The current one...
I've had a more unusual upbringing to most people.
Although I was born in Paris, France, I was raised in a number of countries; changed languages and studied in English-speaking countries.
I've travelled to 33 countries, at the last count, and I've enjoyed seeing different parts of the world and how people live.
I've also had a long career in nursing, as well as doing a lot of other things, like working in a bookshop, publishing a directory, and teaching English to orphans in Kenya.
I now live a quiet life in a beautiful part of Australia with my 2 dogs.
I have many interests, including discussing philosophical matters, researching, eating good food, and enjoying cultural activities.
Maybe as a consequence of my life, I became an independent, outgoing, self-sufficient, and mostly strong character, but I am also a flexible, tolerant, generous, sensitive and caring person too.
I'm here on okc as I'm curious and I'm open to seeing what kind of men I come across. And who knows, I guess there's a slim chance I might meet someone with whom there's a potential for more long term.
Unfortunately, so far, after a year on okc, I'm not finding many men who are like me. However I've made 2 solid friends, and for that I'm grateful.
Living more in the moment.
Going through the thousands of questions on okc (up to about 1900 - and counting) and doing some of the many tests!! (Aren't they a scream!)
Drinking cups of tea!
Good drama and non-fiction.
Some films (off the top of my head): Red Cliff (brilliant Chinese film), Thin Red Line, Amadeus, 12 Angry Men (both versions), Das Boot, Memento, Shine, Casablanca, American Beauty (music is ++++), Oh Brother, where art Thou?, The English Patient (music again is ++++)
Love some web sites like TED
TV shows: 3rd Rock from the Sun was my favourite; also Whose Line is it Anyway, Timeline, Grand Design, Insight, Judge Judy, Monk, Waking the Dead, CSI, and GOT!
Music: world music esp. African but also classical, folk, American rock, 80s music general (great when driving), esp Shade, Elton John, Tears for Fears, Sting
Food: quality v quantity (French is still the best!)
. My freedom (not living under a repressive regime, etc)
. My own home
. My car (the freedom to drive anywhere anytime! What luxury which most Westerners take for granted)
. Flannelette sheets, electric blanket or a hottie for winter (I'm a sook!!)
. Aspirin (the only thing that will get rid of headaches for me)
. Toothbrush & paste
. Hot water for washing in (anyone tried a cold shower in winter?!)
. Friendships - love & quality time together, and laughing
. (Black) Tea & lots of it - many varieties
. Mobile & the internet
. Mustn't forget my glasses! Or what I see would be diminished.
. Beauty (in all its manifold varieties)
. What I want/don't want in life
. How to live as healthily as possible - physically, spiritually, psychologically, socially
. If I was to enter into a relationship, what I'd be seeking, and reflecting on the profiles I read - what it might say or imply about the person
. Why so many men on okc can't or don't want to fill in a profile, or write rather inane points (?facts)
You also need to be someone who's good at, and enjoys, communicating and revealing your true character, the good as well as the bad.
Otherwise I wish you well in your search.
Please do not contact me if you're strongly religious, you smoke, or do not have a photo, or filled in a profile.
