NAME: James Hardy
AGE: 29
CURRENT CITY: Christchurch

James is a 29-year-old Telecommunications Technician who lives in Christchurch. The jet-setter once worked for Queen Elizabeth II when he was living overseas and cites his biggest regret as returning to NZ from Europe.

The laid-back larrikin is looking for someone who is genuine, easy-going and natural with a good heart. Not one to view things as a glass half empty, James reckons that no matter what, he should be able to gain something positive from the experience - and is optimistic about finding a lifelong partner. 

The South Islander doesn’t believe in love at first sight but does believe in a potential connection, which he hopes will develop into something more. James can cook and if he was trying to impress his significant other he would ask for their favourite meal or make them his signature Mexican style dishes. 

In his spare time he likes to play or watch sport and socialise with friends - two of whom include Ling and Zing from the The Block NZ 2017. He will also be hoping his future partner can also fall in love with his dog, Fred, and will want to travel to his favourite destinations in the world - Croatia and Greece.
