Yes, that's life. We grow apart and as we age it becomes harder to make friends. There is a podcast about this topic from The Art Of Manliness, you should check it out.Yea, I know we all get boring as we age right? This isn't about people getting older and their priorities changing this post is about why 35+ year old dudes all of a sudden want to sit home with their wives.
I'm 37, married with an awesome wife and daughter. I have everything to be happy about in life. I love spending time with them. My social circle was always good and still have the same friends I had from my partying years. Some are married, some have girlfriends but they all seem to not want to do anything ever but sit home with their partners.
I think part of the situation is I own my own business and we do OK financially but I don't interact with a lot of people in my current position. It's a very small company and we make ends meet but there isn't a lot of social aspect there for me.
I like working out (injured currently so I can't spend more time in the GYM) cars and whiskey. Maybe I need to find a meetup group or something with some like minded dudes.
Anyone else run into this issue?
Ultimately, you will have a greater chance at deeply and GENUINELY connecting with someone while practicing or attending something you are passionate about. Common interests will bring people closer together, especially us as men, we connect while DOING. That is our nature.
