How would an ex-girlfriend describe you?

I would hope with predominately positive comments.

How would your friends describe you?

(As described by a friend) Steve is a friend that is always good to have around and someone that you look forward to spending time with. On the bad days he is a caring, understanding and thoughtful friend that listens and empathises. On the good days he adds fun and warmth to any situation through his great sense of humour and wit.

What’s the first thing you notice in a potential partner?

Feminine body shape

Who is your ultimate celeb crush?

Katy Perry

Can you cook? If so, what’s your signature dish?

Yes. One I borrow regularly from a friend, is more traditional style Mexican tacos.  Featuring mince and chorizo with assorted spices, a killer guacamole (squeeze of lime and a blob of sour cream goes a long way to making amazing guacamole), refried beans and cheese, and, diverting from tradition, a mix of pan fried vegies usually consisting of mushroom, capsicum, and onion, all on a flour (or corn if you can get it) tortilla.

What’s your worst habit?

My ability to procrastinate to an elite level.

What’s the worst or best pick-up line you’ve ever used?


What’s your go-to move when approaching a potential partner?

A nice genuine smile

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

Heading out for a breakfast in New Farm, followed by a walk next to the river or around New Farm Park, and then stopping in for a coffee at a nearby café.

What’s the most important quality a partner needs to have?

Open approach to life

Do you have any horror dating stories?

Yes.  Went on a date with a girl who wanted to get a tattoo.  Whilst getting the tattoo she was complaining about the pain to the extent that the tattoo artist asked me (as her boyfriend) how I put up with it.

What’s the worst thing someone could do on a first date?

Talking incessantly about previous partners

Do you have a ‘type’?

The “girl next door”

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?

Went on a tour by myself with a local guide in Johannesburg to Soweto, which included taking local mini cabs and walked through the CBD area.  Ultimately it was a great experience, as the local people I met were friendly and the guide showed me her house in Soweto.
