Because we've now entered a society that is built on technology, we've developed a culture that exalts and reveres nerds. At least adult nerds, that is. Nerds are cool, weird is in, LET YOUR FREAK FLAG FLY. Yeah, let it fly... to a point. Even though geek culture is considered normal, you still have a friend that has always been just a little too weird.
Maybe he just doesn't know when to stop talking about Star Wars in social situations. Maybe he loves pickles too much. Maybe he goes on OKCupid dates and spends too much time watching the football game on the TV on the wall behind the girl he's certain never to see again. Maybe he wears a windbreaker as his regular jacket. All of these small reasons add up to why you were certain that he would be single forever. Or, at least single until he meets a divorcee who has lowered her standards enough to tolerate him and his pickles and windbreakers.
Surprise! He found someone just as weird as he is. She likes pickles, too. She LOVES his windbreaker. They're getting married. Goddddd bless 'em. Attend their Star Wars-themed wedding and give them this Two Weirdos Card ($5, Wit & Whistle). They found love in a hopeless place.
