My self-summary
Disclaimer: If I could change my username without subscribing, I would. Some women probably judge me for it, I get it, lol. BUT get to know me. I'm Jake.

I'm an ISTP.

I am unique in that I am adopted. I was born in Honduras and brought to the U. S. as a baby. Lived in Miami, NYC, and L.A.
So, I am Latino, but more culturally "white" I guess. Although, I do not consider myself white, don't get it twisted.

I feel I am also unique as an individual. You'll have to get to know me to understand that. I'm just a swaggy nerd (oxy moron, but I don't care) looking for my female counterpart :P

I like women who are funny and can be playful and affectionate. Education is important and ideally being physically active. Having a passion and goals is a must.

I am very passionate about a few things: basketball, dance, music, and sociological topics like race/social class.

I'm pretty laid back, but I have a good sense of humor that is often silly. I'm very playful when comfortable around someone. I'm also pensive and analytical. I'm very affectionate and always very honest (even when I shouldn't be sometimes lol).

DON'T be afraid to send me a message. It doesn't always have to be men to initiate.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach ESL/English at the college level. Currently doing a second MA in Higher Education Administration. Also coach basketball and may teach dance.

I play in a basketball league for fun and also dance hip-hop. I also write and record rap songs based on social issues as well as relationship stuff.
I’m really good at
anything I put my mind to...well most things lol.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm...different people probably notice different things, but maybe my laugh lol. I do a lot of that. Luckily, I have nice teeth I'm often told :)
