My self-summary
I am a wonderful and good looking man. Really; it’s true. My mom told me herself. My mom would never lie to me! :-)

But seriously, who am I? Here’s the readers digest version of the complex human being that is me: I'm a scientist, a business man, an artist, a philosopher, a friend, a father and a lover. I'm an explorer and an academic. I'm part idealist, part realist. Part dreamer, part pragmatist. I am deeply passionate and outgoing or quiet and introspective. I am happy in the city, in the country or in the wilderness. I can have a beer with the boys and talk sports or discuss the origins of the universe and the meaning of it all over fine wine. I can go from wearing jeans and a t-shirt in the morning to a formal black tie event in the evening. I have experienced wonder and boredom and joy and despair. Good times and adversity. And so much more...

I should also state I'm an Atheist and Humanist so if you are at all religious or overly mystical/spiritual (In a crystal energy, Deepak Chopra perversion of Quantum Physics sort of way) we likely won't be a match. Also, if you ascribe to any pseudoscientific alternative medicine beliefs or only eat organic, believe vaccines cause autism, hate GMOs etc we won't get along. I know the above just eliminated 99.9% of the women in Vancouver but I'm looking for the 0.1%.

I'm also not an upgraded member so can't see anyone who "likes" me. Pretty much a useless feature for most of us :)

P.S. My beautiful daughter is very important to me. I have her half the time and am a hands on Dad. You must be willing to share me! Having said that there is still lots of time for each other. Also, I should let you know up front that it says I "don't want any more" for children on my profile which means that if you have any children already that is fantastic but I had that little medical procedure several years ago so won't be fathering any more of my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Making some changes and starting a new business. It seems like many women here spend all their free time travelling. While I do enjoy travelling and want to do more in the future, at the moment much of my resources are going into my business so I won't be jetting around the world in the immediate future. If you are looking primarily for a travel buddy that won't be me right now.

I've also finally got my SCUBA certification and have been doing a fair bit of diving recently. It's taking up a good chunk of my spare time. So if you dive or are interested in learning it would be awesome to find a partner and a dive buddy :)
I’m really good at
I'm not one to brag but I've been called a renaissance man. I am good at a great many varied things and always like to learn new skills. There are few challenges I won't take up and with google and youtube, instructions are always at hand.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Does this matter? It won't really tell you who I am because I like a very wide variety of things.
Six things I could never do without
1. Heart
2. Brain
3. At least one lung and kidney...
4. Water, food, oxygen
5. My sense of humour :)
6. My iPhone. What did we do before having portable computers in our pockets???
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why it seems to be difficult to connect with someone else. It shouldn't be so hard to communicate openly and honestly and build a relationship. However, it seems that at our age so many have built up walls, have inflexible habits and lifestyles or have unrealistic expectations of potential partners. I known this sounds rather negative. But I still have hope that I can find someone emotionally mature who is ready and willing to build something amazing with a partner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with my daughter or hanging out with friends. Or sometimes just a quiet night resting and rejuvenating. Lately, resting to be up early Saturday to go diving some weekends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, it wouldn't be private then would it? Besides, you need to get to know me if you want all my secrets :)
You should message me if
I'm here to see what's out there and looking for a connection, but until then I'm dating and enjoying life. So what am I looking for? I want to fall madly in love with an awesome woman who I can share life and experiences with. I want someone who can keep me on my toes... a woman who's beautiful, super cool and smart. Just because a woman is good looking, it doesn’t mean she’s ATTRACTIVE. Sure, physical attraction is important and part of the equation but let’s be honest, there are plenty of women out there who look good. A bunch of pictures of your cleavage and you in bikinis might catch my attention for 30 seconds but if you want to win me over you have to have to be honest, kind, communicative and emotionally mature. And most important is intelligence. Light up my mind and you’ll light up the rest of me too!
The two of us
