Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been described as a positively masculine man who is
compassionate, expressive, genuine, artistic, emotional, liberal
and a giver.
I am certainly a weekend adventurer. During the week, I spend most
of my evenings taking bike rides, exercising, having some nice
dinners with friends, or just catching up on stuff. When the
weekend comes, I am usually ready to go kayaking, wander to
waterfalls, have fun in Seattle, or head off to Canada to spend
time with my friends in Vancouver. I love Vancouver, and about half
of my social life is there.
So I am here looking for a companion to share in my weekday
evenings and/or weekend adventures. I am looking for a woman who
soothes my soul just by being near me. A woman whose energy makes
my heart melt.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am doing my best to live life in an ethical, compassionate,
loving and expressive way. I'm not perfect, but who is?
One could say that I take pride in being different. I enjoy
thumbing my nose at society and choosing to take a different path.
Our society promotes living in isolation, materialism, greed,
ignorance, rudeness and violence. In response I gave away more than
half of my stuff, moved into a big house with 5 other people,
stopped watching TV, embraced being empathetic and polite, and try
to avoid all forms of violent media/entertainment.
As for work, I am very dedicated to the career path that I have
chosen. I have been an educator for 16 years, and currently develop
online education focused upon patient safety and healthcare worker
This winter, I plan to start a website and pass out information
promoting avoidance of all that is violent (e.g., violent TV,
movies, games, etc.). I believe that the first step in reducing
violence in our society is to re-sensitize ourselves to it. Is this
idealistic? Perhaps. I am a dreamer, but not the only one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Whatever I put my heart, mind and soul into. I have taken up many
hobbies over the years, but I became bored with some of them.
Others I had to give up due to my deteriorating knees. These days I
am really into sea kayaking, hiking to waterfalls or hot springs,
photography, gem collecting, massage and saxophone.

Besides my height and eyes, people tend to notice that my energy is
very different. People tend to open up to me very quickly because I

I watch very little TV because I find most shows to be increasingly
violent, morbid, spreading fear or just annoying in how people
communicate. I just don't agree with most of the messages our
society bombards us with.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My close friends, intimacy, the ocean, waterfalls, hot springs and
green mossy logs/rocks.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am living proof that a person can choose to completely change
their approach to life, overcome an ultra-conservative, military
upbringing and reprogram their thought processes.
