Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am looking for a best pal and friend which may ultimately lead to
a long term relationship; but, a relationship doesn't get to be
long term until after it has been short term - keep expectations
real. Right now my life is better than ever and one more addition
would make it even more wonderful. Let's aim for an equal
partnership with unconditional love and trust where judgement is
absent. The aura of a lover is a wonder. Some spice is nice.
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 am smarter than the average bear but I also realize there are
many smarter bears out there; besides, smart people or bears do not
amount to much without a heart and soul.
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: have season tickets to the SF Symphony; would like to go to
Europe and visit Prague, Paris, Italy (a colleague has a place in
Umbria), and the Dordogne (an old friend has a B and B there); 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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A bunch of things, I think.

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
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love & joy
My friends & colleagues
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have been a friend of Bill W. since 5/22/1999.
