Half-remembered-article-filter: Being a single male in your 40s.

Some time in the last few years I read a very witty article by a male writer on what it is like to be single in your 40s. It was in the style of Charlie Brooker in a way, but very literate and urbane. I'm almost sure the writer was American, and the line I particularly remember was something about sitting and regarding the empty hole at the centre of your own life.
It may have been from the New Yorker or a similar standard of publication, though I think I read it on the writer's own site. This is very vague I know, but not being able to find it is frustrating me immensely. Anyone happen to know what I'm talking about?
