Through high school, college and his twenties, he was always The Guy With A Girlfriend.He spent years enjoying pitying his single friends, and somehow, he’s now 30 and single.Yes, the woman fit for The Total Package will be the ultimate icing on his cake of perfection.He imagines her often—gorgeous as they come, she turns heads; bursting with charm and charisma, she lights up every room she enters; she’s a brilliant rising star in her career and beloved by her many friends.But The Guy Who Peaked Too Early was just getting started.
Oh and she also speaks French, plays tennis, sings beautifully, reads voraciously and she’s a history buff. As long as anyone can remember, The New Lease On Life Guy had been dating his longterm girlfriend.He’s not really sure how to be single but he’s goddamn happy he is, and he’s sure as hell going out tonight.He’s also the arch-nemesis of The Resigned Fiance, who’s in an equally unhappy relationship but just kind of kept going with it, unable to resist the sweet, sweet inertia, and who most certainly does not want to hear about The New Lease On Life Guy’s latest exploits.Girls find it endearing that such an appealing guy has managed to maintain his humility, when it’s actually just that he’s assuming every girl is out of his league at all times. He likes his job, he likes his friends, and he likes being single just fine.Once his new situation starts to sink in, he enters an unfortunate new phase, stressing his male friends out by doing things like winking at them over the shoulder of a girl he’s dancing with and offering them a fist pound when an attractive girl walks by on the street. He’s in no rush to be in a relationship and feels totally confident that at some point, he’ll meet the right girl and get married.
