Assuming I were* interested (*the were, in case you don't know, is to be used instead of was in cases where the thing you're talking about is not in fact true and would probably require a sizeable shift in the cosmos to become so), we all know that nice sounding, respectful guys in Alabama are pretty much married by default. (Well really pretty much everyone here, of marriageable age anyway, is married by default unless they're a newly-arrived early-career academic or from somewhere other than the South, or both.) But well.
Further, inasmuch as I do occasionally think about coupledom, it's usually just when I kind of need someone around for non-romance, non-couply stuff, you know, practical applications which would just make my life easier and for which I can't exactly count on Sam & Lucy. The current list, then, of these actual Needs is as follows:
A. talking to me while I fry (= less chance for Susanboredom), or
B. physically compelling me to stay in the kitchen (altho conversing would be nice, too), or
C. being ready to run and do whatever quick thing is nibbling at my brain (altho I could see where I would still want to be doing something else, TOO, 'cause Shit! getting 3 things done at once... Wondrous even to fathom!)
D. Another option is to let the S.O. fry, but then my control issues might have to be dealt with. Who am I kidding? The control issues would have to be dealt with in option C also... Damn.
The general staying-on-task help when I'm not frying of course comes into play mostly when tests or compos are being graded, not that I feel like I can multi-task during that but I do need someone to sit there and make me keep grading.
