My name is John. I live in beautiful East York with my two boys (16 & 14), a dog and a cat. The boys live with me most days, the dog and cat more so.
I am an optimist, inclined to see the good in people, animals and life. I am honest, empathetic, affectionate, and smarter than the average bear. I have a curious mind and eclectic interests. I still have all my original parts, including teeth. I am introspective, thoughtful and calm. I rarely get riled, and I don't sweat the small stuff. I am left-of-center politically, with a laid-back personality, a strong belief in personal responsibility, and an inclination to live and let live. I believe that doing the right thing is one of the secrets to a happy life. I love the outdoors and am friendly toward trees. My sense of humour tends toward the cerebral. I love puns and the absurd and am especially fond of comic music.
Generally I'm in good health but not so fit as I would like as I am too sedentary and I enjoy junk food far more than I should. Eating healthy is a goal but I sometimes struggle with motivation. I walk a lot and cycle in the good weather but I don't have an established exercise routine. I would like to do something about that but I tend to over-indulge in exercise and as a result I have a bunch of minor aches and pains that make development of a regular routine problematic. In some regards I am my own worst enemy.
