Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Aaron. Australian. Hella dreamy. Analytic. Creative.
Empathetic. Aware. Appreciative. SMART. Convicted enough to use
adjectives like this about myself.
Also not remotely interested in the run-o-the-mill "Gay Scene",
because I think it turns being a trainwreck into a cultural norm.
I'm a naughty little rebel in so many ways... but I'm a healthy
one. I don't like open relationships, I don't cheat, I avoid
unnecessary interpersonal drama, I don't like sex in toilets with
men I've never talked to... you know, that sort of thing. So I
would ideally like to find a man who is similar, but I shan't hold
my breath because most gay men I meet seem wired to avoid
Anyhooooo... on a considerably lighter note, I'm in New York and
San Fran in July/Aug for a spot of travel and am currently chatting
with guys in the area - just to see what's out there, and to maybe
have an interesting dinner or whatever (who knows?!) with a
foreigner. I can't stick around and be your boo - but if you're up
for a drink with a tall, dark and handsome Aussie, and you wanna
show me something cool about your city... or even if you just have
some tips and don't mind a little online chat... say hi :)
Alternatively, you can completely ignore me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've spent most of my adult life in Sydney, but a year ago, I left
both my home and the advertising industry (ugh), and basically did
the whole sea change thing - moving to the quieter Newcastle coast
where I manage the international division for the local university.
I'm enjoying not feeling like I have to dress up to buy a carton of
milk, I've stopped being a shallow gym bunny (I take care of
myself, but I don't have conversations about which protein shake I
drink), and I very much like being connected to nature (I live two
blocks from the ocean and love it). I do miss lots of things about
big city life; but over all, it was a good idea. I've signed a
contract till December, so... here I stay for now. But I'll
probably move to a Big City again when this runs out (I'm actually
thinking about seeing if can do a proper stint in NY, which is
kinda why I'm checking it out).
I'm also very active in creative projects outside of my main work.
At the end of the day, I'm a writer. I also make music and DJ. And
I've been lucky enough to be able to do all these professionally;
but neither are they confined to my career. And while I have a
pretty good job, I clash with people who hang their entire identity
upon their business card. I know a lot of successful people who are
really quite painful, and I know a lot of waiters who are beautiful
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmmmm.... making nachos... also, that bit in trivia where you have
to guess the song they're playing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Judging on what people are prepared to give back to me... that I'm
tall... my eyes are BLUE (because, you know, I've never
realised?!)... and that I'm not afraid to say what I think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

"Come on over here,
Let me have a try..."
(Kasper Bjorke - Deep Is The Breath)
some music I like on spotify
Film... David Lynch (especially Lost Highway and Mulholland
Drive)... Christopher Guest (especially Best In Show and Waiting
For Guffman)... Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct *drool*)... Lars Von
Trier (I have a little dark side, I suppose).
Books... I tend to read non-fiction, these days. Though I recently
put JK Rowling's "A Casual Vacancy" on my kindle and, much to my
surprise, really loved it.
Food... I love anything Mexican, a good gourmet pizza, a German
schnitzel drowning in cream, and espresso martinis. In no
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Creativity... the ocean... love... my cats... violins
(they melt me).... and.... um....
rollercoasters (part of my upcoming trip will be a weekend at Cedar
Point - I might be killed by rednecks, but dammit, I will have
ridden some nasty ass machines).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking. About lots of things. And feeling.
Thinking and feeling, really.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Tired from work. But I'm lots of fun on Saturdays!
