Date men and women from United States / California / Chico, 53 year old

Date people from California, United States. I am an educator but still working on my “beginner’s mind” - there’s so much more to learn about life and the physical and spiritual universe. Happy that “middle age” means only halfway through this journey..
My 16 year old daughter lives with me part time and is the most important person in my life
I live for the outdoors. I try to stay fit and do some form of exercise almost every day – yoga, bicycle, run, swim, hike, canoe, cross-country ski… I can do “coat and tie” at work, but slip into “tie-dye” after work. OK, maybe sometimes I wear tie-dye at work.
People tell me that I usually have a smile on my face. I have a gentle spirit, goofy at times, contemplative at times, an irreverent sense of humor, and a college degree or two.
I love all music, from all over the world, from Bach to bluegrass. Current rave: Hawaiian. I collect music, see artists as often as possible, love going to festivals. Play a couple instruments, mostly folky stuff.
I’m an environmentalist trying to find ways of living simply and closer to the earth. I’m trying to live a life that is a balance of work and fun, idealism and pragmatism. I have serious responsibilities like a mortgage and a teenager, but think that sometimes life should not be taken too seriously! I Love Chico because I can practice that “yo-ga” between work and fun. Love riding my bike to the ice cream shop, walking downtown and seeing people that I know, buying things locally instead of the big box store.
I think that a real intimate relationship with another human being is the greatest gift we can ever have.
And I know what commitment means.

I do enjoy a lady who is secure enuf to just say what she wants, like "make love to mr baby, or you make me mad when you act like that" Honest communication. Love to spend rainy days in bed with the stereo going, hot drinks, and lots of smiles.

Date men and women from California, United States. I am back after a few months away from Match. This has its limitations for communication. You can't read body language, see smiles or facial expressions, look into someone's eyes, hear voice inflection, etc. But I guess this is just for introductions.
No, my name is not really Larry Harmon (he was a real bozo), but if you tell me your name, I will tell you mine. I love a good sense of humor. I love to laugh and know it is good medicine for whatever ails you.
I am kind of private and am not comfortable revealing alot about myself in the profile. I am looking for a friend who could be become a companion and partner. I love to have fun, to be outdoors, to have pleasant conversation over coffee. I do not drink, but I have no problem with my partner's social drinking. I do not judge. I try to own my mistakes and learn from them.
Life is a fun adventure, and I'd like to find someone to share it with. I like to sleep outside and look at the stars and watch the sunrise. No drama or game playing; just honest communication.
If you would like to know more, please just ask.

Meet a soulmate from California, United States. My membership ends May 25th, and will delete my profile at that time. So I hope we all find what we seek here. Hoping you care to be real, to explore what that means. No games, wanting a real relationship with time shared and enjoyed. Hoping for conversation, along with enjoying a nice BBQ with drinks. Will you be the one that shares a life with me, and annual trips to Mexico together. Maybe time shared, exploring our next adventure of quading the desert of Nevada. Camping out, and enjoying the sun and warmth of summer at the lakes and places in Northern Cal. How about a trip annually to Ixtapa, Mexico, hoping to share that with you. I enjoy a great smile as well as a smile at a big yellow smiley face, as I am here.

Date single man from California, United States. Thank you for taking time to stop by and read this. I love to do my weight training early in the morning, gets my day off to a healthy start and I don't have to wait all day to use the equipment. My best friend convenienced me one day to try cross fit, hooked there now as well. If you haven't given it a try, you should. Have been adding spin classes in on weekends as well (time and other issues allowing). Exercise for me is a way to release, build and enjoy life. Could even call it a lifestyle choice (better than other choices that could be made). Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy ice cream and frozen yogurt, occassional soda's and have a slight sweet tooth (you can get really big bags of M&M's at Costco!).
My daughter's are both grown and live out of the area and I have one granddaughter (in picture).
I work for the Department of Veteran's Affairs, Chico OPC. I enjoy my work and love serving those who have served us (didn't get to stay in myself, but that's another and apparently current on going story!). I have been working there since December 2010. Prior to that (now as work comes in) I did Real Estate Sales (seeing signs of movement now, pehaps this year it will start back).
I'm passionate about life and the future and look forward to meeting someone who see's life in a similar fashion. Someone who is active, fun and wants to be loved and give love. Someone who values togetherness as well as personal space. Someone who wants to grow with the other and is willing to accept differences for what they are. My circle of friends and my family are important to me as yours should be to you. Life is and relationships are about growth, give and take, respect and trust, and letting your heart have a real say. Warm smiles in the morning no matter how one is feeling, gets the day off to the best start!
Like most guys, I enjoy a varity of outdoor activities and also, get a kick out of watching local High School Sports. Not tainted by outside influences like College and Pro teams seem to be. Going to dinner and a movie is always a nice thing to do as well. A walk in the park, nice bike ride, sitting by a creek, all things that relax ones mind and are nice to do together.
I am currently in the divorce process. If you have done so in California, you know what I mean by "process". No ill will or feelings on my part. I don't like bitterness or negativity, only makes you stress and is unhealthy in the end.

Meet someone special from California, United States. I am a proud father of four. I have two children that have graduated from college, and two still in college. I love to do things outdoors such as golfing and fishing as well as hanging out at the lake. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am looking for someone who is 'down to earth' and that also enjoys the same things.

Date people from United States. I am easy going, loyal, reliable and a lot of fun. I am an optimist. I love to laugh and I work very hard. I am a simple man. I have accomplished much in my time, but I know I have so much more to that I could do and experience. I am a cosmopolitan man with eclectic interests. Doing something new is rejuvenating! I love entertaining and great food. The kitchen is among my fortes. Most of all, I value kindness and honesty. I offer the same in return with the disclaimer that I am not anywhere near perfect. But I am willing to work towards what that may be.

Meet a man from United States. Or maybe it's 91,238 by now.
I like to work, eat, sleep, relax, exercise, play music in about equal measure, unfortunately work is the only one that I've found that will pay the bills. As I get older I am less ambitious and appreciative of an uneventful day where I feel that I've made a contribution to something. I love to watch the sun go down on a sunny day.
