Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love life and I love the outdoors. I have an outgoing and
adventurous spirit and love to experience new things and new
places. My primary passion is trail riding and camping with friends
and my mules Pepper and Toby. I live in Santa Cruz and enjoy the
privilege of riding in some of the most beautiful country around. I
have traveled all over the world on business and pleasure and speak
some Spanish. I work in the mobile phone software industry so I
have both high and low tech in my life. I enjoy both romantic
dinners at a fine restaurant just as much as a good ‘ol BBQ by the
campfire. My friends tell me I’m funny and I like to make people
laugh. I even dabble in improvisational acting, playing street
characters at the Dickens Christmas Fair in SF. I am looking for
someone to share all this with as well as share their passions and
life. I am a lifelong learner and try to learn from everyone around
me. My perfect match would be a mature woman who is comfortable in
her own skin. One who knows what she wants and has a zest for life
and new things. It would be wonderful if she shared my passion for
all things equine, but it's not a deal breaker. Just be open to new
adventures and I will do the same. I am looking for something long
term, although we could start out as just riding buddies (trail
riding mostly) or travel partners?. What about you? Want someone
who knows who he is and is outgoing and fun to be around? Want to
travel and experience new places and new things as well as relax
and sit by the fire? Love to camp in style and see the world from
the back of a horse? or cruise ship? or on foot with a backpack on?
Give me a call!
PS I consider myself a gentleman rancher, sans ranch. Chivalry is
not dead. The "robot" says I am "Less Mannered". I think it has a
screw loose. I've got no idea how it came up with that label.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I'm not learning new things, I'm working and riding and
camping with friends. For me work/life balance is key. I love what
I do at work and that allows me to play at things I love. I try to
keep tabs on my two beautiful grown daughters but they live with
their mom and don't need dad so much anymore. I took some time off
after my wife & I split up (amicably) and am ready now for the
next exciting chapter in this thing we call life! I truly believe
that 1 + 1 = 3 and being able sharing your life with someone
special is a true gift.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creating things. Building things. Fixing things. Helping people. My
job. Trail riding.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very outgoing, smart & funny.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
SciFi movies, Classic Rock, good food from around the world.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, Friends, Riding, Traveling, the Outdoors, Food, Music -- ok
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hummm, what thoughts occupy my mind most of the time? I guess I am
always planning, planning something. Could be work related, could
be a camp out, could be plans for the next space shuttle! I am a
very organized guy and when I say I'll do something, I do it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a nice meal (yes, I can cook ;-) and then watch a good
movie. Or I'm packing for a weekend camping trip, or headed off to
a local club to go dancing with friends.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are looking for someone who knows who he is and is outgoing and
fun to be around. Someone who knows what he wants and is honest
about it and expects the same from his partner. Message me if you
want to travel and experience new places and new things as well as
relax and cuddle on the beach and watch the sunset; message me if
you love the outdoors and like to camp (in style) and if you love
to trail ride, that's a bonus! Doug.
