Guess it is a part of my quarter life crisis even though things have been going a lot better for me in recent months in regards to employment (loving my full-time job!) and financially (pay is decent for someone like me).
I often wonder about my 30s and have this habit of looking ahead to see what can await. One thing I know for certain is that I don't want to go the marriage and starting a family route but I often wonder what the alternative life is like for guys who decide to go the same route as me.
It seems like college and some parts of your 20s are all about the parties, having fun, fitting in, being cool, and what not. Then after some point in the mid 20s, a good number of people get married and start to look towards family life.
This is supposed to be life for like at least 80% of Americans it seems:
High school -> Start to have fun and experiment with new things
College -> Fun is at an all time high as you are surrounded by many others your age and have no parental supervision
20s -> Job, work, start family, have kids, buy house, and "grow up"
30 and onwards -> Adult life has started, you are a dad or mom, and time to invest your life into your kids!
But what awaits for guys who have their lives together but just don't want to be dads or start a family after the age of 30?
Career and loneliness?
