My self-summary
I may be French but I am not your typical one (if that ever existed): I will not claim that "everything is better at home" yet decide to live abroad. And do not ask me about wine. I can relay answers from home but that's about all I am good for. Same thing goes for politics and the reason why the locals strike even when they have 6+weeks of paid vacations a year. On the other hand I will genuinely cringe when people cut the nose of the cheese. And I'll play on as many stereotypes as I can (yet I do shower, go figure, I am an enigma)...

I have been told that I warm and friendly and that I can be silly when the time is right. But you figured that out already, didn't you? I am also a geek, from way before it was deemed cool to be one. This is not going to change any time soon....
What I’m doing with my life
I am a white man in the Silicon Valley, so yeah I am in the tech business. If you want to know, I'll be happy to tell more (even without a NDA), but you will have to ask first...

Outside of work, I sometimes miss the academia. It is funny how the bad memories disappear faster than the good ones, no? Choosing between the red pill and the blue pill is hard...
I’m really good at
I do like to cook and I declared myself good at it. I do not usually go for the fancy looks (and tiny portions), but more the dishes I miss from home. I did not learn to cook in France though, why would I? There was good food all around. It is only after living in Texas for a few month that I felt the need.

Despite quite a few trials, I have not yet mastered the bread making part. Getting a proper crust is hard (pun).
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, if I start to speak, then my accent will come out. You might even get the patented word salad. Starting in a language, finishing in another, the whole thing topped with a tilted face meaning "didn't you get that?". It is always a crowd pleaser.

After that, I guess that it would be my personality. I am not your typical wall flower...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
* Books: You have to ask to see the giant pile o'books, in pictures or in person. my interests are varied but the technical books seem to prevail these days.
* Shows: Benjamin Sisko has always been awesome, even if the series took a turn for the weird. Captain Reynolds was quite good too. Mad men, when is the next season showing up on netflix? I am quite sad that Eureka is ending, but at least, they are ending it properly. In doubt Glee, but I will never admit to singing along when I watch alone. And the fact that I do not have a tv is just a sham. I find all I need online.
* Music, like with the rest. A good mix makes for a good time. The elder singers (almost) from the home country were pretty amazing. That is Brassens, Brel or more recently Renaud or LeForrestier. In English I do listen to somewhat younger stuff (no idea why) Lily Allen makes me laugh a lot, but I also like me some Queen or some U2.
* Food: I am partial to mine and I do not mind sharing. I am quite adventurous when it come to "land food". Seafood, not so much. I have been known to pick randomly on non-translated menu while living in the Sunset.
The six things I could never do without
* My bed. I am not an early riser. Even the bird in the house abandoned that battle.
* Good friends and good food. I love a home cooked meal, a big table, and lots of laughter...
* ... and horrible puns...

I need 3 more, but that is already a pretty good set I think. (I do know how to count. Yes, I do know how to count, you did not expect that did you?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The important part on this site would be how many emails does one expect before answering. Well, it seems that the number varies from person to person, maybe a way to play "hard to get". That being said, I do not send repeat requests, I'd feel like a begger doing so...

Also on the list:
- Why do people call a main meal an entree? It means entrance as in the starter dish at the beginning of the meal. So confusing...

- Why people took so long to realize that nerds are cool? Hint for the general public now, the next step is realizing that Star Trek is so much better than Star Wars (even before Disney ruins the whole thing)

- The amount of information that web companies gather these days and what they do with it. If they are as (in)accurate as the okc robot. We are in for trouble. I am actually quite an optimist (unless I am at work, and paid to bring the bad news, or writing that section), and while I make a decent living, I am not "wealthy" as mentioned. Did we get betrayed by Sir Bayes?
On a typical Friday night I am
There are no hard rules here. Depending on the calories intake at dinner:
* I could be at the techshop, destroying yet another perfectly innocent plank of wood.
* I could be reading a book at home.
* I could be cooking something for the next day's party.
* I have not been wandering in the city for a while now, but a couple of years ago I was taking night pictures of the city. Maybe I should get back to it.
* I could be writing notes on OKC... It takes so much time to write something personal!
* so many other things

One thing is for sure though. Night clubs are not my scene...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I first reached the US, I tried to hide my accent. It was a huge failure. My friends and I still laugh about it.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
Because you know you want to? Why else?

Also, to set the proper expectations:
- Cooking with you is much more fun than cooking for you. Really! No special skills needed beyond the will to try.
- I did not grow up in this country and I am not sure I want to trust the dating rulebook that people follow around here. If I like you, I'll say so, feel free to do the same. I also promise not to wait 2 days to answer a note or to return a phone call.
