My self-summary
I am Eva, and I'm here to meet people for friendship (mostly) and very selective dating. I'm in a strange place right now where I am hesitatingly exploring the different options within nonmonogamy without knowing what I'm going to conclude for myself.

I'm in a committed relationship with the user -TheBoogalution-, but that shouldn't prevent you from continuing to read! We both love growing as analytic political thinkers and would be excited to meet more like-minded individuals and collectives like us outside of our current environment.

I am originally a Venezuelan who grew up in Spain, and have a special interest in Latin America as a half-latina, half-european woman and a social activist. A lot of what I do relates to radical politics, writing, thinking, feminism, self-empowerment, Spanish and long-term organizing. I'm also very art-minded and I really enjoy talking my passions out and hearing other people's.

I would especially like some more healthy, sexually-explorative and comfortable people in my life too. I'd love to meet more folks who have experienced the nonmonogamous lifestyle, as I am particularly in need of advice to deal with some of the very intense feelings that make me doubt it. Maybe this is the place for that.
What I’m doing with my life
I have one year left at PSU studying Latin American Studies, and work as a radical nanny and a Spanish tutor/teacher.

I am a committed organizer both here and to a lesser extent in Spain. I'd consider myself a socialist-feminist. and I actively engage in meetings, study groups, and on the ground activism with that perspective.

I also read and write intensively in Spanish. It makes me less active knowing that nobody in this town is both a writer and a native Spanish speaker that I know off. I'm still navigating whether or not I can make Portland my long-term home when I am constantly labeled as an outsider.

I recently realized that, when given the choice, I'll choose to be near books and water. They are therapeutic and safe for me. I go to a bookstore and feel immediately better. I love that sensation. I spend a lot of time exploring text and reading it and discussing it in coffee shops, rivers and lakes.

I try to keep an open mind and immerse myself into challenging environments. Growth is always a huge part of my life. For example, I just recently embraced the label "feminism" and it has been incredibly liberating and challenging to make that fit into all my relationships. I hope I can contribute as much as I can to future waves.

Also, I'm going to Venezuela for 3 months this winter to explore my roots, family and to study the current political situation, that I find both inspiring and scary.
I’m really good at
It's been a long journey to get to the conclusion that I am, in fact, good at stuff. Depression has been very debilitating, but fortunately I'm getting to realize that I have power over some of my thoughts.

Listening, teaching Spanish, being inquisitive, radical thinking, taking pictures, challenging myself and my environment around me. Keeping myself busy.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent, definitely. This is both a good thing (I do like how it sounds) and a bad thing (so many of my interactions start with "Oh, you have an accent, where are you from?" and then me saying: "Spain", and then white dud saying: "oh cool! I went there for two days and it was awesome! Do you know Las Ramblas? And Dali??"). Yes, I know Las Ramblas, I know Dali and Gaudi, have taken naps and drank wine. And no, I do not care that you got drunk on your one night there and that you have an opinion about a city I grew up in that you think is very important for me to hear. Unless you actually do have interesting things to say :)

Also, that I tend to smile a lot. I promise it's genuine!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to become a more well-rounded independent person
- Political struggles and self-care
- How does change happen?
- The community that I so much need to feel okay
- Women. Solidarity among us all, and how to build strong networks to take care of each other
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my roommates, friends and/or boo, board games, going out to a reading or the theater, dancing, watching a movie or reading a book. Sometimes going out to eat if the economy allows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For most of the time I've been in the U.S., I've made decisions out of fear. This has made it so that I have built a low sense of self-worth and have subordinated my needs to that of those around me. I am in the process of changing that.

I'm a very open book if we get into any conversation.
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi girls
  • Ages 18–45
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
-You find that we would be able to hold a long and constructive conversation about film, books, music, polyamory, feminism/queer theory or revolutionary politics. If it's in Spanish you should definitely contact me!
- You want to take me out and you think I would want you to do that too
- You think that building community and committed relationships (whether they are with friends, roommates, family or lovers) is important and would like to share experiences.
-You're queer or female identified person and have an interest in meeting me for a date or just for fun.
-You are interested in radical thought, whether you consider yourself a radical or not at all.

-You like food as much as I do!
