G'day mate
5 Cs - computers, cars, cuisine, cameras and cans more @ http://a-chau.net/
My interests include long walks on the beach, romantic candlelit dinners, getting wet in the rain, cuddling, holding hands, dancing under the moonlight, snuggling in front of a fireplace, getting lost at amusement parks, kissing at the movies, picnics at nature reserves, horseback riding, eating cotton candy, lying on the grass watching clouds go by, playing frisbee at the park, feeding ducks at the pond, gift wrapping, making cards and talking about true love.
