About Me
Smart but not a smartass, confident but not arrogant, having a plan but yet spontaneous, classy yet laid back, friendly but not a pushover, funny but not a clown, etc. etc... such a balancing act; it's a miracle anyone gets together. :)

I'm outgoing/gregarious. It seems that people are getting more insular (shy? reserved?) year after year, and it's getting harder to move past small talk. But if we all waited to be spoken to before we spoke, it'd be too quiet. :) Long story short, the smarter the other person is, the better the chemistry.

In the interests of saving time, I'm an atheist. Even if you're a liberal religious person, if you believe in any kind of deity, at best I'm going to feel sorry for you, and who wants that? If you have faith, then you deserve someone who can genuinely share it with you.

I grew up in Montreal, moved to Vancouver to get away from the referendum, then moved around finding work, and along with the studying, not too easy to settle down and find the right person.

I started as a commercial artist but now I mostly write software. Can't complain; I get paid well to do what I love. I've self-published two books (fiction) and I'm trying a novel next (more fiction). I like building things, things that last. When I write, I write the timeless story.

I love to travel but not by plane, so I tend to drive within Canada and the United States. Fortunately, these are big countries. :)

I'm trying to move closer to town; in the meantime I found a place only two minutes from the Skytrain.

I like personal growth, and thinking about things. Physics, metaphysics, philosophy, morality, free will, dreams, id/ego, etc. At the same time, I don't take things too seriously. My main feeling is that life has to be more about than just survival. I write poetry and songs now and then. Music is great, live music is even better. Nature walks, trips, painting, writing; it's all good. I want to share life with someone who is both lover and friend.

One mistake I've been making is giving new relationships the benefit of the doubt too long. At my age, people are pretty set in their ways. If small talk is your thing, it won't work out. I pursue personal growth, and I need the same from those close to me.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Sitting down in an off-hours cafe/restaurant or park. Someplace quiet where we can both talk and listen to each other. Experience has taught me that it's better to meet sooner than later.
