My dog Roger and I gave free love advice to lonely and single people yesterday
The sun was out in Montreal and the temperature was bearable. It felt like spring. I like spring. Everything starts to thaw, including people’s desire to connect. Exciting.
I packed up my recording gear and my free love advice sign and headed up the mountain. The goal was to give free love advice to people at the top of Mont Royal. I had no idea I’d run into so many lonely and single people.Continue reading
He told me the best thing I could do was to forgive her. The sooner I can forgive, the better I’ll feel.
I wasn’t ready to forgive her. Everything was too raw and it hurt too much. Continue reading
Single again, my girlfriend at the time and I had just broken up. It happened on my birthday over fancy pizza in Oakland. Some birthdays you remember, some you forget. I won’t forget this one.
I’m not sure what happened. She wanted to be in love. I loved her, but I wasn’t in love anymore. It was sad. I still love her.
Both my most recent ex girlfriends had dogs.
I’d dog sit occasionally, and loved having them around. There’s nothing quite like a dog greeting you at the door after you get home. It’s nice to always have someone to go on a walk with, and someone to cuddle with at night.
Also, I was lonely, single, and sad.Continue reading
I’ve been there more times than I care to admit.
OK, it’s five. Five times.
Every woman I’ve been in a relationship with (5 so far), I fantasize about our future together. No matter how much I try to stay grounded in reality, when I first meet a new partner, my mind goes to the same place.
But I’m not alone in engaging in Fantasyland talk. Most of the time, my partner joins in. After 1 month of dating my crazy ex, we already had a short list of baby names picked out. We’d have two girls.
We’re not dating anymore, obviously, but if you’re curious, here’s the short list: Scout, Kirby, Lennon, Chase, Ariadne, and Maisy. That’s right, we’d be those kinds of people.
And I’m probably not the only one.
I fucking wish we were taking crazy pills. Then we could all stop and realize that it was just a nightmare.
Go back to bed sweetie everything’s gonna be alright.
But it’s not a crazy, horrible, fucked up nightmare. It’s crazy, horrible, fucked up reality.
Last week I made the decision to write about Love on Mondays. But today I just want to crawl back to bed and forget about it all. Unfortunately shutting it out won’t make it go away. We need to choose love.Continue reading
It’s no secret I want love
After all I didn’t move to Montreal for the bagels. I came here for love. And the cheap rent. And the bagels. I really love these bagels.
I’ve been single a few years now. I was supposed to be married with two kids by the age of thirty. Things don’t always work out the way you’d planned them, do they?Continue reading
Or rather, I don’t think I’ve been cheated on before. It’s not something people admit doing. It’s usually something you get caught doing. I’ve never caught anyone cheating on me. Then again, I never really looked for it. I assume good intentions. And I date good people.
I was completely pathetic after the breakup. Still pinning for her. She wanted nothing to do with me. “Don’t contact me for 6 months” she said.
I flew to Europe to get away. Spending time abroad would make things better. It didn’t. I was hopelessly lovesick. Co-dependant. I couldn’t enjoy my time. I didn’t sleep well. “We’re gonna get back together” I thought. Continue reading
You know you’ve been wanting to so here’s your chance. I’m giving you the go ahead to break up with your partner. Do it!Continue reading
I didn’t drag the sign all the way from San Francisco to Japan to not use it. After a week of making excuses for not putting it up I set out determined to give free love advice to Japanese people, or whoever happened to walk by.Continue reading
