My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not sure what "short term dating" means. Is that friends with benefits? A casual sex relationship that goes longer than a few nights? "companionship" without the long term commitment? Or a "lets date and get to know each other to see if there's something there for the long term, but make no promises"?

I (and others) think my profile is too long. This is the condensed version. Apparently.

I'm a genuine guy not genuinely looking to date but I am genuinely looking to make genuine rewarding friendships.

I have a lot of time, honesty and loyalty for those who can give me the same. I hold these people in high regard and will always make an effort to involve them in my life.

I like to think of myself as a humourous, sometimes witty guy, and even if you won't laugh at my jokes, rest assured I will. It's important to see the lighter side of life, just as it is also important to remain grounded and keep things in perspective.

I moved from Coffs Harbour to Newcastle at the end of 2009. It's a nice enough place and I miss Coffs Harbour, but I have finally established myself and have a growing circle of good friends here. But I am always happy to make new friends to hang out with and go on adventures.

Before jumping into my IT career (former PC tech, now web developer) I had an interest in metal working and natural therapies. Now I am beginning to turn my interest towards fitness and sports nutrition.

Activities I enjoy include travel, live music, cinema, dinners and BBQs, camping, anime, video games (in moderation) and "non-gym" health and fitness activities such as kayaking, indoor rock climbing, hiking, and "mud runs" such as The Stampede and Tough Mudder. I'd love to be more involved in archery, land sailing, and learn how to paddle board.

I like to be active socially but not really in terms of the pub/club party scene - that is ok on occasion but not as a lifestyle. I like to mix it up and add a lot of variety to the things I do. So you could find me going bowling (terrible at it), hosting firetwirling parties, laser skirmish, going to music festivals and live performances, and anything else that takes my fancy. My life is about opportunity and variety.

I love to travel and often take road trips along the east coast of Australia. I have been to New Zealand twice.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I am not working in web development I am trying to mix some routine into my life and improving my overall health and fitness. I aim to be more active as well as social. Through Couch Surfing I host travellers from around the world (over 100 people from 21 countries so far) as well as go to social events and activities with them (skiing, caving, sailing, road trips, kayaking, parties). I am also an organiser for a local social group on and we do a wide variety of interesting things (dinners, bands, rock climbing, wine tours, the list is endless).

I am not content to let my life stagnate. I am not a couch potato. I can't spend hours on end slouched in front of the TV.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fire twirling, making a fool of myself, helping people, video games ;), coming up with totally useless info, being a good daddy to a teenage daughter, discombobulating people, making up totally believable yet untrue stories or facts (some children no longer believe me a credible person).

Reckon I'm pretty good at all kinds of hugs including the nothing suss kind :) Try me. I dare you.

I seem to have a knack for helping people help themselves, which has caused me to sometimes ponder taking up psychology and becoming a life coach.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm assuming it's either my mesmerising blue eyes, cool fedora or my mohawk. Perhaps my adam's apple *amputates it*

But my hat is pretty cool. It has it's own post code.

Ironically for me, sometimes the first thing people notice about me when I open my mouth is my English accent. Which I dont have. I was born in Australia. Some Aussies even think I'm Canadian. Wot?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books (authors): Books are my way of getting away from it all at the end of the day and winding down. As such I read primarily fantasy and science fiction, with my favourite authors being Anne McCaffrey, Steven Donaldson, Mark Anthony, Ian Irvine, Julian May, Maggie Furey, Cecilia Dart-Thornton to name a few. As a kid I loved The Chronicles of Narnia, and Colin Theile (Aussie author).

Of course, I read important magazines from time to time, such as National Geographic, Reader's Digest, Men's Health and video game magazines.

Movies: Avatar, Ace Ventura 2, Aliens, Bad Boys, Hitch, The Bourne movies, Dark City, The Day After Tomorrow, Finding Nemo, Iron Man, Empire Records, Pirates of the Caribbean, The 5th Element, The Last Samurai, Wedding Crashers, Knocked Up, Hot Fuzz, Equilibrium, Stranger Than Fiction, Yes Man, pretty much any Jackie Chan movie. As a kid I loved The Goonies - remember that?

I grew up with actors such as Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Steve Martin, John Candy, Bruce Willis, Tom Hanks, Arnie and a bit of Stallone.

Anime: Escaflowne, Full Metal Alchemist, Gungrave, Appleseed, Robotech, Ghost In The Shell, Elfin Lied, Studio Gibli movies such as Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle.

TV Shows: I don’t watch a huge lot of TV but when I to, its the geeky stuff; Firefly, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, True Blood, Spartacus, Dr Who, The Big Bang Theory, Battlestar Gallactica, etc. What, no Game of Thrones? I'm getting there ;) Funniest Home Videos, Futurama, documentaries feature as well. I also liked Glee (yes I admit it!). As a kid/teen I loved shows such as Xena, Hercules, A Country Practice, Full House, ALF, MacGuyver (!) and... I can't remember ;)

Music: I'm pretty eclectic, liking genres from rock, metal, pop electronic through to folk, celtic and other "world music". Ayreon, Coheed and Cambria, Within Temptation, A Perfect Circle, Disturbed, Emilie Autumn, 30 Seconds To Mars, Lacuna Coil, Metallica, Evanescence, The Rasmus, Coldplay, Guns 'N Roses, Incubus, Fall Out Boy, Afro Celt Sound System, Loreena McKennit, Imogen Heap, Faith No More, Yoko Kano, Utada Hikaru, Yiruma, Snow Patrol and various YouTube artists including Kina Grannis.

I never thought I'd be the type to listen to classical music, but I often listen to it when visiting places like Sydney. By visiting I mean stuck in traffic. It just stops me stressing out too much. Unless it's opera, then I'll change the channel (back to JJJ).

My teenage years featured a lot of older music such as Led Zepplin, Beatles, Neil Young, The Eagles, America, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Cat Stevens, Eric Clapton.

Video Games: Borderlands, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Guild Wars, Baldurs Gate/Icewind Dale, Halo, Call of Duty, Gears of War, Bayonetta, Fable, Left 4 Dead, Borderlands.

Food: Italian and Asian feature most commonly.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sun glasses (due to my aforementioned eyes - the curse of lower pigmentation), daughter, friends, family, books, eye sight, early morning sunshine, being able to count.

Not necessarily all in that order ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I engage in a lot of retrospective thought regarding the path my life has taken, as well as what I could or should do for my future.

I also ponder what to do if there was a zombie outbreak. Help me plan.

I've already drafted a plan for The Day After Tomorrow.

Now that I have answered all 3540 OkCupid questions, what else is left for me to achieve in my life?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ah it varies. At home with a DVD, going out to dinner, having friends over for a drink and a game of Xbox, hanging out with my daughter, seeing a band/going to a party, sometimes even just going to bed so I can get up early Saturday morning for an adventure somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have long toes. I trip over them.

I like cardboard boxes. I seriously do.

I take a cushion to the cinema.

I think I need help making my profile shorter.

What? You were hoping for something more juicy? I'm certainly a discreet gentleman. You'll have to ask me privately for me to divulge my private things :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Hopefully, if you read this far and have decided to message me, you'll write more than "Hi" as your opening line, followed by "how are you".

Message me if you have something in common, or something about me intrigues you, and your conversation skills extend beyond generic "hi how are you?" messages. Communication is about meaningful EXCHANGE.

I tend to take a holistic approach I take to a person. I like people to be open, friendly, humourous, light hearted yet able to have a deep & meaningful conversation as well.

Proper use of English & grammar would be greatly appreciated (learning disabilities and second languages accepted of course). By this I mean please do not purposely mangle what you are typing/saying. I meen wot iz wif all dat shyte lolz.

I am a nice guy :D Usually.

Look out! ZOMBIE!
