Pre Mid Life Crisis




Is anyone getting to the age where they feel like everyone around them is getting married and having kids and your not even in a stable relationship? At the age of 24 two months shy of my 25th birthday I am suffering from a pre-mid life crisis. If that makes any sense. Dating for me is tough only because I’m not the best at communication. If I am feeling a certain way about a situation I tend to shut the other party out and ignore them until I am ready to talk. Selfish, yes. Little Kiddish, yes. In today’s social society it is hard to keep the interest going after the flame is winding down from the initial “get-to-know-you” phase. And with Facebook and Twitter sometimes you find out something about a person that you don’t particularly like. I know I sound like I'm whining but dating in this day and age (damn i'm old) is hard. Anyone have any advice or inspirational messages for this Hopeless Romantic?

oh I completely understand. I'm the same age and it does seem like everyone is settled but me and it gets hard. But I've decided to just 'do me', pursue my dreams and goals and be the best me I can be. Kinda corny really! :)

@thedumpyduchess Thank you hun love yours too :) I need that cheetah/zebra print dress in my life!!

@Folly Not corny at all!! I'm in the pursuit of happiness myself, I'm realizing that someone is going to come into my life when I'm at the happiest point with myself. It's a struggle but I'm working on it. Who said life was easy? Ha! Thanks for the love hun! :)

So glad I found your blog.

I feel the same way. My on again off again relationship of ended recently and I feel like I'll never meet anyone...I'm sooo used to my ex. Everything feels off....I'm not even dating yet.

I can't.

I guess we just have to be patient and wait for what God has in store for us. I just like to think that He is either preparing me or my "man" for me.

Thanks Jen :) I'm praying I do
@Inez Girl! I'm trying to hold on to the little faith I have left. But as you said God has a plan. I just wish he would send me a little preview LOL!

I have been feeling the exact same way-until I met my current boyfriend. I'm sure you've heard this before-but it's really when you stop looking, and start doing things for and by yourself when you find the guy that is meant for you. Good luck!

Thank you Erin for your kind words. I am starting to just focus on me and not try to predict the future. What can I say I am a work in progress. :) Congrats on finding your love.
