My self-summary
Hi, everybody,

Does anyone remember how it feels to be in love? you know: cuddles, "stolen" kisses, walks hand in hand, beautiful words and gestures shared by both, passion, fulfilling intimacy actually caring for togetherness? I'd certainly want to retrieve all that; hope there are great guys up there and you, the unique one, are just round the corner.
I, in turn, promise to love, trust and respect you, the way you deserve.

I am active, childlike, and romantic
What I’m doing with my life
Good evening
Feels like UK is tropical...Icecream man either lives on my street or comes here very often, so...I childishly take advantage. Hi hi :)
What's new in my life? Well, being fully qualified and fond of my job, opened up new opportunities for me. I've applied and already been selected to attend interviews for roles that pay a lot more than my current wages. It's my first set of applications for employed roles, so I am quite proud of myself. But you know what? I think I like rewarding myself in advance, so I had a wonderful weekend: attending a Latin festival and a dance party on the beach (West Wittering). It took us from 10:30 to 5pm to get to our destination, but we got there and the 3 remaining hours were spent having great fun. Any news from you?
Just a quick note- you see me always online, but I'm not, actually, I've just set my devices to keep certain pages open and this is one of them. That much I like and respect people on OKCupid, staff included.
People in London and everywhere let's all live in peace! Stop the killing! New deaths do not bring your beloved back. #liveinpeacenotjustrestinpeace
I care about fellow humans and want us all to be safe:

I've recently passed a very important exam - with full licence to practise, this is another step towards my goal: my own UK and international Talent Development company (long-term goal: 5 years). However, I believe in a work-personal life and health balance, have hobbies and am looking for a fulfilling relationship resulting in a happy family.
More reasons to celebrate- returned from a dream holiday (only it was real- Dominican Republic - some see it as poor, I could only see soul richness )
So, where are you? Read below, please, and let's find even more happiness together.
A friend in need is a friend indeed (or partner).
Very strange ad, but you are intelligent and you read between the lines:
Relationship over
Need boyfriend/ boy friend with car :)).
I am happy to invest in petrol, car parts, joint insurance. Any takers?
Sooner or later I'll start to drive, with or without male support. So, wouldn't you rather train me rather than avoid me, i.d. my driving on the street? :P
En serio: I am a driver, even had refresher courses in 2012, but not a confident one, need support, was too stressed (with exams and employment) to resume up to now and need to take it slowly. I plan to buy my own car, but don't have parking space atm. So, somehow this is a business/friendship or... else proposal. I want to grow, not regress.
Have just returned from holidays and it's all good.
I believe...in collaboration, rather than competition.
As a careers adviser, I advocate change and empathy, so I challenge you to be the change you want to see in the world.
I find it sexy when I see that chivalry is not dead and as a partner you agree to disagree, without offending.
It turns me on when you can debate on a subject without judging and thinking 'I need to win this'.
I am a garden decorator who believes in teamwork and evolution. In my garden I grow beautiful flowers and this garden would look even more harmonious when watered and nurtured by a team of two and a few cute little apprentices, later. These flowers have names and meanings in this garden of life: they are called respect, communication, mutual support and positive reinforcement, sense of humour, empathy, physical appearance, meaningful intimacy, communication, tact, patience, trust and sparks or butterflies. Watering the garden is important to me and the 2 main gardeners would either do it together, or, at least take turns, if there isn't enough water or one forgets. But if one forgets constantly and the other can't find the time, then, it is perhaps the moment to move on and take the surviving flowers with them, so that they grow beautiful in another fertile ground. Still, flowers shouldn't be ripped off, just patiently waited for until they are ready to come out and either be watered by the same caring gardeners or be transferred to another fertile ground.
I'm a bird and I'll fly the nest with no happiness, after unsuccessfully trying to save it if we both believe it's worthwhile, rather than cheat or offend.

I enjoy life: Life is long when it's meaningful and life is short when we're unhappy.

I spend time finding ways to inspire people and get inspired by them.
My friends describe me as reliable, fun to be around, dedicated, supportive, enjoying the journey to fulfilment, not just the outcome. I was told I am creative and can re-invent myself. I believe that finding a guy who does the same, yet remaining charming, playful and attractive, would suit me best.
I believe in people and in their ability to fulfil their potential, no matter where we come from.

I am keen on spending quality time with my partner, without suffocating each other. You will be close to my age; living in London (I have plenty of distance friends); emotionally stable and available, sociable, good looking, intelligent and with professional background, non-smoker or minding your oral hygiene after smoking...I will endeavour to be 'your perfect match', well, a suitable one, at least, and one of your most beautiful and positive life experiences.
I am calm and patient on the one hand, but also passionate and confident. The world of dance has taught me to be a follower and a leader . It offers both tension and connection. You should try it, too. I dance and I love it, am very passionate and apply this in real life, when needed, too. But not only that...it has taken me to another level, where we meet and dance in the park, have picnics and go to the barbecues of those involved on their birthday or just because....we are a big Latino family.
But before we get to this point, let's just be friends. I have my lifestyle and you have yours. The first step would be to accept we are two people, not one, and we shouldn't try to change a partner to suit one's needs. Neediness in a relationship is hardly a good thing....
How can I put this? I'm not very religious, but I am a Christian and this is how I wish to remain. I'm not saying any religion is better than the others, and I know it may be primitive to some for me to say 'I believe in God', may He/She be called Jesus, Budha, Allah, Ra or just the Universe. For this reason, I would prefer someone from my own country, or, at least with a Latin/Eastern European background or a penchant to them, but who envisages his future in the UK. I would also see that person, not only as a partner, but a good friend.

Enjoy life, no matter what: from what I hear, nobody has ever got out alive from it. :)
I am into sharing good humour, too. We're only human...so let's give this a funnier side.

You've been patient enough to read this, so here's your prize: some "true" jokes-oldies, but goldies:
LOVE, AFFAIRS AND REVENGE

A woman comes home and says to her husband, "Remember all the headaches I've had in recent years? Well, I no longer have them. "
'No more headaches?' husband asks, 'What's happened?'
His wife responds: 'One of my friends recommended me a hypnotist ... He told me to stand in front of a mirror, stare at myself and repeat 'I have no
headache, I have no headache, I have no headache. ' And it worked! Headaches are gone .. '
The husband replied, 'Well, this is amazing.'
Then his wife said to him, 'You know, you have not really been a' macho 'in bed in recent years. 'Why don't you go to the hypnotist and see if he can help you in this matter? '
Husband agreed to try.
After the appointment, the husband comes home, tears off his clothes, picks up his wife and takes her to the bedroom. He puts her on the bed and says to her: 'Do not move, I'll be right back.' He goes into the bathroom, comes back after a few minutes, jumps on the bed and makes passionate love to his wife as he had not done before.
His wife is amazed, 'Honey, that was wonderful!' The man says 'Do not move, I'll be right back.' He returns to the bathroom, stays there for a few minutes, returns to the bedroom and round two was even better than the first time. His wife remains dizzy and ecstatic.
The man tells her again, 'Do not move, I'll be right back.' And returns to the bathroom. This time, his wife quietly follows him and there, in the bathroom, she sees him standing in front of the mirror and repeating: 'She's not my wife. She is not my wife. She is not my wife ...! '
Note
The man's burial and funeral will take place tomorrow.

...........................................................

A married man was having an affair with his secretary. One day they went to her place and made love all afternoon. Exhausted, they fell asleep and woke up at 8 PM.
The man hurriedly dressed and told his lover to take his shoes outside and rub them in the grass and dirt. He put on his shoes and drove home.
'Where have you been?' his wife demanded.
'I can't lie to you,' he replied, 'I'm having an affair with my secretary. We had sex all afternoon.'
She looked down at his shoes and said: 'You lying bastard! You've been playing golf!'

....................................................................................................

A middle-aged couple had two beautiful daughters but always talked about having a son.
They decided to try one last time for the son they always wanted. The wife got pregnant and delivered a healthy baby boy. The joyful father rushed to the nursery to see his new son. He was horrified at the ugliest child he had ever seen.
He told his wife: 'There's no way I can be the father of this baby. Look at the two beautiful daughters I fathered! Have you been fooling around behind my back?'
The wife smiled sweetly and replied: 'Not this time!'

....................................................................................................

A man walked into a cafe, went to the bar and ordered a beer.
'Certainly, Sir, that'll be one cent.'
'One Cent?' the man exclaimed.
He glanced at the menu and asked: 'How much for a nice juicy steak and a bottle of wine?'
'A nickel,' the barman replied.
'A nickel?' exclaimed the man.. 'Where's the guy who owns this place?'
The bartender replied: 'Upstairs, with my wife.'
The man asked: 'What's he doing upstairs with your wife?'
The bartender replied: 'The same thing I'm doing to his business down here'
....................................................................................
So, my life is sweet and full and will be only sweeter and fuller with a wonderful man –you? Believe me, if you are the right man, I will make life sweeter for you every day and every night. We are here to enrich and celebrate each other. Let’s explore and enjoy and play and see what wonders we can create together.
I’m really good at
Whether I am good or not, I experiment: food- eating and creating, natural beverages, group activities and workshops and have been told I can be exceptional with just a bit of support (perhaps in your company :P )

-I'll let you discover the rest :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the 'petite mignonne' type, frail and delicate...but that is just 'at first sight' :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: "Great Expectations"-Ch. Dickens - all times favourite, as it can be seen as a buildungsroman, social fresco, crime story, love story, psychological analysis.
"Les Miserables" - V. Hugo

Films: ''Operator'', "Before Sunset", new liking, though oldie "Breakfast at Tiffany's", "Pay It Forward", "21", "The Social Network", "The Accidental Tourist"..."Now You See Me"
Healthy food of all cultures
Ballet: I've seen 'The Swan Lake', 'The Nutcracker' and 'Romeo and Juliet'
Plays: 'Great Expectations', 'The Canterbury Tales', 'The 39 Steps'...

Musicals: I've seen 'Les Miserables', 'The Lion King', but have yet to watch 'The Phantom of the Opera'.
Music: Latino, reggae, reggaeton, classical, rock, pop, hip-hop...a selection of all sorts except for "no message and logic" ones
Favourite singers and bands: Frank Sinatra, Cesaria Evora, Celia Cruz, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Natasha Bedingfield, The Corrs. The Cranberries, Dido, Eminem, Shakira, Keo, Mandinga, Guess Who, Robbie Williams ,Snow Patrol, Don Omar and many others.
I lovebachata and Latino dance and music in general.
I've been doing it for more than 3 years now, though not as intensively, and it still feels great.
Interests: miscellaneous:P
The more the merrier...from dancing (latin, R' n'B, etc, sorry,not into house and loud rock- ballads are the exception) to classical concerts and ballet, musicals, theatre, festivals...anything and not necessarily expensive activities, just fun...
I suppose, if in good company, I could try anything once, twice, but no more than 3 times in a row...otherwise it's called routine, isn't it?
I prefer walks in the park, eating a sandwich or salad take-away when hungry, rather than fancy restaurants and loud, vulgar pubs.
I like group activities: bowling, pool or skating, not because I'm good at them, but because I enjoy them and enjoy the company.
Six things I could never do without
water, fire, earth, love, family and friends. (In this order).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-how beautiful life is and how it would be even more meaningful when people would link actions to consequences;

-daily business and activities, though I prefer <<acting on them>>, as well;

-how routine turns us into machines and how we go through it 'not taking ourselves too seriously' rather than exerting change;

-love and how to share and spread it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Occasionally I like going out to social events, especially outdoors and going out with friends.
I also spend time:
-staying in- reading or watching a movie, some TV broadcast (on the internet)
-taking care of/ pampering myself
Unless we make exciting plans together, I reserve time to go out on Saturday and Sunday, mostly, but you can also find me taking Salsa, Kizomba and Bachata classes and practising dance moves in London's various dance venues.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not a 'potato couch', nor am I a party animal. You can have fun without falling under the table or being collected off the street. Nothing wrong with spending some time indoors and cuddling, but unless I work I prefer keeping active. There will be time to sleep later, now the Universe is moving and I won't be left behind.
I don't own a TV set.
I love cooking healthily and simplifying recipes...but only with you, under your direct 'supervision'. (Remember "Nine weeks and a half "? If not, watch it! You'll presently see what I mean. :P)
You should message me if
What really turns me on is an intelligent man that can read between the lines and can start/respond to and finish a conversation in a proper and respectful manner :)
