Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is easily the hardest section to fill out.
I've been in Montreal for about 15 years and became a citizen of
Canada at the beginning of 2012! Before that, I lived all over:
South Africa, Belgium, USA and England. I really love to travel,
but I don't get nearly enough opportunities to do it. That's
something I'd like to change.
I take my long term goals extremely seriously. Outside of work, I'm
looking for someone equally motivated to succeed, and with the same
desire to experience the fun things in life. (read: adventuring,
bungee jumping? spontaneous trips to interesting places, etc)
I love to learn new things! I'm lucky enough to have a job that
encourages me to learn new skills almost every day, but even if
that wasn't the case I think I would still find myself watching odd
youtube videos about space. It's good to know how the world
Right now I'm more of an indoor person than outdoors, but I enjoy
snowboarding in the winter and swimming and cycling in the summer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been working at an awesome technology startup for about 5
years. I really enjoy my work and it normally keeps me quite busy,
but I want to try new things.
I just moved downtown from the West Island and I *love* it.
Definitely a change for the better.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at reading people. I always know when someone is
having a hard time or when they're upset. I enjoy noticing things
like this, and having the chance to cheer someone up feels
Otherwise, I am a really solid software developer and systems
administrator. I'm self-taught and have managed to build a career
by Googling stuff :) I really enjoy what I do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a lot of different kinds of food, but I'm quite a picky
eater. Music-wise, I like a lot of electronic music, but I have a
wide taste that includes Rock, Punk, Classical, even Metal
sometimes. I can get into almost any movie as long as it keeps me
entertained. I'm not someone who criticizes movies for "having no
plot" or for "being too ambitious". If I was entertained, I'm
I love a good action movie, but I'm also partial to crime solving
movies and TV shows, or ones like Oceans 11 where you follow the
criminals as they plan an impressive heist.
I don't know many actors' names, or the names of the musicians in
the bands I like. Some people find that weird, but I just like
their movies/shows/music, I don't feel the need to know anything
more than that!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Phone - Like a lot of people these days, my phone is almost part of
me. Sometimes it spends the night under my pillow...
Music - When I'm working or travelling, music is one of the few
absolute requirements for productivity or avoiding insanity.
Shower, Hair Gel, Toothbrush - I group these together because until
I've showered, brushed my teeth and tamed my hair, I don't feel
human in the morning.
Car - I love my car and I really enjoy driving. Sometimes I like to
just go for a random drive to nowhere in particular... ah, that
might be weird.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where my life is headed. I'm not sure what I'll be doing in 5
years, but I know it's going to be awesome!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I mentioned that I have a wide range of musical tastes... and they
sometimes include really terrible pop music hits :(
