I'm a genuine guy not genuinely looking to date but I am genuinely looking to make genuine rewarding friendships. Anything else would be both unexpected and a pleasant surprise. And I like surprises ;)
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.
Activities I enjoy include travel, music, cinema, camping, anime, video games (in moderation) and "non-gym" healthy activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, indoor rock climbing, hiking, and "mud runs".
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 have been to New Zealand twice. In fact I plan to go back there this year for a working holiday. I've just not figured out when or where :)

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 (unless I'm ill/hungover).
Planning a house sitting working holiday in New Zealand in 2016 :D
I can do origami :P
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.
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?

Music: I'm pretty eclectic, liking genres from rock, metal, pop electronic through to folk, celtic and other "world music". Artists such as these have featured on my playlist over the years: Ayreon, Within Temptation, Disturbed, Emilie Autumn, 30 Seconds To Mars, Lacuna Coil, Metallica, Evanescence, Coldplay, 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, Lindsey Stirling and The Piano Guys.

Not necessarily all in that order ;)
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?
I like cardboard boxes.
I take a cushion to the cinema.
I'm not as vanilla as I may seem.
I've answered over 3500 questions.
I think I need help making my profile shorter.
What? You were hoping for something more juicy? I'm an open minded open book but that doesn't mean I'll put everything on public display ;)
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!
