Like most people.. long story getting here. Hmmmm.. Small town up bringing ( northern New Brunswick).. big city formative ( Toronto ages 18-28 ) lots of travel (45?? countries) 2 degrees (Arts. Education) 2 diplomas ( Fine Arts/ Theater and Home Reno Tech). Some foreign work.. Austria, Hong Kong, Malaysia.

Kicked the can as an independent writer/ director/ producer of theater/ film/ video for years. But paid the bills for many more years doing construction and home reno work. Many gigs as a teacher (Acting classes, English Second Language) Been an auto worker with Chrysler since 2005.

Trained as an actor out of high school ( class of '79) and generally followed a humanities path after that. I find the world can be overwhelmingly cruel at times but overall.. I like people.

Davekp comments on Jan 8, 2019:
I do think this is a method used. There is zero respect involved but I suppose when you look at it dating sites are just another form of billboard advertising. And in this case you've advertised yourself as a.. ummm.. fish. How much respect should one expect as a fish? lol I should add.. the "you" I refer to is a univeral "you".. not you specifically.

Davekp comments on Jan 8, 2019:
A little simplistic in it's analysis of the stereo typical childhood experiences and how they relate to partner choices as an adult but an interesting video none the less. That said.. I do feel I am attracted to a certain type of personality. And where I do agree with the video is in that what I am attracted to will, in the long run, have it's share of negative challenges. But is that personality that of my mother or father or childhood caregiver? Not really.. The important take away, for me, from this information is the notion of being "compelled"..( understanding your partner type compulsions can be as difficult as dealing with addictions) but dealing with those choices as an adult. Being mature enough to recognize when the difficulty is up to the other to ultimately solve. Thanks for the post.
What do you attract?

[themighty.com] Harmful Comments Said to People with Anxiety
Davekp comments on Jan 4, 2019:
I have found the best way to avoid receiving unwanted advice from people who are, in their heart of hearts, well meaning is to just not involve them in my situation. When I confide in people who don't have training or skills to deal with my issues I am putting them at a disadvantage. They are only doing what they assume is the right thing to do.. trying to "fix" things. If I don't want to illicit an opinion.. I don't involve them. And to be fair.. they don't generally ask me how my anxiety is.. it's my choice to put my deal on their plate. As difficult as it is at times I keep it to myself until I am speaking with someone who understands what mental health support is.

This article is invaluable if you or anyone you know suffers with depression. [theguardian.com]
Davekp comments on Jan 3, 2019:
Great article. I think it's important to remember that each mental health scenario is completely unique to the individual experiencing it. Lumping anything into one solution.. say big pharma is the answer to all depression is ludicrous. Self awareness and reflection is so often the key to beginning to understand personal problems.

Davekp comments on Jan 2, 2019:
Political stripes are a fleeting fashion and legislation and regulation come and go with the swing of he pendulum What's most important to me is that election results are accepted and power is transitioned civilly after votes are counted. Nothing is ever a sure thing but in western democracies (and Canada in particular) we seem to at least have enshrined a certain code of human rights that has become a base standard or foundation. The abortion issue not withstanding, we, as a society, seem to have come to an understanding as to unacceptable treatment of the "other". While I view conservative political ideology to be an overall detriment to a healthy, happy society.. you can't have pretty without having ugly... Scheer and Kenney are just our current pretty ugly Conservative children. But both are lightweight threats compared to Fucking Harper Fuck.. ( sorry.. I had to let that out.. still can't say his name without it. ) Canada, as a whole, eventually stood up to his horrid, horrid lack of humanity. We tolerated and persevered. We are stronger for having suffered his tenure. We will be fine. Thanks for the post! :)
