In your profile I really want to find some resonance in both text and pictures. Below I'll try and let you search for the same in me.
I grew up in a small town but became pretty smitten with the weight, bustle, and opportunity of the city. Generally, I try and take advantage of living in Toronto as much as I can: museums, galleries, festivals, the symphony, food(!) anything where I can satisfy my curiosity, learn something, or play at a classy evening.
Conversely, apart from catching up with friends and the above, I spend a decent part of my free time in some active pursuit. Sports (ultimate frisbee mostly), the gym, hiking (I volunteer with an outdoors club), and jogging to fill in the blanks. When I travel I'm often looking for places with amazing landscapes which give me an excuse to explore everywhere to see it all.
Ten specifics about me...
1. More than my share of kindness and intelligence
2. I try to hard to surround myself with people I admire and genuinely like
3. In terms of sense of humour I like silly word play (I know), wry observations, and once I know you better, probably a lot of teasing.
4. It's important to me to be able to reconsider beliefs intellectually and seek personal growth
5. I smile too much for the suavity I imagine
6. Doing the right thing seems important, even when problematic :)
7. Up for jumping in feet first and figuring it out
8. Not a 'little bit of a bad boy' or an alpha type
9. Selective (aka. picky), I'm sure of what I want and don't
10. I like a wide range of music, but not all music. My favourite is probably fairly chill stuff. (Electronica, indie, whatever. Portishead and Bonobo are favs.)
Everyone wants a happily ever after, but to start, I want a mutual connection with you and friendship: that's a good foundation to look for more.
Regarding you (a good topic!)
The necessary... an impressive intellect, caring, attractive to me. Someone seeking a partner in the world.
The *imagined* ideal... someone who would spend an evening with me at a cultural event, another with us in an active pursuit, and the third home together. Someone refined. (You never know though :)
All the best.
