I don't believe humans are put on this planet to live alone. All of us desire companionship. ALL of us!! Yes, some will say that they enjoy "being alone." But...I don't believe 'em for one moment! No, they may not want to be married or in an exclusively monogamous romance, but they do NOT want to be alone. They want someone to talk to. To laugh with. To cuddle with. And, although I've tried to pretend I don't...I DO! So, this ol' dude is open to meeting and chilling with a new companion. And, yes, I want a dog in the very near future, but it WON'T be a suitable substitute for a HUMAN companion. There, I've said it aloud. Now, let me DO something about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
