Date people from United States. self confident, comfortable and able to enjoy life.
Did the deed, worked hard at the process and ready to enjoy the next stage in my life.
Are you stable, accomplished and have a positive outlook on life?
Meet people from Portola Valley, United States. People that know me know me as a clean-cut, do-the-right-thing, nice guy with a wry sense of humor, looking to complement a smart, pretty and independent lady.
Life has lots to offer but I know the pleasure of pursuing and experiencing those things with someone close is that much more fulfilling and available.
My life experiences range from the U.S. Marines, to being a regular on national TV, to helping during the SF Earthquake, to travel to Barbados, Santorini, and of course, Paris.
Someone who has made herself a standalone woman, who now wants someone to value the rest of her, and perhaps engage her in new and fun views, is what I hope to bring to this special lady's life.
Date a soulmate from Portola Valley, United States. Hello. I'm a naturally happy & optimistic soul; always good natured. Love to make breakfast! Love the Stanford area. Everything is new to me; been hiking & biking to learn the area. Love the weather! Spent the last 25 years in FL & think SF is heaven!
I donвЂ™t smoke, except when I get really, really hot.
I donвЂ™t drink; except for the occasional jug of wine with the occasional pizza or lasagna. The occasions might occur daily. And yes; daily is an occasion.
I was born English, Irish, German and American Indian (Cherokee). That's quit a mix isn't it?
But am now Agnostic. I know it doesn't make sense, but then again, neither do I. Agnostic is greek, and means without knowledge. Do you see how nicely this all fits together?
My confused ethnicity could explain my constant state of confusion; but it refuses to. You could talk to my shrink; but she's a fictional creation too.
I'm not into drugs (couldn't fit); nor do I use them.
I like folk songs e.g., Simon & Garfunkel, Diamond, Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary. Anything with slow lyrics; gives me half a chance to understand what's being said.
I like movies & books with a good positive theme, e.g., Mouse Hunt, The Notebook, The Abyss, Cider House Rules, Alien, The Thing and Sweet Home Alabama. I'm a big baby at movies; I cry at the mushy stuff and scream at the scary stuff. I do! It's embarrassing!
It even embarrasses me!
I think this country has become a police state; one in which everyone but the judges and police should be afraid.
I think offensive acts of war are just that, offensive acts of war; and IвЂ™m against them.
I think corporations control our state and federal legislators. I believe the only way to regain control of our legislative process is through state & federal constitutional amendments limiting all political bribes donations to voters.
I like happy, good natured, living human people. Who have both a sense of humor and humility. Though this does not mean I reject those that are unhappy, bad natured, dead and or alien (of either humanistic or animalistic persuasion).
I give all comers equal opportunity based upon both merit and my particularly twisted and bent persuasions and needs of the moment.
I like people who are curious by nature, and those who are curious un-naturally too (remember the bent and twisted above).
I like people who are slow to criticize or speak in anger. This gives me sufficient time to either make up some appropriate reply and or excuse; or to run.
I like to walk, bike, explore, canoe and sail; anything dealing with the outdoors. This is especially true when on TV.
I love nature; remember the bent & twisted above.
I want to build a cabin, and a canoe and boat. This is for real, as opposed to the rest of my world, which is make believe.
Regarding the cabin; I mean the whole thing. I want to:
-- cut the timber,
-- saw the timber into lumber,
-- construct a complete house from wood. Complete meaning:
-- solid wood exterior walls,
-- floor joists & ceiling rafters,
-- flooring, etc.
For real. Honest!
I've traveled to Peru to trek Cordillera Blanca & Huayhuash. Average altitude approximately 15,000 feet with high altitude of approximately 20,000 feet. The most rugged and beautiful mountains in the world.
I've traveled to Nepal 4 times, to climb Annapurna Himalaya (twice), Makalu Himalaya, and Manaslu Himalaya. Wonderful country and people.
I've traveled to Africa and summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro, both Gilman's Point and Uhurro Peak. Also explored Rift Valley near the volcano Mt. Olyidonya. Wonderful experience, country and people. The Tanzanians I met had the best sense of humor in the world.
I like to camp out.
I love to make breakfast.
I like sleeping under the trees and stars; it's really magical.
I love to bike; but do so slowly.
In fact, I do everything slowly; but I really enjoy it!
If you're still with me after all this, I need a job! I'm a accountant with 30 years exp. in tax & accounting.
Meet a soulmate from California, United States. Let's see... Cram 60 years into 2000 characters. That should be easy. Hamlet, Robin Hood, Forrest Gump - Let me get back to you on the other 1997. Originally much smaller. Grew. I like being outdoors. I like some tv(comedy and PBS). I love humor. I like camping: I love tennis. Love snow skiing. I taught English and theater for six years: I like musicals and plays. I love smart: I love athletic. I don't like passive-aggressive. I want a partner to plan with. I want someone to love. Fine food and funny company in a nice setting sounds perfect. I have a nice smile. I'm ambitious, too. And lazy sometimes. And, after reading a few dozen intros, I should add that I love the opera - Do all of you really go to the opera that much??? I do like the music, but I don't really go that often. I'd have to dust off my suit. I would like someone who is taking care of herself physically and emotionally. Thinking there is someone out there who will make you whole is a mistake. You need to be reasonably whole before you get there. You don't need to be perfect. You have a good sense of humor, and like to be physically active and have an active social life. Nice, pretty, trim, forgiving, gracious, kind, thoughtful, happy, living in the present, affectionate. Picture to follow. I am fairly handsome, too. Really, my Mom wouldn't lie! I like a woman who doesn't spend an hour a day with make up.
Date men and women from United States. Here's a general description of me, and what I look for in a partner, using at least 200 characters so I can get into this thing; I am beautiful, intelligent, educated,funny (can make fun of myself too), talented, athletic, love to travel, ski, ride horses, appreciate and want to play golf, open minded to new situations, can go out and fit in pretty much anywhere, and can be just as happy staying home reading books, and watching movies, and blah, blah, bladetty, blah, blah, etc. Sounds great, right? Specs; 5'5 , 115 pds, brunette and blonde, green eyes.
You; good looking, intelligent, FUNNY, must love animals... I'll cut to the chase here. A male version of me, but taller. Pretty shallow stuff here, right? Too bad. If you don't like it, don't read this. If you do, yeyyy!
P.S. If this made you laugh, or feel cocky, then we will probably get along.
Meet a woman from California, United States. Hello - Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and if after reading it you would like to know more about me please send me a little note (not just a wink or interest). I am...a happy, healthy divorcee of 18 years, with a wonderful 21 year old son. He is my total joy, and is now on his own journey living in Oregon allowing me for endless free time. I'm enjoying my empty nest however I do miss him.
My friends would describe me as fun loving and caring, yet one who can be complicated to understand at times(at least I'm not boring). I would describe myself as someone who is easy to know, responsible, caring and ready to meet my new best friend. Family and friends are extremely important to me.
I love to travel when time permits and you will often find me planning the next adventure. Care to join me? I just returned from a week in Alaska visiting friends, fishing, grizzly viewing and enjoying the beauty. I hope my next trip will not be traveling solo :-)
I am looking for a caring, kind and gentle man who is not afraid to work hard or take some time off to play hard. If you have children that would be great and if not please know that my son no longer 'needs' me but I am still very involved in his life. It is time for me to have fun :-)
Be open to the thought of a relationship with someone who can take care of herself, but does not care to go through life alone. I am looking for that special person -- one who is emotionally finished with past relationships and truly does have the time and desire to cultivate a new friendship and perhaps more. Please have minimal baggage (I have mine down to a small carry-on :)..) and be looking for a new best friend and a partner in all that life has to offer. A friendly smile is a plus and a good sense of humor is a wonderful bonus!
Please do not send a wink as I find them impersonal and it only puts the ball in my court. Rather it would be nice to receive a few words telling me why you choose to contact me! Again, thanks for reading this and have a beautiful day!
Date someone special from United States. I love to be physically active but not interested in scaling mountains or competing in triathlons. Passionate about commitment, trust and love. Take care of myself but don't strive to be flawless. Self-confident, self-sufficient and a bit obstreperous and upbeat about life. I think being able to laugh at yourself is really important. I can enjoy being around all types of people, except those who take themselves too seriously. I try to surround myself with friends who love to laugh and kick up their heels. My feeling is people who win the game of life die with the most friends. My family and friends are very important to me and I would expect the next special person in my life to share this connection. Family comes first and friends are a close second ... and this probably describes me best and the guy who would be the perfect match in my life. (Golf should be in there somewhere, hmmm.)
I would love to meet someone who: likes to try new things ... with a strong intellect ... who gets excited with spur of the moment ... good conversationalist, good looking, physically active ... outgoing but appreciates a regular dose of quiet and relaxation ... carves out time for himself ... romantic and a sensual side ... someone who makes me laugh and keeps me smiling about life.
Meet someone special from United States. I am still working and putting on the finishing touches to my last child as a senior in high school. I am kind and laugh easily. There is no way to raise a teenager today and not have a sense of humor.
I am a freelance project coordinator and designer and probably will always work some. I like creating
and being part of new projects. I can always find something interesting to see and enjoy whether visiting new or routine local places,
I am looking for someone who likes life and wants company. Always ready for outdoor fun. Can play most sports or just watch them.
Family and friends are important to me and casual dinners, and getting together are things that I make time for.
Date men and women from California, United States. I love being with people, but also enjoy being alone with someone. Cooking is something I enjoy doing for my friends and family. I'm new in the dating game. I would love the comfort and luxury of being with someone comfortable, caring and trustworthy. Honesty, loyalty and willingness to grow in a relationship are my strong points. I like the word "Gentle Man" - that says it all.
I have been working out the last 6 1/2 years to keep this body in great shape. Would love to find a work-out partner. I am very fortunate to be healthy in body and mind.
Having a wonderful picnic at the beach, park, or wherever is a real turn on.
Dancing cheek to cheek, warms my heart. Holding hands in the movies or on an outing - or just sitting and talking about anything and everything. Getting to know someone - their likes and dislikes. What makes them happy.
I enjoy learning anything and everything, and growing with my education.
I have been told by many that I am pretty and have a nice figure. You'll have to find out for yourself. Was a model in my earlier years.
I'm very self-sufficient, but would like someone with broad shoulders for me to lean on. By the same token, I would like to be that rock for that special someone to lean on.
I'm told that I am the caretaker type - a nester for sure. Love to be of assistance to those in need. I've worked in the legal field for years as a manager and paralegal, dealing mostly in family law matters. This experience has taught me much about relationships and has also taught me a lot about being understanding and forgiving.
My personality is such that I am open to anything new or interesting to learn and/or experience. I am extremely outgoing and friendly.
Very much into my dog and any other pets I come across. Can't stand cruelty to animals or people.
I enjoy my home and taking care of it. It's nice to go away, but oh so nice to come back home.
Writing this description has been difficult inasmuch as I'm really not used to tooting my own horn. However, I have very good values and like myself for the person I have become.
I'm willing to take a chance to further broaden my horizons. It will surely be a learning experience.
I have been a widow for 5 1/2 years after many years of sharing a happy marriage. I miss the closeness of that sharing experience with another person. I am told that when one door closes another opens. I'm looking forward to that door opening.
Meet someone special from California, United States. I love to laugh and enjoy life. I appreciate the arts, music, theatre, Opera and even a good football game now and then. I am healthy, take no medications and although I am active, I am not the athlete I used to be. Tennis was my greatest love
While I have been to, and lived in many parts of the world, right now I enjoy being home and close to my grandkids. I have five grandchildren, between the ages of 5 and 17, and they all live fairly close to me. In short, family is important. Of course, during my 47 years of marriage and family life, I have cooked a lot but would prefer to have someone share that activity today.
I would like to be with a man to share activities and thoughts with. I enjoy people and am very much into cultural activities. I do not believe partners need to share all their interests, but they need to have shared values and enjoy many activities together. I have lived alone for 6 years, but am definitely not bored with my life. Although I do not think I will remarry, I would enjoy a male companion since life with only female friends does not meet all my needs. It would be nice to have a date, dress up a bit and perhaps go on a trip. I look forward to sharing warmth and potential intimacy when the chemistry is right and mutual respect is there.
I consider myself liberal and enjoy discussing politics, not in order to change a person's views but to learn why they have those views. I am flexible and realize that life is all about learning and searching---we can never know everything. I also enjoy discussing books and movies. Do not consider myself an intellectual but find myself attracted to them. Being intuitive I guess the attraction is analytical types.
These days I play at golf, tennis but do no longer plan to ski, did last year. My newest venture is to learn Chinese, not necessarily to speak but to understand some characters and how sentences are formed I was born in Shanghai and spent 13 years there, but at the time they only spoke Shanghainese.
