Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm looking to spend time with am amazing woman with similar
interests and goals. I'm motivated and goal oriented, but still fun
and am always looking for an adventure. Family is important to me;
I love big family get togethers.
I've traveled in the past and don't plan to stop until I've visited
every continent. I've been to Europe several times and I used to
live in Japan. I love it there and go back periodically. I still
speak a bit of Japanese and I can speak French quite well. I've
lived in Victoria most of my life and love it here. Nothing beats
the scenery here and love being able to keep active outdoors year
I value traditional and classic things - I'm restoring a 101 year
old house and have such a nice claw foot tub that I don't even have
a shower, photography (I still have a darkroom but don't use it
much, damn digital is too easy), reading the classics, playing
board games and letter writing. I have a tv but no cable, its only
for movies. I barbeque in any climate, enjoy cooking and baking. I
don't have any pets of my own but I love animals.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, I'm a carpenter but I build furniture for my own home at
night. Building furniture is my dream job (although I do enjoy the
carpentry) and I have a plan to make it my full time job over time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking really good food for family and friends. I've had moderate
success with growing a large garden but I don't have the space at
my current house. I love cracking up my friends with my wit and
anecdotes and I'm always buying books that I don't have time to
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Some people say my voice but others, who get a bit closer, say it's
my blue eyes.

I love to read, although I never have enough time. I like history
books and classic fiction. Right now I'm working on Oliver Twist
and other recent reads include Heart Of Darkness, The Complete Far
Side, Wuthering Heights, Tess Of The D'Urbervilles and The
I love movies and I'm willing to give almost any movie a chance. I
like old, new, foreign, domestic. Some favorites include The Big
Sleep, Indiana Jones, anything Kurosawa, original Star Wars, Monty
Python and the Bourne movies.
I like good food mostly. Japanese, especially katsu or curry. I
believe that the barbeque is the only way to cook meat and I don't
care how cold out it is. But if its a potluck, I'll bring dessert.
I love fruit pies. Cookies are good. Can I make you a lava cake?

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
