I am a 51 year old fit, fun, youthful and reliable, single Dad. I
am with my son week on, week off. I am looking to build a solid,
committed, happy relationship with a kindred spirit, someone to
share all the joys and pleasures of life with and to learn and grow
together on the path of healthy intimacy.
I am not a stand-up comedian ( only in my dreams) , but I've got a
healthy sense of humour. If I can't make you laugh, it won't work.
And in many ways I think that depends less on me being the funny
man and more on you being the kind of person who likes to laugh and
laughs easily, a quality in a person I find very attractive.
I've got my insecurities, but I like who I am and am fairly
confident and willing to take risks in life and expose myself to
new situations and experiences that nudge me from my comfort zone.
I approach life as an adventure, aware of the gift of each day and
trying to make sure I don't take anything or anyone near and dear
to me, for granted.
I am a little bit domestic and enjoy cooking. I live with my son in
a sweet ground-level suite in Fernwood in a housing co-op. I play
ice hockey in a rec leaugue and play very poorly and love it,
nonetheless, for the fitness, the speed, excitement and comraderie
and don't give a rat's posterior whether we win or lose, an
indication that I don't take myself or life too seriously.
I am generally considered a fun-loving guy, younger in personality
and appearance than in chronological age. I like to be active and
engaged with life. Do no drugs, drink only very occasionally.
I have a spiritual and artistic side as well and dabble in making
music, writing, visual arts, in meditation/ yoga, community
development, environmental education and I am an organizer and
decent public speaker. I like to bring adults and kids together to
play sports. I am passionately in love with nature and like getting
into the wild and will always support any campaign to stop
destructive industrial projects and believe strongly in building a
green economy that allows people to have good jobs while preserving
the living planet, our one and only home.
What I’m doing with my life
Running my own small landscaping company, making my best effort at
consciously and lovingly raising a twelve year old boy,
paying attention to what is going on in the world, enjoying the
good things of life: good food, hiking, paddling, camping, playing
music, writing and looking for somebody special to share my life
I’m really good at
Remembering the latin nomenclature for plants, appreciating the
awesome beauty of nature,singing everywhere I go, making fun of
myself, philosophizing and finding meaning in life, judging
character, being grateful for all I've got, being a friend, being a
loving Dad, my trade, playing, writing, making things grow, public
speaking, endlessly reinventing new recipes I can't remember next
time which is why I'm endlessly re-inventing new ones, staying calm
amidst the chaos, clearly communicating boundaries, taking it
lightly, challenging unjust authority, making people laugh,
straight-talking, being in my body.
The first things people usually notice about me
My gumboots, my prolific nose, my voice, my enthusiasm and passion
for life, that I seem younger than my age, I'm always on the go,
dirt on my knees, uproarious laugh, a leader.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Dreams and desires, my son, my work, food, the planet,
relationships, a world where we are well.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home with my son, sharing a meal, lighting candles, eating
traditional Jewish foods, playing a game, practising gratitude,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My 12 year old beats me at chess on a regular basis.

with love and passion.
