Well now, guess I should start by introducing myself. Moved back to Nova Scotia after being away for about 20 years (took a long time to tunnel out and escape – kidding). Single/never married, very independent. Non-smoker/drug user, Have many interests and hobbies (maybe too many, but hey it keeps life interesting). Music is my biggest interest – everything from jazz to progressive rock, classical to 80’s new wave. Enjoy being outdoors, hiking, kayaking. Fall is my favorite time of year. Curious about people, cultures, places. Don’t like cats, prefer dogs, so if you live in a house full of cats good chance we are not a match.
So now the hard part – who would I like to meet? I really don’t have a particular type, every person has their own unique qualities that make them interesting. Non-smoker, non-recreational drug user or heavy drinker. Must be single (surprising how important it is to state that here), not "it's complicated", or recently separated. Honest, i.e. if you checked that you are neither a smoker or drug user then start talking about how much you enjoy smoking pot…guess what! Someone who enjoys outdoor activities and is not physically attached to their cell phone 24/7. Someone who prefers to live reality rather than watch it on TV.
If you are still reading and think we might have a connection, give me a shout. But please, something more than just “wuz up” or “hey”. Not interested in a one-sided conversation.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Conversation.....now there's a novel idea! Sorry for the sarcasm but one word emails seem to be the norm here. The ability to have a real conversation seems to be a casualty of the texting trend. What do you you like to do for fun in your off time? What music do you like to listen to? Do you have a hobby? If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be....on second thought, never mind that one :)
First date? I like the idea of a casual "meet-and-greet" first and then after getting to know a bit more about each other it's much easier to plan a real date. Sometimes the image you get from reading a profile is not the same when you meet in person. So awkward when you try to impress a lady by taking her to McDonald's for your first date and she tells you she is afraid of clowns and runs away! (kidding by the way)
