Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
October 2015 ------ An English version follows
Ah! Comment décrire en quelques mots quelque chose d'aussi intuitif
que ce que l'on recherche exactement. Cependant, dans le but de
clarifier les choses, je dirais ceci: je recherche un homme
intelligent, éduqué, courageux, beau (à mes yeux), en bonne forme
physique et émotionelle pour une relation sérieuse. Pas une
aventure d'un soir ou d'un mois mais quelque chose à long terme
sans pour autant être contraignant.
J'aime ma vie mais je suis convaincue qu'avec la bonne personne
elle pourrait être encore plus belle. Aussi, je suis à la recherche
de ce compagnon généreux et aimant, amoureux de la vie et aux
multiples intérêts et passions préférablement en liens avec les
It is not always easy to describe in words something which is as
intuitive as finding what we are looking for. However, is an
attempt to bring some clarity, I will post the following: I'm
looking for an intelligent, strong, adventurous, attractive man in
good shape for an ongoing relationship. Something serious and
enduring, but not constrictive. Something not just physical, but
definitely not platonic.
I already have a great life, but I am convinced that with the right
partner in crime it could be even better. Therefore, I am looking
for a kind and loving man who has a positive outlook on life,
multiple interests (preferably in line with mine) and who will be
able to keep up with me :).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Je suis actuellement à la croisée des chemins entre le travail et
la (semi?) retraite que je m'apprête à prendre dans quelques mois
ainsi qu'entre le Québec et l'Ontario où j'ai encore des
I am currently at a crossroad between work and (semi?) retirement
that I am planning for early next year and between Quebec and
Ontario where I still have strong connections.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analyzing and interpreting data but in the day to day, helping
others, organizing a supper or anything else, cooking.
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.
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

Parmi mes multiples intérets (la liste est longue) je veux
Les arts et les événements culturels sous toutes leurs formes (ou
L'activité physique comme le Pilates (que je pratique plusieurs
fois par semaine), le yoga, la marche et la randonnée
Les arts de la table et les cuisines du monde.
I love all art forms, and attend various cultural events:
exhibitions, concerts, shows, films, lectures, festivals, etc. on a
very regular basis. The gym is not my thing but I keep active and
expect the same in return. I enjoy Pilates that I practice 4 to 5
times a week.
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, the great
French singers like Brel, Brassens, Barbara (this is just for the
letter B :-)).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good cup of coffee and great food (without really being a
Pilates and being active and in contact with my environment
Favorite books, music and films (that count for arts in
Feeling useful and appreciated
Love, physical and emotional intimacy and a sense of
Hope and inspiration
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.
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?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
