I enjoy Tom as he allows us to have a conversation together – in that we are both talking to each other – rather than the gentleman talking at me. Tom and I keep up with each other in conversations – in that we can talk about things and have the subject change quickly and keep going. He and I share a lot of laughs. I find Tom to be funny. Tom is respectful of me and is asking questions straight forward about what I like or not as I do him. We are getting to know each other so time will tell if we are a match.
Please place my membership on hold. Tom and I need miore time to explore each other – both of us are going to be out of town the next 2+ weeks and intend to continue dating and getting to know each other better when we return to our respective homes.
I was beginning to think that I would never find someone that I could spark up a relationship with, and I was starting to think it was time to just give up. Then there was your positive attitude that assured me he is out there, and we just have to find him. Then you strongly encouraged me to meet Jody, and all I can say is, boy can you pick them! The night I met Jody he really did not want to meet for a coffee date. His preference was to meet for dinner so we could have time to have a real conversation instead of a 30 minute superficial one. When we had our initial phone conversation, I had mentioned to him I was going out of town to see my son in an event he was participating in. Then when we met for the first time, I must say he threw me for a loop, as the first thing he asked me about was how my sons’ event went and if I had a good time! Who would have thought meeting a man for the first time face to face he would show interest in me and my family! Jody is totally different than other men I have met. He makes me feel very comfortable and at ease, and he really listens when I am talking and shows interest in what I am sharing. I am very comfortable just being completely myself, up front and honest with him. We talk for hours effortlessly, and If we are not careful, time slips away from us. Flirtation just comes naturally for us with no effort needed whatsoever. Lucy, Jody can make me laugh uncontrollably, and he makes me feel very special all at the same time. One example, I believe it was our fourth date, and after dinner we took a walk in the park and it was getting dark. Jody stops and says in a very serious voice “Lisa, I am getting scared of the dark will you please hold my hand”? I could keep going on for we have many special moments such as this. I’d say we are friends first and foremost, but definitely moving past that stage into a blissful exclusive/committed relationship. One adjective that I tend to use a lot in describing our time spent together is “magical”.
Lucy, you have been instrumental in matching us of course because you are our matchmaker, but it’s so much more than that. Similarities in our lives are downright uncanny! Especially in regards to our late spouses. We absolutely have sparks between us, along with a strong connection and bond as we have experienced many of the same things. You really hit the nail on the head. I got the feeling from you that we really needed to meet each other even though we were both quite discouraged, but this match was somehow “special”. You hadn’t been my matchmaker for very long, but you seemed different and totally dedicated to finding the right person for me, and it happened quite fast! Also, my sessions with Heather really helped me to see things differently, lighten up, and truly increased my confidence. So to sum it up, whatever your intuition was it totally worked!! :-)) I can’t thank you enough!
With all this said I would like to put my membership on hold because I would like to get to know Jody on a deeper level. Thank you again for everything.
I HAVE HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE IN MY ASSOCIATION WITH CALIF SINGLES. YOU HAVE EXCEEDED WHAT I WAS TOLD . THE QUALITY OF PEOPLE THAT I HAVE MET WAS MORE THAN EXPECTED.
I HAVE MET THE PERSON THAT I FEEL EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE WITH. SHE IS VERY SHARP, LOVES TO JOKE AND HAS HIGH ENERGY AS WELL AS ENJOYS THINGS TOGETHER THAT WE BOTH ENJOY. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL, DOWN TO EARTH, VERY GENEROUS AND INTELLIGENT. SHE WILL JUMP RIGHT IN AND HELP IF NEEDED.
IT IS VERY HARD TO DESCRIBE ALL THE THINGS WE SHARE AND THOSE THAT WE DO NOT SHARE WE ENJOY DOING WITH EACH OTHER AND ENJOY BEING AROUND EACH OTHER. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT WE LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING TOGETHER.
WHEN I MET KAREN I FELT A CLOSENESS THAT I HAVE NEVER FELT BEFORE RIGHT OFF THE BAT. I DID NOT BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT AND THE REASON FOR NOT BELIEVING IS BECAUSE IT HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.
I THANK ALL THE PEOPLE AT CALIF SINGLES FOR THERE WORK AND FOLLOW THRU. I WOULD LIKE TO PUT MY MEMBERSHIP ON HOLD AND AGAIN THANK YOU ALL
I’d like to put the membership on hold. Rob and I are going to give it a try. He is easy going, kind, attractive, culturally adept, creative & artistic, intelligent, independent, etc.
My experience on the first date was that we sat and talked at the restaurant and 3 hours went by without our noticing. We got together again a few more times and there was a strong attraction and a relaxed energy between us where we could be ourselves without trying. He’s met my son, loves him, feels very comfortable around him, and visa-verse for my son. It seems like a good fit.
Renetta is a nice person that I would like to now. She likes to talk. She is a good lady to talk to. I like the way you work with me. I would like to have my membership on hold.
The is to notify you that I want to be placed on “happy hold” for now. I am seeing Cate and we have quite a bit in common. She is intelligent, with topics of interest in common for good conversation and growth. She is affectionate, easy to be with, and we both enjoy walking, exploring and many, varied experiences. She is a most interesting woman.
I appreciated the many contacts you gave me, met a lot of women, and for the most part, it was a good and on-going experience. Thanks Lisa.
Regarding Judy, I found her visually to be very attractive, with a very nice figure, and a nice build (slender). She was also very nicely dressed, without being over-dressed. Excellent first impression. In talking with her I found her to be very articulate and open, have a great sense of humor, and a nice personality. We immediately found that we have a lot of common interests, including golf, wine, music, the arts, etc. Although we did not immediately recognize each other at the outset, after talking for about 15 minutes I realized that I had met her and her now late husband some time around 1987 when they first came to the Modesto area, and that we had attended some social functions together. As soon as we exchanged last names, everything clicked. We are now contemplating the things that we will start with to get to know each better (local concerts and/or theater events, dinning out, golfing, wine tastings), to see if we can indeed build this into a long term relationship. We certainly had a great time together in our first encounter, with both of us indicating such. I think it was comforting to Judy to meet someone she already knew something about, since she is venturing into a new world after having been married to one man for almost 40 years.
I know I have been a challenging case for your matchmaking department, and for you, Lucy, in particular. I am not interested in casual dating, and have therefore quickly put aside any ladies that I was introduced to that I did not consider to be strong possibles as my last partner in life. Finally, I have met a lady that has such potential. Only time will tell how this plays out. Thank you, Lucy, for your patience and understanding. It has always been a pleasure talking with you, Lucy.
I do want to confirm that I want to put my membership on hold while I explore the possibilities with Judy. At this point it appears that she represents everything I was looking for in a partner, so, we will see over time if this is indeed the case.
On an exceedingly superficial level: Les has a mustache (which is a definite plus!); he’s a Scorpio, which includes being a gentleman with a momentary hesitation anytime we brush up against differences – he’s a basketball fan while I prefer baseball, for example. He has a good smile which spends most of its time in hiding, though I teased it out once or twice. He works with people – always a challenge – and seems to enjoy doing so, which says that he isn’t a hermit, however much he’d like to be. He cares for/about his children – tries to hide it but to no avail. I didn’t feel any fireworks, although I did feel immediately comfortable. The moment he reached out and laced his fingers with mine spoke volumes although I’m not, yet, certain where this story is going.
I would like to place my membership on hold long enough to figure out where Les and I are going from here. If anywhere.
I found Megan to be attentive and responsive. I was a bit put off when I called the first time and had to leave a message: I wasn’t expecting to be asked my age! After some thought I think I figured out why that is a factor. It appears that Megan reviews a client profile in some depth and that she has the ability to pull together two people who are compatible if not combustible. Being told how to behave at this stage of life seems a bit odd; however, if I were any good at it I wouldn’t need Megan and her co-workers to help me find someone who might be willing to share the rest of my life with me!
Please place my membership on hold while I get to know Rick better. We had our first date on Sunday and I can tell that he is well traveled and intelligent. He has a sense of style and was surprisingly handsome with a very nice smile.
I like that he drives a pickup truck and took charge ordering and was a gentleman in paying the bill. We have our second date tomorrow (Thursday) and I look forward to getting to know him better.
Thank you for the introduction and we will see what happens!
