Although I am not religious I am honest and very faithful to the woman I love. To me cultures are like food. Every cultures food has something good that you like and foods you don't. No one cultures' food is the perfect one. Most important fact at this point in my life, so read carefully and to those who look further into my profile and want to know me more, know that I am man that totally commits' and devotes himself to his woman. I am divorced this year – separated for 2 years (actually could be said longer than that). • I am 57 years old, 5’ 5” tall, brown hair and eyes, slim build, and healthy. • I did have open heart surgery to repair a torn Mitral valve – fortunate for me I had enough flesh around the valve that the surgeon was able to use it, so I have my own valve and not a mechanical one. I will say that I am grateful that my ex-wife was there during this part in my life. My mother and brothers would have stepped up otherwise, but still she could have just vanished. • I have a beautiful son (I tell my colleagues that he is a chic magnet – all the women want to hug him and have him around and they total ignore me like I do not exist – haha, I hope he can have the same effect when he is older). He is currently 7 years old and lives with me. So, this may be the most critical part for some women out there. • After the divorce we paid off all our debts and there is nothing left. I am starting over. All I have to my name is: o an empty bank account (which I am working on building up again) o a car o several tools o a comic book collection (haha, yes there may still be a little bit of child in me – but I am looking to sell most of this collection – not worth much, so should unburden myself of most of it) o my health o a good job - 20 years with this company, working various positions from maintenance helper to Maintenance Manager to Senior Property Manager to Building and Asset Manager and now as the Director of IT o the most invaluable person in my life, my son o Also, my two best friends (who happen to be sisters (Suzanna & Lulu) from Beijing) and their families. We have been friends for 20 years and roommates for 10 years. I cherish every moment with them!

Hello! Well here we all are, curiously believing that somewhere out there is the true thing. Well, the following will probably convince you that I am not the one, but who knows! Originally form Spain, with some English roots. A strong longing for space and nature eventually took me and my young family to Canada. That was 14 years ago now. Life happens and marriages break. I've been alone for the last 5 years, except for my teenage daughter that spends at least half her time with me. She is growing up fast, and it won't be long until she is too busy to spend time with me. She doesn't know I'm on dating sites (I don't think), and she will be upset once she finds out. And she will not like you. She is a lovely caring person and can't help a little jealousy. Perhaps once she finds a boyfriend herself she will be more tolerant towards my own hopes. She is a bright, artistic and creative person. And my son, a kind and caring young man in his early twenties now, has been living in Spain for a couple of years. Most of my family are in Spain, and I go over to visit every other year or so. I would describe myself as kind, excessively gentle and out of synch with the world, which makes me love the solitude of nature as a less painful loneliness than that of being surrounded with well intentioned but incompatible people. I will hope you are always by my side for social events, and will probably disappoint you from time to time for not wanting to go to social events... Inoffensive, very honest and loyal. Ambitious, but not for career or experiences, but rather for time and space. I will often upset you by this need for solitude if, when I sometimes retreat even from you, you interpret it as fading love. Yet I will love you intensely, even when I seem distant. I will not show my love for you in public (unless I sense that you long for the display, and I will try against my instinct. This will likely not end well). I have a need for sadness that I satisfy with music, or movies (or both), and enjoy sad, tragic stories. Yet I think family and close friends will present me as very funny (quirky humour) and playful (I tend to prefer to interact socially by playing games). I enjoy comedies, and romantic comedies. I have a lot of admiration for Billy Connolly as a standup comedian, and enjoy Michael McIntire (I especially like the fact that he rarely criticises in his humor). I do laugh a lot, enjoying almost all humour. Especially some internet stuff!! Yet I will always retreat and return to my loneliness and sadness. I don't like to much happiness... Well if you are not convinced that I am some sort of psycho in disguise yet, you might want to ask your friends for help (although I personally don't think I am one). I will love listening to you when you come home and tell me all about your day, but will often say little in return. Sometimes my lack of communicating might upset you. I will see and feel your love just by body language, I have no need for constant communication for reassurance, and will be a poor parter to you if you do need it. A true honest smile of happiness, a sincere embrace when we see each other is more real to me than any words. Films: - What's Eating Gilbert Grape - Song Of The Sea - Grave Of The Fireflies - The Princess Bride - Social realism such as Ken Loach's movies -... Music is very important to me: - Clannad - Eminem - The Cranberries - Sad classical - Dire Straights - Manu Chao - Dead Can Dance - Dark techno - ... I regularly bash on a piano for my own satisfaction and love it, but I don't think I can call it playing... From a philosophy standpoint, I almost completely agree with Khalil Gibran's outlook. I love his work. I live on a nice plot of land outside a small city an hour flight from Vancouver (or a beautiful 8 hour drive), in and old little house that I am slowly renovating. Beautiful open British Columbia, full of trees and rivers, where I occasionally meet moose, deer, bear and many other fellows and I still feel honoured every time it happens (you will tire of me pointing them out to you!). The weather is spectacular; Spring always reveals itself as a desolate and unsightly brown landscape crushed flat by the weight of winter, but also vigorously exciting. As the snow melts, you can feel and hear ever increasing water trickles and streams, which will grow into raging rivers by the end of May, and you can sense the tension of life awakening in a slow burst of green. The winter silence is gone, birds will sing loudly. And the aroma of earth and vegetation slowly returns. We often have nice sunny days, but we also see stately storms passing by in the distance, with blurry gray skirts of rainfall below and the thick clouds above shining white and orange. Summer is greeted with an exuberance of green and flowers, often hot sunny days that call for a swim or canoe paddle in a river or lake, sometimes with passing thunderstorms that break the monotony. Autumn is my favourite season, with its slow, beautiful decline into amazing colors, fresh breezes, golden leaves flying, cloudy skies and a feeling of longing and melancholy. The most beautiful season, with sunsets that never fail to touch you. Finally comes the feared winter, a season for those seeking solitude and beauty. Snow comes and inexorably accumulates, sometimes in storms, sometimes in delicate showers. The landscape becomes a white wonderland, still and silent. The trees often struggling to hold all the snow, and sunsets of pink and purple that contrast between the snowy blanket shimmering blue and the dark grey sky. Sometimes we have weeks of bitter cold that only the brave will face outdoors. Harsh and beautiful. I am not discarding the possibility of relocating to your location, although it will take time. And I am currently in an ideal location anyway. But once I fall in love I will go off to find you wherever. If only you liked it here as much as I do... Congratulations!! You have now completed your mini-course on how to identify weirdo's!

 My name is Jim. I am a sincere, uncomplicated guy who holds himself to the highest standard of accountability and integrity. I am energetic and definitely a glass half full type guy! I consider myself being extremely open minded, romantic at heart and appreciate a sense of humour. Although born and raised in Canada, my business career involved me working extensively throughout Asia and Europe the majority of my life which is why I’ve never married. Living and working abroad opened my mind to being tolerant, patient and understand allowing me the ability to appreciate the qualities and differences in people and culture throughout the world. The most valuable quality learned from my overseas experience is how character building and influential living and working abroad has benefited me as an individual on so many levels and how wonderfully life fulfilling my life is. I enjoy cooking and baking a wide variety of fine, well balanced food. My favourite food includes a variety of Chinese dishes, Mediterranean, French and Italian dishes although, I’d have to say Cantonese is my most favourite. I am not intimidated by taking on culinary challenges associated with preparing any variety of food especially Asian dishes in fact, I quite enjoy it. Suffice it to say, I’m not a meat and potatoes type guy and my spice rack consists of several spices besides salt and pepper hahahaha. I have learned food is a very integral aspect of a relationship. It would be wonderful to share and exchange each other’s ideas as well as our favourite dishes together. My fitness hobbies include ice skating and ice hockey as well as bike riding. Covid has restricted my playing hockey however, I am able to enjoy 50-60km bike rides. I hope you enjoy bike riding as well. I am a romantic at heart and can only hope you have a sense of romance with you also. I look forward to learning your likes, dislikes and routine. I wake up happy every morning and look forward to bringing you warm water the moment you open your eyes and hope you really enjoy coffee to follow. I am not perfect and do not expect perfection in you. I look forward to learning, understanding, respecting and loving your imperfections. I anticipate being a compliment to one another and enriching each other's lives and hopefully, being able to sharing and realizing each other's dreams and aspirations together. In every relationship there are differences and moments of conflict however, I believe it is important to respect our differences and celebrate our similarities and search for ears of agreement because we love each other. I laugh when I read how a person wants to change another person for the better!!! Please understand a leopard never changes their spots! I look forward to hearing from you.  Cheers. Jimmy

Mar. 2022 update -- find it necessary to say "you will need a passport" my intent is to eventually live in two countries (as long as 2nd one is warm in winter) ... If you are not willing to use video, it will not work, I have already waisted a lot of time only to find too many on here are not honest. skype id keith.coxon001 “ Rancher, not into big city living. Very busy, close to a workaholic, but do like quiet sandy beaches with palm trees for shade in the wintertime. Family is important !!! Do not smoke. Educated, but prefer life's quiet self learned lessons. I am country but not a redneck by todays definition. ie. I prefer new blue jeans to a suit. I would rather BBQ a good steak at home than spend $60.00 for a hunk of leather. soft spoken, glad to let others talk, but, if you want to know just ask. I do drive a pick-up but it is neither jacked up or loud. Not a couch potato, watch the news, Yes I can cook. even though the knobs on the stove do not look like the one's on the BBQ. I tend to be a bit old fashioned, fair is fair. everyone is equal. I never get mad, but god help you if you kick a puppy, are mean to a child or hit a lady. Opening a door is a sign of respect not belittlement. (was told I need to edit the above - I am NOT old fashioned, act, look, and feel way younger than birth cert. says.) And finally (I promise) A beautiful Storm blew across my path, enveloped me. drew me in. and took my breath away. A hurricane not to be tamed, a chinook to keep me warm. I WANT to be lost in a perfect storm!!!

Vancouver has been ranked as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

There's a unique magic in the ordinary, and I hope to share that magic with someone special. My Personality: Above all, I am easy-going and down-to-earth.

Someone who enjoys exploring the outdoors, has an inquisitive mind, and takes pleasure in heartfelt conversations. Honesty and authenticity are paramount to me, as I believe in the strength of genuine connections.
