    So I'm sitting on the computer bored. I'm probably bored because I'm sitting on my computer, but that's besides the point.

    So I navigate my way to Facebook, and start to scroll down my news feed and .... Babies. Babies, babies, babies, pictures of babies.

    Im only 22 and all these girls are my age range. Half dont have a serious guy figure in their life. Some dont know who the dad is. My sister even just got knocked up by god knows who.

    I feel like everyone in my generation is gonna have a kid by the time I feel like settling down. Not that I'm completely against dating a girl with a kid, but its not ideal.

    Does Anyone else ever find them self facing this reality?

    CLIFF NOTES
    -Everyone seems to have a kid
    -Maybe I should find friends without kids
    -By the time Im 30 there wont be any of the aforementioned

    all my friends my age are having kids and yeah there are more peeps i hang out with that have kids...

    the days of partying with homies and chicks just for the hell of it are gone. Now we have to wait for approval or someone to find a baysitter before going out.

    Sounds like you need a better friend group.


    I only have a few friends with babies, the ones that do still live in the town I left and family members in the sticks. Not many, if any of my college friends have babies. :shrug:

    you're a little young for this midlife crisis type shit

    just remember the great thing about 22 year olds
    you keep getting older but they're always 22

    I want you to print this post out, and show it to her.

    That should fix your problem.

    This is already reality.

    There are 3 types of women left (ie, not married or otherwise off the market for good)

    - Hot, with kids
    - Ugly/obese
    -Snookie/party whore/min wage 'still in school at 30 living with mom' types

    bride.ru

    just do it.

    It seems like lately a lot of people I know are having kids. I swear a few of them were conceived during the October snow storm. I am one of the last of my friends to not be married or have a kid. I am getting married next year and if we decide to have kids we will have to start moving on that soon afterwards so I am not that old guy with a young kid working til I am 80 to pay for them.

    To the op your 22. Enjoy your early 20s and make some new friends if you need to. Most of my friends, cousins, coworkers, either don't have kids yet or waited til late 20s early 30s.

    One of my good friends and his wife are expecting their first and they're both 38. :(

    Granted, second marriage for each and both really wanted some little people, but fuck that. They didn't realize how good they had it.

    All my friends pretty much now all have kids, some working on their second, the only close couple we know are her sister and husband who have been trying for two yearsbut having difficulties :(.

    i am literally the only person in my entire group of real friends that doesn't have a kid who is engaged/married. Even my best friend has a kid, but he had his in right after highschool so.his kid is already like 16 or 17

    Not saying there's anything wrong with having kids. I just wouldn't want to start at my age or older.

    You know why we don't hang out much any more. It's got a lot to do with babies.

    There's a difference between not liking kids and not wanting to spend an evening hanging out with your friends AND their kids.

    Turbo, just dump her.

    We just had this conversation last weekend....everyone we know just fucks and makes kids all day long...with all these figures flying around about 90% of women of child bearing age being on birth control, it would make you wonder how effective it can truly be when 75% of them are pregnant....wtf

    So you're 22 and you haven't knocked a bitch up yet? Damn son, you need to get out more. You're keeping your wild oats in the bag, and that shit shoulda been planted 2 seasons ago. You ought to have 3 or 4 baby mamas by now.
