My self-summary
January 2017 ------ Une version française suit

It is not always easy to describe in words something which is as intuitive as finding what we are looking for. However, in an attempt to bring some clarity, I will post the following: I'm looking for an intelligent, strong, adventurous, attractive man in good shape for an ongoing relationship. Something serious and enduring, but not constrictive. Something not just physical, but definitely not platonic.

I understand that it is ambitious and asking for a lot. But although some are non negotiable, a 60 percent average might work. In the end, what do you have to lose?

I already have a great life, but I am convinced that with the right partner in crime it could be even better. Therefore, I am looking for a kind and loving man who has a positive outlook on life, multiple interests (preferably in line with mine) and who will be able to keep up with me :).
Ah! Comment décrire en quelques mots quelque chose d'aussi intuitif que ce que l'on recherche exactement. Cependant, dans le but de clarifier les choses, je dirais ceci: je recherche un homme intelligent, éduqué, courageux, beau (à mes yeux), en bonne forme physique et émotionelle pour une relation sérieuse. Pas une aventure d'un soir ou d'un mois mais quelque chose à long terme sans pour autant être contraignant.

Je réalise que c'est peut-être beaucoup demander aussi même si certaines de ces qualités sont des incontournables je vais viser une bonne moyenne d' environ six sur dix. Tentez toujours votre chance.! Vous n'avez pas grand chose à perdre et tout à gagner.

J'aime ma vie mais je suis convaincue qu'avec la bonne personne elle pourrait être encore plus belle. Aussi, je suis à la recherche de ce compagnon généreux et aimant, amoureux de la vie et aux multiples intérêts et passions préférablement en liens avec les miens.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently at a crossroad between (semi?) retirement that I just started and my next adventure or undertaking and between Ontario and Quebec where I still have strong connections.
Je suis actuellement à la croisée des chemins je viens tout juste de prendre ma (semi?) retraite et je me questionne sur la prochaine étape ainsi qu'entre le Québec et l'Ontario où j'ai encore des attaches.
I’m really good at
Analyzing and interpreting data but in the day to day (not so much anymore but the skill is still there), helping others, organizing a supper or anything else, cooking.

If someone was to ask me what makes me happy and/or what I am longing for, I would say simple things like waking up and lingering in bed preferably with my significant other, a great cup of coffee with one (or two) croissant(s), my Pilates classes, a warm shower (together?), a walk on the beach or in the park (I live close by), and last but not least spending time with my children. I am the proud mother of two beautiful and smart young adults (a girl and a boy) and I have a wonderful son-in-law that I consider as my own son. Spending time with them is always a pleasure. In addition, I am now the grand mother of a happy go lucky little guy who knows how to be the centre of attention!
The first things people usually notice about me
I am always on the go and people notice my level of energy, my great curiosity and my spontaneity. They also notice my youthfulness, my smile and the twinkles in my eyes as well as a certain sense of style. I laugh easily and I am told that it is contagious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Parmi mes multiples intérets (la liste est longue) je veux nommer:
Les arts et les événements culturels sous toutes leurs formes (ou presque).
L'activité physique comme le Pilates (que je pratique plusieurs fois par semaine), le yoga, la marche et la randonnée pédestre.
Les arts de la table et les cuisines du monde.

I love all art forms, and attend various cultural events: exhibitions, concerts, shows, films, lectures, festivals, etc. on a very regular basis. The gym is not my thing but I keep active and expect the same in return. I enjoy Pilates that I practice 4 to 5 times a week.

My work requires a significant amount of reading (mainly research and studies) so I tend to keep novels for when I am on vacation. When I start a good book, I have the tendency of not being able to put it down!

In the music department, I am quite eclectic and love smooth Jazz (including Latin jazz, Bossa nova, big bands) and blues, the great French singers like Brel, Brassens, Barbara (this is just for the letter B :-)).
Six things I could never do without
A good cup of coffee and great food (without really being a foody)
Pilates and being active and in contact with my environment
Favorite books, music and films (that count for arts in general)
Feeling useful and appreciated
Love, physical and emotional intimacy and a sense of belonging
Hope and inspiration

Although I couldn't include friends and loved ones as they are really not things, it's not much a list of things after all as I am not very materialistic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about my future and what I want to do. This would most likely include some community work and even international work as well as enjoying all art forms and some contact with nature like walks on a trail or a beach.

Not decided yet if I want to relocate and where. First, I need to find this special companion to share all that with as he will have his say in these plans.
Honestly, I would love to close my profile and leave this site. So maybe, or should I say certainly, one of you gentlemen can help me realize my dream... isn't it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling at home
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's talk about it when we meet...
You should message me if
If you are emotionally available and crave the closeness of a long-term relationship on top of living close to me, I am interested in meeting you and in seeing how far it can go.

If you have carefully read all the info posted above and sincerely believe there is a good chance for us to get along. :)

Still reading and interested! Please send me a message on what piqued your interest and note that I don't respond to messages from South of the border nor to Hey sexy or Hello beautiful. You should definitely know better!
The two of us
