man, happily married (my wife does the cooking and orders me about ), with a 8-month super-cute baby (girl), I read anything that has letters. Engineer & programmer. Very optimistic, but I like to spoil others with my comments (even if it's not my opinion). For example I love mens' jokes, although my wife controls me.
An example of a man-joke
""cuando llegará la mujer a la luna?" When will a woman reach the moon
-cuando haya que barrerla " -When the moon needs a sweep.
I love the expression of the women's faces when I tell them that joke

I think Tomissimo must move this thread to "what's your opinion of what other people look like?"

Jane: a disco-lover, 25, sho loves reading with a swiming-pool by his side. And Gemma must be her twin

Me sorprendió. Pensaba que era una mujer porque su nombre termina con a. Pero ingeniero/programer no me sorprendio. Quieto, inteligente, modesto.

What do you mean by quieto?
Quieto: something / somebody who doesn't move.

Nobody is gonna say I'm a woman?

Tienes razón. Quieto no es la palabra correcta. Una persona de pocas palabras bien escogidas --no mucho en la forma de exceso.

Alfonso, eres un hombre con ingenio agudo, morboso pero con más capacidad de auto-decepción(todos sufrimos de esa aflicción) que la típica persona.

Lacónico, although maybe this word is not always positive, so it's better in this case your paraphrases.

Instead of no mucho en la forma de exceso which sounds rhetorical, I would say simply: sin excesos (verbales).

Sosia, I'm sure you are the sweetest guy ever. And your description of Jane and me suits us down to a T.
