Date single man from California, United States. I enjoy traveling to places I've never been and to places I've been that are extraordinary and learning and doing new things. I believe in sharing and compromise. As I've aged I like to think I've gained some wisdom and I listen to any intelligent viewpoint based on facts. A friend once told me I could get the greatest joy from the smallest thing. I prefer to gather more experiences at this point in life, rather than 'things'. I know who I am with my primary strengths being dependable, monogamous, honest and responsible.
I enjoy being outside from working around my house, playing golf, bike rides and even just plain walking. I can be spellbound and gaze at interesting cloud formations. I enjoy the social aspect of playing games from board and card games to golf more than winning. I like to win but also enjoy when others do. I have some liberal views, some conservative views but mainly middle of the road. I wish politicians could get elected if they told the truth, were open-minded and entered into debates of issues with factual arguments.
I've learned to lower the toilet seat. I don't feel ALL other drivers are idiots. I'm probably like many who see a 27 (insert age here) year old looking back at them in mirrors. A smile is never far from my face and I value that same ability in women. I trust a person I meet until or unless they give me a reason not to. I prefer discussions over arguments. I've written enough for this profile. Probably one of the most difficult tasks to perform.

Date a soulmate from California, United States. I am an easy going guy looking for companionship and good times. Looking for an active lady who just enjoys life as it comes. I know there is someone out there for me out there and look forward to finding that special person some day. If you like good conversation, a good meal, and a great time I am the one for you. I feel I have accomplished a lot in life and there are many more things I can yet do. I have worked my entire life so now is the time to play a little and enjoy (within reason) the good things of life. I have a fairly large bucket list and look forward to trying to accomplish what I can while I can.
I am very domesticated (if that is a word). Having been a widower for almost 4 years, I have had to learn to cook for myself, am quite comfortable running the major appliances and cleaning, along with all the normal chores a guy usually has. I love to travel and really like the mountains and the ocean. I have been to Europe many times but still have lots I want to see. I am the outdoor type and love to fish, hunt, and camp. As with most things I like to do, I don't like doing them alone. I am always up for good conversation, am a rather persistent joker and love to make people laugh,I like going to movies, even chick flicks (sigh), or to just stay home with a simple meal, popcorn, and a DVD on the telly. I am very affectionate, and love to spoil my lady. I am not embarrassed as some guys are to show affection in public. I am a little bit taken back in large crowds, but once I get going, look out! Just need to feel out the situation, and am a very good judge of character and people. Something that came to me working with a very diverse workforce in both the military and federal civil service.
I love to go out and eat and try new dishes, whether Italian, Mexican, German, Chinese, etc... I also like to practice my culinary skills in the kitchen trying various ethnic dishes. Most I learned from my dearly departed wife, who was an extraordinary cook. Now deserts I am not so good at. I do eat sensibly and try to follow my doctors advice, like we all do, huh?, don't know what else I can say other then I would like to meet someone who enjoys doing the same things I do, but most of all enjoys life in general, is sweet, thoughtful, strong emotionally, and doesn't take guff from anyone. You are out there, I just know it.

I desire friendship, companionship, laughter, romance, spooning and love. Enjoy cooking and doing it together. Am looking for a genuine, fun/funny, thoughtful, adventurous gal to spend quality time with. Snuggling on the couch watching a movie and walking hand in hand. I love coffee in the morning and watching the sun rise. I love outdoor activities, spending time with family and friends.
I love to travel even if it is day trips to places that I have or have not seen before. I am active and enjoy most anything if it is with the right person. I feel that my life is good and would like to share it with someone special. I also pray she has a firm relationship with god as I do and values of family and friends that I have. Someone that has integrity and respect for themselves and wants to share a relationship that would be simple and fulfilling. I love to be by or in the water. I like to walk and eat right. I've always been told. I look and act younger than I really am. With that being said, I've always been young at heart. After all, isn't age just a number. I find humor in almost every situation. But I am serious when need be. I'm a hopeless romantic looking for that last true love. SoвЂ¦if there is someone out there that is not afraid to show affection, likes to laugh and have fun, and is looking for the same in a relationship letвЂ™s start with coffee and conversation. Are you her?

Date a soulmate from Chico, United States. Outgoing, friendly; single since my thirties and comfortable with my time; however, love to meet people, share outdoors, movies, discussions...it is the companionship with no constraints of the "soul mate" theme; however, compatibility and practicality are important. At a time in life when taking on another's issues/burdens is not in the pages of my book. A good friend I will always nuture even if if distantly....when we meet again, it will be like we never parted.
Some more personal insights:
You are in Chico as am I; that is, I work in Chico, but live about 25 minutes out of town.
I have been single for quite some time; so take note, I am a bit set in my ways, but love to meet new people, discuss new ideas, and enjoy new adventures. I just attended by 45th high school reunion and we had quite the time...we are belligerent and refuse still to accept that we no longer are teenagers, especially when we get together. We are silly and respectable simultaneously, or we think we are; of course the classmate that decided to get in the swimming pool wearing her dress (no available swimsuit) was well received and all went on chatting and thought it made perfect sense..... very practical (and no one was intoxicated!).
I purchased a single, lake kayak last year and am determined to paddle as many lakes this summer as possible. I only work 20 hrs per week so have very long weekends. It is also my substitute for going to the gym....if I could get in the groove, I do enjoy weights and treadmill; but the outdoors is so much more interesting and refereshing. And I will admit I am a bit too voluptuous in the wrong places, (that's my humor) ...just a little fluffy at the moment, but working on less fluff.
I am Native American, local Maidu tribe, and have been very active in public outreach in what I term cultural sensitivity discussions/presentations. Retired from that to refocus on personal goals...kayaking, enjoying the outdoors, research in preparation to write a book on my cultural and family heritage. Have one granddaughter - the love of my life as her grammy. My two children are in new relationships and my son will be married in November and my daughter has a new beau. Both live out of town. My passion is family get togethers, usually bbqs, to get us together as often as possible. Right now planning a camping trip in late July or August.
Hope to hear from you for casual conversation and sharing some time, I must admit I am hesitant to consider anything more serious at this time, but open to the possibilities.
Best wishes in your search.

Meet people from United States. Friends have asked if I'd ever marry again, and I tell them, "I don't know, but I'm never going through another divorce." Given that, this whole process makes me a bit uncomfortable, but I like adventures, so that's how I'm treating this site.
Since divorcing, I've figured it's up to me to make a life I love, and if someone special comes along then it's icing on the cake. Are you up to being my icing? If you are ethical and honorable, fun, like road trips, and staying home, are comfortable with your own life, but would love to share it with someone who is curious, you might be curious about me, too. Most of my closest friends have been married for more than 30 years; two friends are divorced and really get why I don't want to go there again. I believe it takes time to really get to know someone, and I'm willing to put time into this adventure. Although I have been known to feel the need for speed, I am in no hurry to rush through learning who you are and what's important to you. If we are a good fit for each others' lives, we'll figure that out as we go. It might be one e-mail or 'phone call, it might be awhile. Sometimes it's obvious; sometimes it's a journey. If we enjoy each other, I'd like it to be for a long, long time. Wouldn't that be a kick?!
I'm not a fashion plate, or a trophy wife, but I've been told I'm not hard on the eyes, either. If looks are the most important, look elsewhere, because there's a lot more to me than someone to just turn your head. After recently moving, I made an appointment with a dermatologist. He had to check my age because he thought the paperwork was wrong. That's only because I've always believed in good skin lotions, but I liked him right away...I look 'normal' for my age, I think. I lived on the Mendocino Coast for 42 years and after retiring, I've moved to Chico to be near my daughter and her family. Grandchildren are hilarious!!
I don't do drugs, so if that's your interest, reach out to someone else; you wouldn't like me one bit. It's important to be comfortable around people and be able to trust each other, and we wouldn't match well.
I like my fellows like I like my dogs- friendly, loyal, playful, happy, not small or yappy, and not smelly. I do know that a dirty dog can clean up real well, so I know guys can, too. I like being at the beach,a river or a lake, out in the woods or stacking firewood, so I like being casual and comfortable much more than dressing up anymore, but I do like to wear silk.
I like to bake and try new recipes, and am more than willing to learn how to make things you enjoy. I like fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and garlic over pasta, but my favorite meal is fresh crab, french bread, and champagne. You get to pick your own crab, but I'll do the dishes...
Music? Symphonies, songs that I know the words to (or at least can understand them), blues, some jazz, rock and roll, oldies, no loud screaming with my tunes, please.
If you're curious, I'd like to hear from you. If you're not, I'll hope there's something worth waiting for each of us down the road. I do like my life, but sharing is so much nicer. That's why friends are so valuable. Could you tell me a bit about your best friend(s)? It would be fun to hear what you have to say..
