Date men and women from California, United States. I love to laugh and have a good time. A healthy sense of humor is a must. I like to eat healthy and exercise regularly. I am a social butterfly. I'm a very loyal friend. My personal relationships are important to me. I catchup over cocktails with friends and coworkers regularly. I like classic and modern art. Food & Wine are my passion.
Meet a soulmate from California, United States. The first kind of girl on Match is independent, secure and just as content to sit at home with Netflix as she is to go out on a date. The other kind is always moaning about being alone and plotting which guy to go after just like an Army general preparing for battle.
I guess IвЂ™m looking for someone who falls somewhere in between...a girl who is not altogether happy being alone but isnвЂ™t on the war path to find her next man either.
Everyone knows what a guy is supposed to want in a girlfriend: a soul mate, a best friend, blah, blah, blah. But I'm going to let you in on some little-known factsвЂ” that most guys would never tell you about. If you don't agree with me on these or think I am a jerk then I understand but hopefully this will give you a little idea about how I really think (and many guys do). Just want to be honest.
DonвЂ™t Leave Me GUESSING
Guessing is fun when it comes to game shows, but Howie Mandel can't help me when IвЂ™m trying to figure out which movie you'd like to see or what you want for your birthday or more importantly, what you're really pissed off about. I know girls all wish we'd just get you enough to figure it out on our own, but the truth is, guys aren't great at reading subtle hints.
Know when itвЂ™s ok to LIE
I want you to be honest with me when it comes to important things, but when it comes to personal things that could be sore spots, like thinking my best friend is hot or hating my mom's cooking, honestly, I'd prefer that you tell a little white lie.
You don't have to pretend to love my hideous new shirt, but you can just say something neutral, like, "It's okay. I like your green one better." I appreciate when girls have the heart not to needlessly hurt my feelings вЂ” because yes, I do have them!
Pick your BATTLES carefully
No relationship is perfect, and no two people are going to agree on everything. A great girlfriend doesn't let her pride stand in the way of letting her guy walk away from a silly argument at least thinking he got his point across (even if you still secretly disagree with me). If you're arguing about something important to you, like your religious beliefs, then stick to your guns.
But little disagreements can snowball into big fights. And nothing is sadder than having a huge fight and breaking up because I think Mad Men rocks and you think it sucks.
Every man wants a woman he can laugh with, so you have to have a good sense of humor. I want a woman who will laugh at my jokes and can make me laugh. And let's face it ladies, every now and then you're going to be the butt of my jokes too (and probably in a public place). When this happens, laugh. Better yet -- fire one right back at me. Please, don't take yourself too seriously.
DonвЂ™t make me CHASE you (too much)
I don't mind being the aggressor in a relationship, but I also don't want to feel like I'm running in circles. I will never understand why some ladies feel the need to ignore calls and turn down dates from guys they're interested in. It doesn't make me more interested, it makes me move on. If you're interested, let me know. Not only is that appreciated, but it's really hot. Who doesn't want to be wanted? Oh, and be obvious, us guys aren't good at taking hints.
Sorry if this sounds blunt but I hope this helps you to know a little more about me and maybe a little more about the sometimes strange, males species.
If my comments have inspired you...made you laugh...made you think, or even made you a little mad...then maybe we have something to chat about..
There is a lot more I could tell you about me....
like...I am a owner of an organic skin care products company...a published author, a gourmet chef, an enthusiastic wine connoisseur, and a serial entrepreneur. I live on the beach in Malibu, into water sports and fitness, love to travel the world, crave exploring and adventure, food is my pleasure, laughter is my medicine, life is my passion.
Date a man from California, United States. Ok, not really, but he did wear really cool pants...
Alright, about me... I moved here several years ago after five years in London and ended up sticking around. Seems to happen to a lot of people around here :-) I'm Canadian, so no English accent here, but I do a pretty good Jamie Oliver and Ali G, if that counts.
I'm pretty active and try to getting outside any chance I get (usually cycling or on the volleyball courts). I'm always up for new random experiences, which generally revolve around food (don't worry, I'm not one of those annoying picture taking yelping foodies), and I'm a notoriously spontaneous last minute traveler... Priceline and I are on a first name basis. I've been lucky enough to go on (and come back from) a lot of crazy trips over the years (Trans-Siberian railway, kayak expedition in Australia, Walmart on Black Friday, etc...), but aside from several overseas trips a year to see friends, I try (and often fail) to stay fairly local these days and enjoy all the fun stuff right here in our own backyard.
So... how about you? Ideally you're athletic, open minded (and opinionated!), you don't freak out at carbs, and when life gives you lemons, you break out the tequila.

Meet people from United States. I'm not great at talking about myself but here it goes, I love the great outdoors weather it be hunting in the woods or camping next to a beautiful mountain lake or just taking some guns up in the hills for some recreational shooting. I love going to the coast hanging around the campfire with friends. I"m into Nascar and Indy racing and old musclecars and hotrods. I enjoy a good roadtrip and would enjoy traveling the US and Europe someday. I like going to the movies or trying a new restaurant. I enjoy bowling or shooting a game of pool or simply relaxing at home with someone special watching tv or a dvd and if all else fails on occasion it's nice to simply relax at home alone with you're thoughts listening to music just be because I believe music sooths the soul. As far as who I'm looking for, I want a girl who knows how to laugh and dosen't take life too seriously yet knows when to be serious. I want a girl who is "girly" but can go camping for a few days without the comforts of home. I don't need a bookworm but want someone I can have a general intelligent conversation with. I like a jeans and t-shirt girl who also likes to dress up sometimes. I like a girl who is playful and a flirt weather we've been together 10 days or 10 years, and ofcourse a cute butt never hurts lol. Put simply I am just hoping to eventually find that one cute, sweet, girl with common interests and goals that is kind and affectionate, patient and understanding who makes me want to finally settle down for good who is understanding of lifes unexpected curveballs like me going from a well paid firefighter to being forced to take a lower paying job and go back to school like so many others due to this terrible economy. I want someone who is willing to stick with her man through the good times and bad.
