Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a tall, hazel-eyed human male originally from Lethbridge, but
having lived in Edmonton for two years now. I have a bachelors
degree in biology, which so far hasn't proven to be of much
I'm a bit of a nerd. I get really excited reading scientific
research journals. I enjoy sci-fi and fantasy movies and books, and
I play plenty of videogames. I'm not obsessive about any of the
above, but I probably get more enjoyment from them than most people
I tend to be pretty quiet, but just because I don't have much to
say doesn't mean I'm not interested. I don't really get small talk,
and am more comfortable with silence than strings of words without
real meaning. Yet I like discussing ideas and philosophies and
having contemplative chats over tea.
I've been told I'm a "romantic" but also "too nice".
I'm curious, caring, honest, and secretly idealistic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I was five I really wanted to be an astronaut. It was a
crushing blow when I realized tv had lied to me and you couldn't
just hop in a ship, spend half an hour dodging asteroids, and then
explore a variety of lush alien worlds. After that I decided I
wanted to be an inventor, like Donatello.
Nowadays Plan A is a masters degree. I've started working on
Master's degree at U of A. I'm in the Forestry program, but my
focus is on conservation biology.
Should all else fail Plan B is windmill repair man or Captain of an
airship. Someday I would like to ride in a mine cart, have my very
own ball pit, visit an active volcano, and run in one of those
giant hamster balls.
I've yet to cross an ocean. Eventually I'd like to experience as
much of the world as possible probably starting with Guam, Iceland,
Yemen, and New Zealand. All of this will be much easier once I have
finished with school and can focus on becoming an airship captain.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Walking. I like to wander around town, or rollerblade in the
summer. And I enjoy hiking in the mountains, but don't get out
there enough. I'm good at Super Mario Bros, multiple choice exams,
and drinking Slurpees.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm practicing moving silently as a first step towards becoming
Batman, so hopefully the answer is "nothing, because I go unnoticed
In reality it's probably my height, given that I am 6'4.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lately I've mostly been reading books for school, but some of them
have proven to be really interesting, like "The Song of the Dodo"
by David Quammen. Last year I read through Lois McMaster Bjold's
"Vorkosigan Saga" and Hugh Howley's Silo trilogy. I also recently
read "Dracula", which was surprisingly good.
My favorite movie is probably still "The Lion King"
Some shows I enjoy watching: Dexter, Sherlock, Firefly, House of
Cards, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Community, The West Wing,
Breaking Bad, Animaniacs
I listen to instrumental music, stuff that good to have in the
background while running around but isn't too distracting.
I eat poultry or fish, but no mammals. I got sick of people asking
why this is and came up with an elaborate story involving cannibals
and some very noble whales, the truth is red meat is just far less
healthy than white, and I don't really like pork.
However, I will occasionally eat bacon. Bacon seems to end up on a
lot of things like chicken burgers or salads or soups or pasta
sauces, and it's tasty enough for me to go along with it though I
do try to avoid it if its at all convenient to do so.
I also like to consume a large quantity of fruit, dairy products,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A comfy bed with firm pillows and non-crinkley sheets
A good pair of sneakers
My high tolerance of lactose
Nintendo, TV, Internet, or similar distractions
A tight knit group of like-minded yet varying individuals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What it would be like to be a superhero
The above things in various combinations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting around with a few good friends.
I live in a cool house, in a sweet neighbourhood, with some of my
closest friends. I get to spend my time conversing, sharing meals,
playing boardgames, video games, and/or mocking cheesy horror
movies without ever leaving the house. Part of my goal in moving
here was to get out of my comfort zone and gain new experiences but
I need some help with that... Sometimes I let my friends drag me
out for dancing. I'm fairly certain I look ridiculous while doing
so, but usually have a great time regardless.
Also, my computer was very insistent that in that last sentence I
actually meant to type "I'm fairly anti-cancer" which I suppose is
true. If you consider yourself strongly pro-cancer we may need to
battle to the death, or at least engage in a lively debate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often forget that I'm a grown-up. I find it strange that I'm able
to do things like have a say in who the leaders of the country are,
consume alcohol, and pilot a thousand pound machine at high speeds
through populated areas. I'm even a productive member of society
who signs leases and pays bills and buys vegetables. Who do I check
with to make sure that gaining all of these responsibilities wasn't
some sort of mistake?
