.
