My self-summary
Just read my old profile, felt too idealistic and self-deprecating. If I cringed that much, I'd rather not think what it was like for someone else to read it.

As best I can tell, I'm sincere, but guilty of not always thinking before I speak. I guess it's nice to be honest, but there's a smart way of doing it (but working on it).

I like cooking more and more. Specifically I'd like to cook regularly for a nice girl but that's the point of this whole exercise, isn't it?

I'm 34, I think I'm better at building relationships now. Hell, I can't be worse. Also I don't think I really believe in the whole "love at first sight" thing. Meaning, I'm more likely to give it a few dates and explore another person. Date two is usually my worst performance, ha, maybe it's yours as well.

Other than that, I'm left leaning and pretty open minded, but with common sense. I'll never vote conservative, but I won't support every brainless notion that comes from the left.
What I’m doing with my life
Giving this a good ponder. I'm pretty sure everyone is doing the same as well. Who really stops making plans for the future? In the short term I expect to do more education, logically in personal finance, but also maybe some cooking clases (and baking? I'll conquer you some day baking!)
I’m really good at
Taxes, inappropriate comments, trimming my own hair (you try shaving your own head evenly, it's awkward). Cooking? I hope so.
The first things people usually notice about me
Evil laugh and no verbal filter (I make for a stunning first date)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Joe Abercrombie, Anything by Scott Lynch
Anything by Patrick Rothfuss, Kushiel's Legacy Trilogy
Starbuckd by Nick Taylor, Wheel of Time (suck it A Song of Ice & Fire)

Food: Indian, poutine from Quebec (Smoke's is a crime against humanity), German salami sandwiches with mozzarella, cherry cola, ball-park pretzels, smoke meat sandwiches, my homemade arrabiata sauce (which has received nods of approval from Italian girls), American comfort food

Shows: Canadiens games on RDS, House of Cards (netflix version), Premier League on Saturday mornings, Rick and Morty (summer 2015 can't get here fast enough), The Venture Brothers, Britcoms (you haven't laughed till you've seen Hyacinthe scale a fence), Workaholics, The Loop (season one), Gotham, Vikings

Music: The Raveonettes, Chvrches, 2Cellos, Metallica (Black album and everything prior), 90s rock/alternative/ska/punk in general...I recently had a pair of 18 year old girls laugh at me when it came to discussing my taste in music (while at school, I just realized how creepy that phrase comes across). I guess Abe Simpson was right.

Movies: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Munich, Sex Drive, Eurotrip, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Waiting, Gladiator, Monty Python, A Knight's Tale (this was pure genius and you know it), Scent of a Woman, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (although I really need to watch this again, I'm sure I missed stuff), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (all-time fav)
The six things I could never do without
I thought of removing "girls in polka dot dresses"...the remembered how much I still like that. Here's the other five:

Watching soccer on Saturday mornings.
Good craft beers and meat/cheese boards
Ditching this arctic wonderland for a week to get warm in January (I understand this is a little specific)
Quiet time to recharge
A new book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling, retirement (I'm a planner, it's a good thing), how to stay healthy, what I'd like in a lady friend (always flexible, evey woman I've met has something different and great to offer...along with the bad. But it's all about being to accept the faults isn't it?)
On a typical Friday night I am
I make it up as I go along
You should message me if
You're not a princess.

You're quirky, warm and very open minded.

Twisted sense of humour helps (Rick and Morty, anyone?)
