Although I am a little shy at first, I have a good sense of humor and I like to pick my spots for best effect when making people laugh. I enjoy reading, rollerblading, camping, basically just getting out of the house. I'm always interested in trying something new. I'm a hockey fan, but I don't follow it as closely as I used to.
I like to cook, and it's fun to try and experiment with inventing new recipes or alter an already good recipe to make it my own. I love to have friends over to share my kitchen with, because nothing beats a homemade dinner with your friends.
I like animals, especially dogs, even though I am allergic to most of them.
I like a pretty wide variety of music depending on my mood, primarily rock. My favorite bands are the Beastie Boys, Metric, Weezer, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Queen.
A good first date for me is one where we could start to get to know each other while doing something fun, although I would also love to just buy you a coffee if that is the type of thing you are into. I kind of dislike dinner and a movie style dates at first, I feel they don't really allow you to get to know a person.
