Solotopia was launched on May 11, 2000.
Solotopia’s mission is to help singles reach their potential as individuals and in their ability to have a fulfilling solo lifestyle, great dating experiences, or a lasting relationship.
Solotopia’s social mission is to lead a change in awareness that establishes singles in a more positive, productive, and prominent place in the world community.

The name Solotopia was derived from the words “solo” (*A performance or accomplishment by a single individual.) and “utopia” (*A condition, place, or situation of perfection.). *Oxford American Dictionary
The word “singles” is infected with many negative connotations. Therefore, the word “solo” was selected to represent the “singles” identification in the name. The word “utopia” was chosen because its definition describes the spirit and ambition of Solotopia.
Everyone is welcome at Solotopia. All never married, divorced, and widowed single adults of all ages, occupations, ethnicities, nationalities, and religions.
Singles Lifestyle Experience
I began learning about the needs of singles as I built and led a unique, highly successful non-profit singles organization. I refined my knowledge about singles and relationships as I researched and wrote my books.
In preparation for my books, singles club, and websites, I conducted extensive formal research on mate selection criteria around the world and throughout history. This study also looked at what men and women want in a partner and the similarities and differences in their respective criteria.
The combined experience of all of the above, along with the knowledge I acquired from reading hundreds of personal development books led to the creation of the ideas presented in my books, articles, and websites. The result is concepts based on established analytical techniques, proven human performance principles, and just plain common sense.
I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to date over 200 women (lifetime conservative estimate) and have many magnificent romantic relationships. I’ve also had many painful breakups. I don’t share this information to brag, but rather to offer it as credentials, if you will, of my experience on both sides of this issue. In fact, it was the painful breakups that inspired me to look for solutions and want to help others through my books and websites.
As for having the skills to date a lot of women, it certainly hasn’t always been that way for me. During my early years, I was so shy that I rarely spoke to anyone, especially females. I share how I overcame my shyness and mastered the art of dating in many articles on this site.
Although I have been single my entire life, I have been close to marriage several times. Today I am comfortably single.
I could give you a dazzling list of academic, career, and personal achievements and other boring information about myself. But what would it matter to you.
Like me, you’ve probably known many people with impressive degrees, licensing credentials, and other accomplishments who didn’t have a bit of common sense or true compassion for others. Yet they were in a field that demanded it to be successful.
Let me tell what I am not. I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, physician, or professor. I am not a leader of any religious or political group. And I am not closed-minded, bigoted, or elitist.
You will discover more than you probably want to know about my background and relationship history and whether it’s true in my articles by default. What’s important is that you get some valuable and motivating information and tools that you can use to improve the quality of your life right away!
