I'm a short, sweet, and funny native New Yorican with a youthful personality and looking to date and take it from there. I'm a creative guy who has too many (nerdy) hobbies and am looking to find someone to take my attention away from them. I'm easy going and have a calm demeanor. A bit shy by nature, but also very open-minded and like trying new things. It's a way for me to get over my initial shyness and break that much more out of my shell. I do warm up quickly however and am an affectionate person...with a bit of "liquid courage" even more so...
I work in retail. It keeps me afloat (for now), but I am looking get out and start a new career.
Cooking - I look at recipes for inspiration rather than as instructions.
Being diplomatic - I'm the peacekeeper amongst friends and family
Movies: Anything by Almodovar and studio Ghibli/Miyazaki become my instant classics. I love comedies that range from the dry humor of Christopher Guest and his ensemble to the potty and political satire that South Park delivers. I do enjoy a good summer action blockbuster from time to time as well. Some other favorites: The Skin I Live In, 50/50, Bridesmaids, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, Margaret Cho, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Bad Education Art School Confidential, Transformers (1986), Blades of Glory, Harlem Nights, Nacho Libre, Mean Girls, Harry Potter, The Dark Crystal, Edge of Seventeen, I tried watching Sharknado and as campy and purposefully awful as it was I still could only get through the first 15 minutes.
TV: The Heart She Holler, Grimm, How to Get Away With Murder, Broad City, The Walking Dead, Total Divas, Bates Motel, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones, The Mindy Project, Workaholics, Parks and Rec, Louie, Its Always Sunny in Philidelphia, Girls, Adventure Time, Merlin (BBC), The League, trashy tv like Millionaire Matchmaker and Maury Povich. Sometimes I'll catch myself mesmerized by the train wreck that is the Kathy Lee and Hoda hour of the Today Show. Recently my friends exposed me to the nerdgasm that is Dr. Who. I'm starting with Matt Smith era and working my way backwards.
Music: I like all music that I deem catchy....from Britney Spears to Foster the People to Ghostface Killah to Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Steel Panther to Remy Ma. Sorry country and death metal fans... I haven't caught on to those genres yet. Mayhaps you could change my mind?
Food: Mexican, Indian, Bahn Mi, Thai, Vegetarian, Middle Eastern….I'm not picky

I can't drive, I got a permit in high school and it expired. "True New Yorker" in that sense. Because of my dependance on public transportation, ideally I'd like to meet people close to the NYC area.
I'm pretty horrible at speaking Spanish...I have relied on what little I remember from when I was 5 yrs old. I lived in PR then and had become fluent, but lost most of it when we moved back to NYC a year later. At least I never lost my accent!
As you can see I'm pretty much an open book!
Oh and I'm very serious about meeting. Even though there is plenty of eye candy on this site, I'm not just here to spectate. Everyone is busy nowadays but I'm more than willing to make the time for that special someone. If you have the same mindset then you should have messaged me like yesterday! LOL
