Date single man from California, United States. I grew up in a small city in the midwest and never really thought it was for me. So I've spent all my time since college trying to see as much of the world as possible, and I've never looked back. I've been in LA about 12 years, but have lived in many countries and cites around the world. I even picked up a couple languages along the way! Big accomplishment for a midwestern boy. My work allows me to travel, so that keeps me from wanting to move all the time.
I design stuff for a living, something my high school guidance counseler neglected to tell me you could do. I've worked in many companies you will have heard of- maybe you even own something I designed! Anyway, it sure is nice to get paid to draw.
I don't have a type. When I look through pictures of ex-girlfriends, I'm amazed at how different they are. Someone with an open mind and a natural curiousity about things would be nice.
Meet people from California, United States. ~ Hello ~
Okay, who saw the movie: Fever Pitch? I sometimes think I'm like Jimmy Fallon in that movie. I mean I'm 41 years old and like the ladies said in that movie, how come he hasn't been married or traquilized yet...lol... Well, the truth is I just haven't found the right woman, so I'm hoping match.com can help me out. Yes, I'm a big Dodgers fan but not as bad as you think. I do have great memories of being there on special occasions, but I'm not there every night or every other night for that matter...lol
I'm looking for a very down to earth girl, who loves life and all it has to offer. I mean one day we might be at Dodger Stadium and the next we might be having spa massages in Palm Springs or maybe even the Carribean. I really like to spice things up when I can.
I know I didn't put my occupation but trust me you have nothing to worry about I do have a career that I do love and enjoy on a daily basis.
If you think you might be the one or just want to hang out and go to a couple of Dodger games, don't be shy, feel free to write to me.
I hope to hear from you soon..

Meet someone special from California, United States. I'd say I'm an intelligent, caring, athletic guy, happy at my core and optimistic by nature. I like being outside, especially near the ocean or mountains. I've travelled quite a bit, I've lived abroad. So far this probably sounds like a jillion other people on the site, which makes me wonder why all the lazy, meat-headed jerks who are mean to old people and puppies must have happily found their special someones. Ha!
Allow me then to elaborate. Born in Argentina, moved around when small (Netherlands, Canada), eventually growing up outside Boston and out here to California for graduate work. I'm humorous, at least when I get enough sleep...which seems to be rare because there is so much to do! I have 2 terrific boys, who for current purposes we shall call "pride" and "joy". I dig my job: biotech research towards developing disease therapies. Beyond that I like so much stuff that I get a bit disappointed that the days are only 24 hours long, or that I need (and like) sleep.
I mess around with photography quite a bit, I used to race piles of triathlons, I love soccer and play on a co-ed team whose members are some of the most caring and cool people I have had the honor to call friends. I like that soccer/futbol has such a global connection...one vacation I talked with our hotel staff and ended up out in the barrios playing 6-a-side in a dusty stadium by car headlight and radio accompaniment, goals rewarded with abuela's ceviche recipe. Definitely the trip highlight.
I like to cook and bake, mostly because I like to eat tasty food. Similarly, I have a garden, mostly because I like to eat tasty, fresh food. And I like that my kids will eat lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and broccoli...dirt and all.
I used to play classical music (horn), but I have more recently taught myself some guitar chords and like to sing for my own amusement...Furr, Gnarls Barkley, Bruce Springsteen, Wilco, Billy Bragg...whatever comes up. I'm pretty sure my versions sound a bit off, so if I do a song for you and you say, "Please. Please, never do that again." I'll be OK, I think...as long as you had the 'please' part in there. My 3 year old skips that and just says "Papa, you're hurting my ears!"
I kind of roll between extrovert and introvert. Definitely have some quieter time and reflection, but I'll hold my own or more if we go out.I have a sentimental streak, a domestic streak, but I've been known to plunge into unknown waters, swim through choppy waves a half kilometer to a barren rock island,and return with bleeding rocky cuts, wondering post-facto about sharks, just to have been there (um, less so since having kids!). So there. That's me, I suppose, at least through this small limited window of a web site. I know who I am, even though a bit disoriented from the surprising and unexpected twirls this rollercoaster ride has taken. Still, the ride doesn't stop!
As for my ideal partner? She's a tall, dynamic, strong, beauty. Her ringlets of hair tumble around her clear eyes as her happy laughter jumps playfully across the room. As she rises, angelic fanfare seems to call from some distant place,as if in thanks from the millions of orphans she saved with the proceeds from her third benefit album which she released just after winning the 100 m freestyle olympic gold and just before receiving the nobel peace prize. Ridiculous, right. I'd feel pretty shoddy next to that anyway. The point is more maybe you won't hear the fanfare, but if our eyes connect just so and your smile creeps onto your face with that undeniable warmth, likely I could hear it for you, orphans or no. And then tell you about how you made it sound.Oh yeah, I also have lots of imagination and creativity. Maybe too much imagination.But I'm not sitting here thinking some so-called soulmate is going to pop out of a genie bottle. It's a process, an adventure, a discovery of the other.

Date single man from United States. Not currently a paying member, but if you would like to contact me I can be found on yahoo with the screen name of dropshot11.
Doing a bit of thinking on this subject of why I am here on Match. I have been divorced for 10 years now and I thoroughly enjoyed being married for even the short time I was. I have lived here in the Coachella Valley for 2 years now and like my time in Tucson, I am enjoying my single life. I am 90% happy about being single. It is that other pesky 10% that I am trying to satisfy. The feeling of knowing that there is someone that cares for me as I do for them. Someone that I enjoy spending time with at night or even during the day on our days off. But still having our own time. Someone to go to dinner with or cook for and discuss our days with each other. And the days/nights we don't get together, we can call if we feel like it. As I said before, I like my life and all that I do, but I would like to be able to share some of my triumphs and tribulations with on occasion. I can't say that I am looking for the "One" because I am not sure who that will be, I know what I am looking for in a partner/friend. And when I meet her, then I will know. I have been in love twice. Both hurt when they ended. But the feeling that I had while I was with them FAR outways the hurt when it ended.
Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled program...........
I am a fairly laid back, hard working professional. I have recently moved to the california desert from the other desert in az. I enjoy the desert area. We could use a bit of rain though!!!! lol. THe area allows me to do the things that I enjoy doing, like playing golf. since I am in the golf business. I have a lot of other interests as well, but I would rather do those with someone rather than alone. ( movies, shows, sporting events)
Although I have not played in a few years, competitively. I am a former tennis pro( playing and teaching) , now I play golf in my spare time. I do enjoy going out with friends for drinks and dinner on occasion. I also enjoy quiet nights at home too.
All my friends come to me when they have a problem and need to talk. So, I am very easy to talk to and I enjoy making people laugh. It is the best medicine. ( so they say)
I hate writing about myself cause I never know what anyone wants to know. So, if you have a question ask me. I will always answer it. One thing I would like to know though. If I contact you, please let me know if you are not interested. I don't want to keep contacting you in some way and bothering you.
As for who or what I am looking for........ Someone with a great smile to along with a good personality. I would like to be with someone who is pretty laid back to. I am fairly quiet overall, so maybe someone who does not mind chatting a bit. I will always listen to what you have to say, even if you tell me the same story 5 times. :D I would prefer someone athletic, you don't have to play golf or tennis, but if you do or want to learn that would be a bonus. I like to cook, but not for one. Have an opinion, but be open to and respect my opinions too.
Thanks and Happy Hunting!!!!!!

Date a soulmate from United States. I enjoy the ocean, but do not like to swim in it. A good cup of coffee and great conversation can be a perfect evening. I can be adventerous or enjoy a rainy day on the couch. Treat others how you want to be treated and you can not go wrong. I have many different sides to myself. I know that everything has a time and place. The professional side, fun and carefree, friends and family, free spirit, adventurous. I am looking to meet that special someone, but if the worst thing to happen is some new friends how bad is that.

Date men and women from United States. Take a look at the profile of an upstanding, outgoing, genuinely nice man who is searching for a woman who is sweet, honest, fun, and energetic. I would love to find someone who believes that there are still good men out here. We do exist. I love children, have strong family values, and I'm goal-oriented. I know what I want in life and will work hard for it. Sharing it with a special someone is what I hope for.
Conversation connects two people, especially when it is open and diverse. It lets you see the inner person that may not show on the outside. If you are a good conversationalist, we can discover what's in our hearts and work towards making life more special for each other.
My match will be active, healthy, and outgoing. She can enjoy warm, sunny beaches as well as a long, quiet ride on horseback. Would you like a road trip to discover a scenic, out-of-the-way place where wildlife makes an appearance to thrill us? How about a hamburger at a sports bar with the San Diego Padres on the TV and good music in the background? Maybe some sushi with cheese and crackers in front of the fireplace when rain pours down outside? If any of this sounds good to you, let's explore the possibilities!
