Headline“Diving in the deep end”
I joined just over 2 years ago, took a few breaks, and often think why on earth I'm still here..... My friends say I'm intelligent, funny, and great company. (Well they would, wouldn't they?)
I'm a health care professional, travelled and worked many places in the world. I used to be a bit wild, but I've mellowed. Perhaps too mellow!
My only daughter, 20 yrs old, is at University. I missed out on social fun for a while; it's time to enjoy female company again. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Not wanting, or indeed expecting, to meet the love of my life straightaway........
Recently, I noticed that the Guardian newspaper site (Guardian Soul Mate) allowed a number of choices (any or all), which included just friends/ let's see what happens/ a fling/ long term relationship/marriage. So practical, so sensible, so realistic.
I like that, and I try to be completely straightforward.
I divide my time between Sydney and Killcare, a very beautiful beach suburb adjacent to Bouddi National Park.

What I'm looking for
Intelligent, funny, warm, sexy -of course! I admire honesty and straight talking a great deal.
- Female, for a relationship or dating
- I adore music (most kinds, not all). It occupies a lot of my life. I have tried to sing and play instruments, not very successfully. I have a keen ear, and can pick up accents and dialects, am quite good at languages, and love poetry, though certainly need to know more about the technicals...
- I read all the time when I can, all sorts, from thrillers to biographies, even plays.
- Movies & TV
- I'd like to get out more to movies, but not TV, (except the quality serials), perhaps I just turn TV on at the wrong time, it always seems to be a reality show........
- When I was young, I was a good rugby player, and passable at tennis and golf. Now, I am still interested in events, (but don't play them too much, more's the pity...)
- Other Interests
- Theatre, big time. Have I mentioned travel already? Everyone does, of course..... I spent 2 yrs just travelling when I was younger, and haven't really stopped. Have written for Lonely Planet Guides (on health) .....
