“Single life is not good. I’d rather have a girlfriend than be single…It’s an empty feeling. Did you ever wake up and say where am I, or where I should go, I gotta look at a telephone book. You ever get that feeling where you’re absolutely lost? I can’t explain that feeling but that’s the feeling I have when I’m not with somebody. You’ll have the same problem. I might be an old fart but still you’ll go through the same thing.”
-Gilbert Delgado, 72
