Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As you may have guessed... I'm originally from the East Coast and
value my roots even though I've been here in Toronto for a number
of years and now call this home (it took longer than you might
expect for that to happen). And since moving to the city I've come
to love all that it has to offer, be it the variety of great food,
concerts, festivals or the unique neighborhoods that it has to
I didn't travel much when I was younger but I've been trying to
make up for it. Most of my travels have been in city centres but I
did manage a week driving around Scotland that left me with little
doubt as to why Nova Scotia became new Scotland... Around town I'm
much like anyone else, I enjoy getting out with friends and try new
restaurants as well as visiting old favourites. Definitely more of
a pub guy than a club guy when it comes to going out.
Other odd little tidbits about me... I'll confess to be one of the
few guys in Canada that couldn't skate if his life depended on it.
As well.... despite being from NS I hate lobster... you're welcome
to have my share. I read a fair bit although I have to admit the
guilty pleasures are sci-fi and mystery novels (cotton candy for
the brain I like to say).
I'm looking for someone intelligent and outgoing who's willing to
try new things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being unintentionally funny or so I'm told. That's all right... I
dish it out as good as I get. I also play a mean game of pool, make
a good taste tester and do a pretty good job of ensuring there
aren't any left overs.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that I'm actually as tall as I said I am (apparently that's
something a lot of guys lie about with internet dating ?!). Beyond
that ... probably my tendency to use unnecessarily large words...
yes I get mocked for this... and yes, I'm being slowly

I enjoy reading quite a bit, mainly business stuff or sci-fi and
fantasy... interesting to see the Game of Thrones being so popular
these days. As for what's rocking my ipod I enjoy a lot of stuff
and have been to a number of concerts over the past year... mainly
small venue stuff like the Phoenix and Mod Club. Some stuff you
would find on my ipod Mumford and Sons, Arcade Fire, Postal
Service, Yeasayer, Death Cab For Cutie, Phoenix, XX, Of Monsters
and Men and Patrick Watson
In terms of shows .... Breaking Bad, How I Met Your Mother, Big
Bang Theory, Dexter, The Wire.

BBQs or at least a good steak every once and while
Strangely (for me) yoga may soon make the list... Started going in
the summer and while I'm still as flexible as an iron rod, it's a
great work out.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how texting and walking is likely to be the next big safety
campaign... and unless you're in a circus act... you shouldn't be
riding a bike and texting at the same time ... I swear I see this
at least once a week.

Have a road bike and need a ride partner... just bought one this
summer and would love a training partner, have an extra concert
ticket or you have a new resto that you want to try or finished a
great read that you'd like to recommend.
