It seems like a couple of your writers are using their columns as a rather feeble attempt to pick up women.
While I don't believe their whining is necessary, I do believe that they are portraying the way a lot of people feel. Being a jaded single male myself, I often find myself slipping into the same position these guys feel they're in.
However, hearing them spew out their frustrations has made me realize just how pathetic we sound. What everyone needs to realize is that we're never going to find love by searching and looking for it.
Love doesn't work like that. As a matter of fact, I think that we probably spend so much time looking for love and companionship that we overlook what might already be there.
Sometimes the best relationships start out as friendships, because we learn to like people more for who they really are, not just that typical first impression you get when you stumble up to someone at a bar. I'm not saying that everyone should run around trying to "hook up" with their friends, but maybe people should take a few steps back and try to look at the big picture. The true tragedy in this is that by the time people realize what's been there all along, it's usually too late.
So to all my fellow single friends, male and female alike, cheer up and stop being so pessimistic; you'll find what you're looking for someday.
