Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to the US about 15 years ago from France (I now have dual
citizenship.) I live in Northern Westchester and work in the city
(business manager at Columbia University).
We’ll probably have interests and drives somewhat different but I’m
excited about broadening my horizons and experiencing the things
that get your adrenaline going. In fact, I look forward to living
your passions and new adventures together. To me, pursuing our
passions individually and partaking in them together as a couple
from time to time sounds like the recipe for happy people and a
happy couple. I also hope that we’ll share important core
Spending quality time when we’re together is what matters to me:
doing some of the things we both like (hopefully visiting places,
participating in cultural things...), sometimes compromising,
helping each other out with some chore, winding down together in
our own way, relaxing in bed with a good book, or even catching up
on work next to each other.
I can find pleasure in simple things, such as enjoying nature,
hiking, or a joyride without a destination. I thrive on all things
sensual, good music, food, the arts…. experiences that instill a
sense of wonder and transport. Traveling, particularly to exotic
destinations or places with a rich cultural heritage is a passion;
I also fill the need for excitement and beauty on an everyday basis
by catching a glimpse of a stormy sunset; by enjoying a moving
performance or a spontaneous and deep conversation; or even
My best relationships are with people who are level-headed,
easy-going, self-assured and have a great sense of humor – maybe
because I’m free-spirited, passionate and spontaneous.
I'm hoping to find a thoughtful, engaging man for a lasting
relationship filled with laughter and love Maybe that’s you! :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My contractor looks at my door and says: "Well, the problem with
this door is that it's not level..." I burst out laughing and
respond: "Of course, not! Nothing is in this house! I'm the only
thing level in here!"
I know it was an easy one, but at least it cracked me up. (And no,
I have no interest in my contractor, for those who wondered!)
Staying level and self-improving - that is what I aim to do :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself; trying to be a better person every day; thinking
about other's needs; being cute (the accent helps it seems)!
Decorating/designing/gardening. On that note: apparently, I'm not
the only who thinks my place's got curb appeal - I was recently
asked if I would allow to have the exterior of my house/garden shot
for a movie! Which would include scenes of the father getting
remarried in his/my backyard! I must be doing something right! Stay
tuned for more info on that, if it works out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’d say I typically come across as outgoing, upbeat and stylish. I
have a witty sense of humor, with a French accent; and I’m very
affectionate and giving, thoughtful, and compassionate when I care
about someone - good things come to those who wait!

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
