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 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.
