Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a forty-something professional, financially and emotionally
secure, physically fit, politically and socially liberal, forever
young at heart, and completely at ease with people -- even if I've
just met them by chance. I seem to have a talent for making others
feel at ease around me.
Let's be honest.... People always have grand notions about the
kinds of individuals they're seeking, and the kinds of
relationships they hope to settle into in the long term. But life
is complex, and sometimes the path toward long-term goals is
interrupted by short-term diversions. We're only flesh and blood,
after all, and it's hard to resist the intense heat of instant
attraction. Sometimes our diversions leave us merely sated. But
once in a very great while, they lead us to find something that we
never realized we were missing.
I am honest, comfortable, and expectation-defying
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking advantage of every opportunity to learn something new.
Making a point to smile at strangers, just because the world would
be a better place if we did that more often.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
All sorts of things, really. ;) Honestly, making others smile is
one of my talents, and I don't necessarily mean that in a sexual

That I'm not at all what they expected. And they always mean that
in a nice way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Again, let's be honest.... You're probably not reading this because
you're interested in what books or movies or music I'm into. I do
love spicy cuisine, however. Consuming it, and preparing it. I'm
actually pretty good at the "preparing it" part.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time to mix things up a bit with a new List of Six. ;) Not that
life would be impossible without any of these, but it would
certainly be a lot less enjoyable without...
1) warm breezes on long lazy summer afternoons
2) starry skies on cool autumn evenings
3) mountains of freshly fallen powder on brisk cloudless winter
4) spring thaws, which always seem to come too early in the
And of course...
5) hot coffee
6) pleasant and meandering conversations, punctuated with laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...the state of the world, and what I can do in my small way to
make it a better place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...decompressing from a busy week at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Hmmmm, here's a thought.... ;) I go snowboarding by myself, so when
I board a chairlift for a ride to the top of the trail, I usually
get to share the ride with one or two or three strangers. I've had
some interesting chats with some of them. Lately, I've had this
silly passing thought about how cool it might be to end up sharing
a chair -- a single ride, four across -- with Rick Mercer, George
Stroumboulopoulos, and Peter Mansbridge. Ha!! Or perhaps Wendy
Mesley, Claire Martin, and, uhhhhm... Cassie Campbell? ;)
Obviously, I'm spending too much time watching the local CBC

...you'd like to! :) Or, if you have a particular thought to share
about something I've written here. Or, if you just feel the urge to
strike up a pleasant conversation with a stranger.
