If you want to get a better idea of who I am just add me on Facebook. Most of the stuff I have here is already on there and probably more up to date: http://facebook.com/carlosvalencia
I hug on the first date.
Whenever possible I like watching Jeopardy with my mom. Like a fuckin gangsta. #thuglife
If we're more than an 80% Match then I probably didn't read your profile and am just assuming you're awesome. If we're less than a 30% Match or more than 40% Enemies then there's probably something seriously wrong with you and you're a bad person.
I'm looking for a woman that will either jump on top of me and start fucking me in public the moment they see me, or one that will meet me at a chapel and start our date by getting married. Nothing in between.
If you ever find yourself wondering whether I'm kidding or not, odds are I'm kidding. The only thing I take seriously is comedy.
In case you missed it, "starving artist" is a romanticized way of saying "broke motherfucker". Which doesn't mean I expect anybody to buy me lunch, I just ain't paying for yours... wait, ladies, where are you going??
Also people tend to think I'm either Amish or Jewish because of the hat, facial hair, and the fact that I often wear dark clothes. I'm neither. I just like hats, don't shave often, and own a lot of dark clothes. It might look like I'm going to a funeral, but if you'd seen as many jokes die as I have, you'd be wearing black all the time too.

I'm a night owl and don't often have to be up early so I prefer hanging out on weeknights (Sun-Thurs). Less crowds = Less douchebaggery.
Just because I'm not looking for a long term relationship doesn't mean I only want to fuck. I probably won't be able to sustain an erection if we can't even sustain a conversation.
If you want to meet up for a drink.
Also, odds are I won't message you because I am incredibly intimidated by your smashing good looks. If I do message you though it's probably because I've been drinking and the alcohol has overtaken my intimidation. I will however reply to any messages sent my way regardless of who sends them. I like women that aren't afraid to make the first move.
Also, it's ok to just say "Hi" even if you haven't read my whole profile. I don't mind getting to know people through conversation. You know, like humanity has been doing for the last 10,000 years.
