Hi. I am relatively new to Ottawa, after spending ten years in Vancouver. I am still exploring the region, taking day trips and treating getting lost as a new adventure -an opportunity to see different parts of the city. I love the outdoors and that there is so much green space here was part of why I moved here. Another reason was to meet different people, which is why I thought I would try this.
As to what I like, etc.:
A few years ago,I realized I really enjoy cooking. It's so much more fun to prepare a dinner knowing someone else will enjoy it too, so I am constantly experimenting with new recipes to try on friends and family - and I DO love the recipes in those Food and Drink mags from the LCBO!!! My music tastes run to jazz and blues but a little rock never hurt anyone! I always have to have music on in my apartment - helps me relax and mellow out. I am at heart a dog person, though I do not have one in my life at the moment.
I am looking to meet someone who knows how to laugh and has a great sense of humour and is also able to have intelligent discussions on what's happening in the world today; someone who lives in the greater Ottawa area; someone who is happy and successful in his work; and most of all, someone who really enjoys life.
For a first date. I'll take the traditional approach and say dinner in a not-necessarily-formal restaurant with a relaxed ambiance, where we can enjoy a fine wine and food, linger over an unhurried meal and get to learn more about each other in a non-pressurized way. Okay, that last part may be a bit unrealistic but hey, you never know!
