****THAT's the problem. All the cool people (like you) are all married with children and NOT single, and NOT available to go out and do fun things with. And any woman who is not married is too pre-occupied with getting married, and so on.
That is also why I am *dreading* going back for Labor day weekend, (I still have not bought my tickets - cause for this very reason is why I DON'T want to go) - all I'd do is be surrounded *again* by family and friends who all have spouses and children - NO one out there is single and "string-free" NO one. And that is why I DON'T want to go. I don't like being around a majority of people who are all attached and tied up. I wish it was like when I was young and everyone was single. And I had all kinds of people to do things with.
But it's not like that anymore. Where can I possilby find some female friends *today* who would like to go out with me and find some guys we can pick up who'd be willing to take us out on a RIDE (like my younger years)? Certain things are just funner when guys are involved for some reason, such as boat rides, bike rides.
I don't know. Maybe it's just a fact of life, that getting older sucks because NO one (except me of course the lone ranger) wants to be free and string-LESS anymore. I'm the ONLY one. The ONLY ONE. The only one who enjoys freedom and not being tied down - in the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD. And it stinks. Because all I want is some *company* to enjoy freedom with me and there's no one out there who wants to. NO ONE.
