I’ve practically given up on trying to meet women through the standard routes. That’s just been a nightmare so far. I don’t even want to go into it.
I think I shall turn to the internet in search of romance. I’ve known several people who, were it not for the internet, would likely have ended up spending the remainder of their lives like celibate monks.
Perhaps I shall find someone. They might live on the other side of the world. But I’m sure the plane ticket to Japan (or wherever!) will be worth it when I finally do.
