People would describe my personality as an explosion of humor and fun that encompasses a full array of light-heartedness, savvy sarcasm, quick-witted banter, entertaining, whimsical comedy, canny satire, facetious joking, clever knee slapping, slapstick, amusing, and if I get on a role stomach hurting/floor rolling. My friends would describe me as an absolute clown because I am always laughing and having a good time; psychologists agree that being the last born equates to being a complete nut. Putting all of that aside I will be as direct as possible.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, kayaking, rollerblading, swimming.... Working out consistently and often is a must. Reading, playing every and any sport, watching movies with good drama, visiting museums, and dining are activities I enjoy. My biggest passion is dancing. I have been dancing for years and enjoy everything from Salsa, Cumbia, Bachata, Merengue, and Tango. I am in the process of expanding my abilities to be great at culinary activities.

I realize that I am single because I am selective. Personally I believe that if a man is self-confident and selective there is no room for dishonesty, disloyalty, distrust, or even having wandering eyes or wandering thoughts. Being decisive ensures absolutely no reason in the world to look elsewhere when the most amazing person is in front of you. Communication is important. I genuinely enjoy talking about your interests. Listening to things you are passionate about is a treat. Good chemistry is also meaningful. Educational attainment, personal goals, career ambitions, lifestyle objectives, self-confidence, and selflessness are all pluses.
Family is very important to me. I make it a point to be present at all my family celebrations such as birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other special occasions. I attend services regularly and although I have my own thoughts on things I find it quite soothing, relaxing, and obviously spiritual.
With respect to future goals, I am confident and extremely ambitious. I started a highly successful Real Estate business some years back and expect to continue to expand. The focus of my graduate studies was Real Estate Investments and Finance. I work full time, I own and operate my business, I make money for investors in a private hedge fund, and I oversee an equity portfolio in securities. The truth is I enjoy sharing wealth rather than acquiring it because of the significant impact on the lives of other people and the world.
One day I would like to begin a foundation that provides a safe haven to victims of human trafficking which includes forced labor, violence against women and children, child enslavement and prostitution, and women enslavement and prostitution. There are many contributions to be made to society. I volunteer/tutor/mentor at the Boys and Girls Club.

It does not matter to me where you reside, initially. First, someone special is almost never going to be located in your back yard. Second, the relationship would start with getting to know one another anyway and technology is an advantage. Third, distance apart forces significant effort, maturity, trust, and quality of time together. Fourth, many friends I know have met while on vacation, on a plane, or in another country. Lastly, if the relationship gets serious AND if you prefer to remain proximate to your family/friends/work I can acquire a home close to you anywhere in the world.
Chivalry: At the age of six my sister scolded me for walking on the inside of a sidewalk with her. She explained why a gentleman should always walk on the outside of the street while accompanying a lady and how incredibly disrespectful it is not to. The direct translation to her explanation of that action is that "a man never allows a lady to be sold to the street". I sometimes wondered if it is a cultural thing but regardless it was the last time that occurred. In addition to the pimping connotation, there is a safety/protection element such as a reckless car, vicious animal, stray bullet, any disturbance, or altercation. Finally, a situational courtesy such as I'd rather be splashed than allow any water to contact the dress, shoes, legs, or feet of a lady on my watch/care.
In addition, I will open doors, hold a chair for you to sit, hold an umbrella for cover, provide my suit coat for warmth, etc. I do shut off my phone to respect you when we are together and so you can have all of my undivided attention. When not in your presence I still give up my seat in the train for children, women, elderly, or disabled. At baseball games, I give up caught home run balls or foul balls to any youngster around me.

Hopeless Romantic: Anniversaries, birthdays, family birthdays, special days, and days for no special reason will be celebrated with your favorite sweets, treats, gifts, food, candlelight dinner, dancing, poems, and infinite other ways that have not been created or imagined before. A carriage ride in a warm summer night under the stars to discuss our dreams. Many roses throughout the year. Rose petals on special occasions. Leaving notes for you to encounter with descriptions of your amazing personal characteristics. Completely and utterly embarrass myself with an hour long serenade on your birthday in front of the world to see. Compose a song that explains how you make me feel. Gourmet candlelight dinners. Treating your parents and family like royalty. Horseback riding in the countryside. A walk in the beach under the moon light. Writing real handwritten letters on real letter paper sealed in a real envelope with wax expressing my feelings. Personally, my days are not measured by time but by how many times I make you smile. I am loyal even in my dreams and faithful in my wildest fantasies.
Someone who has high standards and will never settle for less than they deserve. This demonstrates Self-Confidence, Independence, and most of all Self-Respect which are all very attractive traits. Someone who lights up a room with her smile and inspires positive change in the world with her energy. Someone who is not afraid to be herself.
My ideal date: For breakfast, we can tutor a group of school children and watch their eyes light up as they learn. For lunch, we can help at a homeless shelter and provide meals for the needy. For dinner, we can keep kids of the streets by coaching and mentoring them in sports or activities. For a late night snack, we can come between pimps and children or young women affected by the sex/slave trade to provide a save haven and a new life with renewed hope. If wearing a cape in the eyes of some and being selfless does not bother you then I would extend an invitation for a second date.
The first real date would include something that you enjoy and in a place and time where you are comfortable. With that said some ideas include dancing (I can fix two left feet), participating in a walk or run for your favorite cause, exploring the city (tunnels, architecture, river, etc....) The date may include a comedy club, concert, baseball game, festival (air/water show, venetian night, fireworks,etc...), cultural attractions such as museums, aquariums, zoos, state parks, botanic gardens. We can sample all the seasonal chocolates from Godiva, enjoy an ice cream, cupcakes, brownies, cheese tasting, or wine tasting. We can go horseback riding, backpacking, zip lining, go carts, ride ATVs, ride jet skis, kayaking, sky diving, batting cages, and even cook or bake. An amusement park or camping is not off the table. The list goes on and on because there is no limit to the imagination or craziness.
