Out of all the couples I've personally known in my life, I know maybe four or five that get together well enough to spend their lives without making each other miserable. Virtually every other couple I've ever met seems to only put up with one another because they want sex, simply "don't want to be alone", or are financially or legally forced to.
When I look at real life, I don't see the wonderful happy couples from movies and tv shows. I see resigned men and women who, like a boomer comic, day after day go "wife bad, she nag" and "husband stupid and he cheat" then feel obligated to say "We love each other, tho" because that's how you don't cause a scene.
I don't want that. As of where I am right now in my life, I have wonderful, supportive FRIENDS whom I found on a strictly platonic basis, and if am so lucky to keep them into old age, I will be happy. I'm fine just jerking off for the rest of my days. I don't need children either, I pour my paternal instinct into my garden, and if I really want to propagate my life wisdom, I'll just be a good uncle to my brother's two daughters, who currently have to put up with him and his mother's divorce, as they were at each other's throats every day.
