Meet single man from Hollywood Riviera, United States. 1) I love football, UFC, movies and the outdoors.
2) I used to laugh at my sisters for talking about the food network. Ironically, it's teaching me how to cook better. Go figure.
3) Despite all the marathons, I don't like running. Just the challenge.
4) I'm a Christian. That doesn't mean I hate anything that isn't Christian or think down of other faiths. There is something positive to learn about all faiths and views.
5) I'm trying to bring "moded" back. I have a long way to go.
6) I have more embarrassing stories than anyone else.
7) Tosh.0, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Conan O' Brien, Mike Birbiglia and Dave Chappelle tickle my funny bone.
8) I love putting some type of sauce on everything. Everything.
9) I can come off as being quiet/arrogant sometimes, but nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes I look like I'm staring at someone, but I'm just thinking something unrelated. I tend to observe people. People watching has my name all over it.
10) I've been called a nerd.
11) Sometimes I give TMI. You know that person and think "I can't believe he said that!"- It's probably me.
12) I can make an origami ninja star with 2 separate dollar bills.
13) My Bachelors is in Art, but my Masters is in Computer Science. That always throws people off.
14) I've been listening to NPR a lot lately. Is this a sign of getting old?!
15) I'm still recovering from my ankle sprain and tendon tear in Dec 2011. I won't make it to the LA marathon 2012, but I'll do half marathons all year in preparation for next year. I welcome running buddies.
Date a soulmate from California, United States. I'm an odd combination of intense and laid back. I'm not really sure how I got there. The intensity comes from being a former Marine, the laid back comes from years of life in Southern California. I find myself single after a 17 year relationship ended several months ago, and I'm just getting ready to get my toe back in the dating world. I like to think I'm kind, compassionate as well as a good listener. Family and friends mean the world to me and I would try to do everything I can to help when they are in need.
I've got a broad range of hobbies, first off I'm an avid motorcycle rider (not a mid life crisis, I've been riding since I was 12), I brew my own beer, scuba dive, shoot (former Marine after all), golf, ski, you name it. I love to travel either by road trip or flight, local or international and have been to every state in the country, not sure why that matters but I thought I'd through that in. I'm an awful dancer but recently decided to start taking lessons. I'm really up for trying anything new and looking forward to what life has in store for me.
I'm pretty open to the type of partner I'm looking for. At the core though I'm really looking for a woman who is comfortable being a couple. Going out and having a good and active life is important, but I want to find somebody who can be content sitting on the sofa together watching some mindless show or reading or playing a board game or just being in a snowed in cabin for a day or two. She must have a kind heart and be able to give it to her man, but still maintain the core of who she is. She needs to be a partner in life, not just a companion.
Meet single man from Hollywood Riviera, United States. I believe we are drawn to those who have a spiritual and emotional tie to us.
I live by the ocean and love it. I also love food from all cultures and LA has it all. I enjoy occasional lounges, bars, clubs, concerts, and shows. I also love to spend time with family and friends and to vacation all over the country and world, whether it's camping in California, kicking it on a remote beach in Bermuda, breaking out in Cabo, attending the Polar Music Prize in black tie and evening gown attire in Stockholm, fine dining in Paris, meandering through the Forbidden City, snowmobiling across glaciers in Iceland, quietly standing and listening in the Costa Rican rainforest at night, or wandering the alleys of Old Town in Prague on the prowl for vampires.
Looking for someone to enjoy life with and am open to it leading to someone to embrace life with. She seasons her life with a good dose of humor, values family, craves alone time with her man, and ultimately wants to both help others and evolve herself while spending time on this ever spinning planet.
Date people from Hollywood Riviera, United States. I love life -- as my friends in France tell me, you can "work to live or live to work!"--
I travel for both pleasure and work (usually HK/China). I am intrigued by new cultures, cuisine. I am very spontaneous and adventurous--yet an old-fashion romantic at heart. My current photo is from a recent and wonderful, safari to Kenya.
I enjoy old movies, new movies, dramas and historical pieces shown at the Aero are fun. I have a passion for people which
makes me fun to be around. I enjoy daily learning. My hero is my 90 year-young aunt.
Meet a soulmate from Hollywood Riviera, United States. The worst thing about being a single male.... putting the thing back on the other thing and getting it to fit after I wash it. I think I'm putting the duvet on the comforter or it could be the other way around. Whatever it is, I always feel like I've been waterboarded when I'm done.
I am a good listener except during major sporting events. I can burn incense, listen to Beethoven and watch football at the same time. I just had a major eye opening experience. I had a manicure during the first half of a NFL playoff game and the world didn't come to an end..
Dogs are my weakness. I love their doginess. I am the Anti Dog Whisperer. I can watch as hundreds of people get slaughtered in a movie and not bat an eye, but cry like a baby when one dog dies.
Music is my other love. I celebrate the incredible funkiness of Prince. Now that's bass and drums .And Bob Marley. I still love his music and rituals.
If there are 4 words to describe me they are loyal, kind, sensitive and generous.
I'm really shy in brick and mortar situations. If a lady starts talking to me at a Vons or a Starbucks I'll ask her to e mail me first to break the ice.
Timing is everything. Sometimes my timing could be better. I was sunbathing in the nude in my backyard on the day the Google Earth Satellite took their photo of my neighborhood. And the one time I tried auto-eroticism my ex threw me a surprise party.( No worries.. I had a spotter Also, I went camping by myself recently in the wilderness and the tent next to me had a banner up saying " Welcome Serial Killers-2011 Convention."
I have this theory about online dating...
The first few months you feel like a kid in a candy shop.. So many choices.. After about 3 months you'll get a bit jaded. After 6 months you can become cynical.. After a year you will consider turning gay. ( Joke.. you're either born gay or straight.) It can be a lifestyle choice but even then you have to be predisposed or very drunk
No tea party-far right Republicans please. Your're inane and vote against your own self interests. Moderate Republicans are fine, although I'm not sure there are any left. If you think Sarah Palin's The Bomb we are not a match. She's the perfect antidote for an erection. If I watch her for more than 5 minutes I can easily become a misogynist.
I'm really into diet and fitness. I've been a vegetarian for over 20 years. It makes me sad to see people ( especially young people) let themselves go and become obese. Exercise is a huge part of my life.
Only 75 percent of women on this site show cleavage ....what happened to the other 25 percent? Come on. Man up. Joke.
Things that make me mad..When I drop my iPhone or spill wine on my laptop.
Pet Peeves- Women holding a firearm in a pic. Foreign women who say they enjoyed reading my "ad." Women leaning unnaturally against trees. Women holing dead fish..And people who pay by check for a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
My FICIO scores are all over 800. A high FICIO score is the new aphrodisiac .
It you made it this far you must be a voracious reader or need a hobby.
Date someone special from Hollywood Riviera, United States. Hi and thanks for checking out my profile. I am a happy guy, thankful for all I have and blessed with.

Meet a man from Hollywood Riviera, United States. I'm finally @ a time in my life where all the distractions are down to a manageable few, thus allowing me the attention that is required to become involved with someone special in a long term relationship.. I'm from the beach and have family in the mountains so I love to be outdoors. Being active helps me to keep a good outlook and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I'm loyal, good hearted, not possessive (live and let live) and prefer to be helpful then look/walk away.
While I love doing things together and building common experiences it's also healthy to have our own individual time as well. Living life to this point has been exciting and adventurous to say the least, however that was only chapter one.
Now is where the story gets intriguing and amazing, the time in life where all those experiences are now shared with that one person, she too will have many great experiences to relive only now it will be for a lifetime.
We'll be able to look towards the future for the amazing things about to come our way and look back on the past and be able to laugh or feel great about what we've done and seen.To possibly bring into this life, a beautiful smile and to see how a smile so small is yet so powerful, to feel the responses it brings would be amazing. I would like to share these qualities with someone that understands that life is precious and tries each day to live it to the fullest.

Date single man from United States. I like walks on the beach, warm sunset nights, pumpkin pie, carne asada, playing with my grandson, boogie boarding with my son, march madness, the tour de france, church bulletins in the car door pocket, walking on the trails, sweat bubbles down the small of a woman's back, long deep kisses, snow on Christmas, dew on Easter, fireworks on the 4th, the Bill of Rights, "Ain't That America", Mississippi Delta Blues, guts Frisbee, Chevy Chase movies, Roy Hobbs, and slow dancing to a warm desert night....
