"Screw you lady, that's what STAIRS are for!"

I usually don't get too personal in this column, but I have a few things I need to say out loud.

At 35, I am now three years older than my father was when he sired me. And it just blows that so many of my friends are married with children, while I ... I'm still single, and forced to put my life on hold yet again, to take care of not one but two family members.

It totally sucks that just when I'm about to get control of my life again, someone -- God or someone else -- throws yet another curve ball at me, putting me back in the place where society thinks I belong. This blog is a great stress reliever, but it's no replacement for a relationship.

And it's gotten to the point where I'm just pissed off. Pissed off, like this ...

By the way, dudes need not apply ... I'm straight.

Take heart. I'm getting close to being 20 years your senior and your age is when I finally met the person I'll be with forever.

That said, I had a pretty full "relationship" life before that time. But, my Mom died that year and she was only 20 years older than Mom and my friend at that stage.

I didnt think I could cope because much preceded it, but guess what? You'll be fine.

I'm not applying. I'm just saying it will be fine. There is an aspect of believing that, that does apply here.

Cute vid...but don't attract that to yourself. I'm not being woo-woo here...just pratical.

All the best.

Good video :-) Sorry about your rotten luck, but there's something about things always being darkest before they get brighter.
