Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know that labelling is all the rage these days, but I'm a rather
simple person that way. Straight, White, Male. Fantasy writer of
Politically I consider myself to be a member of the "Don't be an
ass" party. Both Liberals and Conservatives have their share of
good ideas and terrible ones.
I'm very in-tune with world events. And try to stay on top of
things as much as I can. I donate regularly to worthy charities and
am very much aware of just how good we have it here in the
Relatively new to the whole online dating thing, but I figured
since there's been little luck in person I had might as well give
this a shot.
I'm an army guy, with a passion for History, Science, Literature
and Horror Movies.
I could go on and on about any and all of those topics, but in the
interest of saving your time and getting to the point, I shall
Though by all means, I will if you ask.
I've seen strange people who meet in stranger ways. Which means
there must be some hope for us nerdy types yet, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a Vehicle Technician with the Canadian Forces. Which means I'm
the guy who tinkers with the heavy equipment and armour that gets
the troops from point A to point B safely. As well as giving that
extra modicum of firepower when needed. It's a lot of machine shop
work, but I love it. I also do a lot of travel this way.
It makes the concept of long term dating difficult. But I don't
mean to turn anyone off by saying that, just please understand that
things may be long distance now and then. I love my job, and strive
to find some level of balance between work and personal life.
Though that's easier said than done at times.
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually a shy, quiet type of person in public. I rarely make
the first approach. It's nothing personal, I just get lost in my
own thoughts easily, it has been mistaken for disinterest before,
but I am working to get past this. A surefire way to get me to
speak is to ask my opinion on something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Political thrillers, or Sci-Fi fantasies. Anywhere that I
can get lost in a well established plot with interesting
characters. I'm a Harry Potter fanboy, though I also enjoy books by
Tom Clancy, Sun Tzu and Steven King.
Music - Metal. Swedish Power Metal and Thrash Metal To the style of
Blind Guardian or Dethklok. Also some Techno/Trance/Hardstyle. Not
ashamed to admit I have a thing for Lindsey Stirling too!
Food - I like (actual) Asian cuisine (not the takeout stuff). Ramen
noodles with spices, Sushi or Teppanyaki.
I try to keep a balanced diet. Honestly there is no vegetable or
fruit I would not at least attempt to eat. I like the classic ick
foods like Broccoli or Beets. Greek or French inspired soups are
really good too!
That said, not a big fan of Provolone cheese. Blech.
Movies - Lots of horror movies. Summer blockbusters are a
hit-or-miss. Generally I would rather sit and watch a very long
movie with an extensive plot and deep characters (Spent a sick day
watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy) as opposed to a bland,
boring and uninspired CGI heavy cliche-fest.
Recently got into Vikings, now I can't escape it. Halp!
Not really a movie, but Foamy the Squirrel is awesome too!

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I actually became an ordained minister while bar hopping one night,
and still hold the credentials. Seriously.
I was TIME magazine's person of the year back in 2006
I'm slowly coming around to liking kids. I've been
indifferent/mildly annoyed by them for most of my life. But over
the past little while I've become a little bit more open. It's a
work in progress, right now I'm trying to clean up my language a
bit whenever they're around.
