Answer #293 …

… to the question, “Why are you alone?”

“No one needs anything from me.”

I like it, because it’s not directly accusatory or self-deprecating enough for anyone to be able to immediately argue with me about it. It’s a little of both, but it will require a moment of sober reflection (sober being the key) for someone unprepared to frame an argument expressing their offense.

I also like it because it is fairly cynical, and the truth of the cynicism is undeniable.

It’s also untrue. There are plenty of people out there who need what I have to offer. The real problem is that women are bad at identifying me as someone who can provide what they need.
