Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born & raised in Toronto. I now work in Calgary because of a
career level-up! I'm looking for new friends (really) or fun dates
to keep me busy outside of work.
I enjoy interesting dates, so at least we had fun, if we part ways
after. I've done marketing, so I'm not shy, nor awkward. I'm not
one to ask easy qts either.
I'm passionate about foreign policy, so I finished a Masters in
reading papers on it, all day every day. My other passions are
History & animals.
I enjoy board games, museum exhibits, & stand-up comedy shows.
I live alone, so I enjoy cooking!

Now, is that chivalry or gender discrimination? You tell me.
- Browsing profile pics just for the dogs. Click!
- Organizing fun activities.
- Analytical work. Policy and socio-economic.
- Abstaining from video games. Burying my inner "ruthless warlord."
