I'm looking for a warm, loving communicator who has a working knowledge of themselves & is affectionate - like I am! I'm passionate, playful & faithful- If there's connection & sizzle.
And you'll find a surprising depth to me. I'm supportive and perceptive= a good sounding board.
As an artsy fartsy, inner city type: I go to all those film and culture-vulture arts festivals, consume greedily: films, literature, exhibitions, music - esp like being immersed in music when I'm driving -fast if I can-caught up in that capsule of sound.

My Friend the Radio: RRR & PBS(music), ABC (The Philosophers Zone, All in the Mind etc) -keeps the neurones firing..
An intimate relationship -(the more intimate the better!)
banter: I think I can give good banter BUT only when the verbal chemistry is right, usually after time of knowing someone.
-YOU ARE NOT MARRIED OR "AVAILABLE"
-You are LOCAL, in Melbourne, or perhaps Sydney (I visit there regularly) or an ex-pat ozzie who's about to return here (let's get practical)
You are fascinated by the workings of the human mind, emotions & psyche. You savour the absurd scenarios life throws up. Someone to chew over ideas with, banter with...
