Arash’s “Can Movie Romance Really Happen For Me? Monologue

Synopsis: Arash has reached the pinnacle of his career but he questions what comes next in his life.  Is it marriage and children?  He is certain.

Arash: I did it.  Now that I’ve done it, I’m not so sure what to do next.  It’s taken me years, so many years, it’s all I ever thought about and now here I am.

I never thought about what to do next.  I never considered what comes after!

Do I get married now?  Do I have kids?  Is the whole settle down mentality supposed to overcome me?

I don’t know.  I don’t feel as though that’s the right step for me but what if there’s something wrong with me.  I mean, as a guy who is american I shouldn’t want to settle down at any point!

The thought of taking it easy and making time for others is horrifying to me.  I’m sorry, I know that sounds terrible.  Maybe I’m just too selfish!

I do want kids.  I think I want marriage.  Maybe that’s the trouble right there.  I’d like to have children but I’m not so sure I want a nagging wife.  Not a nagging wife to rely on cause I’m self-sufficient but a wife to be in love with.

I want to be in love, like, “movie romance love 40 year old virgin guy”.  Is that all a myth?  Can movie romance really happen for me?

Whoever she will be, if she does even exist, really has to blow me away…enough to where nothing else in my own personal life could possibly matter because I have her beating in my heart.

Am I cheesy?  Well, I think that’s the only way for me.

I think that’s when I’ll settle down and wish to start a family!
