I've seen some scenes from the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin and it looks hilarious (I'm planning on renting it). It's a comedy but frankly I find the idea of someone being that age and still being a virgin kind of sad. A friend of mine, who I've know since childhood is 50, single and has never had a girlfriend or any kind of experience with the opposite sex. And it's not for lack of wanting it either. He must realize now that his chances are lower than ever and his best years are behind him, a pretty depressing thought. I emailed him recently but got no reply. He doesn't seem very interested in keeping in touch with his old buddies and I can't help but wonder if this is related. We've all gotten married, many have had kids, some are even grandparents, and he can't even get to first base. I feel for him but on the other hand he never seemed to take much initiative to go out and socialize. Years ago, when we were alot younger and lived in the same city, I'd ask him to come along to parties and he usually declined.
