Date a guy from California, United States. I am looking for someone who is goal orientated and actively searching for new experiences, challenges and opportunities. I enjoy spontaneity and jumping into things with the best intentions. I would like to meet someone who is independent, comfortable in any setting and also leads an active lifestyle. You hopefully are an eater as I have been known to dominate some local food challenges - quantity and time for all of you who are wondering. I try to always operate from a place of kindness and treat others as I wish to be treated. Being aware of those around you and how your actions are affecting them is of the utmost importance to me. I lead a spiritual and principled life - I have faith that things happen for a reason and that as long as I keep my side of the street clean that everything works out for the best.
Meet people from United States. I thought I would throw some keywords that would describe what I like to do. If you recognize yourself in some of them, I think it might be worth taking the time to keep on reading my profile. If you donвЂ™t keep on reading, I swear I wonвЂ™t be upset with you. I will never know anyway
Travel, surprises, music, dancing, sports, books, last minute plans, open mind, film making, museum, craziness, spontaneity, going out (but also staying in), sharing, simplicity, respect, flip flops (yes, the sandals), down to earth (however fantasy is also very important), people, casual, word, news, work, sense of humor about yourself, awareness.
And yet another short list of things that IвЂ™m not really fond of:
- Cars (Dont worry ladies, I do own a car)
- Planes (I am just tall guy who will fly, I just dont like it)
- Self-centered people (but, heyвЂ¦ Have you already heard anybody saying вЂњyes, yes, I am definitely self-centered.вЂќ So this one doesnвЂ™t really count!!)
- Excessive work out / complete body addiction
I am looking for a fun women to share time together. Someone that is looking for a serious relationship, no games. Email me up if you like what you see so far, there is so much to learn about each other.
Date men and women from California, United States. I just got back on this site after being off for a while. I am SO ready to meet the right person and frustrated that it's so difficult. I hate that dating is 'work' when it doesn't work out because what I really want is a great relationship, not an endless string of dinners and dates that involve asking 'So, how many brothers and sisters do you have?" Oh well, as a wise person once said (Probably a woman): 'You gotta be in it to win it." So here goes:
I'm the type of person that enjoys life just fine on my own but would prefer to find someone to share it with. I have a nice life and a simple routine that mainly involves hike/bikes with my dog, seeing my family on a regular basis, and working on a novel I hope to get published soon (actually done with the first and working on the sequel now). I believe in good old fashion values and earnestly try to make the world a better place as much as I can. I have a passion for doing volunteer work with kids and am still very much a kid at heart.
A few other things I enjoy include camping, skiing, snowboarding, and scuba diving вЂ“ actually pretty much anything outdoors will do. I used to play basketball regularly but have retired due to chronic injuries. I also coached kids for years and absolutely loved it. I take frequent weekend getaways to the desert (family has a vacation house out there - no I am not camping in 100 degree heat!) but also love my neighborhood and am quite content to spend a whole summer being near the beach without going anywhere else. What can I say, I was raised in Santa Monica and everyone I love lives near me.
I believe in spirituality and that each of us has to find and create our own unique relationship with our higher power, just like we are responsible for finding and creating our own happiness. If you believe in the strict dogma of a specific religion and the belief that вЂ?IвЂ™m right and everyone who doesnвЂ™t believe what I believe is wrongвЂ™ then we definitely will not get along.
My perfect match is someone who is well balanced with an adventurous spirit. She'll be an inspiration to me in how she lives her life and in the way she affects others. She needs to be intelligent with a thirst for knowledge because I am always striving to learn and grow. She needs to be caring, generous and have a sense of purpose about herself and her life. She needs to be compassionate and care about kids as well. If she is outgoing and assertive that's also great. Basically, I want to be with someone whom I respect as a person and who has qualities I aspire to have.
Beyond that are things that I don't need but never hurt; being tall, beautiful, smart and funny are big bonuses but not essentials. Ok, tall actually may be an essential. I'm 6'2" and want a woman that is within 1/2 a foot of me if possible. WhatвЂ™s on the inside is far more important to me but the truth is that I want the whole package. I think I deserve that. I think we all do :-)
Note - I am not big on winks. If you really want to get my attention, please send an email and have something to say.
Meet people from Playa Vista, United States. Let me start by telling you what I have learned. It is not the things you have, the places you go, or the activities you are involved with that make you happy. Being with someone who you truly connect with, who makes you feel whole and who really gets you is what makes life great. Ok, back to the question. I think of myself as a really a good person. I am a great friend and will do anything for those I care about. I have a very friendly, warm, outgoing personality and when we meet you will immediately feel comfortable around me. My girlfriends are always my best friends and we enjoy doing many of the same activities together. I try to laugh a lot and I always look forward to having long conversations with someone that I really connect with. You can count on my to be your biggest fan and it would be great if you were mine as well. I'm secure with who I am and I know what I want out of life, I'm just looking for the right person to share it with. To be honest, I have never had a bad relationship, I just haven't quite found the perfect mate yet.
I really do have a great life that often feels like a vacation to me. I live a healthy lifestyle full of activity. I spend my weekends mountain biking, hiking, seeing movies, sailing, going out to dinner or cooking at home. I relax, I get massages, I read and I try to keep a good attitude about life. During the winter I also ski. I like to think of myself as well rounded. You can dress me up take me to the theater or leave me to sleep on the ground in a sleeping bag. I can discuss the issues of the world or how to change the oil in your dirt bike. I would be happy to go to a nice dinner with you and even happier when we wake up in the morning to go mountain biking.
As soon as we meet you will see that I am a very genuine person. I'm the kind of person that will always be there for you and that you can count on and confide in 100% of the time. I am looking for a partner to enjoy life with. As much as I love all the things I do, I find them so much more rewarding and memorable when I do them with someone I really care about.
I want to look up to my partner and be proud of who you are. If you're smarter, more successful or more talented than me, I will not be the least bit intimidated. i think that would be great. If you're not, I am more than happy to share what I know with you.
Other than that, I have a successful career that allows me the time to enjoy life. I have good friends that I enjoy spending time with. I have a lot of interests and I always enjoy learning something new. I know how to enjoy life during all the good times, but I also know how to be there during the occasional bad times. I'm not looking for someone perfect, just perfect for me. I look forward to meeting you.
Date single man from California, United States. Hey there! Thanks for taking time to stop by -- Hopefully you like what you read..
I believe that our lives are the summation of our choices-- so I choose to: learn about new things & new ideas, be open to whatever happens and laugh a lot - because sometimes all you can do is laugh. I try to live my life by simple rules: Be a good person, treat people the way I like to be treated and be honest to who I am.
I RECENTLY took a "What Looney Tunes character would you be" test and this is a pretty good summary of me:
Wile E. Coyote:
You are intelligent, sophisticated, and the physical personification of the can-do attitude. No matter how many times something blows up in your face (figuratively or literally) or prized project collapses around you, you will pick yourself up and try, try again. There is a good chance that you are very skilled in problem solving.
Ideally I'd like to meet someone that I can have fun with and explore LA with. Someone that is as comfortable cooking dinner together at home or hanging out until the wee hours of the AM dancing. Someone who would be fine with heading over to the local farmers/flea market or going to a summertime yankee's game or just being home surfing the net. Someone that has a good group of girlriends but also welcomes the opportunity to hang out with me and my friends. All in all a simple person who is kind, open minded, with a great sense of humor/quick- wit. Ideally she is a positive person that values different cultures and appreciates the idea of life long learning.
BTW-- no photos- I am probably not interested..
Thanks for taking time to read my profile
Meet a man from California, United States. I'm financially stable, educated but simple, particular but low maintenance, expectant but open minded, fit and health conscious but not a fanatic about it. I can be serious but I'm relaxed and playful. I like to travel, like to watch movies - particularly classics, action, sci-fi, and the occasional romance flick. I also know my way around a kiss.
I'm even tempered. I appreciate life for what it is. I can be both strong and humble.
You are fit and health conscious, financially stable whatever your income, educated (college), open minded, mature enough to be a team player, comfortable being humble as well as able to speak your mind, doesn't live in the past, and you understand the value of money but know that happiness is about attitude.
You know...the over educated but underpaid type who are happy with their life. Like teachers and those who work for non profits. They are the salt of the earth kind of people.
Regarding the billboard and bus ads...I'm not a model - it was a one time thing. I think it's a good picture of me though.
I've heard all the noise about on line dating and Match in particular so I decided to give it a look to see what all the noise was about. Hmmm...interesting.
Date someone special from United States. About Me:
- I come from a large Italian family in New York and although on the other side of the country now, remain close.
- In general, I try to be a good person and treat people how I would want to be treated
- I have a computer background (BS & MS) and starting my Exec. MBA @ USC in August
- I am full of surprises in a way that will make you feel special, I promise
- If you like a man opening a door for you, helping you out of the car, giving up his seat for you, letting you to order first or walk out of the elevator first, offer to carry your packages and showing other examples that chivalry is not dead, then I am the right man for you. It's in my blood, so natural. Mom raised me the right way!
- I have a very good sense of humor, but timing is what takes me from the amateur to the pro level. It is natural, just like breathing, that allows my comments to come out at just the right moments. It is a gift, although I would have preferred something more like tap dancing :)
- When I need to clear my head, I like to get in the car and drive. For example, today I drove up PCH, heading toward Santa Barbara, grabbed a cup of coffee and occasionally pulled over to take in the views - and of course lots of pictures. Unfortunately, the pictures are only of scenery. That's where you come in.
- I enjoy all types of music, but most recently I have been listening to a lot of modern country. I like to write my own music as well, but it has been some time now and I am just starting to resurrect my song writing/recording. Again, that's where you come in. I need a warm and caring person to write about.
- I've only been married once and for a long time (25 yrs).
- I am looking for someone who is spontaneous, excited to go to different places with limited planning and not all too concerned on the destination, as long as we are together.
- Self-confidence and self-esteem is key, a woman of substance - it's really not just about looks - been there, done that
- A good sense of humor is important and you cannot take yourself too seriously, unless the moment calls for it.
- You should WANT but not NEED to have me stare at you 24x7 and tell you how beautiful you are - I'm gonna do it anyway, OK not 24x7 but often.
- I am the type of person that at times is content just knowing that the you are with me, in the same room, same house, close by to me and hope to find the same.
- You'll need to like walks while holding my hand and not get too embarrassed when I kiss you in front of others and/or break out in a song - OK you can get a little embarrassed, as long as you are cute about it.
Meet men and women from United States. Eek, an engineer! Run, do not walk, to the nearest exit! ...........Still here? Fantastic! Yes, it is true; I am an engineer, but don't let that scare you. I am successful, well rounded, fun, energetic, thoughtful, and romantic. I am curious about the world and love adventure.
I am active and like traveling, especially in out of the way places and unsupported (no tour groups). Foot, bicycle, motorcycle and kayak are my favorite means of conveyance. I go for a bicycle ride or hike nearly every day.
I possess a great degree of loyalty, honesty, respect and altruism. I try to see the good in all that is around me. A striving for oneness with nature is important. I try to have a healthy lifestyle. I eat vegan at home, vegetarian or maybe fish while out.
Who IвЂ™m looking for:
I smile and have a flash of daydream when I think of you. You inspire me with your ideas, values, the way you crinkle your nose. You are happy with yourself and what you do. You are supportive of my endeavors and appreciative when I support yours. Confidence and independence are important, but so is the desire to form a loving partnership.
I am looking for a woman to share my adventures and add more of her own. Life together would not be dull! It would be emotionally, intellectually and physically stimulating and inspirational. The person I am looking for is always curious. She gets high by being healthy and fit; she is creative, cheery, spontaneous and fun!
My idea of a perfect date:
We fly by helicopter over the Napa vineyards, between friendly cumulus and head west towards the coast. Finding a secluded spot overlooking the crashing surf, we land, go for a hike along the bluffs and after a swim and splash, lay out a picnic. We talk and laugh, realizing how lucky we are to have each other, entirely forgetting that the chopper will turn into a pumpkin at 3:00.
My perception of an ideal relationship:
I believe that honesty is the most important thing in a relationship. Without a foundation of honesty, a strong relationship cannot be built. The ideal relationship would be based on mutual respect and support, in good times and bad. The relationship I am looking for has that spark, that click, the chemistry connection that is so hard to define and yet brings us together as the super duo!
What IвЂ™ve learned from past relationships (I've only had two, each about 10 yrs long):
Wash behind your ears. Tolerance is good. Perfection is unattainable. Honesty and openness will lead you forward. Work for whatвЂ™s important to you, taking nothing for granted. Let go of your inhibitions; your feelings and emotions will support you.
The company I work for is based in Santa Monica, however I live in a small mountain town 100 miles to the north. I am willing to travel a long distance for the right person initially, and would be open to moving should we find that we are meant for each other.
Date someone special from California, United States. This is actually dead simple. I'm looking for someone who knows who they are & what they want out of life. Life is relatively simple, but people often complicate it unnecessarily. Please don't.
I'm very talkative. Appealing to some, not others, but that's the way I am.
Passionate about politics because it's foolish to ignore it in a democracy. Churchill said that people get the government they deserve.
I'll watch Monty Python any time.
I'll play tennis any time.
Addicted to Netflix.
May I leave the rest for our first conversation?
Meet someone special from California, United States. For LR11, if you know a good university on the west side, you can certainly guess my address there. j.r
I'd clone someone else's profile but they are all the same - beach walks, wine and dine, and fireplaces and sunsets. I see sunsets driving home every day.yet not too many walking on the beach! Yep, easy stuff. Let's really get to the nitty gritty. I have suits and leather jackets that don't say Hells Angels, and I'm a professional with multiple degrees. I can ride a cycle but I choose to stay with head, body, etc intact. I'll be adventurous, but yet not a ballroom dancer that you want with experience, but willing to try, and I have. I'm fair to OK. I look wonderful though. Al little bit more about ...
Me: A guy that has hit the lotto of life. All is good, great job, no financial burdens of any sort, and working because it's fun. I want to retire when I meet that one special person that we can have fun for the rest of our lives... stay healthy to make that a long time too!
She: someone who enjoys life, doing the big and little things together, sharing important and dumb topics; helping the deserving and underprivileged. Sh completely cares about her family, but also know I'm #2, 3, or 4 - just above the pets and such.
Us: A good looking, happy couple. Our challenges will be to have fun and excitement forever. You camp? I do, and freeze, and take those quarter showers, so you know I do, and I'm not just a talker. I'd do anything that doesn't risk life, but maybe close to it. Your adventures, are my adventures.
Now, should I send you a Rose? No comment on the Bachelor...
Bruin fan? em at j.r ---you know the rest

I'm a hard worker and when I get going on something I don't give up on it very easily. Dedication is the only way to get anything done. I'm a photojournalist and photography is a major part of who I am; I always have a camera on me. I love to go out on weekends and just trip around downtown photographing.
I love my family and friends dearly. I will do anything for them and will always put them first. A strong, loving, and supportive family is one of the most important things I can think of because your family shapes who you are. They are your role model.

I'm new to this whole online dating thing so this is something that's totally out of my comfort level, but I'm open minded, so I hope you are too.
