Another possible deal-breaker is that I have a 12-year-old son who lives with his mother. I spend an afternoon a week and roughly every other weekend with him. I'm open to having more children with the right person. Actually, I would like that, although if I end up with someone who adamantly doesn't want kids, I won't be crushed.
If you haven't been deterred, keep reading...
Originally from Paris, I've been in NYC for over 15 years now, and I love it, although I go back regularly to visit. These days, I meet more Americans in Paris than in New York!
I am very easygoing, not a snob like the stereotypical Frenchman. I could describe myself as warm, confident, honest, and fairly ambitious. I enjoy going out for a good meal, a play, a movie, live music - not much of a night clubber - but also staying home for a movie and some wine. I don't take myself too seriously, even though my work can involve life or death situations. I'm an anesthesiologist and critical care specialist, and I love my job, but when my workday is over, it's over!
My sense of humor can be quirky but playful. I'm a glass-half-full person and I always see the silver lining.
I've visited most of Europe, including Russia, the Ukraine and the Caucasus, Iceland, most of North America, Saudi Arabia and Dubai/Abu Dhabi, China and Singapore, Turkey, but I still have a lot of destinations of my wish list: next Argentina, India, Iran maybe?
In my opinion, one of the greatest ways to spend an evening is simply with good friends, having some wine and remaking the world.
I am not an athlete, but I keep in shape. Krav maga (a martial art developed by the Israeli military) is a great workout, plus you never know when it could come in handy. Watching sports, on the other hand, has never really interested me.
One thing that fascinates me is learning about other people and what makes them tick...
What I am looking for: someone who is smart, kind, caring, considerate, passionate, honest, adventurous, with a playful sense of humor. Chemistry is very important and cannot be figured out online or over the phone, so I am all for meeting early. At this point in my life, I am done with having short-term fun, and I'm looking for a long-term relationship.
The physical aspect is also a significant part of a relationship, and in that respect I am looking for someone who is not inhibited.
I am a great listener, and you can vent to me about your day; I won't offer solutions unless you ask me to.
