It won’t last forever

That’s the truth of life right there - whatever it is will change. You can have looks and charm and that can get you lots of attention when you’re young, but if you don’t develop something else along the way, like actual character, you’ll find yourself confused and lonely when you’re in your senior years. All those guys I know who spent most of their lives partying and avoiding growing up at all costs are struggling now. They either never got married or they just fooled around too much and got dumped. Now they don’t have the looks anymore and the young women don’t want them and the ones their own age are too smart to fall for their bs. They ruined their livers with too much partying, and they were too busy f’ing around to go to school for a real education, so now they’re uneducated and the world has left them behind. One of my buddies is a poster child for this kind and hanging around with him now is painful. He looks shell shocked like he never saw it coming even though the signs have been there for a long time but he refused to change. I know it isn’t just guys who do this because I know a woman who always just got by on her looks too, until they faded and now she looks kind of desperate too. I guess what I’m trying to say is that beauty is nice but it’s the inner beauty that makes the person worthy.

Whatever is easy for you

If your own character isn't enough for you or if it just sucks that bad, I suppose your happiness and entire reason for living would be dependent on being with the character of someone similar to yourself.

A little heavy on the cliché's. Some people are independent or solitary and have been in relationships only to find it wasn't for them. No they're not selfish, single people have friends, family to care for and can contribute to society through the arts and voluntarism.

Maybe we're all in a certain position in life because we don't have free will? I'm going to get a little philosophical here, but perhaps we are not aware of anything, except of what we are aware of. I'm as much in control of your next thought as much as you are. Most of what's in your mind is subconscious, and you are not in control of it, we don't know how it works, or how to control it. So no, we are hostages of the universe, our environment, our genes, our upbringing, our neurological configuration, and our subconscious.

Even if we were in full control of our subconscious, what would it mean to have "free will"? Where would this "free will" come from? A soul? A god? Randomness? It's kind of arrogant of you to judge someone for being single into middle-age because they partied too much, since as a species, we have so few answers. Just a thought.

Yeah, I happen be a single male and I'm certainly not one of those irresponsible people. Drinking and partying with losers was never my forte. And I knew better than to associate with groups that often got into mischief. Being single alone does not make you a foolish person. So please don't generalize. Okay?

While I understand your point of view, I am no position to tell anyone how they should live their lives whatsoever. A lot of young people haven't experienced life to understand how to deal with the consequences that come afterwards. Through my experience I've learned that it's best to let people see things for themselves.

MMkay so someone had no life when they were young and now that they're getting on in years are gleeful at the apparent discomfort of certain formerly youthful party animals?

I had a certain amount of wild times in my youth, and now that those days are gone have few regrets.

What would bother me is if I'd have never had the guts to go out and live my life, for better or worse.

It’s not the single part

Feb 6, 2024 at 5:57pm

It doesn’t have anything to do with whether someone is single. It’s about what they choose to focus on in their life that has the biggest impact when they’re old. I’m talking only about someone who has spent their whole life chasing good times and partying, and who is now in shock because it’s all over and they threw away every good thing that was offered in favour of the next best thing. If all you focus on is material and how you look, you become a very shallow person. Being single doesn’t equal being shallow, but being materialistic and obsessed with appearance does.

Enough is enough

Understandable, but I don’t agree with a lot of what you said. Whether some people choose to ruin their lives or not, is there personal choice. Really, that’s none of your business. there’s nothing worse than watching someone share their thoughts through the filter of what other people do with their lives. Some people really don’t have their priorities straight and no offense, but judging by your post, it shows.
