I didn't know how to start off explaining myself, so I asked my
friends what they thought. I felt their idea to keep it real and
list my shortcomings was although unique on a website like this, I
opted to go the facebook route where you sound like you have the
best life in the world.
So I looked in the mirror and asked myself what I thought. This
yielded much better results. So here it goes - I think I might be
the coolest guy on this dating site. I'm a lazy guy, NOO I'm mean,
laid-back, (yeah, that sounds much more believable) but focused
about what moves and inspires me. I don't take myself too seriously
which took my 20's to figure out. The relationships in my life are
most important to me. I'm from Winnipeg originally so keeping
family and friends close is challenging sometimes as I have to deal
with work, distance, and catching flights on time. Also, I guess
because I moved away from them, saying my relationships with family
and friends are the most important is a bit of a lie. But ah, what
are gonna you do right??
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to make a living for myself doing what I enjoy. That
would be my micro goal. Ultimately, I'm trying to steer clear from
a lot of the societal traps out there and strive for things I want
in my life - security, meaningful work, more leisure. Also, I still
hold on to my dream of being able to slam dunk one day. Need to
work on the vertical a bit though....or a lot!
I’m really good at
Putting smiles on faces. Probably one of my favourite things is to
witness someone not being able to hold their drink in because they
just couldn't suppress a laugh from something I said or did. That's
one of the best feelings.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I usually sneak up on people from behind, so they.....just
kidding. Probably my balls. My eyeballs that is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite movie - Office Space for sure. Dead Poets Society is up
there, Godfather is up there. Food - pizza, pickles. Books -
Ishmael, The Stand, In Praise of Slow, Tuesdays with Morrie. Music
- the Arcade Fire, Neil Young, The Boss, The Hip, Beastie Boys.
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family
Sense of Humour
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Nice try OK Cupid - you can't put my in a box like that! I think
about a lot of different things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hot date [BEEP] (Lie detector beep)
Exciting night out with friends [BEEP]
At a friend’s house watching a movie [BEEP]
Okay.....at home watching a movie [BEEP]
Fine......at home enjoying some alone-time [BEEP]
............at home crying in the bath [DING]
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm, what can I write that will allow me to show my vulnerability
and still make me seem cool. Kind of like telling a boss
interviewing you for a job that your biggest weakness is "working
too hard". Okay, I was a mascot for a CFL team for 3 years.
You should message me if
You're cool with turning off your phone when we hang out and you'd
expect the same from me. I'll leave you with this - I know that
when it comes to online dating, because there are so many people
out there it can be easy to fall for the false belief that you're
going to stumble on someone's profile where they meet every single
criteria you're hoping for. Better to follow Louis CK's 70% rule to
be content -
