Date a soulmate from California, United States. I like a good balance of work and play. I like to be spontaneous. Enjoying life relieves stress. Mini afternoon breaks, evening music events, dinning and dancing in Marin. Trips to the city or weekend get away to the sierras.
I'm a construction/contractor and entrepreneur and work hard at it but I work to live, not live to work. Although I mostly enjoy my work.
I live on 85 acre estate in North Marin, where I care for several horses.
I would like someone with similar interests but not the same, if you know what I mean. Someone who values the same things I do. I'm looking for a friend to enjoy live with and maybe an extended family.
Meet people from Inverness, United States. I'm a 65 year-old organic farmer, retired from cabinetmaking, Ivy League educated, then art school, but that was a long time ago. Divorced 7 years. I have the ability to be fairly sophisticated, but only every so often. Love the outdoors, animals, horses. Also reading, music, fishing, cooking, food, and photography. 20 year old daughter will be attending The New School in New York.. Everybody gets along fine. I'd like to find someone to be close to, to be intimate with in all ways, to love.My ideal match would be soft and supportive, but also self-assertive. I would be the same. My ideal match would be non-judgemental and accepting. I would be the same. My ideal match would be emotional and sensitive. I'm that way. My ideal match would be someone, who, if they wanted to dance, would go out dancing, and then come home and snuggle with me.
I've noticed that many, if not most, women of my age on Match put a lot of emphasis on their love of traveling. I like to travel, too, in the winter, when my work allows. I try to go on one trip a year- Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii. Often my travels are related to my work, or more specifically, my passion for visiting countries, or parts of this country, where different types of agriculture are practiced. Having said that, I'd like to also say that travel is not at the top of my agenda. That space is reserved for staying right where I am, because I don't yet know everything about this place- its environment, its people, its wildlife, its food, its agriculture, its geology, hydrology, Hope you you see what I mean. My ideal mate would share that, or at least understand and accept it in me. I hope this doesn't sound too severe or harsh, but I'm just that way.
I guess the same applies to golf, water-skiing, dancing, wine-tasting, and things like that. For me, those things are leisure activities; I'm still doing what I feel is vital work, maintaining my connection to the Earth and to my community. I suspect this work will last a lifetime. And I hope to spend that lifetime, what's left of it, with someone who will not necessarily share my work, but understand, accept, and value it in me. I'm a serious guy, and I'm looking for a serious woman to love.
Are you a glass-is-half-full person? Well, my glass is about empty. How could anyone accept the status quo? With war and genocide in Africa, global warming, a US population addicted to high fructose corn syrup and genetically modified processed food, respect for Americans overseas at an all-time low, pollution and discrimination in the US, US troops giving up their lives in what has become a ridiculous religious war about oil ...
I came of age during the '60's, and I guess I still have most of the viewpoints, attitudes, morality , and habits of that time.
Happy? Me? Of course not. I don't have what I want. Someone to love and someone who loves me. Why else would I be here?
Date someone special from United States. I like to put as much positive energy into life as I have to give,and one of my greatest pleasures is to connect with others -friends, loved ones, total strangers, babies children, nature-in a spirit of joy and humor -open to their unique stories and hopeful for laughter.I have fiery energy, a really big heart and the ability to make family and friends feel nurtured and welcome in my home. I appreciate my deeply intuitive nature and gentleness, which seem to make me an easy person to be with and trust Music of all sorts is a path to my soul..My sense of adventure has brought me great joys along with the life lessons of hurt and disappointment. The wilderness and ocean are my places of spiritual practice..I feel totally safe by myself in the "middle of nowhere." Building a fire is always a source of comfort and accomplishment.
To share that fire with a man who is self-reflective, open, happy and gentle; who I can have thoughtful and playful conversation with;; who I can trust that we have each others' backs when the chips are down; who doesn't always have to hike in front of the pack, and who is someone to create new adventures with are the reasons I'm giving this Match thing a try.
Everything in life just seems more meaningful and wonderful if it is shared. Hopefully we can build and light our fires together.
