Date people from California, United States. I am an easy going hard working guy with a positive outlook on life. I am originally from Holland but have lived here for the last 26 years or so. I grew up in the flower bulb trade and thatвЂ™s what brought me to California. What was ones a romantic and wonderful business to be in has become another corporate monster and therefore five years ago I decided to make a career change. I quit and started my own little home improvement service. Together with my son we go to work each day and when itвЂ™s all done our customers are happy. Doing more than what you promise and show up on time are two factors in making it all work and thatвЂ™s what I expect from people around me. Something kind of hard to find here in California
Currently I am looking into buying a sail boat. Growing up in Holland thatвЂ™s what I used to do and now that the kids are grown sailing is one of the things on my bucket list.
Besides hiking my roots always go back to growing stuff so I love to come home and puddle around my garden. Or I just take my bicycle around town and on my way home I grab a beer at my favorite waterhole down the street.
First date? No pressure- a simple dinner or lunch. Attraction is immediate or not, so the date can have a life of its own and continue or we can shake hands and call it a day after the first hour. I'm not big on month long e-mailing to get to know someone- I prefer face to face contact. Words and nuances can be misconstrued so I believe seeing and hearing a person is the most important step to getting to know them.
Meet a man from California, United States. I just moved from Solvang to Morrow Bay for work and starting a new phase in my life.
I consider myself to be a true Renaissance Man. Well educated, with a doctorate in law, but can still repair or build just about anything. I am a gentleman who enjoys the outdoors, be it sailing, camping, cycling, kayaking, or driving along the coast. I am looking for someone who would like share the wonders of the natural world with me. I am a get it done type of person. Be careful what you ask for when your around me. You probably will get it. I am looking for someone who is emotionally available and real.
I am romantic and level headed. Ok there is a wild side but itвЂ™s reserved for play time. I live a healthy lifestyle, not vegan, but I try to eat organic. Currently on the cave man diet. I enjoy cooking. I use locally grown minimally processed foods. I try to live as green as possible without going overboard.
As far as drinking, I said never but I do sip some wine once in a great while. I know many local vintners, so the occasional taste test is obligatory.
I have 2 young children who now live with my ex most of the time. My ex and I are on good terms and share custody.
If you are real, available, and balanced, drop me a line. PS: NO Photo, no response. You can see me, it's only fair that I get to see you.
PPS: I am no longer a paid member.
Date a soulmate from California, United States. first and foremost what i am looking for is someone with a good sense of humor, i am pretty much into just hanging out and getting to know someone. i am a bit of a homebody but i also do have a sense of adventure and love to explore out of the way spots especially if a good hike is involved but i am totally good with being lazy and sitting on a beach with a good book. i do like going to the movies, i pretty much like all types of film from foreign to action as long as it is well done.
i come from a big family and we all like to hang and i love being with them. we talk a lot and fortunately for me most of them live in the area. my children(2) are grown but in and out of the house depending on school schedules, etc.
i would say i am a great friend to have and i cherish all of my friendships very much and i know they would say the same.
i am a pretty optimistic person, good energy, young in spirit and heart and my outlook on life is positive. i like to always see the good in people. being responsible for yourself is big in my book, trust, no drama, upfront and direct. i can't stand b.s., it drives me nuts.
i love a good meal, don't cook much anymore though now the kids are gone. i am not a big drinker but i do enjoy a cold beer or a nice glass of wine when the occasion calls for it.
this is all pretty new to me, but if you are interested in friendship first and taking things slow that would be ideal.
Meet a woman from California, United States. I just moved to Morro Bay to work for an amazing company in San Luis Obispo. I am in love with the beautiful hills, rocks and fresh ocean air. I am an active, fit and happy woman who tries to see the best in others. I have a great job but am not defined by it and after loosing my spouse realize that everyday needs to be celebrated. I would love to find someone who has great ethics and character. Who is simple and understands love and what really makes a person happy. Someone who has worked hard to raised great children, knows how to give and receive and who is ready to not "grow old" but live life to it's fullest.
Date men and women from California, United States. Seeking activity partner, friend first, hoping to find that special chemistry, "soulmate", but in the interim, looking to have fun, meet people, enjoy a laugh or two, hugs and maybe intense kisses!. Love photography, cooking, wine tasting and garage sales. I tend towards being a workaholic so still need help with that...
Meet someone special from United States. Sometimes I feel like I look at the world through a lens, thrilled to see a photo present itself, othertimes the world blurs, moving at light speed with no concept of time. No, it's not drugs, but life is hectic and overwhelming at times. I value stopping to smell the roses, slowing it down and spending time with family and friends. I would like to find someone with a shared connection. Enjoy time spent cooking a meal...then talking and sharing it together with a nice glass of wine. Taking a drive in good weather with the top down, looking to see where the road takes us, maybe finding a new winery to visit, an antique store down a backroad, or finding the perfect shot to shoot a photo (like Whalebone Resevoir). I am thrilled by intelligence as long as it comes with common sense. You've left the baggage several trips ago. You take pride in your appearance, your home and your livelihood. You must be a great kisser and a sensual, passionate man, compassionate and curious. Would love to start with a companion or a friend - there are so many great opportunities in this area - wine tasting, going to yard sales or even the hunting for the great photo together.
