Fortyish single guy 1, in contemplation: “I have reached the age where my friends are getting remarried…”

Fortyish single guy 2, in exasperation: “I have reached the age where my friends are getting re-divorced…”

Ready to Single | Dusted

When I was of “marriageable age” and single, and found my friends one after the other getting married or heading there, I would go: ‘Another one bites the dust.’

Now that I am more “middle age” and still single, and find many of those friends telling me they are either divorced or heading there, I find myself going: ‘Another one the dust bites back.’
