A friend of mine once described me as a "bona fide original" in the way that I approach interpersonal relationships, as I rarely act within the boundaries and constraints of conventions / rules, especially when it comes to dating. The quality that I would most appreciate in a relationship is honest communication with no game-playing.
I spend a good amount of my time in search of sensory pleasures... visual (fine arts, architecture, interior decoration, dance), auditory (classical and jazz music, beautiful languages), olfactory (fresh cut grass, spring blossoms, lavender fields in Provence, Bvlgari Th? Blanc perfume), gustatory (foie gras that melts in your mouth, the combination of a good bordeaux and aged goat cheese on your palate) and tactile (enough said)...
New York and Paris are my favorite cities, but I am open to exploring other places in which to live and work, as I believe that one can create one's own microcosm / haven / oasis in any city as long as one has a rich inner life and is comfortable in one's own skin.
I am looking forward to sharing life's many adventures with an open-minded, well-traveled, authentic and mature man who also enjoys languages, music and epicurean pleasures!
