Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
With a name like this chances are pretty good that I engage in
tarantism. You gotta look up the meaning of this word and then you
will find the humour in it.
Of course, I could write all sorts of things about how wonderful I
am. These facts are probably all true. Of course, because I am
prefect in every way. HEHEHE.
I know, I know. Bad joke.
Seriously now, who am I and what am I looking for on this
Within the last couple days I went for a long walk to the grocery
store with one of my neighbours as we sometimes do. On the way back
she said something interesting and I have thought about it more,
and I will not bore you with what she said. However, I think it
relates to my objective and it is for this reason why I mention it.
One of the things that partially defines me is that in dealing with
others, I appreciate a certain amount of ambiguity and uncertainty,
as I do with many things in life. Why this is important is that I
understand other people's decisions, which I don't necessarily
agree with or would do myself, but can appreciate why they do what
they do, as each of us are a sum total of our lived experiences,
upbringing, cultural differences, financial situations and personal
orientations (amongst other things that define our personal
characteristics). As a result, it means that I find it difficult to
criticize others for doing things that I may or may not do, and
would rather accept them for who they are - warts and all.
I often attend social events and have a wide circle of
acquaintances because of my past business dealings. I try my best
to separate my business life from my personal life although with
the advent of social media it is becoming more difficult to do. I
am very supportive of all my former partners and their interests. I
still stay in touch with many of them (or at least the ones that
are still living). I have a number of friends that are female and
it has been that way all my life, I have always been closer to
women than I have been to men. Maybe that is why I find it
difficult to recognize signs of romantic interest (sad to say, I
might as well be gay, that is how clueless I am sometimes). I like
to keep busy and active; don't have a tv; but do like to spend time
alone to think, plan, read and/or write.
I am looking for a smart woman that takes care of herself. I am
looking for a relationship, not a one-night stand. Although
potentially that might be where it starts, and it may even be where
it ends. I am not going into any relationship entirely blind. It is
even possible that it may end up being a situationship. I hold no
pre-conceived notion of what the end result may be, even though I
Regardless of that, I want someone who has a sense of fun and
doesn't take herself overly seriously. It is my hope that she can
see the humour in many things and together I want someone to laugh
with. I want someone that is interested in others; is able and
willing to compromise; is warm and caring; and is willing to talk
openly about needs or differences of opinion in an environment of
equality and mutual respect.
If that interests and describes you - let's talk. Maybe even plan
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am in a transitional state. However the end of the tunnel is near
and I am starting to see light where there once was little.
Everything in my life is changing (or at least it feels that way).
Change is good. I don't know where the change will take me. But, I
am interested to see where life and the voyage leads me.
Life has been very good to me. I cannot complain (well, I suppose I
could, but who is listening and for that matter most people don't
care). It is scary sometimes, but under it all, I have an
incredible sense of peace and calm. I know that wherever I end up,
it will be an incredible place. It would be nice to have someone
equally amazing to join me in the voyage.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
whole bunch of nothing!!! HEHEHE
I have no idea what I am really good at, as I just do what needs to
be done to the best of my abilities and go from there.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The superhero cape attached to my shoulders and the tights that I
must wear as part of the costume.
After that, they usually notice my eyes and smile and often come
across as being somewhat shy and take a while to open up at first
meeting, because as you would know, superheros try to blend in with
their surroundings until needed.
People often find I am easy to talk to and it is probably because I
genuinely like other people and their company.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Historically I am a voracious reader, but currently have most of my
books in storage. Most of these books are non-fiction. In some ways
I feel like a part of me is lost without them. But then the
internet is increasing the speed of real time information, but the
downside is that I seem to be developing the attention span of a
gnat. Who knows if that is a good thing or not.
I am not a big TV or movie type person maybe because I never
converted my tv to digital or cable from rabbit ears when it went
that way last summer - so I currently do not have tv right now. I
enjoy dramas, crime and human interest and biographically-based
stories. The TV shows I watch, when I watch, tend to be similar to
I very much enjoy music of all genres. Quite fond of classical,
operas (on Saturday afternoons - it is an old tradition for me),
jazz, classic rock, alternative, folk, blues - new music, old music
to everything in between. My music interests are very, very (did I
say very) broad. I am not particularly fond of mainstream top 40
country - and only allow myself to indulge in that genre during
Stampede Week - because it is a losing cause to fight that
Food? Yes please!!! I will try everything once, and more often than
not more than once. If you put food in front of me I will eat it. I
enjoy a wide assortment of world cuisine, and would like to know
how to make some of it. I have a fantastic kitchen that is
definitely under-utilized, but I only use it when I have time to do
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Obviously food and water and a place to rest my head.
This is a tough one, because there should be more than six things
on this list. However, we are resilient people and we can do
without a lot of things we think we could not do without. I want to
be surrounded by beauty, respect, tolerance, good health, good
food, friends and family. Oh and whirled peas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should be thinking about!!! LOL
Oh and I am trying to figure out new ways to create whirled peas!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually do something, but more often than not I am shocked to
realize it is Friday already and then try to figure out what to do
on the weekend - or that night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might not be as perfect as I think I am!!! I know it is hard to
believe. Some might think it is shocking.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to chat; are interested; just want to find out more about
me... or maybe just because there is a button below my profile that
says something like send message (or contact this person); or you
had your hand on the mouse which was hovering on top of it as you
sneezed - and it clicked by accident. LOL
