Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I've done a fair amount of personal growth work, which has
helped me evolve and become a better man. I know what it takes to
create a passionate partnership that's also a best friendship and
I'm not jaded from past marriage or previous relationship issues.
My attitude about dating is fresh and optimistic, and I consider
each woman I meet to be a unique individual.
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. Creating
intimacy over time is something I'm good at. Please be open to that
as the best love grows over time. I look at our first date as an
open door to our second and that is all. No fantasies. Just living
in the here and now. Are you able to do the same?
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
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
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.
My true passion is helping to empower others from a place of love.
It would be nice to have a partner with the courage to effect that
mission together. I'm Bill and I look forward to meeting you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My passion is education. A few years back I left business to teach
high school and subsequently to gain a masters degree in education
with the intention of working in student affairs at a college. A
challenging education job market (Who moved my cheese??) led me
back to my first career in real estate site selection. Currently I
develop new stores for Safeway Corp. which I enjoy. The bud in my
heart will lead me back to education in the future. I just know it!
I also like volunteering for kids related organizations.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creating a safe and compassionate environment. Listening and
supporting others. Having fun and laughing! Figuring things out;
Sex - can I say that here? :-) Getting there, fixing things,
relaxing, singing - not really...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have grown through counseling and/or personal growth. Most
important is that you are able to self-reflect on the way you live
your life. You should also be comfortable both giving and receiving
love. I want more than just a companion. Supporting each in a
loving way is essential to the relationship I will co-create with a
partner. You must be able to do your part. We are all work in
progress and I am most attracted to those who love to experience
real emotion in the moment. Please be down to earth and not looking
to know if "he's the one" on the first date. The relationship I
would like will develop over time with a solid base. At the same
time we will have fun while we travel this road of emotional
closeness and even laugh at ourselves.. :-)
