Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi to the world. In Victoria since Nov 08. I am single (no kids),
non-smoker, non drug user, rarely drink, and expect my significant
other to be the same as me in those. I like camping, fishing,
kayaking, reading, gaming (RPG's and computers), Scifi and cooking.
I hate doing dishes, ironing (who does?), pain, and bugs!
I am starting to get to know some people. (not enough to keep me
happy though, I need to get to know more people!) Even if we are
not dating each other, we may know just the right person for the
I finally bought a suit. first one in 30+ years! I wear comfortable
clothing, and wouldn't know what to do if the style bat hit me. I
need a significant other to help me there. Since getting to
Victoria, I have not been to a place where I need a suit, so not
sure what I would need one for short of interviews. Sweats for
painting/getting dirty in, and a pair of dress pants and shirt for
the other stuff I guess...
Coincidence that I only know one way to tie a tie, and it is the
same knot they use for hanging people? ummmm... ya...
I am the only one in my family on the island, with the rest of the
extended family (sister, Dad) back in Ontario/Quebec. I will not
move back to the mainland short of being brought there in
handcuffs! I am reasonably well behaved, so the chance of the
handcuffs is somewhere between slim and none. Willing to visit
family there but only with a return ticket back to Vancouver
I HATE being cold, so winter is almost a swearword for me, and that
white stuff that falls from the sky in winter... IT IS a swearword
I am talkative, and affectionate. I will never be a follower of
Christ. Hence I am spiritual and not religious. People have asked
me to change, but I am fine the way I am. Do what YOU want to do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life? I have one??? You mean it is mine? Crap, I thought you got
those on sale at Wal-mart! Hmmm...ummm... errrr...
I play online computer video games, I volunteer some time with
various organizations, I am re-learning how to play the trumpet /
flugelhorn, am getting back into kayaking, setting achievable
goals, cooking different healthy kinds of meals. My pasta sauce is
close to vegan, but I still need help getting it fully vegan. Lack
of knowledge about vegan stuff prevents me from getting it 100%
vegan for the moment. As is, it is so yummy I make huge batches and
freeze it for later. The house smells SO awesome when I make
I am working on improving my health so I can get back into the
workforce. So doggone bored being at home all the time so I am
volunteering in opportunities where I can learn the skills I need
for the type of employment I can do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I write, but am not qualified in the least to do it professionally.
This is why I have been published in a magazine article. Twice! I
have never taken a journalism class! I know I am not qualified to
write for magazines but I did! Go figure! Recently I got the
highest mark in my class for Business Communications 2 (aka
business writing) in English. English is my second language.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I walk with a cane.
That I will help even when it is not needed.
This means pulling over to help a stranded motorist, helping with
Sunday service at the church, helping an elderly friend move what
was a 3 day drive away, and helping another elderly lady deal with
the insurance company when a tree fell on her car.
Someone has to do something, and when no one else has the
initiative to know what to do, I step up. Even if I don't know what
to do. Doing something, such as stepping up is a start! Guess that
military training actually did work!
I limp. I don't walk right. No it doesn't hurt every day, but other
days it plays havoc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Une bonne poutine! Avec un cheeze! That is my favorite food... Oh
ya, I am French! Not Quebequois, but I did live there for a year.
They kindly told me that I had an English accent. Me who was raised
by French parents and went to school in French schools have an
English accent! Right! 14.5 feet of calibrated measured white stuff
in my front yard. -40's. Oh ya baby!!! THAT was paradise in
Quebec!!! NOT!!! Did I mention I am not ever moving back to the
Books. Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover" Best book evah!!!
Movies scifi, Summer Glau is just amazing as a Terminator! Her
expressions just make the character! She was great in Firefly as
I like 80's rock such as Rush, Pink Floyd, Pat Benatar, Darby
Mills, Heart, Queen, AC DC. I also like Celtic music, Hayley
Westenra, Sarah Brightman, and "some" country singers. If you want
me to laugh at you, suggest I put on some rap, dubstep or dance
music!!! I could use a good giggle, or even a good roflmao.
Seriously... They call Rap music????
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A comfortable bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my skills, my lack of some skills, abundance of other skills, and
my ability to figure out how to use them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading online, possibly with friends, or listening to some music
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

One of my foibles is that my eyes are usually closed in pictures.
To find one picture where my eyes are open usually means about
20-30 pictures were taken of me. (They get so annoyed at me at the
drivers license bureau.) That also means I usually have a surprised
or odd look on my face if my eyes are open! Note the picture above!
Means someone actually surprised me! Hence the odd or surprised
look on my face...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are between 32 and 38 and looking for long term commitment,
possibly a family, you are sweet, adorable, wants someone to care
about as much as you are cared about and more.
You are smart. You are nice. You can dress up for a date or dress
down to go mudding it on the beach. No illicit drug use. None. I am
firm on that. Not a smoker. I am firm on that too. You think a
great pair of legs has different hues depending on what a woman
wears. You think g-string undies are tacky. When you see a girl
with low rise jeans your thought is that she must be a plumber if
she is showing that much butt crack.
If you are into dance clubs and dancing all night, get out there
and shake your thang. You just won't be doing it with me. Couldn't
pay me to do that.
Yes, I am looking for someone younger than I am but if I am going
to possibly have children with someone, it might help if they can
have children! Someone my own age although maybe compatible, is not
going to have children with me, or already has children. Possibly
even grown up children! They might have daughters who might be the
right woman for me!
So, even if you are not perfect for me, you might be perfect for
someone I know or you might know someone who is perfect for me! We
have to network to be able to help each other!!! Lets find that
