Middle Aged Dating

Dating sucks the older you get. Doesn’t it? It gets harder to date when you get older. The pool seems to get smaller. Every year I get older is one more year I get closer to my mother’s friends pool.

“Say mom, didn’t you mention your friend Gwendolyn is a widow? You said something about her looking for another person for her Tuesday night Mahjong?”

I don’t even know what the fuck Mahjong is, but if knowing it gets you laid, then what the hell. I guess it takes a man to learn Mahjong to meet women…”

I know what you’re saying right now. “I can’t believe this comedian Flemming is actually talking about dating his mother’s friends.” I’m 48 years old people! And slightly desperate. Don’t judge me!!

The dating pool sucks. Dating in general sucks.

Two Old Friends

Come and stay with me
Just have one cup of tea
I could really use the company
I do appreciate you being my friend
And I do appreciate you staying till the end
It just that times been hard and I’ve been feeing lonely
And you’ve always been there for me
Thank you for letting me see what I can be

So come and stay awhile
I could really use a smile
Lately I was feeling low
and I had nowhere else to go
but now you’re here
and I can be so clear
talking to you my dear best friend
and how I value the time that we spend

You
are the friend
that I really trust
You
are the friend
that I really adore
You
are the friend
that I always enjoy
And you are
The friend
that I most appreciate
The one I am most proud of
To call
my friend

Stay awhile longer, I’ll cook something to eat
Because who knows again, when we will meet
And we can chat while we feast
And we can have some laughs at least
And I’ll pour some fine wine
So we can savor our time
Before you will go on your way
And you made my day

You
are the friend
that I really trust
You
are the friend
that I really adore
You
are the friend
that I always enjoy
And you are
The friend
that I most appreciate
The one I am most proud of
To call
my old friend

So stay a little longer and lets enjoy this time
Stay a little longer I have plenty of wine
Because who knows when we’ll get around to doing this again
I value the time together that we spend in the end
and I really don’t want to be much alone
and soon our time here will be soon gone
and I want this to last
but my how our time flies past

You
are the friend
that I really trust
You
are the friend
that I really adore
You
are the friend
that I always enjoy
And you are
The friend
that I most appreciate
The one I am most proud of
To call
my best friend
