Date men and women from Alabama, United States. Thanks for checking out my ad.
Happy man here looking to meet new friends to enjoy life - maybe that special someone. I am a native San Franciscan, love life, photography, motorcycling, fine foods/wines and spending time with family and friends. I love the outdoors (a true sun whore) from walks/hiking to picnics and biking.
I have a strong enthusiasm for life and a well developed sense of play with a sweet and generous spirit. I am an open minded, progressive thinker and good sense of humor.
I am blessed with having an 11 year old son. My son is with me 50% of the time so you must be able to understand my discretion during these times. It would take several months of dating before I would introduce him to you. With that said you would still be an intregal part of his life. My son bonds quickly with others and you will need to be able to respect and handle that bond.
I have recently introduced my son to riding his bike in the rain and the joys a large puddle can bring to the day ...
Camping has never been a big thing for me. My definition of camping used to be a Hotel with no room service. But I am now getting more into it with my son and friends. We bring our Mountain Bikes with us whenever we can.
For me, there is no such "Laundry List" for a perfect match. It is the blend of many - the smile, the laugh, a broad view on life, a progressive mindset and being happy with who you are.
A few thoughts towards my partner ...
We all have baggage. Learn from it and move forward. Be happy!
This world needs more people having respect for others
Prefer those who embrace diversity and understand how wonderful it is to have it all around us.
Please speak your mind and be yourself.
Everything starts with the kiss and the kiss will always kindle the fire.
Happy with who you are
Be comfortable in your own skin. It is your inner strengths that count.
I have learned to see what my part is in life, actions and consequences. Hopefully your eyes are open too.
Sensual and Physical
Love the sensuality of our souls and the deepness in our love making. The physical communications is very important.
Love to cuddle and be comfortable in your skin.
Meet people from Alabama, United States. a little shy, but outgoing, willing to take chances,going to new places meeting new faces.I enjoy accomplishments of finishing what I start and enjoy the great outdoors. I want someone in a meaningful loving relationship . If you want what every person deserves in a relationship we could work it out . nothing comes easy and I understand that commitment to a relationship is the most important thing
Date a man from Alabama, United States. Ha, this is too serious a profile, but Im not changing it! I am too serious! I think born that way. Basically, I'm a romantic, but expanded beyond relationship with lover. A Camelot/ French medieval optimism of life and art of life combined with Buddhist psychology and Sermon on the Mount.(very tricky). I want someone who really loves and honors both me and themselves. Who Is affectionate. Listens to my feelings, and I to their's. Mutuality, not identity, with most of relationship. I want a casual relationship to start, not the expectation that it will be forever--way too much pressure. That's all I need to say, but will fill out details, as many profiles are terse. I do have a lighter side. I eat ice cream daily. I have a range of interests, but especially art and photography--visual arts.. I would like to open a gallery, and would love a partner ( I would do it for the love of it; I realize it's very hard to even break even first year or two running a gallery). Also love the human voice; mostly singer songwriters, women more than men. I like the outdoors: hiking and backpacking, or diving and photographing underwater. Try to get to Eastern Sierra for backpacking or just hiking or camping often, but access in winter a problem. I am learning tennis, and want tennis partner (no experience needed just desire) I want to just lie down sometimes and do nothing-absolutely nothing-lying in grass, looking at moon , counting shooting stars. I'm a cancer doctor. Cut practice to half-time this year. I do believe meaning of life is one of service to each other in very small (a smile) or large ways. Live in Lafayette, and don't want to travel more than 30 min. I read like a fiend. Mostly non-fiction. I want a travel companion, Have traveled alone, but it's not the same. I'm smart, esp. verbally smart, (though intellectually, not nearly as smart as at 20) ,funny (English irreverent or idiotic), most say very interesting,very well-educated (over-educated), still pretty good-looking, moody at times. I tend to feel things too deeply. Usually insightful, again with occasional black holes. More emotional than rational. Often to blunt. Maybe even here. Extremely open-minded. Very non-judgmental. Definitely off-beat and idiosyncratic. I have a big heart, though, as with most of us, lapses when true empathy eludes me .Friends say I look like 50-52 or below , not 57, and I sure don't act 57! I have lots of baggage and a wealth of life experience to go with it.. In terms of relationships, friendship first (so trite). . Physical closeness can be very good way of communicating and love just being held. Through my job and relationships, I have learned to listen to feelings when expressed. Sometimes can add insight to them. Very hard thing to learn, really learn. I'm not as good as MSW's, but good. I want to deal at feelings level, not just activities level. At that level, we can help each other make it through rough patches. Our potential relationship should generate little drama. I have caused plenty of problems and drama, in back and forth, of even potentially great relationships; learned a ton about myself but can't handle much stress anymore. (though at one time, I almost welcomed it, oddly enough, as child of alcoholic) . That means no hurt feelings, no false ideas, etc.; just someone to call ,and hangout with, whom I really like. Expectations on dating site need to be kept in check. Often you know someone for years before even dating-- doesn't work that way here. Again, every person in your life brings out a different side of you. Bring out parts of me I didn't know were there. Let's have some fun, please, let's have some fun. And please say yes to offer for just a coffee date if some of this resonates. I read your profile, not just looked at picture! If I email it means I really want to meet you. David ( Images were taken by me last year in Patagonia; i.e. except my windblown sunburn photo).
Meet someone special from Alabama, United States. Open to exploring relationship. Love hanging out, walking, hiking and talking. A quiet evening, with a glass of wine, in front of a fire is heaven to me. I live in the country, in a very quiet setting. Cooking a fresh organic meal with someone else is fun. I am vegetarian, but have no problem with others eating meat. Have traveled extensively and plan to continue. I have my two daughters half time, week on week off, and I love being a father. Backpacking, hiking and camping, just being out is nature are my favorite things to do
I am looking for a partner to share my life. Really a best friend. Honesty and openness are most important to me. The deeper the conversation, the better. Healthy and physical active.
Date single man from Alabama, United States. I am quick to smile and enjoy an active life style. Skiing is my passion and liberating. I love music, the outdoors and long road bike rides.
I love the solitude and beauty of the mountains, yet enjoy a great dinner in the City. An evening spent quietly reading the paper, watching a movie or some sporting event is how I like to spend my weeknights.
Meet a soulmate from Alabama, United States. I value a true friendship. Honesty and integrity are key

Though I am some what quiet.
I have traveled quite a bit I just finished a three years assignment overseas in Asia.
I enjoy golf and the out door.
Would love to go visit the base camp in the Himalayas one day with some one adventurous.
Date men and women from United States. I'm kind of a walking dichotomy: A Biker with a heart. A Bouncer with a brain. A guy who has always enjoyed edgy situations, but loves acting in theatre stage plays. I'm happiest on my motorcycle, but love gettin' into the kitchen and turning out some amazing meals. (Let me bake you some homemade bread!) I'm bright, funny, ballsy and mischevious, with a wicked sense of humor. I'd like to find someone that is attractive, (But I find attractiveness, in MANY different ways...) intelligent, (Intelligence, is VERY important!) funny, adventurous, confident and outgoing. I enjoy laughter and good conversation with good friends. Actually, I enjoy interaction with a LOT of different types of people and am quite happy to strike up conversation with complete strangers, just to explore who they might be. I'm 3 years out of a relationship and am gettin' pretty tired of riding solo.
Meet people from United States. I'm 57, but I don't look a day over 48. Newly single after 15 years of marraige. I think the funniest men ever born were Groucho Marx and William F. Buckley, Jr. I laugh a lot, and I brood sometimes. I have many roads taken: actor, commercial fisherman, singer-songwriter, trial paralegal.
I would like to meet someone as easy-going and as driven as I; who listens to the glistening stars and remembers yesterday's wind, but goes to work in the morning and Gets It Done. Someone who has made a life of her own, and wants to share. Someone with yesterdays who still believes in tomorrows.
OK, that's kind of sappy. But you asked.
Date a woman from United States. Just moved back to the east bay after 4 fun years living in the city. Now I feel I have the best of both worlds: I can enjoy leafy Lafayette with nice warm summers and hop on BART to go to my parttime job in the city. I'm semi-retired after 30 years of corporate marketing (doing consumer research and loving it), and really enjoy my new lifestyle.
I have a relaxed, fairly positive, outlook on life, with just enough cynicism and pragmatism to keep me out of trouble. I like to be proactive in life, but I enjoy unexpected surprises along the way, too. I have two wonderful sons (ages 23 and 26) who are on their own now. I like to hike, dance, listen to music, read, go out to dinner, and engage in lively conversations with new acquaintances or old friends. I like to try new things and meet new people who are intelligent, mature but goofy, and have a sense of humor about themselves. I like spending time with people who are open-minded and accepting of others' beliefs and values, even if they don't match my own.
I'm not necessarily looking for a soul mate--I think everyone has a different idea of what that means anyway. I don't have a list of must-haves, but I know what I like when I see it. I feel like this is the time of life for exploring options.. If you agree, would love to hear from you.
Meet people from United States. Psychologically aware, spiritually-centered, intelligent, articulate, happy woman... Genuine, with an open mind and an ever-more-open heart... Strong and also tender... Intense at times, playful and mischievous at other times.
I am passionate about living with integrity, depth, generosity, and kindness.
I am inspired by these words from Dr. King: "Love is not the answer. Love is the assignment."
I know that happiness does not come from always getting more and supposedly "better" stuff.
I've been teaching teenagers for more than 30 years. Like them, mostly... Recently retired from 11 years of teaching at juvenile hall, am working part-time as a tutor and SAT-Prep teacher... Have most Fridays off, a delightful thing.
When I'm not working, I'm dancing NIA or Zumba, reading, writing, spending time with family and friends, starting a container garden at my new home, exploring new places and ideas, and interested in other adventures as well. I enjoy hiking, making music listening to music (I love to sing and am part of a women's choir), theater, museums, day trips, road trips... Sometimes I take classes to improve my Spanish or learn more about NVC... I'm a long-time member of a women's circle and have recently begun participating in the Waking Down in Mutuality community, which offers an approach to spiritual awakening, embodied consciousness, and deep interpersonal relationships.
The spiritual dimension of life is very important to me - although that's a misleading statement, since everything in life is spiritual, whether we see it that way or not. Underneath the stories, our lives are actually about growing and deepening and unfolding into who we truly are... and connecting profoundly to something greater than our individual selves. I'm best partnered with a man who shares this orientation, though our journeys may look different on the outside. There are many paths up the mountain.
I'd love to share lots of things with my partner, from the deeply serious to the playful and fun... and also I know that *what* we do together matters much less than *how* we do it. Even doing chores together can be fun, if there's sweetness and laughter, playful teasing, or singing while we work.
My youngest child has gone off to college (UCLA)... My nest is empty - and I am free to fly. Care to join me?
Date single man from United States. I canвЂ™t think of anyplace else I would rather be than right here in Colorado. I love being outdoors and like to get out on weekends. I enjoy going for long walks. One of my favorite places is Estes Park. I have been going there for years and feel at home among the pines. I am content to stay at home though, and enjoy the simple pleasures like reading the newspaper or listening to music on the stereo. I like dining out, but could just as easily stay home and cook. When I go out, I donвЂ™t care for bars. I would rather go to dinner, take in a movie or go to a concert. I am looking for an attractive woman that has similar interests, one that appreciates a good conversation and is capable of loving me for who I am. She should be caring and trustworthy and be interested in having a meaningful relationship. If any of this sounds interesting to you, please write to me and we will see where it goes from there.
Meet a soulmate from United States. I express my emotions openly. I am pretty much an open book. I try to be a good person, and I think I'm successful, most of the time. I don't use drugs and I don't drink heavily, and I look for that in a mate. Honesty is important. I don't like game playing. I would prefer that my woman like outdoor activities, like hiking and cycling. I can spend an everning watching the discovery channel, but would prefer having the adventures myself. I think I'm pretty middle of the road, politically, but I would probably get along with a liberal better than a concervative. I don't care what your religion is, as long as you're not fanatical about it. I'm looking for my best friend, with benefits.
