Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update: 2015 09/17:
Taking a break from the whole online dating thing for a bit.
Who I am:
Socially, I'm a friendly introvert; I'm happiest in the company of
someone I like, but I'm not fond of crowds. I'm more of a listener
than a talker. Or at least that's what people tell me :-P
I devour books, learn new stuff for the fun of it and can keep up a
conversation with almost anyone about their areas of expertise
without getting bored or left behind.
Got a sense of humour that runs toward snark, sarcasm and
self-deprecation. I don't take myself too seriously. Love bad puns
and dirty jokes ;-)
Fond of animals, provided they aren't trying to kill me or bite my
I like to drive, to walk or to wander. That means road trips,
exploring cities on foot, or even just going outside to clear my
head and gather my thoughts. Stuck inside in the middle of winter
makes me stir crazy.
Who I'm looking for:
I have a serious weakness for women who are geeky/nerdy to some
degree. By that I mean shy, introverted, intelligent, focused,
eccentric, rational or any combination of the above. If that
describes you, message me :-)
The short version:
Strong minded, smartassed, introverted geek who has his life
together, seeking same.
Wow, you read this all the way to the end? ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm actually pretty happy with how my life's turned out. Shocking,
I know :-) But there's a lot going on for me to be happy about, and
my stress levels have never been lower.
Got a stable job with excellent coworkers and a laid-back boss.
What's more I actually enjoy it, occasional 5am wake-ups
notwithstanding. Also, dental, yay!
Got my own place, my own car and zero debt to worry about. I live
within walking distance of my work, two grocery stores and several
places to eat that aren't fast food. And if I want the amenities of
a city, Kingston is a twenty minute drive.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking, listening, learning and cracking bad jokes.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen, water, food, shelter, sunlight and being a smartass
Or, if I'm being serious...
My family, friends, a computer with a working wifi connection, and
the contents of my bookshelf...
And being a smartass. I could survive without being a smartass, but
I wouldn't call that living.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the universe and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The honest answer to this question is "working". Hey, someone's got
to, and I'm heroically letting my fellow bakers get a head start on
the weekend :-)
So instead of a typical friday night, how about a typical day off?
These days I'd be:
Playing games with my friends. We've got our own TS server, and
perhaps a dozen different games we all enjoy.
Curled up with a good book.
Hanging out with my offline friends, or my little brother.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to :-)
If you're clever, funny, kind, shy/introverted and looking for some
or all of the above in a partner.
If you're wondering why I haven't messaged you
On average, I send a couple of messages per week, more if life
doesn't get in the way, less if I'm taking a break from this site.
This is primarily because I try to write at least a couple of
paragraphs per message, both to show that I'm genuinely interested
in the woman I'm contacting, and to avoid getting lost in the flood
of generic "Hey, what's up?" messages that other people send.
If I've viewed your profile more than once and/or liked you, but
haven't gotten in touch, the likeliest explanation is that I'm
either still figuring out what to write or I'm taking a break from
messaging people for a bit.
