My self-summary
I am looking for a best pal, confidant, and lover. Let's see where we go. Right now my life is better than ever and one more addition would make it even more wonderful. An equal partnership and open communication is essential. The aura of a lover is a wonder; some spice is nice.

I value: people, honesty, simplicity, sharing, authenticity, and humor. To borrow a line from a woman, I am not a "narcissistic boy playing important." I am not pretentious. I am not materialistic. OK, I do have a very cool Subaru Forester with 165 ponies rumbling under the hood.

I am kind and empathic; polite and gentle but not overly genteel; sometimes a bit of a rough cut. Being an older kid is OK. Although I can be a little quirky (goofy?) I am also reasonably well grounded. I am monogamous and do not play games. Honesty is essential so I try to be very transparent. Ask me anything and you will get an honest reply. I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve.

I: have season tickets to the SF Symphony; would like to go to Europe and visit Prague, Paris, the Dordogne (an old friend has a B and B there), and Italy (a colleague has a place in Umbria); love Hawaii and, in particular, the Big Island, which is sort of my spiritual home - the other islands are great too; would like to find a kayaking partner (nice, but not essential); rarely watch my TV....It would be nice to add the desires of a partner to the list. Now that is a herd of "I" statements.

Finally, my ongoing life project is to take life as it comes and not take myself too seriously: the world does not revolve around me. No matter what happens I will be OK.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a high school history teacher and my job is (usually) a delight. I exercise moderately and try to get to the gym 2-3 times a week. I have a small circle of friends and colleagues that I prize. I try to help the world to get pointed in a better direction in some small way.
I’m really good at
A bunch of things, I think.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am outgoing most of the time and I am loyal to my friends. I am polite and generous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love classical music. Dvorak is my favorite composer. Beethoven was the best although it would be a tad difficult to think of Brahms, Mozart, Bach and others as chopped liver. Jazz, oldies rock, Motown, and the blues are nice too.

I would like to get to more movies than I do right now - this usually happens when I have a girlfriend. My taste varies. 'Joyeux Noel' is the movie I see most often because I show it to my World History students every year just before holiday break; it's about French, German, and Scottish soldiers fraternizing at Christmas on the western front in 1914.

Chinese, Italian, and Mexican restaurants with funky atmosphere are great.
The six things I could never do without
Love & joy
My friends & colleagues
Humor
Classical music
Hawaii
affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'd have to spend too much time thinking about what to write. I'll work on this one. Bullwinkle rocks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing or going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been a friend of Bill W. since 5/22/1999.

My info seems attractive to you or you want to know more about me; however, conservatives, arrogant people, selfish people, and mean people need not apply. Honesty is absolutely crucial.
