Investing in More Space

I have a male friend who complains that he can't find a girlfriend.

It's never made any sense to me. He's a reasonably attractive guy, he has a good job (he's a doctor, doing his residency), and he goes out with lots of women.

But they never seem to go beyond the second or third date. Sometimes, they'll come over to his place, and then it's usually over.

The other day I realized why. I went over to his apartment for the first time.

In his bedroom, he has a TWIN bed. Like, in a college dorm room.

I told him, "That has got to go! You are a 30-year-old man. You need a double bed, at least. You're not in junior high anymore."

His response was, "Why? My mom bought me that bed when I was in medical school. I don't need a bigger one. What's wrong with it?"

Uhhhh..I couldn't even begin to explain to him everything that's wrong with it. Or with the fact that his mom bought him the bed.

I told him he should invest in a bunk bed, with Superman sheets. Or at least get a twin bed that is in the shape of a convertible. Chicks dig that.
