Anyhow - Howdy!
I'm J. I'm a young professional living in Pioneer Square, working in SoDo and running around all over the rest of Seattle for fun. I've lived here in Seattle for 8 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 don't know how the world lets me be an adult until I remember I go to work everyday, (I've worked for the same great company for nearly a decade), I pay my rent every month, I have bills that autopay themselves and my friends treat me like the older wise one. It freaks me out and thrills me all at the same time. I've always been very responsible so it's just strange to think that the same person who used to pretend to be a power ranger is in here now mostly pretending to be an adult.
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.
