My name is Jon. I'm a tall Filipino-Puerto Rican who's really too
optimistic for his own good! I gotta be honest, I've been in and
out of dating sites, but seeing as I currently live in a very
conservative place, the relatively best place to find someone
decent is online! I have my reservations, but I gotta give this one
the benefit of the doubt. Better than the infamous Grindr, right?
We will see!
I'm not originally from here. I moved from San Leandro to Waterford
to go to school in Turlock. I often visit my family in San Leandro
during vacations and long holidays. I currently live with three
amazing roommates in a great house, so I have no complaints!
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I'm in a baccalaureate nursing program in CSU,
Stanislaus. It takes a good chunk of my time, but I think I have a
handle on time management. Eventually, I want to get my masters and
doctorate in nursing. It's too early to say to decide what I would
want to specialize in for the graduate programs! Time will tell.
Right now I will graduate at the end of Fall 2013! Soooo psyched!
I'm a member of two school organizations. One is the GSA equivalent
in the University, while the other is for student nurses. I enjoy
both very much despite their differences in organization and goals.
Other than that, I make an effort to try to maintain some level of
exercise, and spend time with my friends and family.
I’m really good at
Complimenting people, and raising their self-confidence. I guess
that makes me an awesome supportive friend? I'm not really sure
what exemplary skill that is worth noting! I haven't really thought
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing they notice about me is how I smile a lot. It's
infectious, so be weary Okcupidians.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've been a terrible avid reader since my nursing program.
I've only been able to keep up with the late Robert Jordan's "Wheel
of Time" series. I have a Star Wars series that my best friend is
making me read. However, I do read comics and manga. So, if you're
a comic (Marvel or DC) or manga fan, I'd love to talk to you about
Movies: I like romantic comedies the most. I wouldn't reject an
action packed thriller, nor a frightening film. Just don't ask me
to watch the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie, or I might just
Shows: Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, Sherlock, Merlin, New
Girl, Glee, Supernatural, Trueblood, Family Guy, American Dad,
Arrow, Community, and Lost Girl are currently playing shows that I
can come up with at of this moment. I have a problem, I know!
Food: I'm a sucker for trying new dishes, though my current
favorite is Thai. I'm a pescatarian (vegetables and seafood) so it
makes it a slight challenge to try new things.
The six things I could never do without
1. Family - they've supported me in all my endeavors, despite their
own personal reservations.
2. Friends - my entertainment, sanity, and second family.
3. Goals - I would not be where I am without them.
4. Humor - craziness is not a lost trait.
5. Smile - seriously, it's infectious. People need to try it
6. Car - have not appreciated having a car until I went to central
valley where everything is miles away.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I tend to day dream a lot and cycle through various thoughts,
tangent or otherwise. Mostly, I wonder how people think the way do.
I find it fascinating to try to understand how people think.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am out and about, enjoying myself one way or another after a long
week! I'm usually down for whatever adventures my friends have set
for the night. So far, nothing I've regretted not even once!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have retainers now! Braces be gone! So psyched! haha
You should message me if
You're a type of person who's willing to take the time, effort, and
commitment to get to know me once you think there are enough
interested between us to spark your interest! I'm really not that
demanding, but I don't want someone who just wants a one-night
stand. I want something more meaningful. Please inquire, if you
have similar feelings. Suffice to say, I don't have any big
expectations, as I'm really just a go with the flow kind of guy. I
will never turn away a potential friend either.
