Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a just a country boy, living in south Winnipeg. (I took the
midnight train going aaaaanywhere)
I grew up in southwestern Manitoba on a grain farm. I've been
living in a house in Fort Richmond for several years now. I enjoy
the outdoors, but I'm a big fan of being able to buy snacks at 4am,
should the need arise.
I've recently started working on myself as a project. I've lost
weight, become more active, worked on my French, started cooking
again and started thinking about other ways to be a better
On days it doesn't rain, I ride my bike. I go to the gym when I
can't ride my bike. Mr Treadmill and I don't like each other much,
but we work together anyways. I love going for walks, alone or with
To get along well with me, you'll need to be interested in keeping
healthy. I love movies, computers and TV, but that's for after
you've worked off the meals I cook.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working as a security supervisor, primarily for
special events. It's a fun job a lot of the time. It has allowed me
to experience many new things and given me great stories to
However, I am working towards a career in law enforcement. To that
end I will be moving on to corrections in a few months. Once I've
settled in there, I'm going to evaluate the option of continuing my
university education on a part time basis.
Ultimately, my goal is to become a police officer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a great cook, when given the opportunity to get creative. I
enjoy tinkering with recipes I know as well as learning to make
things I enjoy.
I'm a solid listener. I may not remember every detail that is put
forth, but you'd be surprised what I file away.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing people likely notice about me is my voice. Simply
because I'm usually being loud the first time they see me. I tend
to get a lot of attention, partly because I'm a big guy, partly
because my voice carries and partly because I just enjoy talking to
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a sucker for anything Terry Pratchett writes. Once in a
while I'll read a bit of philosophy. I keep up with the Game of
Thrones series. I enjoy nearly any fantasy or sci-fi novel. I also
read a few science magazines and books fairly often.
Movies: Netflix gets a work out fairly often. I've got a corner of
my living room devoted to DVDs and Blu-Rays. I'm a fan of the
medium itself. However, my preferences do lean towards "Guy
Movies". Action, Sci-Fi, Crime, Comic Book Adaptations and so on. I
enjoy comedy as well. I can sit through a romantic comedy, if it's
actually funny, and not just repetitive. My favorite single movie
is Full Metal Jacket. My favorite series is Harry Potter. My
favorite actor is Adam Baldwin, but Bruce Willis is a close second.
Every Christmas I watch Die Hard, it's my favorite holiday
Tv: I cancelled cable, but shows I enjoy include: The Daily Show,
Supernatural, top Gear (UK), Doctor Who, Venture Bros, Community
and a long list of cancelled shows.
Music: My job complicates this answer. I've come to associate
musicians with their behavior off stage as much as with their
sound. Metallica is my favorite band, but I love most metal from
that era. I've heard enjoyable songs from most genres, except the
various rave styles (dubstep, trance, house, techno), I can only
tolerate that in small doses. (Incidently, if you mention DJ Tiesto
to me, expect a 25 minute rant, 45 if I opt for the visual
Food: I make a variety of dishes. Lately I seem to be on a Tex-Mex
kick, but I pick from all over. I have made sushi in the past, but
my neighborhood has so many good places, it's better to go out. I'm
willing to try nearly anything. I'll warn you though, I can respect
vegans for their choice, but I'm not likely to give up my grill.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends. I'll go above and beyond for my close friends, and
they would for me too.
2. My family. We're not in constant communication. We get on each
others nerves. We love each other absolutely.
3. Stories. I love books, movies and songs. However, the thing I
love most is sharing tales with my friends.
4. Nature. I live in the city, but the city I live in is alive. I
ride the trails in the park. I watch the river flow. I see the
animals scurry about.
5. Food. You can survive on water and nutritional supplements if
you have to, but you're not really living unless you can sit down
to a nice meal now and then.
6. Logic. Common sense. Analytical thought. Math. Call it what you
will, but a world where nobody thinks about what is happening is
nothing but chaos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about.... everything. I'm a
thoughtful guy. I ponder tough questions like "did I put the hummus
back in the fridge" and "if I had wings, would I just hurt myself
in more spectacular ways".
Seriously though, I do wonder about what my life will be like in
five years a lot lately. That seems to be the thing that I'm
gnawing on at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This question is flawed for me. I have no typical Friday nights.
Statistically, I'd likely be working. If not, however, I'll try to
get some friends together to do something. I'm not a big bar
person, if that is the thrust of this question. I spend too much
time in that environment for work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not all that secretive, so here are a few:
I have several stuffed animals stashed around the house.
I have a birthmark that you won't see on the first date.
I've been known to growl/purr when very pleased by affection.
I sometimes fantasize about being in the world of my favorite books
and TV shows.
I always sing along to the song in the credits if the Ninja Turtles
