My self-summary
- I spend most of my spare time roaming the streets on my bike (it's fun, and it's the best way to learn your city, trust me, you never know what you'll find out there). If you have a bike, great! If not, you can ride on my handlebars!
- Fair warning: I am a bit of a politics junkie.
- I love wine. Lots of wine. My strategy with wine is this: I basically figure how much wine I would need to drink in order to be considered to have "a problem," and then I back it off just a little bit.
- I love to read (it goes perfectly with drinking wine)
- I love animals (hunters need not message me)
- I worked as a bartender for a long time
- I have a Masters degree in Political Science from the UofT.
- I love cottaging. I go as often as I can. I was fortunate to spend the entire month of September at the family cottage last year. It was stellar!
- I'm very open-minded. I rarely judge anyone's lifestyle choices. In fact, I'm just open – to most things.
- I wear ties. Often.
- My many sojourns on my bike have made me pretty adroit at finding new/cool bars and restos around town
- I have a passion for great conversation. If you have something interesting to say, I'm ready to listen (and critique).
- I don't much like hyper-sensitive people who are easily "offended." Please be able to take a joke and have a sense of humour.
- I love smart, interesting women. Intelligence is a huge turn on for me.
- I seem to lack a "jealousy" gene. I don't know quite how it came to be that I was born without one, but nevertheless, if you somehow get turned on by super needy/clingy guys who hang all over you, and police your every move, you probably won't be interested in dating me. Similarly, nor do I like dating people who tend to be hyper-jealous. Take what I say at face-value, and I'll do likewise.
- I'm learning photography (so far, I can turn my camera "on", and then use the "auto" setting)
What I’m doing with my life
I work in commercial real estate.

(For the sake of my personal interest, I still work on my academic stuff in my spare time. I research online social movements, computer hackers, and the politicization of anonymity – I'm trying my best to get my thoughts and ideas out in print (with some success!))
I’m really good at
I can flick a pen 360 degrees around my thumb (surely you've seen a former classmate or co-worker do this before, no?). I only mention it because it took me forever to learn in grade 8 science class. Seriously, if you knew how long it took me to master it, you'd know the kind of commitment I'm capable of ;)

I quit smoking several years ago, but before I did, I could blow the best smoke rings you've ever seen. No joke, people would comment on them all the time, and even ask me to teach them. Unfortunately, it was unteachable, it was just a weird inborn talent I had. If you get me really drunk I may just show you :)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why OKCupid insists on phrasing so many of their matching questions by asking "Would you consider?" Such as "Would you consider sleeping with someone on the first date?" or "Would you consider having an open relationship?" It's a weird way to phrase the question because, by definition, in order to give your answer (i.e. as to whether you'd sleep with someone on the first date, or have an open relationship), you'd have to consider it. Hence, the answer would always be "Yes," as in, "Yes I would consider it, but subsequent to considering it, I would or wouldn't do it." You see? Thus, to some extent, the very phrasing of the question makes it tautological. OKCupid should just ask "Would you sleep with someone on the first date?" or "Would you have an open relationship?" etc.

Moreover, OKCupid frequently phrases their matching questions by asking "whether or not," such as "Regardless of whether or not you smoke marijuana, would you support legalizing it?" In reality, however, using "whether or not" is redundant, because "whether," used on its own, implies alternate possibilities. Hence, OKCupid should simply use "whether," as in, "Regardless of whether you smoke marijuana, would you support legalizing it?" See what I mean?

I guess what I'm saying by all of this, is that I spend a lot of time on this site wondering why OKCupid doesn't do a better job of phrasing their questions properly?
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking wine...and other things
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My apartment is infested with Koala Bears (it's the cutest infestation ever!)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–40
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You have your own life, but, at the same time, you'd like to meet someone for a drink and see where it goes – that's essentially where I'm at. I'm looking for something casual that could lead to something more committed and long-term. That doesn't mean I'm not serious, it just means I don't take commitment lightly.

Please don't message me if all you are interested in is casual sex (I don't actually mean this, but all the girls get to say it, so I kind of wanted to know what it was like to be able to say it too).

Don't message me if all you want to do is learn how to blow super-amazing smoke rings, like I said, it's an inborn talent and I gave it up a long time ago. I wish I could teach everyone, really I do (I'd make a fortune), but it's just not possible, sorry.

P.S. If I don't respond to your message, it's only because I don't think we'd be a good match. But thanks anyway, and good luck on OKCupid!
