The best kind of bachelor

(5 Sterne)

This is the kind of bachelor I'd want to be if I were in such a position. He graciously accepts his faults as a 40-something (getting fat, balding) and parries the matchmaking attempts of his female friends with finesse and humor. Not that he's unromantic, though; he's happy to aid others (or have fun pretending to thwart others) in their own relational endeavors. Bravo! Recording and reader were very good.
