Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm NOT LOOKING anymore, and wish the same to all of you ;-)

I'm a nice French guy who loves intelligence and niceness.
I believe in sincerity and doing good around myself.
I like doing things differently from other people but I don't mind
doing like everyone else if it's the best way.
I tend to overthink and rationalize, but I often do seemingly crazy
things in the spur of the moment just because I don't see a good
reason not to.
I'm terrified of hurting others, and a bit clumsy at times.
I try to be the best I can, including stopping worrying about
I've decided to lead a meaningful life, because that's the only way
I can enjoy it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work on the finances of 1001 fontaines, an NGO that makes small
water purification stations mostly in Cambodia.
I help manage a non-profit that gives theatre classes and other
self-development activities (www.lesateliersseguin.com
I bike around in Paris.
I did a theatre show with some friends last year, and will probably
do another this year.
I set flame to the dancefloor at every opportunity.
I did tons of martial arts, and capoeira was by far my favourite.
Maybe I'll take it up again someday.
I go to the English-speaking café-philo at the Café de Flore most
first wednesdays of the month

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking out of the box
Trying things out
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My all-time favorite books would be "Good Omens" by Terry Pratchett
and Neil Gaiman, for the cheerful disrespectfulness and
"Spinoza: practical philosophy" by Deleuze, because even though it
was my hardest read ever I enjoyed the intellectual exercise and
liked what I read.
Then there are some French books like "L'élégance du hérisson" or
anything by Pennac, a lot of (good) SF and some fantasy, quite a
bit of philosophy, some psychology, etc.
I enjoy the movies by Tim burton, the Cohen brothers, Woody Allen
and many others. I really liked "The beat that my heart skipped"
(the English title is even better than the French one...)
There are also a few TV series I really like: Doctor Who, Dexter,
House, Six Feet Under, Blackadder, Jericho...
(for a time, I saw way too many TV series; now I'm more reasonable
As for music, there's a lot of rock: Nirvana, the Offsprings, Franz
Ferdinand, the Eels, and sometimes I just need the raw energy of
Marilyn Manson or System of a Down ^^
But I also like some mellow music like Stacey Kent or Macy
Of course many of the artists I really like are French: Noir Désir,
Dyonisos, Camille, Mickey 3D, Bénabar, Zazie...
As for food, there's little I don't like (here in France anyway).
I'm always happy with a steak tartare or a boudin aux deux pommes.
I like foie gras frais with a glass of Sauterne and I love salmon à
l'unilatérale... ok, I'll go and have dinner now, this is my
stomach typing :-P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food and air
Giving and receiving affection
My laptop and an internet connection.
Well, 6 things takes you back to the bare essentials, right? :-P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I do have a few staples, but no clear winner:
Hanging out in a bar with folks from Zebra Crossing
Playing boardgames or RPGs at a club
Staying home with a TV series or book
Going to dinner with family
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ah, but would *you* be willing to read about it out of the blue?
You should message me if

*at least* you're seriously trying to stop.
