There is a consensus (not solely shared by my mother ;-) that I would make a great husband and father. Although both are still eluding me despite my latest 10 year attempt, and my conception of matchmaking would be better suited for the Victorian era, I am quite hopeful that modern technology can help remedy this puzzling conundrum.
Born and raised in France and the product of a happy childhood, solid family and traditional education, I've lived mostly in LA since university, while maintaining strong ties to my family and friends in Europe. I highly value intelligence, genuineness and moral principles grounded in logic rather than dogma. Some may mistake my wit for sarcasm, my strong opinion for pervicaciousness and my propensity to dialectics for argumentativeness: Au contraire! An inherent curiosity animates me and travel and business ventures are my main outlets. I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane on my 30th birthday, ran my first marathon on my 35th and climbed Kilimanjaro with my brother and sister for my 40th. It turns out that this year the California half-ironman fell on the day of my 42nd: Enough said! My business ventures are designed to free me from time and location constraints so I can pursue my interests with a carpe diem attitude. I'm currently working on developing a brand of custom-made denim in Los Angeles, "producing" a 90ies musical in NYC and a vintage nautical import business in France, among other ventures, but my priority is most definitely starting a family.
I do not lead an ordinary lifestyle so I am looking for an extra-ordinary person to share the journey. You are good-hearted, like the people you choose to surround yourself with. You are smart yet functional, sophisticated without being a snob. You live by the adage mens sana in copore sano. You abhor superficiality, reject conformity and refuse to be bored. You're excited by life, pursue your dreams with passion and exude positive energy. Like everyone you have a few insecurities, but nothing a supportive partner can't help you surmount, and definitely free from addictions, life anxieties, tattoos ... You've loved, you've been loved but the idealist in you still believe it is possible to find true love and now you are ready for it.
