Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well...I guess this is where I pimp myself (only it won't cost you
anything if we do business). I recently consulted my ego (we're
good friends) and it told me that I'm fun(ny), slightly quirky,
friendly, entelajent, open-minded, affectionate, easy-going,
patient, creative, kind, optimistic, spontaneous, SANE, empathetic,
generous, and genuine. I hope I'm right about myself. Well, those
are traits I value in others anyway. I also seem to be good at
making others feel at ease (which comes in handy in the internet
dating world). I'm a mix of pragmatic and romantic...depending on
what the situation calls for.
I still enjoy playing, and being silly/goofy (yes, I know how to
spell intelligent)...but I can just as easily be serious when
needed (i.e. meeting your parents). I don't take life too
seriously..or internet dating. I mesh well with people who are
optimistic/positive, kind, witty, introspective, and
spontaneous...and know how to live in the moment. I can easily
laugh at myself...and never feel the need to belittle others to
feed my ego.
I'm looking for fun, friendly, and casual experiences...without
expectations. But I also desire connections of
substance...regardless of it's outcome. Ultimately, I would love to
meet someone who really excites me, and develop something more
meaningful....I would just rather avoid prematurely jumping into
anything serious before we've really had time to get to know each
other. I'm far from being the jealous or possessive type...and
would far rather get to know someone for who she is than what I
want her to be. You just need to be relatively sane.
I like kids...(but I don't think I can eat a whole one). I also
like dogs and cats...they're delicious! Seriously, I do like kids
and animals. I have a 2 year old Yorkshire / Westheimer
Terrier...he's a beast....his name is Bob.
To appease your curiosity...I'm 174.45273lbs (approximately). I'm
feeling more 'average' than 'athletic' these days...I could lose
10-15 pounds. I started jogging again...that should help ;-).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Not that it defines me in any way...I work as a catering
coordinator...it pays the bills (as 'they' say). I'm educated as a
painter (artist)...which might explain why I work in the food
industry. I've become pretty proficient at procrastinating.
I enjoy tennis, hockey, skiing, snowshoeing, badminton, soccer,
jogging, swimming, and mountain biking. I've been having shoulder
and knee issues though...does that mean I'm getting old?!
I like to camp, and have pretty much everything we will
need...except a car. I use my trusty bike to get around the
city...even in the winter (yup, one of those people).
I like looking at pretty things...and not so pretty things.
Wandering through a gallery and deconstructing art is bliss to me.
Company is always nice.
Fyi...I live alone in the 'trendy' Plateau...(I have my own fridge
and everything). Well, actually...I live with my dog. He seems to
I’m really good at

others feel at ease...

a message that is essentially void of content and meaning; in a way
that mocks it's own intent, and reinforces it's insignificant

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I confess...I'm not much of a reader. I absorb information
primarily via documentaries, online articles/videos (such as TED
Talks), and educational tv programs. Most of the books, shows, and
documentaries that I absorb revolve around social behavior, the
human condition, psychology, science, and painting. Currently, some
of my favorite artists include Lucian Freud, Jenny Saville, Eric
Fischi, John Currin, Andy Goldsworthy, Chuck Close, Richard Serra,
Gerhard Richter, and Vik Muniz...but there are so many interesting
artists; it's constantly evolving.
Film makers : Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Stanley Kubrick,
Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Jean-Pierre Jeanet, Luc Besson, and
Quentin Tarantino. I really like documentaries.
Music: I like everything from electronica (mostly drum n' bass, dub
step, ambient, and breakbeats) and world music, to classical and
rock...and alternative, hip hop/rap...funk, punk...the happy
birthday song. I LOVE to shake my bum to beats (mostly to
electronica)...although, I'm not much of a dance partner when it
comes to rehearsed steps (you would probably have to lead
I'm not picky about food...and enjoy trying new dishes. I'm also
not much of a cook (sorry mom)...but I have nice kitchen supplies.
I can carve a mean fruit platter...and can make simple dishes look
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Lists of things I could never do without.
2. Money (unfortunately).
3. My sanity.
6. Humour (my sense of humour).
7. My iPhone (how embarrassing).
8. My bike.
9. My toothbrush.
10. My dog 'Bob'.
11. My ability to count.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...social behavior...and the various ways that people manage,
contrive, and perceive their relationships with others...and the
world around them. Motivated primarily by my interest in
investigating these variables creatively through painting.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you have a positive/optimistic attitude, and don't take life (or
internet dating) too seriously. Bonus points if you're FUN(ny),
witty, kind, spontaneous, intelligent (especially emotionally
intelligent), introspective, a good communicator, honest, and
genuine. Double bonus points for being creative...or at least
appreciating the arts.
You are open-minded.....respect all people, regardless of their
race, religion, sexual orientation, or social status.....and know
the difference between confidence and arrogance.
...you play tennis.....even though I'm having shoulder issues these
Don't message me if you're a social climber...or arrogant, shallow,
egocentric, judgmental, short-tempered, vain, an art-snob, gossipy,
or self centred....or adopt the word 'cool' as a way to elevate
your social status and supress/discriminate against others...or if
you're embarrassed about having a profile on a dating site.
If you subscribe to religious doctrine/propaganda then we probably
won't end up in a romantic relationship...but it doesn't mean we
can't be friends.
I know my profile is slightly 'epic'. Thanks for taking the time to
read it. You just earned a gold star.
