I am very romantic (...ok, sometimes) and I will serenade you on your birthday. (Warn the neighbors because I cannot sing for shit!)
I love traveling, hiking, snowboarding, kayaking, and biking. I rode a bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles once and would love to do it again. I'm also a good dancer...well, maybe an ok dancer. (Salsa, merengue, or cumbias, anyone?) But I want to do it all with an adventurous, funny woman. I'm not an adrenaline junkie, however, so if you just want to relax and veg-out on the couch with a movie, a bottle of wine and home-made pizza, I'm fine, too. You bring your favorite wine, I'll make the pizza. ;-)
I have a 13 year-old son whom I adore with all my heart. I became a true man the day he was born.
Shaving my face once in a while. Growing, challenging myself continuously. (As a kid, I used to sell fruit and shine shoes in the streets of Mexico, a few years ago I was recognized by the White House for my work protecting the environment, and just recently became a U.S. citizen. I'm Donald Chump and his ilk's worst nightmare.)
I'm a social justice advocate. I work at an org where I'm trying to change U.S. policies that exacerbate poverty in developing nations and migration to the U.S.: my dream job!
Ruining a good song with my voice and guitar;
Dropping "f" bombs (Warn your parents);
I can cook really good Mexican food...actually, my cooking skills are limited to mostly Mexican food, but I bet you'd love my beef in salsa verde burritos, pork tostadas and vegetarian potato tacos...or your money back. ;-)
Someone here once told me she does not "date crusaders." The best compliment I have ever received.
I have a very short attention span, so I don't like anything that requires me to stay hooked on, like TV series, or long stories. Right now I'm reading America (The book), by Jon Stewart. Hilarious! I can't wait to get hold of Stevens "I am America..."
I love to read politics, world and science news. I'll watch anything about traveling, nature, and world cultures. (Did I mention I have a degree in cultural anthropology?)
I love music! I try to play a few instruments. ("Try" being the operative word here.) I love most music genres in English, Spanish and world music. Lately I have been listening a lot of classical music . That Yo-Yo Ma really knows how to rock the cello. But my roots run deep; a live mariachi, grupo norteño, or banda sinaloense make my heart want to jump out of my chest and sing like it's it's 1999; and salsa and cumbias andinas and sonideras make my feet want to dance in my sleep. I totally love Mariachi El Bronx. When I grow up I want to be a band member.
I'm a foodie...O.k., I don't really know what that means, but everyone on OKcupid says it. So, if it has to do with loving all the "T" foods (tacos, tortas, tostadas, tamales, taquitos), weird, spicy foods and street foods, I'm it. When I travel I will go out of my way to find a local, mom and pop spot. I definitely love to experience the local culture through its cuisine. (If you love good Mexican food you will love hanging out with me. ;-) )
The usual suspects: love, family, blah, blah, blah. (Mark those as one, please.)
Energy and passion to unfuck the world.
A guitar, vihuela, jarana or charango (No, they are not STDs, they are string instruments from Mexico and Latin America; also count them as one, please.)
Coffee in the mornings
Spicy food...and toilett paper. (You know these two count as one, especially when in another country, right?)
And because I have never been good at following the rules and giving fucks, I'll add one more: my water bottle (reusable) with ice water, please.
Climate change impacts on our already limited water resources, especially in developing nations.
Why does OKCUPID send me profiles of fugly dudes and what would happen if I sent them messages like "Hey. How u doin'? ;-)"
If I don't go out, I'll most likely be at home, spending quality time with one of my guitars.
You love humanity, but have the maturity to laugh at her absurdity....or you won't mind if and when I do.
You want to explore the world with me while we make it a better place for the less fortunate. (Yeah, I know this is so corny, but I had to say it. That's just how I rolls.)
You are a polite woman who says "thank you" to the people who serve your food, but you are not afraid to tell a dirty joke or drop an "F" bomb.
You will challenge me to be my best and hope I will challenge you, too.
