Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Exceptionally Unexceptional. Older Engineering Student going back
to school to pursue a passion for power generation and steam.
Looking for persons or couples to meet in real life. Tired of the
just online thing. Let's go outdoors, spend time socialising,
relaxing and just being human.
Looking for singles, couples, and folks in general who are looking
for friends too. And hey, if sexy things happen, they happen. No
one will be mad. If they don't, then we've made some new
Taken and Poly. Not cheating.
My partner and I see sexuality as something to be celebrated, and
it can be just as meaningful as a form of affection between friends
as it can be a form of intimacy between partners.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently going back to school for engineering while I work and pay
the bills. My interest work-wise is power generation and how to
make our energy consumption more effiecient and carbon nuetral.
Moved up to Courtenay from Victoria last year and it has been
entertaining. Looking for people to kayak with, drink craft beer
and generally do actual real life things with. Not interested in
anyone with a 'strong virtual presence'.
Did a stint in the Navy as a mechanic but that got old and it's
nice to be home regularly, but sometimes I miss traveling, seeing
new places and just being out on the water.
I would love to figure out how to make a living in the recreation
industry. In the meantime though I'll put in my obligatory 8 hours
and spend my free time in my kayak or the woods. My current
obsession is hunting. Then some years I'm all about running, and
the next summer... Who knows? I could be fishing every weekend. Or
maybe I'll take up kiteboarding or some other fool thing... Just
don't expect me to spend more than one or two days indoors. Ever.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Having ideas about any subject (or making one up)
- Talking really fast
- Fixing things
- Making excuses to not be inside
The first things people usually notice about me

My beard. For some weird reason it's dark brown even though I'm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Gonna be cliche and say Douglas Adams. Although lately I
have been fawning over Rick Riordan's entire universe. I also read
a lot of non-fiction and books about books.
Movies: Art Films and Indie stuff. I think Princess Bride goes
without saying. I'm really sad that Netflix has gone away from a
lot of the really sexy and romantic indie stuff that they used to
Music: Anything from Nightwish to Gordon Lightfoot
Food: I just love good food. I watch the food network constantly.
But if I had to live off of only one kind of food... It would be
Thai. The choice between stir-fry, coconut curry, and roast meat
dishes pretty much covers everything.
Beer: Dark Lagers and Ales, Malty Stouts, Porters, and the
occasional Nut Brown or Honey Brown ale (Preferably from Newcastle)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Kayaks, canoes, and other boaty things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Gender issues, polyamory, environmental stewardship, and the stupid
decisions of the old rich white people in charge. I also think
about where I would like to take my motorcycle next, what to do
with my life, current events, SCIENCE! Also, I just bought my first
house. So that's been taking up a lot of my time too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying as hard as possible to sit still. After about 10 minutes of
that I'll either try to have some friends over and watch movies or
get out and go somewhere - educational, outdoorsy, a pub for
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm not a racist. But I am ethnocentric in that I think modern
Western society has many advantages. I don't care what colour
anyone's skin is... But if your ideology is from the stone age I am
probably going to mock you. Theists especially. Christians and
Muslims, that means you.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You find yourself sitting around on an afternoon and think, wow, I
should go for a hike! Or you're polyamorous, or are at least okay
with poly/open people around. If you have opinions and are smart.
Or if the world makes you laugh most of the time. Because those are
the best kinds of people.
