Date a soulmate from United States. I am primarily an academic, although I have an additional profession as an attorney. I like good conversation and quiet times at home, but I am also active, enjoying tennis, travel, working on my own cars and bikes, and going to concerts, lectures, and the like. I am an avid reader, devouring the newspaper most mornings, and am therefore ready to discuss the latest political outrage. But I also enjoy the classics, everything from Homer to Shakespeare through Camus. I was fortunate to have the opportunity as a grad student to teach in the Revelle Humanities program at UCSD, where we were tasked with learning the "great books" sequence and passing it on to our students. Does it get any better than this?: Paid to learn poetry, art, drama, history, literature, and philosophy.
Aesthetically, I can spend a day at a museum, (the Getty is a favorite), or attend a concert or play, especially if we go out for coffee and desert thereafter and share our impressions about the performance. Conversely, I still get choked up at the end of the Parent Trap or Sleepless in Seattle. I love the beauty of nature and took my son on numerous camping trips throughout the West. We even made a trek up the coast to Banff and Lake Louise, Canada in a VW camper van. A walk through a forest, quietly, hand in hand, is a romantic ideal.
Activitywise, I have been called a tennis fanatic. I've tried and liked whitewater rafting, ziplining, jet-skiing, and parasailing, but haven't returned to them. I am much more serious about the fact that this is the first century in which an ordinary guy can fulfill Icarus' dream, so I earned my pilot's license (before I turned 50.) It also makes for extended range weekend getaways. When I am in the tropics, I like to snorkel.
My ideal match would be well-educated, have a good sense of humor, be fun-loving, even adventurous. Someone who values companionship, not only for the fun times, but also for the way it lightens chores. Knowing how to be a friend and partner is of utmost importance. Good communication and honesty lead to trust, which forms the basis for commitment . This is a path I have traveled.
Meet men and women from California, United States. Hi. Thanks for stopping by. You have found a warm, passionate guy with a great sense of humor who enjoys going out and experiencing all of the life we have here in SD and knows that having someone to share it with makes all the difference. I like simple things like having coffee out, margs at sunset or sitting on the couch watching a movie. And if it can be dinner, dancing, comedy clubs, wine tasting, day trips up the coast etc, the list just goes on for having fun and experiencing life and each other. If you are up for any of these, or have some ideas and would enjoy some company, lets do it.
Me: I exercise 6 days a week and take TaeKwonDo. I work in Information Technology - yeah a computer guy. I like to travel (I really like it when I get there more) but Hawaii, Bahamas, Jamaica - almost any place with a warm ocean breeze is good. Vegas is still fun every couple of years - mostly for the shows and restaurants these days.
I would like to find a partner to share what could and should be the best part of our lives. But until I meet them (you?), I am hoping to go out, enjoy what is out there and see where it goes. Are you up for it?
Write me. Maybe we can share and have some fun together. If it grows than life just got better.
I wish us all good luck in our searches.
Date men and women from United States. A final attempt to meet someone extraordinary, someone that appreciates me, and does demonstrate the utmost respect at all times!
A brief insight:
I am an optimist by nature, and surround myself with such individuals.
Do possess passion, and carry a sense of pride in relations to my family, friends, and truly the way I conduct life overall.
I am a person with much depth, that is positive, genuine, honest, loyal, confident, creative, intuitive, joyful, motivated, respectful, multi faceted, international (;), fair, adventurous, idealistic, spiritual, rebellious (at times), open minded, educated, self sufficient, original person, just to name a few traits.:) Don't let my description fool you, I am not perfect, by far!:) Please take note of this, I am exceptional independent, I am consumed by work, however for the right person very willing to cut back and enjoy one on one time!
My list of interests appear to grow on a rapid rate, which are anything from a Noise Concert, to a Festival to a Classical Music Performance, I am a big fan of Opera's ( Puccini's particularly) and Symphonies, and listen to live Jazz and Blues at local establishments often. Admire all sorts of Arts, whether it is Performing Arts, Paintings, Sculptures, Glass Arts, Pottery, you name it!
Enjoy to travel, explore nature, and discover it at times at its purest, take much interest in different cultures, and often learn about history.
Love to canoe down stream, and can be at times successful at fishing as well. Possess a fascination in relations to Human Anatomy and Physiology, must be why I chose to work in the Medical Field.
What I am looking for in a partner?
Integrity and credibility are must haves, amongst many other important characteristics, such as pride, morals, values and respect! An individual with diverse interests would be most definitely someone I would be interested in investing my time in, to possibly get to know one another in depth.
If you happen to be looking for casual encounters, I must disappoint you, that is a lifestyle I refuse to participate in, and no exceptions!!! Now, creating a incredible friendship is a completely different story, a matter of fact I find that at times a friendship can be that essential to something much more grand, anyway I am content with either way, life is filled with many possibilities, indeed!
Something I will not tolerate is being involved with an individual that is "still" shopping around for other potentials on any kind of dating website, it is disrespectful on the highest level! It it obvious I am not going to stand for that, who would want to jeopardize something truly great just to feed their ego, and further more??? Needless to say this is the reason for being back on this site in hopes to meet someone that does recognize when "Great" stares them right in the face! Respect and Trust are the essentials to any successful relationship, if such does not exist, everything else is of no importance!
Also, I do value my time, and so should you, as we all know time is irretrievable and therefore have very little tolerance for nonesense, inconsistency or head games , I find it to be a major turn off to say the least!!! And "Hypocrisy" I find the least attractive!
If you are easily intimidated by a strong willed, intelligent, opinionated and outspoken woman, it is best to bypass my personality type! I am a forthright type of woman, I speak my mind cleary on any topic, particularly when it comes to my ontake how a person does treat me, which is not to be confused creating drama.
On a side note:
I am not looking for someone to complete me, however I would love to travel the road of happiness with that exceptional someone!
