My self-summary
The Tao of Pooh and the I Ching are my Bibles. And also, if what they say is true, the Shaolin and the Wu-Tang could be dangerous...

I believe the world is my country, mankind is my brethren and to do good is my religion. Thanks, Thomas Paine!

I want a girl who reads! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmEbF2uhsZk&feature=youtu.be

I was born in Long Beach, but grew up in a small town near Santa Barbara called Lompoc, which I think means "stagnant water" in some Native American language. Maybe Chumash? Oh well, it's not important. My life, like anyone else's, has had its ups and downs. Fortunately, I am a Taoist and am pretty good at always finding the positive in any situation. I love puns, corny jokes, and non-sequiturs

I am starting a business and working for an insurance broker in Newport Beach, as well as doing design work on the side... Basically, pretty busy. I would ideally like to find someone whom I can share my life with, but I would prefer to start out as friends because I think it creates better, longer lasting relationships. I can't guarantee that we will be a match, but I will guarantee a fun, interesting conversation, and maybe a new friend. That's not a money-back guarantee or anything, just the word of a gentleman.
What I’m doing with my life
What am I doing with my life... Good question, I wonder that same thing almost every day. What are YOU doing with YOUR life, OKCupid? How DARE you... Right now, I'm rewriting my "What I'm doing with my life" section on my OKCupid account, in the hopes that this one paragraph is the ticket to finding happiness. I'm also thinking about what I can put in this section that will truly answer this question. I suppose "working a lot" is too vague.

I try to go to the gym 3-4 days a week, although I prefer to get my cardio from football, ultimate frisbee, or basketball. I have a deep passion for what I do, and I would describe myself as ambitious and driven to achieve my goals. I read a lot. It's like, super important for making your brain smarter and stuff.

I drink good beer and good bourbon, but not in an unhealthy amount. I drink mostly water and coffee when I'm not drinking the two aforementioned beverages. I like bars over clubs, hotels over camping, burgers over steaks, beer over wine, peanut butter over jelly, mind over matter, HBO over Showtime, Hip-Hop over Country, pool over darts, basketball over football, weed over booze, Apple over PC, Nike over Reebok, iPhone over Android, sleeping in over waking up early, staying up late over going to bed, eggs over easy, Honda over Toyota, optimism over pessimism, reading over TV (usually), meat over veggies, Bernie over Hillary, Anyone over Trump, and time over money.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at filling stuff out, especially if there are several thousand questions about random bullshit. I thought there was an end to the questions, which was my first mistake.

I'm also good at sitting on things. One time, I sat on a chair for like, at least 2 hours. People were like, "whoa, check out that guy in the chair!" it was pretty awesome.

I'm pretty good at walking my dog, just ask her. She'll be like, "Bark bark! Ruff!" Which means, "Jesse is my favrorite walking human!" I'm also really good at telling jokes, and you can expect a nearly constant barrage of jokes.
Like this one: Why did the can crusher quit his job?
It was soda pressing.

The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea what people notice about me, but I would like to believe that they notice how smart, funny and handsome I am. Then they might notice that they are looking at someone else. I am almost always smiling, except probably when I'm asleep, but who knows? Anything is possible, that's what I always say. To myself.

The six things I could never do without
Creative outlets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about how many questions there are on this site. At first, I figured there were like 100 questions. Then, after answering what felt like several thousand questions, I started to get scared. Maybe the questions NEVER end?! Maybe part of the test is how many questions you answer before saying, "Fuck this! I quit!" I also think about other dating sites, and how they asked so few questions compared to this site. Is that a good thing? I don't know.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night, I am watching T.G.I.F. reruns on my computer, and trying to make my hair look like Uncle Jesse's hair on Full House.
I may also be at T.G.I.Friday's enjoying some delicious buffalo chicken burrito nibblers or whatever bullshit they sell there.

One time I spent a Friday with my friend who smokes a lot of weed and he accidentally smoked a bunch of weed that he was supposed to sell for Big Worm and also he was Chris Tucker and also I was Ice Cube and also this is the plot of the movie Friday if you didn't already pick up on this. You know, typical Friday stuff.

On the real, I hate clubs more than baby seals do, so if I'm in the mood to interact with the public, I'll go to a dive bar and play pool or shuffleboard.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a Redditor. And I'm on OK Cupid. And I'm an agnostic Atheist. I have had a lot of good adventures, but you will have to meet me to learn about them. I could tell you stories for days...
You should message me if
If you are open minded, intelligent, optimistic, and enjoy good conversation. If you are not looking for just another douchebag who wants nothing but sex. I want other things too, like a sandwich. Especially right after some sex. Calm down, I'm kidding. Sort of. If you like to laugh, try new things, and are easy going, send me a message.
