pittsoccer33, I hope you're not fending off nosy married people (OK, mostly the women) who demand to know when you're going to "settle down"/why not/what's your problem/etc.
I can't stand it when people do that. I didn't like it directed at me when I was single, and today I sure as heck wouldn't dream of imposing the question to anyone else. I just think it's so discourteous. If the single person wants to volunteer the information or initiate the topic, then that's different.
sure am. there is nothing about starting a family that is appealing to me. the blog myfriendsaremarried.tumblr.com might be more girl oriented, but its all so true. some of my friends claim they're envious of me, other want to know when im going to get sick of going to Villa on the weekends.
my sister is 25 and she probably has less interest in having a family than me. my mother absolutely hates it. girls probably get quizzed about this more. for my friends/coworkers im more of a curiosity. "you did what this weekend?!" "you went where?!" "you woke up where?!" not interested in trading it in.
ive been casually dating a girl a bit younger than me for a few months and my lone single friend hates that too. he thinks something has to be wrong with me for wanting to go out with a younger girl, but it seems to make a lot of sense to me. her top priorities for the weekend are having fun, not wasting money at ikea or bed bath and beyond.
