Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm a native Mexican who immigrated to Canada some years ago
to pursue a better life for myself. I'm now a permanent resident
currently attending university where I'm halfway through my 2nd
bachelor's degree in Translation. My first one is in IT, but now
I'm interested in pursuing a degree that'll allow me to have more
of a literary and social impact than working in IT would.
I'm fluent in English, French and Spanish. Additionally, I'm adding
Japanese to the mix because... why not?
What kind of girl am I looking for?
Someone that is well read, open minded, adventurous; willing to try
new things, and will change my world for the better just by knowing
her. A short order basically...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying for a translation degree and greatly enjoying all the work
that I do there.
Meanwhile, I'm constantly trying to improve as a person whether it
be cooking, swing/rockabilly jive dancing, Japanese learning and
myself through exercise (I go to the gym to lift 3 times per
week)... it's not about the goal but how you get there...
I'm also writing a stand-up comedy bit that I probably won't ever
finish or act out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking (see photos) usually it's Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Thai,
Indian or else whatever ingredients are on sale. I'm always down
for whipping up a new recipe.
Swing and rockabilly jive dancing... I don't know if I'm good, but
I practice often.
Retro video-games: I'm always playing old games in my cell phone
while on the metro, like Mario Kart and Tetris.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair and that I look younger than my actual age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The count of Monte-Cristo, The 3 Musketeers, 1984, the Harry
Potter series, Philip K. Dick books, H.P. Lovecraft stories, George
R. R. Martin's The song of fire and ice series (Game of Thrones for
the less geeky), and books of old advertisements (more details on
that obsession in person).
Movies: I like quirky movies such as those from Wes Anderson's
(especially Fantastic Mr. Fox) and Satoshi Kon (Millenium Actress).
Lately I've been on an pre-80's movie streak.
Music: Mostly Twee, alternative rock, 80's music, shibuya-kei
(Japanese music influenced by 60's French yé-yé music). From these
tastes THE SMITHS and PIZZICATO FIVE trump everything else.
Food: Everything that I make (well, almost everything)
TV: Archer, Gravity Falls, Avatar, Bob's Burgers, Steven Universe.
Also anime, but it has to have a unique and interesting enough
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-an oven (in which to cook)
-dancing (getting better every week)
-video games (well, I need distractions)
-books (reading is cool)
-art (in all its forms... except pottery, not a fan)
-gym (picking up heavy stuff and putting it down again is relaxing)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What new experiences or challenges I want to undertake in my life,
the problematic gender relations between men and women and how to
respect and not just objectify women one is attracted to, different
recipes to challenge my cooking skills, and unfamiliar artists to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably either out swing dancing, watching something on Netflix,
reading a nice book, hosting dinner for friends or playing video
games with friends. Certainly not in a loud place...
