Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Below you will learn about me through the eyes of a woman who has
been my best friends for over 20 years. Enjoy the read. :-) By the
way.......I am most attracted to introverts so if you call yourself
a reader, a thinker, a bit of a geek or a nerd then you're probably
a good fit with me.......especially if you enjoy the outdoors.
Here's what Tracy has to say about me:
"I have a substantial list of great things about my friend, Kyle,
but first I'm going to tell you a story. One that sums up his
generous soul, sense of adventure, and unwavering spirit : Several
years ago I asked him if he knew anyone who would be willing to
drive from Winnipeg to Vancouver to deliver a trailer and boat to
my sister, who was in the process of moving. Without hesitation, he
volunteered for the job, rounded up 3 of his man-friends to help,
packed his ski wear and started driving. After plowing through a
blizzard, surviving a detour into the ditch and arriving in
Vancouver with a smile on his face, he and his friends spent the
next couple of days skiing at Whistler. The story doesn't end
there. Because I haven't even come close to describing what really
makes my friend so special. The following week I tried several
times to call Kyle to find out about his trip but I only got his
voicemail. I started to worry because in our entire friendship he
had never NOT called me back within a day or two. Finally, he
called - from Vancouver General Hospital where he'd been for 5 days
after a terrible ski accident. When I arrived at the hospital and
almost didn't recognize him with his broken.....um....face, he
beamed at me and said "I'm glad I spent $30 on the helmet!" Not a
word of regret, blame, self-pity, anger, or fear. Words of
gratitude. That, in a nutshell, is Kyle. His body required some
healing but his spirit remained 100% intact.
Kyle is an extrovert, he loves to have fun, will seize any
opportunity for adventure, and believes in the law of attraction.
He LOVES his kids and actually proves it by providing them with an
enviable balance of stability, security, and fun. I love to think
about the amazing memories he has helped create for his children
from the simple traditions to the vacations of a lifetime. He is a
romantic and goes above and beyond to make the everyday, special. I
am grateful to be counted among Kyle's long list of devoted
Let me finish by assuring you that Kyle is not perfect (although I
can't think of any examples at the moment). Regardless, I can
guarantee you will have a great time getting to know him."
If you are still reading, I will add that I'm am not looking for
hook ups. Adding sex too soon in a relationship just seems to take
away from getting to know each other so please don't have
expectations of having sex for at least 3 months. Not that I have
anything against people who want that, I'm just looking for
Thanks for reading, I'll add a couple of my favorite quotes just

worth watching" (my brother Trevor)
"The true test of a person's character is how they treat someone
who can do nothing for them" (unknown)

people around you to get what they want" (Zig Ziggler)

heading out to my parent's farm or a friend's cottage. Other times
I'm curling up on the couch with a good book or a movie.
I've also been known to go motorcycling or snowmobiling, boating or
camping depending on the weather or taking off on a weekend road
trip....especially if I have someone to go with.
