About Me
Oh angels of mercy
Deliver me,
From all these people, delirious
Who take this on-line stuff, way too serious.
All loyal, compassionate and trustworthy
All outgoing, sensitive and baggage-free,
Good heavens, if we were all like that
I would’ve found you,
And you would’ve found me.

Ladies, ladies, ladies!
The process of finding a man to be in your life, is actually supposed to be relatively pleasurable. Not an odious task. If even half of us were as good as we say we are, we’d all be Canada’s next top model [citizens]. A little honesty, a little levity, a little more information to help out us dim-witted men who can and actually do, manage to get beyond a lousy picture (they’re all lousy, it’s a resolution issue) and read your profile. I swear, some of us actually do, it’s true.

I believe you should get the good stuff and the bad. I'm not vying for sainthood; I have flaws. But if you get to the end of the profile and the thought "hey, better than most" crosses your mind; it's a place to start, cast a line in my direction.
The worst that can happen is we spend half an hour or less in decent conversation over a beverage.

But a little about me, would probably help some of you who need concrete information to decide.
First and foremost, I am a one woman man. I intend to find one great woman and leave these pages behind. I have always given, what I am told, are wonderfully warm hugs. As well, parts of me are French. The chivalrous parts. I am a passionate man and don't take relationships halfheartedly. I usually open doors for the woman I'm with, I like flowers and candles and Champagne, like to cuddle, hold hands and kiss in public – and kiss passionately in private. Maybe I should have put European as opposed to Caucasian, in the ethnicity field as that’s what my upbringing was. Maybe I should've figured out long before now where I could stick in that I was born in Montreal. That I grew up with a double helping of “joie de vivre” and a triple dose of “je ne sais quoi” that ensures my quiet yet undeniable presence in a room.

That being said, perhaps it would be more appropriate to admit to my flaws before we go forwards. So, apart from my rather dry sense of humour and typical male ability to open mouth and insert one or both feet; I have at least 5 flaws.
One: I have a high metabolic rate. This is a double flaw for some. First, because my weight hasn’t changed in a decade and I don’t ever have to fight it. It also means that I generate a lot of heat. Great in winter, but I still like to cuddle in summer.
Two: I’m a true foodie. This means I know good food and I cook very well because I like to eat good food. This can exacerbate flaw number one. If your scale and you are not on good terms, fear not; it’s a quality issue for me, not quantity. I don’t usually serve much at any given time.
Three: While I communicate well (for a man, my dear, communicate well for a man. You’re just much better at it than men are. But I’m working at it!) {Oh yeah, the flaw} I am very hard to read. Blame it on my atypical WASABI upbringing. This means that you won’t necessarily know by looking at me, you’ll likely have to ask. And so that you know, it doesn’t bother me, quite to the contrary, I fully endorse better communication. Please ask. I know there will be times when I will seek clarification on a topic. {I can honestly say that not much gets by me if it's stationary for long enough.}
Four: I don’t sweat the small stuff. The way the paper towel roll goes on, or the toothpaste tube gets rolled up as it gets used, or the kitchen utensils get hung up (mine hang on a rack behind my stove)…Life is too short, in my opinion, to get hung up on the small stuff.
Five: There is a fine line between persistent and stubborn. While I am a fairly persistent individual, occasionally I cross the line and fail to notice.

All that being said, to see if there truly is any chemistry between us, we actually have to meet. Long term email over many days or weeks, leading up to multiple phone calls over another extended period of time, is definitely not my style. To me, this is just another venue to establish personal contact. If I determine a valid reason for meeting you for a glass of something, I’ll likely suggest it in my second email. I have no interest in wasting your time and even less in wasting mine. I am willing to invest both time and effort in someone who has a genuine interest in meeting me for the right reasons. But just to give you a little more of my character, please continue…

I’m considered by most to be funny, thoughtful and a fairly good blend of left and right brained. Spiritual as opposed to religious. I’m the guy his friends, both male and female, come to for answers to difficult questions. Frequently those dealing with human interaction; so I guess I could say that I’m a people person. I’m quiet, fairly smart (once again, that’s relative. Einstein isn’t worried that I’m going to usurp his place in the pantheon of brainiacs, but I do know which end of a sharp knife to hold), soft spoken, honest in my opinions given, but outgoing and friendly.

I am told that my most striking features are ones I can’t get to show online. My green eyes, my wicked sense of humour and the type of personality which usually puts people at ease. I’m not one of those really high energy people, I’m more like the next level down. What most people consider a good blend of a type A and a type B personality. I gave up birthdays a long time ago, I consider myself to be 25 with two decades of practice. A man who smiles based on a wealth of experiences and, at the same time, with a twinkle in my green eyes; based upon an ability to laugh at myself and the humour inherent in life and what it throws at us. I’m intrinsically motivated so a firm believer in life-long learning, but at the same time, fairly laid back and easy going. Going out is great if you’re going somewhere interesting, but staying in with wonderful woman can be even more enchanting.

Divorced for about five years, I have two great kids whom I adore. A daughter, away in University and a teenage son whom, unfortunately, I only see part-time. They both love me and want me to find the ONE, for me. I wouldn't trade that kind of baggage for all the dark chocolate and champagne in France.

Living in the Yonge and Eglinton area of town (or Young and Eligible as it's nicknamed), I am afforded easy access to most parts of the city, so finding a good place to meet and talk almost anywhere in Toronto, won't be a problem. In the end, however, it’s up to you to decide. Till then,

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A quiet cafe or a jazz bar perhaps. If the weather is sunny and warm, maybe a walk along the boardwalk, or meander through the Distillery district. Something easy, low key, where we can talk and start to get to know one another.
