Red Flags

Red Flags

              It is really easy to fall for the wrong person these days.  People market themselves as if they are spawns of perfection.  Eventually, the perfection turns into normality and normality turns into mediocrity and mediocrity turns into inferiority and inferiority turns into just down right crazy.  Don’t get […]

Social Assassin

Social Assassin

Society is a dangerous and treacherous place… Your social network is an even more dangerous and treacherous place… It all starts with infiltration.  Never has the phrase “keep your friends close, but your enemies closer” rang truer to a person, than to a social assassin.  A social assassin is someone who attempts to damage a […]

Friend Collector

Friend Collector

There are people who would outwardly and proudly diminish a term, removing all of its substance and attainment, to satisfy some inner quest of personal fulfillment, despite their paradox of self-satisfaction and reality…. Friend Collector [frend] [kuh-lek-ter] noun: A person who adds enormous amounts of people on their social networking pages just for the sake […]

Timing

Timing

Timing is everything… No really, timing is everything… Timing is the ultimate condition that determines outcomes in every facet of our lives.  From the love we share or lose, to the job we have or don’t have, to the glory we celebrate or the failure we suffer, timing is the force behind it all.  Every […]

You Can’t Buy Fun

You Can’t Buy Fun

Disclaimer: The message below was written strictly as a reaction to multiple observances of particular social tendencies in and around New York City’s nightlife scene.  The message is intended for the people who try to buy fun which other people have created freely.  Buying the appearance of having fun and ACTUALLY being or having fun […]

Thanks for Something

Thanks for Something

We like to tell ourselves that we have become better, stronger people after a failed relationship and that the time spent in that failed relationship was responsible for teaching us some inspired piece of admonition used to hopingly contrive a piece of divine clarity for our future hookups.  I am here to tell you that […]

Dating Down

Dating Down

Dating down will “never” work.  The love between two people is more secure when both people are of equal status or each person has a superior life trait (beauty, power, money, intelligence, charisma, kindness, etc.) that is equal in dominance.  Dating someone below you or above you isn’t recommended for serious, long term relationships.  Beauty […]

Googled Unearthed

Googled Unearthed

                  The world is saturated with “know-it-alls.”  There is nothing worse than listening to some shit-brained wannabe elitist with zero life experience talk about how he/she can do it better than someone else.  There was once a time when teachers and professors commanded respect because it was […]

What to get your bitch for Christmas

What to get your bitch for Christmas

The holiday season brings out our altruistic nature, putting aside feuds and misunderstandings for the fellowship of family, rejuvenation of romantic relationships, and the exploration of newly acquired love consummated under yuletide frondescence suspended from above.  It is the time of the year when we curb our wants and look to generosity, delivering joy to […]

Not Entitled

Not Entitled

Dear America, You are not entitled to what I earn.  You are not entitled to a home or a car.  You are not entitled to healthcare.  You are not entitled to education and certification.  You are not entitled to food and clothing.  You are not entitled to land and ownership.  You are not entitled to […]

Dating Momentum

Dating Momentum

Momentum is defined by science and mathematics as force or speed of movement, or (P=M*V) where momentum equals “P,” mass equals “M,” and velocity (the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object) equals “V.”  I couldn’t relate any of this to dating except that mass equals momentum divided […]

Why I don’t call

Why I don’t call

It’s awkward when women confuse friendly banter (originating from an innocent night out) with some sort of runic intention that forces me to transcend from a man who is enjoying his environment, to a man purged of his moxie, laden with the indifference of wanting to continue the casualness of the connection beyond the moment […]

Elements of Happiness

Elements of Happiness

  I am happy… If that statement doesn’t make you jealous, provoke curiosity or arouse distant memories of fun times with friends and family, then you should stop reading now. With that said, happiness is not guaranteed. Happiness isn’t guaranteed but we can pursue the hell out of it. With all the circumstances we can’t […]

Stuck

Stuck

  Feeling stuck is life’s ultimate compulsion; forcing us to live a life that knowingly makes us barely satisfied or knowingly makes us unhappy, inevitably challenging our emotions to the brink of rash decisions or abject moral imprisonment. Feeling stuck is not a good thing, especially in relationships. Any positive connotation one may try to […]

Claim Me, If You Can!

Claim Me, If You Can!

Women of the world, I am on to you.  I was once jejune, believing that the women I date foist flighty comments of possession around other girls because they were trying to give me subtle hints of affection.  Phrases like “Remember last week when we were watching that movie together,” or “Are you going to […]

The Rule of Threeve

The Rule of Threeve

So… when is it time to give up the pursuit of someone you are interested in? The serial killer in me says never; always go after what makes you happy, no matter how long, whom or what may stand in your way. The pragmatic romantic in me says after a certain number of failures, it […]

The Idea of Things

The Idea of Things

People love to dream. People love to reminisce. People love to exaggerate. The world is full of people who talk about who they are, who they were, who they want to be and most importantly (uncomfortably) who they will be.  This self-perception cascades through all facets of life consuming commentary on one’s occupation, academic achievements, […]

Two Wrongs, Make a Right?

Two Wrongs, Make a Right?

Everyone knows someone in their life who is fucked up beyond repair. All we can do is wish that one day this person will normalize by divine intervention and someday offer society positive reparations for their destructive path. Afflatus aside, it is our job to present a more stable rendition of life. Unfortunately, but not […]

PooF!

PooF!

              Being in love is a beautiful thing. Sharing time and space with another person is the ultimate gesture of faith. Most of us hope that this piece of our existence will last in this life and beyond.  However, what appears to be love isn’t always the reality. ******PooF******             There is not a better […]

Eye Contact

Eye Contact

…Hello Ladies; look at me, now look down, now back to me, now think about the one you are with, now back to me. Look inward; back up, where are you? You are in the gym looking at me; stop that. You’re now at a bar with the man your man could be, if you […]
