I'm originally from South Africa (English: 1st language) and have been residing in Australia for the last 13 years (my father is Australian). I'm currently employed in logistics at a saddlery trading company, but I'm a qualified web designer (although I lost interest in it as a career choice), business administrator and have dabbled in some other areas of IT. I really enjoy song-writing. I've been playing the guitar for 11 or so years and it's a favourite hobby of mine. My other hobbies include listening to and appreciating music, reading, redditing, listening to podcasts, solving logic and word puzzles and I occasionally draw when I feel inspired to. I'm interested in the more "extreme" sports (like skateboarding) but more as a spectator. I enjoy attending music festivals and frequenting nightclubs. My preferred taste in music is 90s-era "grunge" (or alternative), indie, post-rock and metal, but I enjoy and am open to a bunch of different genres. I like art. I enjoy entertainment that's different to the norm and I'm fascinated by things that are kind of weird and off kilter. I have sort of an A and B type personality in that I can be quite shy, quiet and introverted sometimes and quite outspoken, opinionated and extroverted at other times. I like a quiet night in and I like to party. I'm looking for people who are congenial, not necessarily 100%, but if you're single and have similar taste and share a lot of the same interests, then it would be great if we got connected.)

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

Too many favourites to pick just one. Sometimes Goodfellas, sometimes Fight Club. Sometimes Fear and loathing in Las Vegas. It changes.

Favorite Book:

Too many favourites to pick just one. I do like graphic novels a lot, so maybe Watchmen.

Favorite Food:

Too many favourites to pick just one. Probably Italian because of the variety.

Favorite Music:

Indie, post-rock, alternative, metal, punk

Dress Style:

Usually casual, so dress sense: t-shirts and shorts. In general, at the moment, a bit dishevelled :) I tend to fluctuate between having short and long hair.

Humor:

Kind of dry, but I do find a lot of things funny. My sense of humour is definitely intact.

Hobbies & Interests:

Writing music. Networking. Reading. Logic puzzles.

Travelled:

Various parts of South Africa and Australia. I'd like to travel Europe.

Cultural Adaption:

It depends, I suppose. I don't really have a frame of reference, so I can't say.

Romance:

Rent a hotel or cabin. Eat at restaurants or pubs, have some drinks, listen to some live music, chill at a beach.

Personality:

Both introverted and extroverted.

My Perfect Match is:

Obviously someone with similar personal interests.

Safety Tip - Protect yourself from domestic violence

Most countries such as the USA, Australia, UK etc have extensive laws and support systems to protect women from domestic violence. If you ever find yourself in an abusive relationship seek help immediately from the police or other support services. In most circumstances your visa status will be protected if you are in an abusive relationship. You do not need to stay in an abusive relationship to protect your visa status if you are from another country.
