I have traveled to many countries, lived in six of them, and speak three languages. I am a native French speaker, fluent in Spanish, enthusiastic about my experiences; I am a healthy extrovert, lively, practical, oriented to the real world of things and sensations.
I don't take life too seriously and like to laugh often. Lead a healthy life style. I love to cook, from an elaborate meal to a simple picnic; will try as many cuisines or dishes as possible, and enjoy good wines (Life is too short to eat poorly and drink bad wines).
I have a positive outlook on life. Authentic, with nothing fake, I am bold, secure with myself, laugh a lot, comfortable in skirts or in jeans, at a concert or sitting on the grass listening to a jazz concert at a park.
Tend to wonder about bookstores, art galleries, have traveled for great exhibits, and listen to NPR. Member of independent and foreign movies clubs, I attend live performances regularly. You express some interests in the arts and enjoy sharing your thoughts after a show.
Very creative, I like to conceptualize and create.
Volunteering and giving back to the community is also very important to me: "Work" at the homeless shelter in the winter, volunteer at Habitat for Humanity in the summer and work the San Jose Jazz Festival for 3 days in the summer.
I enjoy a good glass of wine, sharing long conversations and by cuddling the fireplace, the ocean... the mountains, I would consider myself adventurous and down to earth, (I enjoy working on my garden, my vegetable, fruit trees, and roses), I know when to take the time to daydream, enjoy the outdoors and smell the roses. I like to take long walks with my dog, I am a casual hiker, I used to be an avid downhill skier and passionate sailor, thrill seeker with white water rafting, and presently, I am recreational golfer.
Because of my international upbringing and my travels, I am looking for a long-term relationship with someone who enjoys traveling, may have lived abroad; [sorry, no Mil staff members]. You may speak more than one language, you are happy, outgoing, classy, fun, educated, artsy, honest, and most importantly, looking for a genuine monogamous LT relationship.
