The other day I was asked, “David, have you ever written about how guys handle break-ups?” My answer of course, was ‘no.’ Truth be told, I’ve never written about how anyone deals with a break-up, at least not as a specific topic. But why not? I’ve had my share of dating/relationship experiences, and while there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach, this is my unofficial list of my methods for ‘getting over it.’

I’m flattered. No really, I am. Ever since I started writing more frequently about dating and lending my advice/insight through this blog, I’ve had numerous people – men and women – come to me with their stories. Some looking for advice; some looking for someone to listen to them. For that, I’m grateful. But somewhere along the line, I think I may have misled some of you. I, my friends, am not an expert. I […]

My Confession


In the face of any strong emotion – good or bad – my reflex has always been to instantly drain myself of my words and thoughts. It’s my therapy, or at least the earliest attempt at it. And that’s why I’m writing tonight. I’ve lived a life mostly free of loss; the closest I’d come is the pain of a break-up. Until tonight. My best friend’s father, a figure instrumental in the foundational faith and second […]

Death’s Sting

1. Go on a date with someone and put your phone away the entire time. 2. When you get someone’s number, call them. 3. When you make plans with someone, follow through. 4. Don’t Facebook/Instagram/Google stalk the person you just met – until after your first date. 5. Don’t be too proud to tell someone exactly how you feel – good or bad. 6. When you are on the phone, don’t text, type or watch […]

10 Resolutions for Modern Daters


The New York Times posted a semi-provocative article today titled ‘The End of Courtship?’ by Alex Williams. Here’s an excerpt: Raised in the age of so-called “hookup culture,” millennials — who are reaching an age where they are starting to think about settling down — are subverting the rules of courtship. Instead of dinner-and-a-movie, which seems as obsolete as a rotary phone, they rendezvous over phone texts, Facebook posts, instant messages and other “non-dates” that are leaving […]

What Does ‘Courtship’ Mean to Gen Y?

I’ll describe Dayana and Ricardo in a bit more detail in just a minute, but let me first say this – when this bi-racial couple procreates, the respective fruit of their loins is going to be a head-turner. And possibly an NBA player. They’re an exotic duo, to be sure. Living in the Rush and Division section of Chicago, Dayana and Ricardo hail from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Mendoza, Argentina, respectively. Dayana’s roots were firmly entrenched […]

The bread and butter of iamdavidberry.com, once upon a time, was the verbal diarrhea that came from my numerous rants. I like to think that I’ve matured beyond most of the nonsense of those days, but the truth is I’ve just learned to filter more of it. That’s not mature of me; it’s dishonest. So today, I’m telling the truth. In no particular order…
