Recently, I was talking to a sweet man from overseas. I’ve known him peripherally for a lot of years, although this was one of the only times we’d really talked.
He asked, “Why are you not married?”
I laughed. “I ask myself that all the time! I guess I just haven’t met the right person yet.”
“But how old are you?”
“I’m about to be 32.”
He paused, and then spoke slowly. “It’s okay. You still look young.”
