First of I am 46 not 45.
Originally from France I have made Chicago my home since 1992.
I am a sweet human being who enjoys a healthy lifestyle. I strive to challenge myself mentally and keep myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit.
I am athletic and enjoy being active, and seek someone who values these things himself. I am adventurous, ambitious, tenacious, loving, responsible, passionate, loyal, and affectionate. I enjoy talking and listening, love to travel, explore the outdoors, hiking, backpacking, bike riding, and tennis. I also like staying in to snuggle and watch a movie.
I practice yoga and mediate regularly.
Laughing and being silly is important to me; I appreciate and welcome a partner's sense of humour and silliness. I am usually high energy and not always patient, but am taking my time with that :-) Myers Briggs says I am an ISTJ.
My tastes in music are eclectic.
Movies: “Tell no one” was fantastic, Midnight Express, Missing, The Year of Living Dangerously, Indies, Foreign movies, drama, the life of others, action, etc.
Series: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, The Wire, Bloodline, House of Cards, Lie to me, The Tudors, Spartacus, Blacklist, Damages, Spiral, Walking dead (Yeah, I know never thought I would get into it..)
Books: Richard Bach, Paolo Coelho, Carlos Castaneda, Mitch Albom, the second brain, non-fiction. Pema Chodron, etc.
I am looking to date and would ultimately like to be in a healthy, long-term relationship with a man who is attentive, reliable, curious about the world, affectionate, loyal, emotionally and financially secure (as in fiscally responsible, stable, self-supporting). I'd like to meet a man who knows himself yet continues to seek and learn more. Honest and open communication is important to me. I am attracted to a man who goes after what he wants in life and is open to nurturing a relationship with me.
