Oh, and I'm from NZ and I spent about 5 years in London. I'm in Australia as of five years ago because my girlfriend at the time lured me here. And hey, the money's decent. :-) I'm fairly introverted in terms of new people and situations, but I certainly don't lack social skills: once I'm warmed up, I'm all good. But I tend to prefer lovers/partners who are more extroverted than I am, for obvious reasons.
Regarding relationships, I'm into polyamory, so I'm not exclusive, but I do know the value of boundaries and commitment. I am not, however, into swinging or orgies (but if you're keen, go to it). I also have a kinky side I'm exploring at present, although that isn't a compulsory thing I require from other people (bonus, though!)
I'm not at all girlie - am actually fairly butch in a non-macho kind of way - but I do like kick-arse non-butch women. Oh, and I don't do boys (much), or your boy if you're a couple looking for a Hot Bi Babe. I also have no problem at all with bisexual or "no label" women - in fact, many of my partners have been bisexual.
I'm extremely opinionated about many things, including queer issues, feminism and leftie (anarchist-leaning) politics. Don't worry, I don't do political rants constantly, although if you don't consider yourself to be a feminist (small or big "f"), and habitually vote conservative, it's probably not worth wasting our time. I do, however, manage to maintain my sense of humour about many things - in fact, I have a pretty good capacity for silliness too. I can also manage to keep my mouth shut in front of the parental units or the boss. But if strong opinions bother or embarrass you, I'm probably not a person you'd want to hang out with. I also swear LOTS. Again, not in front of grandma, but I'm also not apologetic about it.
I also have a Dreamwidth/LJ, so feel free to catch me there if I haven't sufficiently bored you already. :-)
