I have spent a lot of time and energy on my primary career in healthcare. With that well underway, I am now more focused on dating and relationships.
I stay fit by working out three times a week, playing volleyball (beach and court), skiing, and I cycle as well. The outdoors are awesome. Camping and fishing are also fun in the summertime.
Sometimes I like to watch a riveting documentary, or movie with my dinner, but with a partner I sometimes desire to have a more intimate dinner where we talk, laugh and get in each other's minds.
I noticed that a lot of women claim to seek a "genuine" or "real" relationship. I imagine a lot of men would like that to, although I haven't gone to the extent of searching their profiles to know for sure. I also imagine that we all don't know how to seek such a person. I do. ;)
With my dream partner, I would like to travel, host bbqs for friends, take in the sights, sounds and smells of Toronto, stay active, be a best friend, and eventually embark on a sexual and spiritual journey.
My ideal partner would be self aware and know that she is a product of social and parental conditioning. Bonus points for taller than 5'3"
Active listening. For example, if you have just had enough of societal pressures, and can't do it all anymore, my first response wont be "Give me credit because I unloaded the dishwasher!!!" Ill be there to talk to.
Movies...Anything Michael Moore, war movies, Band of Brothers, Valkyrie, Saving Private Ryan. Anything Tom Hanks, Da Vinci Code, Cohen brothers movies. *Documentaries about conspiracies, wars, sexuality, sociology, politics, psychology. Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie.
Music.. Any classic rock or anything with acoustic or electric guitar in it. Siriusxm coffeehouse channel is my FAVORITE.
Food..Italian (sparingly.....too many carbs!). Sushi. Greek. Middle Eastern. Ethiopian. Anything ethnic. I make some mean Barbequed gourmet pizzas. Charcuterie is a new hobby. :)
TV Shows.....I don't want cable because I know I am too weak to refrain from watching too much. Every time a friend suggests a new great series, I get hooked and then I need to watch every episode. It just takes too much time away from higher brain power activities. It happened with "Walking Dead", "Its always Sunny in Philadelphia", "Masters of Sex", and now "Orange is the new black". I would much rather read books. I would rather not have cable and not know what I am missing.
I think 'Big Fish' and 'The Notebook' are good movies.
My pee smells funny after I eat Asparagus.
