Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, never really thought my height was my most defining
characteristic, but then I guess it is what most people see first.
Personally I like to think its my relaxed attitude to life, my
sense of humour, my thoughtfulness, even perhaps that small amount
of intelligence I cling to. All hard to see from the outside or
even in a profile online and talking about it just makes you sound
immodest. All in all, I think well balanced, neither glass half
empty nor glass half full so much as let's just get another
As to who/what I'd like to find... I really am open to most people.
(In fact the OKC quiz engine has already chided me for marking so
many of my answers as "you can have any opinion you like"...
apparenty I'm not judgemental enough for it to know what I like!)
Would love to find a soul mate but am starting to think its not
going to happen. Or would love to find someone to just hang out
with for company. Am happy to find anything in the spectrum in
Other 'nice to haves' would be an open mind, someone who can hold
up their end of the conversation and the usual sense of humour/fun
and sense of adventure.
What I'm definitely over is the pretty people who are so self
absorbed you never get into their life or the ones who really need
a pet not a partner.
So if you're well balanced, feel like a chat to see if there's any
chemistry and feel you can tick at least some of the boxes, you
know what to do...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Life has a habit of whizzing on even without any input from us. For
now I've been working in I.T. but am approaching that point where
I'm going to pull back from the coalface. Am seriously considering
going back to uni and trying a doctorate of some sort. Only time
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think I'm pretty good at most of things I put my mind to.
The trick is merely to make me care about it and I'll engage and
generally deliver. Its that whole protestant work ethic thing of if
its worth doing, its worth doing properly and taking pride in the
result. Which necessarily means doing the sort of job we could take
pride in to begin with.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Errr... I'm just under 6'5" in my socks. Odds are you did a double
take when I came in to see if I fit under the door. But I'm willing
to overlook your superficiality! ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books... hmm mostly reading SF and then the more or less notable
authors of the day. Neal Stephenson, David Weber, John Varney. But
I do love Terry Pratchett's work. Film and shows. Broad tastes and
love anything that brings 'new' ideas to the table. Music...
happily trapped in the music of my youth. Pink Floyd, Dire Straits,
U2, INXS, Creedence, Fleetwood Mac, and so on. But also like some
newer music: Five for Fighting, Bare Naked Ladies, even some Lady
Gaga, Lily Allen or other 'pop'py stuff. Generally I'm looking for
music by people who have clearly mastered their instruments/have
musical talent. So more Clapton to Lily Allen and fewer rappers,
hip-hop, boy bands or people whose talent is displaying a tattoo.
Food... so many choices. Indian, Italian, Thai, French, Chinese,
Malay. But hey, like a sausage roll and you just can't beat good
fish and chips.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmmm... my bed, good company, my health, a nice chenin blanc,
something to read and time to enjoy them all.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work, work, work. That's all young people think about these days.
Frankly I'm here looking for a good reason to think about something
else... like it to be you?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Face down in a pool of vomit... oh wait. That's not me at all. Have
been living the quiet home life for a while. Do get out when the
right company is available. Do something fun. Or indeed with the
right company stay home and have fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no shame. I am happy to reveal all. What would you like to
hear? Dinner with the dominatrix? The date from RSVP.com.au who was
so very obviously a guy when I met "her". (Not my scene!) How about
the internet psychotic (good thing she lives in another country!).
Been there, done that, got some fabulous t-shirts! ;-)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you have an open mind, you're in touch with both your inner child
and your outer adult, you're not just looking for an accessory to
go with that tan handbag at parties, you're not on a short
countdown to marriage (I'm open to it but tired of those who expect
the proposal on the 3rd date), you are still prepared to take some
risks and have fun, you are not a morning person, life begins at...
what time is it now?
