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.

Love is simple. It does not matter how old you are, where you come from, how educated, how beautiful or how wealthy. Everyone needs to love and be loved. Relationships are complicated. Everyone seems to have different ideas about what they need. Cultural and language differences can cause misunderstandings. But if we begin by being honest about what we need from the relationship and do our best to be patient, tolerant and understanding with each other, I am sure we can be successful. If you are honestly looking for a loving, permanent relationship and consider passion, intimacy and commitment to be important; If you are affectionate and considerate; If the idea of living in a beautiful, natural environment appeals to you; If you think a peaceful life does not need to be boring; If you would prefer to spend time in the garden or walk on a quiet beach rather than spending the day in a crowded shopping mall; If you think I may be the one you are looking for and would like to get to know me, please contact me.
