Will I really die if I don’t find a partner? Can treatments of occasional dates
and one-night-stands prolong my life? Is there a hospice program for this?
How long do I have?
Oh sure, I have had periods of remission. Several times actually. Okay, more
times than I care to admit!
The first time I went into remission it was with a guy who wasn’t gay. Yeah Right!
For two years we dated, but he wasn’t gay. Then he decided to straighten up and
fly right; he has been happily married for close to ten years now.
I moved on to the Stylist. Oh, but this one was not meant to be either; for I was
just the In-Town-Work week-Squeeze. We had some great times together and have
remained great friends. Some find this odd, but it works for us.
A short time later, the man that I thought was my Prince Charming waltzed into
my life. I spent the next four years with Mr. Construction thinking; “This is the one!”
Wrong, Again! He woke up one morning with the fear that he was no longer attractive!
SO! I thought he was; who cares what everyone else thinks!
Sounds like I have been
around the block a time or two doesn’t it? Oh, there have been more. The florist
who just didn’t deserve someone like me. The Nurse’s Aide who cared too much.
Maybe I misdiagnosed myself, it’s just a rash. Yeah, that’s it just a rash of bad luck.
A rash of insecure, commitment shy, neurotic men! Yeah that’s the ticket! There is
nothing wrong with me at all!
Even with all of the failures in the past; I would love to have someone to come
home to, someone to share dinner with, snuggle on the couch with, watch movies with,
and sleep like spoons with. Heck, who doesn’t?
Okay. Maybe I'm not Terminally Single…..Just Relationship Challenged!
I guess what I need to do is start screening that “Potential New Boyfriend” just
a little bit better. Our questionnaire below might just help.
