Interaction with guests
It depends on both of our schedules. I have spent many hours speaking and hanging out with past guest. Even cooked for some and some cooked for me. LGBT friendly. I have friends from all over the world so I have been exposed to pretty much every culture. Happy and I are social butterflies. So it's important to interact with both of us. ;-)
I lived in Lake Highlands for over 9 years. They Lake Highlands Town Center is a block from my place. They have shops, Sprouts and restaurants. We have hiking trails and an outdoor amphitheater as well.
Lake Highlands Dart rail/Metro station is less than 10 minute walk from my place, bus stop is in front. If I'm able, I can always give you a ride somewhere or pick you up.
Other things to note
I have friends that speak Spanish and Filipino if you need a translator.
One thing I learned this winter is most people don't realize our coldest month is February so you can run into snow and ice in Dallas. Because it doesn't happen often, I would like to inform my guess that the City of Dallas is not prepared to make the roads safe for travel. Keep this in mind if planning vacation here.
First of all, enjoy yourself during your stay

Since I have been hosting I have met the greatest people and take such joy in hosting them.
