You're going to be very special...to me.
Honest and genuine (strong opening cliche eh?!). Serious when I need to be but basically I just want to laugh and enjoy life.
Enjoy good company, good conversation and comfortable silences. Relaxed, easy going and comfortable in my own skin.
Also like poetry. Yep, seriously. Thought I better mention this up front in case it's an automatic deal breaker :) In fact music is mainly poetry to me. It's all about the lyrics you see...plus I've got cloth ears. Can't dance either...think it's that ear thing again, or maybe I just have a severely underdeveloped dancing gland.
I love the ocean and still surf very regularly. Like to think it helps keep me young in the head as well as young in the body.
I appreciate good wine, good food and make a mean risotto.
Professionally, I'm the General Manager of a construction company. I've spent significant periods working overseas in Company Director, Project Management and Project Development roles - in the States, China, Argentina and Chile but in the end just got tired of getting on planes (yeah, I know...big whoop!). Having said that, I love travelling for pleasure (and adventure) and will do more in the future.
I keep in decent shape but I'm no fanatic. Just for general well being and so I won't drown in the surf. My pics are a couple of years old now. Sorry but I suck at taking selfies. Hair's a little greyer but the rest is the same. And anyway, I'm like good wine - just keep improving with age! : )
What am I looking for? Someone who will be very special to me. My best friend, lover and partner - a team in all things.
p.s. I think it's poor form to make contact without a photograph. I've put myself out there to you (even went topless!) and expect the same courtesy in return - well, perhaps not the topless bit : )

What I'm looking for
HAPPY, HAPPY and HAPPY. Then... Intelligent, articulate, independent and confident. Curious, open, fun and funny. Spur of the moment...that'd be fun, lets go! A girl who is as comfortable in a sleeping bag as the Hilton.
- Female, for a relationship or dating
- Varied taste. I think Springsteen is a genius. As examples, also: Counting Crows, Van Morrison, KD Lang, Eddie Vedder, Lyle Lovett plus some Latin music.
- I read a lot. Good fiction, history, historical fiction and some general science pitched at non scientist but inquisitive types like me. Have to be entertained but like to learn along the way.
- Movies & TV
- I tend to watch foreign movies rather than Hollywood. Theory is we get so few of them, what we do get are good - solid plot, fine acting and production. T.V. is generally SBS, ABC, doco's and anything that I think will make me laugh. Think "Modern Family' is very clever and very funny.
- Surfing - all forms. From body surfing to Stand Up Paddle. Love to swim - ocean swam for 20 years at Cottesloe in Perth - sharks and all :) Also like watching a good game of footy. Used to play and get a few kicks myself. Also like golf and plan to get back into this...when I'm old :)
- Other Interests
- Seem to be acquiring more of an interest in the arts in general...not that I've done much about it - just saying, you know, I could be swayed..
