Title of course is a reference to an old novel, the most influential from the spanish golden age. But of course, you knew that!
So, you've been looking through these profiles trying to find the Prince Charming that waits on you hand and foot and agrees with you blindly. I am not he!
Be forewarned that this individual:

This makes me a little unusual for the DC area - the land of the
The first things people usually notice about me:
Celtic features - dimples, charm, and no, my eyes aren't brown.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food:
Books - My favorite book of all time is probably The Tale of Genji If you haven't read it, I heartily recommend it - such richness with a tapestry of romance and poetry woven together that I can only compare to Shakespeare in depth! That would be followed closely by Don Quixote another masterpiece. I'm currently reading The New CIO & a miscellaneous book on Jung. I am a reader of prodigious proportions. Authors I have enjoyed reading are Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra, Vladimir Nabokov, Louis L'Amour, Anais Nin, William Gibson, Isaac Asimov, Raymond Feist, Piers Anthony, Orson Scott Card, and Frank Herbert.
I love include a mix of classics, drama, guy movies and particularly foreign films. Dangerous Liaisons, Valmont, Pride & Prejudice, The Breakfast Club, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Braveheart, Seven Samurai, Terms of Endearment, The Passion of the Christ anything James Bond. I also like foreign films & independent films and with the American Film Institute Silver so close by, I have been attending regularly.
I enjoy live music a great deal, Irish pub music, Acoustic guitar, rock/alternative, punk, new wave, indie rock, classical, trance/house/Drum and Bass. My favorite bands/artists are, by genre (indie) Future Islands (Alternative) Smashing Pumpkins, U2 (Trance) Robert Miles, DJ Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold (Classical) Rimsky-Korsakov. I enjoy exposure to new music, more recently that has been early alternative, post-punk, & garage-rock. If I am seeing shows, 99% of the time it is indie rock, punk, new wave.
Often I am traversing Epicurious finding new recipes then trying them out. I have 20+ cookbooks too, so finding something fun to make is never much of a challenge. My baking though is mediocre; I don't try to do much beyond muffins, brownies, cheesecake or cookies.
You should message me if
You have exuberance, charisma, empathy, brains, playfulness, and a sense of adventure. It wouldn't hurt if you brought the energy of Kara Thrace, the sharp tongue of an Elizabeth Bennett, and the brains of Temperance Brennan perhaps with a tad bit of Camille Paglia thrown in for good measure. However, that might be too much perfection...
Hey, a man can dream right? :)
And finally, as if this was not long enough... TL; DR
You are a professional dog-walker, and your idea of a fun first date after dinner activity includes playing with the dogs, as if you are one too. Thanks to past experience, I am going to say I'm not your type and wish you great luck in finding your fellow "furry" guyfriend :)
