What worries you the most about this experience?
I’m most frightened that if the relationship is an unhealthy one, I might remain in it too long due to the ring on my finger.
Definitely a hopeless romantic! I love to surprise my partner with little things here and there, and lots of surprise dates and trips.
Smoking is an absolute no-go for me and if you’ve got no career prospects, sorry!
Someone with a big, confident smile and words of reassurance.
Someone who can be a friend as well as a husband.
Fun, positive and spontaneous.
Adventure and romance.
I’m not much of a romantic-movie lady – I would rather a good doco or great yarn.
Compromise is key.
A smile back or I’m doing a runner!
It’s a hard one to say as my resentment quickly overtook love when I found out certain information that hurt me.
A down-to-earth girl who has integrity, honesty and some good looks.
Five years on Tinder is enough.
Her eyes – and her feet. As Forrest Gump once said, “There’s an awful lot you can tell about a person by their shoes.”
Honesty, communication and humour.
Tall, dark and handsome. Someone with great personal hygiene – I can’t be with a smelly boy – and who is kind and respectful to myself and others.
Give the poor boy a chance!
I did boot camp and attempted to eat healthy, which was hard because I love food. I also surrounded myself with the family and friends who were supportive of this experience.
I proposed to my previous wife after 11 days.
Adventurous, fun-loving, kind, thoughtful, affectionate and tactile. I’m also a very committed individual and give everything my 100%.
A woman who is kind, emotionally expressive, and someone who has a good sense of both adventure and humour. She is broad-minded, intelligent, strong, well-read and someone who embraces diversity.
To love and to be loved, and be there for each other in good times and bad.
I was trying to support my girlfriend in her goal to stop smoking. When she went to smoke a cigarette, I snatched it out of her hands and ate it in front of her. I told her I was going to eat every cigarette that she tried to smoke because I loved her and I was concerned for her health.
Easy way? It’s like navigating through a labyrinth blindfolded – but once you’re there, you’re set. Failing that, I’d say laughter and food will do the trick.
I moved to a small mining town in Australia, where there was only one supermarket and one pub – I got bored and moved back home.
Falling in love and not being loved in return.
Dating hasn’t worked out for me, and I am ready to settle down and build a life with someone. I have nothing to lose but a husband to gain!
I once re-gifted a colleague’s flowers and gave them to my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day.
Honesty, communication, action, adventure and laughter.
I’ll be stoked that she’s turned up! Following that, a big smile would be awesome.
I’ve bought my wife a bracelet to ease her nerves while she’s getting ready.
My awesome mum: “Happy wife, happy life.”
I’ve been married once before for 24 years and have three amazing children. I have no regrets – that relationship has made me the person I am today.
If they want me to have any more children. They need to be able to support themselves financially and they’d need to be taller than me so I can wear my heels.
To be kind and thoughtful, someone that is easy to be around and genuinely loves being part of my family and friends.
Someone who is caring and supportive, and who puts me at ease when I am with them.
Someone who doesn’t want kids.
Be flexible – ride out the lows and embrace the highs.
I’ve been in long-term relationships before, but nothing has worked out. I wanted to try something totally different.
A warm smile.
I would like to say I’m a romantic, but I’m a realist who likes flowers. I want someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously but takes life seriously – that balance is so important.
I’ve been in love but never married. It’s the most amazing feeling in the world knowing you have someone who 100% supports you and wants the best for you.
This situation is different to a typical marriage, so my deal-breaker would be if my partner wasn’t authentic in their reason for participating.
I was still in the closet when I met my first partner at 17. I managed to keep our relationship completely secret from my family and friends for about two years. I actually kind of enjoyed living a double life.
Whether I like it or not, on this platform, I’m seen as a representative of the LGBT community and I’d hate to let them down. It would be my greatest unhappiness.
Honesty and a bottle of wine.
