If you are not in a relationship, why do people assume that you are unhappy?
I've never been married, am not gay, and have lived alone for most of my adult life. I'm not ecstatic, but I'm not unhappy either. Why do people think that I need a girlfriend, or wife? Even my shrink suggested that I get a girlfriend a few years ago. I took his advice, and I was miserable. I admit that my choice in girlfriends may have been poor , but still, now that we are no longer dating I find that I am much happier. People are always trying to set me up with their friends. Do they really think that I am desperate enough to go out with just about anybody?
