Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm often mistaken for WIll Smith. I forgive you in advance.
Ask me a question I've never been asked before.
When I was in grade three I jumped on two ketchup packets in the
schoolyard. They, unsurprisingly (in retrospect), burst all over my
shoes. I was afraid my parents would see the mess so I hid my shoes
Every so often I experience what I call mental euphorgasms. It
tends to happen when that which I'm taking in is so vast and
awesome (before the word 'awesome' became everyone's descriptor for
virtually everything good), like, for example, sitting on my
surfboard beyond the break, watching the sun set (I should mention
that I'm a terrible surfer), or staring at a clear starlit sky
while attempting to comprehend the vastness of the universe, or
watching an incredibly talented person performing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lip syncing like a boss.
I just returned from spending the entire winter in Costa Rica /
Nicaragua where I was working remotely for a Toronto-based company
(the work and the locations were entirely unrelated). It was a
fantastic experience and opened my eyes/mind to some wonderful new
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Smiling at strangers.
Helping people work through their problems.
Putting the toilet seat back down (including the lid).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is my jam right now:
TV: The Walking Dead, Homeland, Mad Men, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, How I
Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, The Real World
Challenges, Game Of Thrones and a few more I'm not yet willing to
admit in such a public forum.
Movies: Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade (and also Raiders of
the Lost Ark), Kingdom of Heaven, Memento, Being John Malkovitch,
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, The Secret Life of Walter
Mitty, and probably a bunch more I can't think of at the
My most recent reads were: And The Mountains Echoed (Khaled
Hosseini), The Dinner (Herman Koch), The Sisters Brothers (Patrick
deWitt), and People Of The Book (Geraldine Brooks). I'm currently
reading Sweetness and Power - The Place of Sugar in Modern History
(Sidney W. Mintz) (*update - this book is terrible haha. On the
hunt for a new book to read)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to go next, but I'd like to stop thinking about this and
begin thinking about the person who's going to keep me in one
place, or accompany me to new places.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have some very strong rationale as to why I, initially, liked the
HIMYM finale, and then why I, subsequently, changed my mind and
decided I didn't like it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Some combination of the following...
-You're healthy; relatively.
-You're smart and aware but not judgey.
-You'd consider a one week long first date in Croatia, or something
similarly insane (except you won't call it insane - you'll call it
your next adventure).
-We'd make a wicked survival team in a zombie-apocalypse (I'd be
your Jesse Eisenberg and you'd be my Emma Stone).
-Your profile doesn't sound like a business pitch.
-Not all your pictures (on here and Fb/Instagram etc) are selfies.
