Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I traveled the western world a bit and lived in various places. But
I'm eager for more.
I'm a researcher/journalist and a full-time reader. Yeah. You got
it. I read.
I Just want to make that clear, in case you're interested in the
cro-magnon banana peeler types.
I'm involved in a number of projects. The latest is a PhD in
communication. So I'm busy with work, I like it that way, but I
always find the time for fun. Fun is important, when you earn
I like to visit museums and watch live theatre. Simple walks in a
park or downtown are pleasant too. I enjoy lots of things, with
friends and alone even. When I'm alone, I don't need to look at my
smartphone. And I feel bad for people who've lost the confidence to
just sit around without having to pretend they're busy. I think
it's important to state this in a self-summary.
So I'm straight as any straight guy can be, but I'm not your
sportsbar-beer-burper type. Capisc?
The most important part of this self-summary is who I'm looking
for, because we should be clear about that off the bat.
If you've managed to read thus far and get the gist of me, merci,
you're literate enough. You may proceed to the next part below.

I somewhat like Toronto's nightlife, mostly because I hang with the

Yeah. Silk's for old people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I can't list my favorite books, the list would be too long. Also,
do we really need to drop names?
Same with movies. Too many.
Music: Instrumentals, Remixes, Rock, Rap, Electronic,
Food: fruit, veggies, meats. Miss vickies salt&vinegar chips
(this is not an ad) and gummie bears. I like frozen gummie bears.
If you freeze them, they taste better and last longer. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stand-up comedy, non-fiction books, investigative reports, AS Roma,
Vodka Soda, tomatoes. Yeah, tomatoes are cool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
