Gentlemen, please only write to me if you can conquer this entire text. I only like avid readers, it cannot be helped :) I favor all things classic bordering on old fashioned - old-world art, literature, romance and cuisine. Baking real bread, reading paper books and setting the table with fine china for everyday meals. I am fascinated by antiques, and many of my undertakings involve restoration. My dream project is a cosy historic house with a proper name, some land, a floor to ceiling library and a garden. I am not partial to glamor and show but I do enjoy the finer things in life. Texas has grown on me, but I very much entertain the idea of moving, whether within the US, to Canada or Europe. I miss cool dry summers, proper seasons and having the outdoors to actually enjoy. I left my O&G career about 5 years ago and hope not to have to return to a corporate job; my son is now 18 - that adds up to me being quite free to choose whether I leave Houston or stay. Learning a new language would be an interesting challenge, but it is essential that we are both fluent in a common one to begin with. I prefer live entertainment to movie theaters and watch TV rather selectively - mostly classical films and good BBC period dramas. An elaborate storyline and the sophistication of proper English are more fascinating to me than special effects. Similarly, I enjoy a good conversation without dumbing down my language and only like meaningful correspondence. I have no taste for constant small talk, slang, emojis and textspeak (surely there is no need to mention cursing and crassness). I am not terribly spontaneous and prefer plans made in style. A great homemade meal is better than dining out at a mediocre place, and restaurant ambience does matter. I do not shy away from major social functions, but consider partying through life rather boring. A voyage is great when my company and the destination are right, when traveling by myself I usually pick Russia. I have family there that I love and try to see about twice a year.
