Headline“Character is how you treat someone who can do nothing for you”
Happy in my skin but would still like to meet a nice woman for friendship & see if something develops. Enjoy being with a woman who is positive and self motivated & encourager; gentle yet knows her own mind + holds to her convictions. I prefer coffee and conversation to night clubs/pubs. A thoroughly domesticated bachelor who knows how to cook a meal and look after himself. May not be a brilliant chef but I get by & I even make the bed each day! lol. Might take a while to get to know the real me as i am a bit shy at first and my social graces are a bit rusty (am willing to take lessons lol). I am more comfortable in one-on-one encounters than in a crowd but I am honest, upfront and don't play games. Those that take the time to get to know me will discover someone genuinely trustworthy, respectful, sincere, emotionally open, romantic, loyal and a good listener. If nothing else, I will probably make a good and understanding friend. I'm looking for a friendship first and hopefully in time a relationship of substance...not a quick fix. I believe I am down to earth and not pretentious so I do not get caught up to much in materialistic pursuits, even though I have flown First Class once ¿. I have a broad range of interests and hope to still be "bending boomerangs" mentally when I am 80. I prefer chatting face to face rather than text messages or email - because conversations get taken out of context way too easily in those mediums. I'm looking for a single, down to earth woman; enjoys weekends away; go out for a meal/coffee or a movie & enjoys spending time with my family. Outside of touch footy I don't have a wide circle of friends. I have/enjoy simple tastes + simple pleasures - TV with Thai takeaway/Pizza on Fri nights. :) I like to travel. Dont drink or gamble.

What I'm looking for
A woman who knows her own mind. Privately playful and passionate. Eyes that reveal what words can't express; wise, gentle, compassionate & faithful. As Grace Kelly said to Cary Grant in To Catch A Thief "Why dear, no-one will give you a woman like that. You have to go catch her."
- Female, for a relationship or dating
- Like 70s + 80s (Blondie & Belinda Carlisle top the list) and rely on my daughter to keep me abreast of more recent talents like Regina Spektor, Florance & Machine, Ellie Goulding, Sara Bareilles, Lana Del Ray
- History, sociology, apologetics, philosophy, business + finance. I like Tom Wolfe, Michel Houllbeq, Wilbur Smith's earlier works, John Steinbeck + some crime fiction (Jo Nesbo, Mankel Henning).
- Movies & TV
- The Affair, Game Of Thrones, Westworld, Billions, The Walking Dead, Vikings, Mad Men, X Factor, Dancing With Stars, Friday Night Football. Movies - all types incl foreign. I enjoy movies :)
- Touch Footy (State & National level). Enjoy bedroom sports that aren't confined to the bedroom (that's a joke - ok). Enjoy watching NFL & MLBaseball (Dodgers, Giants). I still watch NRL but less each year - a bit disillusioned by that sport.
- Other Interests
- Reading bio, Philosophy + sociology, Christian Apologetics, Movies, Business Finance, Trivia Nights. Would like to travel more - just returned from 2 weeks in Iceland. Happy even just to go back to US again and visit the national parks, Niagra, Yellowstone, Rushmore. Interested in Swe/Nor + Greenlnd
