Die Alone with Me
I haven't given up on love. I think I've just given up thinking it's going to happen magically at some special time. I think as I get older, I get more comfortable with myself and more accustomed to that comfort. This makes it difficult to compromise and deal with another's faults and special behaviors that might have made them seem adorable to me when I was younger. Now, I find that being alone for the rest of my life is a distinct possibility. I am a single gay man, with no partner and no children. I don't even have a dog. I'm not sad. Occasionally I'm lonely, but I enjoy my own company. I got the idea for Die Alone With Me, when I considered my other friends, who are my age, single and gay, with no children and dating. Maybe when we're in our 80's we'll be roommates, like the Golden Girls, single and dying alone together. This is not a place of loneliness, but a place for finding people like you, or people you love, who are alone and can find the humor in it. Seriously, you gotta laugh, otherwise you'll scare people off and you'll end up dying alone alone! So, if you're aging, getting more finicky, gay or straight, looking for a chuckle or an accidental insight, pop on over and DIE ALONE WITH ME.
