My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am widely considered to be the master of the single entendre.

Large mammal, 6'2 - 200 lbs; eats bamboo shoots and pizza; powerful hind quarters; will attack when not fed. Grrrr.

I wish every day was Halloween, and I often behave as if it is.

I don't want to go back in time, I want to bring time to me.

Looking back, nostalgia is my only regret.

I grew up in a wood shop in the Junction; I've lived most of my adult life in Parkdale.

Yes, the wood shop thing is true.

My Dad used to say, "Don't burn your bridges." So I started napalming them.

Then I burned down his wood shop.

I hate the smell of sawdust in the morning, or any other time of day.

I know, you LOVE the smell of sawdust, but you didn't have to live in it.

I am naturally contrarian, and I am quietly annoyed by cliches. But maybe it's a blessing in disguise!

I'm not always serious.

I am willing to meet people just to have fun. But I am looking for a relationship, eventually. But not just with anyone who fits my application requirements. We have to have chemistry, too: we should both have carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen. Or it's just not going to work if one of us is not human.

Now I feel guilty about my chauvinistic, human-centric xenophobia as expressed above. Sorry, I'm only human.

I am anti-stalker.

I actually don't have application requirements (I lied). I get along with most people who are engaged mentally. Someone who wants to tell me insightful things, not about what happened on the Bachelorette. Someone who realizes that I am by far the most modest person in the entire world. Gets irony. Likes analyzing creative ideas using reason, realizing that they function together in spite of what Wordsworth says. Someone who is passionate about narrative art (in the broad sense) and/or ideas. Doesn't have unresolved anger problems that get dumped on others. However, I don't mind introspective, unresolved existential anxiety; that's worldly and sexy, and I suspect those who scoff at it have small souls. There, I said it.

reading and writing words

feeling sorry for the most despised people

Arguing because I'm passionate about ideas, and because I want to solve problems. A sure way to lose an argument is to try and win, instead of considering the structure of an opponent's arguments and how they relate to my own.

mercurial speech

sensuality

story telling

sniffing out lies

using ice cream similes to describe genitalia

By the way, I do believe sex is like poker, everyone who plays thinks they are good at it, but so few actually are. By the way, I know "the secret."

Stinky cheesecake

There is a restaurant on Ossington that named a poutine after me. When they told me this all I said was, "Does this mean I can have it for free?"

Lately I'm reading a lot of books by women with female, first-person narrators. Secretly I am hoping this will help me understand women. I guess it's not a secret now.

Beauvoir, Milan Kundera, Amy Hemple, Byron, Orwell, Houellbecq, Julie Hecht, The Guilt Emails (By my Mom), Dostoyevsky, Paul Auster, Quine, Saul Bellow, Arendt, Wittgenstein, Lynne Trusse, Spinoza, Ian McEwan, Will Self, Marx (Groucho and his brothers Karl and Engels), Jorge Luis Borges, Umberto Eco, Sartre, Dorothy Parker; Scrooge McDuck comics.

I like reading literary essays by great fiction writers about other great fiction writers.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fantasizing about giving a tour of the contemporary world to a famous literary person from history. "So, you see, George, everything you predicted came true...Do you prefer I call you Eric?"

"The North part of Korea has become a necocracy? Why didn't I think of that? It's Bigger Bigger Bigger Brother!"

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to play in the leaves/snow.

You want to talk about fun ideas and joke around.

You want to have a snow ball fight.

You want to flirt.

You think a date should be fun. (Please don't ask me what my "goals" are. I will likely say, "to go on a date that's not like a job interview." And I don't want to be rude).

You only lie when you're joking

You're not with the language police.

You want to ride bicycles and crunch the leaves with your tires.

Your pics resemble you. Mine do by the way, and they're not even flattering. That's because I don't want anyone to go on a date with me and feel I don't look like my pictures.

You want to go to a used book store.

You want to spend an entire day just eating everything in St. Lawrence Market.

You are considerate and are aware of people and how they function as more than an extension of yourself.

You don't think this profile is obnoxious, although that's probably a fair comment.
