Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Why hello there! Welcome to my profile, make yourself at
I'm a 25-year-old grad student at UofT. I'm from Quebec (and have
the accent that comes with it). I love cultures, arts, science,
history, all things nerdy. I'm a passionate person, quite fearless
though not careless. I'm a geek, I love video and board games,
books, computers. I'm a pretty friendly introvert.
A sincere heart, an active mind, a healthy body, and a warm
personality is all I really seek in a man - qualities which I think
I also have.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm binded to Toronto for the next 4ish years. I just finished the
first year of a PhD in Comparative Literature. It's quite a scary
yet amazing feeling to finally have somewhere I can settle down, a
place I can call home. I've been quite nomadic for the last few
years, and I think I'm at a stage in my life where I'm finally
comfortable with stability (which doesn't mean I don't seek new
adventures!). I work hard. But the loneliness that comes with work
only enhances my desire to meet people and build something
meaningful with them, whether it's a romantic relationship or
friendship, or something in-between.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adapting. Learning. Listening. Appreciating. Loving. Cuddling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Rather than listing books most people haven't heard of and come off
as pretentious, I'd rather just say I love reading all kinds of
stuff, fiction and non-fiction. Soft spot for poetry.
As for movies, I'm quite open-minded. I'm a sucker for horror
movies, but only when someone is there to watch them with me. I
love the X-Men and dream of being one.
I don't really watch TV, not because I'm a snob/hipster, but just
because I can't seem to want to spend energy and get sucked into a
series and watch it for hours and hours. I do enjoy watching TV
with people, but that's mostly for the connection and shared
experience rather than the actual plotline of the show.
As for music, I tend to prefer pop and rock. A few favorites
include Natasha Bedingfield, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alanis
Morissette, Björk, Evanescence, Queen, Dido, Green Day.
And I just love food of any kind and any origin. I can't handle
spice too well, but other than that, anything goes :P. I can't cook
to save my life, but I love eating and trying new things.
As well, I love video games, from Civilization to Smash Bros,
League of Legends to indie games. Love anything multiplayer. Proud
Nintendo fanboy. :p Also, many board games and social games.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computer - need it for work, for games, and to keep in touch with
family and friends.
Coffee - sweet nectar of life.
Glasses - I'm blind.
Backpack - I always carry stuff around. I'd be lost without
Alarm clock - I'm quite a night owl, and without an alarm clock,
I'd never wake up in time for anything.
TTC pass - not that I'm a fan of public transit in Toronto (I have
my fair share of complaints, like most Torontonians), but I always
get around with public transit no matter where in the world I am.
Four simple reasons: 1) I don't drive; 2) It saves money; 3) It
saves the environment; and 4) No need to worry when I have a drink
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics. Travelling plans. Dreams. Career. Human rights. People,
their motivations, their behavior, their personality. My friends,
and the various people I've met in my life who have left traces.
Feelings. Ideas. Time past and to come.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably just home, maybe with a glass of wine or beer, playing
games, working on some project, or chatting with friends. Possibly
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I play Pokemon and other games that a fully grown man should
probably be embarrassed to play.
