Date a man from Forestville, United States. I was at a party and started talking to the mother of an old friend. She said she was impressed with how I've managed to put things together in the end: got the job I was after, and bought the house where I want to live. I told her, вЂњWell, I guess two out of three ain't bad," and it got me thinking--yeah, I'm ready to find someone now. So like you, I'm giving this online thing a try. One thing I can say for sure is ItвЂ™s been a varied path, to lead me here: writing plays, city living, country living, backpacking abroad, writing music, going back to school, getting a doctorate, collecting friends along the way, even a stopover at law school with ivy walls.
But now after having been away for years, my compass has led me back home. Sonoma County has always been homeвЂ”itвЂ™s so beautiful here! Every day on my drive to work I see the vineyards and lavender sky at break of day. I love to hike in the oak hills, and see the redwoods, and to kayak in the river down by the coast where thereвЂ™s always sea birds and seals. IвЂ™m a country guy at heart--but with a blues and rock beat. (Of course, I canвЂ™t deny your Hank Williams or Patsy Cline, I mean, really!)
That being said, I definitely appreciate some of the finer thingsвЂ”I love to eat! Many of my best experiences involve food, friends, and drink in a great city. Last year I visited friends in Portland and New York, home of The Spotted PigвЂ”delicious!вЂ”the year before that, Charleston S.C. (home of вЂњThe Big NastyвЂќ chicken and biscuit affair slathered with enjoy-the-food-coma gravy) but San Francisco is home turf. I spent my early 20вЂ™s post-college years in an S.F. apartment in North Beach with a couple of Irish housematesвЂ”needless to say, IвЂ™ve had a few good times in the City.
So this is me, written from my cottage duplex fixer-upper (gettin' there..., ...) toward the top of a hill off a little gravel road with some redwood trees and a pesky racoon that won't leave my solitary goldfish alone--yeah, another time. I'd describe myself as smart but not too serious about it, caring, having a good sense of humor, and up for a good time whether that means an adventure in the wilds of New Zealand or a cozy evening indoors with some popcorn and a movie on HBO. As you read this, know that I am looking for a woman who is kind, warm-hearted, likes to laugh, enjoys hikes, likes animals, is comfortable in the country, is up for travel, and enjoys a lively discussion about life, the universe, and everything over a meal and a bottle of wine. Who knowsвЂ¦we may just find the perfect risotto.
Meet someone special from California, United States. People think I'm kind of hardto figure out but I'm really not. I'm quite honest, i like to have fun. Goin out, shooting pool ,costal invironment.,a tropical beach,surfing, making love in the sand as the sun sets! I'm a total romantic and totally miss those days. Been through alot and ready to move on! I trust girls again, no rebound girls for me. Yay!
Date men and women from California, United States. Closest friends would describe me as a true friend. I can make friends with just about anybody. My kids make me smile. I'm proud of how I have raised such good kids, so far. I'm looking for a friend to hang out with first...go to the movies, grab a drink or coffee, something simple to start with.
Meet men and women from California, United States. On a given day you may find me at home with a book, on the ocean in my kayak, high in the mountains watching nature, or hanging in a nice restaurant with a fat steak and a nice Pinot(A frosty IPA is my favorite). Some stuff I like to do- boating on Lake Sonoma during summer looking for a cool spot to jump in and swim, picnic, hiking the deep and dark of a redwood forest, freediving the Pacific ocean for fresh seafood(abalone, scallops, fish). Hate to brag but I'm probably the worlds best fish taco maker ;)
You are out there somewhere. You have flaws and bad days too and I'll be right there with you ;)
I fear greatly to be that person, who, upon the end of their days, discovers the clock ticked life away- I try to always remember this and live accordingly.
Am fiercely loyal to my few close friends and small family, all of whom partake in my sometimes crazy adventures. I raised an angel of a daughter who is now in college.
Intellectual things and conversations are fun with the right folks. A good Crossworder(is that a word?)and Scrabble player but an idiot at card games. Those close to me will say I'm spirited and precocious. I'll cry if moved and don't care who sees it. No person in their right mind would describe me as, "a simple guy".
What would it be like if you didn't measure the success of your life just by what you get and don't get, but gave equal or greater weight to how in touch you are with your deepest values? Something to chew on, fur sure.
An adventurous, assured woman who will do fun, crazy and sometimes dangerous things(this part is negotiable)catches my attention. I'm affectionate and look for the same in my sweetie. Big fat smiles and slow kisses are at the top of my list.
Living an anything but boring life is important to me and I do ok most of the time. BTW- occasional lounging around in PJ's on a weekend morning does not count as boring. Every person who ever met me told me I was not what they expected. The profile thing paints but the slimmest portrait. If you care to take a chance, lets have a giant potato sack full of fun : D

Meet a man from Forestville, United States. I live a creative life. I am a passionate man who loves people, animals, nature and life in general. I love deep conversations, walking in the hills by moonlight and observing the stars in silence, travel to offbeat destinations, coffee with friends and music, music and yes, more music. World music, jazz, world jazz, classical music and some pop if it's smart. These days, I especially notice and appreciate the space between the notes.
I am an outgoing person with exceptional social skills who is interested in everything, people, politics, science, literature, film etc. I am looking for someone who is either in or appreciates the creative arts, feels very comfortable with herself and enjoys life to the fullest. I am extremely youthful looking and energetic for my age and am looking for someone who can keep up with me. I hike around 30 miles a week and do yoga as well as workout at the local gym-I am very fit and am looking for same in my partner.
I can be disciplined, but I enjoy creative chaos at times, Play is an essential part of the creative life and I am lucky enough to spend much of my time in a gigantic sandbox of my own design (and even get paid for it!)
My ideal vacation would be to travel to some exotic locale to experience a music festival and spend lots of time hiking in the surrounding countryside as well as taking in the local cuisine and culture. Always wanted to go to the Festival au Desert in Mali, The North Sea Jazz Fewtival in Amsterdam, or the Gnaoua Festival in Morocco.I have traveled a bit and am ready for a whole lot more; I love traveling on my own but would appreciate a companion for the next adventure.
I can be wacky, serious, surreal and bodacious, but above all the foundation of my life is in practicing being in the present and engaged in an ever unfolding process of self inquiry. When not immersed in a creative project, you will find me 'cloud hidden whereabouts unknown' in the hills of West Sonoma County (or Marin,) or sequestered in my far infrared sauna (big enough for two!) reading a Buddhist text or a good novel. I feel most at home when out in nature.
A shared spiritual foundation is paramount, which translates to a perspective that life's journey is a meaningful learning experience and that even life's losses can be valuable lessons when considered in the right light. A sense of playfulness and spontaneity is essential, as is a great sense of humor. I am looking for someone who is excited about life, loves nature and has a beginner's mind in everything they do, who is passionate about what they do. Sensuality, fun, creativity and adventure are what I thrive on and are qualities I am looking for in a partner. I consider myself a giving person and am looking for a partner with a kind and generous nature. I am not big on marriage and am not necessarily looking for co-habitation, although I am not entirely opposed to the idea with the right partner. Dating to start with, long term commitment if it feels right, and let's see where that takes us down the road... I am a loyal partner, ie monogamy is important. My goal is to build and sustain a long term relationship with the right person. Please be emotionally healthy and financially stable. To me, a relationship is not a fix-it is the icing on the already sumptuous cake of life.
Date single man from Forestville, United States. I'm a happy person. I make friends easily and enjoy getting to know lota of different kinds of people. I'm loyal and honest and expect the same in return. I like to laugh, a lot. I want to meet someone who is willing to love for the person I am, not someone they want me to become. Looking at the inspirational list I would say that happy personable people make me smile. My three grown children and my buisness are the pride of my life. There is much more, but we'll leave that to later!
Meet a soulmate from United States. A little about me...
Easygoing, centered, no-drama guy ready to share with you the delights of living: open, intelligent communication, fun and adventure in exotic locations (and at home!), laughter and loving, quiet moments of close connection, raucous indulgences of wild abandon; in other words, physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual intimacy.
Young at heart , body and mind (though not so much in years) I enjoy an active, physical lifestyle spiced with extensive travel. No longer working for need, I concentrate my leisure on exploration and travel to support my passion for photography and to help me find the subject for the documentary film I hope soon to begin вЂ“ something for the вЂ?better goodвЂ™, to educate, expose, or awaken. When home I indulge my enjoyment of working with my hands by operating a home services company, working as a вЂ?handymanвЂ™ primarily for the elderly and retired in need of my help.
I am much loved by my friends, family, former wife (and her husband!), and former relationship partners, as I believe that once the heart is shared the bond is lifelong, and longer. Our connections with each other are what I believe to be one of the most important aspects of being here.
My spirit soars in nature, be it exercising in a number of ways (canoeing, kayaking, swimming, hiking, backpacking, camping, bicycling, golf, etc.), practicing yoga, or simply wandering the woods, rivers, and streams with my camera in hand. When (rarely!) вЂ?trappedвЂ™ indoors by weather, billiards, a stimulating film, or a good book are my means of relaxation. Though I thoroughly enjoy dining out вЂ“ especially finding those rare and extraordinary вЂ?hole in the wallвЂ™ places that can blow your culinary socks off вЂ“ I prefer to create good healthy meals myself , always experimenting with new taste combinations and taking after parents who were both excellent, creative chefs.
Always enjoying, actually preferring, the company of women. I like their versatility, complexity, their emotional centeredness. And of course, as a sensual and highly visually-oriented male, I love their femininity, their feel, their touch, their taste. Cast me a glance of sparkling eyes, a bright smile, an impulsive touch and I am yours. An incurable, insatiable romantic I can easily play the Tracy to your Hepburn, Nick to your Nora, Noah to your Allie, and Seth to your Maggie.
I very much live in the moment, knowing that whatвЂ™s past provided lessons that have made us who we are, and concern for whatвЂ™s in the future can be largely wasted energy. My life and attitudes are best revealed by my favorite poem, FrostвЂ™s THE ROAD NOT TAKEN, and my favorite film, BEING THERE (вЂњLife is a state of mindвЂќ).
Life is an incredible journey! Unfortunately, it's all too easy to be caught up in the mundane - the need to work for a living, the little irritations and setbacks that can discourage us. But there is too little time and too much beauty in this world to let these things detract from getting from every moment, every experience, every encounter all that we're meant to. That is how I view life, why I strike up conversations with complete strangers, why I feel fulfilled when I bring a smile where there was such a serious countenance just the moment before.
That's the kind of person you'll find in me: positive, optimistic, playful, caring, appreciative of every experience and loving of others. It would be magic if your feel the same!
Date single man from United States. Tough call here. While oppupying this space on earth just trying to be a good guy and have a meaningful relationaship with someone who doesn't let the small stuff engulf their being. Have some fun too. When my ashes are tossed I want someone who is special to me to shed a small tear but then get back out there and shake up things................
Meet a man from Forestville, United States. Have you ever had a reoccurring dream where you see a personвЂ™s eye but can't quite make out the face? I know this person is female because of the attraction energy, and I know itвЂ™s somebody I have not met yet, at least in my present life. Or maybe itвЂ™s a time thing where I knew this person in another life. Whatever it is I keep searching, so here I am in cyberland searching.
I am a semi retired computer consultant, and now music is my main focus. I have studied many religions, spiritual disciplines, and metaphysical philosophies. I eat natural organic foods as much as possible, and utilize holistic medicine. I'm seeking a friendship that is safe, loving, trusting, intimate, and has a purpose defined by clear mutual intention.. I love finding adventure, discovering secret knowledge, practiing Tantra, and seeking spiritual enlightenment .
