My self-summary
I recently read that these are the top ten things women do not like to talk about on dates:

1. Politics
2. Other dates
3. Past relationships
4. Science fiction
5. Religion
6. Celebrities
7. Science
8. Antiques
9. Money
10. History

My comments:
#1 - This explains a lot about my dating success. Although less than I used to, who doesn't talk about our illustrious Mayor? When people in rural south Florida start using Toronto as the example for reckless crazy behaviour, you know you are in trouble.
#2 - but what if the other dates were funny? Everybody likes a good story
#4 - I'm not really a sci-fi fan myself, but I hear that nothing makes a woman melt like a few soft words of Klingon whispered in her ear.
#6 - This is a lie. I don’t know any person who doesn’t like to talk about celebrities at least a little bit. They might feel kind of bad about it, but they still talk about it. I for instance say I don’t like celebrity gossip, but even I will occasionally talk about crazy celebrity doings.
#4, 5, 6 - So my personal fascination with Scientology is probably out as an opener then?
#7 - I assume this only applies if you actually know something about science, so I will ignore this
#8 – I promise to restrain my unbridled enthusiasm for my collection of Louis XVI fish forks
#10 - Unless it's about battleships. Chicks dig battleships
What I’m doing with my life
I've got a job I enjoy, and most days I feel as though I am at least trying to help people, even if I'm not always successful.

After being an itinerant, I've settled down in Toronto and now it's home. My one major complaint is that Toronto requires some work if you want to get outdoors. I grew up in the West and so I'm used to having lots of places to go hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. It takes a bit more work to be able to do that kind of thing in TO (or outside of TO), but I love being outside when possible.

That being said, I am a city kid. I love the people, the noise, the tumult, and just the wide range of things that are only on offer in a big city.
I’m really good at
Hitting my head on things, suppressing profanity.

Attracting tourists looking for directions in at least 15 different countries - I suppose it's positive that people don't look at me and automatically clutch their wallets and purses

Exponentially increasing the volume of my voice when drinking
The first things people usually notice about me
Please see "height"

Facial expressions that reveal every thought that happens to be running through my brain.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - hard to say. I read a fair bit both non-fiction and fiction. "The Minotaur takes a cigarette break" is definitely in the top ten somewhere, as well as anything by Ryszard Kapuscinski (he was a communist-era, Polish journalist who wrote beautifully about Iran, Ethiopia, and Africa).

Love the NYT, Slate, the New Yorker, Outside, and various podcasts about the world, architecture and design.

Movies - Barcelona, Stranger than Fiction, Great Escape, Bull Durham. Good documentaries, I like hot docs.

Food - All sorts. Love to cook. My best friend says my cooking creates good "mouth drama".

Brunch - Made by me or someone else. There is something joyful about starting the day with delicious immoderation.

Music - Varied but trending recently toward alt-folky hipstery. Seabear and Of Monsters and Men (I seem to have a thing for Icelandic indie-pop these days), OK Go, Rural Alberta Advantage, Head and the Heart, Lord Huron, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Craig Cardiff (amazing live shows). Phoenix is growing on me. Fan of live music.

Have recently discovered Songza, which is pleasantly enriching my music life.
The six things I could never do without
Swimming and running around a lot
My awesome and quirky family
Extravagant and depraved amounts of cheese
Making people laugh and laughing with other people
Dinner parties – wine, food, friends, and loud talking
Books and ideas
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Clouds. Big fluffy clouds.

How to make things better, generally.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pinting and dinner, a dinner party, and sometimes just sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My omelettes are tasty (peer reviewed) and often unorthodox, but messy because I am impatient.

I just read William Shatner's autobiography and it was awesome.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–40
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You have a bit of an intellectual bent, are generally curious about the world, and you can talk about what you find interesting. Doesn't have to be inflation or monetary policy, but it has to be something - art, international issues, brit pop, how people think, documentaries, hot air balloon technology - something.

I have a bit of a lefty job, and so a certain degree of lefty-ness is important to me.

Have the capacity for silliness and inappropriate humour.

You like going out and trying new things, but are also able to just hang out.
