Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm mostly pretty laid back. Kind of go with the flow. Although I
have fought for things I believe in. I can be quite
I try to keep myself in reasonable shape. Exercise is important to
me. I try to keep healthy.
I like to be creative. I have an interest in how things are made. I
like the Arts but more in a small 'a' way. It's just something
interesting to take in.
I have been called an emotional "CareGiver" and that surprised me.
I mentioned this to a close friend and she said it was true. It
might just be a phase that I'm going through though.
I'm not the life of the party guy. I don't need to be the center of
attention. I'm the kind of guy that you can rely on being there for
you. I care more in a few special people in my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Off and on I had been trying to help people deal with the effects
of past life events. Offer support when I can. I have cut back on
this even though it is important to me. Time to take better care of
Other than that I design non-sexy electronic products (no iPad) to
pay the bills. It's challenging and creative, and I like it.
I'm thinking of retiring soon but I'm not there yet. I'm looking
forward to all the hobbies I never get to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
As I said above, I design electronics for a living. I think I am
pretty good at it. While I hate the term "thinking outside the box"
it does apply to me. I think it is necessary if you need to come up
with creative solutions.
Compassion and sensitivity. Sometimes more than I would like. Ow. I
have been told that I communicate very well, person to person. But
I think that really depends on the subject.
I'm not sure I should put this here but I doubt many people will
see it so it probably doesn't matter. This was part of a message I
got from someone I write to. (and care about)
I cried reading the last message you sent. You have such a
beautiful soul if you only knew. You are a very special person. I
know you are not much for God but I do thank him for you. Whether
you believe it or not I want you to know that God has used you to
answer one of my prayers.
That still makes me emotional when I read it. But very few will end
up hearing the why behind it. To say it's personal is an

I listen to classical music most of the time. While I occasionally
like my ACDC loud I tend to not go there that often. I have never
been a big fan of Country music. I like Tanya Tucker's "It's A
Little Too Late" and some older songs but I have been listening to
more current female "country" singers. Some of it ends up making me
cry so I tend to keep that as a private thing because I don't want
people to know that I'm that sensitive. One of my favorites
is PJ Harvey. Her 2004 concerts are pretty cool.
I volunteered at the Fringe Festival last year. Took in some good
shows. I like theater. I think dance is cool but I mainly
appreciate it from a visual point of view. I am often identifying
cool compositions that would make great photographs.
I sometimes take in the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and the odd
Winnipeg Symphony performance. But I have not been very active with
these recently. I have even been an extra in Verdi's Aida put on by
Manitoba Opera. That was interesting. Lots of waiting around but I
really enjoy watching the creative process. I made a handsome
I like to get lost in a good novel. And for the last while I have
not done much of that. Reading too much other stuff that's less
fun. But also reading more "self help" type books. I need all the
help I can get. ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A sense of humor (even if it is black sometimes)
Tea, I do love coffee though but cut back due to the
My bicycle, treadmill in the winter a love hate
My tropical plants, at home and at work, they make my environment
A good book(s)
(yeah I know that is seven, I don't like rules)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Mainly whatever I am doing at the time. But when I'm doing
something that doesn't require concentration then I think of the
people in my life. Sometimes me. How I can make me better.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
OK I didn't want to admit this but I am in a sharing mood right
now. I know that this is pretty embarrassing. I hate to admit it
publicly. I'm sure most guys would not admit to this. Maybe none
here at all.
OK here it goes. I have two sewing machines. I know, I know.
A Kenmore Ultra Stitch Six and a 10 Stitch.
But sadly I have not
used them yet. They did not come with the foot pedal so I have no
speed control. I'm designing a special type but I'm not done. Just
one more project that is waiting. But I hope to get back to it
soon. I ended up picking up a foot pedal for a different model
and I made an adapter for the power cable. I now am able to use
these machines. I now have to learn how to sew.
What? You think I would say real private things here? Actually I
said a number of things already that I consider to be pretty
personal. But if you want to know more then we have to meet in
person for that.
OK, alright, I will admit to this. Taylor Swift makes me cry. (I
hear she does that to other people but not for the same reason)

While I have a set age range listed above I would consider an age
outside of that. It really would depend on the person. But if you
were a 30 year old I would be asking why ??? would you be
interested in someone so far from your own age. This is about
connections. And being of a similar age is one thing that helps in
If you only want to communicate online then please say more than
just Hi. (yes I have had that) The more you say
the more likely I would think we have something to talk about.
