Date men and women from United States / California, 57 year old

Date someone special from California, United States. Work real hard, play real hard, help people. That is basically my approach. I am a partner in a large law firm and work a lot of hours. It's hard, and it's fun. When I'm off work, I want to enjoy life: could be a reggae concert, could be a blues bar, could be a pub crawl, could be a fancy meal at a fine restaurant, could be a classic and simple home cooked meal, could be a Lakers or Clippers or Kings game, could be a symphony or the opera or the recent exhibit at LACMA, could be a stroll in the neighborhood with my precious yellow lab dog, could be discussing the debt ceiling and entitlement payments. I also want to help others less fortunate: "to those who much is provided, much is expected." I go on Habitat for Humanity trips to Guatemala, Honduras, and East Africa and build a home with a local family in the country. I go to orphanages and volunteer; was in Nepal at one, was in Haiti at another. And I am looking to adopt one or two orphan children from overseas.
I'm looking for someone who would be comfortable at a large formal meeting of lawyers and businesspersons, who also would be good sitting at home in front of the big screen watching D. Wade feed LeBron late in the fourth quarter, who also is spiritual, who also wants a deep, loving, romantic relationship, and who also would enjoy helping folks who need a helping hand. If that person looked great in heels, might be open to adopting kids, and liked an occassional martini, we could have something . . .

Meet a soulmate from California, United States. One day while I was preparing to photograph a very rare species of hummingbird, I was sitting with the hot sun on my back for hours, waiting for the exact right moment to capture the perfect image. I watched, amazed as a small flock fluttered around one particular feeder that had run dry. Still they persisted in their useless attachment to that feeder. Was it determination, loyalty, or just blind hope that their needs would be met? As I sat, silent and still, I thought I am like those birds, here on MATCH, hoping that with that same persistence, and with the right words, photos and timing, I may have a chance of capturing the heart of just one amazing woman.
When I am not pursing my photography, I am a chef at a well known restaurant in the desert. There is a lot of satisfaction in seeing my guest’s enjoyment of the food I prepare. I take a lot of pride in providing an exceptional experience for everyone. Of course, the hours are demanding, but I have time in my life for everything that is important to me, like my two children and someone I care for.
I don’t know what you will look like, or sound like, but I do know you will be like that rare precious bird I photographed. All your mysterious femininity will enchant and compel me to be my very best self for you.
I hope that like that feeder, I have drawn you a little closer… made you just a bit curious. But this time there is sustenance waiting for you. Please take a moment to send me an email and tell me a bit about yourself. I promise I will respond. Even though at times, like a toy Transformer, I can be a bit wild, it will take your special touch to flip that switch.
All my photos are current,all taken in 2010.
PS: After a few mail exchanges,I'd rather meet you face to face with my own feelings. I don't want to create an image of you from reading your mails.

Date single man from California, United States. First and foremost many thanks for taking the
time to read my profile. I'm really
new at this, so my heart is filled with "mixed" emotions. Its extremely hard for me to write about myself, really! I grew up in the South Bay area in which my family always provided love as our foundation. This love that I've been the recepient of has transcended me through my life and has served as a great foundation in which I gladly pass on to my daughters!
I've worked in the retail industry for the past twenty some years. During that time this field of work has kept me well-grounded and humble in the way I view things. In a Management capacity, I've had the opportunity to work in different areas in the greater Los Angeles area.
Each store that I've been transfered to, I've seen alot of diversity and cultures. To this day it still fascinates me! The thing that I've learned from my experiences is that its not the "color of the skin" but instead the "texture of the heart" that makes the person special.
I currently work for a Sporting Goods store in the San Gabriel Valley. Because of the industry that I'm affiliated with, fitness is first and foremost in my daily and weekly regement. Any type of activity that includes the sun really
works for me!
My soul mate that I'm looking for must above and beyond love God, herself, and most importantly others. Communication and chemistry are big issues in the dating arena. Chivalry is a big part of my game. I truly enjoy treating a lady the way she should be treated! A big part of my arsenal is humor. My humor can be categorized as "dry"!
I wish all of you nothing but the best in your search for love! Everyone deserves it especially you. Stay healthy and safe in all you do in 2012! Take care!

Date people from California, United States. I am a layed back,quiet person. I like a party but I am not the life of the party. I have a fifteen year old daughter who I adore and love to spend time with. I enjoy life but I enjoy it more when I have someone to share it with. I like to be active but I also like to stay home and hold that special someone. I am trustworthy, honest and loyal and would need those qualities in someone I'm in a relationship with.

Meet men and women from California, United States. I am an active individual living in San Diego and enjoying its offerings. I have a passion for life and strive to live that way! I live a quiet life and attempting to see if there are any like-minded to meet.
I’ve been single for six plus years after a fifteen year marriage………….resulting in divorce and an annulment……….after realizing together that two may love each other, but that wasn’t enough as we just didn’t connect enough in the category of “being in love.” A lesson well learned as I go forward.
I have reached out to a few whose profiles are delightful and give me a purpose to continue searching.michaelmthreethreeeightfiveaty

Date someone special from United States. very handsome being smiled at makes me smile grateful for my children some one to share all the good and bad in life. love to be outdoors and love animals not much of a social life i like to keep to myself

Meet a soulmate from United States. I tend to be more laid back and easy going. I love national parks and traveling in general. Though I enjoy going out and about (museums, movies, an occasional baseball game, and so on), I also love to cuddle up and watch a good video at home. When possible, I like to take advantage of special events, whether it involves a unique speaker or art exhibit, New England in the fall, poppies blooming in the spring, or an annual meteor shower on a warm dark night.
Though I exercise daily at the gym or on a stationary bike at home, I prefer to get my exercise on the tennis court when possible, or hiking in the nearby hills. A couple of my hobbies include writing and photography. I believe in treating other people well even if I’m not feeling my best. Actions matter.
I wish to connect with a woman who likes to experience new things, is kind, enjoys traveling, values and appreciates her own life as well as the world around us, is grateful for the opportunities we have, and who desires to love and share on a deep level.

Date single man from United States. All i know is that everybody needs someone to share with. I am an average guy maybe a little shy but nice and mellow. Yes i work 5 days a week as a telecom tech. I used to have my own business in L.A.but moved to Ventura to get away from the stress and traffic. Also to raise my son as a single divorced dad. Now that he has moved i find myself with a void in my life. I only drink socially and don't care for the bar scene.So i find it difficult to meet women. The on line dating scene is new to me , but im willing to give it a try. If you like to walk the dog on the beach,watch the sunset hold hands and enjoy each others company then let me here from you .I dream about getting love back in my life i feel that its an essential ingredient in the buffet of life.

Meet a man from United States. UPDATE: My membership expired 4/4/12. It's scary how fast a year can pass with no relationship developing. I want one. But I really don't think may women I've dated do. Most are still posted and available; some for several years. While I'm looking to pair up permanently with a great woman possessing some common interests, life on my own is busy at the moment. I'm spending a lot of time tending to important obligations; and also at the gym changing my fitness. I may return. I may not. I haven't decided.
I live in Agoura Hills, inside L.A. County, near Ventura County. I'm an Irish Catholic in search of fun and marriage. I'm a committed father to a sweet married daughter age 25; an interested/sympathetic brother and uncle within a close fun-loving often in-touch family; an ambitious self-employed man with integrity; doing ok; in constant pursuit of advancement; a stable townhouse owner; an active athletic guy who enjoys the gym, golf, all sports and the outdoors; a helpful long-time friend to many; a clean cut guy who stays positive and has goals; tries to be neat and organized; an imperfect but decent man who knows where he's headed, plans to achieve more than he has and hopes to find a female "partner" to enjoy and share the ride; simple but intelligent; discerning; no-nonsense but compassionate; listens; keeps promises to himself and others; tries to stay humble and be the best he can be; a steady work in progress.
The lady I'm looking for will fit my eye as I will hers. She knows her own mind because she's decided what she wants. She's completely over all past relationships and ready for something great and permanent. She wants a highly prioritized relationship leading to marriage. She's fun, classy, smart and responsible. There's truth in her intentions and words; honesty and appeal in her smile. She shares some of my interests. She'll recognize my imperfection but see my quality; as I will hers. She'll learn my few "buttons" while I'm learning hers and we'll take care of each other by not pushing them because that's what bright and loving people do. She'll help me. I'll help her. She'll be my everyday family and I'll be hers. We'll be friends/partners in every way; decide what we want; then make it happen. Together, we'll be our best and make no more excuses. Years from now, we'll look back at our life together, look at each other, then quietly smile. We'll leave a legacy built on commitment and love.

Date people from United States. I pretty much wake up every morning with a smile, eager to greet the day. It would be so much
better if I had someone special in my life to share fun and adventure. I'm relaxed, easy going,
and tend not to get excited, unless the earth is falling away from my feet, as in an earthquake,
then I might jump into your arms. I was a writer, producer, director in advertising for many years.
I wrote, and produced many Clio award-winning commercials, for television, and radio, before I
discovered my passion for architectural design. I help make dreams come true for varied clients.
I started playing drums at age eight, in Chicago, my hometown, where I started playing rock, blues,
and jazz, with some world famous jazz musicians, and still do today, just for fun. You may often find
me performing at an open mike jazz joint or just soakin' up the sounds at the Hollywood Bowl.
So..."Accentuate The Positive, Eliminate The Negative, Latch On To The Affirmative, And Don't Mess
With Mister-In-Between." (My favorite lyrics by Johnny Mercer)
I'm an up close and personal kind of guy and prefer a meet 'n greet, if you want to strike a match.
NO PHOTO / NO REPLY

Meet men and women from United States. I am a man that likes keeping busy, works hard
and does not want anything given to me. I enjoy
showing affection, opening doors, and pulling a
chair to seat the lady I am with. I enjoy the outdoors
fishing, swimming,BBQing, working around the yard.
Love to cook and know my way around a kitchen.
My match would be a mature woman that is not
afraid to be herself. She would embrace having
tender moments, likes to cuddle, and believes that
kisses should be long, deep, soft and last forever.
