Shaloha Cool

My name is Tom Salsberg . I'm from Toronto, Canada, although I've lived and vacationed in many other places in the world, especially L.A., California, where I have family.  My favourite places in the world are the states of Israel and Hawaii.

I first went vegetarian at age 15, in the Summer of 1973. In 1984 I became vegetarian a second time, and it stuck. I gave up eggs and dairy in 1988.  In 1989 I gave up honey.  In 2000 I divested my wardrobe of items made of wool, silk and leather.  For health reasons I follow a diet that is live or raw, and also low in oxalic acid.

I generally get along well with people, and am close with my family of origin.  I've made many friends over the years in various places, including through this website, and like to keep in touch.  I also need alone time to self-nurture, be it through sleep, meditation, listening to music or dancing (sometimes all four at the same time - LOL). 

I've worked as a record store sales clerk, a bus tour guide for travelling to and from rock concert trips, a mobile DJ at parties, an actor, a writer/editor, a Jewish youth outreach worker, a primary/junior Montessori and mainstream schoolteacher, a private tutor and educational therapist, an Adlerian psychotherapist and public speaker.  I am back now in sales and marketing.  I find this to be the least stressful work.  After all, everyone from little kids to senior citizens do it -- talking about why they like the things they like with other people and recommending it to them if they have similar interests and tastes.  Yup.  Everyone does network marketing, but only some people get paid for it.  In fact, it can offer the greatest earning potential -- through residual and leveraged income.  I love it when a few solid years of work, building up an organization, can take on a life of its own, and earnings, like a snowball careening down a mountainside, grows ever bigger as it rolls.  Call it "the butterfly effect", if you will.  Lol.

Presently I am an active member of a marketing team that makes this kind of work easy for nearly anyone with a computer, an internet connection and a willingness to do a little work for a couple of hours or so most days of the week.  You can experience what it is like to go through the guided information gathering process by entering your name and email address into the form you will find by clicking here.  If you are not interested in money online, but love watching horses running around in natural surroundings, you should click the link anyhow.

Politically I think I'd best be categorized as a small g, small c, green conservative with a strong love of freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and freedom to engage in the pursuit of happiness, with limited government set in place for the sole purpose of protecting those freedoms.  I've belonged to various political parties in the past, but none really fit me, so I hardly bother any more. 

Likewise, spirituality, I'm also somewhat of a mixed bag. Raised Jewish, very early on I became eclectic (e.g. belief in reincarnation at age 6). I've taken in knowledge from all the world's religions and feel at home in none. My spiritual belief system is panentheistic, in alignment with the American Transcendentalists (e.g., R.W. Emerson & H.D. Thoreau) & informed by the ancient astronaut theories of Zecharia Sitchin.  I guess that makes me a Sitchinistic Panentheistic Jew.  Can anyone point me to the nearest house of worship for my kind?  Hmmm.  I thought not.

Since 1978, I have meditated every day, usually twice daily. My mantra is a Jewish one, but I've practiced with other types previously. My personality is a peaceful and creative one, but don't confuse that with docility.  I will, to the extent I am able, stand up for that in which I believe!   Those who argue excitedly and boss others around will not elicit a compliant and happy response if they attempt such with me.  Unlike for some, anger and conflict is not my idea of a "turn on".  I like to peacefully and logically work differences out through caring, well reasoned communication.  I prefer the written form over verbal, generally, because it allows greater opportunity for thinking things through before responding, making a more thorough and well-considered response more feasible.

Almost veg diet, drinks alcohol With dinner   and never smokes.

Born and bred in New York, raised in LA. I'm recording engineer in West LA. The other side of my backyard is the eastern edge of Santa Monica. I don't eat meat but I'm a Pescatarian-seafood lover. I really enjoy cooking too. It always puts me in the moment and clears my mind of trivial anxieties. Of course I love music. I'm always looking for interesting new sounds, and would love to hear about your favorite local bands.

I try to see the humor in any situation - or, I can't help seeing the humor in any situation might actually be more accurate. I guess it depends on if you find it annoying.

None of my friends in LA are vegetarian, and I thought it would be fun to hang out with some people who get as excited as I do about going to a vegetarian restaurant once in a while. And it would make it easier to share food on a date! What's your favorite veggie friendly restaurant?

I'm a high school ESL teacher in a low-income area. I love what I do and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. It's my first year at the school I work at and it's been great. I invest a lot of time and energy into my career as a teacher, and I have a lot of respect for people who do the same with their own careers. It shows that you have the drive to be your absolute best and not BS your way through life.

I'm quirky and sarcastic, so you have to take a lot of what I say with a grain of salt. If you're sensitive, you may want to move on. I like a man with a  good sense of humor, so long as he doesn't hide behind his sense of humor.

I love to be active and I'm a bit of a health nut (I'm a vegetarian). I do yoga, kickboxing, weight lifting, zumba, and run. Outside of the gym, I like to do any kind of water sport, fencing, and horseback riding. I've been fencing for 12 years and horseback riding for 20. I had to give up horseback riding because I can't afford it right now, but I'd love to get back into it eventually. Needless to say, I need a partner who is content with more than just takeout and a movie at home for most dates. I'm not saying I don't enjoy staying in every so often, but I'd like to be with someone who is open to new experiences. 

I'm looking for a guy who has a lot of energy and goals that they plan to accomplish. Also, if you're looking for a fling, look elsewhere. Oh, and you get bonus points if you know how to cook/bake.

 

Jewish Vegetarian for Sydney, a  Vegan Sydney

, 61 year old Caucasian / White female, 5' 0 /152cm with Average build.

Vegan diet, Never drinks alcohol   and never smokes.

Lioness looking for lion tamer. Very independent. Love life, life, family, friends, career, driving with the top down, nights by the fireplace with hot chocolate, wildlife habitats, beaches, concerts, travel, trying to help make the world a better place and much more. I also enjoy learning about the various aspects of Judaism, particularly those that are mystical in nature.

I'm currently phasing out of a long and lucrative executive level career in the  real estate development field with the goal of locating a position with a non-profit organization focused on animal or environmental conservation. I also volunteer as the President of a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation organization. Although goal-oriented, I have no problem relaxing and would be just as happy growing my own fruit and vegetables on a farm surrounded by animals.

I would love to travel more, although I've learned that it's not so much about the place you visit but the experiences you have when you're there. Being in on Bulli Beach outside of Sydney where you can reach up and touch the moon, Tangalooma where wild dolphins eat fish from your hand, the feeling of peace in the Garden of Versailles with the sun beating down on your face, eating at the falafel shop on the top of the hill in Tzfat.  Places I plan to visit include Belize and the Galapagos to dive, Africa for gorilla trekking.

I am health-conscious, compassionate and an ethical vegan. I believe that all beings have the right to their own existence, and that kindness, strength of character and compassion are some of the most important attributes that a person can have.

Almost veg diet, drinks alcohol Socially   and never smokes.

I am 62 years of age, single of course, 5'3" tall, 113 pounds, petite, slim and fit with short blonde hair and hazel to brown eyes. Friends say that I am attractive, bright,confident, and have a great sense of humor. I was born and brought up in Montreal but I have been living in the West End of Vancouver for the last 15 years. As I have a background in the travel industry, I have travelled extensively. My interests include old movies, films and theatre, classic films, reading a good mystery or biorgraphy, music and concerts (music is my passion!), going out for dinner, East Indian food, children and animals though I do not have either, some cross country skiing, low level hiking, yoga and meditation classes and long walks. I am a semi-vegetarian as I still eat fish on occasion. I am Jewish but not really observant and consider myself a secular or Reform Jewish woman.

Vegan diet, Never drinks alcohol   and never smokes.
Look for me at the beach walking my dog or on the ski slopes in the winter. I am a nature girl and love the outdoors. My favorite meal is picking and eating veggies in the garden. I have not dated online and in fact have not dated in decades. My husband died in a car accident May 08. I miss being the beloved. Life was meant to be shared. I look 20 years younger than I am due to my diet and exercise. I have won some awards for short documentaries that I shot and edited. Monterey is where I am now as my daughter and her husband just had their first baby. I am a good grandmother and enjoy helping out the family. I also have a small organic farm in Sonoma County that I have leased out since my husband's passing. I have learned that the only way to make any changes is to start in my own mind first. I am very fit and can swim, snorkel, scuba, ski, cycle, hike, camp, roller skate, sail, yoga, and volunteer teaching swimming to minority kids.

Vegan diet, drinks alcohol Infrequently   and never smokes.
I'm a complex man of many dimensions. Born and raised in NYC,but spent a lot of time in the mountains,and traveling in the US and Europe. I'm educated (MA/English Lit.)but work mostly with my hands(Construction/Renovation). I've been a Poet/Performance Artist,laborer,plumber,writer,landlord,tenant,student,teacher,boss, peon,bike messenger,and general wild man. My heritage is Jewish,but I am not very religious. I'm much more interested in exploring the things that motivate the soul/spirit of humanity:the beauty,pain and emotions that move our lives,and how that translates to art. I work hard but love to play too. Walk,bike,skate,climb hills/rocks/trees,swim,work out,etc. Had many adventures,I'm ready for many more. I try to be healthy. I believe I have a good heart and a generous nature. Fiercely loyal to those I care for and want to give them all I can. I am a Vegan by spiritual and ethical choice, and believe in animal rights. Politically,I'm a liberal pragmatist. We must be responsible with the Earth,not destroy it.
Jewish Vegetarian for Andrew, a  Vegetarian Andrew

I'm one of the lucky one's. I knew my career from the age of 6 and am fortunate to be living that dream. I own my own veterinary hospital, run a non-profit and a day doesn't pass that I'm not grateful for knowing my "purpose" in life. It's important to me to be honest with myself and others, live consciously with passion,  and accomplish meaningful things with the gift of life. That's my serious side. I'm also lighthearted, playful, enjoy nature and animals, like adventure, love my family and friends, exercise regularly and want to travel more. 


In relationships, I feel that compatibility between people depends on seeing the world in a similar way (vegetarianism being a major key), that friendship depends on enjoyment of each others company and desire to be mutually supportive, that romance/love depends (among other things) on intangible chemistry and being able to stay in the moment with playfulness and laughter, and that longevity depends on mutual admiration. If I sound clinical, that couldn't be further from the truth for this liberal, animal-loving, tree-hugging hopeless romantic.


My past: I was engaged once and had one other meaningful long term relationship that I thought would have ended in marriage. It didn't....

Some things about myself........I'm sarcastic, compassionate, empathetic, can have a silly sense of humor, love hiking, swimming (especially with my dogs), skiing, movies, massage (giving and receiving), theatre, romantic settings and am willing/interested in learning ballroom dancing. I'm very health conscious minded, don't smoke or touch drugs (deal breaker for me if you do), and much, much more. My box is unlocked if you choose to look inside; just ask.

Hi, I'm Nava. I've been a vegetarian for 24 years, and I think It's the best way to live. Animals have the same right to live and eating them is so wrong! I love animals. Most of them are so pure and innocent! I live in Israel, which is a beautiful place! I hosted a few tourists from the US and from Europe at my house for about a week. All of them fell in love with Israel and hated to go back to their countries. Israel is NOT a war zone! It's a great cool place!

Vegetarian diet, drinks alcohol Infrequently   and never smokes.

    I am a deep ecologist, holistic family practitioner and emergency room physician, who built, and planted a farmstead on a rural Hawaii coastline over the past 23 years. I have been very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to study medicine/healing and to create a myriad of choices in my life. I've been privileged and have taken what I have learned and applied it to living a "fair-share" "one planet living" ecofootprint lifestyle which lives within the carrying capacity of the land and supports creating a fair, sustainable and healthy planet. I am currently on sabbatical to finish writing a book. I live on a beachfront farmstead that uses rocket stoves to cook, photovoltaics for energy, solar heating for hot water, and water catchment for drinking water. I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian who eats 100% organically grown food (1/2 from my farm [tropical fruit/nut orchards,vegetable gardens, goat milk/yogurt/cheese. chicken eggs] and part from the health food store e.g. grains and beans). I have never been married although I have had several long term and wonderful relationships with women who are still good friends; they wanted more of a city life with all of the conveniences of modern life that are placing us at odds with mother nature. I have no children.  I built my house on my days off which took about 10 years. It is is set back about 300 feet from the Pacific Ocean and it has panoramic views of the 2 volcanoes that formed this island.  My closest neighbor is ½ mile away. I like to sing, dance (ballroom and contemporary; currently in classes three nights a week; Argentine Tango, Swing, Waltz, Salsa, Bachata), play the recorder and acoustic guitar. listen to live music, lift weights, swim, snorkel meditate, bike, farm and cook. I enjoy Acoustic, Classic Rock n' Roll, New Age, World Music/Ethnic, blues and jazz. I like to read non fiction. I am a hard worker, responsible, romantic, earthy, disciplined, loyal and trustworthy.

Albert Einstein said, A human being is part of the whole, called by us the 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest -a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." I also like Ghandi quotes such as: Live simple so others can simply live,.... Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Vegan diet, drinks alcohol Socially   and never smokes.

I became a vegetarian in college, and am now vegan and feel great about it. I feel strongly about animal rights, and attend protests and demonstrations. Although I initially became vegetarian / vegan for ethical reasons, I have become increasingly interested in nutrition and health, too.

I enjoy all kinds of music, especially doo-wop, 60's music, soul, some 70's and 90's music, latin/ salsa, as well as contemporary indie. I also enjoy playing the guitar, reading (especially the NYT), walking around parks and preserves, and visiting the city.
