Date a guy from California, United States. So I am a recent transplant to the bay area. I moved here at the beginning of April and I am enjoying getting to know this amazing area. I would love to meet some new people from this area that know things about it I wouldn't be able to find out by just surfing online or driving around. I am an active person fun and I also play soccer multiple times a week and think it is the greatest sport. I enjoy watching football, basketball, baseball and tennis. I can go out and have a good time or stay in with someone and not feel like i have missed out on anything. I love music, I enjoy listening, watching, and sometimes playing music. I will sing sing sing even though I am no Bon Iver. I like movies and some of my favorites are Away We Go, Up In The Air, Crazy Heart, Elf, and there are many more. I like interacting with people on a more personal level. What I mean by that is, when I am getting to know someone, I don't think a loud and crowded environment is the best place for that. I like to think that I dress well and I am conscious of what a girl wears. If you have any questions whatsoever feel free to ask :).
Meet people from California, United States. Me:
I am a romantic and a dream chaser on one hand yet reality harnesses the optimism and I know my limits and boundaries of what IвЂ™m truly capable. I crave spontaneity and breaking up the patterns of life we all become a slave to at times, so let me help you let loose. You can catch me enveloping my life with all of the following: sports (watching or moonlighting as an amateur softball, football, or basketball player), water activities (jet skiing, wakeboarding, house boating, fishing, surfing), camping, hiking, and exploring the less traveled parts of the bay area (especially the coast) with sun soaking cruising. Fitness is a huge part of my life (physical, mental, spiritual, and diet) so I look for activities which help promote and grow. I am a numbers nerd by day adventure seeker by night. I love to run life at 1000 miles per hour, but I do enjoy taking my time to smell the roses and soak up the sun, lounge, and slumber into hibernation (I love taking naps) all at the same time. I am socially conscious (but would like to get more socially involved by volunteering more of my free time, know of a worthy cause that you support?) and on a personal awareness level I know the impact of my actions (and non-actions), emotions, and words so I do my best to remain expressive of my true self while balancing the opinions of others. I tend to blend in rather than seek the forefront or spotlight but I know when to speak up or show up when necessary and then fade back into oblivion. You will always know where you stand with me as I am unafraid to express emotions and inner thoughts unlike most guys and I do not run from difficult situations- I rather we tackle, debate, and solve them together. I am a low maintenance dude just a regular hug, kiss, and smile to know we are both happy together. IвЂ™ll be your best friend and avid supporter in whatever you take on in life.
IвЂ™m looking for somebody nothing like me who I can compliment your life as well as challenge and grow your life for the better. When dating, I look more on personality meshing, vibing, activity and life sharing with a person to set the foundation for mutual respect, appreciation, love, and romance. I am more interested in the bonding, vibing, laughing, debating, knowledge sharing, and fun we are creating than what package and background you are derived from. I glance into your soul and see how you treat others (and how people receive and interact with you) of all backgrounds to see the coolness and respect you emanate. I enjoy your diverse range of tastes even if they are conflicting tastes. You are fun to be around in a personal setting or in a group. Thanks for looking and good luck with your search hopefully IвЂ™ve intrigued curiosity in you to want to know more.

Meet a man from Point Richmond, United States. After spending fifteen years out of state, I have been back in the beautiful Bay Area for the last ten. I am romantic and passionate yet outdoorsy and rugged. I am independent, attractive, outgoing and confident. I am very active and think a healthy lifestyle is important.
I keep myself fit and trim. I love the outdoors and all the activities it has to offer. I mountain bike, run, windsurf, play golf and tennis, love the snow and all sports. I am a great cook, like gardening and home brewing beer. I am a no talent hack artist, but I love it! I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I love learning about people, cultures, art, the environment and anything interesting.
I recently changed careers and am now teaching and consulting on Green Building Practices. I have a full and happy life, but am interested in sharing it with someone special. Could that be you?
I am looking for a fun, happy, active, attractive and easy going lady who enjoys the arts and culture, live music, the outdoors, quiet evenings and time with friends. A lady who can dress up as well as dress down, is comfortable in their life and wants to share it with me! Someone who appreciates a man who works well with his hands around the house, is able to fix things, has a smile on their face to start each day and finds the good things in life. Any relationship takes a lot of trust, respect, love and communication, fun and laughter!
Date a soulmate from California, United States. Just a guy, aging well, but fighting it. And I lost the beard a few years ago...it made a comeback on a vacation but alas has disappeared again. And I'm Blonde going distinguished gray... all right.... already gone gray. I'm reasonably fit and love to sail, ski and hike. Cooking, eating, wines also are high on the hit parade. Travel is an especially compelling aspect of life, and I'd love to get to a point in life where travel is the norm, having a home base here or there...as an anchor, but being mostly on the road. As for fun and adventures, I spend a good amount of time in the City, I find it good counterpoint to the life in less hectic Pt. Richmond. San Francisco has so much to offer it would be crazy not to take advantage of its culture and nightlife.
I'm attracted to self assured, smart, engaging women. YouвЂ™ll be attractive - which is purely subjective and subject to influence by all matters of things other than your physical looks. You'll be smart and more than sensual. A woman, who is active, physically fit and enjoys outdoor activities and travel yet can just be a homebody on a rainy day, making marinara, is probably going to be a great fit. I would like to meet and have a deep, lasting relationship with a woman who shares the same visions for the future - whatever we jointly decided they should be and work to make such visions our reality.
Extra credit given for sailors (or a desire to learn) and if you have children, that would be just fine. I've a couple myself, who are at times, both wonderful and exasperating...and both off to college.
If you like to cook, eat and drink well, work in the garden, that's wonderful. I can handle the cooking, have no problem with the wine selection, but have a hard time with the gardening! Weeding some how perversely sustains and satisfies you?
About baseball...a Giants game, escaping the office on a sunny weekday @ noon, with cold beer, hot dogs, peanuts and a pitchers duel...if you can enjoy that...truly perfect. We could skip the garlic fries, OK?
Meet a man from Point Richmond, United States. I am in the process of divorcing, the papers are with the court and there is no drama. I have been living separate for more than a year and in my own place since July '11.
I am a SF native. I grew up in So. Cal. spending all the time I could at the beach. I came back to the bay area in the mid seventies to pursue a career in photography. In 1980 I changed direction and have been doing what I do now for almost 32 years. Minus the 3 years ('95-'98) that my daughter and I spent exploring Central and South America on our sailboat.
Some of the things that I have been told about myself that I can repeat....I am thoughtful, reliable, generous, a romantic, affectionate, sensual, a good friend, a hard worker, the best dad, a good cook and that I can be pretty darn funny. I will get great pleasure in hearing your laugh.......be it with me or because of me.
How do I see myself?.........I'm an honest, caring and responsible man. When I commit to a relationship I am in all the way. I don't continue to look around. I have a quirky, slightly warped sense of humor.........not too much is sacred. I can be a bit of a perfectionist at times. If I'm doing something for you chances are you will be satisfied with the finished product. It is important to me to keep my life as uncomplicated as possible. Time off work is time to disconnect from the daily routine. A couple of hours on the bay can do wonders for the psyche. My spiritual journey is ongoing and at times it moves pretty slow, but it does keep moving. This quote from a John Prine song sort of tells how I see myself going through life these days......" I be what I believe in 'bout as often as I can and I maybe can be oftener than most"
I am looking for a woman who is happy with where she is in her life. Someone who is emotionally evolved with the ability to clearly express her feelings and needs. We would have our own passions as well as the ones that develop between us. I want a sweetheart, a best friend, a passionate lover and someone to get a lot older with.
I believe that important elements to building a strong and healthy relationship include: attraction.. romance...communication ..honesty ....trust....acceptance...love...commitment.....ad
I have included a few photographs to show what type of photography I enjoy doing.
Date single man from United States. I like to concider myself to be a free spirit and do many things spontaneously. Have recently retired and am enjoying my new sence of freedom, it's a lot like starting over and it's all good.......
Looking for a relationship founded in frendship, someone with common interest or someone that would like to share in my experience, and I in there's.. My passions include continuing my spiritual path of growth and discovery, my meditation practice, being outdoors, watching sunsets, bike cycling, hiking, photography, RV camping, sailing on the bay, ceramics, and being with my dog Sam..
My spirituality is a large part of who I am, I devote a balanced amount of time to activitys that are both healing, nuturing, and premote growth for my body and spirit. This includes yoga, workshops, class series, daylong retreats, healing work in many forms, and my meditation practice. It would be nice but not necessary to have a friend/partner that was on on a similar path of spiritual growth and discovery, finding their true nature, seeking inner peace and contentment.
I have been seperated for three year's now, and am in the process of getting my divorce finalized. As many of you know in Ca. there is a 6 mo. 1 day waiting period, not sure what that one day is for.....so it's time to practice the virtue of patience.
My friends describe me as being kind, compassionate, humble, spontaneous, humors, a good listener, and having an even temperment. If these qualitys are important to you please drop me a short email (or a wink if you are inclined) and tell me something of yourself and we will see what unfolds. Best wishes in your search.......Namaste

I've lived in Europe and Mexico and see the world as a community that needs to learn to live together.
I'm a guy who aims high in his life, in every respect.
