Motivated by the "farewell fuck" thread, and by the fact that many of you sad fucks have lead some intriguing lives, and that many of you are also miserably/happily divorced or have ended long term relationships. I'm fairly young, so I want to know what to expect with the whole long-term deal. I've only ended one serious relationship (the rest were under 3 months, and faded away into a platonic state) Also, reading about people's misfortunes makes me feel better about what little I've accomplished. Pertinent alt. focus info: Spoiler Now, I am dating a woman 7 years my senior, and she's talkin' all "I want a baby soon" and shit. She's very successful, making easily 80 grand at a decent company, and for whatever reason likes my broke ass very much. She's very attractive, but almost 30, which freaks me the fuck out. All her lame friends are pumping out kids left and right, and I feel as if I am wasting her time and precious baby making years. Now, I'm not sure if I should stick with it for the long haul, or break it off citing "I'm too young, find some professional dude who wants kids". Note: "bitch was crazy" and "cheating whore" are not valid responses. Please elaborate. FOCUS: If you were in my shoes, 22 and about to graduate college, dating an older woman who's near ready to abandon the good life and settle for a family/career, what would you do? Keep in mind we've only been dating 8 months, so it's not too serious, but not too casual either. Edit: I also put in the "Crazy fuck buddy" thing because I was fucking around with one insane broad for about 6 months here and there. I kept telling her "we'll see what happens" and she interpreted that as "we will date and fall in love". Boy was she wrong, which lead her to pulling the "I might be pregnant" maneuver. After it was cleared, I never talked to her again. That's just a dick move, ladies, don't do it.
