Well, she supposedly regularly performs for him on webcam and talks to him every day, and has lots of friends.

I on the other hand have far less interaction with people I know and tend to just do maths when I get lonely, but I cannot do that all day or my head will explode.

You will definitely need to find something else to fill up the remaining time. Every guy goes through periods of long droughts. That is unavoidable.

I watch a lot of tennis highlights. New tennis tournament starting in a few days too, that will take up 1-2 hours of my days.

That is one way, sports can take your mind off of anything.

And adriana absolutely hates tennis, as do her friends, so it cannot remind me of her at all.

Does she play or does she just watch?

She just watches now but used to play when she was a younger kid and even more of a tomboy, so she claims.

I presume we are talking about what we call soccer. Over here they play it coed at that age.

Yes, it is called soccer in the US. It is the most popular sport over here.

I know that also I understand they play snooker there.

Yep, it is not really popular among my friends though. Seems to be more of a rich guy's game.

Hi;

I did not know that. You ever try soccer?

Only when I was young. Had to stop playing, just like basketball and tennis, because my knees hurt too much. Eventually I just couldn't even kick the ball anymore because the impact force on my knee was too great.

I remember you told me about your knees. Any other sports you like to watch?

I like to watch football when the Euro or World Cup is on (one comes once every 2 years which is enough football for me). Athletics too. Other than that, not really... tennis is the only one I watch religiously. My friend says I am obsessed with it...

Watching sports is a good way to relax. Do they do any sports betting over there?

Plenty. Mostly on football or the grand national (horse racing)... I am old enough to gamble now, but I don't want to do it to be honest. I'm afraid that if I got a decent profit I may become addicted.

Best to stay away from it. Did she say why she hates tennis?

They are a pain. High maintenance.

I think she is less high-maintenance than the average girl but sure is more confused than the average girl.

Actually she is no maintenance.
