Date someone special from California, United States. New York City born and bred. Needed to go to the opposite extreme.Loved the city,but now I love the serenity. Living on a mountaintop in Santa Cruz. Growing food and learning to be self sustaining. I'm running my own real estate brokerage and am finally getting moving after 4 years. I am a bohemian man at heart with a business mind. I love the jam band scene.I spent 10 years with Jerry and the Dead. If you know who that is, then maybe we are a match. Music that makes me move. I love to rip it with the hippies......
The things I dream of....single, never married, no children. Self sustaining and independent. Motivated, goal oriented.... You want? I want? Let's go get!
I want a hot, sweet, natural flowing romance. I want to flirt, dance, snuggle, relate, communicate and feel the wonder of love.
Sound good to you? Let's see if it could be...
Hello again..ladies...It is May 17, 2012....I have been on match for over two years now....I have written hundreds of emails to hundreds of local women. (Not further than San Jose) I have tried all sorts of different kinds of emails....from long and heartfelt with character to short and funny (to me anyway).....I have gotten a few responses which dwindled to nothing and exactly two dates with two different women that decided I was worth meeting but never saw again.....Who can help me try to get a better response ratio and tell me what I can do better?
I can't imagine there are so many hippie men in Santa Cruz who have never been married and have no kids and actually have a career , substance, and security. I am not fat and have hair still (it is even not gray yet). Seems to me that I would be somewhat of a catch to most Santa Cruzans who just soaked up the facts and looked around a bit, but hey, chemistry is unexplainable. What is better than a first date to figure that out?
Romance is a life changer...chivalry is not dead, I am a romantic....looking for a spark to flow.....
Meet single man from United States. About Me:
I am not sure about this whole Match.com service but am hoping to meet a female companion to share life with!
I am optimistic by nature. I wake up happy and look forward to each day. I have been blessed with happy chemicals in my system I believe. I like to stay busy and enjoy getting out and surfing, biking, running, walking the dog or just about anything that includes the outdoors. Relaxing to me does not include staying home on the weekends watching football or TV. If I am going to relax I would prefer to be lying on the beach. Taking a walk along the coast with my dog and a friend is also very relaxing. I live a clean healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly. I go to the gym a few times a week to take care of the essential cardio and resistance training to maintain fitness and truly do enjoy it. But when time allows I much prefer exercise in longer sessions outdoors doing the fun things. I want to do all of these things with a mate.
Someone recently told me they were looking forward to a quiet weekend alone. This sounded horrible to me! I am a people person. I want to be around others and especially want someone special to share in everything life has to encompass. That includes the grocery shopping, house chores, preparing meals etc., from making coffee to doing the dishes together at night. I want to be close always bumping into my companion and hugging and kissing playfully. I am very affectionate physically and I want a relationship where others take notice of how we greet each other with a hug, squeeze, and a kiss. And how we are always holding hands or how when we are sitting we sit are as close as two people can physically while sitting. I want to have my arm around my companion when waiting in line for coffee and will want to be able to kiss her when she laughs at something while laughing myself. Affection is not something I want to hide.
I donвЂ™t sweat the little stuff and am not irritable. I am not particular about insignificant things and like to live and let live. I am light hearted and want everyone around me to be happy and feel loved. Grace and kindness go a long way I believe.
I like to go out on Friday and Saturday nights when I can. Going out to me is happy hour with a drink or two and appetizers or dinner at a cozy restaurant. Late nights at bars and partying are not for me. Listening to music in the bar lounge area at the Shadowbrook in Capitola is perfect. So is sitting by the fire at the Red Room in Santa Cruz. Staying home is ok too! Talking and cuddling on the sofa while sharing in some wine and cheese would be nice.
I love my kids! I have poured my life into them while they were growing up. Now they are happy healthy teenagers with a lot of friends. I encourage them to have their friends over as I love being around young people and donвЂ™t mind the craziness having a group of teenagers around can entail. However they are now usually out with their friends and that leaves me with spare time I have not had in years. I am looking for someone to spend that time with!
I am a believer in the gospel and grace. I am not religious or judgmental.
I grew up in San Jose but my heart and soul belongs in Santa Cruz County now. I live in the mountains and it is beautiful. However my long term goal is to be on the coast within walking distance to the coastline.
Who IвЂ™m Looking For:
Someone who can relate to what IвЂ™ve said about me and who is like hearted, like minded, and like spirited.
Date single man from Ben Lomond, United States. I am an easy going adult that is a kid at heart and enjoy making people laugh. I love to take photographs paint and draw...this give me the opportunity to express myself while sharing this with others. My current passion is riding my Harley...whether it be in the cool air of the morning or cruising down the coast in the summertime.
Meet people from Ben Lomond, United States. Well, I am from a large family (3 brothers and 3 sisters, I'm the 6th of 7), lots of nephews and nieces, would have loved to have had kids, but it just didn't work out for me (tell you about that if we connect). I am very family oriented with old fashioned type values. Travel is one of my passions; most recently I have traveled to Turkey (totally underrated) and Greece, the Dominican Republic, Italy, Indonesia, and Mexico. Some of my favorite activities are to enjoy life on the coast and in the mountains of Northern California. I am an avid outdoors-man, with a primary interest in surfing, although I often bike (both mountain and road), hike, snowboard, golf, and backpack. I workout in the gym often along with jogging outside (don't care for doing it in the gym on a treadmill); nothing like the outdoor fresh air and views! I enjoy live music, going to museums, theater, live sporting events, and reading books on every subject. The past few years I've been doing a ton of home improvement projects, with the last remodel being a new kitchen, which came out beautiful! Born and raised in the Bay Area, my plans are to stay here, and continue my career in the high-tech industry.
On the personality side, I am an active listener and really enjoy good conversation. Family and friendships are important to me and I'd love to share them. Quotes from a couple of my friends: "Tom is a great guy, a very sweet, helpful, and caring person. Loves to talk, easy going, always smiling. A very precious friend to have. Has that social gene gift" - Claire. "A surfing buddy you can count on. True and warmhearted, Tom is a friend anyone would dream of having." - Bill---Of course this is just a start, as there's lots more to tell and share with the right person, so if any of this sounds interesting to you I would really enjoy hearing from you.The big idea is to share: time, fun, friends, stories, support each other in any way we can. I would like to find someone who will enjoy tagging along for a fun time, whether it's a weekend trip to Tahoe, wine tasting, traveling the world together, or a late afternoon bike ride in Santa Cruz -- someone who will drag me along for new adventures, too. You're easy going, you like to enjoy simple pleasures and know that it's even better to enjoy them together. Good communication is a must! Life is so much better going through it with someone who has your best interest and support than doing it alone. I hope we can all find that. Keep the faith!
Date men and women from California, United States. вЂ¦ what a wonderful nursery rhyme.
I like to think I have no enemies or adversaries, truly! I have a subtle sense of humor that often goes unnoticed, even though I tell folks - the safest response to anything I say is simply to laugh. The zodiac signs are interesting to me. Though I doubt I would make important decisions based solely on that sort of information, I think there is something to it. I know many donвЂ™t think so, but what I donвЂ™t understand is why some people avoid showing their sign. I fit the description of a Capricorn man very well, except I have always been family oriented. Honest, hard working, caring, loyal, inquisitive, healthy and happy are just some words that describe me.
I have learned, at least on this site, вЂњseparatedвЂќ is not a good word to describe oneself. ThatвЂ™s fair, but I feel my status is more like divorced than separated. We had reasons to delay the divorce, but my healing started last summer. Now all the legal stuff has been take care of, and weвЂ™re just waiting on the courts. LetвЂ™s see, what else вЂ¦ I live in a nice home, which I can maintain and keep clean all on my own. I have done my own laundry ever since my mother taught me, a long ago. I have a stable career with no drama in my life. I have no вЂњneedsвЂќ at this time, and I certainly have no complaints. There is so much to be grateful for! However it would be nice to find someone special, after all isnвЂ™t that why weвЂ™re here?
I like to travel some, but itвЂ™s not a huge priority. In the last few years IвЂ™ve gone to Costa Rica, made it to Venice Italy, plus a couple of trips to Hawaii. I really enjoy being at home, and I am lucky enough to live in a beautiful place. Heck - some people travel great distances to visit Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz mountains, itвЂ™s a wonderful place! I have no issues being by myself; I often enjoy gardening or riding my bicycle alone. The best times for me include family and/or friends (not being alone - hahaha), but I also like to get out. A ski trip at Lake Tahoe, camping in Big Basin, weekend of wine tasting, a day on a secluded beach - all sound like a great time to me! Well, maybe those arenвЂ™t good first dates вЂ“ donвЂ™t you think it would be better to start off meeting for a coffee or tea?
Meet a man from United States. Writer, teacher, entrepreneur, outdoors guy looking for that special gal who is competent, loving and kind. Life is here to be enjoyed as much as it is to be taken seriously and thoughtfully.
Looking for smarts and savvy, aliveness and passion for life, smiles and thoughtfulness. I don't take myself too seriously, and tend to roll with things, so please don't be a princess, high maintenance, or feel a need to change me. I'm pretty good just as I am.
Interested in meeting a special woman who happens to be single вЂ“ realizing that this is possibly a long shot вЂ“ who is ultimately looking for a long-term relationship and has the relationship skills to make it happen.
I'm no saint, but I am a compassionate soul who has spent a lifetime helping others. Still do, actually, though I have headed down my own path far from the distant crowd. and it feels good out here. Fresh air, the sound of a water, soil with the heady scent that knocks you over with appreciation for this wonderful Earth.
I've lived a wild and wonderful life, some people say lifetimes. IвЂ™ve given, loved, learned, and grown. IвЂ™v been both poor and well off, and learned that wealth is in the heart. But feeling all along that I had just one opportunity at life, who wouldn't live it to its max!
Just one thing missing, and that's you. I know you are out there, and trust that one day we will meet. Until thenвЂ¦

Meet men and women from Ben Lomond, United States. Welcome home to my heart,
Jump, and I will catch you.
I have held wild animals in my hands,
I have been in love.
I have heard the earth breathe.
My life has changed me.
I am 63. No more solo SCUBA or winter backpacking. Long walks, yes. But "long" becomes a fluid term. I am healthy and in good shape for my age.
I find I am not who I was. I have become quiet. I don't quite recognize this and I am not sure I like it. Yet I am comfortable in my skin. I am still growing and changing as we must all do. My partner must be a part of that as I must be a part of her changes.
I am emotionally available and have the time for a relationship!
No night owls please. You must love dogs, cats, children, yourself, and the occasional phoenix.
You are smart/intelligent,
You are nurturing, warm, and loving,
You are petite, thin or at least height/weight proportional.
You will, I hope, be financially secure because I am starting over from the beginning.
Language is important. We must speak the same language, be willing to compromise and talk things out. Our language of love must be compatible.
I love wood. I love the way it looks and smells, and the sound it makes coming off a plane blade somewhere between scissors and tearing paper. I love making things.
I love nature and seeing all the small things and being still enough to hear the earth breathe.
I love gardening and have plants that belonged to my grandmother. I collect seeds and usually have some in my pockets.
I love the beach at dawn..half a mile of footprints leading from the dark to day.
I love clamming and foraging on the coast or hunting mushrooms.
I love cuddling by a fire. I love reading. I love intimacy and affection.
I want to share my life. I want to cook for someone I love.
Life is so much fuller and easier with the right partner. I want my
"last partner." Ultimately I want to find someone with a house and land as I have lost mine and cannot regain such again on my own.
I was raised on science fiction and still prefer it. I used to collect children's books.
I like movies for fun more than movies with a message.
I like folk and classic rock, Kate Wolf, Phil Ochs, Leonard Cohen, old country and western, Hawaiian, Souza, and some of the classics and world music.
I like most food. Love feeding others.
I love helping others.
I am a morning person. Best if used before ten P.M.!
I remember barefoot summers,
pretending I couldn't hear my mother calling me to dinner.
Now I'm the cook,
I don't know,
Sometimes I see my unexpected reflection...
without a trace of recognition.
I am looking for a place to plant my roots. My heart needs a home.
By the way, I am clean shaved now, no beard. Not exactly soft, but not furry either. Which do you like better?

Meet people from Ben Lomond, United States. I care about all the people and other living creatures on this planet. I come from a very positive loving family, and do still have the qualities I learned growing up.
My history: I grew up in a Southern California beach town. In the early 60's it was folk music in clubs then on to he San Francisco hip scene. I eventually settled down and went to work for 30 years in San Jose first as a technician and then an electrical engineer designing aircraft displays.
I'm divorced (for a long time) with a wonderful son and grandson. I can count 24 years in three of my relationships and am on good terms with the women that have been in my life (I have treated them well).
I am fit and exercise regularly, I'm very young for my age.
I have a daily meditation practice and study Tibetan Buddhism (the Dalai Lama's lineage). I like art and music allot of course love the outdoors weekend trips out of town, love to go to Europe etc...
What kind of person an I looking for? Well money doesn't matter so much. The wisdom of a kind heart.
I do seek out and find the positive and beautiful things in life whether that would be art, music, philosophy or a day at the beach. Someone who likes to do those things too, that would be good.
In closing to you all:
Remember, your love belongs to you - no one can take it away from you
