My self-summary
I'm going to be brutally honest here because I'm looking for someone to be with long term. So I'm pretty much just going to sit and wait it out until the right person for me comes along. So here are some facts about me:
-I'm very physically active - I go to the gym regularly and I love lifting weights, I play ice hockey, squash, tennis, cycle, hike, rollerblade, and run. I've worked as a Personal Trainer at Goodlife Fitness and now do it privately as a part time side job. Fitness is a big part of my life. It would be nice to find someone who also makes it a pretty big part of theirs.
- I studied art in college and university. I'm an artist and art is another big part of my life. ...I paint. And I've had some art shows in the city. And I work in an art gallery full time. It's a big gallery and I've been there for 24 years.
-I was born and raised in downtown Toronto and I love to wander around the city exploring neighborhoods. I tend to walk a lot and can walk all day if I have the chance.
-I'm just as happy staying in as going out.
-I might drink some wine now and then but really happy with just some tea or coffee. So not a big drinker.
-I love lifting weights at the gym and usually write up my workout routine and keep track of my progress in a journal...which I carry around as if it's my bible (actually it pretty much is my bible, lol). God knows what I would do if I ever lost it...bad pun I know :-)

I'm 52 but truly believe age is just a number. That doesn't mean that I'm looking for someone half my age but what it does mean is that I don't use age as an excuse for anything. I kill it at the gym and train 20 and 30 year olds that can't keep up with me.

I live and work in downtown Toronto. I'm interested in meeting someone who is also living downtown ideally.
I love to laugh and have a pretty good sense of humor...you must as well.
I also enjoy going to art galleries, movies, and listening to music.
I like stimulating conversation. I tend to be attracted to people who are smart without being arrogant, athletic and/or fit without being a jock, and creative without being pretentious.

I don't like endless messeging on here. It's way too nice out, so after a few messeges please be either interested in meeting up or ending the conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Working out....a lot! Trying to get past 4 chin ups. Living it, enjoying it. Looking at how I can semi-retire in about 5 years and have more free time. Life's too short they say.
I’m really good at
Painting
Skating
Daydreaming :)
Fitness
The first things people usually notice about me
My size (I'm petite). If it's a real problem I can wear heels sometime...do hockey skates count :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of books on Fitness. And books about art and artists, some on philosophy - love the existentialists, but more non-fiction for sure. As far as movies go some of my favorites are Magnolia, Dead Man, Down By Law, Fargo, The Royal Tenenbaums, Grand Budapest Hotel, Rushmore,The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Pulp Fiction, Blood Simple, Boogie Nights, Kill Bill, Alien. Tarantino, Coen Brothers So many movies to list here really.
For tv - Orange is The New Black, Game of Thrones, Broad City, Dexter, Walking Dead, The Sopranoes, Breaking Bad, Girls, Nurse Jackie, True Blood, Homeland, Arrested Development, True Detective. Sons of Anarchy.
My taste i n music is very eclectic. I'll listen to a lot of different stuff new and old. Right now I'm listening to Grimes, Sleigh Bells, The Black Keys,, Radiohead, and Death From Above 1979. And lot's of older stuff like the pixies, Sonic Youth, and BOWIE of course.
Food, well I'll eat anything. I do love spicy food -Indian Thai, etc.
Six things I could never do without
Art in all it's forms - visual, music. Movies, books, etc.
Physical Fitness
the sun
Good conversation
human contact
Some free time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Art
-My workouts....should tomorrow be an upper or lower body day. Yes I lift weights.
-What new physical activity I want to try.
- How nice it would be to semi retire soon and do some travelling. I like warm climates :)
On a typical Friday night I am
It's pretty much the same as any other day. Either relaxing at home or having dinner or seeing a movie with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to eat peanut butter or almond butter right out of the jar - and lots of it!

You find women with a bit of muscle attractive.
You're into art.
