Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm ambitious, creative, and I like to think I'm smart with a real
good sense of humour. I'm honest and hard-working (when not
distracted by this accursed Internet and all of its blasted cats).
I'm logical and skeptical and I prefer the 'k' spelling of
skeptic for aesthetic reasons.
I'm loaded with opinions and would love the right opportunity to
share them. I'm a writer, so a lot of them end up in text, but a
good one-on-one conversation is even better.
I get a kick out of in science stuff like evolution, psychology
& neurology, technology and how it affects evolution &
psychology & neurology & culture. Language and logic are
reason are interests as well. I try to examine my behaviour and
figure out where it's coming from, and adjust it if I find ethical
issues with it.
I really love film and film theory -- there's something to discuss
in every movie made, and "I like/dislike that movie" is about the
least interesting thing someone can say about a movie (or any art,
really). That interest expands to other modern storytelling
mediums, like video games, online storytelling, TV, comics, and all
the other weird, clever ways to tell a story. Narrative T-Shirts
are still waiting for their Citizen Kane.
I'm a complete optimist and very confident that the world is a
great place and people are a great species (with the data to back
it up). We're living at the best point in human history thus far,
don't let the news convince you otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots of film-related work, some of it for money, some of it for
passion. Lots of writing.
I also work as a teacher, working mostly with students in
settlement -- so, adults who have decided to make Canada their
permanent home and want to learn English (or improve what English
they've already got) for the purpose of living their lives.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, movie-related creative stuff, solving logic puzzles (I
very much enjoyed this place: http://e-exit.ca
/. Though maybe I
can't claim to be good at it, because my group failed every damn
time), teaching, being funny, seeing things from lots of different
angles, being annoyed that OkCupid automatically removes the second
space I insert after periods.
And texting, which surprises me, since I joined the cellphone club
much later than all the people around me. But it turns out I really
enjoy a good text chat and making text jokes. Go figure.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, probably. And if my hair is long at the time, I'm sure
it gets a glance or two. (It's not long right now, so it gets no

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Easy access to movie theatres.
- Something I can write with, be it pen & paper or laptop
computer with Final Draft and OpenOffice installed.
- Music n' Podcasts.
- Google Calendar.
- At least one really good friend I feel comfortable with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Movies/TV -- Both individual items and the mediums themselves
Video Games -- More the medium than individual ones, in some ways
I'm more excited by its storytelling possibilities than I am by
Religion/Atheism -- Religion's everywhere, so when you're not a fan
but you are a ponderer, you find yourself ponderin'
My Plates -- I've got a lot of different projects happening, some
for money, some for fun, some hopefully for future money, and it
takes enough time just to figure out what I need to be doing at any
The Future -- I'm looking forward to it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not a big partier, much more likely to go to a movie or maybe
just go home and do some writing. How 'bout a board game? I'm
always up for a board game.
Ooh, or mini golf.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm at home by myself, I'm probably nude. It's not a special
kink or anything, I just don't bother putting anything on until I
really need to, like if I'm heading out or I want to make popcorn
(SERIOUSLY, DON'T MAKE POPCORN WHEN NUDE).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like smart, funny, creative, and ambitious guys. You wanna date
a feminist who will still makes horribly offensive jokes every now
and again. You don't have any weird, racist answers in your Q&A
section. You're up for the occasional random concert or random
movie. You like sex both as an activity and an intellectual
pursuit. You think my pictures are up to snuff and like a
sufficient amount of the stuff I said up above.
Who are you looking for?
