BUT I'M IN MY 40s NOW,I'VE, UH...

I DON'T KNOW, I JUST...WHEN YOU RAISE YOUR NECK

YOU ALMOST HAVE TO DOA BAD BRANDO IMPRESSION.

BUT I SAID I HAVEFEAR OF COMMITMENT.

I ACTUALLY, THERE WASONE WOMAN I THOUGHT...

WHO WAS A LITTLE OLDER THAN ME

I THOUGHT I WASGOING TO MARRY HER

BECAUSE I WANTEDTO HAVE A KID AND I...

I USED TO LIE IN BEDAT NIGHT AND SAY

"OH, MAN, YOU KNOW, LIKE, GOD

"I'LL BE 170 AND SHE'LL BE 174

AND I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN..."

I MEAN, LIKE, YOU KNOW

IT'S LIKE, IT'S A STUPID EXCUSENOT TO BE WITH ANYBODY, I MEAN.

I TAKE INTIMACY BOOSTER SHOTS,LIKE, ONCE A WEEK AT MY DOCTOR.

I MEAN, I'M SCARED.

I GUESS I'M NERVOUS.

I GO TO DINNERWITH, LIKE, A NEW DATE.

I MEAN,BEFORE THE APPETIZER COMES

I LITERALLY SLIP INPRENUPTIALS-- IT'S SAD.

I GO, "GOSH, YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

BY THE WAY, EVERYTHING I OWNBEFORE THE ENTREE IS MINE."

I DON'T... YOU KNOW,I DON'T MEAN TO BE SEXIST

BUT I'M JUST...I DON'T KNOW, I JUST, UH...

THEN WE MAKE LOVE, IF I'MLUCKY ENOUGH TO MAKE LOVE.

YOU KNOW, GETTING CLOSE--IT'S JUST TOUGH.

AFTER, YOU KNOW,AFTER INTERCOURSE, I SAY

"HEY, YOU'RE FREE TO GO NOW."

IT'S JUST SORT OF...

( laughter )

SHE SAYS, "DON'T YOU LOVE ME?

"CAN'T YOU TELL METHAT YOU LOVE ME?

"SAY... READ MY LIPS,SAY 'I LOVE YOU.'"

I GO, "NO, YOU'LL HEAR IT."

SHE SAYS, "HOW?"

"WORD OF MOUTH, WORD OF MOUTH."

YOU KNOW, SAD, I KNOW.

AND, UH, YOU KNOW,AND THEN AFTER INTERCOURSE

IF, UH, I'M LUCKY ENOUGHTO HAVE AN ORGASM, UH...

I JUST CAN'T STAY IN BED.

I HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, IF I'M ATHER HOME I JUST HAVE TO SPLIT.

YOU KNOW, I MAKE UP THESE, LIKE

REALLY DESPICABLEEXCUSES TO LEAVE.

I GO, "GOD, MY ANT COLONY!

MY ANT COLONY..."

BUT, UM, THE OTHER NIGHT

I WAS WITH THIS WOMAN

AND I WAS STARTINGTO FALL IN LOVE WITH HER

AND I GOT SCARED.

THIS IS THE FIRST SIGN: YOU GETSCARED, THEN YOU START TO LIE

AND YOU TRY TO RUN AWAY.

THIS IS A PROBLEMWITH MEN AND WOMAN, YOU KNOW

FEAR OF COMMITMENT.

AND, YOU KNOW, RIGHT AFTER WE,YOU KNOW, UH, WE MADE LOVE

I SAID, "LOOK, I'M SORRY,BUT I FAKED MY ERECTION.

I'M SORRY."

( laughter )

HEY, I'M SHARING IT WITH YOU.

IT'S SAD THAT I'M SHARING ITWITH STRANGERS.

BUT NO, YOU'RE NOTSTRANGERS ANYMORE

BECAUSE I'LL BE OUT HEREFOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

SO, YOU KNOW,WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK
