Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up overseas in the Middle East, and came to Canada when I
was 18. I still regard Dhahran as my home, and I visit whenever I
can. I think it definitely gives me perspective on Canadian
culture, but also limits my understanding of its nuances.
I like open-minded people who have opinions and think about the
world - not only it's problems, but the way it functions and who's
in it. I enjoy learning how other people's minds work and how they
interpret reality. I find myself attracted to critical thinkers who
articulate themselves in a way that permits discussion. I love
debates and intellectually grasping how we live now and problems
that we face - as a generation, and as a collective contemporary
I also like shitting about, laughing about snot and criticizing
Orange is the New Black's Laura Prepon's eyebrow game.
My hobbies are photography (though unfortunately not of late),
horticulture, and graphic design. I freelance my work, and I design
for some organizations and clubs on campus.
I'm patient, but still don't take shit; I like the idea of being
gender-blind, but I don't think I am; I'm sarcastic and sometimes
funny, in a Wanda Sykes meets Liz Lemon kinda way; and I am
definitely philosophical in the meandering drunk sense.
I like men who can laugh at themselves, are charming, funny,
playful and intellectual. Also dancing is a must. A man who can
move his hips is a man who can move my hips.
Message me if you have questions or if any of this interests you (
or if none if this makes sense). I'd much rather meet and talk,
than talk and talk. Walk the walk with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm going through university, hoping to get a Major in Genetics,
and a Minor in Ethics. We'll see how things turn out. If not, I can
brush up on my pole dancing.

MUSIC: I'm going to be honest, I don't really listen to music.
(Does that make me souless?). I don't find the endless search for

Ocean, Sky Ferreira, Beyoncé, Tame Impala, Van She, Spoon, Solange,
