Date single boy from California, United States. Staying mentally and physically active is important to me. Equally important is a broad sense of humor. I take my pursuits seriously, but not myself. My friends call me intense, restless, and passionate though they know I am reliable, self-motivated, and constantly joke around.
I'm originally from Texas, finished my BS in electrical engineering, and worked as a software engineer before deciding that I wanted to go to grad school in California to follow my passions for new media and computer music. I finished a MS in Media Arts and Technology and am currently working towards a PhD in the same field while freelancing as a software developer.
When I'm not working I like to keep moving- specifically inline speed skating, cycling, running, hiking, motorcycling, camping, kayaking, yoga, swimming, snowboarding, and cross country (skate) skiing. I compete regularly in inline speed skating marathons.
I'd like to find someone that is passionate about their work and/or hobbies. I'm a driven person but know how to relax, and I'd like to find someone similar.
Meet single boy from California, United States. First time doing this so I guess I should start with the basics:
i am 28 years old,
I am a special educational assistant for the county,
I coach college baseball,
and I work for a national baseball company that teaches high school kids.
So, as you can tell I am a worker, I am extremely driven in with my goal as becoming a college head coach/professional coach.
But, I am on here for a reason. To try and meet that special someone who gets and understands who I am. I am not in any rush, just wanted to try something new, fresh and different.
I am on the road a lot, but when I am home I love where I live and try to take advantage of it. Hanging with friends or just hanging out by the beach.
Working with the kids has really helped me to discover what kind of man I am, patient, kind, energetic, respectfull, and funny. I love life and love to make people laugh. If you are sarcastic...I can enjoy that too... :)
Sports, movies, the beach, hiking, bowling, and new to it, photography are just some of the hobbies.
What I am looking for is someone who is fun, energetic, goofy, but is driven. Someone who can keep me on my toes, or after a long day just walk on the beach or sit in for a flick. Being open to all the flavors of life is something that I take pride in so I am not holding this to be the standard, but more as a basic idea.
Date someone special from California, United States. About Me
I will open the door for a woman, stand up when she comes to the table and get her chair when she sits down. I walk on the outside of the sidewalk. I put my napkin on my lap. I tell the truth. I prefer deep talk to weather talk which can make people uncomfortable at times.
I hike regularly. I am very close with my family (who do not live locally) and my 9 year old son who I have most of the time. He goes to Crane School. I still get along with his mom too.
I am a member of the Coral Casino, a vegetarian, and I practice yoga.
I am funny, sensitive and generous.
I am into family and personal relationships. (I am not very interested in surface friendships.)
So much of my life is spent parenting. I would like to find a woman who is compatible at home who I could live with. That means a woman who can be a kid person because I have a child.
Meet men and women from United States. Hi and thanks for checking in. My friends would say I'm laid back, funny,witty, adventurous, spontaneous, among other things which I hope are good !
I work full time but I enjoy life as much as I can. I guess you gotta go out and do the things you love. It keeps me young and pretty stress free as well.
I do love Santa Barbara county. It offers so many cool things to do at a relatively close distance. Maybe that's why I don't travel all that much. I don't have to ... it's really nice here and the weather is perfect !
And you ... I like a woman with a good sense of humor, athletic, clever, and just plain fun to be with. Make me laugh, it's good for us !
You gotta love the beach too -
So, feel free to say hi and let me know if you want to go do something cool like surfing, stand up paddling, (I teach both), or play a round of frisbee/disc golf. Of course, I do also like to see live music and enjoy a bbq with some friends and hang out.
Till then, enjoy &
Best of luck to all -
Date single man from California, United States. вЂњSing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.вЂќ From The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran.
These words of beautiful poetry capture a big part of who I am and who I seek as a companion and lover. The two things I value most in a relationship, sharing and independence, are essential to a healthy relationship based on equal love and respect. Mine has been a rich life, full of adventure and enterprise, at times darkened by sadness and failure, but on balance teeming with joy that I am eager to share with someone who can herself share with me the richness of her own life. I seek a relationship in which I can continue to grow as a person.

Date a soulmate from United States. I enjoy nature (a lot!). I have solo camped on 4 islands of the Channel Island Nat'l Park. I have been to the Grand Cyn. for camping/hiking (the end of last October...it was cold). I am always ready to go camping (especially in a tent). I go regularly to the gym. I lift free weights at the gym 3 to 4 X's a week. I am in really good shape for a 56 yr. old woman. I am a docent at Lotusland...been there 3 yrs.; the garden is so beautiful. I did my 11th consecutive i Madonnari in Santa Barbara this past Memorial day week-end. I do an 8' X 12' (my own art work). One of my favorite things to do...doodle art on the ground. I guess I have some primative aspects to my nature. A bit of the little kid at play in the dirt in me. Fun. My dog is TDI certified and goes 1X a week to SB Cottage Hospital to do pet assisted therapy. We do PAT at the Ojai Rehab Center every other Thursday. It is important to volunteer in the community. Dewey, my French Bull Dog, makes everyone happy with his own special brand of humor. I dance (ballroom) at least 3hrs a week. I also do Latin dances and Swing. It'll be 2 yrs. this January that I started to dance. I am not an accomplished dancer, but I do enjoy it. I teach art to an autistic gentleman..I find it very rewarding. I have had 6 solo art shows in SB and have been in many group shows. I am mostly retired but not tired. I'm the kind of gal that'll enjoy watching a foiotball or basketball game with you.
