William

57 | San Francisco, California

Most men live lives of quiet desperation, but I don't care to be one of them...

He sees the big picture and can easily take the broad, long view of almost any topic. And he also has an adventurous side.

He enjoys new ideas and novel experiences which he wants to share with an enthusiastic partner.

He particularly enjoys people who like to play with abstract theories and ideas, provide insights, search for symbolic meanings in life and relationships and have a broad interest in the world.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • I am very sensitive to people's feelings and needs
  • I am intrigued by rules and patterns that govern systems
  • I feel emotions more deeply than most people

in his own words...

Is it just me or do you feel a mixed bag of trepidation and excitation while you are putting yourself out there? Its even harder here than it is approaching a stranger on the bus or in a cafe... you have no eye contact, no signals to respond to for cues on whether the other person is interested or not. Plus, you have to dig up photos of yourself that, often don't show your "good side". I used to think I didn't have one, but enough have told me different and I stopped worrying about it. So, I really want to hear more about you, but you're going to need some information first to get your attention, right? Dad was a Marine, so I was raised to meet you with an even gaze and a firm handshake, but he was a journalist and had a lot of "arty" friends (aka HIppies). Mom was, well, a MOM and you may know what that means. Put the best (and some of the worst) together and shake it up and here I am. They were married until this year when Dad died, and so I believe in the power of love. I like the idea of marriage, but never did because I never want to be divorced. People mistake me for someone else a lot, like someone famous. Most recently it was Roger Sterling (lol).. it used to be Bruce Springsteen a lot... even Lance Armstrong (with a much shorter haircut). I am flattered, but I am not famous and maybe a bit ordinary though I aspire to greatness. I don't mind talking about me, but as I said, I am looking for you to tell me (a lot) more about yourself. Some of your heart's desires, and maybe a few dirty secrets. I like it if you can listen as well as tell, so perhaps you won't mind learning more about what I am really all about. Maybe you can see the truth that I can't even see. You can tell me about that, too, just go easy on me the first time out. We can go from there. Everything you will read about me here is TRUE (some of truth has been modified to fit your screen) to a greater or lesser degree. My brother always reminds me that the truth shouldn't get in th
