My self-summary
Travel with me and laugh at my crappy Spanish (if too long go down to the bottom questions)

I hear the online dating world is really tough on you ladies so I’m going to try to make it easier for you.

Thanks to a hilarious date where there was zero mutual chemistry but she was a great girl, I learned about these 5 love languages. I know what mine are (Touch and Quality Time) and I can communicate to you in whatever yours are. Hey, at least I know what they are, right?

See things are a little easier already. Also, I’m not looking just to bang. Really. I’m not.

I’m looking for a certain type but it’s not physical. It’s an attitude, an air about you, a way of being. I have physical likes as everyone does but I’m not one of those ‘only date blue eyed blonde’ types although you blondes are more than welcome to say hi. I like all the hair colors equally. Ethnicities too. I’m pluralistic like that...

I’m a toucher (see above) and a hugger. With me there’s no coldness or only wanting a hug when wanting to have sex. My closest chick friend of 20 years who is like a sister to me uses the word warm to describe me and she would know. And I fight fair. And I’ll likely hug you when we meet for the first time, unless you ask me not to cause then that would be creepy.

Travel is a big part of who I am and what I want to be in the future. Travel to me means stamps in my Passport. Having one already or willingness to get one if you don’t have it yet are very important to me.

Travel to me means inability to sleep the night before cause I’m so excited to go to a country I’ve never been to before, experience something new and (likely) in a new language. Travel to me means exploring my 2 favorite types of destinations: Cities and Beaches, sometimes together and sometimes separate. It means going to what is generally my favorite part of the world, Latin America. I’m open to other parts of the world too as there’s much I haven’t seen yet…

Here are a couple questions that will make it even easier to see if we might be compatible. I have to say compatible rather than get along cause I get along with nearly everyone and find everyone has a story to tell.

Does the idea of going to another country excite you?
Are you affectionate?
Do you speak another language or want to learn?
Do you like sports? I like college basketball, football and English Premier League soccer
Do you like beer? I brew my own as a hobby and drank craft beer before it was called craft beer. You don’t have to love it too but it would be fun if you did…

Lastly, does the idea of living in another country for part of the year sound appealing to you? I am working to put a plan together to spend some of the year here and some of the year overseas. If you answer Yes to this question then you absolutely should say hello.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me and I'll tell you
You should message me if

the idea of very frequent travel or living in another country is in your long term plans or at least you are open to it

you are the cute girl next door type (I love that)

you like hanging out over a drink or two and conversing on lots of different topics
