Date someone special from Lagunitas, United States. Although I hang out in the redwoods of west Marin, I love France, I'm crazy about Paris and I try to speak french with a parisian accent using parisian slang. I started exploring wine country in France at the age of twenty. I spent the next summer taking theatre classes at the Sorbonne University in Paris. While working in the wine business here in California keeps me working mostly with wines from California, I'm passionate about french wines. I love to travel in France and have extensively visited all the wine producing regions there. "Every man has two countries: his own and France." - Thomas Jefferson. On a more personal note, I can be quite candid and direct but I've made much progress developing the art of tactfulness and I'd rather be known for kindness and tender compassion. I'm an inveterate romantic and can be quite charming. Other than that, I'd like to get back to practicing my violin more but I can certainly play the blues on my electric guitar. My tastes in music widely vary but virtuoso violin rates very high on the scale.
I'm looking for a woman that will stick around when the going gets tough and knows the power of teamwork. I'm looking for a female complement that balances emotional needs in proper perspective as a couple. Someone committed to a lifetime relationship and is easy to bond with, reciprocal and ready to make an empathic connection . I'm looking more for counter balance than things in common, someone who knows my deficiencies and isn't afraid to frown or make eye contact when I have it coming. I'm looking to explore forever with my mate so good communication skills are a very important goal. And that would include eye contact, countenance and tone of voice.
