My self-summary
I am French and I have been living in Barcelona for 15 years.
Introvert, shameless, passionate, guarded, thoughtful, silly, I am and I like a lot of conflicting things, and it's the tension between those things that I find interesting.
I am in a committed, happy and open relationship. To me, it's impossible, and not desirable, to be everything to someone, or to expect everything from someone. Freedom, respect, honesty... It's worth it.

After answering some questions on guns, my personnality tab now says that I am aggressive... When I was younger I competed in 22-long rifle shooting, I loved it and there was nothing violent about it. I eventually left my club because there were too many right-wing nuts, but not all clubs are like that.

I also answered that I would like to try hunting. Well we eat animals, why not kill them in person instead of letting the food industry torture them in small cages, feed them crap and antibiotics and present them to us in nice little packages. We are so far removed from reality.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from a business school, but this line of work really wasn't for me. I have been a freelance translator for 12 years, and absolutely loving it.

I like to meet new people and let myself be influenced by what I like in them. And I like to learn, to absorb concepts. I can never remember dates and names but I like to add fuzzy pieces of knowledge to the big messy canvas that makes up my vision of the world.

I live near the beach, but I rarely go in the summer. I am not the outdoorsy type, although I really enjoy hiking once in a while. I also enjoy yoga.

Lately I am exploring meditation and consciousness, and it's a lot more interesting and far-reaching than I used to think. Wow.
I’m really good at
My job. I love it so much. I get to explore a ton of different subjects. I refuse to specialize, it would get boring.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am a bloody nice person, polite and sensible. Yes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: historic novels, short stories, essays, Boris Vian, Saramago, Murakami, Monzó, Ursula K. Le Guin.

Movies: science fiction, big showy special effects, fantasy, and practically anything else, interested in Asian cinema but no clue about it. I adore Jacques Audiard's movies even though he's a pretentious prick, and I like Haneke's movies because he's a pretentious prick.

Some TV series, although lately I'm cutting down on this time-waster. Will never say no to Broad City, though.

I refuse to watch stuff that is dubbed, and I don't own a TV set.

Music: a lot of classical, lyrical, baroque, string quartets, madrigals, what have you. I love love love that.
Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald, very different but complementary in my mind.
Anouar Brahem
Ali Farka Touré
Electronic music

Food: e-ve-ry-thing.
The six things I could never do without
Internet, fruit, wiggle room, 8 hours sleep, nail polish on my toes, personal space.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How government would be so much better in so many ways if politicians were just appointed at random. Sortition, anyone???

How come movies that could be so good end up being so stupid.

In a war or any similar hairy situation, would I rise to the occasion, or choose safety and submit ?
You should message me if
You're ok with the fact that I am already in a relationship.
You practice openness, honesty, dialogue, respect.
You understand what feminism, patriarchy and privileges are.
You love being sensual, intellectual and physical, not just for the sake of it, but if and when there's a spark.
