I´ve lived in three continents, 7 countries and 12 cities and for the the time being I´ve posed my hat here in this sunny city.
I'm a creative, intelligent woman with a very inquisitive mind and many passions. I'm looking for a relationship (not the friends-with-bennefits kind).
I do want respect, laughter and a healthy exchange of ideas.
Books: Anything by Arturo Perez Reverte (i.e. The Dumas Club, The painter of the battles), Mario Vargas Llosa (La fiesta del Chivo, Pantaleon y las visitadoras), Shakespeare (mostly the comedies and then some tragedies... My all time favorite are a Mid-summer's night dream, The Taming of the Shrew and The Tempest), Julia Navarro (excellent contemporary fiction spanish writer), Katherine Pancol and Guillame Musso (French fiction writers), Ruiz-Zafon's The Angel's game and the Shadow of the Wind... I also enjoy "chick-lit" authors such as Sophie Kinsella and Jane Greer.
Movies: I prefer British and French Cinema but I also love Almodovar and Woody Allen. Favorite flicks include: The King's Speech, Casablanca, It's a Wonderful Life, Melancholia, Chocolate, Notting Hill, Love Actually and anything that stars Juliette Binoche, Meryl Streep and Colin Firth.
Favorite shows of all time include: Downtown Abbey, Work of Art (on Bravo), Inside the Actors Studio, The Monarch of the Glen, Masterpiece Theatre and Friends.
Music: Being it one of my greatest passions, I have very eclectic tastes: Scottish traditional country dancing music (it is not all bagpipes!), Tango (Piazolla and Gardel), 80s pop (Madonna and ABBA, Classical music specially Mozart, Chopin, Bach, Telemann, Lully, and then I ADORE Mexican Mariachi music and Boleros (such as Quiereme mucho, Jurame, Ella, Volver, etc etc and a even longer of etc...
Finally (yes! if you are still reading this part of my profile is either because you are a very curious chap or because we share some interests!)... Food! Living in France it is obvious that one of my favorite foods is French tradional cooking (specially the bread, wine and cheeses). I also love Mexican food (VERY spicy and not at all TEX-MEX), Indian food (should I say more? Spicy Tandoori curry... rice), Thai and indonesian food, and of course TAPAS, tequila and pasta!
I love men who are tall and posses a higher education background. A PHD degree in my book is the best aphrodisiac! and if such a man exists who also owns a passport and has a sense of humour... he would be a keeper!
-if you're French.
-If you you're an English native speaker or close to it.
-if you are looking for something more than a one night stand.
DO NOT MESSAGE IF
-You are married.
-You don't have a recent picture of you on your profile.
-You are one of those scammers who wants me to be a mother to your non-existent children. You cry that you´re a widower and you think Im desperate to be someone else´s mom. It hasn't worked in the past and no, it won't work now. MOVE ON.
-if you live in USA but you think we can be Internet lovers. it is dumb. it won't work... and 9 out of 10 times it's really a scam!!!!!!!
DON'T WASTE MY TIME.
