Practice Makes Perfect

As a singer and musician, one thing that I've learned is that "practice makes perfect."  I've learned that practice not only makes perfect, but it helps you to find out who you are.
  I was recently rehearsing a song that I absolutely love, but I had to change the key of it because the original artist is a female and I'm a bass, baritone guy.  I practiced the song several times and I also recorded each rehearsal picking apart the does and don'ts when singing this song. I must say it came in handy.

  Today as I ventured out into the mall, I saw other happy couples of various types and I smiled, but it was so hard for me to mask the pain that I feel inside.  See, a few weeks ago me and my boo parted ways and I was devastated.  The reason being was number one the way in which the boo broke up with me, the second part was because of the fact there was limited communication and just really no explanation.  Don't get me wrong, I've had my share of suitors and have my share of callers, but no one really worth my time.  I just don't understand.
  What did I do wrong?  The break up was partly because I didn't meet certain "qualities" such as being overly macho and overdosed on testo…
