My self-summary
Hi, I'm Amilcar - known to be a WWE fan, Transformers Enthusiast (G1), and destroyer of all things Peanut Butter.

I'm a short, sweet, and funny native New Yorican with a youthful personality and looking to date and take it from there. I'm a creative guy who has too many (nerdy) hobbies and am looking to find someone to take my attention away from them. I'm easy going and have a calm demeanor. A bit shy by nature, but also very open-minded and like trying new things. It's a way for me to get over my initial shyness and break that much more out of my shell. I do warm up quickly however and am an affectionate person...with a bit of "liquid courage" even more so...
What I’m doing with my life
I like pop culture and electronic gizmos and doo-dads. I'm also an arts and craftsy guy. I taught myself how to crochet, I make kitschy wallets out of duct tape, sometimes I sculpt figurines out of thermo-plastic pellets, and I'm great at complex origami models...the Lobster in Origami for the Enthusiast by John Montroll is my specialty. I also have an Esty page where I try to peddle my goods. I also cartoon from time to time and dabble a bit in photography.

I'n back in Boston after a 16 year hiatus in NYC. After spending way too many years in retail, I'm pursuing a new career in IT
I’m really good at
Arts and craftsy things

Cooking - I look at recipes for inspiration rather than as instructions.

Being diplomatic - I'm the peacekeeper amongst friends and family
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like my pictures! :-D I keep my pics current.
My smile.
My earrings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Fourth Bear, The Kane Chronicles( im forever stuck midway through the book), I recently bought The Hobbit too... I rarely read books....I should read more.

Movies: Anything by Almodovar and studio Ghibli/Miyazaki become my instant classics. I love comedies that range from the dry humor of Christopher Guest and his ensemble to the potty and political satire that South Park delivers. I do enjoy a good summer action blockbuster from time to time as well. Some other favorites: The Skin I Live In, 50/50, Bridesmaids, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, Margaret Cho, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Bad Education Art School Confidential, Transformers (1986), Blades of Glory, Harlem Nights, Nacho Libre, Mean Girls, Harry Potter, The Dark Crystal, Edge of Seventeen, I tried watching Sharknado and as campy and purposefully awful as it was I still could only get through the first 15 minutes.

TV: The Heart She Holler, Grimm, How to Get Away With Murder, Broad City, The Walking Dead, Total Divas, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones, Workaholics, Louie, Its Always Sunny in Philidelphia, Girls, Adventure Time, Merlin (BBC), The League, trashy tv like Millionaire Matchmaker and Maury Povich. Sometimes I'll catch myself mesmerized by the train wreck that is the Kathy Lee and Hoda hour of the Today Show. Recently my friends exposed me to the nerdgasm that is Dr. Who. I'm starting with Matt Smith era and working my way backwards.

Music: I like all music that I deem catchy....from Britney Spears to Foster the People to Ghostface Killah to Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Steel Panther to Remy Ma. Sorry country and death metal fans... I haven't caught on to those genres yet. Mayhaps you could change my mind?

Food: Mexican, Indian, Bahn Mi, Thai, Vegetarian, Middle Eastern….I'm not picky
The six things I could never do without
*My supportive friends and family
*A re-useable water bottle
*iOS hardware
*Comfortable work shoes
*Peanut Butter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Meeting you ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing and trying to catch up on my missed sleep. I keep early hours during the week (up by 6am, in bed by 10pm) and it takes it toll on me by the weekend. I'm just as happy and comfortable spending the day/night out with friends as I am chillaxing at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am currently living with a close friend and their family while I am back at school

I can't drive, I got a permit in high school and it expired. "True New Yorker" in that sense. Because of my dependance on public transportation, ideally I'd like to meet people close to the Boston metro area.

I'm pretty horrible at speaking Spanish...I have relied on what little  I remember from when I was 5 yrs old. I lived in PR then and had become fluent, but lost most of it when we moved back to NYC a year later. At least I never lost my accent!

As you can see I'm pretty much an open book!
You should message me if
I really appreciate that you took the time to read this far....maybe you didn't and just skimmed to here, but whatever had sustained your interest to this point, thanks. If you have any inkling to contact me, by all means do. I'm a very friendly guy and if you take the time to message me, I will at least extend the courtesy with a reply. I'm looking to meet new people, ideally for dates, but I'm also open to friendships if our personalities really click. Ultimately I'm monogamous and LTR minded, but not in a big rush to get there. Let's meet for something casual like cafe affair/lunch/or even a drink after work. Take some of the romantic pressure off and just see if our personalities gel.

Oh and I'm very serious about meeting. Even though there is plenty of eye candy on this site, I'm not just here to spectate. Everyone is busy nowadays but I'm more than willing to make the time for that special someone. If you have the same mindset then you should have messaged me like yesterday! LOL
