free. at. last.

  I didn’t know that I wasn’t free. Not until tonight. It’s 11 months to the day since my breakup with M, my longest, most significant romantic relationship of my life. In a moment of not-all-togetherness, I texted her. I am heartbroken, I told her. And, no, this is not me asking for you back. I…

A Girlfriend on Each Continent

If I could truly have the life that I wanted, this is what I’d create: a girlfriend on each continent. Obviously, that means I’d live the life of a traveler. Ok, maybe not Antarctica.

My Way Out

Yesterday, I’m lying in bed. Thinking. My life has been messy lately, starting with my inability to sleep with any semblance of normality. Couple that with not having enough money, needing it, not being able to find a job… and it led me to a thought: Wow. It sure would be nice to go crazy. …

My Freshly-Sewn Stitches: HEALED

  It wasn’t long ago that I wrote another blog post entitled, My Freshly-Sewn Stitches. You can read it here: https://alexobedblog.wordpress.com/2015/12/20/coping-is-doping/ It’s about an unrequited love story between myself and a woman that I had met online. I ended the post talking about how getting back in touch with her was akin to reliving the past pain of having…

Why Broke Men Shouldn’t Date

  This post is for the guys–the broke guys. (You know who you are.) I confess.  I’ve been guilty, myself. As a “creative” type who grew up believing that society should support ME to support IT, I was never very motivated by money. Give me time. Give me freedom. Those were my mantras. Well, that was…
