Quiet, pensive but unexpectedly adventurous. Not good in crowds, but interesting company one-to-one.
Since immigrating to Australia from England twenty years ago I have moved around quite a bit, but within Queensland. Ever since I moved here two years ago I have felt like I'm permanently on holiday! I love living at the beach and spend as much time there as I can.
I am a languages teacher, but much as I love the children I sometimes crave adult conversation and some company in the things I like to do. I'm interested in conservation and multiculturalism. I look forward to being able to travel again; I did quite a bit in my youth and I speak French and Italian fluently. In downtime, I mostly read or go for walks. I enjoy concerts (classical), theatre, art galleries and of course opportunities to eat something I haven't cooked. I enjoy a glass of wine with my meals. I would probably be mainly vegetarian if my sons weren't committed carnivores. I'm not particularly tidy, and can usually think of something I would rather do than housework. My main vice is an obsession with correct spelling and grammar, which can give me grief, but I try not to let it intrude too much into my relationships. Don't let it put you off!

What I'm looking for
Thoughtful, well-informed, can have a discussion considering alternative points of view without feeling personally attacked if disagreed with. Kind, generally happy, who counts his blessings, realising how fortunate he is to live in this time and place, and only whinges sometimes (as you do).
- Male, for a relationship, dating, friendship or companionship
- Eclectic. Listen to and enjoy my sons' modern music, as long as it is reasonably tuneful, also the songs of my youth, but given the choice I have the radio on Classic FM. Quite like mood music, but silence is also good....
- Wide variety, but mostly fiction. Enjoy attending Outspoken events in Maleny.
- Tennis, walking, occasionally yoga.
- Send a kiss to flirt and see if there is an initial attraction
