Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In spite of - or maybe because of - my age, I'm not on here looking
for a life partner or someone to have kids with. If I meet someone
and that happens, I'm not opposed to that, but it's not why I'm on
here. What I'm looking for is someone to hang out with, and to
share an emotional and romantic connection with, whether for a
short or long term period.
So, now about me:
I love animals and nature, music, languages, history and almost
anything international. In relationships of any kind, a sense of
humor is probably the most important thing to me. I enjoy laughing
and connecting with people through humor. I love to travel, walk in
the woods, learn languages, teach, write (though haven't been doing
enough recently), spend time with family and eat good food.
I was raised in Philadelphia, but different cultures and people
from different parts of the world and experiences have always been
a significant part of my life. I am interested in history,
politics, languages, cultures, my own and others (my family
background is Texan and Lithuanian).
I do Lithuanian folk dancing, and speak Lithuanian, Spanish and
English, and some Portuguese/ Portunol. I am trying to learn
Arabic. I love to have intellectual and political conversations,
but I also like to hang out, have fun and not be serious.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hanging out with my nieces and nephews who live next door. Going to
Mummers' practice with my mom (she plays the accordion). Teaching
Lithuanian to adults of Lithuanian heritage. Looking for a job
teaching. Sometimes volunteering as an ESL teacher, and also being
involved in some political and social activism. Right now, I am a
reading support teacher for struggling readers in K-2 at a
Philadelphia charter school, but that position ends this month, so
I am searching again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing and finding humor (sometimes where no one else does :)),
learning languages, getting into discussions about politics (and
sometimes regretting it!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food?? Hmmm... many different kinds, but favorites are Indian,
Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, Mexican. Pizza, and hoagies
of course - I AM a Philadelphian.
Music - my all time favorites are Les Mis and Beethoven's 9th.
Other inspirational stuff like Josh Groban, etc. Springsteen. Also
ethnic folk music, Celtic, Latin, Arabic/ Middle Eastern, Indian,
country (hey my dad's from Texas!), international, and a weakness
for 80's soft rock. I like lots of other kinds, too - I always hate
Books - mysteries, some romance, historical fiction, memoirs to
name a few.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, laughter, food, music, languages and exposure to different
cultures, community, nature, travel
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at happy hour with co-workers or friends, or having Friday
Night club dinner and wine with my parents, aunt and other family
friends at local Mexican restaurant.
