Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't have a "type" - I'm just looking for someone with whom I
can sit on a rocking chair when we're 80 and talk about all the
amazing things we did together. For example, maybe we can throw a
dart at a world map and just go wherever it lands (barring current
I like fitness, but I'm not really into sports because I'm terrible
at all of them (yes, I've tried, ALL of them). I played volleyball
for a while (you can tell they're really scraping the bottom of the
barrel if they have to ask me to play). I do love the Olympics,
which is probably the only sporty thing I watch.
I like live theatre, comedy and going to markets (especially
farmer's markets), but I'll try anything once. I like outdoorsy
things that don't involve heights, bit of a wimp.
I used to be a voracious reader when I was younger, and am trying
to get back into the habit. A bit of a policy wonk (comes with the
job) and I like intellectual debates, but definitely don't want to
be serious all the time.
My motto: Dance like no-one's watching.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working for the government, what else is there in Canberra?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Going to the gym without breaking a sweat (I just go so I can
watch tv on the big screens).
2. Knowing a little about a lot of things, my interests are pretty
3. Being a good friend (my friends always accuse me of trying to
make them fat by giving them cake).
4. Being on time (my biggest pet peeve is people who are
chronically late, you know who you are...)
The first things people usually notice about me

My glasses? Apparently they're white hipster glasses that make me
look cooler than I actually am. I just like them, I don't think too
much about it.

Food: I will try anything, and there are no tastes or textures I
don't enjoy. I make my own pizza dough, yogurt, and bread. I also
have an ice cream maker. I love making things completely from
scratch (within reason).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends and family.
2. Being active.
3. A computer.
4. Books (I love the feel of a book and the smell of
5. Silicone baking tins.
6. A towel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. What my next meal will be.
2. Where I want to be in 10 years.
3. Daydreaming about my beach house with an organic farm.
On a typical Friday night I am

1. Dinner with friends.
2. Games night with friends.
3. Going to the gym and then doing a mini marathon of one of my
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I was studying in the US and didn't want to date for fear it would
turn into: a long distance relationship, a messy breakup, or one of
us having to compromise on where we wanted to live. And because I
was single for so long, one of my best friends asked if I was a

make many obscure references so otherwise our conversation may
involve awkward silence).
Please don't contact me if you:
