This sounds kind of odd, but if you're a dork (Lost, Transformers,
Battlestar Galactica, sci-fi, general dorky things), then let's
talk. An encyclopediac knowledge of Seinfeld is an enormous plus
(actually, it's more of a necessity); given yourself another 5 or
so if you're into The Office or Arrested Development. People with
interests out of the norm are definitely of interest. It's pretty
unlikely that you're going to be able to come up with something
obscure enough for me not to have some kind of knowledge of it.
Esotericism is a definite plus.
It's unlikely that I'll be all that interested if you're a "young
professional" (what asshole invented this term?) with a great body,
but you can't hold a conversation beyond the weather, your
"portfolio" and the general condition of the sidewalk. Now I have
to back up for a second since I guess I *AM* a "young
professional", but it just irks me when I see 23 year-olds making
photocopies describing themselves as such. People wear it like some
sort of badge of honour. Why?
Also, if you're foreign of just about any nationality (that
includes you Americans!) then that's a definite point of attraction
for me. If an accent is added into the equation, then I'm
My interest in you is probably pretty independent of your age, with
the caveat that I'm typically interested in guys who are older than
me (you don't have to remember "the tall ships", I just have a hard
time relating to most guys who are my age). If I was forced to put
a range on it, it would probably be somewhere around 24 - mid 30s
(though this is a guideline, not a rulebook).
I'm an unpretentious person (well, mostly) who likes to read, watch
great movies and TV (TV gets a bad rap these days, there's lots of
great stuff to watch), and cook. Cook a whole lot.
I am savvy, sophisticated, and some other S word
What I’m doing with my life
Working, learning, eating, sleeping, breathing, and just trying to
think more than I stare. To be more descriptive, I work in
"finance" and I have a good career. I know that's vague, but who
wants to go into specifics around careers when it's that boring?
I'm not a character from Wall Street obsessed with the destruction
of ma and pa shops if that's what that description sounds like.
Feel free to ask.
I’m really good at
Cooking, debiting, crediting, baking, frying, insulting, speaking
The first things people usually notice about me
Red hair. It's obvious, but true.

On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering what I should be doing on a Friday aside from thinking
about what I should be doing on a Friday.

Your Saturdays include dim sum and the St. Lawrence Market. On more
specific notes, I'm generally attracted to most races of guys,
though I have to be honest and say I don't find myself physically
attracted to Asian guys (just a preference, sorry guys). I usually
go for mature, older guys who are more on the masculine side, and
errr on the side of top. Again, just saying this as a preference to
save all of our valuable time - we can save our e-mailing for more
relevant discussion than those kinds of questions if you made it
all the way through to the bottom of this profile.
