In addition to wanting to pursue new projects, David wanted something more—a normal life. "I had no life," he says. "In the end, I found it so difficult to be just a human being."
Although he was 25 when the show ended, David says he still felt like a teenager. "I was emotionally 19 because I hadn't—other than my wife, who later became my wife—I hadn't had a date," he says. "It was very difficult for me to meet women, not young girls because a lot of them were young girls. So it became a very difficult thing for me. For me personally, I wanted to have that relationship. I felt very isolated and lonely."
