Hello ladies, I asked a confidant how they'd describe me, and they said, "A wonderful combination of street smarts and wit, very easy going, voice of reason, authentic - An overall well rounded man who doesn't take himself too seriously." Apparently I'm one of the few who actually goes through someone's profile before introducing myself.
I adore deep conversation where you connect on multiple levels, I enjoy diy stuff, and I've been told that I provide a wonderful feeling of comfort when cuddling - I guess you could say that I'm great with my hands ;-). I also find painting, writing, brain storming with peers, photography, and other creative endeavors therapeutic.. my creative juices usually flow at night as I'm nocturnal.
I'm 2nd generation Vancouverite. I've been caught in a few storm's, literally and figuratively, and I look at the best in every situation and my positive attitude is contagious. I adore playing with my niece's, and watching them burn off their excess energies playing amongst themselves, but I don't have any little one's of my own. Photography, being out in nature, and fly fishing are usually how I disconnect & reset. I thrive on camaraderie, belly laughs, and interesting stories. As an artist who got into business I appreciate how different minds work.
I'm a decent cook and like to BBQ year round.. maybe we can make dinner together sometime? I also enjoy driving and I must be pretty good at it since my friends have asked me to show them things behind the wheel, and I always have the music on when I'm on the road. I mostly listen to classic rock (Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, GnR, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Genesis, The Police, Eagles... it's all good), and I also enjoy jazz, world music...
What sets me apart? Well, to start, I don't smoke anything, or drink any alcohol, and I don't touch illicit drugs. Also, I don't watch much tv, and I'm not into gaming. I definitely prefer the personal touch of hearing a voice and having a proper conversation over text-messaging.
There's much more to you and I than can be written in this box. I'm not interested in a pen pal. I'm looking to connect, talk on the phone, meeting face to face sooner than later, and forging a relationship if we click - hopefully a long term one as I am not looking for friends with benefits or a one night stand. Please, don't be apprehensive... drop me a line if you're still reading this :)
ps - I don't bother with IM.. my computer doesn't jive with it.
