I'm described as an intelligent, warm, passionate, open-minded, supportive, compassionate person, with far leftist politics. I'm an artist, fine art, a painter, as well as an illustrator and graphic designer. I'm expressive and well traveled. I'm a parent to a wonderful 22 year old son, he is the most important person in my life, he is my heart. I am optimistic, idealistic, I think outside the box, but also very much a realist with minimal baggage stored away collecting dust. I've been told that I have a good sense of humor, (wry wit ) and when you get to know me I can be a bit silly. I'm athletic, I love to work out, have fun, take chances and explore. I'm far from perfect, just trying my best to be a good person/man. I'm a Spaniard, I was born in Madrid, Spain. My family emigrated to the US in the mid-1960's. I grew up not far from Manhattan, (sorry, I lost my Spanish accent a long time ago, but fear not, I do not have a New Yawk accent, whew....). I'm 5'8, with black hair (what's left of it, deep mournful sigh...) and brown eyes.
I am an Artist, Activist, and Father.

I don't like making lists. *I do not expect anyone to have ALL or most of the following traits. There are some traits that are important to me. I don't have a physical type, it is important to me that you are physically active, fit. I would love to meet an intelligent, kind, open-minded woman. A woman who has the strength to speak her mind, to stand up for what she believes in and also strong enough to be gentle and show great tenderness. She must be honest with herself and others, minimal baggage, with a quick wit, able to laugh at herself, monogamous, also someone who loves kids. A woman who cares about the planet, people, animals, who is athletic, highly sensual, sexual, a progressive/radical feminist, compassionate, and creative. Someone who thinks outside of the box. Also someone who can communicate, I believe that is key in any kind of relationship but also rare. I would love to meet a woman who loves the city.
I would love to meet a woman/comrade with whom I can make ART with, collaborate, create and cause trouble for the “MAN”.
I'm sorry, I will not reply to emails that only say “Hi”, or “Hey”, please put some effort into it, geeze...
I'm not interested in “serial daters”, nor “open relationships”. If you're still fawning over your ex, please don't waste my time or yours and the best of luck to you.
And what's with all those inane “Duckface” selfies?
Extra points if you like staying up late, sharing a crossword puzzle, talking on the phone, walking or running the loop in Central Park. It would be great if I could meet someone who would love to workout with me at the gym or at home. Someone who enjoys holding hands and loves watching old movies on TCM. And willing to share your favorite activities with me.
Above all, I'm hoping to meet someone who is truly interested in getting to know me and letting me get to know her. Someone who is emotionally, mentally balanced and ready for a long term happy, loving and passionate relationship.
Please be drug and Republican free...
