Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a young professional who likes to keep busy. I'm originally
from Kingston and I like to visit there often. I recently moved to
Ottawa and I'll be starting grad school at Carleton in
I enjoy a lot of different activities but in particular I enjoy:
hanging out with friends, going on walks, shopping (with whoever
I've tricked into going with me), reading, watching movies,
cooking/drinks with friends, camping in the summer time, travelling
both short and long distance and on occasion I enjoy packing up my
car and just seeing where I end up. In short, I get bored easily
when I'm home alone, so I need to keep busy.
I'm generally pretty up-front about my feelings and opinions. I'm a
very kind and caring person but admittedly I have moments where I
lack sensitivity. In terms of dating, I'm hoping to meet a guy whom
I click with. I think that this is the hardest thing to find in
this online dating world, so I will try to describe myself to the
best of my ability. I have only been dating for the past two years,
I have learned a lot in that time but it has aided me in my own
personal development and realization as to who I am and what I'm
looking for in a partner.
I love to laugh, make others laugh and overall be a bit ridiculous
(when appropriate). I have worked at a very serious job for the
past three years but I think I have gotten out of it with my humour
and sanity (questionable) largely intact. I have a bit of a dark
sense of humour coupled with a love of the strange and occasionally
vulgar. I also love a good debate, especially over wine. ;)
I love my friends. They mean the world to me. I am a very loyal
person, who will bend over backwards to help someone. I try to be
as forgiving as possible in my life and to treat others how I would
wish to be treated myself. This is extremely challenging at times
but I think I mostly have it down.
I am only 'nerdy' in a more artsy, 'I appreciate vintage furniture
and cats' sort of way. I don't really play video games (I will play
easy ones with you) or spend hours on the internet/watching
television. I enjoy these things once in awhile, but I'd rather do
art, have a conversation or go for a walk.
I wouldn't describe myself as overly masculine or overly feminine,
I am somewhere in the middle. I don't really really have any
hang-ups with this, nor is it very important to me when trying to
find a partner. I really just want to find someone who is
themselves and whom I enjoy spending time with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have previously worked for social services in the Federal
government for the past three years. I have decided to take a leave
of absence from my job in order to move to Ottawa and continue my
education. I'm planning to attend Carleton University in the fall
to complete a Master's in Social Work program.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at listening to people..and I would like to say I'm
good at giving advice. ;)
I think I'm also pretty good at art, music, making people laugh
through my somewhat dry/dark sense of humour, shopping, and
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of humour, ability to talk freely, and my hair (I don't
really understand why).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love somewhat formulaic crime novels, like Kathy Reichs
and Patricia Cornwell. I also enjoy fantasy, historical fiction,
classics and some speculative fiction. Saying this, I seem to only
be reading in spurts. I don't think I've recovered fully from my
Movies: Trying to think of non-embarrassing favourite movies is
kind of difficult. Feel free to ask. ;)
Shows: I'm not really that into TV, but I do enjoy True Blood. I
can appreciate certain semi-geeky shows, but I don't follow
Music: I love singers/groups like Amy Winehouse, Adele, Aretha
Franklin, Pink, Macklemore and Florence + the Machine. However, I
listen to pretty much anything.
Food: I love anything spicy and different! I'm also mildly addicted
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iPhone (I have become addicted).
Dreams, goals and ambitions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about my life and its direction. I
also self-analyze a lot, and look for ways to improve myself and
how I handle situations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to make plans to do something with a friend. I'm not a
homebody, I get bored easily and like to be social.
..or I'm working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I secretly think I'm hilarious. I love making others laugh.
I have probably read and re-read the Harry Potter series too many
times to count.
Also, despite that I know it doesn't always mean better quality,
I'm a bit of a brand whore.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if anything in my profile intrigues you or if
you can relate to any of it. I'm also always looking to make new
friends, and find new things to do. :)
...also, I'm kind of shy on here and rarely message people first.
