The Female Fixer

Male and female genders have many differences. One difference, which stands out the most in reference to dating, is the type of condition a potential ‘significant other’ maybe in when the relationship rituals begin. For men, it is quite simple (Complete Package). The prettiest, smartest, most athletic, most compatible, most talented best at sex and […]

Love + X = Everything

Since Patty Smyth and Don Henley informed me in 1992, I’ve known that “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough.”  Knowing and understanding, however, are two very different things. It’s taken me well into my 30’s to understand why love, in fact, does not conquer all, but figuring out what love needed to be enough has been […]

Relationship Visualization

The mind is powerful.   In a world consumed by imagery, media and sensationalism constantly bombarding our thoughts and playing to our desires and weaknesses, the mind is powerful. Every success and accomplishment is predicated from an absolute choice originating from the mind. You can’t achieve success without first ‘believing’ you can succeed. Success not […]


…The mind lingers. Staring at delusional plains, not related to the scene at hand. The mind lingers. Contemplating again and again, the purpose of allowing subjugation to occur by someone’s hand. The mind lingers. Maybe this time will be different, maybe this time we can withstand. The mind lingers. No, it’s the same old story […]

Damn You Disney!

All it takes is turning on the radio, listening to the news, or simply talking to your friends to understand that Disney movies have set us up for failure.  The beautiful princess, the handsome prince, the obvious villain, the perfect love story, and the triumphant win of good over evil all set to a soundtrack […]

Chrisanomican Chapter 2 “Tempered Love”

Chrisanomican: Burden to Bear   More than three decades I have walked this earth and for more than three decades I haven’t felt further away from understanding this world, the people in it, than I do now. We (the world) want everything, but in the same breathe we (the world) want nothing. Promises and oaths […]

Cycle of Suck

There is absolutely nothing worse than being lied to, cheated on or betrayed by someone who you have invested all your trust and emotional faith into. It should never be expected or accepted that these vices dwell at the core of human nature. These traits are learned. They do not come with the package of […]

Socialtific Method

Do you like science, but hate thinking? Do you want to fall in love, but always fall for the wrong person over and over? If this describes you, then I have a solution (method) for you!  Science is the study of systematized knowledge of everything that is real. Love is the creation (or belief) in […]

Trophy Wife

Traditionally, a trophy is something that is taken in a war, hunt, or competition that serves as a token of victory, or a testament to valor or skill. Today, trophies (or awards) are mostly earned through competition: sports, academics, music, etc. No matter the definition, old or new, a trophy memorializes a moment in time […]

Marriage Trainers

How ironic is it to write an opinion article on a social trainer blog when you yourself are a subscriber.  Even more ironic is looking for advice on what’s socially acceptable for a single person when you are married.  I am betting there are those of you who are frequent subscribers of this blog that […]

Time Bomb

Tick….. Tick….. Boom! You feel it inside you: the ever-meddling desire to pick up and run, to escape the failed attempts of happiness, to remove yourself from tarnished bonds and empty promises, the constant feelings of disloyalty and despair. You feel it, yet you convince yourself that these relationships, those moments of utter disgrace against […]


Finding myself listening to Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” on my iPhone again.  Every time I listen to this damn song I have to stop what I am doing and focus on Johnny’s soulful sound.  Remembering Elaine’s “Desperado” boyfriend from Seinfeld!   I never intentionally play him, but every now and then Johnny pops up randomly on shuffle […]

Super Happy Fun Box

All men have it, a minimum expectation for any relationship or future relationship in reference to sex, or a man’s Super Happy Fun Box (SHFB). Sure, there are many factors that play into a long and healthy relationship, but a man’s sexual encounters will be at the forefront of his comparisons of you and the […]

How to Keep Your Man

Girls suck….And that is the first way to keep a man; and I am not talking about being atrocious human beings either.  This isn’t an article on how to get a man.  Most women are experts in the outward superficiality conjured up in obtaining what they want.  This article aims to explain to all of you (women) […]

Seriously? Serious Relationships

There are quite a few people who don’t know the proper precursors of claiming and maintaining a “serious” relationship.  When you label a relationship as “serious” and throw around words like love and marriage and soul mate and “happily ever after”, there are certain criteria that go along with claiming such titles and attributes.  Below […]

Love and Crazy

Love and Crazy go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly  It goes without saying that love makes us do crazy things. Think about it. Patsy Cline, Madonna, Beyoncé, and Queen all have songs about the crazy things love makes us feel and do. Sometimes a little bit of crazy can be good, while other times, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
