Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(Relatively) recent import to St Catharines (via Windsor) from the
UK... mates & dates required!
Finished my PhD, hence the big move... Also, the big need for some
gym-time - "Average" is NOT the Body Type I want to be displaying
The last few months of a PhD are a right sod, I don't mind
Am considered good fun by most of the people who know me, and have
quite a variable sense of humour (or should that be humor over
here?) - often sarcastic, occasionally obscure, sometimes flippant.
Like to talk - not in the sense of hearing my own voice, but in
terms of discourse; as happy to speak as to listen - about a whole
range of subjects. I have my hobby-horses, but then who
An old personality test (thespark.com!) said:
You are an EXPERIMENTER (DIAT). Although you're slightly shy (admit
it), you love control. When a problem comes your way, you stomp on
it swiftly and decisively. You are bothered easily by failure in
others and failure in yourself. You don't like people that you
don't think are intelligent. Rather than arguing with them,
however, you would just as soon ignore them altogether.
In relationships, you have a strong heart. And because you're
introverted, people take you as someone they can trust. But the
fact is that in addition to solving problems, you like to create
You're a good person at heart, but then again, who isn't?
.... I'm not saying how accurate that is.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just started post-doctoral research at the University of Windsor.
Am an organic chemist by trade, but do all sorts.... Climbing the
academic ladder, one rusty step at a time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Chemistry (I hope)
2. Being a good friend. I'd like to think that I'm the kind of
friend who can be there when I am needed, and not just when I am
needed to drink vodka
3. World Domination
4. Other stuff
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The english accent? That I don't appear shy, despite claiming to be
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Bookwise, am a complete fantasy nerd - I rather enjoy the escapism.
Robert Jordan would be my favourite author - Wheel of Time ftw.
Also, Terry Pratchett rocks my world. Though the last one was a bit
Movies? Much the same. Wolverine sucked, but the Marvel films
generally make me happy. Ditto with the escapism.
Music - pretty broad tastes, though I do like my thumpa thumpa. I
will admit that on occasion I do have the musical tastes of a 12
year old girl... but that only comes out when drunk.
Foodwise... Curry or Chinese is best! Thai is also pretty
gorgeous... need to try more far-eastern cuisine. Generally not a
fan of seafood.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The internet
2. Something to blow up
...more to follow
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All sorts - but I will confess, chemistry has a significant place!
Latest books I've read (or want to read), what to eat today, what
to do tomorrow, how I am going to take over the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Haven't had enough fridays over here yet to know what a "typical"
one would be :)
Back in the UK would usually go out with friends... or have an
early night and prepare for a big one on saturday :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, according to an ex's best friend, the ex was known to
describe me as "shag of the century". And yes, I am somewhat smug
about that... in a modest-ish way.

Message me if you're going to challenge me... I will expect you to
be pretty damn special, and you should expect the same.
