Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am divorced high school teacher with 2 children. I have many
interests: literature, music, sports (mainly soccer), languages.
I'm looking for someone who I can talk to: that's the basis for a
good relationship. Everything else is important, but if you don't
connect on an emotional/intellectual level, then there's really
I am politically and socially liberal, and although I'm not a
political person, I probably need someone who agrees with me for
the most part when it comes to these issues. So, if you're a
pro-lifer or republican, we won't have much to talk about.
I have been lucky enough to travel extensively in my life, and
always on a low budget (meaning I usually worked wherever I went).
I have lived in Mexico, Venezuela and even in Eastern Europe. After
the wall came down, I was able to teach English in Slovakia for a
year--the most unforgettable year of my life, probably.
About my personality, I guess I'd have to say that I enjoy to
laugh. I know life is a serious matter, but so is enjoying
I love my job, b/c kids have open minds and it's refreshing to work
with individuals like that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love to read, and I love movies. In college, I majored in English
(but that's not what I teach) and so have a love of literature.
Independent movies usually have something to say; I love French
cinema because they place a high value on dialogue and in
uncovering the deeper motivations of human behavior. To know what I
mean, check out "Olivier, Olivier" and "The Vanishing" (French
version, of course).
Movies: Little Big Man, Chinatown, Persona, Blue
Novels: As I Lay Dying, Absalom! Absalom! (love Faulkner),
Beloved, Brothers Karamazov

How they get those holes in Swiss cheese.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
