I am looking for a man who, just like me, is intelligent,
open-minded, emotionally available and open, kind, outgoing and who
has a good sense of humor. Someone who would also share with me a
positive outlook on life and the knowledge that open and candid
communication, compassion and tolerance go a long way. Someone who
doesn't put emotional barriers and is comfortable expressing
feelings. Someone active, in relatively good health and good shape,
able to balance work and fun and who is sincerely looking for this
"significant person" to share intimacy, friendship and favorite
That being said, I am only an ordinary woman with her flaws and
imperfections (who would have thought :-)). But, I am also complex
and things become even more so when mixed with someone else
idiosyncrasies and preferences. The only way that I know of coping
with all the uncertainty of the written words and their multiple
interpretations is to meet. Something I am totally ready to do, if
I think there are reasonable chances for it to be fruitful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Over the past 20 years I have worked for the government where I
manage a team of professionals. I love my job which I feel
contributes to improving people's lives and at which I am quite
I love the arts, all of them, and try to integrate them in my life
as much as possible. I enjoy yoga and practice Pilates four to five
times a week. My lifestyle includes healthy eating, exercise,
work/life balance which make me much younger than my chronological
age. I feel and look better today than I did 10 years ago.
Although I speak English very well, my mother tongue is French. Not
only do I speak it fluently but I like everything about French
culture and go regularly to Montreal and Quebec City for a glimpse
I like traveling and learning about different places and cultures
as well as taking in some of the various activities our city has to
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am confident in my own judgement and willing to live with the
consequences while I am still able to admit my mistakes and to
apologize if need be.
I am able to walk the path alone but graciously accept company
should it please one's soul. In addition, I am able to share the
road and don't see the need to own it or to impose my way.
I am open enough to express hurt and to leave arrogance and bravado
at the door. I am not afraid to ask for a hand or a shoulder and I
am more than willing to offer the same in return.
I am respectful and accepting of differences and boundaries.
I do not expect change but adaptation and evolution and I am
willing to bend and most of the time avoid breaking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am always on the go and people notice my level of energy, my
great curiosity and my spontaneity. They also notice my
youthfulness, my smile and the twinkles in my eyes as well as a
certain sense of style. I laugh easily and I am told that it is
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I try to limit my TV intake but enjoy shows like Mad Men, the Good
Wife, Suits, Being Erica, etc.
My work requires a significant amount of reading (mainly research
and studies) so I tend to keep novels for when I am on vacation.
When I start a good book, I have the tendency of not being able to
put it down!
In the music department, I am quite eclectic and love smooth Jazz
(including Latin jazz, Bossa nova, big bands) and blues, some
classic and almost everything except hard rock and muzak. Among my
favorites Melody Gardot, Regina Spektor, Florence and the machine,
the Celtic Girls, the latin rock group Mana, Getz/Gilberto and so

Although I couldn't include friends and loved ones as they are
really not things, it's not much a list of things after all as I am
not very materialistic.
If someone was to ask me what makes me happy and/or what I am
longing for, I would say simple things like waking up and lingering
in bed preferably with my significant other, a great cup of coffee
with one (or two) croissant(s), my Pilates classes, a warm shower
(together?), a walk on the beach or in the park (I live close by),
and last but not least spending time with my children. I am the
proud mother of two beautiful and smart young adults (a girl and a
boy) and I have a wonderful son-in-law that I consider as my own
son. Spending time with them is always a pleasure.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about my future and what I want to
do. This would most likely include some community work and even
international work as well as enjoying all art forms and some
contact with nature like walks on a trail or a beach.
Not decided yet if I want to relocate and where. First, I need to
find this special companion to share all that with as he will have
his say in these plans.
Honestly, I would love to close my profile and leave this site. So
maybe, or should I say certainly, one of you gentlemen can help me
realize my dream... isn't it?
