70 Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
Seeking: Female 50 - 60
Occupation: Retired
I am looking for a woman who will be my wife, partner, friend and lover. I am a retired businessman living a peaceful, interesting life in a beautiful part of the world – in the state of Tasmania in Australia. I have a comfortable, peaceful, civilised lifestyle surrounded by natural beauty. I don't need to worry about money, my health is good, I am free to travel, I spend my time doing the things I enjoy. Life is good, but the problem is that I find myself alone, with no one to love and to share my life with. These days I am happy living the simple life, but I would not describe myself as a simple person. When I was a child, I lived in China (I was born in Harbin – my parents were Russian), Brazil, the USA and since 1960 in Australia. In my 20s I spent several years travelling all over Australia. Later I travelled to many countries for business and for pleasure. I think I have investigated more lifestyle options than most people. I have been married twice. The first marriage ended in divorce in 1993 after we had been together for 13 years. Then I met a wonderful Chinese woman, from Guangdong, and we eventually married in 2003. We were very happy together, but she died in 2014. That is why I am alone now. I am interested in art, design, music, travel, cooking and eating interesting food, a healthy lifestyle, spirituality, reading, boating, various sporting activities, gardening, nature, animals, real estate and investment. At the moment my main interest is looking for a woman to love. I would like to think that I am dependable, reliable, supportive, loyal, faithful, sensible, practical, reasonable, mature, young at heart, healthy, kind, compassionate, resilient, persistent, creative, tolerant, considerate, responsible, cheerful, good humoured, fun loving, optimistic, positive. Since coming to Tasmania in 2006, I have been living on a rural property just 30 minutes away from the centre of the capital city, Hobart. Tasmania is an unusual place because it is possible to actually live here permanently, comfortably, and economically in a natural, beautiful, unpolluted, uncrowded, safe, politically stable environment, with a pleasant climate all year round and still be close to a real city with good schools, hospitals, a university, an active Chinese community, restaurants, museums, art galleries (Hobart is the home to the famous MONA), cultural events and an international airport. I recently bought a second property in a place called Kettering, also just 30 minutes from Hobart. It overlooks the yacht harbour and has views out across the water to the neighbouring Bruny Island, an indoor swimming pool and a tennis court. The house needed some renovation but when that is finished, it will be like a holiday resort. I am quite familiar with Chinese culture. I have many Chinese friends in Sydney and in Tasmania, my business partner was from Shanghai and I have some (in-law) relatives in China. I visited China briefly in 1989 and then travelled around China in 2003 and 2005. I am a great admirer of, and have made an effort to understand, Chinese tea and Tai Ji. I practice Gong Fu Cha all the time, but don't practice Tai Ji nearly enough. I am a big fan of the Chinese dating show from Nanjing, 非诚勿扰. In Australia this show is called “If You are the One”, but I believe the literal translation is "If not sincere then do not disturb". Well, I am sincere, and if you think that I may be the one for you, please contact me.

Hi IF you have read my profile,i will tell you more about myself i have worked in a lot of different fields of work up until i was married, Jan my wife and i took a job as a general hand on a sheep and cattle station i,e farm for a few years in New South Wales the we moved to Far north Queensland and i was a sugar cain cutter, in the off season we travelled back to Sydney for work, we travelled around the country for about 7 years until it was time for the children's education to begin, we settled back in Sydney for a few years until i found out my mother was giving my wife a hard time so we left Sydney and brought a block of land in Brisbane where i built our family home, we had 3 daughters then, its a long story but we on the advice of the doctors we should or could not have any more children because of an accident i had had, Then after we had lived in a caravan on the block for a year and started to have our house built Jan got pregnant again much to our surprise and as the house was finished and we lived in it for about 3 months Jan gave birth to the first of our 3 sons we lived there for 30 odd years adopted another daughter and when Jan died i continued with my small drilling company i was the construction industry for most of my life working for different companies until i started my own, Which i had for 20 years, i worked mainly in the field and did all the tenders and quotes while Jan ran the office, after she died i continued on of about 2 years and almost got killed in a gas explosion i decided to give work away and sell the family home and move back to Far North Queensland brought the place i am living now So i know of the unconditional love of a woman something money cannot buy. I was a very lucky man in having in the fact of having a woman that gave her all to me unconditionally as i did to her, i have no regrets about my life and would not change a thing about it, not even the fact i sometimes worked 18 hours a day month in month out to support my family, i do have terrific kids all of whom i have the greatest respect for, all now have there own homes and families. So coming back to you, i have no qualms about who i am, i am not as i was years ago, my body is not as it used to be nor are my teeth as i have had a quite a few fights in my life none of which i started i am not rich beyond the fact of money but rich in so many other things i thank God for. I will with out hesitation commit my self to a woman who will commit to me i also know that time is against me and your a lot younger than i but that i do have in what time God gives me i will do all in my power to make sure your happy in the time allotted to us. I would want you to come over here first to see me and the environment you would be living in as i would not want to live in China as it would be to claustrophobic for me living in such a crowded place , there's more people in one city there than in the whole of Australia. i would however like to go back there to see where you live and your family. I also have no problems in helping you with your flight out as would not expect you to pay for all of it,i do not care if you are and have a lot of money to which i would want you to have and keep as your own in your bank. So there you have it, i am who i am, also totally honest as i have nothing to hide from you or anyone else for that matter. Now if theres one truly honest woman out there who and has the courage of her own convictions and whem she gets to my age, says what if, you can either live to work or work to live, but would like to kick off her shoe's and feel the grass and sand beneath her feet and likes being out is the sun, feel free to get in touch with me CHEERS JOHNO
