'My, but you are ageing very well'

I ran into an old would-be girlfriend today. I say "would be" because, well, while I wanted to date her (this was ten years back), she did not think me good enough to date her. So here we are, ten years on, and both of us are still single. She complimented me so well that I began to blush: "My, but you are ageing well. You know, you are getting to look more and more like Brad Pitt!"

I looked in the mirror when I returned home and knew that she was right. But she, on the other hand, clearly has lost her looks. And to think that she could have had me.

Ladies, don't let this happen to you in life. Learn to settle for Mister Goodenough.
