I agree. We can say this if we believe that "a man" is only flesh, bones and blood.
But if we believe that "a man" is not only flesh, bones and blood but he is spirit in physical body then relationship with Gods also can be done...umm... let's say, in some kind of unique way.

I barely have personal relationships with people...I don't have the energy or the inclination to start any with deities.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Why?
You don't have time? I mean "no time for relationship with people"?

I am pretty solitary...always have been a loner but more so with each passing year.

In case you are wondering...I am okay with it. I really do need and enjoy solitude. I learned as a child to entertain myself and it works for me.

I would be upset if I didn't have my dogs, the cat, and the parrots though. Smile

Oh, I totally can understand this. I also love to be alone, to belong to myself, to do whatever I want.

Looks like you are in a good company. Smile

P.S. what kind of dogs do you have? I have chocolate lab, her name is Wendy.

I only get worried when people try to introduce me to their imaginary friends and expect me to take them seriously. Wink

You should teach them to play board games. Like chess or shogi.
