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.
My foreign accent.
NPR shows: Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers, Peter Sagal, Karl Cassel. You won't find me any close to heavy metal music.
My favorite book is always the one I cannot put down.
Movies: I enjoy independent and foreign movies.
Love to cook, good lamb dishes and fresh oysters. Farmers markets, summer BBQs, oysters farms, good wine and champagne to pop on any good reason to celebrate.
