I’M STOPPING! {I’m Sorry}

May 31, 2021

The reason I started posting videos in 2008 was simply to help people. I had no idea where YouTube would lead, but the last 13 years have been amazing. It’s been incredible. But, I owe you a massive apology. Since the pandemic started,  my direction and goals changed. I have published a ton of videos about women and related topics. I am sorry, and I ask for your forgiveness for going off the rails.

I became embarrassed about some of the thumbnails — I was chasing clicks and views. I do believe dating and sex should be talked about, and there’s a way to talk about it positively. But I went down the rabbit hole, and it was too much — I lost focus and went off the rails. I am sorry if I disappointed you. I have disappointed myself.

The focus needs to help you — going forward, I will choose what is right rather than views. I am going to try to do better, and I will talk about what needs to be talked about. I will be getting out of the YouTube culture of ‘views’ and ‘if you don’t get views, you suck’. I have to get out of that unhealthy mindset and be true to myself. I want to be a positive role model. I am the man today because of you — you have made me a better person. Today, I will stop letting you down and correct the course.

A few more videos will be coming out before the change, and remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day.  But I hear you, I acknowledge that I messed up, and I apologize. Thank you for being a friend and supporting me.
