I'm a Myers-Briggs INFP. Currently living in BC.
Never been married, never had kids (not the human kind). Montreal-born, Sydney (Australia) raised. Lived the first half of my life in Sydney, Australia, and the second half in Northern BC.
Hmm I should say that I am 45, born in 1971. Just wanted to mention that as people have told me they thought the age was a mistake.
And then after that my first priority is to be healthy and physically active, as this is one thing I CAN control, or at least make the best of. I love swimming. I lift weights. I also enjoy power yoga, which I do every day.
☆It is important to me that anyone I date also has good oral hygiene and flosses every day.
☆Detecting odours. I have the most amazing sniffer and am very sensitive to smells.
☆Taking photographs creatively - and art if I can just find the time outside of work to do it!
☆Having a sense of humour.
☆Being very human (been told I do that very well - whatever that means!)
Movies/TV Shows, Actors/Entertainers, Writers/Directors: Remi Gaillard (French director/comedian), Jane Eyre, Bridget Jones's Diary, Amelie, American Beauty, Very Annie Mary, Mamma Mia, Garden State, Magdalene Sisters, To Kill a Mockingbird, Local Hero, The Piano with Holly Hunter, My Left Foot, White Oleander, Alice in Wonderland, The Great Gatsby, Monty Python, period pieces such as Marie Antoinette and Pride and Prejudice, Battlestar Galactica (both old & new), Tim Burton, Lucky McKee - in particular "May" and "Sick Girl" (House of Horrors), Ang Lee, Colin Firth, Kirsten Dunst, Minnie Driver, Kevin Spacey, Jim Carrey, Reese Witherspoon, Dylan Moran, Jane Horrocks, Woody Allen, Barry Humphries, Michael Moore, Sasha Baron Cohen, The Cove (Richard O'Barry) and many more.
Some examples of Music I like are Boogie Belgique, Lily Allen, Riverdance/Lord of the Dance, the Local Hero soundtrack (Dire Straits), David Byrne, The Cure, Bright Eyes (Simon & Garfunkel), Bjork, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Redbox, Depeche Mode, most 80s' music, Vanessa Mae and modernised classical style in general, Ennio Morricone, Vivaldi and many more... To be honest I'm the biggest John Denver fan I know. Yes I know he's dead but his spirit will never die.
My favourite cuisines are Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, East Indian, Greek & Mexican. I love most food except for seafood. I am mostly vegan. It's not that I don't like the taste of meat, I just don't like the way animals are treated in the food industry.
But I'll use this space to fit this in: I'm saddened by the number of people that message me and then deactivate their profile before I can even reply. What is going on there??? Or are they blocking me? Why?
Another thing that I will admit is that I survived the type of childhood that would have caused many the average soul to have committed suicide by now or be attached permanently to the psych ward. It has stunted me greatly but I chose life and sanity, and trust my innate intelligence, which is all I have (having no family that is sane, and living currently in a very harsh environment on many levels) to get me through. My past has also given me a bottomless pit of compassion.
Thirdly, I have been on OKC about 18 years now, since before it was even called OKC, and on the whole, guys on here have expected me to travel great distances to meet them, not just for the first date but subsequent ones as well. That is no way to treat a lady and basically, if you aren't interested in making the effort I won't be making the effort for you.
