Instead of crying over the death of his marriage, Rodney has started enjoying his singlehood. Praising his time being single, Rodney said:
“I will tell you this. Once you come out of the cave of divorce, good God is the sun much brighter.”
“You start realizing you don’t have to answer to anybody when it comes to where you want to go, where you want to eat, where you want to vacation, how you spend your money – none of that.”
He felt that his freedom and singlehood was intoxicating and he did not want anyone else in his life who could jeopardize it. He had tried dating some girls in Vegas but realized times have changed and so has the types of women. He finds it difficult to keep pace with that and change. He does not want to date anymore. He wants a sweet marriageable woman who has her own life and poses no drama. He said:
“I like quiet dinners, a cigar, a couple of drinks, nice music, conversation and bed. Vegas has all that…”
