Anyhow - Howdy!
I'm J. I'm a young professional living on Capitol Hill, working in SoDo and running around all over the rest of Seattle for fun. I've lived here in Seattle for 10 years now and love it. I moved here after a couple years in Florida, grew up mostly in Oklahoma and was born in the Philippines.
I can't see myself being anywhere else unless something extraordinary happened.
I'm a self identified geek who gets along with geeks of all sorts. I read pop-culture gossip blogs, watch too much Buffy the Vampire Slayer, have songs like Rack City - Tyga and Up All Night - One Direction on playlists with Garbage and Tina Turner.
I dragon boat, cook, and I would dance down the sidewalk if it didn't put others at risk of me vogueing them into the street.
That all being said I do a pretty good job at being an adult even though I don't feel like one. I go to work everyday (I'm on year 12 with the same great company), I pay my rent every month, I have bills that autopay themselves and my friends listen to me, sometimes. It freaks me out and thrills me all at the same time. It's weird to think that I'm the same person I've always been but at the same time we're different everyday.
I have a really great group of close friends. They are my family here. I have a really great relationship with my family, they are just in Oklahoma, so they aren't always as accessible as my friend-family. I'm not really looking to collect new acquaintances, I'm looking to make new authentic friendships that compare to or rival those that I already have. Specifically I'm looking to date and am looking for people who think they are in a similar place in their life.
