My self-summary
I guarantee you came to the right place :) My name is James, born and raised here in Orange County.

I am here for the same reason everyone else is here...To hopefully find that special someone. I know that is so corny to say but it's the truth right?

I enjoy going to the beach/park, taking leisure drives anywhere (especially to places I've never been), reading (magazines also count right? LOL), traveling, raising some house plants (yeah I said it, relaxing hobby though), having some drinks with close friends on some weekends, learning about different cultures, BBQ-ing and cooking (yes ladies, I do cook:)

I also like learning about new technologies and scientific breakthroughs, going hiking, playing golf/softball/golf/basketball/golf (btw, I like golf). I'm a big fan of the Lakers, Angels, 49'ers, Galaxy, Arsenal (English soccer) and the Anaheim Ducks. I'm not a hardcore fan, I do know when my teams suck ^_^'

Friends would say that: I'm a great guy to know, funny, can be pretty sarcastic, thick skinned, can take criticism, love a joke or two and a cool/lovable guy. I am a simple man who wears my heart on my sleeve. I love making people laugh, smile and consider myself more of a giver than a receiver. I care a lot for my family and friends, they are the world to me, and will always come first. If you are a part of my life, you will always come first.

Loyalty is one of the most important words in my dictionary. Trust me, gallantry and chivalry were never dead. I don't smoke, don't do drugs and only drink socially with close friends and family. Never been married/engaged, and don't have children.

Well, that's just the tip of the iceberg, I hope to hear from you soon.

Dewa mata! (Japanese: trying to learn)
Nos vemos!! (Spanish)
See ya!!!

PS. I'm a ENFP (MBTI = google it)
What I’m doing with my life
As of now, I'm taking a break from the business world (used to work in dealing with escrow accounts), and finishing college as a full-time student to pursue my degree in International Business. My long term goal is to open my own restaurant overseas.
I’m really good at
...being a tech geek. I will guide and fix your electronic/s (or attempt to :)
The first things people usually notice about me
...my big smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like reading books. Currently reading: "An Alchemy of Mind". Recently finished: "The Hobbit", "Every Nation for Itself" (Global markets), "Kitchen Confidential" by Anthony Bourdaine was good.

I grew up through the eighties and nineties, so a lot of comedies from those eras are my favorites! I used to work for a video store, so I like pretty much every genre.

Concerts you say? Haven't been to one since Weenie Roast 2009. I need someone to go with. Love to catch a symphony someday. You wanna go?

When it comes to music, I'm all over the place. Love classical, Jazz, Classic rock all the way to underground hiphop, dance, X'mas music and Japanese music.....yes, Japanese music (enka to J-rock).

Food! C'mon now, food is what makes people smile and remember the good times. I'm a foodie, so everything is a-okay!
The six things I could never do without
(not in any particular order :)
- My family (they are dear to me)
- The internet (man would be doomed without it...or tv'd out)
- My car (let's face it, one cannot survive in socal without one)
- My cellphone (a great way to connect with my friends and loved ones)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...my future and plans. Finishing college and imagining opening my restaurant overseas. Other than that, I usually spend my time thinking about ways to cook new dishes.
On a typical Friday night I am
...having dinner with close family and friends. Probably taking in a movie at the theaters or doing weekend projects for school.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...even though I'm not fluent in Japanese (working on it), I blast J-music in my car.
^_^v
You should message me if
...you're looking for a great, funny and loyal guy.
