First thing first " if you are looking to have fun , outdoors, arts and interesting conversations do the right thing contact me !"
Have come relatively recently to Vancouver. Grew up in Paris and have been living in different places for work before moving to Vancouver.
Love the outdoors, camping, snowboarding, hiking, arts....
Can talk for ever about food, cooking or my eclectic taste in music ...
Like dancing ...yes I said "like" ...which doesn't necessarily mean that I am good at it!
Laughing and learning everyday, volunteering, , travelling, arts, books, comedies, social justice are also important to me.
Like meeting with people of different origins, learning about different paths of life, different cultures....
People who try to make the world a better place quietly with simple acts of kindness or perform their everyday job with the spirit of service have always struck a chord with me.
Not interested in endless emails
Also no profile picture no answer ...sorry!
Message me if you these quotes resonate with you and would like to have a relaxed conversation!
The diversity of colors in a rose-garden adds to the charm and beauty of the scene as variety enhances unity.....
The happiness and greatness, the rank and station, the pleasure and peace, of an individual have never consisted in his personal wealth, but rather in his excellent character, his high resolve, the breadth of his learning, and his ability to solve difficult problems ...
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Aim for service and success will follow.
You are what you eat!
A man’s life is interesting primarily when he has failed–I well know. For it’s a sign that he tried to surpass himself.
The only difference between reality and fiction,
is that fiction needs to be credible.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
A ship in harbor is safe -- but that is not what ships are built for.

It is not impossibilities which fill us with the deepest despair but possibilities which we have failed to realize.
The edge is the safest place to be during times of uncertainty.
Always reserve the right to laugh the day after at your ideas of the day before

There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: in our home and in Paris.
For most non anglo-saxons, there is no equivalent to the word "dating" in their mother tongue.
Wikipedia explains "Dating is a form of courtship, and may include any social activity undertaken by, typically, two persons with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse. The word refers to the act of meeting and engaging in some mutually agreed upon social activity. Traditional dating activities include entertainment or a meal."
For me, authentic friendship is a sine qua non condition before becoming a couple and therefore antinomic with anything related to a date. In Paris, one can invite a person that one has just met in the street for a coffee and it doesn't mean that they are on a "date". There is no commitment of any sort .There is not this pressure that goes with a date. In North America in particular, dare to invite someone for a coffee and it is as if you were asking her out... Men and women interactions are codified as "dates" or non "dates".... I find it very restrictive. Can't we all enjoy a casual conversation with the opposite sex over a coffee without having to use the D word?
Anyway coffee or a tea? or a walk in the park .... Is just a coffee or tea and a bit of conversation, a bit of friendship a time to be truly oneself, with one's flaws, no pressure.... a much more efficient and genuine way to get to know someone than to exchange endless emails.
