When 29 Gets to be Old

I'm sitting at the airport right now in Phoenix in deep reflection. I mean deep. I think I need to stop drinking so much Red Bull vodka. I'm sad and nostalgic. I just got done with my friends Erin and Stefan's wedding. They even had me be master of ceremonies - why? Probably because of my deep Barry White/James Earl Jones-type voice and Brad Pitt-type good looks. It may also be because of my humility, but probably more because of my good looks.

This may seem unbecoming of such a swinging bachelor, but I'm sad that all my friends are finding such great partners while I'm still mired in the batter's box. I have another good friend's wedding in a few more weeks and my sister's in August. I'm so happy for all of them, but my remaining single friends are quickly dwindling. Is 29 old? Maybe I should start drinking Ensure with my vodka.

Is it that I'm too picky? I don't ask for much. I just want to find a girl who doesn't smoke, wants kids, drinks, loves to travel, has a job, smart, funny, down-to-earth, can be classy and elegant in an evening gown and equally as comfortable wearing a baseball cap going to a ballgame, likes to try new things, communicates well, loves to dance, likes or is willing to listen to country music..... that's not too bad is it? I'm tired of dating. But who knows? The grass always LOOKS greener on the other side.

P.S. Off to Vegas now for work, but even Vegas leaves me with an empty feeling these days.

  1. Kevin Leu - just read your blog and I wanted to say that 29 is not old, and of course you have heard this before, but every one's life has a different timeline, so don't rush yours in any way... it happens when it is supposed to..

  2. Kev.- Wow , I just read your blog. I have known you now for about 11years, and I have to say You forgot to mention that you are a great friend to have as well, besides all the other qualities lol. But on a serious note, I dont think 29 is Old. I believe each person goes through a different type of " Journey" . With all the things you have accomplished up to now, I dont think having a relationship or a significant other would have been an appropriate timing.

  3. Sepi thanks. I guess you're right. I have accomplished a lot. I mean how many people have collected over 100 G.I. Joe action figures and watched the Matrix over 30 times in their lives?!? Livin the dream I tell ya, livin the dream.

    It's not easy for the "SVB" to show vulnerabilities.... My adoring public demands tales of bachelorhood debauchery! Too bad I'm still in Vegas, because what happens here.....
