Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My birth certificate shows I was born in one country, my passport
says I’m from another country, my residence permit is for yet
another place. I worked for Australians for many years, which left
me with an Aussie accent (or so I’m told). I’ve got a slight
penchant for all things British.
I love wearing high heels, but can equally don my sport outfit.
I’ve biked from Hanoi to Saigon, climbed Mt Kili, Mt Kenya. Almost
conquered Mt Kinabalu. Skipped Ras Dashen (bonus points if you know
where that is, extra points if you've been :-)). Love sports,
outdoors, movies, books, photography, salsa (as in the dance, not
the sauce), Latin rock (that’s Latin American/Spanish, not old
Roman ;-)). Love to have a good laugh and a good time.
I’m curious about other cultures, love to travel and have friends
all over the world. Don't think there's anything wrong with flying
for a date to another city/country if the offer is irresistible.
How about around the world in 40 dates? ;-)
Having said that I'm open to any reasonable offer from anywhere in
the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Benelux, France (and further afield)
- I'm only about an hour's flight away, give or take, from any of
these places and have no problem globetrotting if I think you're
worth it. Life's too short to limit opportunities. And even if
there are no sparks on the first date I don't think there's
anything wrong with being friends.
I don't respond to smoke signals, so if you want to catch my
attention you need to come out and talk to me - just rating my
profile won't do it. :-)

languages, getting stuff off top shelves for shorter folks, Trivial
Pursuit (naming capital city of pretty much every country on this
planet is my specialty), giving travel advice, organizing other
people's wardrobes and occasionally making myself a fool.

you are tall, smart, confident (that does not equal arrogant) and
able to lead a reasonably intelligent conversation (and that means
saying more than "Hi" if you message me). You are active and share
a few interests with me. Definitely have sense of humor. You should
have no baggage, other than the one for travelling. Other than that
I'm pretty accommodating and willing to entertain any reasonable
