Date men and women from Winnetka, United States. I'm single with a lot of friends and I love my job. I'm looking for someone real and loyal. I love to be outside either at the beach or snowboarding down the mountain and at the end of the day having a couple of drinks by the pool while we bar b que. Since I graduated I haven't had much time to explore california (i moved out here about 6 years ago) but now im looking forward to checking out all that LA has to offer and check out wine country up north.
I love to party and make people laugh. If you are laughing than i am having an AWESOME time.
My ideal match would be funny, smart, and like the fact that I can be a nerd sometimes, and not be afraid to cut loose every once and a while. Life's to short to not make memories.....and the occasional poor decision.
Meet someone special from Winnetka, United States. One popular definition of insanity is вЂњdoing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.вЂќ IвЂ™m not insane (yes, I encourage you to make that determination yourself), so IвЂ™m going to make the leap and apply that definition to online dating. Although IвЂ™ve dabbled in cyber-dating in the past and met some nice people, IвЂ™ve generally grown disinterested (or disillusioned) with the process during the trial period and made a quick exit. Being commitment-oriented, itвЂ™s time to commit, so IвЂ™m here for as long as it takes (or at least three monthsвЂ¦whichever comes first).
Since youвЂ™ve made it past a glance at my photos, there are a few things you should know: I'm a nice, honest guy with assertive, independent tendencies. Mothers, fathers and pets like me (not just my own!). I believe in honor, integrity and respect, and would be lost without them. Speaking of pets, my loyalty is said to rival that of the family dog. Although I'm generally easy-going, I can be strong-willed. A soft touch and a warm smile work wonders in getting around that. I'm proud to say that my grandparents were married over 75 years and my parents have surpassed 50, so my commitment compass defaults to true north. I'm told that my moral compass is similarly calibrated.
If IвЂ™ve sent you an e-mail (I donвЂ™t wink), you know that I left cut-and-paste on the cutting room floor. I thoroughly read your profile (probably more than once) and was attracted to more than your photos. Physical attraction is important in developing a relationship, but I crave substance (substance: intelligence, character, integrity and humor). IвЂ™m in it for the long-haul, so model looks and the body of a 22 year-old only go so far.
I'm health-conscious and exercise regularly. I wonвЂ™t be competing in an Ironman anytime soon, but my last Wii Fit age indicated that, with a little work, 40 could actually be the new 30. Given a choice, I'll leave the car parked and use my own two feet. I grew up and spend my days in the concrete jungle, so I'm grateful when I have an opportunity to hike or kayak or just get out in a different environment.
I love my job and am very fortunate to work around music, which pervades my life. I work with a great group of people and have a strong relationship with my team, because they know through experience that I have their backs, just as I'll have yours.
I use turn indicators, wear eye protection around power tools, recycle, floss regularly and leave the seat down, so I come fairly well-trained (although a little in-service training never hurts). I believe in making a difference, however small. IвЂ™ve had the honor of being one of the guys who runs in when the smart people are running out, so you can expect me to be there in a crisis.
A romantic optimist, I've run with scissors, played with fire and stayed in the kitchen longer than I should have in relationships, but I have no regrets. Those experiences have taught me what I'm looking for in a partner, and how to be a better one.
My upbringing taught me chivalry, so it's meant as a sign of respect and affection when I pull out a chair for you or open a door. IвЂ™ve also learned when to apologize, and that discretion is, in fact, sometimes the better part of valor. I'll do my best to be your strongest advocate and, when necessary, your gentlest critic. I want to be with someone who will do the same for me. More importantly, I know that nothing you wear could EVER make you look fat!
If youвЂ™ve made it to the bottom of this narrative, youвЂ™re probably either breathing a (huge) sigh of relief or enthusiastically composing a message/reply to me. If the latter is true, I truly appreciate your effort, and rest-assured that IвЂ™m saving a (or, hopefully, the last) dance for youвЂ¦
Date a soulmate from California, United States. I was a student going for my Bachelors of Science in Environmental Geology, and I am also a full time heavy equipment operator. I love to ski, board, hike, rock-climb, horse-back ride, and hike. If it is outdoors, then I am there. I enjoy a night of music(rock, jazz, blues,hip-hop)maybe with some dancing(I have taken salsa lessons but I have to find a way to shake off the "white guy" in my moves). I don't care as long as we are having some laughs). Laughter, whether we laugh at ourselves or at a situation, can be the best aphrodisiac!
I want to desire and show my love daily and often. Sometimes with just a slow, long, passiontionate kiss. And yes, I like to show my affections in public ( to a point or things just get crazy)!
Meet someone special from California, United States. I am single in my 40's and looking for meture ladies who love company of a meture gentleman.
I love dining out, catch a moview or paint the city by dancing the night away. I love dancing, so if you are looking for companion to go to dance clubs, I am all yours.
Date a soulmate from Winnetka, United States. Women are always saying they want a man with a sense of humor. Well, then, you have come to the right profile! I am an easy-going, fun-to-be-with, down-to-earth guy looking for the same in a woman. I know I'm not very tall, but on the bright side, you won't have to stand on tip-toes to kiss me. I am bright, kind, charming, educated and with the aforementioned sense of humor that runs the gamut from sharp to silly. A great mixture of wit and wisdom. Approachable, friendly, outgoing. I am stable and IвЂ™ll keep things interesting. IвЂ™ve been described as a bright light under a bushel basket, waiting to be discovered.
Serious side: a bit more layered than the typical male, but not so complex that youвЂ™ll need a guide book. A bit curmudgeonly, but not really; more lovable than anything else. Sometimes stubborn, but I usually acquiesce. I have my opinions, but I can be swayed. I like tradition, both old and new. I believe in common sense and courtesy. I prefer talking, not texting. I can get deep into a good conversation. I donвЂ™t boast or brag (except here; one sort of has to). Integrity is important and IвЂ™m known for mine. I know when to stand up, stand down, pick my battles wisely, and IвЂ™m nobodyвЂ™s doormat.
Fun side: IвЂ™d much rather hug, laugh and hug again! I stay in shape with hiking, walking, the occasional softball game. Love a good game of pool, too. I like to sing and can switch easily from Bach to Beach Boys. I like to dance. I'm innately rhythmical, but you have to show me the steps. Even perform in the creative arts when the muse so beckons. I can make a joke to lighten the mood or make a point. I love the old b/w movies (too bad life isn't like that any more). I like to dress appropriately for the occasion (people are too вЂ?casualвЂ™). I like going out or staying in. Up for anything. Life is full of small, but wonderful things.
Romantic side: love to hug, hold hands, kiss, be chivalrous, trade glances, succumb to the moment.
Basically, I'm a nice, normal guy of good parents. IвЂ™m of good heart, mind and character. The best part of my life is my circle of friends. It is said you can judge a man by the friends he keeps. Well, I have many good ones. But none takes the place of that special someone.
I am looking for my partner in life and love. No more вЂ?just friendsвЂ™. I donвЂ™t mind going to places alone, but I'd much rather go with someone. Someone who can laugh, cry, anger, forgive, love (but not all in the same moment. Whew!). Someone to count on and learn from, with a bright mind, a great smile, a good laugh. Eyes full of warmth and welcome. Please know by now whatвЂ™s important in life. Yes, everyone is active and travels, and who doesnвЂ™t like fine dining? These things aren't important. ItвЂ™s the good in a person that counts, not the stamps in a passport. The good they do, not the goods they have. Relationships can be as easy or as hard as you make them. Not every moment can be exciting, nor should it be, but IвЂ™ll guarantee not every moment will be wasted. I want to share these moments of care, fun, thoughtfulness, romance. My definition of a good relationship: I make her laugh, she makes me smile.
About money: it seems it can be very important to some women. I am cautioned by the profiles that say they're looking for a man "to laugh with and love with"...but down in the fine print he has to make six figures. I admit IвЂ™m not a millionaire. So if youвЂ™re still reading, donвЂ™t worry. I am financially responsible. I can be generous to the right woman. Like me for me, not the size of my wallet.
With acquired wisdom, IвЂ™m using an opportunity of change to reassess, reinvent, relearn, and do some charity and volunteering. Putting my ducks in a row while I start a new chapter in my life. Would like to start it with someone special. I may not be everything on your wish list, but no one ever is. So skip the wink and send a message. Test that chemistry. Life is too short. LetвЂ™s put our ducks together

Date single man from United States. I am a golf nut and go to Dodger games during the summer and have fun all the time. I am retired and have time to do everything that I've ever wanted to do. One of the most important things that I'd like to do is find someone to share those things with. I'm honest, trustworthy, caring and sensitive. I like to travel by planes, trains, automobiles, and of course, motorcycles (I have a Harley and love to ride). I also like the movies, plays (including musicals), and rock and roll and jazz concerts. I also love the blues. Although I do like to go out for a wonderful dinner with some great wine, I also like home cooked meals (I'm not a very good cook other than the basics) with a bottle of even better wine from my wine cellar. I also like moonlit walks on the beach or anywhere else with a good companion. I like animals and had a wonderful dog, Bandy. I like to laugh alot and I'm a good listener. If you're someone who likes at least some of the same things that I do and have a desire to meet someone that you might have a good time with, send me an e-mail. If you like romantic evenings, having candle-lit dinners with good wine, and long walks, you might be the woman for me and I might be the man for you. What do you have to lose by dropping me a line?
Meet people from United States. I grew up in the suburbs of Thousand Oaks, CA. I have recently relocated to Los Angeles, after spending the last few months in Oregon. Currently studying at CSUN. When I'm not busy studying, I spend most of my time out and about, let it be west LA, east LA, the valley, or my hometown. I'm really laid back and outgoing. I can be a total homebody, but I like to go out and have fun as well. I've always been the type to get along with the guys better than the girls. I can be kind of shy at first, but once I open up, I'm very sociable. I'm pretty easy going, maybe quirky, and honest. I'm not much of a club goer; I'm more of a lounge, dive bar type. But I love music and love to go to shows and concerts. I play the piano, but itching to learn the acoustic guitar. I'm a huge foodie and love to eat. Thank goodness for my metabolism. But I am trying to get myself to work-out more often, haha. I like doing pilates and yoga (LA much?). I don't like watching sports on TV, but if you do, that's fine. I like playing sports. I love to surf. I can barely stand, but I'll get there! I love the beach/water in general. Tennis has been my sport since high school. I enjoy the driving range and shooting range. Hiking. Snowboarding is fun as well. When I'm not out doing a physical activity, you can find me geeking out with games, reading, sleeping, watching movies, etc. If you want to know more about me...just ask!
And companion wise...
I know no one is perfect, but if you can make me laugh, that's a great sign. I want to meet someone I can rely on. Someone that will always be there for me. They have to be genuine, caring, honest and respectful. Won't mind me going out and doing my own thing and having my own life. I'd like to meet someone who's willing to go out and have a crazy night, and at times, doesn't mind staying in and cuddling up watching movies. Someone that's laid back and chill. Someone who I can carry on a conversation with. I am looking for a person who loves me for who I am, and doesn't seek to point out my flaws or change me. I'd like to meet someone that brings out the best of me, and who I can do the same for.
