Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am looking for that one true love of my life, someone to love,
cherish and honour for the rest of my life. This special lady would
be treated with love, respect and loyalty. I'm looking for a true
soul mate for our lives journey. Although I am an average guy in
many respects, I feel that I am above average in the things that my
special lady would be looking for in their special guy. I hope that
I'll be able to offer that one special lady my unique combination
of wit, humour and charm (well, OK, lots of humour, I love to have
As Dr. Seuss said, "We’re all a little weird. And life is weird.
And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying
weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
But I'm nice and respectful. Take care everyone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Besides looking for that special lady, I am planning on home
renovations - both interior and exterior. Maybe I'm watching too
much Mike Holmes or Love It or List It, but they have given me a
lot of ideas.
I live a quiet life, love to bake and am always searching for the
ultimate cheesecake, muffin, brownie or pie recipe, love to play
hockey and follow hockey and of course there's always movies to go
(always wanting to know what the newest and greatest movie is going
to be - can't wait for the next Ironman, Avengers, Captain America,
or any other science fiction, rom-com (I think Sandra Bullock is
one great actress) and action movies - but I don't do horror
movies) and spy novels to read (sadly my favourite author, Tom
Clancy, just died). I love my garden and obsess about my lawn,
tomato and pepper patch during the summer. I love listening to the
oldies and crooners especially in the evenings on Jewel 88.5 FM (a
great station). I'm not into snowmobiling, hunting or fishing at
all. I don't watch a huge amount of TV other than my few favourite
channels such as The Weather Network (my job and activities keep
outside quite a bit), Space (hey, we've all got to watch the latest
Dr. Who episode or see what new movies are coming), the various
Discovery Channels, and, yes I am admitting this, I do watch W
Network (I get great ideas from watching Candice, but somehow my
execution of those ideas wouldn't be as good as hers) (not to
mention her budget).
So, I hope that this resonates with a special lady out there who
might take a chance on meeting a great guy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
a number of things such as cooking (I love to bake, cheesecakes are
my specialty and I'm the pastry chef at family events), gardening
and playing hockey (I'm a goalie - still waiting to be signed by
the Chicago Blackhawks or Vancouver Canucks, LOL).
The first things people usually notice about me

is my sense of humour. I love to laugh and make others laugh as
well. What you see is what you get with me. I am also a very loyal,
loving and compassionate person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a voracious reader, love my techno-thriller novel (Tom Clancy,
Dale Brown, Stephen Coonts, et al), my cookbooks (have way too
many) and books on hockey (after all these years still trying to
figure out how to stop the puck, LOL).
Favourite movies - love science fiction, rom-com's (I mean, who
doesn't love Sleepless in Seattle or You've Got Mail), animated
(love movies like Finding Nemo) and action movies (and yes I do
like Bruce Willis, and Jason Statham movies, love the Iron Man
series of movies). I also love anything with Sandra Bullock (give
her the Oscar now for Gravity, outstanding performance), Tom Hanks,
Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow. Of course, the Marvel and DC
Comics Universe on the silver screen (who doesn't love Robert
Downey Jr. as Iron Man, be honest, LOL).
Food - most anything goes except for fish/sushi.
I don't watch a huge amount of TV but I do watch Dr. Who and Hockey
Night in Canada (lot's of time on a Saturday night, until I find
that special someone), BBC, Deutsche Welle and of course Leafs TV
and the NHL Network. And I absolutely love the various Kia hamster
commercials, very well done and hilarious.
Life is too short to waste it on bad coffee and I can't live
without my French Press (ditto for the tea pot as well, equal time
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
To love someone and be loved back, most important of all!!!
My family - they are the center of my world
My goalie equipment and playing hockey (playing goal is so easy
conceptually (I mean, why not just catch the puck, right?) but oh
so difficult in execution, LOL)
My garden and gardening
My French press, KitchenAid mixer, Cuisinart, recipe file,
spring-form, whoopie pie and scone pans, my pie plates and my King
Arthur Flour, Penzy's spices catalogue and Cook's Illustrated,
America's Test Kitchen and Southern Living magazines and books on
cooking, gardening and hockey
Strawberries/raspberries/peaches/ice cream/chocolate/good coffee
Hanging out at Starbucks, Coffee Culture or Second Cup hunting for
that great special cup of coffee or tea (notice that I didn't
mention McDonald's, Timmy's or Country Style, LOL) - OOPs that's
way too much in the list, oh well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Finding that special lady to love, honour and cherish.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing hockey, out to a movie, doing laundry, visiting my family
or friends or rearranging my sock drawer, LOL.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

it, I'm a nerd, LOL!!) (got a Dr. Who coffee mug for Christmas as

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're interested in meeting a nice, kind, honest and decent guy,
who will worship you, treat you well and be your ultimate and best
friend. I'm not into games with a persons emotions or heart. Who
knows what our common interests in life may lead us to. We are all
looking for someone who is kind, decent and honourable and not
superficial in any way.
I hope that once you read the above, that you'll maybe take a
chance and send me a message. Hopefully, we'll meet for a nice
coffee and conversation and just maybe you'll give a decent and
special guy a chance. All the best to everyone who's ventured to
this point. Take care.
Who are you looking for?
