My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where to begin.... well, my name is Ken, I'm half American (born) and half Canadian (raised) so I guess you could call me AmeriKenadian. I apologize for the lack of great photos as I'm a little camera-shy, though I had some taken recently. Turns out I'm not horribly disfigured after all. Who knew?

I spend a lot of time looking for a profile which inspires me to send a message and when I do, it's an original with nothing copy/pasted, because I believe that the woman I'm looking for is worth every moment of my time and effort. Just be warned, since I write what I'm inspired to write, if you end up with a message about David Hasselhoff, it's your fault.

I don't like referring to myself as a manly man, because it implies that I'm not in touch with my feelings, or even lack them entirely, because I'm not afraid to admit that I get choked up about feel-good stories and sad stories alike (damn you, American Idol/America's Got Talent/The Voice), but I do/have done manly things, such as 1/4 mile drag racing or being a lumberjack for 8 seasons when I lived in Canada, which means you may come home one day to find I've chopped down your dead tree, made firewood, kindling and a chopping block, made a pet out of that black bear that keeps coming into the city (his name is Bob), and made myself an ice cube igloo in your back yard because it was a sweltering 75 degrees and I was homesick, and despite popular belief, lumberjacks do not wear flannel. Well okay, some do, but they are also the ones who shower once a week, and whose stench gets trapped in your hair and follows you everywhere you go for the next 3 hours (true story), so keep that in mind next time you see a bearded hipster wearing flannel and laced-up work boots. Oh, but lumberjacks really do wear flannel because it's warm, you say? Alright, well get back to me when it's -70 and the wolves are marking their territory on your leg after mistaking you for a tree. :)

I'm not overbearingly cheerful, but I don't get too down about things, because I am a problem solver. No matter what the problem, if I don't immediately come up with a solution, just give me some time. As such, if you are of the solution solver variety, that is, one who finds problems to solutions to avoid taking action and changing things, especially when that change has to come from within yourself, then I may also solve my problem of you by making us single again.

I have a knack for repairing all kinds of things, too. Note I said "repair" and not "fix" because as my college professor would say, "A fix is something you get on the street." A wise man, he. It's a skill I've honed since I was a wee lad, figuring out how to take things apart to see how they worked, then figuring out how to put them back together, then figuring out where all of the left-over pieces go.

You could say I'm a little old-fashioned in some ways. I have fondly remembered a time and place where people give their word with a handshake, help their neighbors, cut their own grass, make their beds every morning, put the toilet lid down, raise their children on garden fresh vegetables instead of candy, wash their hands before handling food, train their pets to behave (and their children, which should go without saying, but these days...), value self-sufficiency, prefer homes that are cozy to those that echo, and getting high or intoxicated isn't a prerequisite to having a good time... and then I woke up.

With that said, I'm not religious and I don't believe in Karma as the Buddhists do, where a person's actions affect not only their current life but also future lives, but I do believe that for the most part, you get out what you put in. So, I put in respect, honesty and integrity, and ask for the same in return. I once put in an axolotl, a platypus and a blob fish, now I'm here.

I'm looking for a woman with more to offer than cleavage photos, who has an adventurous spirit, is good at compromising, doesn't put on more layers of makeup than there are layers of sediment in the ocean, or wear so much perfume that birds fall from trees when she walks by, possesses the intelligence and self awareness to understand that this profile is a representation of herself and puts thought and effort into it, just like she would an actual relationship. I know you're out there somewhere, and when I find you: /watch?v=Ud5Gh4oEIS8

TL,DR
I'm the guy your mother wishes you were dating. Here's hoping you get along with your mother, but if not, here's hoping she's on this site, too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping everyone else with theirs. I'm the guy you call when you need to get shit done, and done well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not holding grudges. If you ever manage to get me to hold a grudge against you, you deserve some kind of award. Like grapes. Sour ones.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I haven't asked, but there was this one time (at band camp) when I took an hallucinogenic drug*, had an out-of-body experience and thought to myself, "Damn, I missed a spot all around my mouth when I was shaving."

*For the record, the hardest drug I've ever taken was a Tylenol 3 for a headache 14 years ago, excluding the occasional alcoholic beverage here and there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I haven't done much reading of books for years, but a few I'll never forget until I'm old and decrepit, so like, a couple of years from now:
I Am A Bunny - The best kids book ever and my favorite as a child. I pestered my mother endlessly to read it to me and memorized it before I could read. Nowadays, I buy it for everyone else's kids. Surprisingly, "everyone else" now hates me.
Where the Red Fern Grows - A heart-wrenching story for pre-teens/teens about a boy and his dogs. I cried.
The Bone Doll's Twin - One of many sci-fi/fantasy books I used to read, but it stuck out as being unique and a great story.

Movies:
The Princess Bride (my favorite)/Sunshine/The Sixth Sense/A.I. Artificial Intelligence/Les Miserables/Road to Perdition/The Machinist/My Girl/Donnie Darko/Kung Fu Hustle/The Shawshank Redemption/Million Dollar Baby/The Illusionist/Dumb and Dumber/Tucker and Dale vs. Evil/Inception/The Count of Monte Cristo/The Green Mile/No Country For Old Men/The Last Of The Mohicans/There Will Be Blood, Good Will Hunting, Memento, The Matrix, V For Vendetta... I like movies. A lot.

Musical interests are varied, but include:

I LOVE FOOD!
Which is rather convenient, considering its conduciveness to my penchant for living. I don't really have a favorite. I like finding new places to eat, and I eat a lot. Sometimes I force... I mean, ask, the server to surprise me with anything from the menu. It's fun. For me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Aside from the obvious choices like, friends and family, air, water, food, gravity, etc:

My camera.
Music. Listening to some now, in fact.
Integrity. You can never have too much.
Wide open spaces.
Snow during the holidays.
Someone to share awesome moments with. Like that time I split my scalp open and later pulled the 6 staples out myself. You had to be there. No, really. I needed help taking pictures of it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why someone felt the need to report a couple of my nice photographs, which were an important part of my profile by visually representing one of my hobbies, even though they didn't have me in them. I mean, really, was that necessary? Also, you missed one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dodging stalkers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like how this question just assumes that everyone is a blabbermouth and therefore willing to admit something private, and in a coercive way, tries to make you feel guilty for not admitting something, as if I'm going to fall for that.

Anyway, I once had to be rescued from a mountain top. Don't tell anybody.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you are wishing I had sent, or would send, you a message. Sometimes, I peruse profiles and keep an open tab to go back and write a message at a later time/date, since all of my messages are custom made with no copy and paste and can take awhile, and then sometimes my computer decides to re-start itself and close the window, and then sometimes I can't find your profile again, and so sometimes, just because I viewed your profile and didn't message you, it doesn't mean that I wasn't interested. Sometimes.

... you don't smoke anything. Except maybe the tires on your car (bonus points).

I know this sounds shallow, but I'm only physically attracted to girls who are physically healthy, as in, not overweight. You don't have to be good at sports or toned and work out, in fact I don't work out at all (though people think I do), just please be a healthy body weight.

Also, the 29-35 age range is a preference, not a mandate.

So don't delay, send a message today, and I'll pay the shipping. All messages received are guaranteed a reply, or your money back. Refunds for minutes wasted reading this profile are also available upon request.
