I love latin culture but I don´t really like living in the third world.
I am Colombian but I don´t drink coffee.
I love shallow things like fashion but I don´t enjoy so much being around shallow people.
I´m gay but my best friends are straight.
I love animals and despise animal abuse but I love a Filet Mignon.
I love sex but I think it should be meaningful.
I was raised very catholic and went to a catholic all boys private school and a Jesuit University but I don´t trust religious people very much.
I´m a huge extrovert to my close friends but kind of an introvert to strangers.
I don´t find very often on Netflix movies I want to watch but I won´t cancel my account.
I eat like a pig but I´m not fat.
I´m a little bit from here and a little bit from there. Sometimes conservative, most of the time ultra liberal. Usually very nice (and so I´ve been told).
I do find dates a bit awkward:
Two people trying to convince each other that they are the perfect fit, that the mother in law would love them, that they´ve got their life completely figured out. Like a job interview but sometimes you get lucky (or unlucky) and end up naked in someone´s bed.
I´d rather just meet someone, have a decent conversation, one drink, or two, or three, laugh, get serious at times,... maybe dance if it goes well? And then.....then we talk about the life goals, and the babies, and the bank account balance. Life is too short to waste it being so worried about such little things.
I´m a photographer, I write, I love, I laugh, I drink, I tan, I lay in the park, I think of my family often, I treasure my friends, I dance till the world ends.
Bogotá, Dallas, Miami, Buenos Aires, Savannah, Hilton Head...are places where I have lived. Now writing my story in NYC. Loving its sweaty Summers, enjoying its mellow winters and trying to deal with the 4 pm sunsets.
