Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
EDIT: So I'm back again. The last time I edited this, I said I was
going to give this a serious try of actually contacting and meeting
people and I didn't. So I don't know why I'm thinking I'm really
going to do it this time.
So months ago, I created this profile and basically ignored it,
only coming onto OKCupid to...stalk profiles (I guess...) and
answer questions. But I'm 27 now and after seeing a lot of people I
knew back in high school getting married, having kids, etc. I
figured I'd come back on here and give it a serious try...maybe. I
always figured that trying to meet people online is the last step
before giving up.
I have a economics degree from UVic and am just trying to figure
out what I'm going to do with it. I am currently working two jobs,
so I'm normally working anywhere between 30-50 hours a week and
with the little time I have for free time, I'm usually catching up
on other things or running errands. So, needless to say, if you're
one of those people who always needs to be with someone 24/7, I'm
probably not the person for you.
I'm not a fan of the bar or nightclub scene...unless there's a band
I like that's playing. And that means I'm at those places a few
times a month because I love live music that comes into town. This
city also produces some awesome bands (i.e. Acres of Lions,
Armchair Cynics, Vince Vacarro, Current Swell, Maurice, etc)
I'm looking for something long-term, but if that's not what you're
looking for and you're just looking for a friend, that's all good
too. I'll be glad to grab a coffee or hang out and get to know you
I don't really have any specific type of person I'm looking for. I
guess I'm just looking for someone who will like me for who I am
and not try to change me to fit them. Although I may try to turn
you into a bit of a nerd.
I guess that's about it. If I've gotten you interested and you want
to get to know more about me or just want to talk, please contact
me by sending a message.
I am always on the go, a good listener, and I'm awesome
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently looking for a job to give me an idea of what to do with
the rest of my life. Hopefully something that will let me apply
what I've learned in post-secondary. In the meantime, I work two
on-call jobs which requires me to work anywhere from 30-50 hours a
week. I've even had weeks where I don't work at all. So, my free
In my spare time, I tend to read a lot. Been reading comic books
since I can remember and have acquired quite a vast collection.
I've lost count in recent years but its somewhere in the
I'd like to consider myself a movie buff, but I probably don't get
to see as many movies as I want. A lot of that has to do with time
issues and so much going on in my life and people not wanting to
see the same movies I want.
I also go to concerts a lot. Sometimes too much. My friends often
joke around with me that they're unsure of how I'm able to afford
to go to all of them. So, you will probably find me at places like
bars and nightclubs when there's a band playing.
Basically I do what a typical guy in his mid-twenties does.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I would have to say that I'm good at picking up things. It was
always liked that with school that I learned the material quite
quickly. However, I also feel that I can always improve no matter
how quickly I pick anything up.
Also I'm really good at listening apparantely. But I think that's
more due to the fact that I don't speak a lot when I'm with people

My smile, I guess. All my co-workers have told me that I'm always
smiling. I tend to smile a lot.
:) <---- See~! Even typing something, I'm smiling in text~!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Mainly just read comic books. Occassionally, I'll read an actual
book book. For example, I'm currently reading 'Freakonomics' after
one of my professors recommened it to me. I've read books by Brad
Meltzer and Janet Evanovich who I would say are two of my
I don't know where to start on movies. I'll pretty much watch
ANYTHING as long as it's not a dumb turn off your brain for two
hours and enjoy the explosions type of movie. Like a Michael Bay
movie. :P Not to say I don't like explosions in movies, but there
has to be more than that.
Here's a list of bands I've seen live (or am about to see live)
over the last 3 years. Chances are, if you like any of them or seen
any of them, we'll get along fine: Armchair Cynics, Acres of Lions,
Vince Vaccarro, Incubus, Three Days Grace, Nine Ince Nails, Mobile,
Sum 41, Billy Talent, Band of Skulls, Hey Rosetta, Finger Eleven,
Band of Skulls, The Dudes, Dan Mangan, Silversun Pickups, Bedouin
Soundclash, Sam Roberts, Matt Good, Mother Mother, Ill Scarlett,
USS, Cage the Elephant, The Killers, and a lot I'm probably
forgetting. Yeah, I've been to a lot of shows.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
...don't know what else...oxygen, I guess. Food...water...good
health. Pick one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- What my week is going to look like
- When am I going to meet someone, hence why I'm here
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually reading or watching TV. Very rarely am I not home on a
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I live a straight-edge lifestyle and am proud of it. Basically the
jist of it is if you've never heard of it is that I don't drink, I
don't smoke, and I don't take drugs. Somehow that has some people
think I'm no fun too. Don't understand how one has anything to do
with the other.
I don't care if you do any of these things (well, maybe the smoking
and doing drugs part). If you like it, great, but it's not right
for me so don't try to force me to do it because you do it,
otherwise, it isn't going to work out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested. Duh. Why else would you be messaging me? But I'm
not all that picky. If I had to narrow it down as to what I'm
- Preferably if you live near the Victoria area would be
- Some sort of post-secondary education...this doesn't mean you
need to have a degree, but just so I know that you are
- If you like comics...or in other words you're as big of a
nerd/geek as I am
- I am a Canucks fan...you better be one too, and not one of those
bandwagon fans. Flames fans need not apply. :P
- You like to cook or want to learn to cook...and are willing to
take up a student who's eager to learn or a partner who will wants
to learn with someone
- If you like the same music as I do
- Speaking of music, I find girls that play an instrument (i.e.
guitar, bass, etc.) pretty attractive.
See? That's not picky at all is it?
Sidebar: You should also message me if you know and can teach me
the ways of the Force. ;)
