Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a working professional in Calgary, and am "close to but not
quite" a native Calgarian. I actually became somewhat bored with my
profession a few years back so embarked on a new profession. At
this point I am actively engaged in both which provides me with a
fair bit of flexibility in life.
I am kind hearted, thoughtful, and have a general love for life. I
enjoy the simple things like hanging out with friends or spending
the day in Banff exploring. I word hard, and am definitely not
afraid of plain old fashioned hard work. When the work is done, it
is great to just leave it in the rear view mirror for a while and
do "fun stuff".
I can cook a reasonable great meal. I will freely admit that I am a
better sous chef then an executive chef, however, I can make you at
least a few things that will have you coming back for more...I
Ultimately I am definitely missing someone great to share all of
life's great experiences with. As much as I am enjoying life, there
are only so many BBQs with friends, or dinners out, that you can go
to where everyone else is a couple. Table of 7? Table of 5? Being
that last "odd" number in the group is not always fun;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I guess working should never be listed first, but that is reality.
Once the work day is over, I spend time trying to figure out what
life is all about. I love to spend time people "watching and
listening", as I am confident everyone has something to offer in
I just recently started running again for the first time in a few
years. I just finished my first half marathon (Stampede Road Race).
It's a pretty sweet feeling I must say. I think I am hooked on this
running going now;-)
I enjoy hiking and biking in the evenings or on weekends. You will
not find me mountain climbing, but I try to challenge myself as
much as possible.
It is probably time to try to find another great place in the world
to visit. I have been to a few great places over the years like NYC
(several times), Mexico, etc., but nothing super exciting lately.
My job had me working in San Diego for many years, which I miss a
lot now. Lately I have spent a lot of time working in Houston. It
has been great through the early spring for marathon training and
patio weather, and the folks I work with are great but they are a
bunch of guys!! Some female companionship on these trips would be a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Waking up insanely early (lol)
Giving and receiving back rubs? :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is not something I have ever figured out...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Favs gotta be a great suspense flick where you cannot
actually figure out the ending til the end. Tough to find these it
seems, but gotta love em. Love lots of great action/adventure,
comedies, even the odd chick flick. Favorite movies include
District 9, most of the Star Wars series, a good laugh with the
Music: Well, my iPod has thousands of songs, and if you went
through it you would not be able to answer this question. So it is
equally tough for me. I still love music from the 80s, but I like a
lot of new music as well. My iPod has everything from Led Zeppelin,
to Rihanna (I know), Eminem, Garth Brooks, Imagine Dragons...you
name it. I try to have music playing just about whenever I can, no
matter what I am doing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a bit of an "I am not sure what to put here
category"...so...I will just list some random thoughts and then
update it every few hours...or not...
Friends and family? (I am sure this is on every single profile in
here, so let's just call this one plagiarism and leave it at
Great food -> I really love to enjoy a great meal. I try to eat
super healthy as much as possible. But on the weekends, I love to
eat at least at few things that are "not so healthy" to enjoy life
a little. Favorite foods are too many to list...steak, chicken,
seafood, veggies, spicy, tomatoey, sweet, you name it. I love it
Water -> This is the good stuff.
My nieces -> Okay, this is a repeat of
"family"...however...these two girls have taught me more about life
then most adults have, so they are worthy of a special
mention/their own section.
Mother Nature -> I have taken her for granted at times...she
gives us a lot...working on a greater appreciation for her.
Coffee -> This could be #1 on my list. That sounds bad. Maybe
you can replace it on my list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think I will spend more time thinking about this one before
filling this field in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not sure what typical means these days. For me sometimes this is
hanging out with friends on a patio somewhere snacking, and
laughing after a long week of work. On other Fridays I might just
be going for a power walk with the pooch and babysitting my nieces.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is that I have realized that there are no good pictures of me
that exist. I am gonna have to hit the "iPhone photo shoot circuit"
in the coming days and weeks and post some candid shots of me that
I actually like...
