Hi! I'm Daniel!
Yes, this is unusual, but it's genuine.
I'd like to tell you my story. Please watch this video.
This site is current, as of October 2021.
WHERE I LIVE: Adelaide is the capital of South Australia. It's a cultured city of 1.3m, and one of the most liveable cities in the world. It rarely rains, and the temperature is usually nice and warm. It's a great place to be, and you'll love it here. You can work, study, or just enjoy the high life. Yes, you can be from overseas. Contact me, and if we get along really well, I'll organise for you to visit, and you can decide if you want to stay.
CORONAVIRUS EXTRA: If you're a potential partner from overseas, you can come to visit once things return to normal, which will presumably be in a few months. Until then, we'll have lots of time to get to know each other.
MY WORK: My professional profile is here, if it interests you. The important parts are that I'm an internet entrepreneur, investor, and that I studied Genetics at Adelaide University. I'm a creative person, and a published board game designer. My first game came out this year, and is in shops now.
PERSONALITY: I'm an INTJ. These Myers-Briggs personality types aren't scientifically very sound, but people like them.
I'm a confident, positive, and outgoing person. I love to make people laugh. My sense of humour might be my best feature, but I know I don't convey it in this profile. It can be an extra bonus for later, when we start talking. :)
I'm not secretly some awkward weirdo who no-one wants, or someone who has social problems. Given the circumstances, you could be forgiven for thinking precisely that, so I don't mind clarifying. :) I've had more than my fair share of interest from women in my social circles, if that's any gauge. I'm very normal and sensible in all the ways you'd want, but interesting in other ways.
I probably spend too much time in my own head, and it's okay if you're the same. There are so many interesting things to think about, and the world is a fascinating place. I like to talk about things bigger than day-to-day life, rather than engage in gossip about people or local events. I'd love to have someone who's educated and informed, and very much wants to connect on an intellectual level. If you enjoy talking about philosophy, literature, science, or anything academic, that would be even better. People have been writing to me, to tell me that I'm a sapiosexual – someone who's attracted to intelligence. I've realised I'm only attracted to intelligent women. I don't like labels, but maybe this is a real thing.
I'm not religious. If you're strongly religious, that might be an issue.
What kind of a partner would I be? I don't know. I can only really look at the relationships I have with others. I've sorted out my own world now (with the exception of not having found a partner), and I spend a lot of time helping the people around me. It might just be Scrabble coaching, or running Scrabble clubs for people, or something insignificant. But I'm also helping all kinds of people who have very different crises in their lives. There's always someone in every family who does that, and that person is me. I'll entertain you, and make you laugh, but I really want to provide someone with a stable world, and all the support they need to pursue their own dreams.
AGE: I'm forty-one years old. I have the experience and wisdom of someone older, but I look younger. If you're looking for someone who has their act together, I'll be a good choice. If you're looking for someone to party with, I'm probably not a good choice. I don't have any specific age range of partner I'm looking for.
I'm exactly six feet (183cm) tall. Women tend to want to know this.
THE FUTURE: Yes, we can start out as friends. I'm not in a hurry, and a great relationship needs to be built on top of a wonderful friendship.
It would be nice to have a family, and I have the maturity and resources to do that now, but I'm in no hurry. I'm open to getting married, if it's something a partner wants to do.
I have bigger plans and projects for the future, but nothing I can discuss here. :) I'm always working on something interesting or creative.
EXPERIENCE: Despite my own lack of experience, I realise most people above a certain age have gone beyond holding hands and kissing. I'm just looking for one of the few people who haven't done anything more than that. I understand that people have had all kinds of different experiences, and have been in all kinds of different circumstances – some very good, some very bad. I'm in no position to judge anyone else. I'm just looking for someone like me, which is hard to find these days.
SOME WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Some of the women who contact me have never made any real effort to find a partner. They'd certainly like to have a partner, but they've decided that they're okay on their own. Some have just been very busy, like me. If this is you, I hope you'll step out of your comfort zone just slightly, and see where this strange rabbit hole takes you, unless you're planning on never having a partner.
NEW: PLEASE BE READY: A huge percentage of the good contacts I receive suddenly go quiet, often immediately after writing very nice and well-thought-out emails to me. I've pushed a few of these people lately, and found out that I hadn't said the wrong thing, or been too slow to reply. Writing to me had got them thinking, and they had decided they weren't ready to be in a relationship after all. The nature of this search is likely part of the problem as well.
You shouldn't be looking at this as though you're about to be in a relationship. We'll make contact, and then we'll do a lot of talking. We'll hopefully become good friends, and spend a lot of time together. When that occurs, a relationship will likely progress naturally from there. You need to decide that you're open to this process, before contacting me. If you're unsure, you can talk about this subject with me, and if you change your mind, you can let me know.
This is a problem far more with emails, than with messaging. People feel much more comfortable exchanging a few brief messages with me, than composing long letters of thoughtful introductory correspondence. We often have a friendly chat, and can work out whether we're compatible in a few minutes. It also lets me answer your questions, and discuss things much more easily. I strongly suggest messaging me (details below), instead of emailing me, but I'm open to whatever suits you best.
THIS SITE: You might've seen my ads before. I've been searching for a while, as it's taken me a long time to work out how to convey who I am, and what I'm looking for, to visitors. Initially, I tried to do this site anonymously, but that generated very limited response. Later versions were either not clear enough about what I was looking for, or put people off by being tactless. Response is overwhelmingly (though not completely) positive now, but that didn't used to be the case.
THE SEARCH: Yes, I am an entirely real person, and this is a completely genuine search for love. I'll very clearly update this page when I find someone, as many people are curious.
There are many women who are intelligent, and many who have the same level of experience as me. It's just hard to find someone who is both. This is what makes this search so difficult, and means I need to advertise far and wide. I receive contacts every day, but almost none are a match.
This search is a very difficult process in many ways, but I know there's someone like me out there. :)
If it's you, I'd love to hear from you.
CONTACTING ME: Email me by using the box below, or directly, at this address. Just a sentence or two is enough, to get things going. If you're on a messaging app (like Skype), or if you'd like to connect on social media, please feel free to include it. You can also just contact me directly on apps Telegram Messenger (I'm Daniel3063), or on Skype (I'm daniel.p68)
Important: Please do not contact me from South/Central America at this time. Enquiries will not be read. Due to a few recent local news articles, I am receiving very large amounts of low-effort contacts, mostly not in English.
I don't wish to engage any services. I'm not available for interviews, but you can talk about my search in your media if you wish.
