ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Some of the profiles here seem a bit like job applications, with a dash of perfectionism and ambivalence thrown in. The second and third photos were taken this year, 2014. I like the first picture, taken last year, the best.

My self-description: I'm strong, warm, and gentle. I work hard and try to enjoy life and would like a female complement. My life is quiet and I try to be productive. If you'd rather read a book than watch TV, and would rather see movies on the big screen instead of the tube, better. Most of the movies I see are at the Laemmles.

Movies I've enjoyed recently included PHILOMENA and THE INVISIBLE WOMAN (Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens and the woman he had a relationship with after separating from his wife, a tragedy, but a beautiful one.)

Employed for 31 years, mostly in child protective services. Now I work on things which matter to me, like fitness, improving my Spanish and normalizing US-Cuba relations. My father and his parents lived in Cuba during World War II. Born (and conceived) in the U.S., I have long been involved with Cuba. I spent November 2013 to February 2014 there.

Match is very positive-oriented. It doesn't ask for dislikes, but I have a few: racism, sexism, homophobia and petty bickering. Also movies with lots of violence and driving a lot in LA lately. Politically, I'm a leftist. So if you think NPR and the NY TIMES are great news sources, we're not likely to get along. Yet I can also laugh at my own foibles, too.

Let me be direct: I really LIKE women. Most of my friends are female. But if you call yourself a lady, I wonder if you will alight from a carriage when we meet? To me, the one who opens the door should be the one who gets to it first, especially if the other one is carrying groceries. I'm happy to drive, but it's fine if you drive. Anyway, I open doors for people all the time. It's a helpful and nice thing to do.

The most important quality in a restaurant isn't the FOOD, but the QUIET, so we can talk. I can and do often cook at home. I started cooking at 6, living with my dad, a single father. For fitness, I like taking long walks and sometimes practice yoga at home where I have the needed props. If you live in L.A., we could talk, meet, and see if there's more. I live in Silverlake and like to walk around the reservoir. Sometimes I walk to the market and carry my groceries home. Not to save money (My 98 Honda Accord, bought new, has barely 100,000 miles on it), but to get away from the computer.

Every day I'm highly conscious of and deeply grateful for the many good things in my life. Some came by accident, others by my efforts. One nice thing about retirement is when I feel like doing nothing, I can do just that. Or just lay around in bed and read a book, or listen to a recorded book.

I'd love to meet someone here in L.A. who has her own projects and passions, and with whom to share some interests, passions, activities and time together. I don't believe there's one soulmate somewhere in the universe and, if only I could find her, all would, like magic, be well. I think more about two people at a similar point, and with not-incompatible values, who want to explore and build a friendship, and perhaps more, together.

Does this sound like what you want? If any of this resonates, please write. I will respond. If not, good luck to you. As my Spanish-speaking friends say: No es facil. Pero, mejor estar solo que mal acompanado (Translation: It isn't easy. But it's better to be by yourself than in bad company.)
-----------
p.s., the child I mention isn't mine biologically. When I met his mom, he was 5, and when she and I separated, he and I didn't, with her enthusiastic support. He's now 42. His mom and I are great friends, a modern family. He's recently married (for the first time) and I drove up to the Bay Area for the wedding.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Since I'm neither Cuban nor Cuban-American, it makes more sense to say that I'm an American-Cuban. Would like a native Spanish-speaker, but if the other things work out to our mutual satisfaction, that's not decisive.

Faith:
Atheist
Atheist

My attitude toward religion: I'm an atheist and, God willing, I always will be... I'm not militant about my atheism, either. If you believe in God, I won't argue with you over it. What would be the point?

You should be a good person, OK?
