Aaron

Age: 36

Occupation: Biology Teacher

Hometown: North Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada

Do you like to go out dancing? If yes, what is your preferred type of dancing?
No. Unfortunately I am rather shy when it comes to that. I'm pretty good at bobbing my head to the beat while sitting though!

Describe your idea of the ultimate date?
I've been on dates in a variety of settings but very few of them (if any) had conversation that was stimulating, funny, thought provoking, etc. all rolled into one. I guess what I am saying is its the person I'm with more than the activity of the date that really determines if it is an ultimate date or not.

Do you prefer a woman who wants to be pursued or a woman who pursues you and why?
Because I am relatively shy on making that initial contact, I love it when a woman pursues me. It shows confidence and that she's not your average woman. Hot.

What is the trait you most dislike in yourself?
Sometimes I prepare too much for the future and don't live enough for today when I can enjoy it most. Who knows if I will be here tomorrow!

A picture of my mom so I can keep fighting, a knife, and duct tape (that stuff always comes in handy!).

Do you prefer "hot spot" type clubs or low-key bars and why?
Depends on the night - if I'm celebrating I like to go big, but otherwise low key nights are a blast.

Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Yeah - my mom always says that a good man provides for his family, but a better man makes his girl fall in love with him every single day.

What super power would you choose to have? Why?
See the future so I can change it!
