My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cuban salsa dancer, teacher, lover of the outdoors looking for my media naranja--someone who wants to go for a run around the Lake or in the East Bay hills, bike to Point Reyes for the weekend, camp out at a high Sierra lake, or just relax in the sun on my back deck. That's right, I'm looking for the real deal—a passionate, joyful, adventurous, healthy/active man, who can make me laugh and is excited about and ready for a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dance dance dancing, dodging lightning bolts on high Sierra ridges, listening to This American Life, riding bikes, planting tomatoes, running in the East Bay hills, drinking mojitos by the Lake, trying to convince my dog that I’m in charge, scheming up travel adventures to distant lands, educating and being educated. Oh, and basking in my two minutes of KQED fame.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dreaming big and finding a way to make it happen.
Making friends wherever I go.
Empathy
Languages. I speak French (in my sleep!) and Spanish in the day.
Making the best of any situation.
Being flexible.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dimples, since I laugh so much. Oh, and if it's an OKC date, I'm often told I look exactly like my profile photo, which apparently is an anomaly.
