Date people from California, United States. I'm a fun-loving outdoorsman and adventurer. Nature and exploration fill my spiritual cup. I'm a scientist at heart and I have a thirst for knowledge and truth, but also need brainless time to recharge my batteries. Trail and beach running are my favorite stress relievers. I enjoy growing succulents all around my yard.. I'm a father, friend and by profession technologist and an entrepreneur. I am passionate about everything in my life: my son (he's 17), my health, sports (I'm a doer not a viewer), the outdoors, animals, nature the environment, and my home. I live next to the San Dieguito River Preserve along Lake Hodges and I'm fortunate to have a trail that leads to the lake. I love to run with my dog Rusty on the trails. I also paddle, mountain bike, hike, climb, camping, skiing, reading, and exploring this beautiful place in which we live. I realize that I take the pictures so I don't have a lot of me. All the pictures are within the last three years and some this year.
I love to travel and discover new places that become intimate shared memories. Eventually to return to rediscover the romance. I thrive on adventure; anything new and exciting. I'm looking to experience unforgettable times with the right person. (Have you ever hiked Mt Whitney, sailed the BVI, swam in waterfalls in Hawaii?!) Prague is my favorite city in Europe. Venice is a close second. I also enjoy staying home, cooking great food, entertaining, and just plain kicking back in front of a fire and watching a movie or reading a good book.
I grew up on the Gulf and East Coasts. I attended the University of Hawaii (Hilo), lived in Kona, and know the Big Island like the back of my hand. I've lived in SD, since 1981. Graduate degree from SDSU. I just finished my new contemporary "green" home. I've been seqestered here for the last two years rebuilding it after losing it in the '07 wildfires. All is good. I'm ready for my second life!
My ideal match? A woman with similar interests, a risk taker, respects herself and her relationships, takes care of her body and mind, and enjoys the attention of a loving man. I'm a life-long learner and enjoy and respect the differences between us and all the unique things you bring to the relationship. I like wit, fun, playfulness, and brains! All very much a turn on. Honesty, respect, integrity, family-orientation, etc., are all a given so we don't need to go through all that... I truly hope you find the romance of your life!

Meet someone special from Del Dios, United States. I like walking and enjoying nature. I am comfortable at the beach, mountains and desert. Camping is a favorite. I appreciate most kinds of music, especially blues and folk. I am not into an expensive life style. Though I would choose a more expensive meal or experience to receive quality. Looking for a friend and maybe lover. Road trips are a treat. Discovering the offbeat and wholesome is fun. Need to see movies in early afternoon. Traffic is not in my game plan. I try to go to yoga twice a week. You are taller. You are considerate of other folkвЂ™s feelings. YouвЂ™re considerate of your own feelings. You like animals and kids, especially my grandson. You like to cook but not all the time. You would enjoy a train trip to San Juan Capistrano for lunch. You donвЂ™t tailgate. You yell at other drivers but with your window and radio up. You love to walk.
Date a soulmate from California, United States. Basics:
I'm from Michigan originally, live in southern California now. I'm a longtime singer, songwriter and guitar player, a good performer and very good writer, in the вЂњAmericanaвЂќ, blues, country, and folk genres. I've also done a lot of other things to support my family and/or my musical habit when it doesn't pay. I'm good-looking, look younger than most men my age, and very intelligent. I wish that stuff impressed that fool in the mirror when I'm shaving but it doesn't, so it doesnвЂ™t have to impress you much either. Being a loving soul is what counts. I am serious enough about online dating to be a member of another site where senior people meet.
Music is called playing, and it's true. Who wants to listen to somebody work? From a kid singing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' to an orchestra doing Beethoven's 9th, you can't "work" music and make it sound good at the same time. Any fool can tell it's got no soul that way. It takes some effort to get good at making the stuff, sure, but the skills are all about being better able to play. Music is my favorite sandbox, words, melodies and guitars are my favorite toys, it's even more fun with friends than alone, and when it all comes together really right it's paradise. So music is how I know it's true that "Unless ye become as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. . ."
Getting paid to play beats getting paid to work, but I make music because I love it. So I make it as beautiful as I can, in hopes that other people will love it too. Beauty is what us human beings love, ya know. It's what we're always looking for, in everything from a pebble in a stream to our fellow human spirits to God Himself/Herself-- Creator is both, and more. (Truth be told, my God is the Goddess more often than not, and I suspect that's true of most men.)
While we're on the subject, love is why Creator does creation-- He/She's the ultimate Artist at work, which is why it's so endlessly and amazingly beautiful-- and also why there will always be a mystery to it. Face it-- if love is the reason, it'll never be completely reasonable. . . If you donвЂ™t believe me, just think of some of the crazy things you've done in its name.
Be that as it may, Mother Earth and Father Sky are the Two-Who-are-One-Being, and we're its children, so we just naturally want to be one like that with somebody too. Some lines from a song:
"I love Mother Nature, and her wonders that I see
And I have loved some ladies, 'cause they looked like her to me."
I guess that's the long way around to saying when there's a woman in my life, there's only one.
And I guess that's a natural lead-in to the "what am I looking for" part. Ummm. . .
Good looks will get my attention-- "striking" looks will grab it-- but what will hold it is that magical inner radiance called attractiveness, and it doesn't always come in a fancy wrapper.
So the wish list is, I'm looking for is a woman who, among other things:
(a) is about my age or within say 10 years younger,
(b) has a good, strong voice and preferably plays an instrument,
(c) attracts me like a moth to a candle,
(d) has a head and heart of her own,
(e) understands what I said in her own way,
(f) will talk with-- or back to-- me as needed, and
(g) can cook.
It doesn't have to be "gourmet". It's just that I've done enough of my own cooking that if you'll fix dinner, you're gonna have to burn it really bad before I wonвЂ™t eat it, and I'll help with the dishes too.
I'm sure there's a needle kind of like that somewhere in the world's haystack. I sincerely don't want to find it sharp end first, but I do understand that the woman I'm looking for will have one-- and I'll admit that there are times when that's what it takes to get my attention. What can I say? I'll always be at least that much of a man. :-)
Meet men and women from California, United States. I'm a down to earth country girl !!!... I wear wranglers, like four wheelin' in the mountains, horseback riding, camping, demolition derbys Rodeos (especially Bull riding events) I spend a lot of time outside. I love working in my Yard/garden, I do most of my own home improvement projects. I have bought many old homes and fixed them up for resale over the years so I've learned a lot. I am also a tile setter and an (unemployed) realtor. I love sports.. anything from football to Hang gliding. I grew up in So. Cal and also enjoy all the water sports available here.
I Just moved back to So. Cali... (a bit of a culture shock after living in the mountains of Utah for the past 20 years). It's nice being close to the beach again... and... I'm glad I won't be shoveling snow this winter! I've been going to school the past 1 1/2 yrs. and should have my Bachelors soon! Came home to help take care of my Mom and spend time with family.

I do go to a bar once in awhile to dance or play pool...not to drink :-) I'm not a drama queen and I think the past is a good place to keep the past unless there are positive times in your life that you'd like to share. I also don't care to talk about ex's because, theres a reason that they're ex's :-) I like to look forward (goals) but live in the moment.

I'd like to meet someone who likes doing the things I do and hopefully be willing to explore some new things together. I'm hoping to get to some rodeos and see some Bull riding this summer! I know I'll be doing some road trips to northern Cali and of course some camping. I just got back from Lake Shasta and had an amazing time with family and new friends.
