Iris: I’m thinking of inviting Simone and Jerry over for dinner.
Alex: This isn’t another attempt at matchmaking, is it? Jerry is a confirmed bachelor and he’s not looking to marry or become involved in a relationship.
Iris: He’s not a confirmed bachelor. In this neighborhood with so many single women, he’s an eligible bachelor.
Alex: You mean in this neighborhood full of old spinsters! Stop trying to set him up with one of them.
Iris: How do you know he doesn’t want a relationship? Maybe he’s just shy and needs a little prodding. Maybe he has a fear of commitment and we can all help him overcome it.
Alex: Maybe he just wants to be left alone by meddling neighbors and ladies on the prowl. There are many benefits to remaining a bachelor.
Iris: You mean living a celibate and empty life?
Alex: You’re making too many assumptions. You don’t know the first thing about his life and whether he’s happy or not. In many ways, a bachelor’s life is idyllic.
Iris: How can you say that?
Alex: Would any bachelor have to have this conversation with anyone, ever?
