My self-summary
Who I am:

I'd call myself a friendly introvert. I'm happy in the company of someone I like, but I do enjoy space and solitude as well. And I'm more of a listener than a talker. Or at least that's what people tell me :-P

I devour books, learn new stuff for the fun of it and can keep up a conversation with almost anyone about their passions or areas of expertise without getting bored or left behind. Intelligence and intensity are both things I look for in a partner.

Got a sense of humour that runs toward snark, sarcasm and self-deprecation. I don't take myself too seriously. Bad puns and dry wit are favorites, but I'm not above laughing at dirty jokes either ;-) I'm never mean-spirited in humour with someone, unless of course I know them well enough to be sure they're alright with trading sick burns; my friends and I roast each other regularly.

Fond of animals, provided they aren't trying to kill me or bite my shins off.

I like to drive, to walk or to wander. That means road trips, exploring cities on foot, or even just going outside to clear my head and gather my thoughts. Stuck inside in the middle of winter makes me stir crazy.

Who I'm looking for:

I have a serious weakness for women who are geeky/nerdy to some degree. By that I mean shy, introverted, intelligent, focused, eccentric, rational or any combination of the above. If that describes you, message me :-)

The short version:

Strong minded, smartassed, introverted geek who has his life together, seeking same.

Wow, you read this all the way to the end? ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm actually pretty happy with how my life's turned out. Shocking, I know :-) But there's a lot going on for me to be happy about, and my stress levels have never been lower.

Got a stable job with excellent coworkers and a laid-back boss. What's more I actually enjoy it, occasional 5am wake-ups notwithstanding. Also, dental, yay!

Got my own place, my own car and zero debt to worry about. I live within walking distance of my work, two grocery stores and several places to eat that aren't fast food. And if I want the amenities of a city, Kingston is a twenty minute drive.
I’m really good at
Thinking, listening, learning and cracking bad jokes. I occasionally fancy myself a good writer too; if you've read this far you can be the judge of that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:Dresden files, Altered Carbon, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Discworld series, Song of Ice and Fire series, Laundry series, Old Man's War, Redshirts

TV Shows: Firefly, Burn Notice, Mythbusters, Monty Python, Game of Thrones, Futurama, Rick and Morty

Food:Mediterranean cooking, Indian cooking, Pub food, Seafood
Six things I could never do without
Oxygen, water, food, shelter, sunlight and being a smartass :-)

Or, if I'm being serious...

My family, friends, a computer with a working wifi connection, and the contents of my bookshelf...

And being a smartass. I could survive without being a smartass, but I wouldn't call that living.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
The honest answer to this question is "working". Hey, someone's got to, and I'm heroically letting my fellow bakers get a head start on the weekend :-)

So instead of a typical friday night, how about a typical day off? These days I'd be:

Playing games with my online friends. We've got our own TS server, and perhaps a dozen different games we all enjoy.

Curled up with a good book. And my cat. Who does not understand why the book is more interesting than giving her attention.

Hanging out with my offline friends, or my little brother.
You should message me if
You want to :-)

If you're clever, funny, kind, shy/introverted and looking for some or all of the above in a partner.

If you're wondering why I haven't messaged you yet
I have not had the best of luck with online dating. The ratio of bad experiences to good ones is discouraging. And I know from talking to people that I'm not alone in this.

When I do send messages on here, I generally aim for a couple paragraphs, to avoid getting lost amid the flood of "hey, what's up?" messages. If I've "liked" you or viewed your profile more than once, it might mean I'm still thinking about what to write.
The two of us
