You've been dead for ages

A man who had just died, arrived at heaven's gate. Before allowing him entry, St. Peter asked him if he'd ever loved a woman.
"No," the man replied, "Not a single one."
"Did you have a friend you cared for?"
"Perhaps you loved a pet? Did you not feel a love for nature?"
"What took you so long to get here?" asked a surprised St. Peter. "You've been dead for ages."
