Hey SeXXXy!!!!!!

I am 22, I go to college in London Ontario for Marketing and I live in Stratford. I love hockey, going to the bars with the guys and playing pool. Not really sure what else to say so I will leave it at that :-)

Gee, this guy has all the qualities we gals looks for in a man - sounds like a real winner. Watch out girls, I saw him first!

Nice guy looking for a nice girl

I a genuinely open and friendly guy, hard to come by these days. I like to spend time around friends, and always love to meet new people. I like to keep myself busy, can't stand sitting around doing nothing.

Not exactly bad, but it doesn't contain enough information to make you want to email him. Hopefully his pictures is worth a thousand words (-:

FREAK! Or someone like that...me I guess. COME ON! LOOK HERE!!!

Snuggly guy, 6'2", 165 lbs. Just moved to Vancouver, looking for friends and people to show me around the city. Is that you? Are you sure? I am pretty weird...ok then. :)

Probably a very nice guy - but why risk it.

People not well versed in the English language should get someone else to write for them. Hard to read profiles with tons of spelling mistakes look BAD. Remember, always use the spell checker before posting your ad.
