Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You are invited to examine and consider the dossier of a colorfully
charismatic, monogamy-friendly, QRM (quality relationship material)
certified, housebroken, employed heterosexual male. Friends and
family will NEVER describe me as shy or a wallflower, but they will
also affirm I never steal anybody’s thunder nor put anybody in my
shadow. Mom has blessed me with her coveted Puerto Rican genetics,
Dad with his engaging persona and my sisters with their parental
What am I looking for? The short version is one (just one!) reason
to unsubscribe from this website and give up dating for good. The
long version is I’m crazy attracted to the four “C’s” - confidence,
classiness, culturedness and confidence (did I mention confidence?)
mixed with healthy side orders of the two “I’s” - intelligence and
independence. Men intimidated by these virtues are clinically known
as "knuckle-dragging Neanderthals" (I looked it up), but I heartily
embrace those qualities because they make an unexcelled elixir when
combined with sensual femininity and a warming heart. I am a devout
sapiosexual (i.e., attracted to intelligence), so knowledge that
eclipses my own would grab and hold my attention. I want her to
humble me in a way that makes me legitimately appreciate her
intellect and approach to conversation. I could really fall hard
for someone who has gone through her own trials or tribulations and
come out on top as a better person. It's a real test of
My goal is to lock down a girl that gets along with my friends
because they can see through the BS that I may not see if I'm too
infatuated. If she can sway my boys and they eventually tell me,
'Dude, she's pretty cool,' (without any prompting), I would
definitely call it a win. If she receives a dollar's worth of
smartassness (that word I made it up) from me or my friends, she
will dish out three in return - not a bad return on investment. She
wants to upgrade from "I" to "us", is willing to take reasonable
risks to find her happiness, allows her dreams to become mine as
well and is comfortable in social settings. Her sense of humor is
not afraid to “bite back” when challenged and her mischievous smile
alone will effortlessly lure me into her arms...hubba, hubba! Her
physical attractiveness may "get her in the door", but her keen and
ebullient mind will "keep her in the house". Writing of physical, I
am a strong advocate for fitness and health - I eat everyday, so I
exercise everyday. She may be a modern girl able to “leap tall
buildings in a single bound” but she appreciates her doors being
opened, hand holding, random acts of chivalry, actual conversation
over texting (nomophobics need not apply) and a good foot rub after
a long day (signed waiver required). These words don't mean my
heart is "ripe" and ready to be picked - it has to cultivated and
nurtured, just like yours. This is not a tall order...if you have
"The Goods". To summarize, she will be the one to bring fire to my
heart, a challenge to my mind and an oasis for my soul.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It's the simple things that I enjoy most - running on a beach at
sunrise, children's laughter, collaborating on a meal then enjoying
it outdoors, creating art for family & friends, a cold beer on
a hot day, etc. Sure, I like an occasional night out to take in a
stage production, an art show, a cultural event, or crash a wedding
(true!), but those excursions are always more memorable when they
can be reflected upon later with my co-conspirator. If you like to
“shake your moneymaker” as much as I do, then we might get along ok
(wink, wink!). Just as fulfilling is being in the same room as her
and reading respective books or cooking her favorite meal. Nothing
surpasses one-on-one quality time…the best "love language". The
near-forgotten art called "being a gentleman" is alive, well, and
in no danger of becoming extinct with this guy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Walking...while chewing gum...in the dark...without
-Eating dark chocolate.
-Learning about other cultures and languages.
-Picking out accents and nationalities.
-Being a cool uncle.
-Creating furniture from repurposed material (my "art").
-Singing really, really badly in the shower...even worse in
-Long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days (bonus
points if you can name the flick WITHOUT GOOGLING IT!).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is how my right arm is 6" shorter than my left - it was a
requirement to learn and teach shorthand. Not really.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a political thriller junkie, so if you've wasted an entire
weekend binge-watching "House of Cards", you're my girl. My
favorite authors are Orestes Lorenzo, Vince Flynn, John J. Nance
and Dick Marcinko. My formative years were in Puerto Rico, so salsa
and merengue are both preferred music and dance genres. I'm
allergic to food that does not taste good. As for the cinema I'm
more of a director fan - it's challenging to find very subtle
commonalities in a director's resume, regardless of the body of
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This one's easy:
1) a creative mind,
2) ethnic food,
3) exercise gear,
4) my girl (when I find the right one),
5) a red velvet cake,
6) the beach, and
7) my girl...with a red velvet cake...on the beach.
Is that more than six? Whatever - mathodology was never my best
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Where did I put my *&$#% keys?
-Which girl will motivate me to drop my
-Do green M&M's really do that?
-Will I get cuter with the more you drink?
-International travel - I hear there's an IHOP in Snellville...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not thinking about who to be with, but whom I'd like to be with all
day Saturday and Sunday...that or defrosting my microwave oven.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not the kiss-and-tell type - even if you kiss me I won't tell.
Well - maybe...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you're relationship-oriented, confident, and not emotionally
constipated because I will not waste your time (and definitely not
mine) with sophomoric antics nor adolescent immaturity. I know
you're tired of kissing frogs because I'm tired of kissing
frogettes, ya feel me? If you can make me laugh, I'll wash your
windows. If you make me laugh hard, I will wash your mother's
windows. My hope is you've become intrigued and I will assume you
are serious about finding someone special. If you've read this far,
I know I have your attention and if you're confident enough to
initiate contact or respond to my inquiry (there's that confidence
thing again), you know what to do next. Will you be the girl I ask
for a second date?
