I would love to meet a woman who shares some or all of these traits - a woman who is humble, passionate about something, athletic, emotionally generous, sensitive and loving. I am looking for a woman who can dissect a heavy movie afterwards, or talk about current events and social issues at length. It would also be nice to meet someone who would like to share my passion for tennis and music. It would be wonderful to meet a woman from whom I could learn and share in her passions as well. I believe humor is a necessity - be it dry, sarcastic, slapstick, jokes at others' expense or self-deprecating. To be able to "riff" spontaneously with a woman who appreciates these types of humor would be ideal for me. I do not like women who are gruff, coarse or ungracious rather, I admire women who are refined, cultured and genteel.
I am definitely a sensitive, creative, cerebral kind of guy. I don't watch football. I don't hunt, drink or go clubbing with the guys, watch Nascar, or fix things very well. I cook, I play tennis and music and I like to collect art. I enjoy foreign and indie film and I am very interested in current events - local, national and global. I have lived and worked in Southern France also.
After losing my mother to cancer in July, and being her caretaker for much of that time - I have seen so much suffering that the experience changed me forever. My mother was my hero. I am never quite sure whether to add this segment to my profile or not , but it is such a big part of who I am right now, that it's important for me to include it.
