Date men and women from California, United States. Thank you for visiting my profile!
I posted pictures which hopefully reveal a bit about my personality, my values, the activities that I enjoy and of course, what I look like!:)
I have many passions which include just about any kind of adventure, having fun/laughing, being "successful" (which has a variety of meanings), traveling in style, the outdoors/nature surfing, diving, sailing/boating, skiing, camping/backpacking, bundling up to watch shooting stars, eating ice cream, luxuriating, and relaxing:). In my opinion, room service is one of the best inventions ever!:) I stay very active because my mind and spirit are so much brighter when I exercise and hopefully it keeps my "body sexy" too! I am fascinated by past cultures, people and creatures. I am an amateur archaeologist/paleontologist and I plan to return to UCLA at some point to get my masters degree in Archaeology and or Anthropology...As I mentioned, I am a bit of an "adventure junkie" but I also cherish вЂњquiet timeвЂќ.
Treating others with respect, being kind and emphatic is a very natural part of my personality. I was raised with somewhat "old fashioned" manners and I understand and practice chivalry. I have been told that I am sentimental and romantic, NEVER dull and that I have a great sense of humor. Writing all this stuff about how great I am is getting a little uncomfortable so I should add that I can be a complete jerk at times, especially when I am overly hungry or tired! Ok, I feel better so back to what a great guy I am: I am very generous, a good communicator/listener, I love to "connect", I DO NOT always need to be "right" and I'm a "giver". Visiting new places, learning about different cultures and learning new things is a thrill. I am very motivated/ambitious, and I have always had a very strong desire to succeed.
Being successful was and still is of the utmost importance. Life experience has taught me that "success" comes in many different forms and that it has many different meanings and measures. Being successful in business, earning money and being a good provider are extremely important to me. I have an intense career that I love, and I have worked very hard for many years to build a company of which I am very proud... I appreciate and enjoy the security and the "things" that come with financial success. On the other hand, having learned that money and "things" do not bring me happiness, at least not long-term happiness, my goal is to live a rich, full, happy and balanced life.
Some of the characteristics and traits that I find attractive include intelligence, strength, courage and honesty; someone who is straightforward, loyal, passionate, curious, adventurous, motivated, has a desire to succeed, and who willing to do what it takes to build the kind of rich, full life that I mentioned...
I would like to find a partner so that we can share this incredible journey. I have this fantasy about finding a partner who feels loved and supported by me and safe with me...I feel exactly the same way about her...We have a lot in common but we also accept and appreciate our individuality, especially because it is the acceptance of our differences that allows our relationship to grow and to remain dynamic. Over time we build a strong trust. We buoy each other up in the difficult times and we share the joy of the great times...We are a team and the glue that forms our permanent bond is love.
I am looking for a deep, honest connection with the person who will be my partner for life...
I believe that my вЂњsoul-mateвЂќ is out there somewhere, and I have faith that with time, the universe will bring us together.
Maybe you are that person? I hope so!
Meet single man from California, United States. I'm a Texas gentlemen who moved to LA to continue my work investing for teachers and policeman who need help. I love what I do. For fun, I enjoy barbecuing on my Weber grill, fine wine, sunset bike rides, dancing and intimate conversations...and there is NOTHING, I mean NOTHING better than the 72% dark chocolate at the check out line at Trader Joe's (..it's my Kryptonite!!)
I'm an outgoing and athletic person who lives by a few absolutes -- a belief in God, importance of family and friends, living a healthy lifestyle, working hard and having fun...and call me old fashioned, but I believe that a man should always open the door for a women and make her feel safe.
Traveling to places like New York and abroad a few times a year is one of my passions...and I'm passionate about volunteering to help inner city students improve the likelihood of graduation.
I'm recently out of a long term relationship and ready to move on...I'm looking to share a great lifestyle with a beautiful, warm, adventurous woman.
If something here resonated, reach out and perhaps we can grab a cup of something wonderful and enjoy some great conversation.
Date a soulmate from California, United States. It's kinda hard to really describe myself, but here it goes.....
I am a loving carring person, who is loyal, and someone a woman can count on. Call me old fashioned, but I am a strong beliver in the laws of chivalry, and all women, be it my mother, sister, or significant other, I always honor them.
If there is a chance to find the one special someone in my life, I think this is worrth it. I have found it very hard to meet really nice women who are beautiful on the inside and out. I think its time for me to try and do so. I'm deffenitly interested in a long term relationship, and God willing a family. I know it's hard for a lot of guys to admit that they enjoy affection, but it should come with the territory.
I pride myself to living life to the fullest. I try to stay in as good a shape as I can by going to the gym periodically, ridding my bike, or playing adult sports. I love to travel when the opportunity arises, and I enjoy the time I spend with good freinds and my family whom I love with all my heart. I'm a big L.A. Sports Fan(Lakers, Dodgers, Kings, etc.). I enjoy going to concerts, musical theater, music, museums, or just finding a new restaraunt and hanging out with friends and family.
I hope that special person is out there. Please, Wink or Write. Good Luck to everyone!!
Meet people from California, United States. What I know about myself:
I know I will make you laugh. A lot. And I'll need some humor from you in return.
I am at my best when I am in my element, and my element is usually hot, wet, sandy, and somewhere else.
I have a weakness for chocolate chip cookies and brownies.
I embarrass myself often, but I don't give a damn.
I can dance. It may not be pretty, but it's me.
I have been told that I am pretty good kisser.
I like situations where I have to analyze and solve something.
I have an untapped energy that few women have been able to harness.
I am fanfrickingtastic with kids, and would like a few of my own sooner rather than later.
I can be grumpy and hard to take, usually because I am tired, but it passes with food and a nap.
I know that I am in love when I find myself looking for opportunities to bring a woman more flowers.
I was fortunate to grow up in southern California and have more pairs of shorts than pants, about as politically leaning as a palm tree, and casual to the point where I have flip-flops and "dress" flip-flops. I have travelled a lot and worked abroad: West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer, Costa Rica as an Outward Bound Instructor, and South Korea teaching English. That has been my calling in life I think: to help and educate others, and I am thankful that I have been able to live that out and share my gift. However, I also enjoy travel for surf, scuba, or simply fun as well, just got back from Key West wreck diving, and New Years went to Riviera Maya Mex, went cave diving--super cool. Kauai and Idaho last summer, snorkeling, paddling, wakeboarding, and wow, already a year ago went to Nicaragua for some sweet surf. The point--I like to travel! It would be excellent to find a woman who has wanderlust as well, and a valid passport! When I am not traveling and working, I am biking, hiking, surfing, sailing, or flying, or napping. I came to LA to teach, and did so for many years, but I burnt out on it and needed a career change. I now wear a suit that utterly doesn't suit me. BUT, it really is a good career and I am really good at it. My job still falls into my life path of helping others and teaching and I make the most of it each day. However, we all have a dream job. Mine would be to either to train search and rescue dogs, or to pilot the Quiksilver Crossing Albatross seaplane and fly to remote surf spots for a living......One day. You'd come with me of course.
One night I had my palm read for the very first time by a friend, and according to her reading, I am a good and kind man, very healthy, honest, in need of faith, and I will never be poor. She was pretty spot on.
What I am looking for in a woman: laughter, intelligence, spontaneity, humor, gentleness, beauty, maturity, kindness, adventure, and someone who has something she is passionate about sharing with me. Anything. Just share it with passion.
The Chase (in case you cut to here)
All the above stuff is just fluff. What matters is what a person truly wants. And all I want is to be trusted and admired, to not be lied to, to have someone I look forward to talking with at any time of the day or night, and to hear "I love you sweetheart" and "I love you Daddy" every day for the rest of my life.
Date a man from California, United States. Love to work hard and play hard. I've been in Santa Monica for 5 years, moved here from Dallas. Enjoy being outdoors doing almost anything. Like the ocean, hiking, snowboarding, and the sun. Also love music, seeing concerts is a passion. Will go and see live music anytime, anywhere.
Love eating out and trying new places. Favorites are mexican, asian, and italian. Also, enjoy cooking and grilling myself.
Wish I had more time to watch movies, but some favorites are Crash, Wedding Crashers, and Braveheart.
Like all kinds of music from hard rock to country.
I try to live everyday for the moment, but like making plans for the future. Love to have fun events to look forward to, like the next place to visit in this amazing world.
Meet someone special from California, United States. About me: I love to travel and try to get away every few months. My favorite spot at the moment is Kauai. Been there three times this year. It's amazing. I'm professionally established and love my career. It gives me the opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life however I was raised to enjoy and appreciate the simple things as well. That being said, I am equally comfortable at a black tie affair or flip flops at the beach and would love the same in my partner. I'm a happy and positive person who doesn't engage in negativity.
Loves to travel
Sense of adventure
Enjoys exploring great new restaurants
Great sense of humor is always a bonus. :)
Leads a healthy lifestyle
Date men and women from United States. I love to travel, eat, and stay fit. I go scuba diving when I have the time, or go snowboarding when there's snow. At all other times, you can see me biking up and down the coast. I try not to drive much. Luckily, with everything and my work so close by, it has made it an easy change.
Ah, the beach, the ocean air. I think it does something to people. I see joggers, bladers, volleyballers, cyclers, boot camps. It makes me itchin to join.
I try to eat healthy and prefer seafood. I'm not a foodie, but I try to check restaurants that people rave about. The cool thing is there are so many great places between here on Montana all the way to Venice's Abbott Kinney. It's very convenient.
Well, you probably guessed who I'm looking for. I want an uptight, stay at home housewife who feeds me fatty, fat foods. No way! I want someone full of life. Loves the sun, beach, and ocean. Is active. Eats right. Don't mind my parent's super smart little Yorkie when visiting. And is full of laughs!
Meet single man from United States. I am looking for new friends or better yet someone with to have a long term, committed relationship.
I like being active/ outdoors, the beach, travelling, sports, music, live events, being out on the town/dining out as well as staying in and relaxing. . I am career and family oriented and like my time away from work. I believe the best things in life are free....well most of them at least.
Travel to Shanghai and southeast Asia often for work.
вЂњThe only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!вЂќ Jack Kerouac quote.
Date a soulmate from United States. You know what to do!
It's about seizing the day and joy or life.
"A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness."
Oh, If I was as smart as John Keats (quote above)
Meet people from United States. I love to laugh and appreciate people that look for humor in life. I try to surround myself with people that are fun, funny, interesting, intelligent, inspiring, driven and successful. I'm well put together and feel fortunate to have a great family and friends, experience from traveling and a broad professional background with a successful career that affords a lifestyle that I appreciate every day.
Chemistry is obviously important and IвЂ™m also looking for someone that is fun, funny (or at least laughs at my nonsense), independent, smart, professional, sweet, healthy/fit, well traveled, positive, confident and has a sense of style.
I have a balanced lifestyle that includes career, family, friends, exercise, travel, playing sports (basketball, football, golf, tennis), great food/wine, music, going to the beach, being creative, relaxing, etc. I donвЂ™t really go to extremes on any one thing and like to stay even keel as long as I'm moving forward.
Date a man from United States. ***Please: NO WINKS!***
I'm a slightly geeky, slightly quirky, and human-like yet warm, calm, collected, cool, and strepsirrhine fellow. Great hats, CSAs, mad scientist cooking, being unplanned, good reads, the wilderness, the arts, curious places, looking at the world sideways are what keep me running; not TV or party addiction, Vegas, or larvae. I love a cool bed of trees, make dramatic people calmer and don't have dentures or a subscription to Maxim. Or People. Or Guns and Ammo. I know the difference 'tween loose and lose Mussolini and Gandhi, and find constant hilarity in the mundane. New knowledge/experience is paramount; I've got the passport stamps and pantry to prove it.
REI socks, TED, and NPR: Yep. Malls, SPAM, religion, and sunbathing: Nah. I'm a smiling and laughing cynic, not a bitter and angry one. The humor is massively dry/random/absurd/sarcastic. I'm under 5'10"...GASP! L.A. never fully fit me as well as the Bay Area (see previous comment) but I've been here for a while and have found the good parts.
Looking for someone who has a pet lemur. Or a good dose of dryness/wit/sarcasm, a well-oiled smile mechanism, high curiosity, affinity for reality, an open mind, and a severe allergy to drama. "R U my soulmate!?!" or "VEGAS, BABY!!!" is probably not on your profile, nor are head shots. On a Saturday you might do things like go for a kick-arse hike, to a small theater or a weird art opening, check out a farmer's market and/or new restaurant (all interspersed with paying respect to the Ministry of Silly Walks, natch) instead of going to a mall and/or drinking massively by rote. The shallow: I stay in decent shape and prefer the same in some one.
Meet someone special from United States. I am passionate about life and what I do. I was raised in Chicago in the family with very strong values. I love and appreciate my family and friends more than anything else - they made me who I'm today. I'm happy with my career and where I'm in life, thus, I want to focus more on my personal life and now I'm looking for that special girl to share all this with.
I stay active and I try to spend a lot of my time outdoors (well, from time to time job keeps me very busy, but I always try to find time for outdoor activities - if there is a will there is a way - correct?) - museums, art shows, movies, coffee shops, beaches, hikes, weekend getaways (not necessarily in that order). I'm not the surfer type, but to make me happy it can be as simple as walking or biking by the beach after work - this is not the activity or the place that counts to me, but the company of someone special.
I'm always open to trying something new and I'm willing to do it at least twice (yes, not once, but twice, just to make sure that the first impression was right). However, as much as I try to be active, I know how to slow down and enjoy quality time at home, watch movie, cuddle on the couch (ok, guys do it too) and just simply kick back. So honestly, I can say that I'm happy, career oriented man with balanced life who is looking for that special person who would share similar interests and values.
It is not easy to describe my perfect match since to me the whole person is important - well, nobody is perfect (ok, I should know by now and I was told many times that women are 99.9% correct - but sometimes I still have a problem acknowledging this вЂ“ see, I'm not perfect either - lol). The best I can do is to say that I will know it when I see you. In general, I am looking for someone with a great personality and sense of humor - no drama please. Being positive in life is a must вЂ“ like I said, IвЂ™m happy and I want us to build on that. I want this special girl to COMPLEMENT my life - relationship means two and I strongly believe in equality - treat somebody the way you want to be treaded - period.
Best of luck in your search and to my вЂњMatchвЂќ - talk to you soon.
