Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to live by the maxim that "A pleasure shared is a pleasure
doubled, while a trouble shared is a trouble halved". I feel
complete as an individual, and I'm rarely lonely, but there is a
big wide world out there and I'd much rather explore it with a
soul-mate, than as a a solo.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Gainfully employed, I down-sized from a home in the West Hills to
an apartment in NW. After 30 years of home ownership, I am reveling
in the carefree life of a renter. I can close the door and hop a
plane to Europe without a second thought. Paying rent is a bummer,
and being able to hear neighbours is an adjustment, but I love the
absence of yard work and home maintenance. It gives me so much more
time for yoga, bike riding and hiking.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
avoiding answering questions like this. I strive to be good at
everything I do, be it work, play or living well.

The bad news, I'm a vegetarian. Since childhood, no meat or fish,
everything else, well I'm on a seafood diet. If I see food, I will
eat it. But Vegomatic doesn't mean narrow-minded. I have no axe to

out and I 'm completely comfortable around and amongst
The good news, I have catholic tastes when it comes to books,
movies and the Arts. I love the Symphony and Duff's Garage, The
book of Mormon (broadway show not religion!) and Lincoln. Foreign
movies have thrown up way more treasures than tin cans.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Red Wine or brewpub beer, good conversation, eye contact that
lingers a tad too long, a warm fire, a good book and thee. Oh, and
Irish music. That's seven, but who's counting?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
English soccer, the girls of my youth, the one who got away.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dancing or listening to live music (or both!). Dance is the
cornerstone of my life, I love waltz, tango (Argentine), zydeco and
swing. Duff's Garage, Secret Society, La Vie de Boheme and Kell's
are amongst my favourite locations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm somewhat abashed to be contemplating online dating. I much
