Hi. I’m Matthew Fray, but most people call me Matt when they’re not calling me “talented and brilliant,” or a “stupid hack blogger who sucks.”
I write about marriage, relationships and divorce a lot because after my nine-year marriage ended, life got really hard—even regular things like breathing and sitting still. That experience, combined with how much I didn’t like my parents’ divorce when I was little, keeps me writing things down.
Some people like it and say it helps them make sense of current and former relationships.
I tell people about my marriage and divorce, because sometimes it helps others recognize similarities in their lives and relationships. Maybe they will make better choices.
I believe divorce is the biggest social crisis of our time and affects too many of us.
I write about it often. Sometimes I write about other things, too. Sometimes people care. Sometimes people call me a big, fat, stupid idiot. Sometimes people say the stories help them.
I hope so.
Must Be This Tall To Ride is a metaphor for not being good enough. We all feel inadequate in certain situations or with certain people. I think that’s bad, and that it collectively makes our lives worse.
I don’t think we have to feel that way.
I think about, talk about, read about and write about the human experience as I see it, in an effort to live better. To stand and walk taller.
It’s awesome that you’re here. Thank you.
