I believe in close relationships(both romantic and platonic) and what that adds to life. Im close to my family and a handful of close friends. I'm a monogamist by nature. I know that in these times of endless options and unclear rules... this can be difficult and I accept that, but that's my preference. 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 to date someone who finds the above interesting, but who can also expose me to new things. In relationship, some things that are important to me are: Kindness / warmth, respect and communication. 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'm not the world's biggest movie buff these days, but I am a big fan of Pixar animated movies. I'm also happy to just about anything suggested to me (by people - not the oddly picked Netflix suggestions). I managed to see a couple of movies at TIFF this summer and loved them ("Lolo" and "The Paradise Suite"). Just to balance things out, I'll round out my movie "repertoire" with blockbuster action flicks in the theatre like Star Wars or The Hunger Games.
TV: Current favourites are the usual suspects: "House of Cards", "Community", "Portlandia", "Zoo", "30 Rock".
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.

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. :)
