My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Starting one of these things is always a bit awkward and the best advice is to not draw attention to the fact it is a bit weird. But then again people getting married largely because they happened to share a class or workplace is downright bizarre. At least this way we have a chance to satisfy the superficial stuff before looking for a proper connection.

I'm a relatively ordinary guy, kind, honest, athletic, and entirely too shy to excel in the realm of dating. I'm serious and reliable when necessary but otherwise I like to be a little goofy and satirical. In general I figure if the universe won't take itself seriously I shouldn't have to either.

I do a lot of different sports though I'm mostly a runner. I run almost every day of the week and have done a number of marathons and ultra-marathons. I'm not particularly competitive though I have hit the Boston qualifying standard so that made me happy.

Many years back I was involved in a start-up which was quite successful in wasting a couple years, from that I learned that two years was probably a lot longer than I needed to learn that lesson! I worked a while, went back to grad school, and now I'm back writing software for people who pay me to do interesting work. I still spend a chunk of my free time working on various start-up ideas trying to find something that will do some good and I can be proud of.

I've got a lot of family around Edmonton including a niece, nephews, and a gaggle of cousins. As an uncle I accept no responsibility for the odd misconceptions they may acquired such as Bananas growing pre-sliced, or Scrooge being about demon possession... I'm also oddly proud of that fact that when asked to list holiday traditions my nephew's list included “Uncle's bread” (I bake bread which is particularly popular among the younger folks).

I'd like to find someone who's a bit adventurous but also intelligent (ie University educated) and can carry a good conversation. If you have any questions or just want to chat feel free to message.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Running, working, working on startup ideas, trying to get out in general.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
baking bread? People generally seem to like it which makes potlucks weird since just bringing the bread that people want just feels kinda lame.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I were to be honest it might be my legs. I'm not remotely vain, it's just something a lot of people of both genders have found a way to spontaneously comment on. If it sounds weird it probably is but I'm kinda used to it at this point.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Among movies Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, The Princess Bride, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly are good fun.

Indie, Canadian, and foreign films can be awesome.

As long as I don't have to watch anything by Michael Bay I should be satisfied.

As for music classical, 60's folk stuff, rock, electronic, what might be pop, and weird indy stuff. Basically I've just given up looking for stuff considered cool and just find things engrossing enough to stop my mind from wandering off and taking my sanity with it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Running
2. Computers
3-6. Whatever else happens to be giving me purpose at the time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how the world works and the ways it's broken.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
writing code.... dammit, I really need to improve my Friday nights.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
your name isn't 'Erin', because my name is Aaron, and the two of us dating would just be weird and awkward.
