Where does one begin explaining themself?
I recently graduated from Camosun College and am excited to start my new career. Education is very important to me, and I am working towards a career in the IT field, something I have been involved with since the time I could walk more or less. I also have a diploma in Personal Fitness Training, which I do not do as a career anymore, but health/fitness is something I am still very passionate about, and I love to support the people who are important in my life with any of their goals or aspirations.
I consider myself to be a delightful mixed bag of passions. I enjoy the cliche online dating activites such as hiking, running, live music, (mis)adventuring, road trips, and fitness. Conversely, I also enjoy trivia, board games, reading, landscaping/gardening, stimulating conversation, learning to cook new exciting foods, and pretty much any kind humour.
Well I feel I have spoke a bit too much of myself by this point. The ideal woman for me would have a sense of purpose in her life, be happy with who she is, and always be striving to improve herself as a person. She can appreciate a somewhat oldschool romantic, who can be just as goofy as he is serious. She is open to the potential of a serious relationship, given, of course, that there is sufficient interest and chemistry between the two of us. A woman that can make me think is a special one indeed. Lastly this woman would have some form of independence, and is equally happy giving/receiving in a relationship. I enjoy making new friends, but feel my life would be more complete with that special someone to learn, grow, and share life's many ups and downs with.
I like to think of myself as a student of life. I love to learn new things and new skills all the time. I enjoy long-winded intellectual conversation as much as a good joke. At times I am a terrible pun-master(be forewarned), I try not to take myself too seriously when I don't have to. I have a wide open array of musical taste, but I tend to gravitate towards Rock/Metal, although music in general is just so energizing to me. I also love animals, I own a crazy little cat, but get along with just about any animal.
Given our "throw-away", instant gratification culture I believe that online dating is inherently flawed for those of us who are looking to make deep connections. My exposure thus far has left me a little skeptical, but I am cautiously optimistic that there is a weird, wonderful, and compassionate woman out there that can prove me wrong about this :)
If you are still reading this, that is fantastic. I would love to hear about you as well, and I swear I am not so hum drum when I actually talk to people, I just like to be up front with people online :)
