My Yoga Teacher Flirt Fail—Lessons Learned

  So, I’ve had a crush on my yoga teacher for some time now. I did an unlimited month of yoga and was often at her class (purely coincidentally). But my month ended, and we all know my track record for committing to anything for too long. So, I’ve been cheating on yoga with CrossFit…

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…

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.

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,…

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…
