I think of “pickup lines” as the kind of things middle school guys joke about but nobody actually uses. Then when you see somebody trying to use them… as a teenager.. in their 20s… in their 30s… in their 40s… in their 50s… you realize they didn’t get the memo that it was all just bad jokes.
You’re a very lucky man indeed. I’m single by choice but not against the notion of relationships nor do I worry if I felt the need. I had a few horrible relationships and realized it wasn’t for me at that time. I went through them because I thought I was supposed to. Then I realized I had a choice. Maybe one day that’ll change but I’m in no rush.
