I still enjoy playing, and being silly/goofy...but I can just as easily be serious when needed (i.e. meeting your parents). I don't take life too seriously...or internet dating. I mesh well with people who are optimistic/positive, kind, witty, introspective, and spontaneous...and know how to live in the moment. I can easily laugh at myself...and never feel the need to belittle others to feed my ego.
I'm looking for fun, friendly, and casual experiences...without expectations. But I also desire connections of substance...regardless of it's outcome. Ultimately, I would love to meet someone who really excites me, and develop something more meaningful....I would just rather avoid prematurely jumping into anything serious before we've really had time to get to know each other. Besides, I'm not really in relationship mode these days...but I'm not interested in shallow connections either.
I'm far from being the jealous or possessive type...and would far rather get to know someone for who she is than what I want her to be. You just need to be relatively sane.
I like kids and animals. 'Guy with small dog' alert... I have a 4 year old Cairn Terrier. He's 12 pounds of pure beast....his name is Bob. He seems to like me...
To appease your curiosity...I'm 174.45273lbs (approximately). I'm feeling more 'average' than 'athletic' these days...I could lose 15 pounds. So I should probably work on my personality...
I enjoy tennis, hockey, skiing, snowshoeing, badminton, soccer, jogging, swimming, and mountain biking....although, I'm not as active as I used to be (it must have something to do with my age)...
I like to camp, and have pretty much everything we will need...except a car. I use my trusty bike to get around the city...even in the winter (yup, one of those people).
I like looking at pretty things...and not so pretty things. Wandering through a gallery and deconstructing art is bliss to me. Company is always nice.
Fyi...I live alone in the 'trendy' Plateau...(I have my own fridge and everything). Well, actually...I live with my dog. He seems to like me...
...and being compassionate, fun, generous, affectionate, and making others feel at ease...
...and at randomly composing a variety of words together to convey a message that is essentially void of content and meaning; in a way that mocks it's own intent, and reinforces it's insignificant existence.
Film makers : Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Jean-Pierre Jeanet, Luc Besson, and Quentin Tarantino. I really like documentaries.
Music: I like everything from electronica (mostly drum n' bass, dub step, ambient, and breakbeats) and world music, to classical and rock...and alternative, hip hop/rap...funk, punk...the happy birthday song. I LOVE to shake my bum to beats (mostly to electronica)...although, I'm not much of a dance partner when it comes to rehearsed steps (you would probably have to lead me).
I'm not picky about food...and enjoy trying new dishes. I'm also not much of a cook (sorry mom)...but I have nice kitchen supplies. I can carve a mean fruit platter...and can make simple dishes look appetizing.
1. Lists of things I could never do without.
2. Money (unfortunately).
3. My sanity.
6. Humour (my sense of humour).
7. My iPhone (how embarrassing).
8. My bike.
9. My toothbrush.
10. My dog 'Bob'.
11. My ability to count.
I'm losing my hair......ha!...(it doesn't bother me).
I think I'm closer to 5'8.5"...I rounded up.
I don't like the taste of beer (or most things with alcohol)...no, there's nothing wrong with me. I've just never been much of a drinker.
I procrastinate (it took me a long time to include that in my profile).
I'm not perfectly symmetrical.
I have absolutely no desire to fit in.
You are open-minded.....respect all people, regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, or social status.....and know the difference between confidence and arrogance.
...you play tennis.....even though I'm having shoulder issues these days.
Don't message me if you're a social climber...or arrogant, shallow, egocentric, judgmental, short-tempered, vain, an art/intellectual snob, gossipy, or self centred....or adopt the word 'cool' as a way to elevate your social status and supress/discriminate against others...or if you're embarrassed about having a profile on a dating site.
If you subscribe to religious doctrine/propaganda then we probably won't end up in a romantic relationship...but it doesn't mean we can't be friends.
I know my profile is slightly 'epic'...but I want to avoid wasting anyone's time if we're not on the same page. Thanks for taking the time to read it all...you just earned a gold star.
