Sowing My Oats

William explains the evolution of a playboy and where he is with Fahara now.

When you aren't born into money, having it can be quite problematic. For me, having money aroused feelings of uncertainty about who I was and why people chose to include me in their lives. Being wealthy in my early 30s certainly has its pluses: girls are easy and plentiful, invitations to parties and events are expected, but what about love? Love is a component of my life that I took for granted for years. I had the most amazing girl for almost five years and she walked. There was no putting Humpty Dumpty back together again -- she had made up her mind. What was her reasoning? One morning we woke up and I leaned over and said to her, "Let's get an agent and buy a house together." I knew I was neglecting her, and I thought this might be a good solution. She replied that she didn't love me and didn't want to be with me any longer. She explained that I didn't show her that I loved her, and, in turn, we became roommates, not lovers. I didn't fight for her. I just let go. I was devastated. When I lost my love, Christine, I was at a crossroads in my life -- something of an early mid-life crisis.

After having two failed long-term relationships in the past, I thought that I needed to go out and sow my oats and so I did. I did the online dating thing for over a year and took advantage of girls. I made rules: first date equals cocktails, second equals dinner, and third is dinner and sex. Anyone who didn't conform to that was never called again. For over a year, I manipulated women into sleeping with me, it was easy. I just told them what they wanted to hear and we were off to the bedroom; theirs, never mine (which made leaving after sex easier). Business was good.

After a year of not bringing girls home to meet the folks, I caved to pressure from friends and family who were disgusted by the way I was living my life. Karma is a mother, and they warned my actions would eventually backfire on me. I therefore came to Patti for guidance. I wasn't even open to possibility that I could love again, but I wanted to see if it was what I heard about her service was indeed true. It is. She really does see past the facade and hone in on what her clients need. I needed a woman who loved me for me, not the money, not the career. Sound trite? It's the truth. Her stable of girls is as diverse as they are amazing; enter Fahara. Since the show, she and I have continued to date. We travel together, dine at amazing restaurants, and have "shared" some interesting experiences. Though I'm not clairvoyant, I imagine that we will continue to enjoy each other's company, and for that I have Patti Stanger and The Millionaire Matchmaker to thank.

What you didn't see watching my episode is that I poured out my heart to Patti and Dr. Pat. I explained how I took Christine for granted and that I chose to focus on my own financial turmoil and once home, couldn't come to appreciate what I had: an amazingly beautiful, warm and giving fiancee who loved me unconditionally.

You the viewer will make your own determination on what you saw and who really is out for love -- who was genuine and who was as false as water. Throughout the making and filming of the show, I vacillated back and forth between who I wanted to be. In my casting tape, I tried my best to be my own hype man. During my background interview I tried to showcase my company, Commercial Finance and Leasing Bank of Cardiff (www.cflbc.com). At the mixer, I lost my confidence in Patti and decided to make the event entertaining (I said things to Patti's girls which would shock and awe a stripper; maybe even make them cry). In the end, I hope you'll remember that when it came to meeting Fahara, I cut the crap and treated her like a woman deserves to be treated. Had I done that with my ex, we might still be together. Guess, I'm learning.

Cheers!

Making a Match: Larry Birkhead & Melyssa Ford

Find out what Patti really thought about sexy Melyssa and shy guy Larry's dates.

This week I got to meet one of the sweetest guys in the world, Larry Birkhead: the boy from Kentucky. There’s just one problem: he hasn’t dated in like a decade. This guy needs practice. I mean, he’s drop dead gorgeous and he can’t do anything. I can send him out into the world and the world of a mixer and a date, but he could botch it. Candace and I will give him some mock dating experience and I will pick his date for him. The first time he’ll meet her will be when they go out for the first time. No chance for him to get nervous, and more importantly, no time for the girl to look him up and see who he is. He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

My other client this week is drop dead gorgeous: Melyssa Ford. She’s the star of Blood Sweat and Heels, she used to be in a bunch of music videos, and she was nicknamed the "Video Vixen". I know it’s hard to turn off the beauty and the booty, so I bring her to doctor Pat Allen. Doctor Pat and I have worked together for years. Doctor Pat told Melyssa that she should be leading with her brain. Melyssa can be sexy no matter what: but can she look for the guy who’s interested in what she has to say, not what she looks like?

So I’m doing something new: I get Candace and David to bring a bunch of good appropriate men and women to the mixer. I just want a handful of guys for Melyssa, and a handful of girls for Larry. I introduce the best ones to Melyssa for her to choose from, and I’ll pick the best girl to set up Larry with on a blind date. Melyssa picks Jay. Jay listened to the conversation, and remembered Melyssa liked bowling and cigars. And he took her on a perfect, fun, get-to-know-you date. Meanwhile, Larry met up with his date at Universal Studios. He had a private tour set up, and he and Michelle met for the first time. They had a blast. She knew who he was, but they got past that and they got to know each other. And he took her for dinner and even got a kiss at the end.

So in the end, I’m so happy that both Larry and Melyssa got to learn something. Larry got to know he can be himself and there’s no need to be shy, and she knows (Melyssa) that there are guys out there who can look past her booty and see the great girl underneath.
