My self-summary
NOTICE - (I am taking a yet-to-be-determined amount of time off from Cupid, but I wanted to leave my profile active so I can tell you this and hopefully you don't think I hate/ am ignoring you and things. Just focusing elsewhere. Cheers. 08.04.2014)

I have a lot of ideas, adventure and fun - probably too much - and I very much like myself and the people around me. I like to run (but not competitively), play outside, dance and sing (but like karaoke and in cars, not on true stages, I'd piss myself). I also enjoy getting to know what other people are passionate about, and doing most anything new.

I talk too much sometimes. I have a lot to say is all. See "I'm really good at..." for the only plea I have to make.

MBTI :Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment - http://www.personalitypage.com/html/ENFP_rel.html
It says "Although two well-developed individuals of any type can enjoy a healthy relationship, ENFP's natural partner is the INTJ, or the INFJ. ENFP's dominant function of Extraverted Intuition is best matched with a partner whose dominant function is Introverted Intuition."

In the beginning, this profile was only a playful thing (hence all the immaturity and carelessness), and maybe a bit of a test to see if OkCupid could walk the tightrope between being Tinder and being eHarmony (I am part of neither; I never have been, because I'm not looking exclusively for ass or eternal bliss at the moment, I'm just looking.)
What brings you here?

Drugs.

Not. I am about to graduate from college & then I'll work (hire me) and/or continue to study civil engineering & español.

THINGS I'M CURRENTLY PURSUING ARE...
(I) My bachelor's degrees (in I - Interdisciplinary Studies with dual concentrations in Materials & Spanish, II - Civil & environmental engineering, and III - Spanish);
(II) Physical fitness/ Training for a half-marathon in June 2014 (Please run/ walk/ hike/ bike/ dance with me);
(III) Post-college place (Geographically & professionally);
(IV) Clarifying what I want in a partner & seeking that out;
(V) Improved academic commitment & study habits;
(VI) Balance, happiness & enlightenment; and finally,
(VII) Total Self-acceptance.

RAMBLIN'
I travel internationally when I can (mostly as a student, I have been to Costa Rica, Central Spain, and for a shorter time to England and North Africa that way) and nationally when I've good company to go in.
Before college I spent a couple of weeks in Mexico and a couple in Southeast Asia - each of those were mission trips. I want to visit the Amazon rain forest, New Zealand, The Caribbean and the rest of Spain within the next 5-7 years.
I'ma Venture to South America (Ecuador, Peru, Chile,...) to improve my Spanish fluency, if only I can sweet-talk my school into sending me there on university funding...
Where is your favorite place in the world? Where would you go if you were handed a stack of cash and a wildcard plane ticket?

FOOD:
Also a long story, but I regularly have cravings for Indian, Thai, traditional Mexican, sushi and pizza, because of the favorable cheese-to-other things ratio. Spicy, sour, rich, earthy and wild all are components to great flavor.

TELEVISION & MOMENTARY FIXATIONS:
The last of all of these that I picked up and loved were...

* TV SHOWS: "House of Cards," "New Girl," and "Orange Is The New Black."
Please explain to me why everyone loves "Mad Men," besides Don Draper's voice/face/perpetually perfect five o'clock shadow/swag.
It just makes me want to smoke and objectify women.

* BOOKS: _Eat,_Pray,_Love_ and the Hunger Games series. Right now I am reading _Cloud_Atlas_ and _How_to_Be _an_Adult_in_Relationships_.

*MOVIES: "Looper" and "Tombstone."

*MUSIC: At The Moment - Carla Bruni (she can sing to me in French forever, please), Lana del Rey, the Black Keys, Beirut, the Postal Service, and anything you could possibly run to.

The six things I could never do without
I. All things food
II. Endorphins
III. Novelty
IV. Music
V. Travel, especially in mountainous, oceanic, tropical & cosmopolitan environments.
VI. Communication/Language exchange
(I am increasing my conversational pool by becoming fluent in one of the two most important languages in the Americas, because I want the option of talking to every person I meet, and that's a good first move. We're too damn lucky that we happen to speak English as a first language, because it provides us with such a massive communication network. That said, I admonish you to learn other languages and bridge the communication gaps. Besides, Spanish is sexy.)
____________________________________________________
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Metacognition.

*What I am projecting versus what I really am;
*What I really ought to / want to be doing right now;
*What other people may perceive, think, feel -
(read "exhaustingly perpetual speculative over-sympathizing");
*Self improvement & acceptance (what they mean, how to achieve them, et cetera);
*How to solve problems and do things more efficiently.
____________________________________________________
On a typical Friday night I am
Electric.

Usually doing something social. Examples are:
Arts and entertainment (Movie nights, Concerts, Plays),
Outside things (Playing at the park, Bonfires, Camping)
Being a typical, unruly college kid (Libation, Dancing, Costume/theme parties)
Talk-Centric Activities (Game nights, Pool, Dinner with friends, Dates & drinks)
Letting it out (Running til my legs fall off, Dive bar karaoke, Arson)
Dying, because I didn't sleep enough that week and Friday is the new Sunday.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I gave my Mom five OkC stars. She deserves all of them.

I say I'm bisexual in my profile, but I, like most people who are subtly aware of what is expected of them, am not really in touch with every part of my sexuality. Early in life, I was told/convinced that it was immoral and unnatural to be attracted to someone of your own gender. I've never dated a woman, and it's rare that I am significantly physical with one. It's less scary somehow to confront this here than in my three-dimensional, personal/ public life. Women are beautiful and sensual, and I am (open to) exploring the freedom in sexuality that many people keep themselves from pointlessly.

__________________________________________________

WHAT I WANT IN A PARTNER - As I can't write in the section below ("I'm looking for"):

*Someone who knows what (s)he wants and is taking steps to achieve it. A person of action, not words, not promises, not self-promoting charms nor out-loud dreams.

*Someone who finds him/herself at least as attractive as (s)he finds me, physically and otherwise. Mutual physical attraction is essential (I don't understand how anyone could say it's not?) Purely physical attraction, however, is not reason enough for me to engage in (prolonged) conversation. I do not/ cannot engage in romance or physical connection without intellectual stimulation.

*Someone with whom I "Venn diagram," but don't overlap. I don't trust in the match percentages, but if you're into that, I'm more inclined to visit a profile that's around 75% on my level (25% or less enemies).

*Someone who is on my approximate level of intellect, education, maturity, emotional wellness/openness, spirituality, fitness, community (we are not wired to be hermits) and activity.
(What I really mean by "activity" is a self-propelled desire to partake in activities in general. I really, really don't like to plea bargain & pull teeth to get someone off of the couch/ Xbox/ marijuana, etc. and go galumphing with me. I play well with extroverts, ambiverts and flexible introverts, just be sociable.)

I'LL BE MORE INCLINED TO MESSAGE YOU BACK IF...

I. You have read some of this long, long profile (especially the "WHAT I WANT IN A PARTNER" section under "The Most Private Thing I'm Willing to Admit") & are confident that we could have more than a few drinks or a night to contribute to each other's lives. We can get that almost anywhere, let's strive some.

II. If your first words seem directed & purposeful in getting to know me and introduce you. I'm not very casual and I put a lot of stock into words and expression - especially at first impressions - so I may immediately dismiss you as a prospective partner/ date/ stranger-chat at "Sup girl."

Also, I find non-use of punctuation really problematic in discerning your meaning. I'm ridiculously intuitive with spelling and language, so I cannot fully relate to people who aren't, but in general how people perceive you will depend on how you communicate.

__________________________________________________

IF I DON'T MESSAGE YOU BACK, IT'S BECAUSE...

I. You are not the person I am looking to meet.

II. I think your iPhone-in-the-bathroom-mirror picture is silly.

III. I can't take you seriously when you say
"hey whats up your intresting"
and immediately want to exchange numbers or proposition me for a friends-with-benefits relationship. Friends? Benefits? Bitch please, you are a picture of stranger abdominals and no head with an auto-generated profile name.

IV. You're so very hot & impressive that it makes me nervous. I'm idling on a response and will be for days, maybe.

V. You're a catfish.
( http://es.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=catfish )

VI. I'm a catfish?

VII. Or you seem sketchy/ homophobic/ racist/ etc.

I'm telling you all this, because it's better to shoot straight than to focus on being nice and to leave people in the dark.

THINGS I FIND ATTRACTIVE:

Eyes, healthy appearance; strong, angular features; curves, full lips, exotic aspects (that's relative), height (also relative); well-defined physicality (squared shoulders, chiseled calves, prominent jawlines & cheekbones); ectomorphs and mesomorphs (see http://exerciseauthorities.com/?p=1229); voices (depth, resonance & sonority); good smells, good presentation and posture, grace, social finesse, candor, intelligence (there maybe nine kinds, two of my favorites are interpersonal & spatial intelligence), wit, humor, passion, boldness, intuition, wild cards, eccentricity, autonomy, inclination to travel, explore & dance, soul, complexity, enterprise, assertion and initiative, and...
