How I Became an Emotionally Closed-Off Man

  I forgot that I had my own “me, too” story. And that’s quite telling.   I was in junior high school. I was young for my age, and short and scrawny. Not an auspicious beginning to an otherwise already difficult period for most young people. I was in “P.E.” class–which was coed. We were all in…

Maybe

  I told you it was about freedom, but that’s only half the story.   Maybe it’s not that you’ll smother me or take my freedom; but that in submitting to your love,  I’ll be annihilated.   Maybe the me you’ll slay isn’t the real me,  but the imposter posing as me. Maybe.   www.alexobed.com…

Real Talk 4 Men Dating Women

  You’re dating someone you like. You can tell she’s into you. You’re into her, too. But you still have a few women that you’ve been working on the side. To be fair: you knew these women before you met her. So… you’re not really doing anything wrong by talking to them now. And it’s just…
