Meet a man from California, United States. Please know that I live part-time in each Monterey and San Diego. I am devoted to finding the "right" woman for me, wherever she is "out there". Social options are limited in central CA (Carmel? Hello Golden Years. Hello?). No offense intended, but I have tremendous life inside of me, available to that one person who comes along in life I may find I cannot be without. I'm open to longer distance relationships; hopefully you're as flexible as I love my work. Truthfully, perfect woman, I hope you have a travel desire, to include as many short trips as can be packed in a lifetime. :) Additionally, although I look and certainly FEEL much younger, I am actually turning 48 in 2012. Don't let this fool you, please.
I am a well-grounded, factual individual with dreams of filling my life with great experiences through travel, with people, and by having fun. Laughter is indeed the best medicine, wouldn't you agree? Who doesn't enjoy soda through the nose?!?
I'm a sensitive soul, and I enjoy new experiences and adventures as they come to me in life. I aspire toward a wealth of learning and improving. I seek serenity, peace, and the expectation life can only get better as we live it! "If you don't have goals, you can't surpass them!"
I am loyal, dedicated, especially caring, and LOVE nothing better than to see the person with whom I share my time happy, content, and satisfied. I hope to forever be able to help my "one and only" reach her goals!
My most sincere need is to connect with someone with similar but not exact style and a need to feel trusted. You should have an equally high level of dedication, loyalty, and understanding that we are all human with immeasurably great days along with the occasionally not-so-good day. Loving, caring, and supporting each other is my heart's desire. Add honesty, integrity, and open communication to the mix and you have the recipe for a lasting, lifelong relationship.
I will care for you like no one ever has if you recognize I can. I offer all of me to that person who demonstrates a willingness to have it, embrace it, and grow from it, together.
Look no more if you seek confidence, humor, sensitivity, surprise, and the one emotion we can't control -- Love. You may have just read about your ideal (and last) match!!
Date someone special from Los Altos Hills, United States. I see my teenage kids (4) most weekends, but find that I am lonley durring the week, and some weekends.
I like to cook, especially with someone...but it tends to be traditional. However I love a good dinner out.
I love to cuddle up a watch a good movie at home. Popcorn and milkduds!
I like to travel, even if it is a weekend to Santa Cruz, Lake Tahoe, or Reno. I have spent a lot of time in Maui. Warm beaches, blue water, good golf, and wonderful food.
I am a water guy. A pool, river, lake or ocean. If the waters warm, I am in it.
I get along with most people and try not to judge. I am very slow to anger. I know how to laugh! I have the crows feet to prove it.
Meet people from California, United States. First, the basic 'stats'. I have been divorced for two years, have two wonderful daughters in high school, and rent a small but delightful cottage in the local foothills, far enough out to see the occasional coyote but close enough to town to allow for a comfortable walk to late breakfast on the weekends. I work for a well established NY based firm, but have started or been directly involved with the staring of a dozen or more small companies in Silicon Valley. I have made enough money in my career to be financially secure but not enough to retire quite yet.
I am a very friendly and giving person, somewhat quiet but well liked and respected by my friends and peers. I am looking for someone who enjoys casual activities together as well as a reasonable amount of social interaction with friends. I'm not big into fancy, much preferring a low key, understated life style. I want a partner who is not afraid to say what she wants and is willing to communicate openly and directly. I am looking for someone to spend the rest of my life with, enjoying many of the simple things we all have around us. I am not caught up in expensive toys and gadgets, although I spend most of my professional time in the technology field with a particular passion towards investigating ways for what we develop to help make the world around us a better place in a variety of ways. My ideal partner will not necessarily understand the details of what I build but will clearly understand the desired end goals, and support and join me in these efforts.
Date a soulmate from California, United States. I am the eternal optimist. Sometimes situations do get me down, but by the morning, I am ready to go again. It's very rare that I will let anything get me down for longer than a day or two, and then it has to be REALLY BIG.
I love doing spontaneous things, like getting into the car and just driving somewhere for the day or a weekend, going to watch a movie on the spur of the moment, waking up on a beautiful day and taking a walk on the beach, taking a walk on one of the Capes wind & rainswept beaches,cuddling up in front of a fire and just vegging(is that a word?) the whole day. On the other hand, I believe in planning as well. I don't believe in doing irresponsible things. Being spontaneous is good as long as all the doors are locked..... you understand what I mean.
I shoot straight from the hip. This does not mean I go around hurting people at the drop of a hat. It means I am a true person. I don't believe in mind games. If I like you, you will know it. You will see it in my eyes, feel it in my touch. Sometimes I think my feelings seep from my pores, they definitely do from my eyes. I feel, love, touch 100%. No half measures for me. I do it properly or not at all. I am a very independant man, yet yearn for the support of a stable, established partner. Although I am fiercely independent, I am also very old school, where I believe the woman should take charge in a manner that does not involve ego.
I am a passionate animal and nature lover and follow a very natural life style. I look to nature for inspiration...the moon shining through the clouds on an overcast night, the sun setting in summer over the Karoo as you chug through on the train, butterflies flitting just out of reach but touching you with their presence as they go, birds waking you in the morning while camping in the bushveld, the waves crashing onto the rocks below the Windsor Hotel in Hermanus... I could go on forever. The beauty of nature is overwheling and touches me in a special way.
Meet men and women from California, United States. A tall, bearded guy, who has been described by others as a hunk, a hottie, and a gentle giant. I have creative, inventive, and artistic sensibilities, dabble in photography, and have done a bit of writing, poetry (three books) if I''m particularly stressed. I'd particularly like to meet a gal who is accepting of a (just a) few imperfections, but appreciates someone who is special. A woman who isn't afraid to be adventurous, as in, sailing out to sea or riding on a motorcycle. I dig artistic, agreeably attractive (a tall, beautiful, slender, and graceful woman) who is down to earth, a peaceful disposition, and has a great sense of humor. I have been mistaken for a certain unique actor who was in MASH, the movie (hint: not Gould). I believe in giving a woman trust, respect, and freedom to do their own thing, and expect the same in return. I believe other living things are people too, and I try to withhold judgments of other people until I've had a chance to see them express themselves for a time.
Date someone special from United States. I enjoy spending time with a special woman. I open doors, pay for dinner, and hold hands. I enjoy good health and do what I can to keep it. I'm not retired but don't work as much as I used to and enjoy going places and being with people. I work hard to keep in shape but also like to cook and eat. My work keeps me focused on science and math but I have become a real history junkie and do like music. I travel both for business and for pleasure and would like to have company. My business takes me to Washington DC often, and I have family in Connecticut and Colorado that I try to see once or twice a year. Exploring California is a favorite passtime, and there seems to be endless new discoveries. Finding someone who would share my interests and offer some of their own is my present preoccupation. While I could describe a perfect female companion, I don't want to specify any particular features, limits or preconceptions. "Match" sounds too much like same, and I don't want that exactly--I also want contrast. At the same time, I think that we can all judge pretty quickly about basic compatibility and attraction--chemistry works fast.
