So here I am, looking to meet new people, make some new friends and maybe even to find new love.
I hope that does not scare you away.
Maybe I should explain the falling in love bit...
The falling in love part is purely optional and is not an actual requirement for talking to or hanging out with me. If love should happen, then it happens, if it doesn’t it doesn’t. I just want you to know that I'm not necessarily looking for anything in particular. In short, I can be Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now, but most of all, I hope I can be someone you can trust and just enjoy being around.
I hope that makes sense.
I just wanted to make that clear!
I just want to meet someone I can hang out with.
Someone I can have fun with.
Someone I can explore life with by DOING lots of interesting stuff.
Stuff like going to the movies or going to a play, improv or any kind of live comedy (I love to laugh).
Or going to see some kind of musical talent.
Or just wandering around the city or the countryside.
I’m also great to haul out to the mall because I'm patient and my interest in art means that I can make a good critic when it comes to trying out new clothes.
In terms of food, I love to go out and eat at different restaurants. And from time to time I love just staying at home, to make dinner or desert, or to snuggle up with in front of the TV watching some show or a movie. Or we can forget the television and just concentrate on each other - talking and listening to what we have to say late into the night.
I'm looking for someone who just wants to do stuff... and who also likes to strike up conversation. I can talk a lot, but I can listen too. I'm always honest and every now and then I can even offer bits of insightful feedback.
I grew up in Williams Lake. I’ve been around horses, lakes and nature. I’m used to snow on the ground for six or seven months during the year. At 13 I moved to White Rock with my family when my Dad retired from medicine. Now, I live downtown ‘ in the city of Vancouver. But I still yearn for nature ‘ which is probably why I like capturing it through art.
Right now, I'm studying in school. I was working towards a bachelor of business administration in marketing but a few years ago I switched back to fine arts and I'm now completing a bachelor of fine arts in visual arts. I have a marketing management diploma, a business management certificate and I'm one course away from an associate of arts degree in creative writing. My interests in marketing and fine arts come from my need to be creative. I love to write, draw, paint with oils and take photographs and that's the focus of my study.
At university, I was involved in student politics. I sat on my University's Board of Governors and Education Council for a number of terms and I recently fought a group of corrupt students who took over my University's student union. Students were literally stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from students. The situation ended up in the Supreme Court of BC where the court called an election and I was talked into running again. So for a few terms I sat as my student union's Director of Finance.
So, in short, I hope my profile interests you and doesn't scare you away... if you feel it's too long or that you now know everything about me, well, I would argue that this profile doesn't even begin to scratch the surface... ;)
I hate first dates. But again, I'm easy to please - I'm open to doing anything.
I’m a big fan of spontaneity and living for the moment. But for those who like specifics, I can always go for a good movie anytime. Walking and talking is good too. Eating is good. But in the end, just being together is good - no matter what gets done. The romantic in me will probably buy you flowers at some point.
One first date I had consisted of biking the entire sea-wall, followed by a nice dinner at a local restaurant, and then going for a bit of a walk that turned into a drive out by UBC where we ended up finding a quiet place to park and just talked for a few hours.
Another first date consisted of attending an event I helped organize on campus, then going downtown for a walk followed by a game of bowling, dinner and a double bill at a local discount movie theatre.
