A little about me...
I am a 51 year old Hispanic (don't speak any Spanish though) male. I teach reading and English and am finishing up a credential for Library Media Teacher. I don't drink, don't smoke and have never experimented with drugs. I don't judge others in these areas though.
I am a guy who listens and people often come to me when they want to talk about a personal problem. I have many interests including reading, weight training, dance, writing fiction, martial arts, the sciences, health and longevity,and cooking.
I have been told I am a "manly nerd". I do some of the real guy stuff like lift weights, practice martial arts, watch UFC, bar-b-que, and drive a muscle car but I also am a sci fi fan, read comics (or as they say now, graphic novels), still love cartoons and anime. I also enjoy having high level discussions about history, science, religion, and politics with my friends, who can more than hold their own.
I try to attend the theatre in LA a few times a year and I dance most weekends. I like concerts and most music including Big Band, Jazz, Country, Classical, Classic Rock, Blues, Salsa and anything you can dance to. I even play a little guitar but only chords. All of the new photos are recent for 2014.
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to find a woman who is slim and/or athletic (or just looks in good shape), intelligent, a good communicator, honest, believes in commitment, has a career, and it would be great if she loves to dance. She must have a picture or pictures in her profile. It shows a confidence in who you are for better or worse. I will not reply to anyone without a picture.
I'd just like to add...
I am a voracious reader and avid movie fan. If I had to think of one word to describe myself it would be "diverse". I try to improve myself, to become a better person and live a good life as a conscious effort. I like nice things and can make personal sacrifices to get what I want out of life. I have a strong belief that people are essentially good but that trust is earned over time.
I believe that good relationships require effort, time and a certain amount of compromise. I believe in love but recognize that communication, trust and honesty are just as important if a relationship is going to succeed. I supose I am a romantic at heart but I have to let the realist in me make some decisions these days. I know it takes a certain ineffable something that makes people come together in love, but I also know that to make anything work takes honesty, compromise, listening and effort.
I try to improve myself mentally, physically, and as a person. My life is really pretty good over all. I hope to find a terrific woman to share this great experience called life.

My Top Interests:
I enjoy working out and like to learn new physical activities. I am familiar with a variety of martial arts, fence, shoot, can play tennis a little, bike, and love to dance.
Besides being a teacher and librarian, I consider myself a life long learner. I am always teaching myself new things such as how to crack a bull whip or teaching myself about investing so I could control my own financial destiny. I enjoy doing research and reading for information and pleasure.
This includes things like plays, music, movies, books and dance performances. It also includes fine dining as I see the cooking as an art and cooking itself. I always feel a sense of accomplishment when I create a good meal.
