My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lets be straight: I'm not looking for sexual partners. My sexual life was very satisfactory, but its twilight has begone. Therefore here I'm only interested in meeting people susceptible to be interesting acquantancies or become good friends. I have met already a few ones throuth OkC, and a couple of them became very close friends.

Conversation is important in my relationships, and it has to be witty. Common interests don't play an overwhelming role, nor does cultural level; but reciprocal charm and trust are capital.

Here is an attempt to a summary:

I'm a fundamentalist of open mindedness
I'm deeply interested in other people
I couldn't live on a desert island, I couldn't do without telephone, internet or Facebook - but I enjoy solitude

I think politics is important
I consider political discussions interesting, but think that nobody ever changed his mind through a political discussion.

I like discussions in general, but dislike them when somebody wants to defeat other discussants.
I dislike arguments. I'm rather coward when it comes to a dispute.

I'm kind.
I think sincerity is often welcome, but kindness and good manners are a necessary lubricant of social relationships.

I don't dislike when somebody is direct, but too much directness can hurt others

I like sciences as much as humanities.
I'm interested in the arts.
I'm greedy to learn.
But I don't despise uncultivated people - culture is not the ground for reciprocal interest and respect - nor is the lack of it

I'm neither rich nor poor; I'm generous; I dislike avarice and pettiness.

I tend to be tender.

I like to be on very late, but I'd love to wake up early : this is a contradiction. Not my only one:
I believe we are all full of contradictions.

I'm still close, and in some cases very close, to many of my ex partners.

I like real originality, but I utterly dislike the clichés of originality; I dislike people who are mediocre but try to hide it to themselves and the others by pretending to be original or claiming that life has to be lived without much thought.

I was bisexual until 25-27, then I lost the gay half of myself

I generally prefer to be with younger people, for the older ones are often bitter and boring: they either complain, or are too proud; they either lost impetus, or use it to pontificate and lecture you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
One semester every year I lecture on recent Italian history in a grande école in Paris. The rest of the time I settle in nice places, where I can work on books and articles that I write. In 2013 I'll be in Berlin from January to July.

Photography is my main (an only) hobby.

I have many friends, a couple of very intimate ones, but I'm always willing to meet new people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- at being a faithful friend, a sociable person, a generous host.

- at listening and being supportive

- at being witty and funny (like everybody around here claims to be)

- [I was going to write : at cooking. But everybody seems to like that: I'm too snob to do something that everybody does]

Oh: and I'm an excellent photographer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I must frequently pull up my trousers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All literature from Homer to Alice Munro. (But don't think that I read everything: far from that).

Music? All classical music, jazz and many songs. I don't understand many forms of labbelized music that the youngsters like. I don't know what those labels mean.

Cinema: old and new classics, but I missed most interesting movies during the last 30 years.

I like tv series, and I think "Six Feet Under" is a kind of nowadays "War and Peace". Mad Men, The Wire, are quite good too. Life on Earth by David Attenborough is fantastic. The L Word was very promising, but it turned out to be a catastrophe.

Food? I like all sorts of food, with the exception of real scorpions coated with chocolate that I found recently at Fortnum & Mason.

I don't dance (and I regret it); I don't do sport, except some times, and that just because it's supposed to be good for you. But I like walking and camping in the mountains.

I love conversation.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
F: Freedom, Friends, Flirts

Input/Output: Reading, Writing, Learning, Teaching

Conversation: Personal life, Politics, The Nature of Things, Sex

The Arts: Photography

The Sciences: Practising College Mathematics, Studying History and Economics, Reading Popular Physics and Biology

My (female) young cousin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

My friends

Possible projects and Plans

Love, sex and the nature of human relationships.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working (and I don't say 'alas' for I enjoy it)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When nobody sees, I put my fingers up my nose
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to follow me in the conquest of the Galaxy. I'll offer you a spade and basket when we succeed. The focus on gay girls comes from the fact that in general I get on very well with them.
