Midwestern man looking for his California gold: I am a simple man who wants to find my best friend, enjoy life and have a future together. I have been teaching my first and kindergarten students in LA for 9 years now. It brings me joy and encouragement to shape their lives in a positive way. I am compassionate and loving towards others. It would be nice to meet a positive and fun loving woman who enjoys being athletic and the outdoors. I get along best with women who like to laugh, have a kind word to say about people, can find enjoyment in what they are doing no matter what. I know dating in LA isn't the best but a woman's attitude and simple manners goes a long way with me. I want to be treated with the same respect that I treat you.
