How to Get Off the Rollercoaster of Relationships

During the final months of my last relationship, I noticed that when I was unbelievably happy, she was almost never happy; and when she was in splendorous moods of joy, I was totally down and out. It’s like our cycles were inverted. And it was hell.  How did it get this way, I wondered. We started off so…

Perhaps You’re Not as Far as You Think

  I’ve been struggling lately. It’s my age-old nemesis of not having enough money. It’s a sad, boring story that has become my life: on auto-repeat. Insert yawn here. (And it was just made worse hearing a good friend tell me how his teenage son is making $2,000/mo., whilst in high school, with an online yard-cleaning…

The Woman Who Wasn’t Afraid of Punctuation

  I’ve always wanted to date a French woman. The accent… I can just stop there, right?   Well, today was my lucky day. Her hair was thick and wavy, and black, like fertile soil. With big, blue eyes and the long, elegant fingers of a pianist, or perhaps a cello player. It was a…

I would literally think, Why is she…

My Next “Relationship”

  Someone recently asked me, “Alex, you just got OUT of a relationship–why are you already thinking about your next one?” Because at THIS moment, I am VERY CLEAR on what I DO NOT WANT in a relationship. When we leave a relationship, there are things that weren’t working–obviously. Emotionally and time-wise, we are closest to that “knowing”…

How I got Blacklisted from Airbnb

  It hasn’t happened–yet–but if I were a betting man, and I am, I would surmise that it’s only a matter of time. Within two minutes of having this beautiful airbnb home in Tuscany, Italy to myself, it seems as if I might have destroyed a very heavy wooden-paneled blind system as I was trying to bring some sunlight…

You Can’t NOT Find True Love

  It’s a bold claim, I know. But I believe it, whole-heart-ed-ly. It comes with a catch, though. (Luckily, not a catch-22.) You have to really live your life. In other words, you have to be an individual. Single. Separate. Discrete. Independent. You’ve got to go on a journey that is yours and yours alone….
