Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*5/26/13 - Not going to delete the profile, but I am in a
relationship now, thank you to all the fun folks who I've been
keeping in touch with. Still always looking for new board game
*1/4/13 - Happy New Year all! I think I am finally caught up on
messages and appreciate all the kind words from folks. Here's to a
better 2013 for everyone around the world.*
*12/21/12 update: First off, the world didn't end, so that's
something. Secondly I apologize to the folks who have messaged me
in the past couple weeks whom I have no responded to, had a family
emergency and personal/social sites are taking a backseat right
now. I'll catch up soon, I promise. Happy Holidays!*
I moved to the Seattle region around the end of 2011 from my
Canadian homeland, however have spent most of my life traveling and
have moved multiple times so this is nothing new. I love going out
to a pub/restaurant with friends, game nights (card, board, video,
you name it) and spending time with my dog. I have a great job
which has brought me here now.
During the summer I enjoy camping with good friends (or alone on
occasion), throwing a BBQ for friends & enjoying the outdoors
in general. In winter I tend to hibernate and stay indoors except
for the occasional foray out to the hot tub for a soak.
At one time I spoke English, French & Spanish fluently along
with some conversational Italian...but have sadly lost most of
those skills. I have traveled many places around the world but have
no desire to stop experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a lot! Travelling when I can. Enjoying every moment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Taking charge when no one else will.
- Solving complex puzzles in unorthodox ways - I grew up watching
McGyver with my dad, duct tape solves everything.
- Kicking ass at scrabble, Ticket to Ride, Cards Against Humanity
or one of a dozen other games. Challenge me! :P
- Picking out amazing new Scotches to try.
- Tackling home improvement projects - not always with duct
- Speed reading.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No clue, I've never asked.
*I have now been told that my laugh is distinctly memorable, but in
a good way* ... Take that as you want =)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love sci-fi/fantasy novels, spy thrillers, some standard fiction
and even non-fiction from time to time.
I am less picky about movies - my tastes range from sci-fi through
suspense, horror to the occassional chick flick. I back away from
anything with really horrible writing or stone faced actors. Alfred
Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief" is my favorite movie of all
Most of the TV I watch (when I actually get around to it) is drama;
Sherlock, White Collar, The Mentalist, Hawaii Five-0, etc. with
some sci-fi mixed in; Eureka and Warehouse 13 for example. From the
"reality" side I do love The Amazing Race and enjoyed The Sing-Off
before it was cancelled :(
My musical tastes are a mystery even to myself as I enjoy specific
acts/groups rather than genres as a whole. I listen to styles from
A capella & gregorian chant through classic rock, classical
through some modern pop. I've recently gotten in to the YouTube
artist scene and am always searching for something new to
I love good food. I will try (almost) anything at least once and
enjoy experimenting with new spice and flavour combinations in the
kitchen with good company. Cooking with a partner is probably one
of the most challenging and rewarding activities you can take on at
home. Home renovations are the only thing I can think of that can
cause an equal number of arguments and amazing moments.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Adrenaline & Caffeine (tea, not coffee please!)
My car (well, a car anyway, or a personal jetpack, or some mode of
speedy personal transportation)
...too many other things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Many things. Work is often up there unfortunately, but when I can
get that out of my head I'm often thinking about odds and
predicting a person's next move. I love to read people and figure
out what they would say or do next in a situation.
Otherwise I guess I'm thinking about making plans with
friends/family, or planning my next getaway or how to solve a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends at a pub, hosting a board game night,
going to a movie, playing a video game and relaxing, spending
quality time with a special someone, looking for a poker game (or
hosting one) or driving quickly away from it all!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't tend to keep much hidden, so if you ask I will tell
Here's a tidbit - I have developed an absurd fondness for the Lego
brand video games, especially if played with a partner =)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to chat, you are interested in getting to know me, or you
just feel like it (I can't stop you anyway :P)
