Being the only man alive=no rejection
Being the only man alive significantly reduces the potential for rejection in my view. And it cuts performance anxiety practically to nothing.

Well, it's fiction. It's not fan fiction, unless it Generic Apocalypse Fan Fiction, but that's ok.

It was well and cleverly written, but not my thing. I wanted to see some kind of motivation for the main character, and he was beyond bland. The whole tone of the story is bleak, bland acceptance, which I find depressing and unrealistic.

And I hold that two things for which one should never settle are gin and platonic relationships.

Although I enjoyed the writing style, and was compelled to read it to the end, I found it quite dreary and depressing - definate kudos to the author as I did think it worth reading, but it's not the type of thing I'd go for on a regular basis. I also agree with the comments about the main character - I prefer people who I can emphasis with in some way or at least I recognise in one of my friends....he just seemed the type of person I'd have never spoken to except to borrow a pen from in class - but maybe that was the intent of the writer?
