Let’s see here…how to describe myself? I come from a close knit family of Portuguese descent. And yes I speak Portuguese fluently. I am pretty laid back so I get along with most people. I am a bit of a free spirit and I definitely need a little space now and then but having someone in my life to share it with would be kind of nice too ;) My friends tell me I am good-humored and fun to spend time with. I also like spending time at home. According to them, I can tell a good story. I enjoy nothing better than a stimulating conversation and have been known to stay up all night when I am on a roll! I am really not comfortable with drama - I prefer you to let me know what’s on your mind “straight up” rather than trying to guess and getting in trouble for getting it wrong!
The type of person I'm looking for is difficult to describe as I haven’t met her yet. I hope she will be someone who is comfortable with who she is and can be herself around me. She would have a sense of humor, be spontaneous, intelligent, understanding, creative, passionate, and kind. I do have to spend a lot of time in front of the computer because it is the nature of my work so she would need to be OK with that. On occasion she should be able to let her inhibitions go and allow the tigress that she keeps locked up inside out.
What I am hoping for, at first, is a relationship that will grow naturally. I'm not the type who will stay in a bad relationship just because I want to be in a relationship. I won't compromise on that. I am always cautious at first but if I find someone that I end up really caring a great deal about I don’t hesitate to jump into that relationship with both feet. I would like to have a family eventually, with the right person.
So, about my hobbies…. I seem to keep myself busy with a lot of stuff. I like to Garden and grow my own vegetables in the back yard. I really like movies, anything from action to romance and science fiction (with the exception of horror movies). My favorite line in a movie is from “Princess Bride: “Don’t rush a miracle man sonny, you rush a miracle man you get rotten miracles”! I would like to take you to a play or a concert now and then. I am not a bad cook- I make a great Cornish hen!
I also like to drive up into the Interior to visit friends, spend time with my family and just visit different places in this wonderful province of ours. I enjoy going to music festivals with friends and am looking forward to going to one in Kamloops next summer.
