Before diving into what I am looking for, I should probably give
some context. I am what is often referred to as a TCK (Third
Culture Kid), which is a person who has spent a big part of their
lives living abroad, a person with a very strong cultural
understanding, yet someone who does not really relate to any single
culture, but many of them. I grew up in all four continents and
spent most of my life in Italy where I spent 7 years. I am
multilingual with French being my native language. Interestingly,
my career has been just as diverse as my life and I worked in the
investment banking industry for a good chunk of my career before
moving to the high tech industry focusing on talent management. It
is with great humility that I realized that the wall street culture
did not reflect my values, nor my passion. I have huge ambitions
centered around diversity and opening up opportunities to all
people regardless of background.
What am I looking for relationship-wise? Well, like many of you, I
have loved and lost to the point where I have now come to the
realization that there is a clear difference between love and lust.
Love expands and lust fleets. Unfortunately, I had to learn
valuable lessons the hard way but I grew tremendously from these
experiences, and so I have no regrets. I no longer seek perfection
up and realize that the honeymoon phase only last so long. I now
understand the power of effective communication as the heart of any
My partner would be someone who is empathetic, self assured,
sensitive but confident. Someone who is willing to discover new
horizons and embrace diversity. Someone who is willing to get out
of their comfort zones and try something new (within reasons
There is obviously much more to me than that. Intrigued? Say hi :).
You never know where taking a chance can lead.
