I've been living in Shanghai since August. It's a great city, and I'm looking for a special companion to help me to explore it further.
There’s nothing quite like exploring new places and immersing yourself in different cultures, and I’ve not done nearly enough of it! As well as starting to discover China, following the Inca Trail in Peru and travelling around New Zealand have been highlights so far, and visiting family in Goa is far from a chore. There are plenty of places left to explore though, and there is a vacancy for the role of Travel Partner!
I love food! I want to enjoy what I eat, so I really like going to good restaurants, and another dining companion never goes amiss - I still have plenty of dinner venues to rate in Shanghai. I really enjoy cooking, although I still need a cookbook by my side. I hold amongst my many achievements the first place award in a cheesecake-making competition! Ok, so there were only two other cheesecakes, but still...
I am a bloke and I like football - I can't help it! But I'm not a football thug and genuinely love it for being the beautiful game. I enjoy watching it, either on the tellybox or in a stadium, and also play when I can.

Intentional misspelling of words, and most aspects of text speak

The last episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air brought a tear to my eye. Twice.
And... staring out of the plane window when above the clouds has me in awe. Clouds are amazing.
