I'm Jake. I'm Colombian and Italian for those who care.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently focused on my career, recruiting Software Engineers for Audible and Amazon in NJ.
Getting the fuck outside any chance I get. Fresh air does the body good. Volleyball, hiking, beaching, and outdoor happy hours are my usual go to's.
I’m really good at
Listening. What? Yeah, listening. I'm dependable, reliable, as long as you can be the same for me. I've got a great memory for things, so if I remember what you said 2 saturdays ago while you were on the phone with your Mom, don't be surprised.
I'm also that guy you know who you'll probably ask to fix your computer or iPhone.
I speak my mind. I don't like to sugar coat things and tell you it'll all be okay, because it probably won't. In the end you'll thank me for it anyway. Life doesn't have a set path, and there are plenty of ups and downs. I'm all for rolling with the punches and learning from our mistakes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Girls tend to notice my lips.. And maybe once you get to know me
you'll notice how my eyes change color.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently read "Horns" by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son). Powered through A story of Ice and Fire. Read plenty of John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Dan Brown. I really loved "The Last Question" by Isaac Asimov.
Loved Argo, Office Space, Analyze This. Absolutely love Dexter, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Sherlock (UK Version), Madmen, The Office.
Completely obsessed with podcasts lately. Trying to absorb and learn as much information as I can from them.
The six things I could never do without
- Hot sauce
- My friends
- A manual transmission
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. Whether or not our society is heading in the right
direction. What the hell am I gonna do this weekend? How am I ever
gonna pay this bill? Are we the only life in the universe?
That awkward moment when we view each other's profiles and don't
bother messaging each other.
Why so many women on here use Instagram screenshots
profile pics... Instead of the actual picture. Cmon!
On a typical Friday night I am
Figuring out where to either get inebriated or to dance the night
I save Netflix for Sundays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I teared up at the end of Lost.
You should message me if
I've held your interest this long, so what are you waiting for?
Would be an interesting change of pace having a woman put herself
out there and message me for once.
But if you just wanna shoot the shit and see where it leads, that's
just fine too.
