I am not equipped to go on dates. The last time I was single, I was 24, and the dating pool was everyone! And now it’s like a shallow puddle of age-appropriate men who are old and gross and I don’t want to do that!
I know that you think it’s that bad, but honestly, it’s a lot worse. You know why? Even if you meet a nice guy… and when I mean “nice” I mean that he’s like not an obvious sociopath, you can’t even actually get excited about it, you know why, because it’s just a matter of time before someone gets bored and unhappy and is saying it’s over. And that’s a happy ending. A shitty ending is that there’s lying and cheating and you ambush Prince Charming’s wife.
I’m saying everything fails eventually and monogamy is not natural. If you can live with that, like the French thing, go head and stay put. But if you can’t, I suggest you get a game planning and leave.
