Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Un splendido quarantenne, come diceva Moretti ! Alright I'll try
and be a bit more humble :)
In any case, I'm a bloke who likes to talk, go around old Paris,
and explore the world in words, when not in person. I spent eleven
years in London, with fond memories.
I'm also clearly of the left, active in movements against racism,
for social justice, and the rest of it.
I also play the piano and the guitar, whether jazz or rock. If you
sing, or play an instrument, I'm into that !
I'm into open (polyamorous
) relationships, just so
you know/ je suis adepte des relations non-exclusives, pas
forcément insignifiantes pour autant - on peut aimer plusieurs
personnes à la fois.... (how's that for translation ? discuss)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being politically active, playing the piano, reading books about
chimpanzees, discovering people, and, er, working.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Well, you can always get better, but I do have a taste
for people's stories, and I try to be attentive to people's wants,
discomforts, hesitations, etc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Trotsky, histoire de la révolution russe, Cervantes, Don quijote,
Jonathan Coe, What a carve up, Conrad, Heart of darkness.... Right

fantastic at making the right kind of links between history,
ideology and pop culture.
Filmwise : King Kong, The manchurian candidate, Singing in the
Rain, Pierrot le Fou, a lot of golden age Hollywood. Musicwise :
Beatles, Coltrane, Motorhead, and foodwise : wine, sushi,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books. Films. Records. Walking about. Food. Air. Water. That's
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Relationships, in all their variegated aspects. Conversation,
dynamics, change... also relationships as politics, dominance,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
thinking of going out to the movies or drinking with friends or
going to a political debate, then realising I've done that all week
and that I'm tired and that I'd rather stay home and read.
