Alvaro Acosta's Photo 1 of 1

I go home in August!  I’m looking for a female friend to share some of my firsts with me.  I’ve never had a Facebook account, never texted, and never took a selfie.  As a joke, they said cars would drive themselves by the time I came home…Guess they were right (smile).

I came in as a young, dumb kid taking life for granted.  I now leave as a man ready to take on the world.  I’m still sarcastic, young at heart, look younger for my age, and have a good family support system to help me succeed.

I’m a barber, a tattoo artist, I work out 5 times a week, and I love cooking.  I’m Colombian, tattooed, and my Mom says I’m handsome.  I’m a good guy but you’ll definitely feel protected around me.

I mean, if you’re searching this site you must know that most of us are a little rough around the edges.  I’m still human though, with flaws, mistakes and the ability to learn from those mistakes.  And obviously, if you’re reading this then you’ve already given me a second chance.  Thank you for that because I know I’ll be unfairly judged out three, even after I’ve paid my debt to society.

With that said, if you’re an understanding risk-taking, non-judgmental woman, I invite you to get in contact with me.  Life’s about taking chances.  So if you’ve felt even the slightest connection, then don’t pass up on this opportunity before finding out what that connection might be.
