I also play Ultimate, golf and fish. Sometimes all at once which is great fun. I also like hockey but don't worry, I don't sit on the couch on Saturday night with a beer in my hand. I stand up with a scotch, on the rocks.
So, enough about me, send me a message and let's get together for a date. Ideally you'll be totally out of my league so even if things don't work out I can look cool on Facebook.
Now to the serious stuff.
I'd really like to meet someone to have a great time with, interesting conversation and share new experiences. If that leads to a lasting relationship then all the better.
I am looking for a smart and witty, cute and adventurous person. Someone who is confident and comfortable in their own skin. Someone who doesn't mind getting their knee scratched or getting dirty from the great outdoors. Someone who is confident enough to go without make up, but doesn't mind getting dressed to the 9's once in awhile. I am looking for someone who is well read, and is up to date on world events. Someone to have a conversation with, or someone to just sit quietly together enjoying a movie, or a play, or just each other.
I am a shy person by nature. It takes me a while to open up to new persons and new situations. But once I am comfortable I am very open and outgoing. I have a wicked sense of humour, it can be a bit acerbic and sarcastic at times.
I play hockey in the winter months. I have season tickets to the Jets. I attend every game and I enjoy cheering them on, win or lose, but mostly lose.
I am taking guitar lessons. I am going into my fourth year of lessons. I am really enjoying it. It can be frustrating at times, but I find it very fullfilling.
I made the typical New Year's resolution, to get into shape. I was never overweight, but not in good shape. So, I decided to train for triathlons. I am exercising 7 days a week now. I am not a big gym guy, I prefer to get my exercise outdoors. I have completed Ironman Wisconsin. I am signed up for 2 Ironman's for next year. I enjoy running and I really like the half marathon distance, my 44 year old hockey knees can't take much more than that. I am down to 132 lbs now, so you can tell I am a short, skinny guy.
I absolutely love going to movies. I go to at least one movie a week, but most weekends I try and squeeze in 2 movies. I am a huge zombie/horror movie fanatic. But, I go to most of the mainstream "hits" and the odd "art" film.
I do crosswords and Sudoku daily. I love to read. I am currently reading the Game of Thrones series right now (I am on book 5). Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Watership Down are a few of my all time favorites. I am a history buff. I really enjoy reading about the first and second world wars, especially the contributions of the Canadian forces.
I drive a motorcycle in the summer, along with my NSX sports car. I enjoy attending car shows around Manitoba and just going for a ride or drive.
I enjoy the Theatre and Ballet. I had season tickets to both, before I got the Jets tickets. Now I just pick and choose the shows I want to see.
I love to travel. But, I haven't done as much of that lately as I would like. I love Las Vegas for a weekend (I have been there three times, and will go back again). But, Europe is my usual go to destination. I haven't been on a warm vacation in a while, so it would be nice to take a break from winter. I have been to Stockholm, Birmingham, London, Cambridge, Paris, Las Vegas, Texas and a bunch of US states in the last couple of years. I have great pictures of buildings, castles, churches and natural wonders, but very few pictures with me in them. Maybe I should get a tripod. Or, better yet a travelling companion. Maybe you?
If you want to go for a run or a ride drop me a line.
