sense of humour is a must
healthy (hate the gym but still go due to my weakness for chocolate)
love challenges & never afraid of change
Sincerely feel that life is so damn short so you really have to make the most of it. Precisely why I AVOID video games, drugs, shopping malls, nightclubs, Foxtel, mainstream mush, etc...
Much rather be traveling, exploring different places/cultures/customs /cuisines, enjoying quality time with family & friends, discovering new things, be outdoors, prefer progressive change to conservative comforts.
In regards to this dating fiasco, I feel that friendship is first & foremost.
Only time will truly tell what will happen.
Rome wasn't built in a day.
If the friendship blossoms into something deeper, then I am definitely "ready, willing and able" to take that next step.
Who in the world would not want to find their "soul mate"?
Life is far too precious to take this short journey solo.
The 3 most admirable traits in my world are empathy, imagination/creativity and compassion.
Finding hope in a hopeless situation
Also a jack of all trades kind of guy...
Some of my fav films:
Jean De Florette, Annie Hall, Sideways, Betty Blue, Braveheart, Little Miss Sunshine, American Beauty, Tampopo, Star Wars, Juno, Boogie Nights, Swept Away (the original Italian film, not the Madonna/Guy Ricthie disaster), Raising Arizona, The Exorcist, My Life as a Dog, Y Tu Mama Tambien, The World According To Garp, Dances With Wolves and Delicatessen.
TV: Game Of Thrones, Vikings, documentaries, TED, Dragon's Den, Whose Line Is It Anyway, Walking Dead, Louis Theroux, Q&A, the SBS news and Hi 5 (only kidding).
I am an ABC & SBS kind of chap.
Food: love international diverse cuisines. Like it spicy...
Seafood is the ultimate for me.
Mango is my fav fruit and anything with coconut definitely commands my attention.
Er, did anyone mention diet? :op
Music: Muse, Sam Smith, The Beatles, U2, Jamiroquai, Maroon 5, Ben Folds, Blondie, The Who, ColdPlay, Lily Allen, John Mayer, Imagine Dragons , Bruno Mars, Paul Simon, Mark Ronson, Bon Scott, Sting, Eurythmics, Etta James, Prince, OneRepublic, Queen, Led Zep, Crowded House, Billy Joel, Elvis, Sinatra and this list could go on forever...
Love music of all genres but not a big fan of Country nor hardcore Rap.
Adagio Of Spartacus (favourite piece of music out of any genre)
Adore books but have so little time these days to indulge. Seduced by digital media. Love magazines and do plenty of reading on the net. Mass-media Junkie.
Pop Culture rules. Really miss "Borders", felt like I lost a dear friend when they went bust.
4. music & films
6. family & friends
The bad news is that life's journey is short. But the good news is that you're the pilot !
"Women are crazy and men are stupid.
And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid!"
What's the bloody difference between Brie and Camembert anyway?
You'll have to get to know me first and then eventually but reluctantly, I shall confess..., after a few glasses of red wine of course.
Someone that is open minded and is not afraid of change.
Someone who has a sense of adventure, that would trust their heart and gut instinct over their analytical mind.
Someone who has varied interests and believes in personal growth (intellectually/spiritually).
Someone that is passionate about what they do. Enthusiasm always produces a better more satisfying end result.
Someone that views the glass as half full.
Someone who prefers organic over processed
Someone that embraces multiculturalism.
Someone who dares to be different.
Someone who is an individual...
and finally, someone who hates liver, Brussel sprouts and celery.
That you are willing to deviate from the norm, can withstand cheesy humour, can handle a weird wonderful creative creature and you absolutely promise not to steal my Tim Tams (especially the double choc coated ones)...
Don't know why but most of my dates have been a mixture of: Sarah Palin, Lindsay Lohan, Julia Gillard, serial killer Aileen Wuornoson on the inside and the beauty of Dame Edna on the outside?
When what I am really searching for is someone with courage of a Joan of Arc, the adventurous nature of an Amelia Earhart, the heart of Mother Theresa, the warmth of a Mia Farrow, the creativity of a Deborah Harry and the tenacity of a Miss Piggy.
Yeah, yeah. I know.
