Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love biking/walking the ravine systems around the city of Toronto
and beyond. I am very physically active and work out pretty much
every day. I am well travelled having seen much of the world
through business or personal travel. My most recent international
travel for business was to Tunisia for a conference at the end of
October 2014. My favorite personal vacations have been bike trips
(Loire Valley in July 2013, Bordeaux in 2010 and Tuscany in 2001)
although for me there is nothing like spending time with friends on
the beach at Lake Huron or the Bay of Quinte in the summer. I am an
avid reader and belong to a book club. I also love singing and
participating in choir! choir! choir! For 2015 I aspire to try a
new sport - ideally something to get me out of the gym in the
winter (x-country skiing maybe??), to volunteer more, do more yoga
and enlarge my social circle. I am a mother of a 19 year old, a
strong proponent of human rights, a loyal friend and a passionate
person. I am a CBC radio listener and have an iphone that contains
about 40% classic rock and 60% current pop/alternative music. I'm
looking for a kind, smart, honest guy who can be a good friend and
who wishes to build a genuine respectful relationship with the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working at a demanding but rewarding job, being physically active
daily, spending time with my teenager, enjoying family and friends,
planning trips/vacations, looking for a way to give back
and...looking for someone special with whom to share all my immense
good fortune (um...not actual fortune! :) )
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting sh*t done. As a single mother and manager for many years I
know how to get stuff done. :)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At the moment what I want the next decade to look like for me.
Hopefully it will include: successfully "launching" my child to
university and beyond, focusing of health/fitness, socializing with
loved ones, traveling, working overseas on a short term basis,
volunteering for a green or social justice cause and finding a SO.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
meeting buddies for a glass of wine in our local pub and very often
going for a late work out at the 24-hour goodlife.
