My self-summary
This is, for sure is the most difficult part . I'll want to say that I intend to live my life treating others the same way I'll like to be treated.

LIFE IS not about
the breaths you take:
it is about the
that take your breath away.

I am originally from the Dominican Republic but have spent most of my life living in New York City ( 24 years), a place that I loved but decided to be a little closer to home and in a warmer, more tropical climate with the beaches and sunsets that I love. I consider myself a fun person to be around who dislikes conflict and drama and therefore will try to avoid it as much as possible. This is probably due to the fact that I grew up around older people in my younger days but I am a man who likes to keeps his word and is very high on manners and traditional values, integrity and class. The decline of the family, I believe is the most difficult challenge facing us today. I am yet very enthusiastic, funny, passionate, positive, outgoing, joyful, silly, caring, respectful, committed, emotionally and economically stable, compassionate, altruistic, generous----- the other half of me is very serious about my career and personal business. I consider myself very family oriented. Among my most desired goals at this moment of my life is finding a special person to share my life with, to be my best friend, companion and to take care of each other in every way. Last but not least, I have to admit it, I'm a lost romantic and can't help it. By the way, I really love to cook. Usually Latin but also some Italian.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm actually working for a government agency and I hope to go back to college soon since my mind is always craving to learn new things. In the mean time I'm always reading and trying to improve on my art. ( photography and painting) and learning new languages such as Italian and, hopefully, one day, Portuguese and French.
I’m really good at
Well, I like to be modest. People say some of my best qualities are that I'm a good cook, dancer (merengue, bachata, salsa), very positive and a good listener. I'm also dedicated, truthful, energetic and joyful. I also enjoy being around people and find it very easy to make friends wherever I go.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think, definitely, my smile. When it comes to the personality, I'm under the impression that people notice my positive attitude and appreciation, that I like to listen to others, that am an extrovert since I love meeting new people and learning new things constantly. I can be shy at times ( most people I know would not believe so but when intimate, I can really be at times) Once I get knot people better I, sometimes, like to tease them in a respectful manner. I love this famous phrase:
There are two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Don Quijote , Love In The Times Of Cholera, One Hundred Years Of Solitude, The Elemental Odes, One Hundred Love Sonnets, The Captains Verses, Twenty Love Poems And A Song Of Despair, Paula are some of my favorite books. Italian, pepper steak, red or black beans, white or yellow rice, pasta, shrimp, lobster are some of my favorite foods. I'm not really into junk food, I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle and I cook for myself most of the time. I must confess I m an ice cream maniac, but I stay away for the most part. My favorite movies are A River Runs Through It with Brad Pitt and Titanic. I really, really love dancing Merengue, Salsa and Bachata.
Six things I could never do without
Love, God, Friends & Family, Beauty and Optimism, Running, Laughter, Dancing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Improving myself, learning new things....... How I can help others less fortunate. Always aiming to do something fun and plan new trips and a better tomorrow.
On a typical Friday night I am
Many possibilities, out dancing, home cooking, watching a movie, running on the treadmill, with friends or just home relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm just like an open book, there isn't much to hide. Maybe that I'm on this site trying to find that someone special......
You should message me if
Besides the obvious attraction, someone who just loves life, likes to smile as hard and often and possible, love to listen to jokes or make her own or tease other people. Someone, above all positive, enthusiastic, adventurous who likes to travel, is fun to be around and romantic.
The two of us
