Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm intelligent (with an inquisitive, imaginative and analytical
mind) and an independent thinker. I'm confident, warm and gentle,
and very honest and open. My quirky sense of humour is more British
I'm here looking for a partner - someone who will become my best
friend and fulfilling lover.
You must live in Melbourne, be a non-smoker, not have young
children living with you nor want kids, and though slightly cuddly
is fine, not be very overweight.
For those still reading, I hope you will share most of my values
and some of my interests. I think it is healthy if we have the
freedom within the relationship to have some of our own interests,
and so don’t expect you to share all my interests, or me to share
all of yours.
I've previously enjoyed several 'significant' relationships (one of
which lasted ten years), so I have high, but realistic,
expectations of the happiness of a great long-term relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working at home writing my own website about a form
of intimate relationship.
Before that I worked at the Telstra Research Labs for 25 years (my
last role was managing a team researching broadband
I think conservation is very important (I'm a life member of ACF).
I was the Greens candidate for Higgins in the 2007 federal election
- this was a great adventure!
At the moment I have chosen not to own a car (I might buy one again
one day). I'm financially secure and fully own my own home.
The first things people usually notice about me

is my openness and quirky sense of humour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading: I regularly read New Scientist, and my paper is The Age.
I've recent read 'Tantra - The Cult of the Feminine', 'The Slap',
'The Raw Shark Texts' and a memoir written by a friend. I'm a fan
of my Kindle.
Movies: I love arthouse, cult and foreign (eg Kubrick, Lynch,
Greenaway), but most of my collection is more mainstream. Recently
I have been enjoying seeing some of my old favorites on blu-ray
(Matrix, The Godfather. Lord of the Rings) and some Blu-ray TV (Mad
Men, Firefly). I don't watch commercial TV - just the ABC and
My home theatre is such a good experience that I now find that I
enjoy movies at home more than at the cinema.
Music: I have a huge CD collection ranging from Early, Baroque
(Bach), Classical (Mozart, Beethoven), Contemporary (Glass, Nyman)
... to Jazz, World, and Rock (King Crimson, Porcupine Tree). Rock
and opera are amazing on Blu-ray.
Food: I love eating out at local restaurants (esp Indian, Japanese
and Thai) and sharing a bottle of wine (I'm a red man).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1 - my friends,
2 - meaningful sharing of intimacy, sensuality, erotic fun and
3 - my huge collection of CDs, DVDs, and blu-rays,
4 - good food,
5 - my bicycle (with no car I need this to get around!)
6 - the internet (both for work and pleasure)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, the meaning of life, the movies and music I've seen, and
how to best explain all the concepts involved in the writing of my

eating out at a local restaurant with a friend then going back home
for some relaxation and perhaps a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I enjoy giving massages (inc foot massages) and love lots of
cuddles (very good for the soul). I've previously had great success
in using my own mix of Tao and Tantra to enhance sensuality,
intimacy and passion, and thus the whole relationship (this is the
subject of my website). It is very important to me that my partner
Answering the questions on OkCupid depends greatly on what you are
looking for. This profile is what I want from a rest-of-life
partner - so things like us having shared values and you not having
young children or being a smoker become very important (though I
would be much more open minded when seeking a friend).

if there is no mutual chemistry there is usually a very interesting
