Do you ever feel like you're older than your age? You look around and think 'what in the WORLD, are they thinking?' when it comes to the people your own age around you?
Yeah. That's me.
Maybe it's because I skipped the whole 'college life' thing and went straight into commuting for class and working full time. Then when I became old enough to drink - well, I got married.
Yeah, no drinking and partying days for this gal!
Maybe more than anything else, it was because I lived with my grandmother for several years and her slow pace life wore off on me. I don't know really.
At 18 I was searching for my husband.
At 21 I was married.
At 24 I was a mother.
At 25 1/2? Well... I'm still married and a mother, but I'm also a full-grown woman.
I don't relate to most other 20-something year olds. I find myself most comfortable around the 30's to 40's stage of people. 30 is the new 20 anyway, right?
So tell me - how is a girl to make friends if she doesn't relate to anyone else her own age? I'm old-fashioned, the complete opposite of modern and would rather spend my evenings quietly at home than out on the town.
Do any of you relate? How did you make friends? I'd love to hear your advice and stories!
