I've been in Edmonton just over a year now and pine for the mountains but am growing used to their absence - I just have to get back to them for my fix every so often. Also, my down jacket has acquired a whole new significance in my life!
I'm looking for someone who is curious, intrigued by many things and who enjoys debating ideas. Someone active but not going to be depressed because a chocolate mousse happens to trip us up. Having cats or dogs is a bonus - I live in a pet-free zone and miss them.
BTW - I'm not "420 friendly" - I've worked with too many people badly affected by drugs to have any tolerance for them in a partner. If that offends you, my apologies but I'm not budging on it.
Beyond that? I'm a reader and am a bit of a news junky although I prefer web news sites to TV. Also, if you're up for some skiing (downhill or XC), let's talk. For the rest, let's meet and explore things together. Generally, I'm allergic to the idea of a shopping list - I think it misses something essential in what makes people fascinating to each other. At the end of the day, I want us to look at each other and have our eyes glint with mirth and warmth...
I'm not interested in lengthy email exchanges. Even with the best will in the world on both sides, I think they tend to be misleading.
If I'm not for you, good luck in your search!
