Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Self-summary? Depends on the day! Hmmm....terrible typist, honest
(sometimes to a fault), hardworking (trying to change that a bit to
put energy elsewhere to more social activism and justice), loyal to
friends, left-wing politically but conservative financially except
for the once a year I go clothes shopping. Ha! Kidding. But I can
be a pretty cheap date! Self-deprecating, sometimes to a fault! A
bit of a country hick sometimes, a bit of a traveller sometimes,
mostly a city guy at the moment. Cyclist. Tell you more when we
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to balance worklife with new (old) house repairs, with new
and old friends in my life, with music and dance, with trying to do
my little bit to make this a livable vibrant city and world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Oh dear, I rather think I'm somewhat good at a lot of things, but
not the expert at much, a sort of Jack of all trades, master of
none. I can pick out the rhythmic beat to a tune and move to it,
but I don't know if you could call it dancing!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure about that. Some have said my smile...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to list, but for books, I'd pick out The Name of the Rose
by Umberto Eco as a book I could read again, and just about
anything by Javier Marias. Nonfiction, noir mysteries and
headspinning SciFi. Music, almost any style is great if it's done
well, but I tend to gravitate to jazz, funk, soul. Movies - I don't
see as many as I would like. This year Life of Pi (Good, not
great), The End of Time by Peter Mettler (some great visuals but
all over the map), The Master (great mise-en-scene). Past
favourites: Pan's Labyrinth, The Matrix, Eating Raoul, The
Food, I'll try just about anything. I can cook but the repertoire
is a bit limited (Note to self, broaden the food horizons!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ooh, I'm trying to pare down the things I need, but... my legs to
cycle and walk to there and back and dance, my eyesight to read and
see the world around me, my ears to listen to music and the dreams
and worries of my friends, my lips, tongue and mouth to taste wine
and chocolate and other lips, my arms to embrace and hug my friends
(and to tie my shoes with the hands at the end of those arms) and a
warm safe place to sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The state of the world, how to direct my energy in a positive way
(and make sure I have the energy!), trying not to think too much
and be in the moment. Why are showerheads so expensive? How to be
courageous in a normal way, should I fill out these essays on
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting at home reading a book and listening to music, out with
friends or on my own, dancing, listening to music, watching a
movie, changing the leaky showerhead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It wouldn't be private if I admitted here, now would it!

it may turn out to be. Peace...
