Date someone special from California, United States. I consider myself a loyal, social, success-driven individual with a positive outlook on life.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I moved to Austin for work in 2006 and relocated back to LA in July 2010. I'm looking to meet someone who is down to earth, positive, career and fitness-oriented, and who doesn't take herself too seriously. This would ideally be a woman who would enjoy travelling, dining out, recreational activities, sports, group activities as well as one-on-one time. I do not approach dating as an end game; the journey should be its own reward.
I believe that two people can maintain their own separate identities, personalities, activities and even friends, thus forming a "complimentary synergy", as distinguished from fusion, assimilation or duplication. While I would like to have a family, I would prefer to remain single than settle since, at the end of the day, happiness must come from within.
I don't adhere to a particular faith, and those in my family that do are primarily secular Muslim. Although I am accepting of all religions, I don't think I would be a good fit with someone who is religious or subject to the demands of religious parents.
Finally, I'm not interested in a long distance relationship or pen pal, so if you live more than 50 miles away, its probably not going to work unless you travel to LA often (or virtual technology advances to a state never before imagined).
Meet single man from California, United States. I'm not great at describing myself, so this will be brief. I'm a reasonably intelligent, thoughtful person. I'm just smart enough to know that I'm no genius...
I'm originally from the midwest, and I've lived several places in the US, but none of them even compared to the bay area. I'm glad that I have the opportunity to live in such a great place.
I love music (all kinds, just no country), books, films, museums, and just walking around the city with no plan at all. Of course, all of these things are better when you have someone to share them with.
I hope to hear from you soon!
Date people from California, United States. So how do I get my dynamic personality across in a profile? ;)
Very nice guy who knows how to treat a girl with the best of them. Intelligent, well educated, confident, driven/passionate, successful, funny, spontaneous, fit/athletic, charismatic, outgoing and super fun. I try to make the most of every day and live as my friends would say "high on life". I love to make those around me do nothing but smile and laugh. I definitely have a bounce in my step and blessed with a great amount of energy.....simply a zest for life!!!
My friends and family are the most important things in the world to me and I'm blessed to have it so great in these departments. I'm honest and wear my emotions on my sleeve. I don't like drama, I don't like games and I know that personally, I'm over dealing with any of that.
I'm very down to earth and can strike up a conversation with anyone. I love to joke around, can be sarcastic and love a good witty banter. I'm very athletic and try to play basketball at least 2x a week, which is one of my favorite things to do on the planet. Since I play ball with guys as tall as 6'8.....if you think my LEGIT 5'10 is not tall enough for you, feel free to bump me up a couple inches since I play with a bunch of trees ;) Besides hoops and my love for other sports, I also love music.....music is just a big part of my every day life....I listen whenever I can.
I'm looking for a girl with what I call the 4 S's: SWEET, SMART, SEXY and someone with SPUNK (in no particular order). I'd like my match to be goal-oriented, caring/loving, fun and just a quality person all the way around. What I want is a girl that is not only beautiful on the outside...but also on the inside (which is even more important). Personality is HUGE.....my ideal girl needs to have a good sense of humor as I'm quite the goofball....and hope she can handle that and let loose every now and then herself.
I really want a girl that is thoughtful and has a big heart....someone that knows how to be loved and love back. I want someone that knows what she wants in life...and isn't afraid to go after it. I want someone that appreciates what she has and not always worried about what she doesn't have....someone grounded, optimistic vs. pessimistic. Someone that values family like I do. A girl that doesn't mind watching a sporting event now and then. A girl that loves to experience new places as I love to travel (been to quite a few countries in different regions of the world, yet haven't even scratched the surface of where I want to go yet)......whether it's far away or just getting away for a weekend in Vegas or some other fun spot.
I guess I want a lot...but I think I have a lot to offer...and don't want to settle for just anyone! When I find that special girl....she will undoubtedly feel like the most important person on the planet.
Meet a soulmate from California, United States. I think what i find most attractive about a woman as a mate or even friend is honest interaction with the ability to make me laugh to tears.
I dig kindness and empathy for others even though it sometimes conflicts with humor.
I'm a pretty down-to-earth and passionate guy, I love my friends and family, animals, wine, food, travel, music, films, low drama kinda life. I work in entertainment but I'm not a douche. :) I'm not a hipster, but I am hip. :) I go out to live shows a lot, as well as theater, and movies, art shows. Sometimes I do charitable stuff, and most of my free time I enjoy spending with friends, creating something outta nothing, going to the gym, or playing tennis.
I dont take myself too seriously and I love going out posh as much as dive. The stache is not a everyday thing. But i figure if you can accept me with a stache well, thats a great start. I'm currently clean shaven.
I'm trying this online thing to meet some cool new people outside of my friend circle and well... one never knows....
okay... that is about all the " about me" I can stand.
Feel free to ask away!
Date men and women from California, United States. I am an open minded person who recently got out of a long term relationship. Honestly not sure if I am ready to start dating again but I want to at least meet some new people. I consider myself to be pretty liberal (think Occupy Oakland, just don't think hippy). However, I don't mind having intelligent conversations about politics, religion, etc. with someone who considers themselves conservative. I consider myself a bit of a geek. I like to fiddle with computers, cars, and gadgets. I get kinda geeky about things like wine and coffee but certainly not snobby. Things like that should be fun, and not taken too seriously. I like to cook. I'm no top chef, but I can find my way around a kitchen. I also like trying new restaurants from greasy spoons to fine dining. Love traveling, though I feel I haven't done it enough and would be great to find someone to share some trips with.
Looking for a someone who is open minded, caring, honest, and down to earth. Sounds generic, I know but I'm hoping to get to know someone for who they really are rather than try to fit them in a "box."
Meet a man from California, United States. I am a positive, fun-loving, eternal optimist. I am a dreamer that believes it's never too late for a persons dreams to come true and I actually refuse to settle until all of mine do! I am a serial entrepreneur and own several businesses that currently take up much of my time. So the idea of online dating intrigues me because it is efficient and I can't seem to find the free time (or desire) to creep around bars and cheesy clubs! haha Up until this point in my life, I have dated a lot, but finding someone that I feel has long term potential and compatibility with me has proven quite elusive. I am not complaining though, I am content being single as it is not without it's own charms and positive benefits. But whenever I do get into a relationship again, it will be because I have found an amazing person that is on my same level emotionally, spiritually, philosophically and is equally intelligent in their own right. Most importantly, they will be in in my life to compliment it, not complete it. So you never have to worry about any clingy, insecure, overbearing and pathetic control freak nonsense from my end! ;) In the meantime, I will continue to keep it light and try to squeeze as much fun and enjoyment out of life as it has to offer!
Date someone special from United States. A bit about me: I'm part Canadian. Part French. A former Pro Hockey player. Ran track in College and studied sciences.
What do I love most? My mother, my English Bulldog Boo and being successful in business.
I am also a fix it guy. I can build pretty much anything from my car to my computer. I am able to read the owners manual and actually understand it.
If I'm your friend, you have me for life. I'm stable, fun and funny. I can be a total goofball sometimes, and reveal my truest self to those closest to me. I can be serious when the time is needed. But a wisecrack is always welcome.
I'm a self starter . I own my own business that is now 5 years old. I love adventures and discovery; good restaurants (french genetics), countries or cities and all types of music. I am especially proficient in spanish guitar. I learned how to play the guitar and I love the music of Rodrigo Y Gabriela because I love the romantic sensuous style of the spanish guitar.
I don't drink because I believe it is unhealthy but I don't mind if you do. I workout 5 to 6 times a week and I love the feeling of being in shape.
I moved to Los Angeles 4 years ago and I am in love with this city! It is my final destination.
What I'm looking for: Someone soft, secure, funny and warm. A lover, a friend and a confidante. Physical, emotional and ready to reveal her deepest self and make a lifetime connection. I'd prefer someone 25-35. I have the most in common with women in that age range. Good luck to everyone!
Meet single man from United States. Looking for someone laid back and ready for adventure. Must have sense of humor and positive attitude.Im not looking to be changed or change anyone myself.I love the outdoors and nature.I also want someone who undestands the importance of family.
Date people from United States. Hi... so excited to be moving to Los Angeles after living in DC, TX, NC, and NY.... yes, btw, I did say Texas! After being raised in NY and living in the south for over 10 years... I was living in the DC area for a few years but was offered a promotion to move out to the "best" coast.... Looking forward to meeting new good friends (and maybe more) in the area... if something more develops, even better!
Hmmm.... why am I on match? Well, I guess I have gotten over the stigma of online dating and I guess I'm willing to take a chance to meet new people. And why not take a chance...
I'm seeking to expand my circle of friends... if something special comes from this then great! In either case, I'm sure I'll have plenty of funny stories to share from this... lol. I'd like to think that I've accomplished a lot already in my life -- great job, masters degree (just finished my second), house, car, puppy dog, etc... but would love to meet someone that is confident and shares similar interests. I love to travel and explore new places and people - I gravitate towards individuals who value learning something new everyday. But depending on my mood, I sometimes look forward to curling up with a book, hitting a museum, or watching a performance. At night, my preferences are diverse: plays, concerts (from alternative to classical), dancing, or just staying inside with a good movie. I'm also hooked on working out and being active - I definitely believe in taking care of my body as well as my mind :) . I like watching various sports but would much rather be participating and staying active (from hitting the gym to hiking to mountain-biking at the park) than being a couch potato. However, love my downtime at home too... I have a great job and am known to be very ambitious around the office. I can be very outgoing at times and reserved at others depending on who I'm out with... Hopefully someone can challenge me both intellectually and physically.I'm looking for an attractive, active, intelligent, wonderful woman that can be fun and laugh. Hopefully she likes to take care of herself mentally and physically. I believe friendships and relationships need to built on trust and selflessness. I like to take care of whomever I'm with and expect the same of them.
Meet a soulmate from United States. So I'm in Bahrain on my way to a meeting when I find myself walking past a military post and figure it'd be an awesome photo op. Just as I pull out my phone and snap the picture, the Chief Interior Minister of Bahrain passes by in a government vehicle, and the next thing I know my phone is being confiscated and I am being interrogated by the police... for the next two hours (though it felt like ten plus).
Sure, I've done the typical extreme sports like bungee jumping and skydiving, but I prefer the less common ones any day, like base jumping in Mexican caves and shark diving in my home country. I have never been much of a spectator (why sit back and watch someone else play when you can make the action yourself?)
Luckily, I have a background to match my exotic pursuits. I've lived and traveled just about everywhere imaginable вЂ“ I was born in South Africa, spent some time living in European countries like Ireland, Denmark, Sweden and the UK as well as US cities like Chicago, Miami, Boston, and Atlanta.
I am a sucker for beautiful landscapes and architecture, so I enjoy changes of scenery more often than not, but my dogs and my god-daughter don't keep me too far from home for long. Despite the amount of air miles I've logged, I'm really a very grounded person. If I am away from a friend or relative who gets in a jam, I'll be on the first flight out so I can be there to lend a hand (plus I have my pilot's license, so the first flight out is easy for me to make)...
My ideal woman is вЂ“ above all else вЂ“ positive, with a spirit of adventure and an enthusiasm that matches my own. Because my client demands keep my carry-on stocked with 3 oz. shampoos, it'd be incredible if she could meet me at the more exciting destinations I visit and share an occasional adventure with me. If the thought of sitting in the co-pilot's seat while I fly you to the top of a mountain with a bottle of champagne makes your stomach flip-flop, we probably won't get along. If it sounds like this'll fly with you, drop me a wink or a message and let's see where life takes us...
Date men and women from United States. Things I love: Outdoor movies in the summer. Black & white. Technicolor. Short stories. Long stories. The small of a woman's back. Seeing old movies projected in classic theatres, particularly ones with the pipe organ still intact, where you can almost feel the history in the room. Italian restaurants with cheesy red-checkered table cloths -- and if the waiters sing too, that's just beyond cool. Love scenes in old foreign films. Bold, lyrical melodies. Vinyl LPs. String lights. "E.T." The sound of an orchestra tuning up. Long phone calls with old friends. Telling stories. Travel to someplace meaningful. Finishing things I start. The silent meeting of the eyes that happens right before a first kiss. The moment when the lights go down right before a show starts.
If you think of your life as pretty great because no matter what the circumstances, you look for the good in things - and if you're not looking for someone to fill your loneliness, but are happy and looking for someone to make life even better...we should talk.
Meet a man from United States. This is that fun part where I get to talk about myself. Ok I'm down to earth easy going with a great sense of humor. You should have a good sense of humor too. Life is far to short to be so serious 24/7 so if you dont like to laugh thank you for viewing me but you should look at another profile. I have a great job that I love very much and have been there for a very long time. lets see what else? I'm shy at first but super outgoing once you get to know for more then 2 hours. I'm always on the go doing new things or getting out of town when I can, Not a whole lot of things to do in Humboldt County. I enjoy home life to and and have lots of BBq's in the summer time and enjoy cooking and enjoy working around my house as it seems my house is the gathering place for friends and family. I have my kids part time and family time is very important to me. Don't get me wrong I love getting out dancing and dining out too. If you would like to know more or see a profile pic send me a message because this writing all about me is not fun for anybody.
