Date men and women from La Crescenta, United States. It's not that I have high standards, or am searching for the "One", but I definitely know what I want. And apparently that narrows the field quite a bit.
I'm looking for someone who is smart and sexy, who is a good listener and can talk about her own deep-seated ideas, who can enjoy the simple pleasures and live life "in the moment", who is fearless and always willing to learn, and who is loyal and never gives up on what she believes in.
She would be my princess, "that not impossible She who rules my heart and me." For her I would do anything.
It's rather simple to me. A partnership should be based on mutual cooperation, whether it be a friendship or a relationship. Both partners should find enjoyment, and the overall association should result in greater benefit than being alone. Because, if it doesn't add up that way, then what's the point?
Of course, attraction and love and such things are important, but I've learned that they are not everything. It only works if both partners are of like mind, and are dedicated to making it work. And when you do find such a harmony, it becomes effortless like "partners-in-crime" joyfully playing the game of life. That's the ideal that I hope for. And if you understand that then you understand me.
The rest is part of the adventure....
Meet someone special from California, United States. I am an open-minded person who is willing to do just about anything once. I enjoy mostly all music; from rap to classical, just depends what mood I'm in. I love to laugh and enjoy spending time with friends and family. For fun I go out with my friends, play pool, shooting, enjoy playing sports or anything that sounds fun at the time. When it comes to going out, I try to plan things out, but sometimes I like to be spontaneous, which can also be fun. It just depends on the person or people I am with. Overall, I am an easygoing person looking for a girl to share a good time with. I did my time in the Marines and have respect for all those who serve our country. Graduated from CSUN and looking to get my life started. I am looking for a person who enjoys life and is happy with who they are. A girl who has goals and wants to succeed. Somebody who isn't afraid of not being perfect and happy that she is not. Someone who enjoys going out, but also enjoys wearing sweats and spending time together at home watching a movie.
Date a soulmate from La Crescenta, United States. Hi there. Save the three years I spent in graduate school in the flat and frozen fields of Illinois, I have spent my life in California. I love living in Los Angeles. From hiking and skiing in the mountains to walking barefoot through the sand at the beach, there are so many places to explore. I always try to make it up to Mammoth for a couple days in the winter (except this year-the lack of snow and my recovery from a broken ankle kept me off the slopes).
As far as my career, I have just taken a job as an assistant cross-country and track coach at at Division 1 college (before that, I was an English teacher and a coach at a high school). I ran in college, and coaching is my passion. To watch the kids grow and improve over their four years is such a pleasure. I am very excited about this move.
Traveling has been a big part of my life. I have walked the warped boards of ShakespeareвЂ™s house, spent the night in a Swiss Alp Hut, driven the wrong way on a narrow French street only to find a wonderful restaurant. My recent travels have been more domestic, but I am always looking for the next spot. I love to camp-for the past four years I have taken 40 members of my cross-country team for a week long running camp in Mammoth Lakes. No condos for them; we tent camp. I have found that the best place are those found when you are lost looking for some other place.
What else? I sing in the car (not well), can't spend enough time with my 13 month niece Ella (I'm biased, but she really is the best baby), and I am kind of a nerd when it comes to reading (I get real excited every year when the La Times Book festival comes around).
As far as what I am looking for, let's start with someone who is athletic, enjoys good conversation over a great meal, is positive about the ups and downs of life, and loves to laugh (I know, doesn't really narrow it down). So much comes down to that face to face chemistry. Best of luck with this. Can't wait to hear from you.
Meet single man from United States. I don't like this part because it can come off as bragging. So I'll just regurgitate what my friends who know me say about me: that I am extremely funny and that I should be a comedian, that I'm really smart, that I make them feel safe, that I should model for Asian underwear (because for some reason those are different than Caucasians'?), etc. etc. blah blah blah. I hate this part because it kind of makes you come off as egotistic (barf).
More importantly, I'm constantly curious about life and I love to make others (myself too) laugh so that they are happier and can enjoy life just that much more. I have a comedic personality (but I'm not an immature goofball). I love deep discussions about life, art, movies, businesses ANYTHING. More recently, I've had a lot of affinity for art and helping able artists become more able. I work on quite a few artistic projects ranging from film production (as the executive producer, I also do VFX for our web series and soon, a feature length sci-fi space warfare film), to teaching martial arts, to assistant-managing an art gallery, etc. Oh yeah and a couple of mysteries: I also secretly work for the number 1 dub step artist in the world (and recent Grammy winner hint hint nudge knee-to-the-groin), a long time friend - doing legal and accounting stuff... 2ndly... I used to be a major NERD. I've come out of it now, but I still retain some old habits (don't worry I won't ditch our date for a DD game).
I guess that brings me here to this site. I'm looking for someone special to spend time with. Someone that I can really get along with and have fun with. I've met so many married couples that have been together for decades and I always ask them what their secret is. Almost all of them say they married their best friend. This won't work for me because my bff is a dude, but I agree that I want to be with someone that enjoys the same things I do and can hold a conversation. Cheezy as it is, I couldn't agree more with Jason Mraz's duet song, "Lucky." I think there is a lot of truth to falling in love with a best friend. I need to be with someone that can be just as spontaneous as me. Someone who doesn't mind dancing in the middle of the road in the rain just because it's funny at the time; someone that has got "it" when it comes to socializing and having a good time. Do you have "IT?" If not it's ok - it was way over-rated since Stephen King wrote it and that clown was freakin' creepy...
Date single man from California, United States. I'm not a salesman by nature. So, this intro will be just ~super awesome~ (sarcasm!). I'm easy going with a sense of humor that ranges from dorky to dirty. I enjoy nights in just as much as a night out on the town.
I'm a geek and would meet someone to share my geek life for the long term. I'm looking for someone I can share my life, hobbies, and passions with. Someone that would be as comfortable taking a cruise up PCH (or through the mountains) with me as they would be staying home and cooking dinner together...
I do like cooking, especially if there's a fire involved. However, I'm just as comfortable with a stove and oven as I am with a charcoal grill and smoker. There's nothing better than learning to cook a new dish and having it turn out better than expected. One of my recent successes was teaching myself to make risotto.
Did I mention I like driving? Probably, but just in case you missed it, I like driving. I like driving so much that I just finished a 1 month "road-trip" vacation (June 2012), in which I drove from Los Angeles to Tampa Bay FL and back. 2 weeks of this vacation will be spent visiting family, but the remainder will be driving across the US. On the route back I stopped at many National Parks and Monuments in Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Arizona. There's a lot of really cool historical stuff both natural and man made in those states.
Also, I use to smoke. I quit smoking in June 2011. So, it's now been 1 year since I last had a cigarette. So, while my profile says "no way" in regards to smoking, I do not think it is a fair assessment towards my view on smoking. I'm to the point that I can be around smokers and it not bother me nor does it cause me to crave the nicotine.
Since I quit smoking, I gained a fair amount of weight. I've been working to loose that weight since the start of this year. So far, I've dropped 25 of the extra pounds, and have another 15 to loose to get back to the weight I was in my pictures with the black shirt. In the Christmas party photo, I was at my heaviest.
Meet single man from La Crescenta, United States. So about me, I guess you could say I am a geek of sorts. IвЂ™m intelligent, can talk all night about philosophy. I drink up good conversation like an alcoholic. I love and write scifi and go weak in the knees over boobs.
As for the ungeek side I am very good with my hands. I am a badass guerilla cook (my word) and I can build or fix just about anything. ThatвЂ™s who I am but thatвЂ™s just words, thatвЂ™s just superficial isnвЂ™t it. It tells you something but what really? Like why am I here? Who was this idiot anyway?
I am here because I still believe that you are out there and you know who you are. Been waiting for you, where the hell you been? You are the yin to my yang, sugar to my kool-aid, sauce to my sundae, light to my star. I can wake up with and I can fall to sleep too. You are my body pillow that fits me like a spoon. I can whisper to, listen to, live and to learn. You are my everything that i can be everything to.
Corny? Oh who cares, if you donвЂ™t like it then it wasnвЂ™t for you.
By the way I a writer, hey everyone can't be James Bond but boy I wish... I am eclectic unique. I am adventurous, but am not Indiana Jones. I am funny but I am not a standup comedian. I donвЂ™t like watching sports much.I do bikram yoga, weight lifting, walking and hiking and am getting into rock climbing.
I am a writer with an artistвЂ™s soul so museums and such do me very well. I can comfortably blend into most social situations with no problem, acclimate and get friendly quickly. By the way quick add to the geek part I love DisneylandвЂ¦
I find that some of the greatest things in life come from places that are odd and unexpected. If the opportunity comes to turn left instead of right or take the road less traveled I will probably do it because you never know who or what you might find.
I am a natural story teller and a person that enjoys the adventure that life has to offer every day. I believe we can create anything we want, which makes it wondrous. I am looking for someone to share it all with. Someone to grow with, someone who really gets me and who I can get.
Date people from United States. I am looking for a lover /friend not looking to rush into anything lets meet and see if we have a spark and take it from there. I'm easy going ,with a good sense of humor,my match should be pretty close to same.I'm the quiet type I'm not big on small talk although I do my best.I'm a good listener. sometimes I like being spontaneous. Making plans are ok too.
Meet someone special from United States. First and foremost: I'm looking for someone to have fun with. Someone to share adventures. I'm fun, creative, intelligent and talented and I have always enjoyed having a special someone in my life towards whom I can turn my energies hopefully to impress, amaze...who knows?
About me: 53 years old, divorced after one marriage which lasted 18 years. 2 kids, ages 22 and 20, who live primarily with their mom. They're great kids and carry no particular baggage. I myself am not a "baggage handler" and I get along well with my ex. I'm moving forward into my future and I hope I can share it with someone special.
I'm successful, having owned my own law firm for the last 21 years and having done well with it. I graduated from Princeton and U. C. Davis Law School.
I am a gentleman and I will treat you with respect. Period. No further explanation needed.
I have a lot of friends and usually have absolutely no shortage of creative and fun things to do. I really don't like the dating selections because there's never a line for, "I really like trying new things, just about anything, particularly if a woman I like wants to do it."
Most of my friends would tell you that I'm funny, compassionate, good at conversation and listening, energetic, etc. You've heard all that before. The unique thing I can offer is, I'm very, very, very good at letting YOU be YOU. I don't try to change anyone. Whoever you are, you can relax being you. That's a promise.
Physically, most women I know consider that I'm handsome. I'm in good shape and I have a nice body. In terms of women I like from a physical perspective, I mostly am attracted to women who know what to do with what they have. I've been attracted to many different types of women, so there's no exact pattern of what I'm "holding out for". Generally I prefer women who are at least reasonably in shape, but you don't have to be an aerobics instructor to apply. I'm physically active and, if we're together, I'd like to feel like we each could keep up with the other.
In terms of what I like romantically or sexually, my experience has been that if I'm attracted to a person and she's attracted to me, the rest tends to take care of itself. In terms of a relationship, I am looking for a teammate and a friend as well as a lover
That's it for now, I suppose. Email me if you have more questions.
Date people from United States. I enjoy the simple things in life; a smile, laughter, a nice glass of wine, the back of a woman's neck. I am mainly an introvert who is looking for some excitement in my life. Some say that I am a little quirky and have a great sense of humor. I have an eye for art, an ear for music, a brain for finance, and a body for... well I tell you later. A few words to describe me are; thoughtful, distinctive, kind hearted, passionate, and genuine. I am seeking someone who is kind and young at heart. Qualities like smarts, being affectionate, and making my heart race, are important to me. Being a nature and/or animal lover is a plus.
Losing someone so close to my heart showed me how precious life is. I want to spend the rest of my time enjoying it with someone and feeling fulfilled. I am so proud of my daughter, the Artist, who is in college. I am not signed up yet.
Meet someone special from California, United States. Let's just meet and have fun. Enjoy the day/night with good conversation, share stories, laugh.....whatever comes along. Can a first date be that easy? Of course it can.
I'm a simple man that enjoys a simple quiet life. I like movies, hiking, sports (watching some playing others), theater, family events, my job, dinners out or cooking together at home. Yes I can cook, not a gourmet but I've never starved either.
There is so much more to tell about myself, take a chance let's see what happens.
Date a man from La Crescenta, United States. I would love to find someone with whom I could travel with and be with. My kids are 23,17 and 13. No one is more important to me then them. The 13 yr. old I have about half a week, but this is very flexible. I also like doing nothing more then watching sports or movies. As a musician, I have played on numerous records and movies/TV shows. The most notable record for me was Ray Charles' "Genius loves Company"and "Up" . I just finished doing "Desperate House Wives" which had a 8 yr run which was very special and"Lost". I guess I should say I play the cello(for 47 yrs). My favorite TV shows are "Person of Interest", Bill Maher and Bill Moyers and any playoff games (especially game sevens- the drama and the contesting of wills and style always intrigue me). I'm looking for an independent lady who has a good deal of freedom and free time. I am very passionate and intense about some things- politics,social injustices,animal cruelties to name a few, but I've spent too much time being angry about these things and not enjoying life. Not to say I'm no longer passionate about these things but I don't let them control me. I want to say how grateful I am for my health,kids,house and dog. My gift from God has been a blessing and a curse in LA but I wouldn't change anything. I hope I can find someone to do new things with. It's time to live life. I'm open to learning how to dance, yoga or basically anything. It would be great to find love again but I also look forward to simply going out and doing new things.
Meet single man from United States. I am very lucky to have a wonderful life. I am looking for someone special to share it with. I, like most people find it difficult to write about myself. So I will quote the personality profile from Match.com. "Who You Are: You're a man who celebrates life. You're a man with a very balanced personality and lifestyle. You believe in making room in life to relax, think, and have fun. You refuse to settle long-term for a boring job or doing something just because it's expected of you. Love is the same way. You know what real love feels like and you'll accept no imitations! You're honest, straightforward, and have lots of common sense. Because you don't "wear your heart on your sleeve" doesn't mean you lack deep feelings. In fact, you're deeply committed to your loved ones and the causes you believe in. Men as truly balanced as you are very rare." . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Who am I? I am far more than can be described in 2000 characters. I am far less than some people need or want. I am happy. I am successful. I enjoy life. I enjoy people. I enjoy conversation. I enjoy listening. I am active. I lead an interesting life. Here is a list of some of the words that I feel apply to me. Active, Athletic, Artistic, Adventurous, Bright, Balanced, Bicyclist, Creative, Careful, Constructive, Competent, Devoted, Diligent, Determined, Dragon, Different, Exciting, Eager, Empathetic Eccentric, Flyer, Funny, Frugal, Gracious, Giving, Helpful, Hopeful, Happy, Honest, Intelligent, Interested, Inquisitive, Joyful, Kind, Knowledgeable, Kinky, Loving, Listener, Massager, Machinist, Naughty, Nice, Nature, Open, Pilot, Photographer, Positive, Passionate, Patriot, Quick, Quiet, Real, Responsible, Reliable, Skier, Sailor, Scuba, Smile, Smart, Shy, Spontaneous, Triboligist, Thinker, Traveler, Thoughtful, Tennis, Underwater, Unusual, Varied, Vivacious, Worker, Wild, Worldly, Worthy, Woodworker, XIII, Xenolith, xy, Young, Yachtsman, Zestful.Who do I want? To make a list of requirements is folly at best. The person I am looking for is a sum of her parts. She is the result of choices, nature, and chance. There are no single capabilities or conditions that would make her perfect. There are no single capabilities or conditions that would make her unacceptable. Things that I find desirable include: I enjoy someone who is active. It would be nice if she enjoyed or was willing to learn one or more of the activities I currently enjoy; skiing, tennis, flying, bicycling, sailing, scuba diving, hiking. It would be nice if she would like to teach me one or more of her activities. It would be nice if she enjoyed family. If she has kids they should be her priority. Empathy is a great asset! Passion is a great asset! Smart is a great asset. A sparkle in the eye is superb! High energy is highly desirable! I would like someone who is happy leading, following, and especially walking side by side. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . I am looking forвЂ¦ Someone to enjoy life with. Someone to respect. Someone who respects me. Someone to hold and love. Someone who will hold and love me. Someone who will share my life. Someone who will allow me to share her life. Someone to sit in the dark and watch the shooting stars with. (or not watch as the case may be) Someone to share the beauty of flying over the city with all its lights. Someone to travel with. Someone to stay home with. Someone to have meaningful conversations with. Someone I can make happy. Someone who makes me happy. And so much more.
