It sure does but that doesn't mean that you have to grow up. LOL One day you wake up and you are 40 yet you still feel like you are a wild, carefree 18 year old. At least that is how I feel.
My Fave saying is........

"I may grow older but,I'll never grow up.
'Cause when you grow up,you grow old and when you grow old,YOU die!!!!"
I have always said.... You never have to grow up, but you have to take care of your responsibilities... I still think I'm a kid... LOL... I hope I stay that way...

A good friend is about 52... But I swear he can give all of the young people a run for their money... Most can't even keep up with him...LMAO... He still thinks he'* young too

I don't intend to grow up.... Ever....

Default Re: Never felt as old as I do today

Somewhere around 22 or so, I forgot I was getting older. I don't feel like I'm well past that, nor do I act like it. And apparently, I don't look like it, either. Just last night, we went to go see a Tool cover band at a sports bar, and the guy at the door actually asked to see my ID on the way in. That took me a little by surprise. I don't really go to bars, on account of the fact I hate alcohol, so I haven't been in a situation that required carding very often at all since 21. I guess I was just expecting that it would look obvious by now that I'm well over 21. Must be all the make up.

I suppose 20 years isn't a long time, but it definitely feels like it.
I past the 20 marker quite some time ago, and I've had a great many friends slip into this situation. It doesn't make me feel old at all. It just makes me feel sorry for them because they're not strong enough to say "she isn't right for me, I should end this and wait for the right one", instead of "oh well, this is probably the best I can do, even though I'm only in my early/mid 20'*". It'* just another example of how insecure we can get. We're in such a hurry to "check off" another item on the "to do" list of life in order to feel adequate, or validated, that we often rush into bad, or rash decisions. There'* a reason the divorce rate is ridiculously high. Today, a person meets someone, fights with them more often than they get along, but due to having a thing or two in common, con themselves into believing they'r in love with each other. Somehow, this is often times enough grounds to get married. Problem with that is, when things finally fall apart to the point that they don't want to be around each other anymore, they need a divorce, where as if they were dating for those few years, it would have just been a break-up. In other words, marriage has become today'* form of dating.


Point is, don't sweat it. The fact that your friends are getting married isn't a sign that you're getting old. It'* a sign that they're getting into things they're too young for.

Default age

X3 guess your as young as you feel, bummer that age creeps up on us.
Theres your numeric age and theres the actual age (condition of your body).
Look at Jack Lalane, he pulls boats with his teeth every year right into retirement.
Kinda like comparing a Bonne that never had its oil changed with one that had them every 2k.

Yeah, when all the people you hung out with in High school and college are married and have kid(*), including your younger brother/sister you wonder if you're getting old -then you think -nope -still dealing with the casual relationships. Maybe too many -just haven't gotten the bug back for a serious relationship after a bad break-up (we're good friends now and she'* married with 2 kids), but I've never looked at a relationship for long term since then. It'* nice in a way, yet at times I lament a little -I just make sure lamenting doesn't last more than a case of beer or two.

In light of this -
Has anyone ever been to a HS reunion?
If so, which one(*)?
I missed my 5 and 10.

I was wondering if people really seem to grow up after years of real life?

No,I didn't like most of the people I went to school with anyway. So why would I still want to see them 20 or so years later.

I may go to my 25th reunion,just so I can see who got old,fat and ugly.

(ok,so I didn't get ugly!!)

No need to lament about women. I gave that sh*^t up a year ago. There are so many better things to do with you're life than just women. You have total freedom to do what you want when you want to do it. Take that money you have saved up from not spending it on a relationship and buy yourself something sweet. Go on a vacation.

Just remember, i'm 22 and never been in a relationship in my life. Does that mean I don't have fun in life? Absolutely not.

Trust me -I'm not very sensitive. I was just stating that when it has happened the feeling only lasted about as long as it took me to smile/laugh -I have been dating pretty much ever since I started dating (aka I don't take much time off, nor do I let either me or the girl get too attached -I know my liberties and I fully intend to practice my right to do what I please whenever I may choose to do so).
Life is too full of challenges/good times to let the past get me down -come to think of it I don't think of the past as I once did -I'm rather happy how things have turned out for myself.

I'll drink to that man. Having a sweet car in itself is a reason to be happy.
