Happily Ever After

happily-ever-after-invented

This explains a lot.

According to Seeking Happily Ever After (a documentary), there are about 4 million single 30-something women in the US who’ve never been married.

So I’m not the only one! I knew it!

Favorite quote from the trailer: “Gosh. What are some of the downsides of being single?” [followed by shit-eating grin and laughter]

heh heh

      Ha! Right on. #2 is cracking me up. But who the heck is Jeremy? I’m clearly missing a “cultural” reference. I’m thinking of Pearl Jam’s Jeremy – that freaky kid with the bomb or whatever. Though I’m pretty sure that’s not what The Onion meant.

  3. most of us dating veterans have our jeremys and jennys, the ones who got away.
