I am pretty much open to trying anything once and I like to be active with a busy schedule, although I do appreciate quiet evenings in as well. Too much idle time can make me feel a little stir crazy! I just (re)started an exercise program on July 13th, going to the gym Monday through Friday. Feeling good so far and enjoying the extra energy.
I am an easygoing man, with a sarcastic sense of humor and I call it like I see it. I enjoy going out as well as staying in. I'm of Irish descent, born and raised in Montreal - I moved to Toronto in 1993 and have been there ever since. I am currently living in Thornhill, a short walk from Yonge & Steeles. I also work from home full time, with trips to Washington, DC every quarter. Working from home gives me a pretty good quality of life and I love it! I do not have a car by choice, as I do not need one due to working from home full time. It would sit 6 days a week. If I need one, I can rent one or take a taxi. I definitely do not miss traffic and bad drivers, but I do enjoy road trips.
Some of my interests are music (classic and new rock mostly), movies, baseball, hockey, reading, traveling, scuba diving, computers, cooking and fine dining – both in and out. I also enjoy romantic weekend road trips with that special someone in my life. Nothing beats getting away for a while!
I believe in true love and that there is no figuring out what draws two people together. I know that I am most attracted to sparkling eyes, a great smile and someone I can talk with for hours and not notice the time. My other half is out there somewhere and I know she is looking for me - too bad it is taking us so long to find each other! I'm pretty open minded about life in general and I would like to find someone to share my life with and hopefully share in your life as well!
I am not into endless email exchanges and instant messenger conversations. Communication is much more than the spoken word - it is eye contact, facial expressions, listening and body language. We lose a lot typing words into a computer and even phone conversation lacks. There is just no substitute for a face to face meeting - it is magical when you find that connection with another person.
One question I am often asked is "What are you looking for". My answer is I hope I will know when I see it. The woman of my dreams is someone I want to be with as much as possible and someone I am proud of. Someone who is on my mind constantly when we are apart and makes me want to get home as soon as possible.
Anything else you wish to ask, feel free! I hope to meet you soon! I apologize for not answering all emails, but I do promise if I am interested, you will get a response. Please have a photo posted or send one with your message or I likely will not reply.
For me, an ideal first date would be a nice dinner with great company, soft music, a bottle of wine and conversation that flows so much that we forget all about time! In the end, it is all about the company and not so much the date itself.
A nice long walk with a coffee is also a nice way to spend an hour!
