Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a quiet but playful and affectionate woman who speaks what is
in her heart and thrives on laughter and a positive outlook on
life. I'm looking for a deep connection and great chemistry.
Hopefully that's not too much to ask. I have a wonderful daughter
who is my top priority and she is with me half the time. I am very
happy with my life and I hope you are too. I think the best
relationships happen when two awesome people find each other in
friendship, they just seem to naturally "click" and a deeper
connection develops from there. Basically, I'm using this site as a
way to meet new people and see where things go.
I can be shy at first when meeting somebody new but I do warm up
quickly, especially when the other person has an easygoing energy.
While I'm shy, I'm also very upfront and honest about everything. I
value my friendships and love spending time with my friends. I'd
love to spend time with a special someone too.
I wouldn't say I'm "athletic" but I enjoy hiking, jogging, long
walks and yoga. In the winter, I enjoy cross-country skiing. In the
warmer months, I love being outside and especially love going to
festivals, outdoor concerts and farmers' markets.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a young daughter who is my top priority in life. I have a
job that challenges me and I love where I work. I try to live in
the moment and in a mindful manner.
I am very involved in the arts and culture community both at work
and outside of work. I am a member of an arts organization trying
to get young people engaged in the arts and I recently stepped back
into the theatre scene after about 15 years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking - I love cooking, I love eating and really enjoy healthy
eating and exploring new cultures through their food.
Writing - I love writing, it is part of my job and I find that I
can be more expressive through my writing.
Laughing - I have a great sense of humour and love it all - Nerdy
puns? Awesome! Outrageous, goofy, ridiculous humour? Great! Witty,
dark and sarcastic? Yes please! I'm also great at laughing at
Listening and empathy - I recently read a quote "The biggest
communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen
to reply." I like to think that I listen to people - usually close
friends and family - to understand them and their perspective.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People notice my smile and my eyes. They also note that I'm a happy
person and laugh a lot.
People do also notice that I'm shy though, but once I've warmed up
to a person, I can relax a bit more and open up. I appreciate
spending time with someone that is relaxed, playful and outgoing -
it helps me be the same. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love all music and especially enjoy live music. It's on all the
time - at work, in the car and at home while I'm puttering around
the house. I like to torture my daughter by belting out tunes while
I'm driving or cooking in the kitchen.
Some of my favourite bands are Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Florence
and the Machine, Alabama Shakes and The Black Keys. Right now, I'm
listening to a lot of: CBC Radio 2, Decemberists, The Arkells, The
Strumbellas, Hozier, You and Me (Pink and Dallas Green), Hayden's
new album Hey Love, London Grammar (check out their version of
Wicked Game) and Beyonce (yes, it's true).
My taste in music is pretty diverse (indie, hip-hop, alternative,
soul, etc.) as long as it has a great beat or great lyrics. I think
one of my favourite things to do is share new music and learn about
new music from someone. Music is such a personal and subjective
thing that I think sharing your musical tastes with someone is like
letting them sneak a peek into a little corner of your heart.
I really enjoy tv shows like Louie, Curb Your Enthusiasm, House of
Cards, The Mindy Project and The Good Wife. Sometimes I enjoy
watching a tv series marathon style although I haven't done that
since House of Cards.
For movies, I really enjoy offbeat and dark comedies but also like
dramas and thrillers. My all-time favourite movie is Good Will
Hunting. I love movies from Woody Allen, Wes Anderson and the Coen
My list of favourite foods could go on forever but I love Thai,
Indian, Greek, Mediterranean, seafood and spice!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming things like a roof over my head, water, air, etc. don't
need to be mentioned:
1. My daughter
6. Emotional and physical intimacy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
food...what's for dinner?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually spending time with family and friends, often at home after
a busy work week.

you are a genuine, honest guy with a great sense of humour. I like
to spend time with down to earth people who can be playful but can
also relax and have a meaningful conversation. Most importantly,
you should be happy with your life, you should know yourself and
what you are looking for in a relationship.
