The Young and the Restless

The Young and the Restless

Why are older people more sedentary than younger people?  I’m not talking about 70 versus 10.  I’m talking about 20 versus 10, and 30 versus 20, and 40 versus 30 and so on ad infinitum. As we get older, we become more contemplative, we become quieter, we slow down in every possible manifestation of the […]

26 Tips to Pick up a Girl

26 Tips to Pick up a Girl

Don’t use cheezy lines, they don’t work.  The only good line is “Hi.”  Whether it’s in the form of “Hi… I noticed you and wanted to introduce myself” or “Hi, I’m (generic name)” it is the most sincere introduction that conveys interest. There is no “pick-up artist” or “player” or man out there who knows […]

Taking Creativity from Behind

Taking Creativity from Behind

There is, of course, a famous stereotype about swishy gay men in design, fashion, film, music, and many other creative endeavors.  And, unbeknownst to mainstream America, many people in those industries are out to their local communities, but not to the world at-large.  For the record, I support them in whatever lifestyle they choose, no […]

Relationship Routes

Relationship Routes

Getting from Mars to Venus and Back Imagine this situation with me at Kung-Fu movie fight pace: Dude and Chick in Bar. Dude says, “Hey my name is Dude, can I buy you a drink?” Above him is a thought bubble… with one of the following: “She’s hot.” “I’m drunk… maybe I can take her […]

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 […]

Sometimes, you have to make war to make love

Sometimes, you have to make war to make love

Ladies, we know you hate war and love peace. You talk about it all the time, in both macro-scale and micro-scale. A week doesn’t go by where I don’t hear a woman (or a man who might as well be a woman) say something on the theme of ‘There’s no such thing as a good […]

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 […]

Master of the Moment

Master of the Moment

The Craft and Importance of Being Present  It seems apropos that “I” is the 10th most commonly used word in the English language and “you” is 18th most commonly used word in the English language.  This is a self-centric world.  “Time” is the most commonly used noun, most likely because everyone is egotistically looking 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 […]

Classic Cheer

Classic Cheer

Cheer!   Simple jubilation, what I like to call Cheer!  Cheeseburger and Beer.   (If you just started singing, humming, or even thinking of Jimmy Buffet’s Cheeseburger in Paradise – stop, now, you’re embarrassing yourself).   Depending on who you are, you hear cheeseburger and beer, and different things come to mind.  If you’re at all […]

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 […]

Dress 3 Drinks In

Dress 3 Drinks In

It’s Friday night and you are getting ready to go out.  You want to feel sexy, look hot, and be beautified.  You open the closet door secretly hoping it will suck you in, spin you around, and spit you out looking gorgeous. Then you get a glance of yourself in the full-length mirror and, back […]

MILF and proud of it!  Proud of it? Proud of it!

MILF and proud of it! Proud of it? Proud of it!

1999 what a historic year…well, for me at least, maybe not in mainstream history. Michael Jordan announced his retirement from the Chicago Bulls (for the 2nd and final time).  Pro wrestler Jesse Ventura was sworn in as the Governor of Minnesota (the WWF may better prepare you for politics than Georgetown, Oxford, and Yale). President […]

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 […]
