Its not fun to be single at 41. I was married for 10 years. Im divorced i got two children. Its hard to start again after marriage. Its hard to really look at someone and go hey, maybe something nice will happen, you just don’t. I just know too much about life to have any optimism. Because i know that even if its nice, its going to lead to shit. I know that if you smile at somebody and they smile back, you’ve just decided that something shitty is going to happen. You might have a nice couple of dates, then she’ll stop calling you back, and that’ll feel shitty. Or you’ll date for a long time, and then she’ll have sex with one of your friends or you will with one of hers, and that’ll be shitty. Or you’ll get married and it won’t work out and you’ll get divorced and split your friends, and money, and that’s horrible. Or you’ll meet the perfect person who you love infinitely and you even argue well. And you grow together, and you have children, and then you get old together and then she’s gonna die….Thats the best case scenario. It’s that you’re going to lose your best friend and then just walk home from D’agostino with heavy bags everyday, and wait for your turn to be nothing also.
