I, I, I, me, me, me...
I wouldn't normally write about myself like this but images only tell maybe 10% of a story. I'm very private but since girls read, and since I feel that what I receive in life is conversely related to how much effort I put into something....
I decided to be serious about this profile for 20 minutes.
I do want to find a soulmate in life. A friend first. I would like to connect with someone intelligent, charming, beautiful, and funny because these are qualities I was taught to value growing up.
I'm clever and resourceful.
I look young for my age.
I can't grow a full beard.
I use these things to my advantage.
I have a perpetual need
to be underestimated in life.
I feel everywhere I go I have to survive. I don't like being too comfortable. I think I am addicted to making things. Creating anything anywhere. Life is short.
I decided when I was 27 years old I was born to be an artist. I was always fearful before then because no one in my family nor generations before is artistic. I was never shown this path. I was convinced to follow art when I saw I sign in the sky. I was living in Cusco, Peru. It was a spectrum of light from heaven. I'm dead ass serious. I have pics. ( ))
I'm not naturally a super confident person.
I'm very introverted.
I'm quiet in groups.
Luckily I have a very charismatic switch inside me and also I'm a little bit crazy.
It's not hard for me to open up when I don't have to fight for attention
If I send u a message on here I'm either
Attracted to you
Think you're fascinating
Wanna work together
I'm not competitive with others. My goal in life is to use up all my potential and what I see in my head. My biggest competitor is myself. I can be a bit if a loner. I recognized early in life I don't like to follow others.
I've been in Ny almost for 2 years now. Prior to that I was living in Manila, Philippines as a commercial director for ads and music videos.
Currently in NY my taxes are collected from my job as English teacher. I requested less hours so I could spend my days wholly on creating and helping my long time friend start his record label. Album art, music videos, and shows are all in the cooker. ( ))
I'm very honest with people and about myself..sometimes to a fault. I love philosophy and truth. If I can't live by truth, I'm a hypocrite.
Looks are what initially attracts me but ultimately culture is what gives chemistry. I'm brown inside and out. I'll leave it up to u to determine chemistry.
I'm very picky. I think when I was younger I was very idealistic about Love and I put it on a pedestal, but at this point in my life, I see it's something you have to choose to build and cultivate. It's not this all pervasive, universal, divine force. It starts with me, you, and where we carry it everywhere we go.
I realize now the woman I'd want to be with relationship-wise must be strong and intelligent because I get bored. Looks don't last. Sounds harsh but it's true.
On the friendship-tip I'm very much open to anyone as long as you're soulful and are working hard towards something. When I say work hard I don't mean trying too hard.
I'm not a typical dude. Nobody around me is that typical either. Don't get me wrong, I can relate to normal things very much. I love basketball (Chicago Bulls), futbol (FC Barcelona), boxing, martial arts, taking care of my body and mind, animals, politics, social observation, hating, music, fashion, design, physics, metaphysics, Hiphop, jazz, etc. I also love the years 1967-1973 and 1992-1995.
Okay that's all.
