Date a man from California, United States. You must admit, this is not easy, right? For who knows until weвЂ™re sitting next to each other if a lovely wildfire might ignite? Hopefully of course it will. And if it does...beyond that fire, we both want to get it right this time - at least I know I do. It goes without saying that chemistry comes first, but chemistry will get a couple only past the honeymoon phase, whether that is three months or three years. My goal is for this to last until the twelfth of never...and beyond.
So my hope is that you will want both a romantic match and a practical one - passion to the nth degree plus the truest of true loves; that is my idea, my ideal, and my overriding goal.
To me, deep, secure, joyful, ecstatic, adoring long-term happiness must also be found beyond the flickering fireplace, the snuggling on rainy nights, the transporting travel adventures...and beyond everything being deliriously wonderful in bed...which for a lady of mine is pretty much a given assuming there is a wild initial spark, since for me the lady's feelings and senses come first; if she enjoys herself, I will match her sigh for sigh. And the result will be magical for us both.
Now let's be honest, or let me be. On the passion side, I enjoy a lady who is not only attractive (sorry, a bit spoiled in this regard), but who sparkles and glows with or without makeup and heels, but who doesn't mind wearing them to the nines on a special night out, or on the occasional Saturday nite at home. (I accept that some of you will stop reading now; oh well.)
Also, I'd love a lady who knows her own body and how to enjoy it, and who truly likes men as a whole despite our many shortcomings. (Brothers are helpful in this regard.) This probably means you haven't been married to the same guy forever. Again, apologies, but hey - up front here, or trying to be.
On the long-term side, I do ask for all the basics everyone wants: honesty, responsibility, trust and a kind heart. I will be an equal partner financially both now and when I retire ($3,700/mo. lifetime take-home plus lifetime bennies). Sorry, I can't be anyone's sugar daddy. (Unless I sell a screenplay or novel - my main focus now, which won't begin to compare to my adoration for my future partner, who will be real as opposed to that secondary dream I will nevertheless enjoy chasing!)
Also I love classic and current (TOPNOTCH) movies - all genres; I have a DVD and blu-ray collection that is alphabetized and covers an entire wall. Many or most of these are unwatched, as I am waiting to share them with the girl of my dreams snuggling next to me as the story unfolds. So until then I will mostly read. And write. Hopefully if you love being with me, it will be due partly to our lively celebrations and discussions of films, authors, family and the wide, wide world! (See profile for details.)
A higher education in my partner would be nice too, but that said, I worked for my idol, David Lean, who never made it beyond high school. So basic smarts plus a true sense of cool could very well do it. And if you have a past, well...so do I.
Although my kids are not perfect, I do adore them; if you have children too, I'm hopeful you can relate. And will permit them to be a minor part of our life together; mine are very much on their own. Likewise, if you have kids I will embrace them assuming they will let me. And they probably will.
Meet men and women from California, United States. I currently live in a mountain community of 14K near Lake Tahoe. I moved here from the bay area in early 2011 and have never regreted the decision. I'd love to find a lady to share my good fortune, and I want to share hers as well.
If you like mountains and trees, blue skies, camping, hiking, fishing, concerts, bazaars, art shows, fine restuarants, warm summer days on the deck, cold winter nights by the blazing fire, sightseeing, travel both local and distant, lake beaches, kayaking, plays, casino celebrity shows, hot tubing, horseback riding, skiing, snowshoeing and snow shoveling(ha!), then this is what my new home has to offer.
I'd like to hear from you and what we can share, the things that you like to do. We can share time and location, so let's talk and see where it goes. I am flexible and looking for fun.....Petey

Meet men and women from United States. I'm looking first to find a friend and go on from there ! I am sure there's someone out there that has the same ideas as I do, looking for that someone special. I'm not into games or drama etc, I don't really have time for all that but would like to spend time getting to know the person. Two way conversations works best for me ! How about it, are you into two way conversations ?
Date people from United States. I am an easy going liberal professional father with one son visiting me on weekends and the other away at college. I love my sons and my business. Yoga has brought me a great deal of inner peace and strength. I exercise often and try to eat mostly natural foods especially vegetarian in the last few years. I am in good shape and good health. I am a very positive person and believe life is good and has a purpose even tho I don't fully understand it. I am a volunteer cook at the Petaluma Kitchen and it is one of my favorite activities of the week. I am also a mentor for a Junior High School student in Petaluma. I attend weekly yoga meditation and chanting evenings in SF and look forward to them. My partner, companion, friend, lover, should be positive, healthy, professional able to laugh and have fun doing simple things such as a trip to the ocean or great dinner in SF. She should like hugging, kissing, and all kinds of physical expressions of affection and love. If she liked the movie,"What the Bleep" that is good but not necessary. I do like teachers, artists and creative women. I like a woman who keeps herself looking young and good looking in appearance but not fanatic about her looks. I would like her to have faith in goodness and love and/or faith in God as I do. She needs to be independent from any strict religious organization. She needs to be her own person. Hey that's enough of that!!
Meet someone special from United States. I was raised in a traditional East Coast environment and educated in the Midwest. My Dad was an old time country veterinarian and we had a farm where we raised horses and dogs. I later lived/worked in Manhattan (NYC), Idaho, Texas and now here on the beach in Del Mar. I have a super son (picture) who is loyal, thoughtful and successful. But best of all, he still periodically hugs me and says "I love you" or "Thanks for everything" (could hear it more often!). I have a large circle of valued long time friends and like to have get-togethers. They mostly describe me as thoughtful, honest, sensitive and an unconditional friend. I love to cook and entertain my friends, particularly beach barbecues. I believe in the philosophy that words are cheap and the best way to judge someone is to see if they walk the talk, particularly, on this venue.. If we ever meet, I think you will be quite glad we did whether the "sparks fly" or not.
My match and I will share the trait of "unconditionality" in our relationship in the areas of love, trust, fidelity, reliability and honesty. We both are very selective and are limited participants on this venue. I really respect and appreciate someone who is respectful and nice to people such as waiters, clerks etc. Someone who can respect and accept the feelings of others, not judge them right or wrong. I most admire someone who stays in shape and has pride in her appearance. It's important that she values family and wants a harmonious relationship among everybody, not just us.
It is important to me to be liked and respected by someone's kids since I look at a woman with kids as a "package" and potential "plus". I would hope that I have the opportunity to earn their support and friendship if they see I make their mother happy.
My pictures are recent and so should yours be - only fair, right?. Thanks for reading my profile and I wish you well.
