ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

"...This world's no blot for us,
Nor blank; it means intensely, and means good:
To find its meaning is my meat and drink."
Robert Browning
Fra Lippo Lippi

I began with the above quote because I really believe it embodies my philosophy about life. I am the eternal optimist who is on a tireless journey to self improvement and self awareness through constant and consistent self analysis.

Teaching is not just a job for me; it is a calling. I was born in Mexico and learned English as a second language. Presently, I teach English at a high school with an 80% Hispanic population where I am instrumental in changing a culture for parents and students to help our kids stay in school and guide them to higher education. I believe I have a responsibility, a duty, to help those who are less fortunate than me. The men I meet have to at least be able to intellectualize this part of me and support me in that.

I have two daughters, 18 and 20, a senior in high school, and my 20 year old going in her sophomore year at TAMU--Honor's Program in Engineering. They are a very important part of my life, for they teach me to love unconditionally.

I am very passionate and extract every drop of nectar from life. I laugh loudly and crack myself up all the time. I live each day like there is no tomorrow. I am affectionate to a fault. I love to cuddle up, to hold hands, to kiss. I love living and always find the good in life.

I’m looking for a friend, who may become my best friend, and possibly my partner. I sincerely believe that it is not easy to jump into a relationship without the basis of friendship. I have my criticisms about on-line dating services. I think it has the potential to move people too quickly into a committed relationship.

Having said that, the ideal man for me is one who is driven, has clear goals for his life, has a great sense of humor and a good sense of self, sees life as a field of experiences to learn from, is open minded, shows affection (wants to cuddle up on the couch while watching a romantic comedy or a horror flick), allows me to be my own person. If I’m staying late at school calling parents, and I don’t get home until after 7:00PM, he understands that my job is not just a job, that it is something deeper within me. But I think that most importantly, my ideal man loves my family like his own, loves me and all my idiosyncrasies (and they’re many:) and is not afraid to show it.
