Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there ! :-) To describe myself: I am an I-S-T-J according to the
Myers-Briggs' Type Indicator Test. (That is an acronym for
Introvert; Sensual; Thinking; Judging). The "Judging" means that I
usually weigh-up the pros & cons before making a decision. I am
not impulsive, and I tend to think things through before I act....
I guess that's why I'm not a gambler or a criminal, and why I will
never be the next Al Capone ! ;-)
I prefer Summer to Winter, and I prefer sunny days to rainy days !
I like being among nature --- whether it be kayaking, snorkelling,
swimming, bushwalking, abseiling, or snow-skiing. But I also like
quiet days indoors --- just reading a good book, or listening to
music, or chatting, or simply dozing (occasionally I will even try
all 4 activities at once !). I also enjoy travelling (in Australia
as well as overseas); watching live music; and dining out. But I do
need quiet downtime to recharge my batteries.
I keep reasonably fit & healthy by doing moderate amounts of
exercise and by eating a mostly healthy diet (although what would
life be like without the occasional self-indulgent treat ?). I like
to eat Thai, Chinese, salads, chicken and fish. I am a non-smoker,
and I hope that you are too.
On cold winter nights I like to cuddle-up with a soul-mate in front
of a log-fire. I have a witty sense of humour, and I believe that
laughter and music provide nutrition for the soul. I also enjoy
being around animals, especially small furry creatures such as
rabbits and wallabies. I am reliable, honest, responsible, and
generally view situations from a long-term perspective (rather than
only the short-term). I am financially secure regarding assets and
