Mark: Hi, Jack, how have you been?
Jack: Not very well.
Mark: Why?  Looks like you're feeling very down! What happened? 
Jack: Nothing.
Mark: Come on.  For a man who's feeling so down, there're usually two reasons.  Either his career is going downhill, or he has a broken heart.  Since you're so successful, it must be the other.
Jack: Well, you're right.  I just broke up with Jane.
Mark: Oh, I'm sorry.  I thought you two were made for each other.
Jack: Well, you never know.  I'm ready for a commitment and want to settle down, but she says she wants to pursue her career while she's still young.
Mark: Well, you can't blame her.  It's always difficult to choose between career and family.
Jack: Maybe you're right.
Mark: Jack, I don't know what to say to comfort you, but cheer up!  There's plenty of fish in the sea and you'll find your soul mate, your perfect match!
