it has begun. motherfuckers.
for once i'm genuinely curious and not just looking to throw accusations of racism around
more than twice as common
my friend had 2 kids by the time he was 18. He loves it.
does he have tattoos of their names in gothic writing?
he has 3 kids now. And a really good job and everything. makes me feel a teeny bit inadequate.
one girl's now on her 3rd
like, happy wholesome ADORABLE families
that's not cool. It'll be even worse a few months down the line when you get parents and other elder relatives saying "So when are you going to...etc"
in a group of friends who are all practically married. so hopefully i'll be the last one to get those sorts of questions. hopefully.
but as time goes on people will just end up going "oh ffs, just marry SOMEONE"
completely loveless marriage, but with someone that i wouldn't mind having sex with a couple of times, and who might even be likely to slap me about once or twice. then i could be the mysterious/tragic one and make money off it by writing books about my scandalous life. i'm being semi-serious here.
you sound like one of the bamnam or g3s-esque mentals
i just want to do it for the hell of it.
think about it.
i dunno, ive got a pretty sedaate attitute to marriage, long term relationships atm. just like, if it happens it happens, whatever age.
I've been tryimg to persuade my housemate to fake marry me for ages.
I want my green card.
none with families yet, thankfully.
Anyway, I can reassure myself that 23 is still young. Yes? Yes.
I AM YOUNG
get shitfaced and hit on everyone
its tradition innit.
"what's a handsome guy like you doing in a place like this? ...getting married? oh."
Children: Kodi [Surname]
and can't spell.
i'm gonna be the guy at 35, still single, everyone else married off...friends of the family asking if i'm queer. good times.
not settling down because we won't grow up and stuff
not because we can't find anyone good.
we all know
either that or end up in a middling band with no commerical success but a cult following. "You can't settle down" etc.
It was interesting being back home for christmas. I went to a houseparty hosted by two of my friends who have moved in together, who have been bf and gf since college. The rest of the crowd was essentially people from college who hadn't settled down in the four years since.
i need to be like..a writer or film director or academic to get away with being single at 35
which is unfortuanate
for being so old
and the only one of my group of school friends not to have a wife/long term partner, I feel I can say from experience that it gets easier as you get older. When you have five weddings in a summer to go to for three years on the trot you get a bit blase about them.
Just don't sleep with the bride's sister. No matter how many times she tells you she's always fancied you.
But godsons are AWESOME.
and what were the disastrous consequences that made you say what you said in that post?
The consequences weren't disastrous (Haiti), just awkward for a while.
ok, so it's just standard drunken one night stand consequences then
i see. you have my sympathy.
If you leave your shoes at the door, they'll be polished by the time you come back from breakfast.
I fear I'm giving away too much.
i really want to go stay in a hotel for a bit now. not to have sex with anyone's sister, just because staying in hotels is nice.
Depends on the sister.
and have a wild, youthful, consequence-free affair with me
cause really, i'm not that way inclined. it's just freaking me out a bit that i'm now THAT AGE, or rather that people my age are, well, grownups. i dunno.
but yeah, sure.
which you know.
i'll have my people contact yours then.
that sounds like you're implying something rude
just meant you're probably not that bothered deep down, which you kinda said above
what did you think i meant?!
I remember one telling me she wanted "a beautiful black baby" and was only going to go to "hip hop clubs." I didn't keep in touch so don't know how that worked out for her.
but the plan probably worked. it seems pretty foolproof tbh
The person I described is only going to exist in the context of Bebo
look her up on bebo and report back please
there's a whole slew of others with kids already too, as far as i know she's the only one married other than another girl who married a 40-something dude with 2 kids and just had her first on the new year.
if i was funny i could make this funnier but fuck you, not worth it
One of these days you'll find a nice girl and settle down too
you calling me a cunt
me making a joke
you getting that bit closer to breaking your keyboard in frustration
off the top of my head I can count 6 friends my age or younger who have children. All are in stable relationships, some engaged, some married.
It kind of freaks me out but then I enjoy being introduced to the little ones as "Uncle Phil" which gives me the urge to demand Jeffery make me breakfast and give my nephew/niece a lecture on Malcolm X.
but if you said Doncaster now I would not be surprised.
i'm shocked but not necessarily surprised
she said they have them young there as well.
people who are actually from durham are dirty. one girl i went to school with lived in a caravan in her nans garden with a 24yr old and (i think) she was the same girl who called her kid Destiny after Destiny's Child
in my fairly limited experience of durham girls.
they broke the rules, you either have kids in your teens or your 30's never inbetween, thats the way things should be
