Date a man from United States. Einstein said, "I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity." True enough for me, but being alone too much is not perfect. So, I am curious about this match.com process. It is possible that you and I, whoever you might be, would want to spend some time getting to know each other. Living in Forest Ranch, California is conducive to peaceful, independent, contemplative living but the point has been reached for me to seek being alone, less often. Having been married before, I have experienced the comfortable feeling that can come from being a couple and not an individual only. I work in the Town of Paradise at least four days a week. It would be nice to meet a female companion who lives in the Paradise/Magalia area. Of course, Forest Ranch, Chico and beyond are OK too.
Taking long walks on the beach, by the Redwoods, by the river, to the lake, in the park, alone, are all very nice but there is also something very appealing to taking those walks as a couple. The same can be said for going to a play, a museum, or a ballgame. The attraction to less populated places like long, mostly deserted beaches or somewhat unpopulated trails is great for me but there is something to be said for world class museums or major league baseball.
Like many people, it has been a fantasy to think that writing could extend to a grand novel or at least a dynamic collection of short stories but again, like most of those people, that has never happened for me. But, communicating through the written word, which seems to have translated these days to emails, is something that can be pretty illuminating. If you are reading this would like to send me and email, I surely will reply.
Meet people from California, United States. This is a hard thing for me to do. I'm not necessarily looking for "the one", but if that happens, great! I'm mostly looking for members of the opposite sex who would like to share low-key, fun activities and perhaps develop lasting friendships/relationships. I'm not much of a go-out-to-dinner-and-a-movie kind of guy, or someone who frequently goes to plays and concerts, but those activities aren't out of the question for me. I tend to like outdoor activities, and seem to do them less often without a little push from a partner/companion. I'm hoping to meet people who share the same interests and might want to share them with me.
I'm a little reluctant to participate in this "blind date" type of scenario, but, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I just wish I were better able to follow the "nothing ventured, nothing gained" advice! I hope if you think that we might be a "match" that you'll respond in some way other than a "wink". Please be patient, as it might take me awhile to work up the nerve to respond. If I'm out of your "mileage range", I enjoy traveling to new places/areas so please don't eliminate me on that basis alone. Thanks!
