I've been described as big-hearted, irreverent, easy-going, and a true original (I think this just means that I come off as authentic). In my time on this earth I've taught running clinics, immigrated to Canada from Czechosolvakia (that's what it was called when I lived there!), managed an ice-cream bike franchise, renovated a bathroom ("do it once and you're an expert" is my philosophy ;)), played in a number of bands, ridden 24-hour mountain bike (relay) races, skied in some of the best places around and used parentheses a lot... among other things. Hint - these are good conversation pieces: minus the parentheses. ;)
Im close to my family and a handful of friends. I believe in kindness to people and animals, and although not a vegetarian, the meat in my fridge had a good life.
I'm looking for someone to explore life with. I don't need us to have everything in common, but I do think compatible interests are important.
Kindness / warmth, respect and communication are important to me in relationship. Those are the basics for me, and I think that everything else can be built off of those. Also... I'm Jewish by birth, but don't practice.
Here's hoping for the best on this crazy site!
Long, drawn out conversations.
Various IT things.
I am a big fan of Pixar animated movies, but also enjoy films based on historic events (The Queen, 13 Days). I like TIFF when I can manage to get out to it too.
TV: Current favourites: "House of Cards", "Community", "Brooklyn Nine-Nine, "Game of Thrones".
Music: Musically I've always been partial to a mix of rock, experimental jam bands, country and rootsy Americana. I'm not so much into the indy / electronica scene, but I don't throw a fit if I don't like what someone's playing. :)
Food: I love pretty much anything that doesn't involve entrails or eyeballs but I do love Haggis. I think living in Toronto makes you into a bit of a foodie.
My mountain bike
My two cats (the cutest in the world)
Furthermore: If You understand that subway doors aren't for standing in and move to the inside seat on the TTC, I think we'll get along. :)
Finally: Although I don't obsess about it, health and fitness are priorities for me so I am looking for that in a partner as well. If you're looking for the above in a guy who'll treat you nicely and poke fun at you at the same time drop me a line. :)
