More About Me

I'm only interested in hearing from ladies currently living in Victoria, Australia. Please don't waste your time and mine.

Basically, I'm a bit of a nerd. Definitely a little older each year, but still young at heart.
What is finest in life? - Snuggling up with my special lady, enjoying good food, nice wines and exploring the great outdoors. My interests include science fiction and fantasy, medieval history, cartoons, old comic books, films, computer games and 1980's electronic music. Spectator sports such as football, basketball, rugby and cricket aren't my thing. SCUBA diving, paintball, laser tag and archery are my preferred sports. My taste in music is broad: Classical, medieval, almost all pop music written before the Nineties, European synth-pop, orchestral rock, movie themes and even computer game soundtracks. Unfortunately, dancing is not one of my skills... It's a bit embarrassing to watch, actually. However, I can and do sing when the mood takes me. I'm fairly handy with basic home repairs, high tech stuff and a competent cook, particularly fond of Japanese, French, Italian, Middle Eastern and Mexican cuisine.

Bonus feature:If you enjoy pub trivia competitions, I can be your personal secret weapon.

I'm simply doing my best to grow old as slowly and as enjoyably as possible. I believe in being courteous and respectful to others, taking responsibility for my actions and dealing with the consequences in an adult manner.

I suppose you might say I'm a bit 'old fashioned', particularly in regard to courtesy, romance and the ideals of Chivalry.
Yes, I will hold doors open for you, as well as observing all the other social niceties that appear to have been forgotten.
Like everyone else, I do have my share of personal flaws. Relax, they're not deal-breakers.

I'm no knight in shining armour (I haven't worn it in ages, actually), although I will be there for you, whenever you need me.

More About my Match

I'm only interested in hearing from ladies currently living in Victoria, Australia. Please don't waste your time and mine.

My ideal companion lives in Australia. In Victoria, preferably somewhere in the Latrobe Valley or the Melbourne metro area. I don't mind traveling to see my Sweetie. She would be an affectionate, genuine woman who welcomes a little harmless eccentricity into her life. As far as shared interests are concerned, I'm not searching for a companion who has precisely the same interests, since I'm more interested in discovering things that I haven't seen or done before. If you have a hobby or a particular interest that you're keen to share, there's a very good chance that it may pique my interest too. Yes, I'm that kind of guy. If browsing through antique stores or farmers' markets are your favourite thing to do, count me in. No further persuasion is required.

I'm particularly fond of cats, but will do my best to get along with any dog that doesn't bite me at first sight. If you enjoy wining and dining on a fairly regular basis, I'm definitely into that. Good company, good food and fine wines are some of the better things in life. As for taking romantic walks along beaches, bush tracks, exploring abandoned buildings, infiltrating hostile foreign embassies or attending art galleries and concerts, that's also an enthusiastic 'YES!' from me.
Life's too short to be wasted sitting in front of a computer or TV.

If this sounds appealing to you, please feel free to send me an e-mail. I'll reply to all genuine posts as soon as possible.

I'm a technician working in a soil testing laboratory. I get paid to make mud pies and play with sand. Pretty cool, hey?
