Psychology, language, and culture are endlessly interesting to me. I'm Spanish-English bilingual and need more Spanish-speakers in my life, dates and friends alike! My accent is Castilian, a remnant of my time in Spain.
My work keeps me very active and busy, but I lead a thriving social life bursting with the greatest friends and family a person could wish for: fascinating, driven, self-aware smarty-pants who are also fun and incredibly supportive. They inspire me to be more of all those things, and set the bar high. I’d eventually like to find a partner and start a family, but those pursuits can’t be rushed and I’m content with my life and those in it. In a relationship, I’m independent, though very much an extravert.
I couldn’t give less of a shit what’s "cool," but I have a unique sense of style and I like what I like, from the utterly pop to the utterly esoteric. My favorite wardrobe items are hand-me-downs, thrift, or vintage finds. I like things and places with history, a story behind them. I don’t feel especially attached to/rooted in my time and enjoy feeling transported to a different one (via music, architecture, etc).
Small talk has its place on a first date, but there's no better aphrodisiac than good conversation. I never shy away from open, respectful discussion of an intellectual, political, or personal bent. Social justice and gender equality matter to me a great deal and affect my relationship choices. Likewise, I value empathy, fairness, consideration, sincerity, and communication skills in a partner.
Finally, I'm a yes girl. I want to explore/discover/adventure beyond my usual stomping grounds, try new things, meet new people, challenge myself. Being on OkCupid is a vote of confidence in the unknown.
