Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So about me... I'm a positive, adventurous guy with lots of
interesting hobbies and a pretty full and happy life. I've had
piles of great experiences so far and look forward to having many
more. I like to try new things, so it may look like I’m going
through a bucket list, but really, new interests are added all the
time; it’s just who I am.
It's important for you to know that I'm polyamorous. I've been
happily married for over a decade and have a younger daughter that
I adore. I would love to meet other poly people to be friends,
lovers and adventurers together. My wife and I don't date as a
couple - we have separate partners and don’t usually play together.
It's important that everyone get along though, neither of us is
interested in segregating our lives. If you'd like to know more
about our style of non-monogamy, please ask.
Another important part of my life is my child. If you’re a parent,
you know how much of your time this absorbs, so it would be a bonus
if you have a child in elementary school or close to it. We love
fun family camping and day trips to the aquarium or park
One of the things that I really enjoy is to pick up new skills and
have new experiences. I suppose I'm a bit dilettantish, but I have
found some pretty interesting life-long hobbies.
I love the outdoors and really enjoy camping and hiking. In
addition to hockey, I swim/bike/run (did Ironman Canada 2011), ski,
golf (on occasion) and am up for pretty much anything
I'm also really into woodworking and construction and have pretty
much renovated my entire house. Last year built a huge detached
garage on my property and am currently rebuilding the deck. I find
it really relaxing to be working with my hands...
Music is another hobby I pursue with various degrees of vigor.
Mainly I focus on guitar, but have been known to play banjo, drums,
alto sax, and given enough beer I will even sing.
If you're still reading. then bravo...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, building, exploring, laughing, enjoying, living.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
If I had to pick one thing, it would be that I'm really good at
being kinda good at a whole lot of stuff. I'm really a jack of all
trades and master of none.

I forgot to shave this morning.
I hate shaving, but I also don't like beards. It's a conundrum.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: all over the map. Pretty much everything but death metal and
really twangy misogynistic new country.
Books: sadly I don't read as much as I used to. I generally lean
towards sci-fi and fantasy but get into all sorts of stuff. I just
finished Seveneves and The Martian - both were fantastic! The
unabridged version of The Stand may be my favourite book
Movies: I'll watch anything. Faves include Shawshank Redemption,
Children of Men, Mr and Mrs Smith, Princess Bride, Memento, the
original Star Wars trilogy , LOTR and geez I dunno there are so
many... I have a weakness for bad 80's action flicks too.
TV: Really like Game of Thrones, Archer, Sense8, House of Cards. I
watch more movies and less serial TV now that we cut the cable and
only have Netflix.
Food: Probably Southern barbecue. If I had to pick one dish, it
would be Memphis Blues brisket.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends. Pat answer numero uno.
Something to make music with. Luckily I can whistle.
Tools. If I had to pick one, it would be a hammer.
Coffee. Sad but true.
A good book.
A towel. Just because.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My kid - making sure she has what she needs (not necessarily what

Technology - I'm fascinated by where tech is going to go in the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
So random. My last fours Fridays were:
- watching a friends band at the Commodore
- sitting by a lake in the Okanagan and doing a crossword
- playing Battlefield 4 (I got a new PC which is sooo fast)
- making cherry jam
But usually Fridays are a slower evening to wind down from the
week. Saturdays are more my going-out night.
