Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I consider myself to be a Free Spirit Wannabe, I am fairly open
minded and specialize in bad (and sometimes terrible) jokes. If
this was a much sought after genre in sit-down comedy, I'd be a
millionaire. I actually felt like a millionaire in South East Asia
- perspective I guess :)
I love to travel - been to 260 cities in 31 countries around 4
continents of the globe (and this list is growing) but barely
scratched the surface of what this world has to offer. Will keep
trying to scratch more :)
I love to laugh (at myself mostly, plus since my jokes are bad, I
end up being my best fan) and lead a healthy active lifestyle. I
love to travel and visit tea growing countries, work with tea
farmers and help build communities. Last Summer, I came back from a
rewarding trip to South East Asia (Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia
and Vietnam) where I taught yoga at a Kids camp specializing in
children with childhood trauma - sounds intense but was super fun
and extremely transforming. I will be going back again this summer
to teach the same kids.
Of course I do love art, museums, theaters, concerts, fine dining
with a nice glass of wine and all that normal stuff, but my soul
belongs to nature.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally - I can consider myself to be a successful business
person and a social entrepreneur. Very lucky to have crossed
continents and made it this far on my own and I am extremely
grateful to all the wisdom gained en-route.I teach Yoga regularly
and try to lead a healthy lifestyle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I sure can drink a lot of tea (you'd be amazed at how much tea I
can drink), love to teach Yoga, volunteer and walk my adorable
doggie. What I am not so good at is shaving my own head especially
the back. Had some comically disastrous attempts with the razor
that landed me right at a neighborhood hair salon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile? Ok this is too cliche!
My Zen ability to bring calm to a riotous situation?
I look like a cross between Sugar Sammy and Russell Peters?
I really dont know!!! This is tough!
Hmm...I give up - you can tell me when we meet!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I usually tend to read 5 books at a time - I know its not sane but
keeps my brain busy :)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Underwear (most of the time)
Meditation ( notice how this sequence is getting interesting)
Spicy Food with Tea (did I just bundle two into one?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to pause a weekend, so we'll never have to wake up to a Monday
Why people in big cities like Toronto have a tough time connecting
with strangers in public places like the TTC and grocery stores and
Why cant we just smile more often in our lives at each other and
make each other's days?
Why some women post only group pictures on their profile turning it
a into a 'find me' contest?
Why a lot of women think online dating is the same as the bar
scene? Wake up ladies, this is an alcohol free zone :)
Why the pressure is still always on men to make the first move in a
so called progressive world and why the first move is not always
appreciated with a brief, courteous "Thank you" note?
Ok - this is getting a bit too intense, on a lighter note, I also
think it would be cool if cats and dogs could talk back or if we
could read their minds :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Definitely NOT hanging out in night clubs and waking up sore next
morning - not that there's anything wrong with this (As Jerry
Sienfeld would say)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dream came true when I took a year off to travel around 4
countries in 9 months of volunteering and trying to make a
difference to 36 orphaned kids around the world. Spending time with
Monks in South East Asia

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Disclaimer: I am not your typical guy. So do not apply your
previously bad online/ offline experiences to this profile. Also I
am not here to pickup. Some men can also value chemistry and be
decent, contrary to popular belief.
So here are some YOUness that I appreciate:
You must be willing to meet up in person. Sorry! while chat and
messaging works as an initial icebreaker, it's just unreal to keep
sending messages from Mars - I swear I am very much a human and not
You can laugh easily especially at yourself
You have positive energy and like sharing it
You are open, laid back, low maintenance and drama free (drama
looks better on Television or the big screen than in real life)
You do not judge easily and have a fair bit of patience (sigh! is
this a tough ask?)
You are into Men only (disclaimer: I totally respect lifestyle
choices and I'm just stating my preference)
Sexiness gets extra points, if you can pull it off wearing glasses
- I will clean your floors ;)
My philosophy in life is "be present and the rest will follow" -
Does this resonate even slightly? If yes, then you know what to do
