My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Once upon a time not too long ago, somewhere in the city of Toronto... (bonus points if you read that like it was rhyming and purposefully mispronounced Toronto for extra oomph.)

Look, just read the gist below. I don't want to write this. I'd rather just tell you. Just message me or whatever. I suck at online dating, but whatever. It's just way too competitive on here if you're a guy, and while I like to be competitive, trying that on here just isn't my thing. Yet I keep coming back because I'm apparently glutton for punishment.

I'm "average height" for a dude. Sorry. I do have a beard, though. I hear those are in right now (despite having had a beard before it was cool).

I'm the person most friends ask for advice. Chances are if there's something they're going through (positive or negative) I'm the one they ultimately come to. I've lived quite a life, I'm never without stuff to talk about, and I'm always looking for new people to talk to and learn from. I don't have the answers for everything, but I'm a great and attentive listener.

I have a job that most people would probably think makes me a cynic, but I am a giant sap with a big heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an actual real life paid film critic! I have probably crapped on some of your favourite films of all time. I'm sure I will apologize for it at some point and I'll let you tell me I'm wrong, but you probably won't change my opinion and I probably won't be able to sway yours either. Also currently writing a book. About film. I am also making a film soon. Not on film. On digital video. I love my job(s).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, cooking, talking, listening, giving advice and perspective even when I can't follow what I say. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of movies of the 80s and 90s. I am a force to be reckoned with in trivia games. I am also really good at being myself. I have a knack for giving really thoughtful gifts. I have a handful of songs I can sing at a karaoke night without looking foolish. I really enjoy public speaking. I have also mastered the art of walking and breathing on my own.

Do not challenge me to a pie baking contest because you will lose. Conversely, I love making people pies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sense of humour and kindness are pretty close together. On a physical level, the eyes or that I look vaguely like a human being.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by Victor Hugo or Charles Dickens, Housekeeping, The Crying of Lot 49, graphic novels (particularly a fan of Scott Thompson and Adrian Tomine). I'll read anything if it's put in front of me. I'm also a sucker for any well written or researched pop culture book. Fun fact: I actually really like the John Grisham book The Rainmaker, but probably nothing else he has ever written.

Movies: Really, just ask me this in person when you are good and ready to. If you don't want to talk about movies all the time, just as good. I have to talk about them all day as is.

Music: Anything that feels like someone put their heart and soul into it. Genre unimportant. Kind of like what I think of movies.

Actually, let me back up here for a second to say that especially with the movie thing, that's really hard to answer. When you get asked day in and day out what's a good movie to see or a band to check out, you get SUPER burnt out on that question because the response usually results in having to explain something in great detail that the other person just doesn't want to listen to or they kind of roll their eyes. I'm actually super guarded now about actually listing stuff unless I'm getting paid for it. It sounds strange, but that's probably because when I hang out with someone I like to engage with what THEY like more than with what I like. Hopefully that makes sense. Either way, not liking Planes, Trains, and Automobiles at the very least is a deal-breaker.

TV: What's that? I don't even have time. It's not that I don't like it, but I already sit in front of a movie screen and a computer screen all day and I just can't make the investment to any show you have to tune into on a weekly basis to follow it. I like it. I wish I had more of it in my life, but it's kind of like this story I once heard about how train and bus operators in some cities in the US will only request cab rides home from cabs that don't have plastic partitions between them and the driver. They already spent their entire day under glass and they don't want to spend a second more in that position.

But if you need an answer, the shows that I have watched the most of in my life are The Simpsons, Cheers (don't hate on it), Friday Night Lights, The O.C. (don't hate on it), Doctor Who (even though I really don't like much past the David Tenant years), and Regular Show (which is way better than Adventure Time and probably the funniest show on television right now).

Food: I'll eat anything, but I am in the process of going vegetarian or vegan, hopefully by early next year. I just realized I didn't eat meat that much anymore so I doubt I'll miss it if it was gone. But I do love Chinese, Indian, and Middle Eastern food the best. Probably because they have the least cheese on their menus. (See below)

2. My hands
3. Paper
4. Pen

12. Hot sauce
13. A healthy skepticism for authorities that suggest my list can only be six things long.
14. Cat pictures on the internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Worst case scenarios no matter how ridiculous and how to find the good in even the worst of situations.

How I can forward my non-existent professional wrestling career.

What I want to bake this weekend.

How I can goof off for hours each day and still get all my work done without anyone noticing I haven't done anything.

Where all the times goes. (See above)

How crappy this profile is and how most of the effort I put into it doesn't really amount to much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really have typical Fridays, but most often they either involve shenanigans, hangs with friends, drinking, movies, relaxing, or a combination of all of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have always disliked cheese. It's amazing how many people think that's shocking. Hence why I tend to keep it private.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to talk about anything at all. But only if you're going to put an effort in to deliver more than just a "hello" or a "tell me about yourself" or "what's your favourite movie?". I probably won't respond to that.

If you have a cat or beer on hand.
