I was going to say "just some interest would be nice" but I realised that isn't quite right. Just some interest that isn't taken, or doesn't disappear to France, or some other excuse.

Maybe it's just the lack of sex talking....

Subject: Why?
Because artists (particularly actors and musicians) are the worst kind of partners (but maybe the best lovers) you can bump into in the whole masculine universe. And there is another reason but I can't tell you here.

Anyway, maybe I will be single in a month or less. Does it make some difference?


Desolée, mon anglais n'est plus si bon comme avant. Mon français aussi.
