Date men and women from California, United States. I've been on this journey for quite some time already and I continue to be amazed at the wonders of this universe. The most pristine thing I've seen is a child's curiosity. I hope I'll always have that spark of imagination in me. And while learning all these things is rewarding in of itself, I'd very much like to share and explore all these ideas with someone special to me.
I'm very optimistic and I know how to be happy. I enjoy spending time experiencing stories, either through books, movies or computer games. Computer games have always been my favorite because there's the additional element of interaction and challenge. I also like music. I've been playing piano and singing in chorus for a long time. These days I'm mostly a spectator, but this may change in the future. And when I want to just be in the moment I like to go out for a bike ride, go on a hike or watch stars in the backyard.
I'm also very respectful and willing to help. I've always liked tutoring and I like contributing to open source projects in the communities I'm engaged with. I'm very collected and you can be sure I'll be there for you, but I also know when to let go and just have fun. A little dirt never hurt anyone. ;)
Meet a soulmate from California, United States. Myself: easy going, athletic, down-to-earth, don't take life to seriously, who loves dogs, is a hopeless romantic, whom just wants to have fun and enjoy life type of guy. Now all I have to do is find a girl with whom to have fun and enjoy life with. Its hard finding the right girl in this town (I know she's out there somewhere). I'm just so busy with work I don't have the time to date regularly, so I thought I would give the online dating thing a shot. Plus, there comes a point in ones life when you have to start thinking about spending and sharing your time w/ only one person.
My ideal girl: has to be honest, romantic, intelligent, FUNNY ( laughing's a requirement ladies, cause I love to laugh and I love to make my girl laugh), sexy, caring, adventurous, respectful, family oriented w/ a strong sense of values, and independence. A girl who carries herself w/ respect and dignity. Someone who can enjoy herself and find the fun in whatever it might be, in other words, a down-to-earth girl who doesn't take herself and life to serious. The biggest factor for me in a relationship is Communication when you have that as your foundation everything else falls into place. ( call me old fashion ). I don't like drama- believe me I've had my share in my brief 35yrs. I'm not the type of guy who's quick to rush into anything. Taking things slow becoming friends first and making new friends is alright with me.
I don't make myself out to be something I'm not. I try to live a positive/healthy life and try my best to help others in need. I'm the type of guy who can adapt to whatever the scene might be. I love to travel when the opportunity presents itself. I use to travel a lot for my previous job spending time in awesome cities and meeting some cool people from the East Coast to the West Coast (I enjoy making new friends). However, with the constant traveling its really hard to maintain a steady relationship when your always out of town.
Lastly you must love dogs I have a big heart for dogs. Also, I unfortunately can't IM from an iPAD sorry ladies (Thanks Apple ) :(
Date people from California, United States. The author creates games for a living - but don't let that scare you, it's work. He is both a techno-phile and cultural. But unlike many such types, he likes to get out of the house as well.
Not religious at all and an excellent speller. He often tips in his chair, but he has all ten toes and fingers. He possesses all his parts, except for a few spare tonsils and wisdom teeth which were not necessary. He believes in Costco, but not Wal-Mart.
He enjoys all types of movies and believes Netflix is a great thing. But he also is a reader who has two large full bookcases in his living room.
He is intensely loyal, and is looking for people to meet in the Real World(TM) rather than online penpals.
He is looking for someone to explore with; Starting with Los Angeles, and moving on to Hawaii, Europe, Australia and beyond.
He has plans to hike Half Dome, Whitney and Baldy in the next few years. Edit: He just hiked Baldy!
He'll plan dates, so you don't have to.
He's very attracted to smart women who have their stuff together. Enjoy random events around town, hiking, reading, trying new restaurants, shows, traveling, and just exploring the city? Like a good balance of outdoors activities as well as indoors activities? You may be his match....

Destiny will take its course, anyhow...

Date people from California, United States. I think the greatest challenge in life is to see things as they really are rather than the way we want them to be or are afraid of them being. If you can do that, the world is a much more enjoyable place. I am looking for someone to grow on over time. I am in no rush, and I often find it interesting to see the difference between a person you just meet and one you have grown comfortable with.
I enjoy all kinds of things, nature most of all, but cooking a great meal together, going out to nice restaurants, having drinks with a spectacular view. I am open to new things, especially if you really enjoy them. I go with the joy compass whatever direction that points to.
Meet a soulmate from California, United States. I have always been very driven and ambitious about enjoying life, and have strived to enjoy the passion of the outdoors. My normal wardrobe includes a wetsuit, helmets, sometimes body-armor for my passion of mountain biking, surfing and snowboarding. My pursuit of fun in the outdoors has come at the price of trying to find my true soul mate. IвЂ™ve been told I do not act or look my age, Duh? and finding someone to stay busy and active with at my age is impossible? (Have you heard this before?) I like to stay busy and active, it is when I'm at my best, I've been an outdoors nut my whole life, (IвЂ™m not extreme) but very passionate about having fun, and food, all types of food ( Yummy) . I love gourmet restaurants, cooking, wines and coffee. If I have to sit still, it would be to watch a horror, Sci-fiction or Action flick, however lately it has been cooking shows, Diners, Dives and Drive Thru and Chopped? On occasion, I will read articles about science, home decor, and space discoveries (nerdy I know) I considered myself a closet Artist, painting abstracts, home design and repairs on occasion. I enjoy Farmers Market, The Grove, Third Street Promenade, coffee shops, italian Deli's and specialty grocery stores, (Impulse buyer of breads, Prosciutto, cheese, pate and wines). When relaxing at home, I love making pizza from scratch, BBQ and horderves, tasting wine while Lounging in the backyard (relaxing is a serious sport). Family is always first, which includes my moms dog.
That being said, I will not judge anyone for what they think. I love my freedom and enjoy my time alone, but enjoy the idea of having someone to escape with and forget about everything else. I been described as a geek, dork, nerd jock and weird. I believe in silliness, do we share this quality? I love to laugh have fun and be spontaneous, but I also enjoy and take comfort in my daily routine. I think pretty realistically but am not afraid to dream big. I have a lot of goals and can be truly determined when I want something. I like a woman who is confident and does not mind displays of affection in public. Someone who is caring, honest, and generous with her love. Being active and healthy is a pretty essential part of my life, so I need someone with similiar lifestyle and hobbies. I find ambition and drive extremely attractive in a woman, but a keen sense of humor, a kind heart, and family values along with good appetite a must.(sorry no vegans) I want to share from your plate?
I think that Snowboarding and surfing can be accomplished in the same day with the help of lots of coffee. Purchase youвЂ™re E ticket and carry your beach towel before emailing.

Date someone special from Westchester, United States. As noted in my profile, I've been divorced for 16 years and currently have three sons in college with a daughter having graduated with her masters, married and raising three young girls. Naturally I feel blessed to have experienced life as in a traditional household as a father, husband, and thus I have no desire to repeat that process.
An enjoyment of the outdoors and my background in sports and athletics naturally requires that my partner is comfortable with someone who generally thrives on activity. This doesn't mean that she engage in sports to the same degree; but, an understanding that the Final Four means more to me than attending another event during that time period is important.
Now, why would someone looking for a mate spend so much time discussing such "small" things focused on seemingly "selfish" qualities. Well, too often, individuals portray images that "sound good" in an effort to attract someone; well, I know I'm a truly great person who cares about others first, and refuse to waste my time or someone else with the "Hollywood Images" reflective in Southern Calif. individuals.
Wow! Now who would be interested in someone projecting such negative viewpoints. Well, hopefully you. That is if your are an honest individual looking to enjoy life and the gifts given with someone who experiences more joy when the individual accompaning him is truly having a great time.
Okay, so you have some idea of my thoughts; then, you may wonder "Why would you look for a Match on the internet". I'm wondering the same about you. Well considering, recently ending a 9 year relationship, one must go within to assure that all is secure within before looking to fill the void of establishing another relationship. So, here I am.
Meet a soulmate from Westchester, United States. I don't have an "ideal match", as people are so different. I like to be surprised by positive personalities!
At times I can be pretty tough and dark, but I'm always honest and do my best to communicate my feelings. Life is too short not to enjoy it.
I am very well centered, but not that I can't enjoy the occaisonal craziness. Be bold! A faint heart and all that.. *grin*
Date men and women from California, United States. I have been and continue to be blessed with a career that could be described as enchanted. I have served in some of the most senior positions in the executive branch of the Federal government as well as senior and executive management positions in the private sector. I am well grounded professional, well educated, happy by nature and concerned for the welfare of others. I have been referred to as the go-to guy whenever there's a problem. When I'm at home alone, I divide my time to include family and dear friends, the television, a good workout, a wide variety of music, movies and the computer. For me a perfect date is one where we had a lot to talk about, enjoyed each other's company and decided not to end the evening apart. On Sunday afternoons, I like to be at home with that special lady cooling it with the game, some hip music (which could included anything from Earth, Wind and Fire, Quincy Jones, Randy Newman, Blondie to Alicia Keys, Louis Armstrong, Bach, Rossini and Tchaikovsky)and preparing for the week ahead.
In my free time I like to work with kids at a catholic grade school in a low income section of Los Angeles. I want to spend more time teaching these kids how to set and achieve goals. Because of their economic situation, my goal is to expose these kids to people, careers, places and experiences they would not normally encounter. I would like to expand these kids sphere of availability. By exposing these young people to a world that might not normally see, they well be able to dream about and achieve goals capable of enriching their lives for themselves and their families and truly living the American dream.
I want to try all the things I've always wanted to do. I look forward to seeing where this leads us. Feel free to drop me a line if, like me, you've had it with one-night stands and want something more. I'm not changing my life, I'm just fine tuning it!
What am I looking for:
I'll know you by your reply! It would help if you do believe in God and spend time helping us less fortunate than you. Can you laugh at yourself and admit your mistakes? Can you say you are sorry when something you said or did hurt another? Do you believe that service to others is the key to a joyful life? Do you strive to be both honest and clear when dealing with others? Are you honest and uninhibited in your intimate relationships? If you believe that this is the way life should be and the way you try to live, we may have a match!! If you are not able to answer yes to the questions above but can see the value of doing so, let's talk!!
Meet a man from California, United States. About me вЂ“ IвЂ™m very fit and take care of my body by eating correctly and working out. I like the outdoors, going to movies, traveling (recent trips have been to Mammoth, Santa Barbara wine country, Big Bear, San Francisco, and Seattle вЂ“ one of my favorite spots is PikeвЂ™s Market). I enjoy music, concerts, playing sports, having a glass of wine while watching a Netflix movie at home, and dining out. I am organized and easy going with lots of energy. I retired seven years ago and I am financially responsible. I am positive, stable, a good listener, and a people person. I have a great life since retiring but I am missing that special person.
I have a few hobbies, one of which is restoring my California Craftsman properties. I enjoy going to swap meets and buying 100-yr-old stained glass windows, glass door knobs, period (art deco, Arts and Crafts, and Spanish) light fixtures. My antique вЂњfindsвЂќ have been a fun part of restoring my nearby Venice beach rentals.
My friends enjoy my homemade fruit liqueurs that I start every summer and give as gifts at Christmas time. I cook for myself, and make my special chili and fudge for friends and family.
Family and friends are very important to me. I have been blessed with three beautiful grown daughters and one grandson. While I am very close to the girls and their families, they all live out of town and I only see them a couple of times a year.
Several times a week I play paddle tennis (no, itвЂ™s not ping pong!) and I go to the gym nearly every day. I donвЂ™t golf but I do have my own clubs just in case you golf and would like to teach me.
I am looking for a companion who is unattached and willing to consider a committed relationship. I know that chemistry and lifestyle are important so some of the traits I am looking for include: you are a happy person, have a positive outlook, are fit, active, have a sense of adventure, are fun loving, thoughtful, honest, sincere, family oriented, have a sense of humor, and enjoy romance.
I have a great lifestyle. I am a happy person, and I am looking to share my life with someone special. Hopefully youвЂ™re the one.
This is my first time using a dating service and my pictures are very recent. LetвЂ™s have a cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine and have a conversation about each other.
If you like some of the same things I feel and do, IвЂ™d love to hear from you.
