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?
