I met Luis through the same dating site as Chris-he and I were actually emailing first I think, but things moved more quickly with Chris and so Luis and I stopped talking. But he left the door open for me to contact him again...and once I realized I was over Chris I figured it wouldn't hurt anything to just send him a quick email and see if he was interested in talking again.
We emailed for a while...then started talking the phone fairly frequently, and he came down to see me at the beginning of June. Since then we've hung out several times (down in my area, I've driven up to Castaic)...and things have already gotten pretty serious. It seems really fast-and I didn't intend for it to move so quickly, but it's not necessarily something I've been able to control and I'm actually really enjoying the journey.
A bit about him...he's 26 (almost 27), Latino, works in advertising/marketing for a car audio company...he went to UCSB and majored in Spanish-he hopes to be a high-school Spanish teacher someday but his circumstances make that rather difficult at the moment. He's very passionate about ministry and is involved with several different ministries at his church (college/high school mostly) and is also passionate about building community within his church and serving the larger community. He's a relatively new Christian but he grew up a nominal Catholic so he has a religious background. He has a younger sister (who's my age) and two younger brothers...
He loves to read, loves music and sports (soccer mostly), enjoys video games/movies...he loves people, and cares deeply about his family. He is an excellent listener...he really cares about what I have to say and makes an effort to find out what's going on inside my head. He's pretty laid back and easygoing, has a good sense of humor, likes to tease/be teased (I didn't realize I could actually be so sassy until he and I started talking...). And he's also very honest and open about what he's thinking/feeling.
So...that's Luis. Hmm. I'm not sure what else to say...plus I should really get back to my studying. I think I said that at the end of my last post, but it's still true... =)
