Despicable Me

I’m rotten. I almost labeled this, The Breaker-Upper, but I knew that you’d be 100x more likely to click on this blog if I called it, Despicable Me. But am I really that despicable? Of course, not (said in a Louis C.K. voice). Of course, not. (See clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O5h4enjrHw) Why would I even possibly consider myself despicable? Well,…

Tinder Date

I was on a date tonight off of Tinder. It was only my second Tinder date. “Date” may be too formal a word. It was more of a hang-out. Yes, there was some flirting beforehand. Nothing major, though. Let’s just say that a message I sent her using the audio-to-text feature created an interesting variation of “my…

The Journey from Loneliness to Aloneness

It was my birthday. I was spending time with my then girlfriend. We were walking the belt-line in Atlanta on a hot April afternoon. Who knows what went wrong, but she wasn’t happy. We stopped at a Starbucks so she could use the bathroom. I waited outside on one of those cushiony chairs. She came…

I am not talking to those of you reading this who are already married or in long-term committed relationships. There’s no hope for you. I’m talking to those of you…

Compersion: The Joy that Keeps on Giving

Some call it the “antidote to jealousy.” It’s a word that has been coined via the poly/non-monogamous world to mean the joy you experience seeing your partner in joy because of another romantic relationship. I’d like to broaden this definition (while we’re already creating new terms, right?) to mean the joy that you experience when your…

Sex: The Bastard Child of Eros

Sex is cheap. I said it. And, I’ll say it again: Sex. Is. Cheap. We see so many images of the feminine EVERYWHERE. Magazines. Commercials. Holiday parties… And it’s all cheap cheap cheap. Such a cheap imitation. Of what, you ask? Eros. I used to see women walking around in their form-fitting clothing. It led…
