Potential nerd alert. Read on!
I am a bit of a chivalrous gentleman (thanks, mom). It's still a thing guys can be. I'm an avid gamer, gadget enthusiast and tech maven. Also big into sci-fi and fantasy. I also love science and sciency things down to the depth of my being, tho I was never much good at anything beyond the computer science variety. The whole genre fascinates me - from cell biology to astrophysics to quantum mechanics to earth and planetary science to oceanography to atmospherics to zoology - love it all. I want to understand how it all works, from the very tiny to the very large.
I can also be found to crawl down YouTube holes finding live performances I have never seen between artists I would have never expected to perform together. My waterworks are not difficult to get flowing lol
The outdoors do not frighten me as a geek. Indeed, the interior of Algonquin is one of my favourite places. Camping or generally being "out in nature" is a thing I enjoy more than almost anything. In fact, as a city-dweller, it is a thing I miss a great deal.
Love to cook. Love good food and good wine. Really love someone in my kitchen distracting me with wine while I cook for them :) I cycle when the weather's good. Also in good weather, camping is fun. I listen to audiobooks when I can, mostly scifi and fantasy. I also listen to a ton of podcasts. I cut cable-tv out of my life years ago so if I can't get it online via Netflix, etc., I don't care about it. Oh, I do like to play pool - my Liverpudlian grandfather taught me billiards and snooker tho I am somewhat rusty.
My head is screwed on right and I am drama-free. Animals of all kinds seem to like me, which is good, because I like them. I am familiar with multi-syllabic words and am comfortable with same. I appreciate those same qualities in others. In other words, please be able to string together a coherent sentence - I like that in a woman!
I am somewhat shy to start and not all that confident in my ability to be charming lol. I have to screw up my courage quite a bit to message women first, so if you want to go ahead, I wont mind :) Besides, it is 2016. The old rules that suggest the guy has to make the first move seem a tad antiquated, no? Would love to hear from you
Oh, and as a standard disclaimer, please have more than a blurry headshot in your profile pics. And the clever artistic shots of nature instead of your face do not count. No pic at all? Please move along. I want to know what you look like!
Women from the central Ottawa area only, please. I do not own a car and unless you seriously interest me, I ain't truckin' to Carp or Embrun.
