- Favorite Vacations Spot
A wilderness alive with fascinating fauna.
- Things I am looking for in a person are:
I’d like to make a close friend willing to have some fun, with the eventual goal of sharing our lives longer-term.
Hoping to find somebody who shares interests and will enjoy the odd adventure.
I love to spend time with people who get really excited about their passions; Excitement is infectious!
I value honesty, kindness, enthusiasm, logic and practicality.
Ideally there would be mutual romantic attraction between us, but I don’t really agree with the media’s vision of conventional beauty.
A ready smile is far more important to me than any makeup or clothing!
Not really seeking a long distance relationship, but will try to remain open minded.
- About me
John isn’t my real name because Google indexes this site, but please ask me if you’re interested. In fact, feel free to ask anything at all and I’ll be honest with my responses.
I’m a male Australian, hetero-romantic asexual.
I’m an INTJ-T (Architect) on the Myers Briggs, but don’t put too much stock in it.
My interests include:
Outdoors I am passionate about wildlife photography and wild places. Observing animal behaviour, appreciating the sounds and sights, and capturing pictures for others to enjoy.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel in many parts of Africa and through three states of India.
Being based in Adelaide Australia, I also enjoy visiting national parks, Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park.
There’s also a great outdoor food truck event called Fork On The Road. It’s a great place for varied local dining and atmosphere.
Indoors I love video games (especially those that are story-driven), tabletop RPGs or board games, and any science/technology. I read, listen to audio books, watch informative YouTube channels, and subscribe to many podcasts.
I enjoy trying new foods or exploring markets, drinking good coffee and talking in-depth about obscure topics.
I tend to watch Netflix (etc.) series quite selectively, only when one really peaks my interest. I don’t have TV/cable and you’ll find a lot of pop-culture stuff flies under my radar.
There are too many other interests to write down really – it’s a pretty eclectic list. My day-to-day is spent working in IT, saving for my next trip to Africa, India, or maybe South America, and dreaming.
The gritty details:
I am a non-smoker who only drinks in social settings. I eat meat sparingly for environmental reasons, and try to purchase items like milk and eggs from local sources I know treat their animals well.
Don’t mind what you eat, so long as you’re not trying to convert me or shame others. 🙂
I’m full-time employed, generally neat and tidy, try to be organised.
As an atheist I find the history of religion fascinating from a distance, but beliefs too frustrating to deal with closer to home. Apologies.
Happily free of children and keen to stay that way indefinitely.
Giant wall of opinions:
I believe that climate change is real, and that we need to conserve the biodiversity and environment we have with great urgency.
Our leaders should listen to scientists and experts more than they do; It’s actually pretty depressing that we keep voting in those who’d steer spaceship Earth toward destruction.
Everyone (especially pregnant women) should have the right to make choices concerning their own bodies, without anyone judging them for it or interfering.
Trump, ScoMo, BoJo etc? No thanks.
But all of that said… I try to remain open minded and engage positively with people; Even if I disagree with their point of view, there’s value in recognising and respecting the validity of the feelings that motivate them.
I’m not perfect, but appreciate it when friends let me know I’ve slipped up, because it gives me the opportunity to improve.
Where I am on the asexual spectrum:
I feel mainly attracted to women and feminine-leaning androgyne.
The practicalities of sex are not appealing to me, and I prefer not to dwell on them.
Respectful physical contact such as hand holding, hugs, intimate cuddling, and possibly kissing, are pleasant and affirming if both of us are comfortable with them.
If a partner happened to be demi-sexual there is perhaps scope for that kind of intimacy one day, but there’d be a lot of distance to cover first.
