My self-summary
I feel that we are the sum of the people we interact with the most. Most of my friends are highly intelligent and active.

What I'm looking for:
I looking for someone who is a friend first. It's important to base your relationships around respect. In general I seek authenticity and try my best to live authentically. I want to spend my spare time with someone who inspires me.

The banal:
~ I'm eating more veggies and less grains. (I prepare my own food as much as possible)
~ I like to look for dress shirts in thrift shops.
~ I focus on maintaining energy levels and sleep

I'm not at all interested in starting a series of disjointed relationships so from the outset, I'd like to meet someone I would admire. I do read profiles to assess where someone's values lie.
"“Love means that you accept a person with all its failures, stupidities, ugly points… And nonetheless the other person is absolute for you, everything that makes life worth living, but… you see perfection in imperfection itself, and that’s how we should learn to love the world.” Zizek
What I’m doing with my life
It really depends, this winter I've been interested in mid-east politics and its interplay with western media and how that shapes popular opinion.
Staying current with things that I value while looking for new avenues for growth.
This summer I've taken to mountain biking in a serious way. (Disclaimer; I'm pretty much invest all of my time into my interest and then find pockets of free time.) .
I’m really good at
Recognizing I'm really good at something not many people care about. (It's grounding) I've tried my hands at other things with varying success but cycling takes up the lion share of my attention. (A 300 km weekend of riding would not be abnormal) .
The first things people usually notice about me
It's pretty mixed bag and sometimes contradictory. My cycling friends say I have massive arms and legs. Body building types would say I'm tiny. (My legs are 22-23 inches while my waist is just under 29 in the summer.(People gawk at my legsI (It's awkward for me to be honest.)) People I deal with in a professional capacity remark that I'm always upbeat and positive.
I appear 10 years younger.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read mostly non-fiction but have a soft spot for Camus, Sartre. Zizek. I'm pretty excited about Yanis Varoufakis. I studied science and philosophy at uni. University taught me that I can lean just about anything I put my mind to.
Movies: Anything by Stanley Kubrick or Ridley Scott. I'd say that I prefer mostly drama or documentary movies (social justice/social equality). (I refuse to watch action movies)

Music: Joy Orbison, Robert Henke, Daughter, Bjork. Luke Vibert, Underworld. Go GO Penguin. .
The six things I could never do without
Avocado. Quinoa. Steelcut oats. Cinnamon, Merino and engeineered garments.. . .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Geopolitics, economics, bioscience, it really depends on the day. Currently, I'm interested in mid-east politics and am trying to pick up another language. .

How a good stretching routine prevents injury. Pre-hab is rehab.

-Pro tip: people venture from far away places to enjoy our mountains
and forests. Recent discovery: BC is to Mountainbiking as Hawaii is to Surfing. This basically means I have en entire province to explore.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a game of get up at 7am on Saturday without an alarm clock. (Also known as the getting stuff done = avoiding self-sabotage.)
Most often I'm resting or cooking.
Stretching and working on core while listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's not really private if it's written on a public forum.
~I imagine that I do interesting things day to day but to be honest I have a hard time deciding if I'm boring or interesting. (Trying something new entails getting a different type of bike).
~#sphynxcatsofinstagram
~ I love sport but find sports fans boring.
~ I consider myself a risk-averse intensity junkie.
~ I want a dog and a cat or two dogs or two cats. It seems that i need to settle down to make this happen.
You should message me if
~You're decent person.
~You have good book suggestions.
Or
~Are a native speaker of anything other than English. (I want to learn a bit more)
