no wife, no engagement even, no serious partner even.
no house. back to living with parents.
basically think like a a child, all I want to do is have fun and not think about anything resembling a career or long term plans.
play video games and watching anime instead of more mature hobbies.
dress like a kid, like wearing dark/black makeup because I'm weird like that. instead of looking professional and clean cut.
anyone else? feels.
almost 30 and haven't made it to the real adult stage in this play we call life.
I have my own apartment (thank god because idk if I could deal with living with another human being) but also not married, no family, no house. All my acquaintances (don't even call them friends anymore) are married and own homes at this point.
I don't play video games, never really appealed to me, but I spend a lot of my free time listening to music and finding new bands I like. This is just as much an escape from the adulthood responsibilities I should have by now.
I have a college degree and professional job, but that just because my parents made me go to college and I need money to live the way I want to (that is, independently). But I hate it, I hate "being an adult" for 8-10 hours a day there. Because truly, I'm not an adult yet.
I can't live the life I want to live because I have no friends and not enough money, but what I'd love to do is ditch the soul sucking corporate job and just travel the country, living out of a modified van, catching shows in different cities and hiking in the outdoors.
Um, I never grew up. I'm still basically 18-22 mentally. A serious case of arrested development. But I don't feel bad about it. I kind of like being in touch with my own childishness. I'd hate to become a serious and stuffy person who worries about … whatever it is that "mature" people worry about. What a drag. Give me cartoons and comic books. Idrc if people think I'm immature. It's the least bad thing they're likely to think of me.
In some ways I never grew up either. Me and my friends, we all loved music and seeing bands in our early 20s. Then they all grew up, got married, had kids, bought houses. I'm still in the same place, getting lost in music. Only thing is now I have no one to enjoy it with.
I'm not in contact with any friends or acquaintances I used to have, so I don't know how they're faring now. I'm sure they must've done better at growing and maturing as people than I have. Though that's a bar so low it's underground.
Same here, haven't talked to my former friends in years. But I'm sure without the psychological baggage I have, they're doing well, must better than me, and have earned the respect that comes with conforming to society's demands.
