For me it's critical to keep a relationship free from the stress that unresolved issues generate. Emotional intimacy is a goal, not a stumbling block. I'm dating to meet a life partner and I don't have commitment issues. My views are slightly liberal and I consider a woman with similar leanings my best match, because political differences often reflect value differences. To me a brainy woman is sexy and attractive.
I have eclectic interests and I am eager and open to experiencing new activities. I love the wide array of activities that the Bay Area offers and I look forward to sharing them with a partner. Sunday brunch at a home style café, live music performances, a run or long walk at the beach, college football - Go Cardinal!, sporting events, travel (SoCal! Hawaii, Europe - let's go!), a weekend in wine country or exploring the West Coast, and lots of other activities also intrigue. I have an interest in community volunteering and I'd especially enjoy sharing that experience with a partner.
While I don't have children, I've always enjoyed being around them. I spent three years teaching and serving as a dorm parent at a boarding school and was constantly interacting with teens. After teaching I pursued a second advanced degree in Education at Stanford.
Do good things come in small packages? I'm proof they do, but in truth, I've always considered myself a giant in the things that matter most. I'm in the best possible emotional and physical shape, I'm positive, and I'm equipped to co-create a unique partnership with a special woman. I'm Bill and I look forward to meeting you!
