Date men and women from United States / Colorado, 44 year old

Date single man from Colorado, United States. Wow. This seems a little bit like a high school essay - "Describe who and what you're looking for in 4000 characters, or less." Well, that last bit took care of about 120 of them. Now I guess I have to actually come up with something to say.
First and foremost, I'm looking for a friend. Any meaningful relationship has to start with that as the base. While I'm definitely looking for a long term relationship, I'm not looking to dive headfirst into one without first building a solid friendship. I'm a pretty independent person, and the woman I'm looking for needs to be the same. Someone who realizes that two people won't share all the same interests and passions, while appreciating that those differences add to a relationship, rather than detract from it. I think it's healthy for people to have interests and pursuits outside of those that are shared by a couple.
I'm looking for someone who has interests in life beyond the simply material. While everyone wants to be comfortable and have nice things, I'm not interested in acquiring things for the sake of it. Things on their own don't bring happiness. That's not to say that I don't care about financial gains in my career, I'm just not obsessed with it. I'm far more interested in doing something meaningful to me, than working at something I hate for a larger monetary gain. I'm looking for someone who is passionate about something, be it their job, hobbies, or personal beliefs. I want to be challenged and surprised, and I hope the person I'm with feels the same.
Spontaneity, creativity, and new experiences are key to a good relationship as well. To me, there's nothing worse than a relationship that quickly devolves into eating out at the local chain restaurant, followed by seeing the newest Hollywood movie, every week. Not that dinner and a movie can't be fun, but everything in moderation, including moderation. Colorado is a big place, and two people should be able to find plenty of new and exciting things to do for years.

Meet someone special from Colorado, United States. I'm a committed educator and passionate reader who hopes to inspire children to become life-long lovers of literature. I don't particularly enjoy the company of strangers and am not one to attend social gatherings, especially those where alcohol is served or where smokers congregate. I'm not particularly good at cultivating friends and don't naturally seek companionship. You're not going to meet me in a bar. I like cycling and I'm on my bike almost every day of the year. I also spend some time each day in the pool, on the trail or at home exercising. I'm attracted to fit women, confident in who they are and where they're going. If I have an ideal it is a petite brunette who wears eyeglasses, which I find particularly attractive. A big plus would be a woman who also likes to read and would share her interest in books with me. I'm not a family man, that is, I'm not deeply attached to my family, whose interests are far afield from mine. I'm not a devout believer in any religion but I appreciate the mythology of most. I enjoy my own company as much as I might enjoy sharing time with one other person whom I loved.

Date a man from Colorado, United States. Never thought I would be here....but here I am!
Recently moved here from Montana and hoping to meet someone interesting, kind, happy, honest, positive and AVAILABLE....I grew up in South Carolina and I've lived all over the US. My time in the military has allowed me to visit many countries all over the globe, but I usually don't leave the Rocky Mountains for long....I always come back....however, occasional trips to the beaches are mandatory.
I hope to meet someone that appreciates a kind, very open, and often romantic guy. I enjoy spending quite a bit of my time outdoors, both working and recreating. Hiking and exploring are also a favorite pasttime. I've learned to appreciate how much life has to offer, without losing sight of the fact that some of the most wonderful things in life are the most simple....
I have 3 amazing children that I adore.....truthfully, I enjoy all (most) children. I love their happiness, energy, creativity, beautiful open little minds.....and their unclouded outlook on life. I enjoy looking at life through a child's eyes....they always make me smile....
If anything I've said happens to interest or intrigue you, or if you have questions, please feel free to let me know...
Best of luck with your search!

I work out regularly and would love to find someone that sees the value in at least attempting to stay healthy. Sometimes its easier than others...a great tasting meal is hard to pass up. Im driven to succeed at everything I do, and feel that if your going to do it, do it right! I am old fashioned, the kind of guy that opens the door for you and pulls your chair out as well. And I have done everything in my power to instill those basice values in my children. I have what I think is a great sense of humor and love to is to short not to laugh everyday...the world just does not have to be taken so seriously.
I would love to find someone with old fashioned values, likes to hold hands and doesn't have a problem with public affection or letting those around them know how they feel. I love getting out but also love curling up next to a fire and watching a movie on the couch.
If any of this resonates with you give me a shout...I would love to hear from you.

Date people from Colorado, United States. Originally from Chicago, I think I’m the stereotypical “nice guy” that often gets overlooked (if you're attracted to "players" then we won't have much to talk about). I’m easy-going, honest, and dependable and am truly appreciative of the opportunities I’ve been given. I try to make the most of every day and am passionate about trying to make a difference through both professional and personal interactions. My relationships with my friends/family and experiencing new things are high priorities, as such, I’m constantly looking for opportunities to grow and learn whether through travel, academic endeavors or meeting new people.
I’m interested in meeting an intelligent, confident woman who lives life with passion and integrity. She is emotionally healthy and available and although she has strong values, her curiosity and adventurous spirit allow her to be spontaneous and open-minded. My ideal match also has a great sense of humor (life is far too short not to enjoy it) and believes that romance is not a lost art. She seeks to obtain a healthy balance between her personal and professional pursuits and communicates openly and honestly. Individually, she is sincere, attentive and respectful of others; together we have a positive outlook on life and eagerly view each day as an opportunity, not a chore. Additionally, we share similar interests while being mindful of maintaining our respective identities. Since I also place a high priority on my relationships with family and friends, the desire to someday have a family is extremely important.

Meet men and women from Colorado, United States. Quiet a long job but would try my best well I'm a friendly, sweet, attractive, pretty relaxed person, I have a passion for creativity, and a curiosity of people from backgrounds that are not my own. I choose friends that are introspective, kind, and lets me know when I'm being too serious!
I'm interested in meeting new people. I'm usually a bubbly person but can also be quiet depending on the company. I work on rigs, although I'm not a typical nerd! Like other people i do the usual, i drink moderately, i do smoke but trying to quit and i enjoy seeing lovely movies. I would love to meet a nice woman who is kind, honest and has a cute sense of humor. Starting as friends and then getting to know each other would be my delight. I desire a woman who is patient and a piece keeper. Respect is very important. A woman who takes family very important and can see a relationship as a two way street, one who will lend a shoulder when the other is down. I am willing to share life's joy and sorrows with that special woman. I am just a one man woman type of person and i am here in search of that woman with a heart of gold yet a simple woman at heart to be my best friend and soul mate.

Date single man from United States. Looking for a loving woman that will except me for my flaws and will help me be a better man/person. Must be friends before moving on to the next step. Must be able to understand each other without harsh arguing.

Meet someone special from United States. Looking for a dedicated, honest, sincere, woman to start enjoying life again. all in all I'm very laid back with an awesome job that I really enjoy. Not into drama just want to share great times together and have fun in life.

Date a man from United States. I have made some changes to my profile because I decided I’d rather be transparently honest about myself, having faith that the right person will read it, and not try to market myself as someone I am not. I am driven to achieve what I want from life, while giving back where and when I can. I have started my journey to understanding my life’s purpose; however, I am a people-person and I would much rather experience the journey with the right person.
I'm a modest man who values honesty, communication, intelligence, mutual respect and appreciation, and an open mind. I value the importance of family. I am laid back and appreciate the lighter side of life. Life will always send us curve balls that cause us to be serious, emotional, angry, afraid, and intense, but I'm pretty good at hitting curve balls. I have an open and witty sense of humor. When I'm with friends and family, I'm always smiling or laughing, or making others laugh. I enjoy trying and doing new things. I enjoy getting outdoors and experiencing the beauty around us, which we often let pass us by in our lives. Whatever it is, keeping an open mind is key.
My friends consider me a very kind, reliable, warm-hearted and giving person, who is always fun to be around. I love to cook and I find it very rewarding to cook a big meal for friends and family. I really like traveling in all its forms, even the serenity of a good road trip (just got back from one with my son - excellent). I have traveled and lived from coast to coast and have lived in Cameroon and Mexico. Whenever possible, the beach is my destination location and, for me, there aren’t many things much more relaxing than warm sand and cool, salty water.
I look forward to sharing my time, my thoughts and feelings, and my life experiences with a woman who is looking for the same. I want a partner who inspires me to be the best person I can be, and expects the same inspiration from me. I’m looking for a serious relationship and not just hooking up. For me, trust is the basis for respect and appreciation, enduring physical intimacy, and open, two-way communication.
You can expect me to treat you with respect; to listen when no one else will; to nudge you when you’re uncertain about your next step; to hold your hand so you know someone is there; and to be there for you when life is not so kind. As for now, I’m just an email away. If you’ve gotten this far and are not the least bit interested, I wish you the best in your search for your right person.

As of 7-24-2013; I've now been on a few dates. I have found the pictures posted on Match profiles, are not the same women picture on their profile. Men are visional, if you start a relationship misleading me, it’s not going to work out. Be honest, I will.

I love red wine. I am a bit of a romantic. I adore banter, wit, belly laughs, goofiness. I am a cup half full kinda guy. Looking for a partner, a relationship; and knowing you never know where you are going to find it. (Why not here?) I have a 4 year old niece who repeatedly calls me "silly"...and shakes her head.
I am looking for someone who is intelligent, but also smart; funny and of course cute. You have a bit of an athletic side.
You like staying in as much as going out, because time well spent is always enjoyable, no matter the location.
You wear whatever makes you comfortable, and it shows in your confidence.
You are looking for a relationship, partnership, friendship.
