I’m a gazelle running at 90
Go to Netflix, pull up Iliza’s Elder Millenial special, and go to the 18 minute mark (well, watch the whole thing because she’s a forking genius, but for the purposes of this discussion just watch those 4 minutes) and that’s exactly why I’m still single.
I was taking to the Coward the other night and he was telling me about this woman he had been spending time with. She pretty much treats him like crap, she’s demanding of him and his time, and he wasn’t really that in to her... but he was still spending time with her and doing things for her.
Because she “needs” him. He picks her kid up and takes him paces, he helped her move, he does whatever she tells him she needs him to do.
Meanwhile I shoot him a message tonight just to say hi and what are you doing and he ignores it. I can see he’s been on and off FB messenger all evening, I can see he saw my message, but no response. I don’t “need” him so he doesn’t show up.
