I’ve been alone for many years. Raised five children with a wonderful woman who, out of the blue, told me she loved someone else. Haven’t seen nor talked to her since.
I’ve chosen to stay single probably to a fault at times. I simply have no desire for the courtship volley.
Is it really that important for a 53 year old man to be with someone?
I don’t play in trashy playgrounds nor seek lascivious partners. I simply choose to do all the things that create happiness for ME.
While all of this attention is quite amusing at times, still… I choose to be alone.
