Love, Actually

That's the name of what could be in my opinion, the best romantic comedy EVER. It's been running on HBO this month and I finally got to see it. All the way from Bill Nighty singing a bad cover of "Love Is All Around" to The Beach Boys "God Only Knows" (In the top five of all tie favorite songs), the film is wonderful with all of it's many characters in and out of love.

I don't like to talk about love and romance here much. Only because It's been so long since I've known what that's all about. I've tried since my wife left me in 1999 to start from scratch with everything, but the one thing that I miss right now is being a meaningful relationship. It hasn't been easy. I don't have the cash to flash, and I'm not that bad looking of a guy. I just seem to be perpetually single. AFTER FIVE YEARS.

I had a friend of mine break it down for me a few weeks ago. I
have loads of good friends that I see all the time. Because of that, it makes up for not having a relationship. I don't think it makes sense, but it seems true. I know alot of folks, but come on here. If you had a choice of going to the bar with your friends or going to a romantic dinner with someone special, which would you do? I thought so.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm almost forty (actually 39 in seven weeks and counting), but I really want to settle down and meet a decent woman. I know it's not easy, but I keep on looking and I'll keep praying that the Big Guy will send me someone special. Until then, I'll keep watching films like "Love, Actually" and see romance
on the screen until it's my time. I hope it ain't too long.

I promise not to get too wussy again soon. I just had to talk to someone about it. I'm glad you listened.
