I am a funny, creative, caring, free spirited,passionate, expressive, chatty but a good listener, and energetic...I am also a clutz who runs into things daily while walking or you could just say I have dancer feet. I used to dance, act, and sing. However, my life as a performer took a turn when I moved to New York from Minneapolis. I loved acting,but I also like stability. :) I recently finished my masters in education and am loving all the down time. I also love my job teaching Theater. I am able to use my acting background and Spanish along with my nurturing side with the children. I teach at a dual language school in Spanish and English. One thing to know: I may teach, but by no means does that make me a morning person. when I don't have to work, I enjoy sleeping in to 11 or later :). I live in Manhattan and truly love the city. Of course, my apt. is mad small, but I love being in walking distance from midtown, central park, and union square. I am pretty centrally located and have access to many subway lines :) My friends and family are precious to me. I am a very social person and love conversations and meeting new people. ON my days off, I usually eat out with friends or see a movie, shop, walk around the city,watch tv, do yoga, but I'm always up for something new. I am looking to date somebody who has got their life together, knows what they want, and is educated. Honesty, humor, charm, creativity, and a trusting nature are some important basic qualities I look for. I'm usually physically attracted to men with slender bodies and somewhat in shape. However,I don't really care for body builders or gym junkies. I also think it's a little ridiculous to post photos of your bare upper bodies to advertise yourself on a dating site;it appears to overshadow the intelligence you may have,even more so if your lips are pouting...lol. I tend to be interested in attractive men who smile and emit a hint of charm in their photos. If you can make me laugh and show a playful nature, that's a plus. One thing I would like to be clear about, if you can't hold a conversation on both silly and serious topics, or even just getting to know you questions; we will definitely not be a match; Interpersonal and social skills must be well developed. I also am a little old fashioned and I prefer men who can take the initiative. Although, I'm not all that shy and can initiate as well. :) I am hoping to date, and if things go well, maybe there is a chance to move into a serious/ exclusive relationship.
