Do you like the great outdoors, love nature, exploring historical places and enjoy gourmet food? These are things that I enjoy and hope to share these activities with someone special. Travelling is one of my pursuits. I have travelled to the United States and Canada, Europe and the Middle East visiting friends and historical places. I live now in Melbourne Australia relocating for work from New Zealand. Friendship means a lot to me. I am a good listener and happy to take your call in the middle of the night and treat you to ice cream if you are hurting. Most of all I love animals and have volunteered for animal shelters which gives me a sense of purpose. I also have a cat and she will be relocating with me. What I am looking for:I am looking for someone independent with an adventurous streak and an interesting conversationalist. It does not matter if you have children but it is important that you love them and put their needs first. It is also a plus if you enjoy good food and travelling. Although I am looking for a long-term partner, I am happy to develop friendships with people who have the same common values and aspirations, as me- to be kind and compassionate and to give God the glory in all things. I believe that friendship and communicating is the key to a successful long- term relationship. I look a lot younger than my age so I do not have an age preference.
