Picture a small candle in a dark room. You hardly notice it at first. Then you see - tiny bursts of illumination flicker and jump into the murk. The little flame pulsates in a kind of shimmering dance. Quick and fleeting, bursts of bright sparkle flash upward, then dwindle to a glimmer on a fading, orange wick. The darkness is oppressive. The blinking, wavering light barely registers against the engulfing shadow. It would be so easy for the candle to go out; to be smothered by the gloom. But the little candle does not go out. It shines on. It is stubborn. Its tiny flame ebbs and glows in the stifling black to the point of suffocation, yet it remains. It endures. The little candle will not go out because its light is love. Its light is hope. It is the light of joy, of caring, of yearning, desire, and dreams. It is the light of life. Sometimes I feel like that candle. Life is uniquely challenging when you are single. It can be tempting to give in to cynicism and isolation. But I don’t think people are made this way – not for a lifetime. Certainly, I am not made this way. I am ready to share life and living with a special woman. For many years I focused on work, and I had one failed marriage. But I don’t want to be the little candle in a dark room. I want to share the light. I am looking for an LTR, as they say; a partnership based on love, respect, and mutual admiration. I feel strongly that couples in a committed relationship should be best friends as well as lovers and companions. I also believe that communication is extremely important. Many men are poor communicators, but I think I am an exception. In the past I worked as an artist, an actor, a writer, and now I am an English teacher. All my professional activities have been about effective communication in one way or another. In my view, other important words that help a relationship succeed are: patience, equality, flexibility, honor, intimacy, trust, and fun. Friends and colleagues would probably describe me as smart, funny, sensitive, creative, articulate, loyal, hard-working, and sincere. I have a big heart and a wry sense of humor, with sweet and silly aspects to my character too. I enjoy books, films, music, conversation, long walks, going to the gym (though I’m not fanatical about exercise), as well a calm and happy home life. Intellectual pursuits appeal to me a lot due to my work in education. But I can also sit back and laugh out loud at a crazy, funny movie. Overall, I like to consider myself a gentleman and a gentle man. Honestly, I am drawn to Asian ladies generally because they often offer an attractive combination of character depth and sensitivity; at once tender yet strong. Of course, the individual personality of each lady is what matters most. Additionally, I find the idea of cultural diversity and exchange in a romance interesting, stimulating. Differences can be considered assets instead of liabilities. Open-mindedness is the key. I was born and raised in Ottawa Canada but have lived elsewhere for studies and work including Toronto and San Francisco. I enjoy travelling and have been to Russia, Ukraine, Israel, and many US cities such as Los Angeles, New York, and Washington D.C. I particularly want to visit China one day – especially Beijing. I find Chinese culture very interesting. So? If my profile has captured your interest, I would be pleased to hear from you. Is your heart open? Are you mindful, awake, and ready for a meaningful connection? For something different? Are you ready to try? As I tell my students, “Push your comfort zone. History does not remember those who were afraid to take a chance.” Yes - picture a small candle in a dark room. Maybe if we match your little candle with mine, we can light up that room and chase the shadows away :)

I moved to Toronto from Northern California where I was launching a candy company. Sadly, it did not fly and I had to "hang up the spurs" - the silver lining, if there is any, is that I am the proud owner of literally hundreds and hundreds of pounds of lollipops. Want free candy? I'm the friend for you. Want to make a weird German-esque art video with a jacuzzi filled with rooster shaped lollipops? Let's get started! In better news i recently nailed a gig that allows me to write full-time, something I've always wanted to do, (but instead mostly bar tended), so I'm decidedly more fhuk yeah as of late. Truly a large improvement from the video game and redtube diet I was on pre-writing job. Also: I have a soft spot for sci fi, particularly the works of Welles, Bradbury, and Asimov. If video game skills gave a fella sex appeal, Ryan Gosling and I would be comparable. I love animals and was that annoying kid who was always spewing out animal facts. Been wearing animal shirts since before they were cool, and you may hear me argue that I was that very trend setter. I have a brother and sister cat, Riggs and Carmen, they cool. If you have space on a farm that I could use I'd also like to get a dog, pig, goat, and a de-scented skunk. I enjoy the odd game of cards. Want to learn poker? I'll teach you, we can start using starburst candies as chips and work our way up to tacos. I have Dad humor. Worse still, I love explaining jokes that miss their mark to people because, I don't know? I'm lucky to have a great group of friends scattered behind me and me being away from them makes me miss them buckets -would love to make friends of equal value here, and sheeeeeit, if luck smiles maybe I'll get a gaming/hiking/exploring partner out of the deal at the very least. Presently about to move to China to write course ware for an education board.

Hi--how is the fishing? What I want is simple...I want a best friend that I have lots in common with who I hopefully have that fantastic chemistry with. I want us to be excited to spend time together. Attractiveness, intelligence and a kind grateful positive spirit are all equally important to me. I never really believed in opposites attract. If we do not like any of the same things how can we have great conversation? How can we truly enjoy sharing time together? I want more than a physical attraction...but I definitely need that too. I am not really a big fan of the destiny or the soul mate thing--what? I get hit by a bus today--my one and only other half out there is out of luck... I think that there could be thousands of people in the world that we could really match up well with, but finding them amongst the billions is not that easy and timing is important too. I am a romantic--I love the idea that there is that one special person out their searching for me as I search for them and we meet and fall hopelessly in love and everything is perfect from their forward...but...hard to believe. Dating, at times, can be almost tedious but if you don't put yourself out there than what--sit at home and order pizza and hope the delivery person is that special someone you could build a life with? Most good things in life come if you work for them and I think that working at finding someone special is worth the time. I have heard it said that when you stop looking that is when 'love' will find you. I am sure it happens. In life there is little evidence that good things come from putting in little effort. You are worth finding. I will put in time to finding someone special, that best friend to build a life with. Just some thoughts...anyway about me. Sense of humour is a must...I need to be able to laugh at myself and life on this terrific journey I am grateful! I am positive...i expect the best from life! I am very creative. My ultimate goal is to write mystery and thriller novels...but the starving artist thing does not work for me so have put my creative talents to work in business, sales, marketing and advertising. Writing is something I want pursue more over time. I am attractive. I can look equally good in a suit or a pair of short I am self aware and I am always looking to grow and learn from anyone and everyone. I am intelligent, passionate, compassionate, and kind. How we treat others is important. Kindness "IS" important. I love life and I am very positive and optimistic. Spiritual growth is important to me. Currently Deepak Chopera and Eckhart Tolle are my two favourite teachers/writers. I enjoy conversation. I am interested in life in general and specifically, spirituality, philosophy, psychology, quantam physics, and more. I love conversation from the silly to the deep. I appreciate people who have given life a little thought. I can be child like, or a serious business man, depending on the circumstance. I am well spoken and very quick minded (I am also on sale for 50% off this week) I hate reading my profile--it feels stale--had to had lighten it up. You are very attractive, slim, petite, fit, or athletic. I am not attracted to overweight. It takes dicipline on my part to stay in shape and I am attracted to the same. You are classy and feminine, but still you have a mind and are not afraid to use it. You are passionate and compassionate. You can be religious but not a fanatic. You are positive and grateful about what life has offered you. You expect the best from life. If you are into fitness and are business oriented, in addition to the above, that is all the better, but neither is a deal breaker... I am ready to build a life with one person. Life is a wonderful mystery and I am looking for my best friend to explore it. And by best friend I mean you are my first confidante. I have other friends, but you will always come first. You know, life is a wonderful journey, most of the time. There is something about seeing the smile of someone you care about, seeing life through their eyes, that just makes being alive that much better.

I am a simple man in many ways Something as simple as making dinner together , something so simple but to me something beautiful and romantic too Simple pleasures make me happy send e male add. ! And cuddling Holding your hand , whenever we walk together. Just a simple loving touch or soft kiss Knowing , your smiling because of something I said or did for you , will make me happy Romance can be simple too, little loves notes for you to find, making us a candle light dinner. I am a great cook !! Surprising you with little gifts , that I picked along my travels because I was thinking of you, and I would know there would be a moment , when you needed to be reminded how special you are and how important your are to my life I can see beauty in life and in people who think they are not. I do not understand why it has been so hard to find a woman who will accept me for the man I am and for my virtues and my faults. Been with women who say I Love You now will you change into my dream version of the man I want or what I think you should be If a woman says she loves me ,you should accept me for the man I am,,agree?? Why do woman want me to change? into a man they think they want ?? Instead of loving and accepting me for who I am This is life not a fairy tale. I am not a bad man but, I met many women it seems that is a quality they like in their men. I am not sure where nice guys get this reputation of being boring and not fun. I am solid and my word and integrity is very important. My faith and Love for God will not let me be otherwise. I am also young at heart and the way I think is young too. I am a man with a little boy inside , who is playful,fun and sometimes naughty In mischievous flirty kind of way, with my lady. I am also all man , when its needed, and wanted When I use the words my lady ,my woman " mine Its not about ownership I say mine , because I want no other and because I am yours too Someday , maybe you will be mine and I will be so honored and proudly be yours.
