My name is David Shepard. I’m a 40-year-old divorcee from New Jersey. It took a lot of work to get here. Here is a blog about my awesome dating life. Enjoy.
The thing about context is, where do you begin? I could start with marriage, divorce, any point in my two years after my marital separation, my girlfriends before that, high school, birth. You get the idea. So, I’ll start here: I decided to break up with an amazing girl after a three-month fling. No need to get into why, but it did end on the up-and-up at least:
(Note: The text messages I send are always on the right-hand side of the image in either blue or green)
And horny I got. Figured that’s as good of a place to start as any. My horniness is about to send me off on a dating binge unlike anything the world has ever seen. Or, at least the 973.
But, first, a little about me: I’m a 40-year-old dating dude raging with testosterone and ENTJ. That kind of dude cannot be stopped!…but can be contained by one thing, and one thing only…Being a dad:
So, I’m a bad ass professional love junkie by night, but a career-minded dad supporting two kids by day. Can’t always have your cake and eat it too I guess.
Ok, what else? Well, I’ll tell you about me through my relationships with my friends. I think most would agree that a big part of life are friends. I’ll even take that one step further: These relationships and connections literally make the world go ‘round. Without them, life simply isn’t worth living IMO.
For instance, friends… Offer you encouragement:
…Support your aspirations:
…Are around when you just don’t feel like growing up, even though you’re 40:
…Are always a text (or a dating blog) away:
…Help you plan your getaways:
…Are always down for a game of cards:
…Offer great advice:
…Remind you that you are a total pussy right when you’re finally thinking you’re not:
And, most of all, they’re always there for you…And sometimes in you:
Friends aren’t all I have. I have something else that I doubt many single dudes can say they have: I have The Wife.
