Top Stories

Eight Years of Toxic Love – It’s the most read story on the site, and for a good reason.

From the Dirt – Some people come from humble beginnings, I come from the dirt. 

The Sponsor – Its a free world, you can do what you please but choices have consequences. 

Rich and Dysfunctional – Money makes the world go round but sometimes it just makes our heads go round. 

Chips Funga – It has very little to do with fries, maybe the take-away part.

The Girls I’ve Loved Before – A few life lessons from the few (very few) women I’ve rubbed shoulders with. 

Forever After – You might be in the wrong place if you think this has a Disney like ending.

Lust Not Love – The heart wants what the heart wants and so does the flesh.

The Bachelor Pad – I take you in and show you how I live. Try not to step on the carpet, I just vacuumed. 

A Man and His Tears – Yes, men do cry and it’s beautiful.

Ripe For Marriage – Oh, did I mention I’m a bachelor. My parents are always prattling about marriage. Have a seat. Listen.

35 Years Apart – My mom is a sage. I’m always learning from her well of wisdom. 

To My Little Sister – A letter to my sister. It brought the waterworks.
