Date single boy from California, United States. Hello ! My name is Casey. I live in the San Bernardino mountains in a small town called Running Springs.Its next to the city of Big Bear Lake since most of the time people dont know where it is. I was born and raised up here and love it where i live and wouldn't trade it for anything. I'm a pretty out going person and love being around people and making new friends. Love joking around , just makes the day go by so much faster and better, cant live life being too serious all the time. Having get togethers/bbq's at my house and entertaining is always on the agenda. I work as a Firefighter/E.M.T. for Running Springs Fire Department and the U.S. Forest service and am in school to be a paramedic so my schedule isn't traditional and gets pretty wild and unpredictable sometimes. I absolutely love my job and could never see my self doing anything else. My friends are my family and are very important to me. Try to stay independent, never relying on anyone an I have my own house.I am (for the most part) happy and positive. I really enjoy someone who is optimistic and tries to make the best out of every situation. I would love to meet someone that shares the same interests and hobbies as well as learning new things from each other I have always been an outdoors person, whether its going skiing, snowboarding, hiking, dirtbike riding and going on spur of the moment trips to random places. I like all music but mostly what i listen to is punk rock and country..haha weird combo I know.

Date men and women from Running Springs, United States. "I'm a movement by myself, but I'm a force when we're together!"
The Movement that is me...
... Falling in love is easy; relationships require effort and the 3 C's: Commitment, Communication, and Collaboration. Effective communication will improve any and every aspect of a relationship. Just talk it out.
... Standing still is the same as moving backwards. If I am not moving forward every day, no matter how slow or unsure, then I am not progressing. I strive daily to be a person of excellence, to be the best leader I can be, both professionally and personally.
... I have never cheated on a woman in my life... EVER!! And I never will... I respect women (and myself) too much.
... I would rather have emotional intimacy over physical intimacy. And guess what? It will make the physical that much more intense. But I don't believe in casual sex... Physical intimacy without emotional intimacy is... Empty.
... I like to take it slow, court a woman; get to know her, one lovely step at a time. I mean, I have waited my entire life for you, why do I need to rush it now? Either it is meant to be or it is not. Let's take our time and enjoy it.
... I am not the strong, silent type. I am strong, but very communicative. I will respect my feelings... And yours!
... This suit of armor gets heavy. I put on my armor to face the world, to deal with all that it is thrown at me. I have been described as motivating, intense, and engaging. But sometimes, the motivator needs motivating, the strong need strength. I don't mind driving in a relationship, but sometimes I will need you to take the wheel, and drive for a while. I don't want someone behind me or in front of me, but by my side, supporting one another. In an effective relationship, when things are rough, one needs to do the thinking, when the other is feeling.
... I am not perfect, nor do I strive for perfection... That is too stressful. I am a work in progress. I am a better man today than I was yesterday, and I hope to be a better man tomorrow.
... I have preferences, like we all do, but I come from a place of possibility and do not allow boundaries to define me or my life. Race, Nationality, Ethnic Origin, or Color are not of paramount importance to me. Neither is shape or size or distance. Who you are and what your stand for carry far more weight.
... I am marriage-minded. I know what I want and what I need. If I don't know that by now, then I have not been paying attention! Dating is just practice for your ultimate soul mate!
The Movement that is you:
-Sense of humor a must
-Confident...if you don't love yourself, how can you love others?
-Low maintenance, drama free, & down to earth
-A music lover; all genres: Hip Hop, Jazz, House, R&B, Rock
-You have no fear: Not afraid to love, to be hurt, to sacrifice, to express your feelings.
Meet a soulmate from Running Springs, United States. I am a warm, kind, generous, loving man of honor and integrity that is looking for a match that shares values. I am not a serial dater and I date one at a time. In fact, I've never even considered cheating. Although my halo may be tarnished I'm a decent guy. We've all got a life before today and if you haven't prepared yourself to move on we're probably not gonna hit it off. My divorce is final, and now I have plenty of time to enjoy life. I live in the middle mountains only 20 minutes up Hwy 330 and I am conveniently close. I'd love a match that lives up here or loves to be up here. I sure wouldn't mind coming down to see you.
Starting over at this point in my life is scary, yet exciting! I'm not twenty years old any more just looking for a good time. I'm a decent man; a great father, and a good friend. I don't have "game" and I'm not a "player." I truly want to meet someone that brings out the best in me - someone that believes in me - someone that looks up to me but sees me as an equal. I would do no less for her. All in time of course.
I am emotionally available, and ready for or a serious relationship. At the point that I have reached in life I'd like a partner, a friend, a lover -- someone to share my life with and to have some fun! I'd love to experience the passion and excitement of a new friendship as it grows into a mature, loving relationship. Let's have fun and worry about settling down a little bit down the road. I actually look forward to a relationship but not a rush getting to it. So much is missed along the way. If you aren't for me, gotta cute girlfriend? LOL.
I don't have baggage at all - just a life before today. I get along with my Ex as we raise our daughter. I am a decent looking guy looking for a fun, playful, sincere, down to earth woman that has better things to do than play games. I'm in reasonable shape and I don't suck on vegetable smoothies. If you were hoping for Magnum P.I. try Hawaii :) I can chop firewood but buy it instead; I can shovel the driveway, or drive to the market for groceries - I am not Grizzly Adams. My photos are current and what you see is what you get. Most people will tell you that I am funny and guaranteed to make you laugh at just the right time. I own a successful Internet company and I am also a certified fire fighter and EMT. I also cook, clean and do laundry. I'm a keeper!
As a single parent I am raising our daughter with Christian values and she loves church. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2007 and after years fighting has come out a winner. She returned to school all of last year and goes to 5th grade this year. Y'all just call me Mr. Mom. She also just returned from horse riding camp in Bonsall (Fallbrook) this year and took 5th place her first year. I have weekends off for good behavior (Thurs-Sunday night). I can always get a sitter during the week as well.
I sincerely look forward to hearing from you, even if it just to say thanks but no thanks. That's important to me and someone that doesn't even reply is a blessing. Ya gotsta have manners 8=) And ya gotsta be honest.
Date men and women from California, United States. I guess I live my life always curious about what's around the next corner or what the next day will bring. It's always and adventure and the adventure is all the richer when you have the right person to share it with.
I have to say I hate writing these kinds of things. It's difficult to talk about yourself without coming off as pompous, which I'm pretty sure I'm not. At least, no one's called me pompous that I know of. On the other hand, you never know what those peons are saying behind your back, right?
Anyway, here goes: I'm a very active person. It's a rare time that you'll find me sitting on the couch. I try to keep in shape with cycling, swimming, hiking, etc. and I'm looking for someone who has, if not a similar activity level, at least a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. I'm looking for an optimist. Every day is a good day, when you consider the alternative, and it's better to focus on the positive than to sit and cry in your beer, or coffee or whatever your beverage of choice might be. I like to think that, while I'm nowhere near perfect, I'm usually very tuned in to my partner. My profession requires good listening skills and I don't leave that trait at the office. Oh, and I'm also a die-hard romantic. I know a lot of guys say that, but I truly believe that things like flowers, little gifts and random acts of affection are an essential part of a successful relationship.
Other than the aforementioned, I am looking for a partner who is confident and independent, financially responsible (I spent too many years with someone who wasn't) and capable of giving as well as receiving affection. And what I'm really hoping for is someone is is not afraid for me to look deep into her eyes while she is looking deeply into mine.

Date people from California, United States. I am looking someone that can be a best friend more than anything else. A relationship can be built on a great friendship. I like camping and going for walks.I am not a fast pace kind of guy.I spend my time working on my cars and working in the yard.I am looking for someone who is down to earth.
Meet men and women from California, United States. Looking to change my life, come out of my shell. I want to teach, write, and live! I am a romantic, and at 17 the girl I fell in love with at first sight was in a car hanging out the window and I never saw her again. I've had my heart broken by my first wife. But, I'd like to try again. Living without love isn't worth it. I don't want to leave the impression of a finger removed from a glass of water.
Date a soulmate from United States. Looking for a friend, companion, love . It would be nice to locate someone with smarts, laugh lines, an open mind and a vulnerable heart.
I am easy to get along with. A simpleton and a sometimes genius. A man that needs feminine guidance (there I've admitted it). I am independent and can take care of myself yet would yield control to the right vixen. In turn you should be able to put aside past negatives about previous relationships in order to let your feminine innocence show one more time. Of course this tends to be difficult. It was difficult for me to dismantle my protective barrier and open to the idea that I do not want to do this life-thing on my own any longer. Young men can have intimacy problems. A smart older guy realizes that macho pretense is just a cover to compensate for inadequacy. Hope is eternal and I believe that there is a woman out there who also knows that something deeper is still lacking in her life.
Now, more about me: I love music, reading, exploring new trails in the local forests and raising my two dogs. I grew up listening to the original country icons while bouncing on my grandfathers knee. Then progressed to rock. Now very appreciative of jazz and blues.
As a young dude, I spent summers working as a ranch hand on my uncles ranch. Lots of horse and cattle wrangling. Snakes galore. Always remember to look down when walking through brush.
I served our country in the military overseas, driven a tank, shot most weapons known to man, traveled the orient and ventured across the dmz on missions into north Korea. I have walked away from two plane crashes, been tossed skyward by out of control horses and kicked southern dust from my shoes accumulated during treks throughout Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Texas. During my so-called "professional" life I have sold insurance door to door, run a railroad (literally), and later counseled major pharmaceutical firms on methods to avoid product contamination. In my spare time, worked as a volunteer at a therapeutic riding center teaching disabled children to ride horses. Great fun. Here's an idea for anyone reading this: if you have the ability to organize a such a facility up here in the mountain area - then lets talk.
I also have a degree in journalism and am now attempting to write something important that will positively affect others lives.
I have the old fashioned values that I see on so many of the profiles that women are searching for. I believe in honesty and wouldn't waste your time with a less than honest profile.
I am a caring man who appreciates a warm hearted loving woman. I abhor fighting and drama. I do believe that if we cannot spend our time with someone we love then it is best to live alone. I have never liked cruising bars to fill that void. And hoping to stumble upon Ms. Right in the local grocery store is just an illusion.
I can barbeque a mean steak (marinated rib-eye), appreciate a great sense of humor and am a good listener. I give a great massage and if given half a chance will kindle a bonfire to ignite that little-girl in your soul.
If I can find a funny, attractive, city/country girl that is self confident enough to occasionally relinquish control to the man who she has grown comfortable with then I will have found my queen.
Things I like: Finding that special spot to kiss on the back of your neck. You humming to yourself while in the kitchen preparing your favorite recipe. Finishing each others sentences because we anticipate each others thoughts, you falling in love with my goofy dogs; me writing you a poem for no special reason. Sitting by the fire, sipping wine and watching a good movie. You and I going outside when it begins to snow, to watch everything magically turn white.
Meet someone special from California, United States. My friends think I'm pretty smart (boy do I have them fooled). I believe I am witty and I have a great laugh. My deep voice certainly stands out in a room, sometimes I have to remember to speak more quietly. I love to get out of the house, hate to be cooped a lot all the time but I do enjoy peace and quiet from time to time. I do write some so that has to be time to myself. I love going on driving trips and have explored much of the country but I know I'll never see it all. I am learning to fly fish, which in itself can be funny. I am proud to have been an educator and maintain contact with many of my former students and love to watch their accomplishments and the people they have become.
I am looking for someone to spend quality time doing things that are new to me or me sharing things that are new to her. If a romance develops then it is as it should be, I don't want to press for that, I think mother nature should take it's own course, but it certainly would be a joyful outcome. I love happy people, love to be around people that are secure in who they are and not afraid to speak their minds.
