This time of year has historically been a difficult challenge, especially in terms of love and relationships. Over the course of my dating life the transition from fall to winter has not only been seasonal but also deeply emotional for me. I often try to block out the reasons why this occurs. Like I won’t [...]
I was recently asked by a reader of my blog: How or what did you read or do in order to initially get it together!?
I met my karma head on. After all, it was mine - I earned it, I deserved it, I knew it was coming and so I braced and prepared myself for the world [...]
As soon as I answered the phone, her question went something like this, “So I was just another one of your mistresses too?
She had just finished reading one of my blogs, A Year Later Continued, and the incident I described on the football field resonated strongly with her because there was a similar one that occurred a few years prior [...]
The thing is, I have no problem being judged. That’s something everyone deals with every day. The acceptance of judgment comes with age and experience.

The reason for this is simple. Waiting until the day after V-Day is too obvious and the last thing they want her to think is that [...]
Woman cheats on girlfriend. Woman gets caught. She survives a couple months of hell and after a year, maybe, she’ll eventually overcome. If she holds on and proves she’s truly sorry then the incident goes to show that the wake up call was alarming. There’s nothing standing in her way except her girlfriend and all [...]
I sent her an e-mail that Monday. It was sappy and ridiculous and nevertheless I asked for a reply and she assured me she would send one. I didn’t get a reply all week until Friday rolled around and still nothing until the phone call later that day. She wanted to discuss something. By that [...]
