ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I have been told I'm very intense. I feel completely comfortable in a heated/awkward conversation, I'm very direct, I drink my liquor straight, and I don't play games (except for roulette :) ). I like men who are "a little rough around the edges' but also intellectually stimulating, and solid (emotionally). Travel and income will not impress me, but your brain and heart just might.

I teach English as a Second Language to adults. I am very committed to my students. Grammar, language, and cross-cultural understanding are passions. I work with a lot of refugees and displaced people so having an extremely open mind and heart is 100% necessary. On the same note, I'm underpaid and overworked, but that's the nature of the business. I have previous incarnations as a non-profit worker/activist/organizer. I'm very much a 'do-er': I talk my talk AND walk the walk. I also have been working in Chiapas, Mexico as a volunteer for 15 years now (and counting).

I am Portuguese-American (Madeira Islands) and part Spanish. I look very Portuguese - black hair, short and stocky, Moorish features, and I also look a lot younger than I am (most people think I'm 30). I have a lot of family in the bay area (hundreds of cousins, yup) as us Portagee folks tend to stay with our peeps.

My life has not been easy, so I have a real negative edge that comes out sometimes. I'm used to busting my butt to get my minimal needs met and therefore I have a really hard time relating to folks who've had it a bit easy. My heart is gold and while I've 'got them smarts' I've preferred to focus my life on giving all I've got to others. At the same time I'm not out to please anybody,

Personality type: INTJ. Otherwise known as 'the mastermind.' My brain is constantly analyzing things and really never, ever stops processing. Honestly, it's quite common for me to lesson plan until late at night, and then when I finally go to sleep I continue lesson planning in my dreams. No kidding. I wake up and write it all down, and continue on with my work. Uber-efficient. Needless to say, I'm phenomenal at Sudoku and anything involving logic (you should see my GRE score in logic - holy mama).

I am looking for a man who knows exactly what he's doing with his life, has no plans of leaving the bay area ever (unless you're interested in moving to Portugal), is extremely stable and level headed. I don't mind baggage so long as you know you've got it and are willing to deal with it. I like a man who keeps himself busy, has his own set of projects and interests. The word 'boredom' does not exist in my life and I don't understand people who have 'nothing to do.'

My life is very focused on work and home (I own my home). I try to find time to play, and at that I'm pretty easy to please. While I can throw on heels and dress to the nines I can also put on my sweats and go camping, or just stay home and watch shows on netflix. I like to garden and get my fingernails dirty as much as I like eating out.

Yes, I want kids. If you don't want kids, don't bother contacting me. (If you want the 14 passenger van full - contact me right away.)

There are so many profiles on here that all sound the same, like, "Hey, I love Vegas and Napa!" I don't care that you work out, like to snowboard in Tahoe, and are into fine dining. I want to know what's in your heart. Tell me your issues, your passions. I want a man who knows exactly his place in this world and exactly what his missing partner's qualities are. This is marketing, right? Unfortunately, 99% of the emails I get on here simply say, "Hey, nice smile beautiful." Really? Do you think that's all it takes to win a lady over? Give me meat, some depth, stir my intellect, SOMETHING.
