Date a soulmate from California, United States. I am:
A born, and raised New Yorker, who left the metropolitan life behind 25 years ago.
My friends describe me as down to earth, and grounded; though I have not left all the City behind...
A loving father who is committed to be a better father to my incredible son.
A mountain goat who loves a bike under me when it is sunny, and skis under me when it is snowy...
And with a full life, I make time for both when I can, and try to maintain a healthy balance between work and play.
Although a mountain goat, I do love to rest my hoofs at the beach...
The ocean has a special power and energy, a living breathing entity.
The vastness and depth humbles me, and soothes my spirit.
I am studying energy. I have practiced martial arts for over 20 years, and have been studying the internal arts from China very rigorously for the past 7 years. I am very interested in energy of myself, of my partner, and of the universe.
I exercise daily, and am very conscious what goes inside my body, and hopefully my partner does too.
I do also currently race automobiles in amateur venues, but normally I drive like a sane person.
My back is open to tickles 24/7...
Integrity and spirituality are both important to me, and are guiding forces in how I life my life; I imagine that will be an important place where my partner and I connect. I am working towards being a more self-realized human being, and relish all experiences because there are valuable lessons in all of them [yes, especially the difficult ones].
My ideal partner could sit with me and connect without saying a word. Silence is not a void to be filled with noise, but can be a very rich and intense space to connect.
Someone who wants to have a secret language...
Loves to touch [and tickle], and be touched...
Is confident, sexy, intelligent, creative, a little nerdy...
Loves to be outdoors and physically active, taking in the wondrous beauty that surrounds us.
Kissing is very important. She is very comfortable in her own skin, loves to move [wants to learn Salsa], loves to laugh.
Must love good food [I love to cook ;)].
She delights in putting on a nice dress and heals to go to the symphony, but can rock a sweatpants and a t-shirt at the coffee house.
Is very feminine, but can bond and dance with a very masculine energy.
Someone who will be loving and nurturing, even when we hit the bumps in the road...
Wanting and willing to learn, and having many things to teach... It goes both ways.
Meet single man from Kentfield, United States. I am an outgoing, adventurous, and successful individual. I am a single father of one amazing teenage daughter. I enjoy the pleasures that life has to offer, good food, a good bottle of wine, and most of all good people. Also, I enjoy being a father and love spending time with my daughter. I like the outdoors, in the mountains, the beach, but I like hanging out at home as well. I am looking for someone who I can connect with on all levels. Honesty and integrity are a must. A woman who enjoys her life, knows who she is, and is looking for someone to share their life with.
Date a man from California, United States. IвЂ™m a fairly easy person to get to know. I enjoy the outdoors, natureвЂ™s freebeeвЂ™s, and a good meal. I'm a fairly good cook. I appreciate good food, fine wines, travel and children. I own a telescope, but only use it a few times a year. IвЂ™ve been known to get lost (temporarily) while on a trail, yet will openly listen to othersвЂ™ counsel. I donвЂ™t claim to know everythingвЂ¦ far from it actually, as I consider myself a life-long student. IвЂ™ve owned a fairly successful business for over 25 years - after shifting from my first career as a Biology teacher at a local high school. I am comfortable with who I am, confident, not a slave to fashion, and enjoy the occasional documentary - just so you know. I like to mountain bike, ski (blue diamond), trek (Mt. Tam) and I'm a fairly good photographer (Minor degree in college). I donвЂ™t claim to be much more than this as I am who I am and I donвЂ™t need to impress anybody - yet I will encourage my partner to be all she can be. That said, she need not be similar. I believe variety really is the spice of life.
Meet men and women from Kentfield, United States. I am on and off this site. My divorce will be final in a few months , after 2 1/2 years of separation. I am honest, love my family, work hard but like to balance my life. i love to travel to warm climates to swim and be casual. Looking for a down to earth, smart and fit woman who can contribute to my life. I would like to share what we each know and share our experiences from our "many" years of living.
My children are a priority but one is headed to college and the other is very independent as all teen aged girls are.
So, time to move forward but remember and enjoy the past as well. I would like to meet a woman who is confident, smart, fit and not afraid to try anything.
Date people from United States. At the end of the work day, once home we will connect with a laugh, warmth and caring. We can leave the outside world at the front door, put some music on and relax cuddled on the sofa, cooking dinner together or dancing in the kitchen. As we face life's ups and downs, we will care about the others' feelings. We'll enjoy chatting, laughing and traveling together. We're both passionate about making the world a better place, and enjoy spending time going to lectures at the Commonwealth Club, as well as finding a new Italian restaurant, or staying home cuddled up watching a movie.
I am looking for a smart, eligant and kind woman for a long term connection. I truly enjoy being in a partnership. I am affectionate and look forward to meeting a woman who, like me, is energetic, fun and a lifelong learner who will take action when it's needed. She delights in being part of a loving couple who enjoy bringing dreams to fruition.
I'll be pleased to drive her to the airport, and surprise hers with flowers, chocolate or an adventure on the spur of the moment. I know that a relationship involves romance, loyalty, truthfulness, a sense of humor, and caring for each other as equals, as well as sharing common interests and good communication. Talking about the things that stress us, interesting articles, storys on NPR and how we view the world and those close to us, are all important.
I usually prefer small dinner parties over crowds but often go to events and enjoy dancing. I like conversations about social, political, and world issues. I enjoy my work and time with my 23 year-old daughter. I am passionate about helping people and protecting the environment.
I enjoy exploring the world with my love as well as weekends away including Carmel. After running errands on Saturday, we might end up up in Sonoma for dinner, take a hike on Mt. Tam or stay at home and cook together. I like walking arm in arm talking anywhere. I like to walk along European cobblestone streets, having a coffee/tea at a sidewalk cafe and touring museums.
In January I went on a trip to France and then onto China. Arround the world in 12 days. All fun in France, all work in China. In April I spoke at a conference in the Bahamas (someone had to do it :)). I like making hotel and plane reservations for Europe, but once there I like to play it by ear for adventure without being glued to an itinerary. I enjoy shopping small stores. I like learning about other cultures. I appreciate art and have recently been to the National Museum in Washington DC (they have the only Leonardo da Vinci painting in the US), the Getty Center in LA, and our own MOMA. In sports I rather participate than spectate.
I am intellectually curious and am a reader, not much of a TVer (but have enjoyed PBS and other series such as Rome and The Wire) and it is fine if my partner watches. I am generous. I attended fundraisers for Compass Family Services (they help battered and homeless women with kids), SF Beautiful, the Swedish Chamber and SF Symphony's Black White Ball (fun!). I like to laugh and am humorous, but it sometimes can takes getting to know someone before my humor shines. I am easy going and calm, but like to spice things up as well (see above trips). I enjoy style, but also like casual. I like good food and the smell of fresh basil, cinnamon and garlic. I love to walk in nature.
I work in and spend a lot of my free time in SF. Kentfield FYI is in Marin Co. While I have written books, I can't spell to save my behind. I am permanently separated long term. My divorce will be final shortly (my ex and I get along and are in agreement). My age, height and waist line are accurate and photos within a year (and they are of me).
Meet a man from California, United States. I spend a lot of time writing. It's a must for me - it's also a solitary activity. So much so that it makes breaking the routine and being with people a must. A book is no substitute for a real woman. I'm looking for a woman secure within herself. Someone who understands both those needs - love and work. Aside from the need to collect my thoughts - I'm open to almost anything.
Date people from California, United States. About me:
This past MotherРІР‚в„ўs Day my daughter presented me with her written reflection on who I am. I was amazed by the many different facets of me that she saw РІР‚вЂњ not just the lawyer and single mom who adores her children РІР‚вЂњ but someone who loves bright colors, chocolate, and country music, is obsessed with super high heels, loves running on Mt. Tam (slowly!), is a great skier, and enjoys reading.
My friends would describe me as outgoing, energetic, and always on the go. I have a positive outlook and am in a good place in my life right now. I am intelligent, ambitious, and successful in my career. I am fortunate to have a job that I am good at and enjoy. But I am equally devoted to being a great mom to my two amazing daughters, and I move mountains to make sure that I am there for them. The support that I have received from family and friends in challenging times has humbled me and taught me a sense of gratitude. In turn, I am motivated to extend my hand to others, in ways large and small, when I have the opportunity.
I love spending time outdoors, especially trail running, hiking, and skiing. I recently tried paddle boarding and would love to do more of that. I also enjoy gardening, camping, reading, traveling, spending a night out in San Francisco, listening to live music, the theatre, a day trip to the wine country, cooking a great meal together, or having a picnic after a great hike on Mt. Tam.
Intelligent, confident, sophisticated, and successful. You are emotionally available, know yourself, and are a good communicator. You are strong, have a positive outlook, are a РІР‚СљdoerРІР‚Сњ, and are romantic. You are physically fit and enjoy the outdoors, but also enjoy going out for a nice dinner and the theater. You have reconciled the disappointments in your life and are looking forward to finding love again. You appreciate my ambition and success, but also see my softer side.
I am looking to share those special moments with someone who is seeking a serious relationship. I greatly appreciate the companionship, the connection, the affection and warmth that a close relationship can offer. That is why I am looking for someone who is available and ready for a committment, as I am.
Meet men and women from United States. Me?
I'm a good girl with an edge. I'm creative and tend to think outside the box. I'm always learning something new.
I enjoy rich conversations about current events and social issues. I listen to NPR and read the New York Times daily. I love This American Life, Radio Lab, Jon Stewart and Chris Hayes.
I enjoy good food and farmer's markets.
I find humor in most situations, albeit a bit dark at times.
Although I'll happily camp under the stars, I'd rather end the day in a big fluffy bed.
I love to explore new places. I'll try anything once unless it involves extreme heights or eggplant.
I make traveling a priority. I went to central Mexico in March '12 and Cuba in May '12.
I'm a city girl at heart.
I'm a busy mom to a sweet 17- old boy who still loves to give me hugs, but not in front of his friends!
I'm really good at nurturing friendships, inventing games and multi-tasking.
I'm athletic and outdoorsy. I enjoy trail-running with my dog. I also hike, bike and ski often.
YouРІР‚в„ўre adventurous and outdoorsy. You like to travel.
YouРІР‚в„ўre curious and well read.
You laugh a lot.
YouРІР‚в„ўll take a spontaneous trip to Tahoe because there's 2 feet of new snow.
You can be self-reflective. YouРІР‚в„ўre not afraid to show your feelings and ask for what you need.
You stop to enjoy those РІР‚СљmomentsРІР‚Сњ that donРІР‚в„ўt come along often.
You welcome the unexpected.
Date a soulmate from United States. Bonjour,
I enjoy my independence yet I want to share good times, moments with a man who likes to have fun and laugh, eat great dinners, and explore all that is offered to us, right here, in the Bay Area, in California and beyond. I have an un-French characteristic: I see the glass half-full and I'm almost, always in a good mood. Environmental and social justice are areas that matter to me and are integrated in my daily life as well as my professional life. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and love discussing business ideas; Tell me what yours are and you're sure to be getting some feedback. My friends would describe me as dependable, warm, fun, creative, sensual and spontaneous. I think I am looking for similar traits in a man.
I grew up near the Atlantic coast. I love oysters, the beach, the smell of salt in the air, the sound of waves crashing, being in and out of the water (swimming, diving, sailing, kayaking). I cannot live far from it. If you have a passion for the ocean, that will be a big plus. I have a very busy life: love my job, love to be with my teens (shared custody), go to France every year to visit friends and family. I also love to keep learning and intellectual stimulation. I like outdoor activities but not to the extremes. Food is really important to me (cooking and getting fine cuisine) and I enjoy sharing the experience with a nice glass of wine.
I am curious to hear from you.
Meet someone special from United States. I am outgoing, warm and passionate. People are drawn to my openness & sense of humor. I prefer long-term relationships to casual ones, and generally get involved with men who remain my good friends once the romantic relationship has ended.You are attractive, successful and outgoing and prefer intelligent, successful, independent women. You are funny and like to laugh alot, but have a serious side, too. You are a lover of good food & wine. You like cultural activities as much as watching a good football or baseball game (for which I'll join you, if you'd like, as I understand both sports well, thanks to growing up with an older brother). You don't wear your heart on your sleeve, but you're comfortable expressing how you feel and have some insight into the emotional side of who you are. You like the fact that I am independent but also enjoy the times that I surrender entirely to you (as do I!). And you're sexy as hell and enjoy the fact that I am, too.
Date someone special from California, United States. i've been gifted with beauty and accomplishment, and am brave and curious. i love to laugh and can bring laughter. for now, i'm interested in dating someone bright, open and well, let's just see.
my history includes a successful career, a challenging and wonderful family, extensive traveling, crazy/wild adventures, and a deep connection with nature and the arts. learning has and continues to enliven me, and i am blessed with amazing friendships that ground and inspire.
dating has been delightfully new-- so different than 21 years ago. it's becoming a journey of discovery with as yet an unclear goal. i have always and continue to believe in the power and mystery of love. i'm drawn to intelligence, generosity of spirit, a depth that comes from having met life's challenges, win or lose, music and, who knew, men who like to cook, but i am open to your unique combinations of history, character and right timing.
