Meet men and women from California, United States. I have never been comfortable with the idea of trying to "sell" myself. So these about me boxes, are usually torture. There is a fine line between confidence and cockyness. Well, I'm not really one thing, or I do not fit into a type. I never have, and never will. If I am one thing, it is simply complicated. Not the best two words to throw together, but contradiction is every where. I am at heart an optimist, but do hold realistic views of the world and people. I am the creative type, I am a dreamer, but my feet are stable. I have a lot of interests, and some are favored over others, but sporadic variations in my routines are what I like best. I like to do a lot of things, but never repeatedly. Its like always eating your favorite thing, after awhile, it looses it specialness. I am not a cali native. I was born in Colorado, and was adopted into an Army family, and moved around a bit. I spent a great deal of time in Maryland, Go Ravens, Go Orioles!! I love the area I live in, I can drive up to the mountains and go hiking, or down to the beach and lounge about, what ever my fancy. I am looking for a women, one who like me is not into playing games while building a relationship. Being friends is important, but so is chemistry, and not the chemistry of just finding the other attractive. There is a spark when two people meet, that is undeniable. I do have a type. She must be smiling, loves to laugh, enjoys lounging on the couch as much as being out doors. I have always been drawn to creative types. Singers, dancers, artists, writers, any one who just thinks they are creative and outside the box. I do ask that this women also takes care of herself physically. I'm not looking for a model, but I'm also not attracted to bbw. I am looking for someone who will run a 10k with me, but not expect me to run a marathon a week later. What else, I like women who have their opinions, but are open minded, but not easily persuaded, just excepting of others. Just looking for someone to live my life with, while they live theirs :)

Date men and women from United States. Here it is ladies,( the quick blurb), professional educator that is laid back and takes life in strides, who has a positive frame of mind with a sense of humor and can emotionally connect, looking for someone with similar traits and personality.
That's getting to the point, however what you don't know about me is that I am quite playful can be goofy and humorous, (I love to laugh and make others around me laugh), yet I also understand there is a time to settle down and take everything in stride. I tend not worry about yesterday, the past or the future, I live for the day, tomorrow has enough worries why fret and worry about things that can not be controlled, I love to play outside as I participate in a men's flag-football league and softball league, in addition, love to work out, hike, bike and relax outside or down at the beach. I have a 7 year old little girl who I share custody with 50/50, who is my world and I will fiercely protect and whom I am loyal to.
I also have a 11/2 year old boxer, so you must love dogs as he is my little boy and I love to take him wherever I go, within reason when I am outside.
I am looking for the down to earth, laid back girl/woman who is not a drama queen, someone who is active and loves to be outside and on the go, don't get me wrong I also like to sit back, relax and cuddle when the time calls for it. I am looking for someone who loves to laugh at life and take it all in stride. Someone who I can call my best friend, partner, share life's ups and down with. Is that you?
Meet a soulmate from Ojai, United States. If I could accurately describe my ideal match, perhaps I would not be here. I guess what I have learned in life is that you sometimes find love where you least expect. So it's best not to have preconceived notions of perfection. Especially when it comes to people, sometimes what you think you want is not what you really need. Having lived as many years in Asia as I have lived in the US, I have recently relocated to California (where I am from originally). I am not looking for lots of dates--I don't have the time! But I am looking for a social life to begin with, and someone to enjoy life with for the long term if possible. Oh, and please note that I am a fully capable single dad, which means I am not looking for a step-mom to take over parenting duties. I am looking for someone who will nurture my soul and for whom I can do the same. Having said that, I do have a child, so my match would have to understand that and appreciate him--he's actually quite a charmer. Hope to hear from you.

Meet people from United States. I'm into working out, hiking, camping, fishing, playing softball, most outdoor stuff. Would like someone with similar interests. I have a very technical job, and am very good at it. I enjoy my work, but would rather be hiking in the mountains or paddling on my kayak. I love to cook and actually worked as a cook years ago, cooking everything from from shrimp, lobster, prime rib, to lasagna. I consider myself fairly levelheaded, very positive and always trying to improve myself. I have 3 beautiful children and love spending time with them.
Date single man from United States. After many years of soul searching, I am excited to meet someone and explore the many aspects of genuinely intimate relationship. You are well enough established in your 'self', emotionally sound and available, clear and complete with your past relationships. And you are ready and more than willing to spend time getting to know a partner.
Creative, clever and complex: thatвЂ™s me. IвЂ™m incessantly inspired. I am healthy and fit. My headвЂ™s in good condition too: IвЂ™m bright, insightful and articulate. I know my way around philosophy and science, psychotherapy and meditation. I gravitate towards truth, however it is found. Not content with appearances or assumptions, I prefer looking under the surface. Decidedly unconventional, IвЂ™ve devoted my life to learning and listening. Yet, though eager for knowledge, I recognize that real understanding lies beyond the mind. Only silence reveals all. So I try to balance quiet times with the excitement of everything else! I'm a strange hybrid of seeker and scientist, an eclectic explorer of human potential.
I long for a partner who would share an adventure in learning with me, someone courageous and curious, open and honest, who wants to travel beyond her horizons. Someone who possesses both insight and intellect, patience and passion. Someone who enjoys deep dialogue but relishes sweet silence. Together, in love, we might dive beneath the sparkling shallows of our selves.
Com'on, surprise me!
Now I'll fill you in on my dark side :-) I can be perceived as annoyingly happy first thing in the morning. Im told I'm Introspective, creative, empathic, consistent, caring, happy and responsible. Have traveled the world, read a lot of books and still do, love children, Spring time, Winter,fall. Passionate about being alive. Love helping disadvantaged people..
I desire to share the daily intimacies that one can only build through time, shared experiences and trust. I am serious about creating a long term relationship. I prefer transparency and humility over subtext and pride.
Meet a soulmate from United States. Presently, someone who would appeal to me has lived life thoroughly and understands what she does and does not like; and frankly, knows she is not willing to settle for either a person or a relationship that does not bring peace.
During Winter Break, while sipping a mug of freshly pressed coffee and watching the rising sun paint the waves a morning blush of crimson-orange, I thanked the opportunity to have had that moment. And so, I approached that day as I have for some time now- with honest gratitude toward opportunities- to surf alone and with friends, to cycle on silent back roads, and turn pedals on backcountry singletrack, all the while aware of the beauty that compels me to return each time again to these places.
With a separation after nineteen years and a divorce pending, the ocean, the hills and the silent roads have once again proven themselves as places for solitude and companionship and deep contemplation
Having cycle-toured around the world and across this country, having surfed in both hemispheres, and backpacked through Asia and South Pacific Islands, these events have shaped my world view and how I see the importance of life and living. All cliches aside, Henry David Thoreau wrote this in his journal:
"The moods and thoughts of man are revolving just as steadily and incessantly as natureвЂ™s. Nothing must be postponed. Take time by the forelock. Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this, or the like of this."
As I arise in the morning and ride to work in the dark, Henry David Thoreau's thoughts resonate with me. When I sit outside the surf zone awaiting the approach of another set of waves, the ideas implicit in Thoreau's journals clarify what too often seem a hectic and amplified world
I hope to meet a woman with a passion for adventure, a desire to travel and experience what Yvonne Chouinard once said: "the adventure starts when something goes wrong". I would like to meet someone who appreciates the pursuit of living a simple yet utterly fulfilling life found in discovery and challenge and the peace that follows from these kinds of endeavors.
