Honeymoon Junkie: Everything but the Girl

After earning my MBA from Cornell University, I spent over ten years on Wall Street at Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. While my career blossomed, I failed miserably at finding my “second soul mate” in Manhattan, and decided to write a memoir about my trials and tribulations.

I had been happily married to a girl I met in high school, when I was unwillingly and unceremoniously dumped onto the Manhattan single scene. At twenty-nine I had failed at something for the first time and felt utterly undesirable. I was chubby, wore glasses, owned a boring wardrobe, drove a pedestrian Honda, and lived in the suburbs. I faced bachelorhood while trying to balance the challenges of building a career at Goldman and parenting a four-year-old from a distance of three hundred miles. After thirteen adventurous and exhilarating years of dating, I never imagined enjoying so many relationships with such an incredibly interesting and amazingly diverse group of women.

My tale is about an underdog who miraculously finds passage on a titanic cruise that most men only dream of taking, few could navigate, and fewer could cleverly compose.  At the outset, my biggest challenge was to polish my tarnished skills and rediscover my swagger. Underneath the rust, I was blessed with the traits of an alpha male: handsome, athletic, two Ivy-League degrees, and a burgeoning career at Goldman Sachs.

Honeymoon Junkie: Everything but the Girl is a truthful confession that is a game changer, a story about emotional recklessness, becoming comfortably numb, and the perilous consequences.  The narrative exposes some scandalous relationships including the mistress of a Presidential candidate. Most men would define my adventure as “just living the dream”, but as the saga drew to a close, I faced the brink of emotional bankruptcy until I searched my soul and realized I had unintentionally fallen in love with a sweet southern belle.
