I'm a Canadian who moved permanently to London several years ago. I try to follow a holistic approach for a balance between mind, body and soul. For the mind, I attend international development and geopolitical think tank events, give speeches and enjoy insightful conversations. For the body, I play beach volleyball in the summers and snowboard in the winters. For the soul, I enjoy playing music, dance, mixing drinks and all types of music including deep house/trance, R&B, 80's and rock.
I click most with internationals with professional front-end careers, value health and sport, and enjoy going to parks, festivals and beaches. Having a broad knowledge of the world, insightful conversation and a philanthropic edge is important. For dating, a nice smile, sharp eyebrows and bright dresses/heels are always good, and a tattoo or two looks sharp.
I'm in Chalk Farm/Camden for now, and prefer meeting someone who lives nearby in zones 1 to 3 north of the river or someone who can meet in those areas when going out.
Take the Eurostar across to Paris for an overnight of drinks and dance.. but not on the first date. For a first, have a drink with lots of eye contact followed by a festival or dancing to see whether we have strong chemistry.
