Text messaging did an interesting thing to relationships in the early 2000s. It took a lot of the guess work – and terror – out of pre-dating conversation and strapped it with training wheels. But before that? In the good ole’ days – the ’90s – people actually had to dial the phone and – gasp – carry on a conversation in the midst of their dating journey. Sound awful? It was worse in the ’80s. Back […]

A Dummy’s Guide to Modern Dating & Texting Etiquette


In March 2012, a friend of mine suggested that I write about the confusion that many of us in the ‘modern’ world (whatever that means) will invariably face when it comes to dating. So at her request, I decided to create this post, called the ’10 Phases of Dating.’ Since then, I’ve been intrigued by the response I’ve gotten. It’s been overwhelming. Everyone, it seems – single or taken – loves to talk about dating. […]

I‘m 28 years old. And as an older, wiser version of David Berry, I get a kick out of reading the things that 22 year old David Berry used to write. He was convinced that he knew it all; that he was some kind of renaissance man with insights into life and love that were far beyond his years and inaccessible to anyone else. In reality, he was just more naive. Who knows – maybe […]

10 Things I Think I Know About Life


The Toyota Camry is America’s best-selling automobile and it’s available in six trim levels. The L, the LE, the XLE, the SE, the Hybrid LE, and the Hybrid XLE. I’ll also have you know that when it comes to America’s sandwiches, there’s the Whopper, which has five different variations. The classic Whopper Sandwich, the Double Whopper Sandwich, the Triple Whopper Sandwich, the Whopper Jr. Sandwich, or the all-new Carolina BBQ Whopper Sandwich. And it’s not enough. You mean […]

An Average Dave’s View of American Politics


In every age group, men and women have disparate dating issues. In their early to mid 20s, girls are as ready as ever for a serious relationship. They’re fresh out of college and off of daddy’s credit cards, as optimistic about love as they are with life. Men in their early to mid 20s? Well, they’re more aptly labled as ‘ineligible’ bachelors. They have newly minted jobs and a closet filled with fitted Express 1MX button down shirts. And they […]

The Late 20s Dating Disaster

On Friday, September 14, the world was given its first opportunity to pre-order the illustrious iPhone 5. Not familiar with it? It’s Apple’s latest smart phone, which features a slightly larger screen to showcase an extra row of apps you won’t use. And I couldn’t wait to have it. I’d waited two plus years with a 3G S – produced sometime in the B.C. years, I recall – and waited with envy as my friends […]

Mommy’s little titty boy – ahem, me – loved playing with his Fisher-Price kitchen set as a child. My uncles ridiculed me to no end because, well, wasn’t I an adorable, precocious homosexual? I eschewed the staples of masculine tradition – footballs, basketballs, baseballs – for pots and pans, hard plastic slices of white bread and faux-liquid glasses of orange juice. It was my figurative ‘cup of tea.’ Serving up make-believe breakfast to my real-life […]

Am I Gay?


LUCK: noun 1. the force that seems to operate for good or ill in a person’s life, as in shaping circumstances, events, or opportunities. Let me get something out in the open. I don’t believe that any one person has more ‘luck’ than another person. All things equal, there are times when circumstance favors some individuals over others, and vice versa. In the end, though, no person gains more favor over another simply by ‘luck.’ Like […]

I’m a Christian; just your run-of-the-mill sinner who happens to believe that love is God’s greatest principle for life. I’m not the “Take a ‘religious stance’ by eating waffle fries at Chick-Fil-A” type of Christian. Those people suck. Nevertheless, this is often the best that they can do. And here’s their MO: Profess a so-called ‘moral outrage’ not by fighting for something, but against something. Abortion? Let’s protect the fetus, but neglect the needs of […]
