My self-summary
Update July 2016:

Bouncing around for work, but like an old friend (with a mildly surly disposition) it's good to be back NY.
-------------------------------------------------------

I think of myself as a global nomad. Eclectic background - bi-racial, educated in the UK and Australia, work between continents, multilingual and multifaceted.

Friends have described me as:
- Great sense of humour
- Cheeky ;-)
- Serious, quiet, understanding, calm, intelligent,
- Intense, loyal, passionate and has a temper when riled!

I love diverse new experiences and anything that further expands my mind. I enjoy being challenged thought for thought as I find in-depth conversation sexy.

I am at a stage where my personal life comes first - serious and long term.

My idea of a successful relationship is ultimately where a fantastic solid friendship begins. That coupled with a good balance of independence, chemistry (mental and physical), clear expectations, and that elusive "IT" factor clinches the deal.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking it much slower with my career after being at warp speed for quite a while. Looking forward to coming home to the right man ;-)

I enjoy hiking, kayaking and generally spending time outdoors. I workout - mainly because it helps with stress and because I think food is glorious!

While I ensure I make time for family and friends, I travel quite a bit - tho seeing the world would be infinitely sweeter with someone by my side (plus who else would I snuggle up to on long haul?)
I’m really good at
Making the people around me laugh when they need it the most (or least!) and offering quiet support.

Problem solving, being goal oriented and giving amazing cuddles!
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on where I am really - people have some interesting perceptions but mainly my hazel eyes and my lips.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books – Am keen on autobiographies to political thrillers, to fiction or non. I get as much pleasure reading something from Patricia Potter as I do Dr. Seuss.

Movies – Braveheart, Gladiator, Blade Runner, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Godfather, In The Name of the Father, A Few Good Men, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Giant, There will be blood, No Country for Old Men, Schindlers List, Shawshank Redemption, Boys Don’t Cry, The Exorcist, La Femme Nikita, The Insider, The Departed, The Killing Fields etc.

Music – Favourites include Sting, Sade, Sneaker Pimps, Jamiroquai, Billie Holiday, U2, Kanye West, Metallica, Stereophonics, Gypsy Kings, Seal, George Michael, Matchbox 20, Norah Jones, Faith Hill, Jewel, Leona Lewis, Sarah McLachlan, The Fray, and Dishwalla.

Food – A bit picky about my food, also a junk food addict, however absolutely adore Malaysian, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Japanese.
The six things I could never do without
Family (the entire nutty lot)
Friends (the sort that does tell you your bum looks fat in those pants)
My BB for work + laptop for my sanity
My dogs Max, Renee & Maia
Tea accompanied by Marmite and cheese toast
Good book and spa holidays
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The maddening pace of life, why cant everyday be a Sunday(?)...where has all that time gone...life and career choices...why Mr. Right seems elusive ...is it me...him?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Various scenarios include out with friends for dinner and a movie, working late, off away on a weekend jaunt somewhere, away on business, dead to the world asleep..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I bite my nails, nasty childhood habit...
You should message me if
You think anything I've said resonates quite well with you and its how you envision a partner thinking / behaving.

You are balanced, funny, serious, engaging, and are done with the fun and games.

Please DO NOT message however if all you want to do is leave sexually explicit messages. It wastes my time and shames your mother.
