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…

The New Sexy: Upgraded (2017)

  Here’s The New Sexy: Upgraded. (If you’re coming from my old site please scroll down to where it says, new.) Until recently, when a woman over 40 checked out my dating profile, the first thought that automatically popped up in my head was too old–and then I quickly moved on to the next profile.

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.

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….

I Surrender

  Whence last we met, I was talking about my messy, non-linear life. About the value of not waiting–but being in the thick of things. Surrendering completely to what is, and dropping the fear that if we don’t prepare for after, well, we won’t be prepared and our lives will go to shit. Most of us don’t live like…

Tough Conversations You Won’t Have with Your Partner

I understand why you don’t want to talk about it. I mean, your relationship is going “fine.” It’s been the best relationship you’ve had in a long time–maybe forever. Why rock the boat? But… if you really get quiet, you can hear the echo of doubt lingering deep in the unexplored caverns of your subconscious:…
