Marital stance

“Are you dating anyone?” Everyone asks me that. Yeah, it’s been years since I’ve dated anyone; wow, time flies when you’re busy reading, thinking, learning. Lots of questions about life and figuring out my role in the universe, that’s my excuse. I’m not a bad-looking gent, have a good job, smart (not ivy league smart), a desire to learn, take care of my ma, have cool tats and great taste in jackets and boots; so why am I still single? The same reason that my longest relationship has been eight weeks. Twice. See the pattern? I wonder if being too (very very) independent is having consequence, meaning I really don’t know how to sustain a lasting relationship and now teaching a dog new tricks won’t work. Hmm, again I must brood myself to sleep =P
