i feel the same but at 20
Being single is cheaper
@Elmato, yeah, only cause it's the fastest way to the end.
@That one lurker, that sounds like the opposite of a problem
@Elmato, nope not true, your rent is the same if its just you or two, same for heating and water and mostly for food l, but with two you have two incomes, in fact I'd go as far to say it makes better financial sense to get a partner just to live better rather than because your lonely lol
Those arent your only options, at 27 you should be financially stable. Find a nice young hot dumb girl
@Medic135, thats the step dad decision.
@Medic135, im 27. U are not financially stable at 27.
@All my Mizore, then you messed up
@Medic135, I've worked two jobs for several years, didn't spend beyond my means. Never bought anything fancy. At 28 I am not financially stable, because everytime I start getting to stable ground something happens that sets me back to 0. That might've worked for you 20 years ago but that is not the case for everyone.
@GonMoose the Great, I'm 4 years younger than you, stable af
@Medic135, Im 27, been teaching for almost 5 years. Im wifed up, got a baby, mortgage for my own place. Stable af
@Medic135, lol I had to jump to comments just to see millennials crying about how wrong you are.
I made some horrible decisions when I was 20-25. Worked my ass off without any college and bought my first house at 29. New truck paid off and just bought a boat. I ain't rolling it cash but I am financially stable.
Our shjt generation doesn't understand is that you can't make a living working as a barista,stocking shelves at bed bath and beyond or at McDonald's (and no, that doesn't mean I think those jobs should pay more because they shouldn't) and have to work hard, not just hold out your hand and cry for more.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, not the friendliest way to put it, but he got the spirit
@GonMoose the Great, success does not come because you turned up to two jobs on time and worked for somone else for years at a time
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, it's funny writing this comment now of all times, but how long can you survive without working for money, literally stop work and sit on your sofa, the amount of days you get before somone turns up to take stuff back is how wealthy and stable you are, most...... And I mean most, can only go around 30 days, to me that's not stable that's fighting
@butternut squash, do you want an actual answer or is this a rhetorical question? Cause me personally, I could go probably about 2 years if I stopped buying and paying for shjt I don't need. Sell my boat, don't go out partying/spending money on the weekend. Just eating and keeping the electricity/water on in my home. A solid 2 years, maybe more
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, I can see that being true, most couples can live as cheaply as just one person, so the average income of £37k $56k, if your a frugal person you could bunker down and last out, but that wasn't my point, a lot of people don't really understand the system they are part of, you're designed from birth to pay tax, and only a few are aloud to escape,
@Medic135, I am 36 and divorce left me financially unstable. No kids. So I date a financially stable 27 year old.
@Medic135, I've been financially stable since 26. Would have been earlier but I had an ex wife that didn't understand "savings". All you have to do is develop any skill, go to work, and don't spend outside your means. 28 now and I have a savings, investments, and will be debt free (no car payment) this time next year. I do not make what most people would consider good money.
@downvoterist, lit fam, good job playin life
@7sideways, way to turn the tables my boi
@butternut squash, depends where you live I guess? Ive got about 2 weeks paid sick leave and another 2 weeks annual leave saved up.
@Medic135, i have never had a "real" job yet how am I supposes to be financially stable?
@G1ngerB0y, this sounds like its your doing
@Medic135, oddly not exactly but yeah it does sound like it
@Medic135, Right? Just turned 30 and the world OPENED 😏
Be single and causally date women who also aren’t looking for anything serious so you can gain more confidence and focus on your goals, then as the time comes set your sights for something serious and take your time finding the one that makes you happy regardless of what society or your family is telling you to do.
@megamanx181x, ^THIS. I'm actually 27 and don't plan on getting married for at least another 10 or even 15 years. If I haven't found anyone worth staying monogamous with at that point then I'll probably go on a romance tour in the Philippines, Ukraine, Colombia or some other developing country known for having beautiful exotic women and marry such a girl in her late teens or early twenties and see how it goes from there
You could also join the 27 club. Thats another viable option
You seem to have forgotten that path to cougars who were too career-focused to find anyone until now
Ill pick the ugly girls over the stepdad bullsh!t.
@CocoasBro, why? You are just there to smash anyways... find yourself a hottie with a kid.... is better than being alone and with ugly chicks that can’t even get your wee wee to want to come out and play
@seeUpee, fair point. But i dont wanna raise another dudes kid. Not my ideal scenario.
@CocoasBro, I feel ya. Have a bro that is... and is pretty bad. It is maaaaaaajor baggage! Just saying if I had to pick one of the three, not my ideal scenario at all as well
If I had to pick one of them I would pick step dad with a really hot mamacita
@seeUpee, Ah a man of culture i see. Muy bein amigo.
@LaDarkProphet, muchas gracias jefe!
@seeUpee, theyre called MILF
@AussiePatrick, I like Mamacitas better
There are so many other options. Some of them are very kinky.
I'm probably technically a monk but don't know it yet
I turned 25 yesterday, and it seems like these are the only options I see too. Big sad.
I'd take an ugly girl who knows how to be a decent human being and take care of herself and us lol
You forgot psychopaths
I didn’t come here to be attacked like this
Wait just a damn second. What EXACTLY are you planning to do with your stepdad?
I’m just dating a hot mom who I told specifically that I would never be a father figure to her kids. It’s working pretty good. Moms don’t want new dads for their kids, they want dick and I’m happy to supply.
Be single and keep your money.
You could choose the "gay" option, no children, no ugly girls.
@AussiePatrick, thinking outside the box I see
Or... hear me out.... wait til her kids are over 18.
Don't date anyone who won't split a bill or exclusively uses shopping for therapy. Don't look for a "nice" girl on the internet. Shave your face. Put on a shirt that's clean. Don't talk about women like they're trophies. Try to have a conversation instead of gaming 24/7. Done.
Don't attack me like this
I'll take all three
But I'm married with 2 kids and 27, do I have to choose one of these
