So what to say about me? Well, I'm a fun-loving, straightforward kind of guy from up island, who settled in Victoria after coming here for school and never looked back. I work for the BC government and really enjoy what I do; it's safe to say I'm fairly motivated. I'm definitely more of a glass-half-full kind of person; I believe we make your own luck and happiness is really more like something you share than something you collect. It's important to make the most of your opportunities and surround yourself with positive people! You gotta keep your friends and family tight.
The kind of things I love: burning through a page-turner on a rainy Sunday morning, catching a Royals game with my buddies, wandering through museums, seeing stand-up comedy, taking in the view as I sweat my *** off during a tough run along Dallas Road. Periodically killing off poor and innocent houseplants (RIP, Hermann). Watching nature docs or even (gasp!) venturing into the great outdoors myself. Occasionally having a couple drinks and a wicked DJ make me forget what a terrifying experience it is for people to see me dance in public, hahaha.
While I really enjoy my work, the kind of things I live for are hanging around a roaring campfire with my friends, the smell of the forest after a good rain, watching gritty dramas like The Wire, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead, experimenting in the kitchen with what's at hand (Perogies in a stir fry? Get the duck out of town...), plucking out a new tune on my guitar, or stepping off the plane with my backpack in a country I’ve never seen before. Italy was a real eye-opener for me! I'd love to meet someone who'd like to plan a few more adventures overseas together.
Now my reading list is where I let my nerd flag fly free: I read a ton of stuff, from ancient and medieval history to books on evolution and space, politics and archaeology, as well as fantasy and sci fi. It's a toss-up between my favourite authors: George R.R. Martin, Robert Heinlein, and Conn Iggulden. I think one of the best ways to get to know someone is to check out their... bookcase. ;) Yeppp... I know that was lame and I do not care. lol
Anyways, I’m on the lookout for a girl who is genuine, fun-loving, passionate about what she does, adventurous and funny... someone who has it more or less together, you know? I also have a soft spot in my heart for shameless flirts! So feel free to shoot me a message... I'd love to hear from you.
