Who knows .......
Meet men and women from California, United States. I am a 66-year-old lifelong bachelor. I have been a sculptor for 36 years & that, coupled with my natural tendencies, has diverted me from actively seeking a partner for life (or even a steady career to provide economic security). My "career" has consisted of a series of time- & energy-consuming jobs to 'support' my sculpting, which I had hoped would be a full-time vocation, but has not been.
I would love to find a life mate whom I find attractive and who finds me so, who has a good heart, a good sense of humor, and a good outlook on life. A kind and generous person, intelligent, patient and yet energetic, a thinker and a dreamer. Someone who loves the out-of-doors and a good book. Somone who thinks that the world as it is is not the best of all possible worlds, but who doesn't expect to change it overnight. I've never been politically very active, but I do have views about the ways things work (and don't).
I'm 6 feet tall, about 235 pounds, large of frame, with extra pounds. I'm strong but aging. I think I'm more youthful than many people younger than I. Spiritiually, I'm a born-again atheist, having been raised Catholic. I think organized religion has had good features but has also diverted humanity from the problems of the real world and is a problem itself.
I have not dated much in the last 12 years, so I'm rusty (and crusty). I'm more pessimistic than I used to be, but I do believe in beauty, and the beauty around us. I would love to find the life partner I described above, but I'm beginning to think that I won't, so I'm looking for a companion (s?) to share with: going to the beach, sightseeing, driving in the country & up and down the coast, going to SF (musuems, Chinatown, Golden Gate Park-- I'm a good tourist), dining out and more. I've used Match to see who's out there looking for men & what they want. I haven't subscribed until now because I was really not actively engaged in looking. Now, I'm going to have a studio show at the end of July--that will be a good occasion to meet people in an "escapable" environment.
The last few years my life has centered on working and survival. I didn't have the time to do my sculpture, but I have moved to a workable location and I'm back sculpting. When young, I thought to be: a teacher, a computer analyst, a poet, an outdoorsman, a writer, a sculptor, and more. I've worked in labs, cleaned horse stalls, made lasers, edited for an aersospace company, worked in wineries, run computers, worked (manually) at a fairgrounds, driven for a bakery, and many, many other things.
My greatest pleasures are reading and driving in the country or to the ocean. I read mostly science fiction and fantasy, though I have eclectic tastes if something strikes my fancy. I like to eat, but I'm a lazy cook. In short, I'm an aging bachelor, but a basically nice guy. I've been having trouble getting my profile edits to work as I want. What I want to convey is that I am someone who appreciates gentleness & sensitivity, but, when the spirit moves me, likes to get out and go and do. I am poor and the future doesn't look that rosy, so if money is a big issue with you, I apologize in advance if I try to contact you and it just doesn't work for you. Just say so.
Date a soulmate from California, United States. My friends would probably describe me as young for my age. I'm a very active person with old fashioned values. I'm the product of a single Mom, and a sister that both raised me. So, I'm completely housebroken...can cook, wash clothes. carry on an intelligent conversation, and even put the toilet seat down! I love my family and my grandchildren, as well as all children. I keep my word, a handshake with me is a solemn vow. I love to put the needs of others before me. So with a partner I'm extremely loving and protective, in a good healthy way. I have to add...I don't have time for drama or game playing. I also don't care for people with extreme predujices.

I am a fit outdoors man and naturally handy having been a woodworker for many years. Love living on the land and growing my own food, keeping bees and being in nature or by the ocean. Driving the coast, sunbathing and falling asleep to the sound of the waves.Visiting out of the way places and eating lunch at little restaurants.
I am health practitioner and have visited India many times to study Ayurveda. I have also recently published a book about natural healing. I am a good cook and like to eat healthy, organic foods many of which come from my own garden. I visit England every year to see my family . History interests me and like to visit castles and historic sites staying at bed and breakfast places in the country, especially Scotland. I read a lot and am a bit of a home body curling up with a good book when I get the chance. Theater, symphony and movies are my entertainment. I rarely go into the 'city' I am much more comfortable in the wilderness or walking the local trails.
I am looking for a partner who wants to be real, authentic and go deep. I would like to meet someone who has done inner work and is willing to be vulnerable and heartfelt in relationship.

We don't need each other but love being together whether it's making love slowly or washing the dishes, playing or just being silly. I like to make friends first and go for walks and talk and get to know you slowly having adventures, working or traveling together. I am a good listener and non-violent communication is important to me. No drama please. In the end I am a romantic who likes to write poetry to the one I adore. Chemistry is essential so that we fit together and love to touch, anytime, anywhere. Does this resonate with you? If so drop me a line and lets talk, I love to listen.

Meet people from United States. I'm funny and smart, caring and intuitive, a good listener, compassionate, and blessed with a pretty nice smile. Gardening keeps me sane РІР‚вЂњ it is a respite and refuge, a way to be present and focused on what needs doing at that moment.
While I tend to dress casually (Sonoma county is that kind of place) I can dress up when the occasion presents itself!
IРІР‚в„ўve discovered that I have fun watching birds РІР‚вЂњ which you can do just about anywhere (the only wildlife we see dailyРІР‚В¦). Having lived here for almost 20 years, IРІР‚в„ўve become involved in local community issues, with focus on viable economies, support for the people who grow our food...etc. I really enjoy live blues and am lucky enough to have some great venues close by to do that, which can often involve dancing!
I raised my daughter by myself from age 11 on, and I must say, sheРІР‚в„ўs a peach! Family and friends are very important to me.
IРІР‚в„ўm curious and like to dabble, explore, research and learn. IРІР‚в„ўm a writer and need to be creative, and over the years IРІР‚в„ўve found that can take many forms.
I'm a co-leader of our regional Slow Food chapter, and member of an alliance working to create a sustainable food system.
Laughter is an amazing gift we human beings have - and I want more of it!
IРІР‚в„ўve traveled some in the past, Mexico, Hawaii, France, Greek islands, and this fall it is Italy, so IРІР‚в„ўve been taking Italian classes.

When we're together, we're both the better for it. We can be supporting, uplifting, buoyant and frivolous, carefree and serious, intense and relaxed - yin and yang. balance....
I hope I meet you soon
