How about we… Drinks at Jack Rose or Saint Ex? Wide variety of whiskey/bourbon.
How about we… see the work of the French Impressionists at the Philips Collections.
why am I here?
to be honest, I am not sure. I want to enjoy my time in DC and get to know other folks. I am not exclusively looking at dating but I figured this, in addition to group sports and all that jazz are ways to meet folks. I love being out and about so I'm usually up for an after work drink. I have an okcupid profile - same name as here: alejandradc.
An awesome place I've visited
My perfect sunday
1. being out and about. dancing. 2. being semi-productive
The movie I've watched the most times
Volver, by Pedro Almodovar. also, Amores Perros, by Alejandro González Iñárritu. Shows: Mindy Project, 30 Rock, Parks & Recreation
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer
not 5 sentences but w/e: grew up in Latin America, went to school in FL and the midwest, moved to DC in search of a career in international affairs, working in systems integration, and enjoying life as it goes. love to dance, read, and meet people. empathetic, bubbly, and charismatic. looking to form strong friendships or a relationship and see where it goes from there.
My first concert / My dream concert
Miguel, Common, Rihanna, Pitbull, Beirut, Florence and the Machine. Dream: Miles Davis
Obscure knowledge I possess
I have a weakness for Guys/Girls who
make me laugh (major plus). are bold and confident but not cocky. ambitious but considerate and realistic. can dance - not a big requirement but it would be awesome to have a dance partner to go out with. so many creepers around town. useful but not necessary: have an interest in international affairs or politics/economics/urban development - geeky I know.
For me, a first date no-no is
being a jerk. you know, the usual.
I secretly want to be
Honestly? A professional dancer. Movement has a way of being very liberating
I want to be with someone who wants to be
someone who has a zest for life. who is ambitious, positive, joyful, and who approaches life as an adventure. i am always impressed with someone who is full of enthusiasm and who surprises me.
An infatuation of mine
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would
move to South America/buy a house in Miami, start my own business/ social venture, travel, and write.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me
My momma just wants you to know that I'm sweet but I also kick ass...she probably doesn't know this idiom- but I'm sure that's what she means ;)
I want to come home to
a big bear hug.
